My take on MAIN AUR MRS KHANNA (Hindi, 2009)


Diwali, Salman and Kareena Kapoor in a love story hasn’t proved too fruitful for Salman last time around either in 2005 with KYON KII which failed miserably at the box-office. While KYON KII had a depressing ending which worked against the film in the festive season (it was fairly well made), MAIN AUR MRS KHANNA is a romance which can only be described as old wine in a old bottle!

      Yeah this one is a total dud through and through! A definite let-down after WANTED! Lets see what LONDON DREAMS holds in store…

      • Even while you state emphatically that this is Sohail’s film and that Salman has only a guest appearance, you still compare it to Wanted. The power of publicity, I guess.

        I think you are way too kind on the film.

          Well promo’s give off the idea that Salman is the main hero and Sohail is secondary which isn’t the case…this one is worth a miss by all means unless you’re a Bebo freak!

  2. A relevant excerpt from Baradwaj Rangan’s review of MAMK:

    “…These scenes are staged not elaborately but in a concise, cryptic manner, as if Soni were laying the groundwork for a monumental meditation on the modern-day marriage. We wait for these casual snapshots of Sameer and Raina to accrue into a warts-and-all wedding album.

    And then Sohail Khan pees all over the wedding cake. Rarely has there been such a dreadful case of miscasting, and rarely has a film thundered off the rails with such a drastic change of mood and tone.”

    Just added “Preity Zinta is OK trying to ape Ashwariya Rai in the far superior KAJRA RE. Deepika Padukone’s role seems forced”
