Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Ambiguity is at the heart of the novel, but Nair is never quite sure what to do with it.
Fresh: This sure-handed adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's international best seller shows Nair at her best.
Rotten: Despite the charismatic efforts of the British actor Ahmed, The Reluctant Fundamentalist gets bogged down in proselytizing and plot.
Fresh: Nair has found a real gem in Riz Ahmed, who anchors the film with a charismatically watchable performance. He's in virtually every frame and you hang on his every word.
Loved the book, loved the movie even more
Good cast, great direction.
So beautiful it hurts
Just watched it for the second time on iTunes - first time was on a big screen at the cinema. It's beautiful like a blow to the head that bursts in mini glitter explosions. The colours. The truths. I understand why the average american would not be able to appreciate it, though. It must be hard to see your preconceptions being shattered by such beauty and depth. Still, a must see. So beautiful it hurts.
Better than the book and a must see movie
