Happened to watch 'my name is khan'. A mixture of fanaa, kurbaan and newyork loosely tied with a cliche theme, MNIK has been a roaring success all over the world. However, I would give this movie 5/10.
1- powerful dialogues
1- karan johar (yea i know i'm biased)
powerful dialogues- Simple yet strong emotions were reflected in many scenes through the dialogues spoken. There is a particular scene where SRK's mum draws 2 stick figures and indicates one is a hindu and the other a muslim. The mum questions her son to state the differences of the identical figures and explains "there are only 2 kinds of people in the world. Good and bad" A very essential message conveyed across with a simple line.
beautiful songs- shankar, eshan, loy- the trio has never failed to amuse me with their composition. Each song is a pleasure to the ears. a great musical feast indeed. i like 'sajida' song.
visuals- Karan johar's 2nd home is USA for sure. He seems to be filming most of his movies in US and he knows the best way to picturise the places there.
SRK's attempt- An actor, with a huge stardom value, has attempted such a role. This is the biggest marketing factor for the film. SRK should have loads of guts to do this role and he has tried his level best. (however, at times I could not feel as though i'm watching a character who suffers from asperger's syndrome. all that I could see was that SRK imitating like one such person.)
karan johar- love this chap since his first film. so one mark for him. I really miss kal ho naa ho karan johar. i really miss K3G karan johar! I really miss his family sentiments, drama, disco songs!
karan, can you promise me that your next film will be a pakka family entertainer?
