The most awaited movie of this month has finally released! After a lot of struggle the mission has been accomplished, similar to Rizwan Khan’s (Shahrukh Khan) journey in the movie.

Suffering from Asperger’s syndrome, Khan understands only black or white. Without any professional medical help, Khan’s mother understood him and his abilities the way only a mother can. She taught him that there are only two types of people in the world: good and bad; religion does not define a person. Blessed with a brilliant mind Khan has a fantastic memory and a self-taught talent of fixing almost any machine.

On the death of his mother he moves to San Francisco to live with his brother Zakir (Jimmy Shergill). There he falls in love with divorced single mother Mandira. He wins her over with his child-like innocence and persistent devotion. Marriage leads to her and her son, Sameer, adopting the surname Khan.

The repercussions the disaster of the twin towers has on the family are life changing. Consequentially Khan sets out on a mission to meet the President of the United States to set things right. On his journey spanning almost two years he touches a lot of people with his purity of thought and ideology of ‘main achcha insaan hoon aur sirf achchi cheezen karta hoon’.

Khan’s has an assortment of experiences, some quite extreme, but he never gives up.

There are some very moving scenes in the movie which reflect the harsh reality of life that is beyond our control. Since Rizwan cannot express emotions due to his condition, he describes them during the course of narration and it couldn’t have been said better. We don’t love someone because of their religion or status, we love the person for who they are and because they make us feel good. It’s very basic, but man has complicated it with his mind and divided the world on the basis of various criteria.

To lose a loved one is a inexplicable pain and to think that it is purposely inflicted on the innocent in the name of religion is something a pure soul cannot fathom. Khan is like that soul.

Seen in a completely different role, SRK has possibly transcended all his previous performances. There isn’t much opportunity for the Kajol-SRK chemistry as the former has barely any screen time. The straightforward and transparent manner of Rizwan makes for a few laughs.

Overall the movie is a bit far-fetched and too long. Like all Karan Johar movies it is definitely an entertainer and will surely draw the masses.

[rating:3]

    Sharukh has to learn lot things from Aamir khan.

    Shah Rukh, the businessman always, played all his cards perfectly correct as might have been guided by Karan and his advisors. and the maturing indian democracy is yet to learn how their emotions are sensibly used to mint money. A true winner makes his art work speak by itself to gain love of people. With Aamir`s towering popularity and weak openings of Johar`s films in recent past: such methods had to be resorted to.

    I second what Vidooshak has said. It really made me feel like they wanted to make a Forrest Gump kind of movie, but did not have a theme, major events, or screenplay to work with. So they got a topical theme of terrorism.

    It has good stuff but post-interval the movies loses its plot and its mind and soul too. with over the top situations and forced upon incidents.

    very long movie we were just waiting for the end some unnecessary scenes in the movie shahrukh has done well but kajol is best. movie concept is good but direction is very poor for kjohar. *** is too much for that movie

    My SRK and Kajol loook old and tired or the makeup was bad, kJo could have done better screenplay, story and message – It was like good intension with wrong message. Only their acting and pair is pulling the crowd

    I wonder why Karan Johar is still living in India, or is he? He should migrate to America and try selling his bullshit movies to the Americans.
    As always, SRK SUCKS!

    Superb!! Perfect!! It’s what was needed after the funky 3 idiots! Though i’m not a hard core SRK fan, i think he’s better than Aamir!! Any day..

    shahrukh’s potrayal of a mentally challenged person fails to evoke sympathy…the movie is far fetched…there was a lot of unnecessary footage..the movie lacked focus…it is over hyped.

    its a brilliant movie in all aspects..srk is srk no one can be compared to his acting skills..those who say its a bakwas movie they are one of the idiots..evry one should go and watch this movie..srk rocks

    Well every one is talking about movie is good or bad , acting is good or bad bad screenplay blah blah …but guyz This movie really good and give a Right message to Rest of the world. As we all are Humans NOT SIKH, ISAAI, muslims or Hindu. I must say I respect SRK and KJo (BOTH) to taking this kinda risk as a Businessman, Yes they had a plan and statergy which are quite sucefull for this MOVIE. BUT FORGET ALL JUST REMMBER THIS AS AN ACTOR HE TRIES TO GIVE A MESSAGE WHICH REALLY REQUIRED TO THE WORLD. JAI HIND! so full star *****

    Wow. Its a terrific movie. I totally liked it. Not in the lines of 3idiots which u can watch more than twice. Great performance by SRK and Kajol looked ordinary. Not much scope compared to SRK

    SRK hype says it is a good movie. I would just rate it as an average movie, thats it. Such messages have been beautifully narrated in A WEDNESDAY.

    those whose said the movie is perfect and extra ordinary ..mooh mein bullaaa…

    sharukh looks like alien

    Could have put some more effort on screenplay….
    Lacks Realism!!Good effort though

    Okay…I personally think that the movie is brilliant. For those who think its far fetched, I’m pretty sure they must have liked Forest Gump…n even that’s okay coz most of u might not enjoy GOOD movies. Now 3 Idiots was good as well…but seriously doesn’t any of u think that it was pretty far fetched n an all Aamir Khan movie?! I mean for the love of god, who in the world would steal the damn examination paper for a FRIEND at that n put their whole career on stake!? Coz in the book, the reason was acceptable, in the movie it was bulls*** I mean seriously just because it glossed Aamir to the hilt, doesn’t mean there are no loopholes in that movie. Delivering a baby with a vacuum cleaner!? damn a damn gynac would commit suicide over such atrocious thoughts, more than that I think the mother would get a heart attack first 😀 Anyway, I’m not an ardent fan of either of the two, just wanted to say, appreciate good movies, n quit being wannabes..!!! 🙂

    Without the media hype Shah Rukh Khan and karan Johar would not have made the money. Nothing great about this film. SRK is sick.

    February 24, 2010 at 4:20 pm

    It is a brilliant movie.

    this is the most idotic pathetic and boring moving ever sen …this i\movie is based on one particulas caste which claims they are nor terriost but one thing has to be under stood to mr khan ” every muslim is not terrorist its true but its sure that every terriost is a muslim ” explain this …..make movies against terrorism not againg muslim terroist ……

    This film is no where near to 3 idiots,agreed MNIK got record collections but it got dropped in the second week,it can’t break 3 Idiots record.And only bcoz cheap publicity the movie has got only good First weekend collections.Some people are talking about msg but don’t u think 3 idiots has better msg than MNIK.

    srk looks blind more than autistic

  43. super

    February 27, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    Okay for people puerile enough to say that this film revolves ’round the TERRORIST plot haven’t got the movie at all or haven’t got the intellect to actually understand movies except for whats shown literally.
    The movie is not based on terrorism, it’s about an autistic guy trying to win his wife back. Terrorism is just a catalyst in the movie. It was BECAUSE of the 9/11 that his family broke up. They could’ve shown anything else, anyway it worked. What irks me is that most of the people go like or dislike movies on the basis of the ACTORS. I mean it’s like the story doesn’t matter to them, who plays the lead matter more than that. And since this movie is being compared to 3 Idiots so much, let me tell u that both of the movies belong to a different genre, both of them are high in commercialism and both of them have flaws in them. It’s sad that most have the maturity and a flexible judgement to have understood a movie as complex as maybe, THE MATRIX and that their intellect and maturity sucks when it comes to movies back home.

    well im happy that im the only type who doesnt hav fav in bollywood ie i dont like any of bollywood crapotrs they cant act. simple as that.

    coming back to the movie. no matter how hard you try but SRK’s fans will always live in illusion that this movie is the biggest hit in the world.hahahaha. overseas it might have done good business and the reason is: NRIs, muslims from Pak, Bangladesh,UAE and rest of the world who dont get a shit from mainstream americans r watching this movie because of its ANTI-American theme.
    2) SRK’s NEWARK airport drama

    in india SRK was able to fool ppl for first weekend but aftet that ppl came to know what he was cookin: FOOL ME ONCE SHAME ON YOU, FOOL ME TWICE SHAME ON ME.

    week#3: most of the cinema hall are empty and occupancy is around 1-2%. if a movie cant sustain for 4 weeks in cinemas how is it A GOOD MOVIE??HOW DOES THAT MAKE sRGAY LOOK???

    SRK-KJo clan should thank FOX studio and controversies otherwise this movie had ended SRK film career.hahaha. eat that SRK fans.

    and popularity of SRK?? in west nobody freakin knows him. I live in Australia and most non-Indians dont even known that bollywood exists.

    even in south INDIA, most of the ppl dont even know who SRK is.. i dont know whr INDIAn media get all the news that SRK is popular bla bla.
