Hey, my name is Ana and first-time poster in any community so here I'm sharing a review to [community profile] bollywood. Hope to this post is can be posted here.

Short Summary: Rizwan Khan, a Muslim from the Borivali section of Mumbai, suffers from Asperger's syndrome, a form of high-functioning autism that complicates socialization. The adult Rizwan marries a Hindu single mother, Mandira, in San Francisco. After 9/11, Rizwan is detained by authorities at LAX who mistake his disability for suspicious behavior. Following his arrest, he meets Radha, a therapist who helps him deal with his situation and his affliction. Rizwan then begins a journey to meet US President Obama to clear his name.

Review: It been almost four months since I watch a Bollywood film and I wanted to watch My Name is Khan for about a year now. So my mom rent the movie for me, watch the film and it took me two days to finish it. (I started to feel sick so it took me awhile to finish this film.) It was a very interesting movie and I can see why it was a third-highest weekend hit for a Bollywood film.

The movie is good but the negative in this film is the entire Mama Jenny subplot. I'm hoping that the Indian filmmakers just did not realize how incredibly racist the whole segment is. I didn’t like how they portray the South (I have live in south for almost my whole life). I wish SOMEONE should have alerted the filmmakers during production how WRONG that whole sub-plot was, and how distasteful it would be to American audiences. Unfortunately, it may turn away many who need to hear the message of the film most. Also another problem for me is that I wish they speak some more English when start to talk to People that does not speak Hindi in the movie.

Example: Where SRK character talk to some people in the church about his son murder and how everyone in the church seem to understand him. Or When the News talk about Rizwan good deed and how people are mistreating Muslim American. Most interesting about the movie is the link made between black Americans and Indians, especially Muslims.

The positive of this movie, It give you the sense of understanding of Asperger's syndrome and how difficult it may be to cope with, especially in a social circumstances, when you want to say something, but simply cannot express it the way you want it. The message of everyone being simply being defined as being part of one of two groups, good or bad people, is one that I truly admire that film showing and taking on the topic of religion during such a raw and emotional time in the world, and offering it from the perspective of an Asian family is a very brave and it's a meaningful move.

Be it song, film, actor/actress, director, etc. What's the name of that DVD you keep hidden in the back of the cabinet, behind all the exercise tapes? What's that CD you've covertly labeled '100 Best Country Songs'? Who's the actor whose poster is rolled up under your bed, taken out only before you go to bed so you can gaze dreamily at it and feel a sharp twinge of shame?

It's time to confess your sins, bollyfans! >:D
