PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE!
Join us as we celebrate all things Bollywood — the colours, the costumes, the cuisine — and the screening of the blockbuster film BRIDE & PREJUDICE. In addition, as with all our Film Events, we’re screening more than just the film. The night will include guest appearances by the incredible Bollywood Sisters! We’ll have you dancing in the aisles as we embrace the bold, joyous vibrancy of the planet’s biggest film industry. Also, our chef Dan Kellie will be offering a special Indian menu created especially for the night, for purchase pre-film.
About the film: A colourful collision of cultures and attitudes, BRIDE & PREJUDICE is an energetically vibrant Bollywood-style modern reworking of Jane Austen’s classic tale about love and marriage. It’s a funny, festive and exotic twist on the familiar tale, with Mrs. Bakshi eager to find suitable husbands for her four unmarried daughters. When two handsome gentlemen come to visit, the Bakshis have high hopes, though circumstance and boorish opinions threaten to get in the way of romance. This was the breakout English-speaking role for one of the planet’s biggest and most beautiful superstars, the stunning Aishwarya Rai.
About the Bollywood Sisters: Bollywood is the world’s biggest film industry, producing more films every year than Hollywood. Most Bollywood films are musical melodramas with choreographed high energy dance scenes interspersed through the film, and Bollywood music and dance is a beautiful mixture of classical Indian, hip-hop, Latin and Bellydance.
The Byron Shire’s very own Bollywood Sisters, Shamila and Zerina, will be on hand to show us all how it’s done!
