Bride & Prejudice compares couple-guided and family-arranged marriages
Bride & Prejudice acquaints audiences with relocations of Hampsire-born English author Jane Austen’s (December 16, 1775 – July 18, 1817) novel Pride and Prejudice to twenty-first century venues in:
• Amritsar, India;
• London, England;
• Los Angeles, California.
The romantically comic adaptation brings together the initially interpersonally, psychologically, and socio-economically mismatched pair of:
• Lalita Bakshi (Aishwarya Rai), a second-eldest daughter proud of her family’s cultural integrity and prejudiced against the ruthlessness of big-city lifestyles and money-driven decision-making;
• William Darcy (Martin Henderson), an American businessman proud of his entrepreneurial successes and prejudiced against the inefficiencies of non-Westernized countries and tradition-guided cultures.
Bride & Prejudice thereby communicates the same timelessly deep truths as the original by remaining timely but true to characters and plot.
