  1. A potent, energetic heart-tugger and Khan and Kajol, major Bollywood stars, are highly appealing and equal to the demand of their emotion-charged roles.

    Riotously overstuffed and enormously enjoyable drama.

    Skillfully directed by Karan Johar and with an evocative score by Shankar, Ehsaan & Loy, “Khan” jerks tears with ease, while teaching lessons about Islam and tolerance.

    A very average, ordinary film that goes haywire.
  5. This is a movie not built for subtlety, but it does tackle a subject American movies have mostly avoided -- that of racial profiling and the plight of Muslim-Americans.

    For a movie that preaches cultural understanding, it sometimes seems a little too comfortable perpetuating ethnic stereotypes.
  7. 38
    The polished production sometimes touches and amuses despite its naïve “love conquers all” script.

    This movie is just too special . Any critic who has said bad about this movie don't have a heart and don't understand humanity. This movie teaches how to unite without looking at the religion, caste, colour, or anything at all. Expand

    Great 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.

    This movie is absolute fake. Full of hero khan glorification. Director lost plot in btw and started glorifying the protagonist.
