My Name Is Khan- A review of the Shahrukh Khan trailer

“My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist”- This was the last line of the promo. This line tells us many things about the movie itself. A very powerful trailer, one of the best I have seen. It starts with SRK as a child while his mother tells him that in this world there are only two kinds of people- The good and the bad. We find that SRK isn’t a normal person in this movie.  He even explains to the people that he might be different but that doesn’t mean that he is mad. The very logic of this statement is true and the dialogue delivery has been made in a perfect way.  He plays, reads, solves puzzles and basically leads a happy life after he finds the love of his life Kajol.

But the movie isn’t a romantic one. The later part contains a much serious note something that many of us know already- the racial discrimination of Muslims in America. During his stay the incident of 9/11 occurs and everybody around him start ill treating him, his son and his wife too. His life is shattered when his wife asks him to leave the family and he does so. Another scene shows while travelling in the airport he gets strip searched in a violent manner as if he was an ex-con or something and when asked the purpose for visit to Washington DC he says he wants to tell something to the President. Then we find a series of events of his attempts to meet the President and finally I come back again to the favorite line in the entire promo “My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist”. In fact this very line summarizes the entire movie theme and tells us that the director has tried to bring to the audience the treatment that our own brothers suffered.  As expected from director Karan Johar this film is surely impressive and is going to be a success.
