This should be quite a ride
I’ve been waiting for this for a long time, with a little trepidation, it’s always in play when books that portray such a complete and immersive world get adapted.
But Shantaram is off to a great start, and so far appears to be a clever adaption with well crafted locations (including some Melbourne landmarks cleverly woven in) and enough of the book’s storytelling to provide captivation.
The faux Aussie accent does grate a bit, but I suspect that will diminish over time – and so far all the characters are well realised and strike the right chord.
There’s enough revealed after the first 3 episodes to convince that Shantaram was worth the wait and will draw the audience in to its compelling atmosphere and journey.
Shantaram is quite well done with the atmosphere of Mumbai (Bombay) in the nineteen eighties portrayed accurately. The story is a more exciting rendition than the book, but still holds its own. Much of the scenery matches what I remember of the city. Even the giant open air laundry where Lin hides. The only thing missing is the traffic which even then was much heavier and gave the city its distinctive diesel smell.
Charlie Hunnam does a decent job of portraying an escaped Aussie convict. However I think the secondary characters add more. The denizens of the lowlife bar carry it off with real aplomb. The Mahashtri speaking locals with their casual insults about Westerners is very true to life.
I found the first ten minutes covering the arrival in Mumbai a little travelogue with shots of locals smiling and colourful market scenes. The border scene was tense but not true to life. Indians and Indian descendants are filtered to a thorough customs check whilst Westerners are usually fast track out the airport. Ditto the police stops. In that era a tourist would just pay a small “fine”. But hey, it’s fiction.
The story, once it gets going, is very watchable. A decent level of subterfuge and hidden agendas. Good all round acting.
