Adapted from Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, Rajiv Menon’s hit film tells of two sisters with very different personalities, who are both looking for love. Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai Bachchan plays extrovert Meenakshi, alongside her more self-controlled sister Sowmya (Tabu). The siblings are to the manor born and in demand by many suitors, but as financial disaster hits their family, the women’s lovers show their true colours. With fabulous songs by A. R. Rahman and cinemascope song sequences filmed everywhere from Egypt to the Scottish Highlands, this well-told, classic commercial movie has it all.
