    EP #06 : Talking about 'A Suitable Boy', Novel & BBC Series feat. Megha Sharma | Not A Podcast with Nihit Parikh

    EP #06 : Talking about 'A Suitable Boy', Novel & BBC Series feat. Megha Sharma | Not A Podcast with Nihit Parikh

    In this episode of "Not A Podcast with Nihit Parikh", I along with a guest, Megha Sharma, talk about 'A Suitable Boy', a famous Indian novel written by author Vikram Seth and its BBC Television series directed by Mira Nair and Andrew Davies.

    There’s something about long-drawn, multi-threaded family sagas. A fascination that becomes habit in watching lives unfold with all their strange complexity, the simple yet irresolvable tensions between members and the oftentimes quirky motivations that guide them. All of which present necessary insights and grant us an easy omniscience as well. When a much-loved novel moves to become a greatly anticipated television series, part of the fun lies in matching the characters to their actor avatars, sizing up how faithful the adaptation is, and counting the deviations, if any. That it took 20 years for Mira Nair to convert A Suitable Boy,via Andrew Davies’s screenplay, into a BBC tele-series is a reflection of the challenges posed by the novel. It also speaks volumes of the novel’s enduring quality and how it describes an India as it once was, and in the many ways it remains so still. So sit back and enjoy as we take you on a journey of unfolding the tale of 1349 pages, 113 characters, and a 6 episode Netflix TV series: 'A SUITABLE BOY'! I hope you like the episode!
