I went into the theatre not expecting it to be spectacular but I waswrong. Everything from the acting to the music composition and thedialogue was amazing. Riz Ahmed's performance was terrific. This filmsheds light on America's deadly interventions in response to 9/11. Ayoung Pakistani Muslim goes to America, gets an education and becomessuccessful. When 9/11 occurs, that young man's life is challengedbecause he is harassed by police and at the same time feeling the painof his people. But does he become a fundamentalist and goes on amurderous spree on the invaders? Absolutely not. He remains peaceful.The reason is that there is no such thing as fundamentalism in Islam. Aperson who watches this film will see how peaceful Islam really is. Nowthat I've seen this film, I will definitely read the book.

This beautiful movie is about how the new era of fear is dividing Eastand West, featuring UK-based writer Mohsim Hamid's critically acclaimedbook, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, about the impact of Sept 11th onMuslims living abroad post 9/11 attacks & its psychological andpolitical damage. It's a tale of mixed loyalties and one man's journeyinto the heart of the conflict.

Hamid has published a novel about the aftermath of September 11th. It'sbased on a character whose life mirrors his own accomplishments, butwhose subsequent journey and fate is very different. The book isentitled "The Reluctant Fundamentalist".

The main character, Chengez, is living in New York at the time of theattacks. The new western hostility towards his country, to his people,and to an ancient and complex civilization shocks Chengez, to the core.He feels as though he has to take sides. Then, quite simply, he has acrackup, followed by a mysterious journey back to Pakistan that may ormay not lead to the embrace of fundamentalism.

At a café table in Lahore, a bearded Pakistani man converses with anuneasy American stranger. As dusk deepens to night, he begins the talethat has brought them to this fateful encounter . . .

Changez is living an immigrant's dream of America. At the top of hisclass at Princeton, he works at the elite valuation firm of UnderwoodSamson. He thrives on the energy of New York, and his budding romancewith elegant, beautiful Erica promises entry into Manhattan society atthe same exalted level once occupied by his own family back in Lahore.

But in the wake of September 11, Changez finds his position in hisadopted city suddenly overturned, and his budding relationship withErica eclipsed by the reawakened ghosts of her past. The romance isnegligible; Erica is emotionally unavailable, endlessly grieving thedeath of her lifelong friend and boyfriend, Chris. And Changez's ownidentity is in seismic shift as well, unearthing allegiances morefundamental than money, power, and maybe even love.

Told in a single monologue, the narrative never flags. Changez is byturn's naive, sinister, unctuous, mildly threatening, overbearing,insulting, angry, resentful, and sad.

Changez is in Manila on 9/11 and sees the towers come down on TV. Hetells the American, "...I smiled. Yes, despicable as it may sound, myinitial reaction was to be remarkably pleased... I was caught up in thesymbolism of it all, the fact that someone had so visibly broughtAmerica to her knees..." When he returns to New York, there is apalpable change in attitudes toward him, starting right at immigration.His name and his face render him suspect.

He exorcises that feeling and once again appreciates his home for its"unmistakable personality and idiosyncratic charm." While at home, helets his beard grow. Advised to shave it, even by his mother, herefuses.

His company sends him to Istanbul for another business valuation; hismind filled with the troubles in Pakistan and the U.S. involvement withIndia that keeps the pressure on. Beautiful screenplay and great Urdu-English blend of dialogues makes it really worth a watch on the bigscreen.

This movie challenged my views of American policy. I thought that itwas definitely written with an Indian audience as the demographic itwould do best in. We had an opportunity to listen to the Director (MiraNair) speak about this and her other movies. She told us "This movie isintended to start a conversation", and that it does. If you are aHollywood / blockbuster fan you probably will not enjoy this as much.If you are open- minded, watch film for more than just entertainment,and like Bollywood / Indian film, this is for you. I think that just as20 years ago film depicting disability, or sexuality was far lesspopular such is true about a film that illustrates a point of viewthat's not that of a gun toting American.
