Given that this is set in modern time and in a different culture, I was pleasantly surprised how close they managed to stay to Austen's plot. This really is Pride and Prejudice, even though the dialogue is different and there are crazy musical numbers, which I loved. I found the Indian music and costumes very enjoyable and fun; Ashanti also has a great musical performance in this film.
I'm kind of ambivalent about the actors cast to play Lizzy and Darcy. They just aren't in the same league as the other actors who have played the roles so excellently. On the upside, I loved Mr. Collins and there is a very funny performance by the nerdy sister.
I found this to be a enjoyable refreshing take on Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
