The Namesake (2006) Movie Reviewson rottentomatoes

"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."Roger Ebert
"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."Jonathan F. Richards
"Penn is just wrong for it."Roger Moore
"Intelligent and insightful, The Namesake celebrates family in a unique way."Eleanor Ringel Gillespie
"This is a wonderful movie."Randy Cordova
"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."Connie Ogle
"The Namesake is three-fourths of a fine film. Which is, of course, far better than most."Tom Long
"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."Terry Lawson
"Deserves credit for its graceful attempt to tell an all-American story with warm, unromanticized characters trying to discover who they are in a land too eager to impose its own definition on them."Keith Phipps
"The Namesake ambitiously reveals the gains and perils of assimilation, and it heightens awareness about how difficult it can be to strike the right balance between family demands and personal development."Robert Denerstein
"Though the film seems hurried in the last half hour -- most likely to get as much of the book covered as possible -- it still maintains a loveliness bridged by these two generations of Gangulis, whose disparate life experiences cannot bond them."Teresa Budasi
