Tropes used in Bride and Prejudice include:
- All Musicals Are Adaptations: Pride and Prejudice with a Bollywood twist. What's not to like?
- Arch Enemy: Darcy and Wickham with a modern vengeance.
- Arranged Marriage: We see the wedding of such a couple early in the movie. Also, Catherine has hopes of arranging her son's marriage to American businesswoman Anne.
- Beta Couple: Jaya and Balraj.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Kiran is not a nice person. Darcy's mom is also not nice.
- Bratty Teenage Daughter: Lalita's younger sisters Maya and Lakhi.
- But Not Too Foreign: The character based on Mr. Bingley, Balraj, grew up in England.
- Casanova: Wickham.
- Composite Character: The younger sisters Maya and Lakhi replace the three younger sisters of the original.
- Likewise, Kiran Balraj here stands in for both of Bingley's sisters from the original.
- Crowd Song: More than one, but When Marriage Comes To Town is amazing.

- Grand Romantic Gesture: At the end of the film, with drums.
- I Want Grandkids: This is the concern of the girls' mother Manorama Bakshi.

- Marry for Love: Lalita wishes this over an arranged marriage.
- Relationship Sabotage: Balraj's sister Kiran doesn't really like Jaya or Lalita.
