Main Aur Mrs Khanna

Rating : 2/10
Release Date : 16th Oct, 2009
Time : 130 minutes
Director & Writer : Prem Soni; Music : Sajid-Wajid
Starring : Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Sohail Khan, Nauheed Cyrusi

This film shouldn’t have been given the censor certificate. All the paying audience, about 30 of us in the show I attended, should’ve been given our money back. Implausibility follows implausibility, stupidity follows asininess before an end that makes you cringe…the film is so bad that I’m lost for words

Salman meets Kareena and there is love at first sight. After a really stupid / implausible ‘separation’ of sorts, Sohail meets Kareena and again falls in love. Yet, he doesn’t tell her but chooses to help her, while she waits for miyan to return. Silly plot element follows dumb twists – including Bappi Lahiri as a duty free shop owner, a person pretending to be a Julia Roberts look alike and Preity Zinta pretending to be an item dancer a la Kajra Re…but not one character evokes sympathy, credibility or even a shred of connect with the audience…

Even the two points are purely because Kareena looks hot and because they’ve used a lovely song (from Saregama's collection, Bade Ache Lagte Hain…from the film Balika Badhu) twice in the background score…Sohail was decent, but he can be so much better. I can’t believe UTV bought and distributed this one… The film is so shallow that my toe couldn’t skinny dip in this pool…
