Adapted from Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, Rajiv Menon’s hit film tells the story 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, their lovers soon 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, glossy commercial movie has it all.
Please note this rare digital version of the film has been specially made from the original film print and therefore shows a few signs of aging.
