Sena se panga lena was not my intention, still I saw My Name Is Khan on the very first week of its release. Karan Johar, the director of this flick had stated in an interview that this could be the last movie of Shahrukh Khan and Kajol together, a good marketing strategy to keep the cash registers ringing!
It’s a believable story of an autistic guy Rizwan Khan played by Shahrukh, making a long journey to meet the president of USA just to win back Mandira played by Kajol, his wife, or the only true love of his life!
Here we don’t get to see Shahrukh doing his uber cool roles, in short, he really acts, not overreacts! Kajol gives him ample company. After starring in more than half a dozen movies together, the chemistry shared between Shahrukh and Kajol is still pleasurable and laudable.
Film tends to drag in the middle, which could have been edited, shortening the length by at least 15 to 20 minutes.
Verdict - Karan! "I am X(does it matter anyway?). I am not your fan, but I enjoyed this movie”. Its time for you to sing “I did overcome”, for you got over your fixation for the letter “K” and your style of making opulent, larger than life movies!
Till I get to hear your opinion, I shall soak myself in Noor E Khuda!
