A Suitable Boy, On Netflix, Is Filmy In The Best Sense Of The Word
‘A Suitable Boy’ is a glamourised and Bollywood-esque rendition of its source material.
It is both celebratory and elegiac, and reminds us of the times when cynicism hadn’t completely overpowered optimism, a feeling that we can do with in these times.
It's just a little disheartening to see a story that rightfully belongs to Indians being snatched away and fetishised in such a disrespectful manner.
The signature stamp is so impressionable that the residual feeling is that of fulfilment.
