H alf-way though this strange book, I realised what was wrong: it was screaming to be re-woven into a screenplay for a movie with actors Madhavan and Vidya Balan in the lead roles. It’s the same feeling one got on reading The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay — which, of course, was made into a movie. Sometimes, the scenes you’re reading play out in your head and that’s striking the mother-lode for both writer and audience, so it’s all the more unsettling that The Wind and The Rain is not fluidly written. It does, though, have memorable characters and sets its milieu beautifully.
