Bordering on ridiculous

Seriously bad movie... I am at odds to understand these previous recommendations. It was like the director was on speed; four movies in one maybe? And painful to go through! Yes the theme is good; but the failing to deliver an entertaining, deep and soulful movie really brings disregard to what the director was trying to achieve. The first half is...

1.0

No interval

Not all cinemas have intermission eg Rialto runs it right through. I really enjoyed it - laughed & cried and the length wasn't a problem. Great performances by Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol make you feel the injustice and the triumph - yes, there's a happy ending!

Fantastic !!

The movie has a universal message of humanity. In the time of post 9/11 where every bearded brown man is a possible suspect and every muslim as terrorist, the values of Islam and humanity come across in a very nonthreatening way. Enjoy with an open mind.

Aucklanders have been watching a high profile Bollywood movie that is seriously stressful to watch in Bollywood.

My Name Is Khan is a cross between Rain Man and Forrest Gump wrapped in rotis and served with over cooked birinyi.
