‘Bride’ Tops, ‘Bewafaa’ Shines!

By Bollywood Hungama

It's BRIDE AND PREJUDICE all the way. Gurinder Chadha's latest flick has taken U.S.A. and Australia by storm and at the rate things are moving, the film is poised for a long, successful run in these two countries.


The latest Hindi release, BEWAFAA, has everything that the Indian diaspora looks for in a Hindi film - melodious music, a formidable star cast and a family-oriented theme. That explains why its opening weekend numbers in both U.K. and U.S.A. are impressive.
