FILMS: Watching "The Namesake" in NYC - a quick review of Mira Nair's new movie
November 02, 2006

I attended last night's NYC debut of "The Namesake," Mira Nair's film version of Jhumpa Lahiri's novel. It was the opening night of Aroon Shivadasani's Indo American Arts Council Film Festival.

To read my take on the movie and why every desi in the U.S. needs to mark March 9, 2007, on their calendars, see my posting at SAJAforum.org, the SAJA blog: http://www.sajaforum.org/2006/11/films_watching_.html
