The BBC’s six-part adaptation of Vikram Seth’s 1993 tome A Suitable Boy starring Tabu, Ishaan Khatter and Tanya Maniktala, the drama which is directed by Mira Nair has finally released on Netflix today. And before you invest your time into the 6-episode series, let us tell you what you can expect.


For the unversed, the film set in the 1950s tells the story of university student Lata (Maniktala), coming of age in north India in 1951 at the same time as the country is carving out its own identity as an independent nation and is about to go to the polls for its first general election. Torn between duty to her family and the excitement of romance, Lata embarks on a journey of love, desire and heartache as three very different suitors vie for her hand. Her choice plays out against the tumultuous political backdrop of India in the 1950s.


While the film is receiving praise for not having even one white character in the feature, some voiced disappointment over the pace, acting and a lack of connection with its content in the show. However, here are the Twitter reactions worth reading before you dive deep into the six-hour-long series.

Horrible adaption of a brilliant book. The characters spoke weird, the costumes were shoddily researched..heck even Tabu and Ishan couldn't save this disaster. Epic fail Mira Nair.

I read the book over 10 years ago, it is 1347 pages. A difficult task translating it to the screen. Books are always better than the movie they are based on. Mira Nair is a great story teller, she and her group have done a great job

I don't agree. Sometimes books need to get to the point. I think the great thing about television and movies is they get to the point and that's why they're memorable.
