The Jane Austen novel ''PrideAndPrejudice'' is updated and reset in modern day India and given the full {{Bollywood}} treatment. Directed by GurinderChadha (who also directed ''BendItLikeBeckham'').
----
!!Provides examples of:
* AdaptationNameChange: Everyone, except Will Darcy (and even then!) Elizabeth is Lalita, Jane is Jaya, Caroline is Kiran, and so it goes on.
* AllMusicalsAreAdaptations: ''PrideAndPrejudice'' with a Bollywood twist. What's not to like?
* ArchEnemy: Darcy and Wickham with a modern vengeance.
* ArrangedMarriage: We see the wedding of such a couple early in the movie. Also, Catherine has hopes of arranging her son's marriage to American businesswoman Anne.
* BetaCouple: Jaya and Balraj.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Kiran is not a nice person. Darcy's mom is also not nice. Anne also acts rather unpleasant, simultaneously mispronouncing Lalita's name and comparing it with [[{{Lolita}} a certain 1997 movie]] (although, bizarrely, [[OlderThanTheyThink not the 1958 novel]]).
** YMMV with Kiran. She certainly loses far more gracefully than her literary counterpart, and even appears to be enjoying herself at the wedding at the end, a marked contrast from her attitude at the beginning.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Lalita's younger sisters Maya and Lakhi.
* ButNotTooForeign: The character based on Mr. Bingley, Balraj, grew up in England.
* TheCameo: {{Music/Ashanti}} appearing as herself, singing one of the songs.
* TheCasanova: Wickham.
* CompositeCharacter:
** The younger sisters Maya and Lakhi replace the three younger sisters of the original.
** Kiran Balraj here stands in for both of Bingley's sisters from the original.
* CrowdSong: More than one, but ''When Marriage Comes To Town'' is amazing.
* CultureClash: Hmmm an American and a girl from India, what could possibly go wrong?
* DaddysGirl: Lalita and her father are the best of friends.
* DistantDuet: Lalita and William Darcy have one that [[DeletedScene was cut from the movie]].
* FairytaleWeddingDress: The wedding outfits at the end are pretty grand, and Lalita wears a western style one in an ImagineSpot.
* FallingInLoveMontage: All of ''that'' happened in one night?
* FateDrivesUsTogether
* ForegoneConclusion: Anyone who's read or seen ''PrideAndPrejudice'' probably has a pretty good guess who Lalita's going to end up with.
* GiftedlyBad: The Cobra Dance is kind of astonishing in a not good way.
* GrandRomanticGesture: At the end of the film, with drums.
* IWantGrandkids: This is the concern of the girls' mother Manorama Bakshi.
* KarmaHoudini: An aversion compared to what happened in the book. Wickham gets slapped hard by both Lalita and Lakhi.
* MarryForLove: Lalita wishes this over an arranged marriage.
* RelationshipSabotage:
** Balraj's sister Kiran doesn't really like Jaya or Lalita.
** Darcy also does this, as per the book.
* RuleOfFunny: Darcy and Wickham have a fight in front of an old kung fu movie, that, despite them not even paying attention to the movie, matches the fight scene shot for shot.
* SettingUpdate: The movie takes place in India, England and California.
* SmittenTeenageGirl: Running off with an older man may sound romantic...
* SpontaneousChoreography: Especially "When Marriage Comes To Town".
