Karan Johar who began his career with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai has started to venture in to serious cinema territory with Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna has also tried to maintain this stance with his production house producing diverse fares such as Dostana and Wake up Sid.
Even before the release this movie was in the hot water with the Shiv Sena, a right wing party prevented its release because of statements made by Shahrukh about some Pakistani cricket players.
The foray of Fox Search Light pictures in Bollywood with the payment of an obscene amount of rupees for the rights, they hope to have a successful launch where Sony stumbled with Saawariya.
How does this all bode with MNIK?
MNIK is the story of Rizvaan Khan who suffers from Aspergers and has the inability to deal with social situations and interactions. He migrates to America after his brother sponsors him and starts working as a cosmetics salesman. He meets Kajol, a single mother who works in a salon and falls in love. His brother protests his decision to marry her but they do and start a small business together. Their domestic bliss is interrupted until 9/11. Life takes a tragic turn and Mandira accuses Rizvan and his faith for the tragedy. They separate and Rizvaan embarks on a journey that will bring back Mandira and clear conceptions about his name and religion.
The movie showcases the finest talents India has to offer and Shahrukh delivers his best performance to date in recent years after Chak De.Read more ›
The story follows the journey of Rizwan Khan (Shah Rukh Khan), a Muslim man with Asperger's Syndrome as he writes a letter to his wife Mandira (Kajol) while he is on a journey to give the President of the United States a message; "My Name Is Khan, and I am not a Terrorist". Through this letter he is writing, we come to learn about the emotions he truly feels and can't express when speaking due to his condition.Read more ›
My Name is Khan is clearly one of the best films I've seen this year. Period. The performances by Shahrukh Khan and Kajol are stellar and if there is any justice the film should at least receive an Oscar nod as Best Foreign Film.
But I want to touch upon the notion that several reviewers have mentioned that the scenes in Georgia were unnecessary. I disagree. Those scenes were there to emphasize that Rizwan completely adhered to the lesson that his mother taught him that there were only two kinds of people in the world; good and bad. To the point of setting his own personal journey aside, he felt to need to help "good" people that were in trouble. How could we capture that notion any better than having him come to the aid of another group of people that were be subjected to the discrimination that he was feeling?
Is some of it over the top and/or unrealistic? No more than the action film characters that survive exploding cars and jumps from rooftops with little or no harm to their bodies. It's a movie, people.
All films paint certain characters with broad strokes to move the story along. Most of those stereotypical characters are based on some exaggeration of the truth. I am an African American woman who like Mama Jenny is a "little fat". I was not offended by anything in the movie at all. She was portrayed as a caring and warm person. And anyone that thinks that areas like that don't exist in American anymore have not traveled off of the main roads. People are forgetting that the main character has Asperger's. His description of Joel and his hair is something an autistic person may say. My nephew is autistic. He is very literal with observations.Read more ›
