In Theaters Today: Aisha

Looks like Aisha, a new Bollywood version of Jane Austen's classic Emma is not only showing in theaters in India, but it is also showing worldwide today (August 6th)! Check out Aisha's Theater listing here to see if it's showing anywhere near your city or country!

Hmm, it's not showing in my city/state (Florida). I would love to see Aisha as I love Bollywood movies (even though I'm not Indian nor do I speak Hindi, but with English subtitles, beautiful and colorful costumes,  energetic music, and singing and dancing...they are so fun to watch!) and this one, also, is a Jane Austen movies related (I've seen Bollywood versions of JA's P&P and S&S both starring Aishwarya Rai and I loved and enjoyed watching them esp. B&P!) Unfortunately, I probably won't see this movie (unless they add one here in my city...) until the DVD is released here in the U.S., which won't be for a while, much like Bride & Prejudice back in 2004, when it was showing in selected cities and I didn't get to see it till the DVD was released the following year.

Anyway, for those of you who might be interested in seeing this film today or this weekend. Here are more info. about...

Synopsis
Aisha is a girl with a simple diktat - everyone's business is her business. Arjun is a boy with even a simpler set of beliefs - Aisha should mind her own business. Caught in the Delhi upper class world with its own set of social rules, Aisha navigates her world with a great sense of style and even greater optimism. Caught in her web are her best friend Pinky, the small town girl Shefali, the west Delhi boy Randhir and the hunk Dhruv. Aisha will make sure everyone dances to her tune. And all Arjun wants to do is disentangle that web and get Aisha out of an impending sticky mess. Who will succeed and who will succumb? Welcome to Aisha's fabulous world where playing cupid is as easy as 123...if only that Arjun would stay out of her way!

The film transports Jane Austen’s story to present-day Delhi.  Directed by Rajshree Ojha with the screenplay by Devika Bhagat.
