5 Novels That Ought To Be Turned Into Films….

We know it’s been a while since we have shared a blog post with you, but here we are, back with a bang after a short sabbatical caused by technical errors.

In one of our previous posts we shared with you the bestsellers which are soon to be turned into films, however, the literary world is vast and with one too many breathtaking novels out there which are waiting to see the light of the day. Fifty Shades was a huge affair, literally, but then some uber cool novels are yet to be explored by the cinemawalas.

Here are our recommendations:

Zero Dial

Recently we read this thriller and considering that underworld has become a muse for the Bollywood producers and directors, we think Zero Dial will be an apt book to be turned into a novel. It is moment-to-moment tale of the informers.

Papillon

A prisoner on the run and the calamities that he faces; stays with the Red Indians and survives the wrath of nature, interesting enough? It sure can be the best subject matter to be turned into a moving picture! Although there has been a movie being made already, we think to toss it in Bollywood spices will render it more flavor.

Shantaram

Again the story of a convict on the run who lands in India, this tale of Gregory David Roberts spells the dearth of facilities faced by Mumbai, this land of dreams; it rendezvous with the underworld, shows us a gory picture of the flesh trade and has much more barbaric facts about this city to share. There were reports about Amitabh Bachchan and Johnny Depp being approached by Warner Bros for this film, but perhaps the idea was shelved.

Princess: A True Story Of Life Behind The Veil In Saudi Arabia

This fabulous saga that outlines and delves into the plight of women in Saudi Arabia by defining the life of a Princess! We wish to watch the chronicle unfold and the veil uplifted on the reel.

A Matter Of Time

This heartwarming tale spans three generations of family and reiterates the plight of women in Indian patriarchal society. Since women centered films have become a trend in Bollywood market, this film is most likely to appease the viewers. We think, directors should give it a go.

Bonus Recommendation

Premchand has been a legend in the world of words and literature. He has been a reigning Hindi literature since the post colonial India. It is for this reason we wish to see a biopic made on this literary sage. Who could reprise the character of Premchand? Amitabh Bachchan seems to be the likely actor, what say you?
