Well… well… well. I don’t remember the last movie which made such headlines. It has really pulled people to the theatres. Reading the good reviews… KC and I headed for this one. Umm… what I say about it? The story is about Rhizwan Khan whose suffers from Aspergers (hope I spelt it right) syndrome. He shifts to USA with his bro and sis-in-law… meets Kajol who is a divorced mom and falls in love with her. They get married. After 9/11 his son is killed ‘coz he is a Muslim… Kajol throws Khan out of the house… thats how his journey around USA following the President to meet him and say; “My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist”. Khan wins back Kajol… and everything is hunky dory… except… it is a Karan Johar movie and needs his touch. The end drags on into an emotional traumatic sentimental whirlpool from which it is difficult to get out of. I begged KC to leave but he wouldn’t… and I had to watch the end.
Shahrukh is great… he is not himself…like in Swades and Chak De… Kajol is her screechy self.. her voice grates on the nerves when she screams. She has been smartly dressed in black throughout the movie… it camouflages her fat and has a slimming effect.
My suggestion is to watch and walk out when the hurricane crap comes on. You will leave with happy memories.
