Genre: Drama/Romance

Starring: Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Jimmy Shergill, Soniya Jehan, Yuvaan Makar

The world is composed of two types of people. Good and Bad. Discriminating on any other lines of race or colour is not accepted. Rizwan Khan (Khan) is an Indian born follower of Islam who suffers from Asperger's Syndrome. The colour yellow and loud noises make him uncomfortable and he goes into a fit. Although the layman would call him a retard, Rizwan's mind is sharper than anyone else. He goes to San Fransisco to stay with his brother Zakir (Shergill) and sells beauty products. He falls in love and marries a Hindu hair stylist, Mandira (Kajol). Mandira has a son from her previous marriage, Sam (Makar) and all three of them settle down as a happy family. Post 9/11, Islamic people in the United States are looked upon with contempt. In the religious battle, an innocent young Sam is killed. Rizwan realises that his last name has brought misery to Mandira and her family and decides to make a long journey to meet the president of the United States and convey to him a message; my name is Khan and I am not a terrorist. The movie brings out a very strong message about peace and love. It says that every Islamic person is not a threat to society and are after all humans. A message also goes out to all our Islamic brothers that if society is unjust to you, don't make things worse by reciprocating the same. Karan Johar has still stuck to his old formula of Shah Rukh, Kajol and an American location and yet churned out a fantabulous entertainer which thankfully is not a run-of-the-mill family saga. Shah Rukh Khan was the shining star throughout with an amazing performance although slightly overdone at times. The movies start is very typically Bollywood with over dramatic scenes but the movie soon picks up pace and starts playing the right notes. Be good at heart and proud of what you are.

Thumbs up: Good social message, Shah Rukh Khan
Thumbs down: A bit over-dramatic bits

Rating: 8.0/10
