Thanks to Violet from Violet Crush for recommending the movie Bride & Prejudice. I had omitted it from my Pride & Prejudice Goes to the Movies post, and that's because I had never seen it.
This musical, yep it's basically a musical, is simply delightful. Bollywood director Gurinder Chadhadid and writer Paul Mayeda Berges did a fabulous job modernizing Austen's classic story and moving it to India and Los Angeles.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, the movie, except for few songs, is in English. Here's a peek:
