Comparison book and film The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Write a blog post where you compare the book and the film. Watch the trailer to the film and an interview with the author, Mohsin Hamid  and the director, Mira Nair linked to in this blog post  

In your blog post, comment on differences in plot, character descriptions and relationships, as well as focus and message in the film vs the book. To what extent do you think that these changes are justified or even improve the story? Or do you think they contribute to the film losing all the subtlety and complex ambiguity of the novel, as argued in this review ?
