Movie Review : KHNH (4 / 5)

Its a good movie

If you like emotional romantic dramas then you have to watch it now !

If you really hate them dont bother to watch. (or you can have a glimpse )

If you are in between above, its a watchable movie.

Plus points :

1. Beauty and acting skills of Preity Zinta
2. Natural acting by Saif
3. Lots of emotions and down to earth script.
4. Nice comedy. Watch out Kanta Ben angle of the story
5. Little girl (jiya) makes you cry
(It can be in negative point also )

Negative points :

1. Usual khichatani - it should have been atleast half an hour shorter
2. Song in climax !!


My rating 4 outta 5

What is the name?

What is KHNH?

And you say there are two heroes and one heroine.. Have they done something different this time with teh story or is it the same old Sangam or Saajan fomula? Or have they shown that the heroes go for each other and dump the girl?

Its little different from Sajan. Mainly it has fresh look , fast pace (till 2nd hous, after that it goes on and on) , good presentation and good comedy. (and as usual yash chopra-karan johar finishing of the movie)

Chootiaa picture hai , galti say bhee mut dekhnaa ,meri matii maari gayee thee jo mai TOI kee 4/5 rating dekh kay isko Hole ( hall) may co(k ( coke) peetay huay dekh aayaa .

Trust me u wont like it at all and wud sleep before the interval .

Hero ailing from an uncurable heart disease , loves heroine who also loves him but never confesses to heroine even after heroine confesses to hero about her feelings as he knows that he has just a few days to live and so in turn helps heroine's bestfriend to patao heroine .Second hero is successful in pataaoing heroine through heros help and then heroine discovers truth and then the usual melodrama , hero dies .Movie is in a flash back

Saw this movie yesterday at Inox,Pune...
Not to say,this movie was super hyped,publicized and anticipated,having so many big stars in it and Karan Johar looking for hat-trick after his first two block busters.
Well,I would not like to reveal the story for benefit of those who have not yet seen this movie.Essence of this movie is based on emotions and witty/small dialogues.These are the sort of ingredients typical Indian family would like to see in a movie and it has cashed on this thing....This movie it seems has been doing very well all over across India and seems to have provided Mr. Johar his hat-trick of blockbusters...
Personally,I am not for emotional movie and so it was a so so movie for me.I like Govinda movies a lot and any Govinda movie would have served me better than this. But still it was not too boring and is worth seeing for the performance of all three lead actors namely ShahRukh,Preity zeinta and Saif Ali khan...
Shah Rukh has given a sterling performance(I started liking his performances post Devdas)...
Saif and Preity are also not far behind....so yes, good for a weekend time pass..

Saw this last night. I am not a big fan of such melodramas so maybe i was biased right from the beginning.

I couldnt help laugh at some scenes of the movie but on a whole the end was pretty disappointing as they have stretched it to the test of a tensile rubberband.

I found Shah Rukh's acting in excess sometimes (as always) with spurty performances by Saif and Preity.

Let me put it this way...reading my MAD magazine and watching this movie at the same time put a smile on my face. Better than most of the bollywood crap that comes out these days.

I'll rate it at 3/5.


PS: If you like such cry cry movies then please sit with a box of kleenex tissues with you, you're gonna need it.

This review

by someone close in my family.. Read on..

Quote:
It is the most disjointed story I have seen.

Preeti Zinta, an MBA student ( she always carries a book in hand which has a cover printed with bold letters MBA.) Presently a soap called "Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi" is shown on the TV channel. There is very close resemblance between this MBA student and Jassi. Serious face with black rimmed spects etc.
The serial, as many say, is very popular and that is why the Johar has possibly given Preeti Zinta the similar looks.

Most importantly, the entire film is shot in New York. Since I have visited New York only a year ago I could recognize many spots. Johar seems to be a very very rich man.

This Zinta's family ( old Punjabi settlers)consists of mother Jennifer( A very popular name in India, Vicky's English teacher is also called Jennifer, surname Gadgil, and charges Rs.10,000.- per year to teach English) This role is played by Jaya Bhaduri. The other members of the family are- the over bearing Naani and two old looking silly aunts ( you need such funny characters in Hindi movie to tickle your ribs), a crippled brother and an adopted sister.The father has committed suicide.Reasons not known. Jennifer runs a restaurant on Wall Street/Down Town(?) but fetches no customer and hence in deep financial trouble.

The Naani and two aunts form a choir and sing old Hindi songs in such melodious(?) voice that everybody runs for the ear plugs. The Naani keeps fighting with Bahu(Aruna Irani) over the adopted girl.These quarrels are a everyday scene and Preety Zinta is the person to shout "Shut Up" over everybody else's voice to quell the quarrel. Later the Naani and Bahu Bhaduri patch up the differences as SRK reveals that this adopted girl is none other than Bhaduri's husband's illicit child.

To add spice to the story, another Punjabi -Dara Singh- lives dead in front of Preeti Zinta's apartment.
He receives his "Potaa" played by Shah Rukh and Beeti (Reema Lagu). SRK is a jolly good fella and loves to play the role of a cupid and Good Samaritan rolled into one all the while. Reason? He is suffering from a very curious disease (I don't know the name) and we are told very indirectly that he might pop off any time.
He is, therefore, very much inclined to spread smile and happiness in the world.

He selects Preeti Zinta as his target and succeeds in making her laugh, smile and wear good clothes too.
This Zinta girl has a college class mate, played by Saif Ali Khan. He is from a very very rich Gujarathi settlers Patel family and for him money is no problem. Therefore, he chooses to womanise more than completing his MBA. Zinta is his very close friend but this friendship has no amorous frills.

When SRK enters the scene from no where, he tries his best to couple Saif and Zinta together and engineers a scheme to marry them off.

Actually, SRK himself falls in love with Zinta girl but he very quickly recomposes himself to the role of good samaritan and keeps his love for Zinta on back burner.

In the end, SRK wins and Saif- Zinta shaadi taai ho jaati hai. A national integration at its best.
In the Maangni celebration Gujju Garba and Punjabi style dances are shown to add spice to this otherwise extremely boring movie. SRK, unmindful of his deadly disease, dances fiercely to his heart's content. As a result he collapses to the floor. There after he is shown on the wheeled stretcher which runs through endless corridors of some hospital. Surprisingly, Reema Lagoo keeps pace with SRK with her burgeoning mass.

The specialist American doctor tells SRK that he has very little time left and SRK takes it philosophically. But he comes to know that Saif and Zinta's marriage is on the rocks even before they actually get wedded. SRK is very upset. He throws off all the electrodes and instruments connected to his body and tells his attending mother that he is going off since he has important job of bringing Zinta and Saif together.

He runs amok on New York's busy streets. To avoid any collision, he runs on middle "no over taking" double stripe. His speed is comparable with the last lap of champion Marathon racer. In the huge city of New York he gets hold of Zinta girl on the river side and does the unfinished job quite meticulously. He also runs to Saif's residence and readies him for the marriage. Despite all hurdles the marriage finally takes place and SRK makes "Kanyadaan" along with Jaya Bhaduri. SRK dances till you are over satiated.

Afterwards, he gets himself admitted to the hospital again for final closure of his eyes. Everybody from two families join in queue to reach and touch SRK who is lying in bed and counting last minutes. This scene is stretched so long that some one in the sparse audience shouted "Aare, band kar na dole' . SRK obliges after a long time and vanishes from the world. The normal rituals of cremation are thankfully avoided. Quite possibly, the Johars ran out of time and raw stock of film.

If you think that the movie has ended here you try to get up from your seat ...but you are mistaken. You are taken in time machine loop and shown what happened 20 years later to Saif and Zinta. The efforts taken by SRK are not wasted and both are shown happily married. Well, they even have a baby and Saif Ali is greyed. Saif takes Zinta in his fold and they walk away.

I have lost faith in all newspaper critics. This horrible movie is given *** 1/2 . Can you beat it?

This is the story of a BLOCK BUSTER from Bollywood.
