Bride & Prejudice Synopsis

A Bollywood update of Jane Austen's classic tale, in which Mrs. Bakshi is eager to find suitable husbands for her four unmarried daughters. When the rich single gentlemen Balraj and Darcy come to visit, the Bakshis have high hopes, though circumstance and boorish opinions threaten to get in the way of romance.

Chaman Bakshi lives in Amritsar, India, with his wife, Manorama, and four daughters namely, Jaya, Lalita, Lakhi, and Maya. Manorama would like to get her daughters married to rich families so that they live comfortably. She is bitter because Chaman refuses to immigrate to London, England, when her brother wanted to sponsor them. She is pleased when she gets a proposal from the Bingley family for their son, Balraj. Balraj arrives with Caucasion friend, William Darcy, and gets to meet Jaya, and instantly likes her. They, along with William and Lalita, travel to Goa, where Lalita meets a young man named Johny Wickam. She likes Johny and invites him to their house. Manorama does not approve of William and Johny, and would prefer that Lalita marry Kohli from California. Then things take an unexpected turn, Balraj returns home; William offends Lalita; Kohli meets and marries Chandra Lamba; Lakhi is taken in by Johny Wickam. Quite upset at these turn of events, the Bakshis find consolation that they have been invited to Kohli's wedding and they travel to California, with a stopover in London, so that they can meet with Balraj. They find Balraj is not available, and is in New York. Disappointed they travel to California that's where William meets and proposes to Lalita. It is after this proposal that Lalita finds out why Balraj has broken contact with her family, and what William really thinks about India and the Bakshis, and it is these findings that will change her life forever.

Bride & Prejudice Preview

'Bride and Prejudice' is the Indianized adaptation of the Jane Austen classic 'Pride and Prejudice' by director Gurinder Chaddha, who struck to fame two years back with the super hit 'Bend it Like Beckham'.

The only difference between the Jane Austen novel and Chaddha's story is that while in the original the clash between Darcy and Elizabeth crops due to their social status, but the conflict between Darcy and Lalita in Chaddha's movie is a result of their cross cultures.

In 'Bride and Prejudice' the character of William Darcy is played by New Zealand actor Martin Hendersen, while Bollywood stunner Aishwarya Rai plays Lalita.

The others in the cast include Namarata Shirodkar, Meghna Kothari, Anupam Kher, Peeya Rai Choudhary, Naveen Andrews, Nadira Babbar, Indira Verma and Daniel Gillies.

At the center of the movie is the Bakshi family comprising of Mr. Bakshi (Anupam Kher), his wife (Nadira Babbar) and their four daughters Jaya (Namrata Shirodkar), Lalita (Aishwarya), Maya (Meghana Kothari) and Lucky (Peeya Rai Choudhary).

Both Jaya and Lalita are in a marriageable age and Mr. And Mrs. Bakshi are keeping their eye open for suitable grooms. Coming from an average earning family with their Indian roots still intact, the parents of the girls are looking for men with Indian origin and also know that they won't be able to give much dowry.

The first man to catch Mr. Bakshi's eye is Balraj, anglicized as Mr Bingley (Naveen Andrews). Balraj is a British Asian from London and the new neighbor to the Bakshi family. Mrs Bakshi sees him as a prospective husband for Jaya.

Then comes into picture Balraj's best friend, Darcy, who falls head-over-heels in love with Lalita on a social meet. But Lalita is quite reserved in showing her feelings. Rest of the story is about how Darcy, an American hotelier, wins Lalita's love and how he convinces her parents to accept him as her prospective groom.
