Mr. and Mrs. Khanna have finally arrived and it remains to be seen whether they will receive a warm greeting with open arms or a cold handshake. Aptly titled, the movie mostly revolves around Akash and Mrs. Khanna. Even though Mr. Khanna has less screen time he is omnipresent in the movie.
Mr. Sameer Khanna (Salmaan Khan) is a man of few words and a lot of pride, who believes that money determines not only a man’s worth but also the fate of a marriage. His wife, Raina (Kareena Kapoor), is hopelessly in love with him to the point of awe and seems to think he can do no wrong. On losing his job and credibility in Melbourne, Sameer decides to relocate to Singapore to build a career. He asks Raina to wait behind till he can give her the life she deserves. She decides to stay back in Melbourne and finds a job at the airport, which happens to be Akash’s (Sohail Khan) workplace as well. He meets her and falls for her at first sight. He proceeds to pursue her (even though he is aware of her title and addresses her as Mrs. Khanna) and help her in her time of need. In the process they forge a comfortable friendship, which is strictly platonic at first for she is confident that her husband will return and lives for that day.
There are some things in the movie that don’t make sense and it feels like something is missing. The couple, who are hopelessly in love, lack chemistry and are more like acquaintances. The relationships in general seem vague and awkward.
Surprisingly, the chemistry between Sohail Khan and Kareena Kapoor works well. The movie is filled with silly humor and funny situations backed by some very clever sound effects, not forgetting some beautiful locations and eye pleasing settings. There are a bunch of guest appearances and the support cast does an unexpectedly acceptable job.
At a length of less than two hours, Main aurr Mrs. Khanna is short and sweet.
