Dir. Gurinder Chadha

Rating: [PG]

Aroview: Bollywood meets Hollywood in this rather original Jane Austen adaptation, with ex-pat Kiwi Henderson playing a blueblood American who falls into mutual loathing with a gorgeous Indian woman (Rai) in Amritsar, before they progress to tolerance, flirtation, and... you know the rest.

Although Henderson can't quite match Colin Firth's portrayal of the implacable romantic hero (who could?), the dir. of BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM manages to present Austen's witty cavortings with the array of side-plots expertly streamlined. Her take on Bollywood musical stylistics is also integrated with a sense of knowing irony and flamboyance, and the whole dish is tasty, highly spiced and appropriately irreverant.
