Henderson is not Firth but he was great as Darcy and has those eyes. Despite what seem like many criticisms, this film had a warm, fun feel-good factor that it was supposed to have. And Martin Henderson was perfect as the American version of the disdainful Mr Darcy, this time Mr Will Darcy. Overall, I enjoyed the movie; it's great fun to watch it. I think that everyone should watch this movie and get insight into the lives of Indian families. Marsha Mason is seen briefly as Mrs. Bollywood song and dance routines aside, the lyrics were a bit cheesy but then so are most Rodgers and Hammerstein classics that I grew up watching - but that doesn't make the songs any less fun or catchy.
One wonders how they film these things without cracking up. Ash Rai did a great job and Martin Henderson was just perfect for the role of Mr. It's not a criticism; it's a fact!. Plus I believe that this was much better than Bend it Like Beckham. The songs are very typical, yes -- as are the dance routines, but that's all this is.
I also want to disagree with those who complain about the lack of chemistry between Rai and Henderson's characters because I think they work just fine; they're able to show the cultural clash well in the way their characters don't exactly sweep each other off their feet. One standout performance is by Nitin Chandra Ganatra as Kholi, the nerdy Americanized accountant. These Bollywood favorites cover the gambit of genres from romance to horror. This lighthearted fare fails to disappoint unlike what hard core critics has been saying. The large song and dance routines are a bit random, but then also become part of the backdrop for larger events of the movie to take place.
This movie deserves four stars!!!! What Gurinder Chadha has done here is create a very, very solid Bollywood movie. It's a matter of getting used to at least spoons, if not to knife and fork. It was apparent to everyone that Kohli did not have the slightest clue as to how to use his fingers for eating food! Bakshi is eager to find suitable husbands for her four unmarried daughters. I loved every minute of it! Not only can you watch Bollywood favorites now, but you can download them on all your devices for later viewing. Indira Verma acted pretty good too. He is amazing in this movie, I just saw it and yeah the songs are terrible and I was looking for the fast forward button in the theater but you cant say that the rest of the movie wasn't charming.
This movie is sure to be an experience for those of you not familiar with Bollywood cinema. Much of this takes place along with music and laughter what could be better? In the golden age of musicals, stars such as Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire had a whole sub-industry to draw on for good dancers who could also sing and act well, plus the technicians used to producing high-end musicals. Result: I found it to be very boring. The musical performances really make it a whole lot more than just a modernized version of an old book. Hendersen is wooden in most scenes. Also, Wickham's dealings with Darcy's sister could have been a bit more believable with more than just one line.
They are all acting greatly and makes us want to go and visit Amritsar!! Sonali Kulkarni is also a very good actor she was much praised for her role in Amol Palekar's Dayraa, for example , though she played here a non-important role. Not only can you look for your favorite movies with English captions, but you can search for your favorite actors, as well. Girl in Jeans and sport-shoes going to the field also seemed to me a bit out of place. She dislikes the Hindu tradition of the arranged marriage, and disrespects the thought of outside corruption of India. Netflix When they say has a little something for everyone, they mean it.
One last thing: this film is not Bollywood, but it is done in the style of Bollywood and perhaps that's why the self-conscious aspects of the movie also succeed. A charming tale of Love and and Happiness, be careful this Film may make you smile! 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. This movie, however, did not show anyone smoking pot in Goa. I just saw this movie at a press show, and I have to admit, it was magnificent. I'm sure I'll see it again. The role of Lalita the Elizabeth role in the original book was perfectly cast - she was beautiful and she really held the whole movie together. I must admit for those who enjoy sad and depressing movies, this isn't one of them.
In my eyes, it was the perfect mix. Aishwarya Rai looks the best she ever has and turns in a confident performance in her first English speaking role - not always an easy transition. I think that was the point. Asihwarya Rai is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful women working in movies. This gorgeous creature plays Lalita, the unmarried girl at the center of the action. It wasn't overtaxing or edge of your seat or made your mind work, but, it was an entertaining, lovely, cute, colourful and cheerful movie that entertained me and left me smiling which is what movies are supposed to do. Go and see this film if you are open to something new - it really is quite a faithful re-work of the story, and it is very entertaining.
Martin Henderson is handsome and charming and the supporting cast too. It's a comic tale of love and romance. And as in all of Chandha movie's, the end is a delight!! If you didn't like this movie, it's only because you expected the same nonsense Hollywood has been pumping out for years. Being a South African Indian, I'm a huge fan of Bollywood films even though my Hindi is exceptionally limited and I can speak no other Asian language. Enjoyed every minute of it! One of the guys I know says that he can not marry any Indian girl now, because he got his Green card about a year ago, and he has been unsuccessful so far to get a long-term girlfriend within the United States. I loved the song No Life Without Wife and the scene afterwards where Darcy grabs Lalita in the rain is so intense.
