The Braveheart Will Take the Bride

A record-setting blockbuster—it's been playing continuously in India since 1995—this sprawling weepie is perhaps worth seeing as a cultural artifact, but only fans of Indian popular music and dance are likely to love it. A man and a woman living in London meet and fall in love while touring the continent, but she's been betrothed in India to a loutish family friend. Following her back to India, the boyfriend is advised to elope by the girl's mother and his own father; instead he embarks on a campaign to win her father's approval—he even makes a speech in praise of parental wisdom. Director Aditya Chopra knows his way around the heartstrings, but his camera cranes up and zooms in way too often. In English and subtitled Hindi. 189 min.
