The Reluctant Fundamentalist KA Rating 3 out of 5


  • Mira Nair


  • Riz Ahmed
  • Kate Hudson
  • Liev Shreiber
  • Kiefer Sutherland
  • Om Puri


Charismatic Brit Riz Ahmed is perfectly cast as Changez Khan, a Princeton-educated Pakistani who had Wall Street in his hand before 9/11 soured his American dream. Now a lecturer back in Lahore, Changez finds himself telling his story to a US journalist (Liev Schreiber) while under suspicion for the recent kidnapping of a foreign professor. Tension and alienation fed by fear and mistrust: the 9/11 effect is deftly encapsulated in this absorbing adaptation of the novel by Moshin Hamid, enhanced by Mira Nair's level-headed direction and interesting support from Kate Hudson and Keifer Sutherland.
