The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Looks interesting. The book was great. I will never forget how Mohsin Hamid got all of Pakistan interested in contemporary fiction set in Pakistan. This book was great too.

The movie looks pretty good and I will probably take myself on a date to watch its midnight show on a quiet Friday evening with Nachos and a large soda.

My only gripe with Mira Nair is how local Pakistani actors are completely missing from the entire film. Its not like we have a dearth of good talented artists in Pakistan. Seems like the pull is for our Jack Bauer and Kate Hudson. Peppered in with the usual Om Puri. But what about actors from Pakistan? Why not give some of them a chance too?
