The name is Khan, Shahrukh Khan. Khan indeed. Ohh man, I just cant stop gushing about him. Finally I watched the must awaited movie on the first day itself. Getting the tickets was another huge task. But this time I was prepared, I had booked the tickets on Monday :-). That's why despite the bump on my head and not feeling my face, I still went to watch the movie. What happened to me, we'll come back to that later.
'My name is KHAN' belongs to one single person, Khan himself. Shahrukh at the age of 44 still gets me weak in the knees at times. But today all I wanted was to stand and applaud the man, who has been my top favourite since 16 years. He forms the heart and soul of the movie. Rizvan Khan, the muslim suffering from Asperger's Syndrome. Asperger's syndrome is a type of autism which reduces the social interaction abilities. Khan in the movie, cannot interact with people easily, cannot bear loud noise, has no emotions, doesn't empathise with people and hates the colour yellow. He's so naive and his expressions make you fall in love with him in every frame. He's an actor par excellence, and I adore him for that.
Just when your used to his coldness, finally Khan starts feeling the oldest and strongest emotion known to mankind. LOVE. Mandira played by Kajol could even get a solid rock to fall in love with her. She's splendid and together they both set the screen on fire. Sadly she doesn't have much to do in the film but she forms the sole reason for Khan's journey. A woman behind troubles again, the usual norm. The whole city of Troy was destroyed for a woman afterall. Kajol with gorgeous eyes and subtle clothes is a delight to watch. She and Shahrukh are made for each other. On screen atleast.
Shahrukh steals the show. He's awesome, excellent and still remains the Badshah of Bollywood. A must watch for everyone. I even forgot the pounding in my head during those amazing 2 hours and 40 minutes. Okay, so this is what happened. I slipped at home yesterday and my head directly banged the sharp corner of a wall. The force was ample and the thud noise had my mom come running from 10 foot across. Surprisingly I felt nothing at that time. Mom just massaged me and I left to work. I was fine for an hour or two and then came the pain and the swelling. The doc suggested me to be more careful and not to stress the right side of my body. Yeah, thanks to that incident I have lost sensation on the right side of my face.
A great movie and a best friend around. Things got more better when I picked up a Roasted Chicken sub. The only problem was that I couldn't open my mouth properly to eat it. Every single bite hurt :-(. Till today I dint know that the mouth is connected to the head in such a critical way. Why God why? Why do I always have to learn things the hard way :P. Anyways I should get back my sensations in about 4-5 days, else we are in some serious trouble.
'My name is Khan' is an amazing movie and a must watch for everyone. Karan Johar surely did make up for the dud 'Kabhi Alvida na Kehna'. Sheeesh, how I hated that crappy movie. After Dev-D the only movie to have got a 5 star rating by TOI. Dev-D did live up to the expectations. This one does too. A lovely movie and its proves that people can go to any extent for love.
