Audience Reviews for A Suitable Boy: Season 1

  • Dec 03, 2021
    Besides the fact that it is made based on Vikram Seth's A suitable Boy, which makes it interesting to constantly draw on your story recall as you had read it; Mira Nair and all her characters allow you to choose the layer you are comfortable with - from a simple story of three suitable boys vying for the heart Lata - timeless traditional and yet moden. And on other layers, experience the socio political backdrop of 1950s of young india struggling with a myriad of issues - landless farmers and the landlords, elite lifestyles and commoners, rural and urban divides, Muslim and Hindu divides, each character is a complex bundle of identities of that time, a lot of which shaped and continues to shape Indian life even today. Your own sensibilities will find their shallows in this beautifully made series. Lata, Maan and Meenakshi characters are particularly noteworthy.

    You 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.
