My Name Is Khan - Movie Review

What has happened to you mr. Wallace? Off late you are reading books, watching movies and are not bothered at all about MBA apps.

Well, i didn't apply this year and 2010 deadlines are far away. I am doing the basic ground work but just want to ensure that before i start the battle i am fresh. So, i am doing what i feel like doing. ;)

My Name is Khan -- MNIK

The Plot: The movie has a very weak plot, as is the case with most of Karan Johar films. The plot revolves around the repurcussions of 9/11 attack on US and how this attack affected the lives of common people. Director has focussed on a man named "Rizwan Khan" who suffers from Asperagus syndrome. Rizwan is played by Shahrukh and if for a moment i get unbiased i will say Shahrukh has done a decent job {3/5} though i find his acting monotonous. {If i get biased i would say like all other Shahrukh movies MNIK sucks {1/5} and i wanted to leave the hall after interval but after all i had paid for the ticket and i have all the time in the world.}

Rizwan is shown as a super talented person who knows everything about the universe. You name it and Rizwan has the answer but he doesn't know a shit about Al Qaeda. Anyways, why Shahrukh worked as a salesman when he could give any scientist or an engineer a run for his money was something that i could not understand.

And why in the hell hero always finds his dream girl always available is another thing that i could not understand. But this is peculiar to Karan Johar genre of movies.

I liked 2 songs "Tere Naina" and "tera sajda" apart fom these two songs music was below average.

Coming back to the plot, the hatred towards Muslims in after math of 9/11 attacks turned Rizwan's life upside down, his love {Played by Kajol -- who hardly had a meaty role} asks him to say something to President of USA. and our Hero sets out on a mission to follow mr. President {i didn't know that travel itenary of US president is out there on google.}.

After some struggle our hero becomes super-hero as he saves town of Georgia from a hurricane {wish we had more Rizwans and govt. wouldn't have to care about natural calamities}. Finally the US president wants to meet mr. Khan and amidst all the melodrama Rizwan khan meets the low cost duplicate of Mr. Obama.

Like all other Karan Johar movies the movie had a happy ending.

A lot of incidences were picked up from Forest Gump but overall the movie didn't have a gripping plot.

Acting: its an out and out Shahrukh Khan movie. Kajol , Vinay Pathak and others are wasted. SRK is ok and is not much different from his other films.

All in all if you are Shahrukh Khan fan then go for the movie else you might repent spending money on the ticket.

its 1.5/5 if u re not SRK/Kajol fan but if you are then its 3.5/5.

Thank God! Atlast you've learned to use the correct tenses. I remember how you use to write/say "didn't said", didn't told". I corrected you once and you kinda got upset and continued making the same mistake.. :-)
