Nice movie. May be the book will be better! I donno why, but i always avoided buying this book by Jhumpa Lahiri.
Ashima and Ashok migrate to the US in the 1970s. Ashima gives birth to a baby boy and the US people need that the boy be named immediately. Ashok decides to name him as 'Gogol', just for namesake. Eventually this funny name affects the guy a lot. But his father tells him as to why the name is very special and such stuff. It also brings into focus, the importance of our parents. We often dont realize it, coz we take somethings for granted. They manifest themselves when they are not around. One of the few movies which have made my eyes go wet.
Tabu and Irfan Khan have done a splendid job. News is also floating around that Tabu is in the line for oscars.
