My Name Is Khan

It might be easy to simplify complex things but it is very difficult to explain simple things, the same case is with My Name Is Khan. It is the most simple, pure & beautiful movie of this era. It is the story of Rizwan Khan (Shah Rukh Khan) who is affected by Asperger syndrome. He is afraid of bright colors, loud noise & strangers and unable to express his feelings. But he understands one thing which his mother taught him, that there are only two kinds of people in the world, Good & Bad, and there is no other difference. This is the story of Rizwan’s journey to bring back his love, which also teaches us that love & peace is the only path to the salvation.
Direction, as they say, is the backbone of every movie. Not even for a second I thought that this film is directed by Karan Johar, you cannot resemble this work of his with any other previous blockbusters given by the same director. Karan Johar had proved himself the Jack of all trades. The direction of the movie embraces you, shows the concern & beautifully teaches you the basic moralities of life.
Coming to the performances, hats off to the God of acting, Shah Rukh Khan. Whatever I say for him will be of no value. Once again he had proved that he is the best. The command he had over his character was unimaginable. He is truly the genius of our times. You can feel your heart beat changing the rates through his journey & as he says to Vinay Pathak,”My name is Khan and I am not a Terrorist.” Although being disappeared from the industry for a while, Kajol hasn’t lost her touch. She is simply superb. The innocence with which she portrayed the character of Mandira is amazing. Soniya Jehan, Zarina Wahab, Jimmy Shergil & other casting are quite decent & sincere at their places.
Shibani Bathija has done a tremendous job. Screenplay of the movies is one of its biggest assets. The way the story unfolds is obviously magnificent. Dialogues of the movie are remarkable; my personal favorite is the one,”wo khushnaseeb hai, wo ro sakta hai”. The art work of Sharmishta Roy is also outstanding. Music & background score of the movie is another brilliant work done by Shankar, Ehsaan & Loy.
All over the movie teaches us the toughest thing in a simplest manner that we are greater than our limits, stronger than our fear and we are more than just a name. My name is Deepak Nare and I am not a terrorist.
