| So disappointing - everything that was great in the novel is missing
Sad to say that this was so, so disappointing - everything that was great in the novel is missing. Hard to know who or what to blame the most - the choice of screenwriter, the poor direction, the wooden dialogue, the random changes between English and HIndi/Urdu, the miscasting of Mrs Mehra and especially Lata - Tanya Maniktala was definitely not a 'suitable girl' for the part! The only saving graces were the presence of Tabu and the music of Shujaat Khan. I don't think that anyone will be inspired to read Vikram Seth's novel after watching this BBC dramatisation, so would advise not wasting your time watching this but instead invest your time reading the novel.
