10Great movie, very thoughtful and so very true in regards to how muslims are regarded by most in America. I gave it 10 because of the message and the delivery, very nicely produced and realistic.
If not for that the rating would have been lower because of the whole georgia hurricane rescue.
to paraphrase an earlier post, it reminded me too much of Forrest Gump after awhile.
Despite its shortcomings it was a wonderful story with believable actors/actresses and compelling subject.
This should be required viewing for all of the so-called 'tolerant', no matter what faith they follow.… Collapse
A beautiful and touching movie and Kajol has produced a heartwarming movie. Rizvan and Mandira are great at acting and the trip was nice. The Americans against Muslims were a bit racist and potentially made it a little lower. The Aspergers Syndrome for Rizvan was a debt but still a energetic and beautiful movie. I give it 88%.… Expand
It is time to make a movie to balance the general point of view. Thiz movie tried to answer that someone did not measure by his religion, but more about his good deeds. The story applied some Forrest Gump elements into it. It seems worked well. The film starred by India superstars, Shahrukh Khan along with Kajol and directed by their friend, Karan Johar. Despite of Johar is a known-well Director in India, but his works were very rare. There are only four movies include his first pop-phenomenal KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI (1998). All of Johar movies were appearing Khan and Kajol. The following were KABHI KUSHI KABHIE GAM in 2001 and KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA in 2006 (although Kajol only appeared on small role-uncredited). On thiz movie, Khan performance tried to reach Dustin Hoffman character in RAIN MAN (1988). But like all Bollywood movies, I think some moments were over-acted. Khan who suffered Asperger syndrome, made him difficult to interact with others. However, he gifted by special abilities (In some ways, he was smart). Entire film is about his life journey, meet his love of the lifetime and what happens after 9-11 incident. The story had many layers on what happened next, the conflicts were good. But the ending was too simple and easily solved. The cinematography was awesome. If we want to be honest, thiz movie delivers some clear explicit messages. It made thiz movie a little bit side-weighed. The title and character itself which pointed to Khan is very acceptable. The movie anticipated to be neutral by put the main Cast real name into it.

SamranH.4besides being emotional with how things run in the real world I think the movie did not work well for me, besides the great acting by the bollywood duo ! The movie is overrated for its cast n director, I thought it had a very slow paced story with a few irrational happenings, for instance the president of america returning back in the last scene just to meet a person to here him out.. now that is not real and kajol sitting at home n crying most of the second half while seeing what her husband is set to do, that i thought was ridiculous. To sum it up I though the ovie was overrated and very irrational at some point.… Expand
