hmm....I always prefer book over movies!!But if i have to choose i'd go for namesake.(though book was far more better but Tabu's performance was brilliant in the movie)...other is parinita.. characters were well represented...both saif and vidya did a great job..both the book and the film were amazing in their own way.

nice topic btwClap

1. Name of the movie.
Parineeta

2. Name of the Book its based on.
Parineeta

3. Why do you like it or hate it?
I really liked because it captured the ara of the time in Kolkatta and truly showed it beautifully! Embarrassed
