Critics' opinions: A Namesake
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
March 29, 2007
Mira Nair's The Namesake opened in India last week and found a lukewarm reception at the box office. It had been doing the rounds of many film festivals all around the world winning rave reviews wherever it went. Irfaan Khan's and Tabu's performances were being hailed as great efforts by almost all
the brains of the film fraternity. But all that has turned out to be a naught at the box office. People just do not seem to care about what the critics say. In fact the number of people turning up to see the movie is very low, better not mention any such thing as word of mouth.

Also, some critics in India have branded the movie as just an above average effort. Some have felt that the movie has just too many commercial trappings including a spoof on a Bollywood song to be accorded a class status. They have branded it as a good entertainer. Even this billing has failed to lift the fortunes of the movie at the box office. Looks like critics' opinions are just a namesake.
