Synopsis

Student demonstrations are raging in Lahore, as young Pakistani professor Changez Khan talks of the glittering future he has ahead of him. But then 9/11 changes everything. Attitudes shift dramatically, and his very name and face render him suspect.

Our take

Mira Nair’s faithful adaptation of Mohsin Hamid’s bestselling novel is a piercing take on xenophobia and alienation in post 9/11 U.S.A. Profound in its analysis of capitalism and fundamentalism, this drama is enriched by Riz Ahmed’s succinct portrayal of the Muslim protagonist’s emotional dualities.
