I wasn’t too interested in this one as I had seen the Indian adaptation of this much loved Jane Austen novel in Rajiv Menon’s Priyuraalu Pilichindi/Kandukondein Kandukondein. But I checked it out because I do like watching such feel good stuff from time to time. The story as most people know is about two sisters and their rather varied journeys through life as they find their suitors. This is a story which everyone will like….it has love, suffering and betrayal but everything falls nicely into place towards the end….something which works very well for a movie adaptation. The only irritant I found is that it is a period drama. I somehow find it very hard to watch costume dramas especially set in England or France. Apart from this, it is a nice movie to watch even though it’s slow. The performances by Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman are all fine. But if you cannot bear slow dramas, then you can check out Rajiv Menon’s version.
