Direction: Karan Johar comes of age. I commonly freeze up and if I do manage to speak I tend to be speaking at the person rather than with them. Rizwan and his family are forced to bear the brunt of racial prejudice in an intensely personal way that brings down their citadel. Secondly, in the few initial scenes, it's shown that Shahrukh has a serious problem with Yellow color. My Name Is Khan should lead Bollywood to international fame. We live in turbulent times.
This film is gonna blow away mainstream Hollywood if properly marketed. Jimmy Shergil as Shahrukh's brother delivers a matured and restrained performance while Zarina Waheb as Rizwan's mother blends in simplicity with sensibility in a performance that comes straight from the heart. This film is Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan and Indian cinema at its best. Songs by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have a Sufi influence and sound similar. Jimmy Shergill, Soniya Jehan, Yuvaan Makaar and the rest of the cast all give good performances. Rizwan, the boy-with-a-difference, grows up with his mother and younger brother in the back alleys of Mumbai.
I also feel a bit confused. An unlikely romance later, Mandira gets married to Rizvan. The visuals are glossy, but the irony of it all is how exclusively American Karan Johar's films are getting by the year. Directed by Karan Johar; written by Mr. All of this rings true and all of it I, and probably many other with the condition, can personally relate to. He is miles ahead of Rancho you see. Its a movie for humanity.
This should be required viewing for all of the so-called 'tolerant', no matter what faith they follow. The un-necessary focus on media coverage and political references takes away the emotional essence of the story, making the viewer a little uninterested. And it wanders off to becoming a humanitarian film about Saving the Hurricane struck people on the Southern Coast. Maybe tomorrow or one of the days next week. The ambition of the screenplay itself Shibani Bhatija is compelling enough to elicit that compliment. Jennifer Echols is lovable as Mamma Jenny. Shah Rukh plays Khan in this film by that name.
The climax is the crux of the movie, and the 2nd half is so compelling that people will just stand up and give a standing ovation to the maker, Karan Johar. Good women and bad women, good men and bad men. After this movie, he has proved why he is called The King of Bollywood. It might have worked as a story about a man who wants to show America that not all Muslims are terrorists. No one is even close to him. I myself am going to go watch it a few more times and I can't wait! I find it hard to hold a conversation outside of a topic that interests me personally. They give heart-felt performances that compliment the lead actors.
An autistic guy , who goes on a journey to meet the president of the U. Karan johar excellent screen play magic works well in this movie. There is no caste, creed or religion but just people who shape the world. Yes Rizwan is his new name now!! I think it was all of it. Also, the media exercise tends to add to the length of the film.
Any trademarks are the properties of their respective owners. Wilhelmina scene was just too good from every reality perspective. And it is the depiction of Rizwan that truly makes the film work. This was really tough viewing. And you truly do not understand jokes easily? In the end, My Name Is Khan becomes the experience it is because of Rizwan and Mandira, essayed flawlessly by Shahrukh and Kajol. The characters stay with you for a long time even after you leave the theater.
We all have to live together and secular humanism may yet save us all. You will not be able to take away your eyes for a single minute in this 160mins movie. He suffers from a form of autism; asperger's syndrome but that doesn't stop him from differentiating between good and bad and mind you he is a genius and has a pretty good memory. More films like this please! Jokes that people tell are of the variety that people like me just don't often understand. However, Karan very intelligently, uses only few full length songs in the movie and rest of them are just there as a part of the background music. He must tell the President in the hope that this simple message will filter down through society.
It not only entertains, but also mesmerises, enthrals and captivates the viewer in those 2. The flood scenes were a bit cheesy n unnecessary. Two Magic Kingdom regulars from their teen shows have parts in this, Shane Harper of Good Luck Charlie plays one of the bashers and and Kenton Duty of Shake It Up playing the best friend who turns on Yurgon Makaar show far more acting chops in this than on the Disney Channel. I have some major problems with the movie which makes me question what the likes of Mahapurush — and Divya Naari — could see in it to rate it 4. Choosing a protagonist who suffers from Asperger's Syndrome seems to be a deliberate move on the part of the film maker and it works like a master stroke. This movie has such an important theme and had a huge impact on me.
He spends much of the first half of the film clumsily but successfully wooing Mandira, an American-born Hindu woman with a young son. While watching the film I was in awe.

My Name Is Khan tries to get it right from the scratch. We are just expected, like everyone else, to automatically pick up on how they are feeling, something which we are completely unable to do due to a lack of understanding of body language and even common aspects of speech. A couple of them are lame like Mandira telling that the whole city hates Rizvan or her asking if she has the job as her husband is Muslim. All he wants is peace in the world and for every human being!! No, I'm not only referring to her powerful breakdown scenes which are great , but also the many scenes showing her interaction with Khan.
