Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | December 07, 2007

What holds it together are the subtle loving performances by Tabu and Khan, both Bollywoood stars. They never overplay, never spell out what can be said in a glance or a shrug, communicate great passion very quietly.

Jonathan F. Richards Film.com | April 22, 2007

It is a saga told in small pieces, a patchwork of short scenes that tumble after each other almost apologetically, as if they would love to linger a little longer, but there is too much to tell and only so much time in which to do it.

Eleanor Ringel Gillespie Atlanta Journal-Constitution | March 29, 2007

Intelligent and insightful, The Namesake celebrates family in a unique way.

Randy Cordova Arizona Republic | March 24, 2007

This is a wonderful movie.

Connie Ogle Miami Herald | March 23, 2007

A moving generational drama focusing on a Bengali family but searingly universal in its subtle, tender grasp of love, regret and the search for identity.

Tom Long Detroit News | March 23, 2007

The Namesake is three-fourths of a fine film. Which is, of course, far better than most.

Terry Lawson Detroit Free Press | March 23, 2007

Mira Nair has made one of the best movies about the immigrant American experience ever. And even if you know nothing about India and its customs, The Namesake is not a movie you have to get into.
