But without commenting on the film, I couldn't help but think as I watched it what an underrated and underused actor Irrfan Khan is. I want to start a petition to have Khan in every film made from here on out. He elevates every movie he is in no matter how small the role (see The Amazing Spider-Man). If you haven't seen Mira Nair's The Namesake, seek it out, if for no other reason that to watch his magnificent performance. The man is a treasure, seriously.
