The first episode of A Suitable Boy aired in the UK on BBC One on July 26 and has been met with mixed reviews by fans on Twitter who were anticipating for the miniseries. A Suitable Boy is based on Vikram Seth's 1993 novel of the same name and was adapted by Andrew Davies while Mira Nair directed the six episodes. The ongoing miniseries is equipped with a stellar cast headlined by Tabu, Ishaan Khatter, Tanya Maniktala, Rasika Dugal and Ram Kapoor.

Fans of the book already know how lengthy the masterpiece is so to dial it down into mere six parts certainly has its challenges. International reviewers weren't mighty impressed with the series and Twitterati was also on the same boat. Many struggled to keep up with the pace of the show even though acting stalwarts like Tabu impressed as one would expect. However, there were some who enjoyed the first part and are expecting the latter parts to be more fruitful and engaging.

I think people all over the world will find it fascinating, especially people who are not privy to the lives of Indians, to discover the sights and sounds and how it was in that time period for them," Khatter explained to PTI.
