News & Interviews for A Suitable Boy: Season 1
It's a step forward for the BBC to back a majority Indian cast, which extended to much of the production team. Next time, hire an Indian writer.
A fascinating period piece that fuses elements of romantic drama and political thriller and wonders to what extent 'we can make our own happiness,' A Suitable Boy is an engrossing achievement.
There are few living filmmakers who use colour as aggressvely as Nair, and there is no denying she delighted in the world building exercise that Seth's novel afforded her.
Nair may specialize in candy for the senses, and who could blame a person, these days, for gorging themselves on it? But to the extent that A Suitable Boy transcends escapism, it's because she brought the substance along with the sparkle.
A Suitable Boy caricatures a time and a place, squashing and stretching the motion of a sweeping narrative until it suits the action of plot instead of the magnitude of emotion.
Boasting an outstanding cast from top to bottom, it is ultimately young Tanya Maniktala who really anchors the whole work. She is incredibly expressive, warm, and makes it easy to understand why Lata picks up admirers wherever she goes.
We're looking forward to seeing more of A Suitable Boy due to some fine performances, its sprawling scope and its historic perspective.
A Suitable Boy is always light on its feet, even when the storytelling begins to feel rushed. But maybe that's because I was so unwilling for it to end.
The metaphors don't stand, the dialogue is entirely off-putting, and the actors remain so conscious that they're playing characters that they forget to make the viewer see them as real people.
Mira Nair keeps describing A Suitable Boy as 'The Crown in brown'. That's reaching. 'Downton Bhaji' would have been more accurate.
Audience Reviews for A Suitable Boy: Season 1
Jan 16, 2021You don't have to see this unless you are fond of the genre or the director or the location. The setting is striking, no pun. The choices of the filmmaker please the eye. The color, the interior and exterior keep the plot going. Mira Nair, what a director.
