MY NAME IS KHAN (2010)
It’s about time to make a movie that could balance the general point of view. Thiz movie tries to answer that someone is not measured by his religion, but more about his good deeds. The story applies some “Forrest Gump” (1994) elements into it. The film is starred by India superstar Shahrukh Khan along with Kajol and directed by their friend Karan Johar. Although Johar is a very well-known Director in India, but his works are very rare. There are only four movies, including his first phenomenal movie “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” in 1998. All Johar’s movies appeared Khan and Kajol. The following are “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gam” (2001) and “Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna” (2006) where Kajol is only appeared in a small role (uncredited). On thiz movie, Khan’s performance tries to reach Dustin Hoffman’s character in “Rain Man” (1988). But like all the Bollywood movies, I think some moments are overacting. Khan suffers Asperger syndrome that makes him difficult to interact with other people. However, he is gifted with special abilities, in some ways he is smart. The entire film is about journey of his life, meets his love one and what happens after 9/11 incident. The cinematography is awesome.The plot has many layers of side stories. Most of the times, the conflicts are quite good. But the ending is too simple and easily solved. If we want to be honest, thiz movie delivers some clear explicit messages. It takes us to see from another point of view where some things become more sensitive after 9/11 incident. Thiz movie doesn’t try to judge who is right or who is wrong, but it simply wants to remind us that we are actually in the same boat. The title and character itself which points to Khan is very acceptable. The movie is anticipated to be neutral by putting the main Actor real name onto it.
Stars : 7/10
