I too have read it !

I too have finished reading The Namesake just a week ago and found it touching. And am thrilled to know that its now a movie. But i will have to see it before i decide on it..Actually when i was reading it, it was so catchy,revealing and heart-touching that it became very difficult for me to leave it even to answer a telephone..and i read it in just 2 days flat!
Earlier, I had found similar catchy novels from Meera Syal...i read both her novels "Anita and me" and "Life is not all ha ha hee hee"....and must say that the emotions you feel while reading them are already written in it ! And I also saw the movie "Bhaji on beach" script written by Meera Syal, but found it too fast and irregular to sink in the same catchy feeling..:(
So the translation of this great novel of Jhumpa Lahiri to a great movie is yet to be ascertained, and i will eagerly wait till March then !

The Namesake review
by Nigel on Nov 11, 2006 09:42 PM

I caught The Namesake at the Toronto International Film Festival and it was a great film. And yes, I cried too. Here's my short review:

Mira Nairs (Monsoon Wedding) latest directorial effort, The Namesake, is an intriguing chronicle of the lives of an Indian couple who immigrates to New York City. Nair effectively explores the complexity of raising a family with traditional values while living in a new country. Tabu, one of Indias leading actresses, is incredible as the matriarch, but the films strength is largely drawn from Irfan Khan who portrays the quiet father figure. The Namesake is a heart wrenching motion picture about the importance of family and discovering ones path.
