Pride and Prejudice in hindi by Jane Austen World Literature full analysis
Pride and Prejudice gets the Bollywood treatment
Bride and Prejudice, the Indianised film version of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, which opens in Ireland and the UK next week, is not merely a glib renaming of the classic English novel of Regency snobbery and love, set in a robust Punjabi milieu featuring mostly Bollywood stars. It is a quick-witted, amusing and clever cross-cultural story that unfolds mostly in the holy Sikh city of Amritsar in northern India, London and the US, successfully capturing the essence of Austen's intertwined tale of class, social equality and romance. Kenya-born director of Indian origin Gurinder Chadha, herself a Sikh, deftly shows that Austen's axiom that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife remains valid even today even in conservative societies. She also manages to depict the silent, unstated sexuality of the book, through an unusual synthesis of East and West that will come as a welcome surprise to overseas viewers. Austen's delicate, very English ambience is delightfully transported to Amritsar's Golden Temple of the Sikhs and the city's exotic sights, smells, sounds and lusty humour. Long English cocktail dresses, stilettos and hats mingle with Punjabi salwar-kameezes or loose baggy trousers and knee-length shirts, elaborately embroidered shoes, casual sarongs and rainbow-coloured glass bangles.
