“Repair Almost Anything.” Rizvan Khan, the protagonist of the film holds out a placard after he runs out of money during his long, arduous, circuitous journey to meet the President of the United States of America to tell him just one thing: “My Name Is Khan and I am not a terrorist”.

Rizvan Khan, a Muslim man from India, moves to San Francisco and lives with his brother and sister-in-law. Rizvan, who has Aspergers, falls in love with Mandira. Despite protests from his family they get married and start a small business together. They are happy until September 11, 2001 when attitudes towards Muslims undergo a sea-change. When tragedy strikes, Mandira is devastated and they split. Rizvan is confused and very upset that the love of his life has left him. To win her back, he embarks on a touching and inspiring journey across America.

Every single scene of the movie has great links to convey, so you can’t afford to miss even a single act.

Movie has many appealing & simple scene, but they are very convincing & attractive. Though the romance between Rizvan & Mandira is subtle, yet it’s appealing. The life of SRK in the movie is the best part of the film.

There’s a minor holdup in the IInd half, when Rizvan proceeds to Georgia to put aside a hurricane-ravaged hamlet. Moreover, media also implement tends to make the movie lengthy.

Work of Shibani Bathija should given the credit.

Kudos to Karan Johar for making this brave attempt but how one wishes he had reined himself in during the second half. The flood sequence and the sub-plot involving Mama Jenny and funny hair Joel in Wilhelmina, Georgia, were totally dispensable.

Music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy and cinematography by Ravi Chandran is top-notch. Jimmy Shergill (as SRK’s younger brother) and Sonya Jehan (as Shergill’s wife) come up with fine performances.

But my salutations to the man who breathes life and soul into the movie – the King Khan. And I say it as much from my epiglottis as from the heart.
