My name is Julia. And I’m not a terrorist.


“My name is Rizvan Khan. I might seem a little different to you. That is because I have Aspergers Syndrome. It is named after Dr Hans Aspersers who first noticed the traits in children. Having Aspergers does not mean I am stupid. I am very intelligent, but I don't understand people. I don't know why people say things they don't mean. For example, they say come to my house any time, and when I go to their house they say why have you come at this time? Sometimes people think I am rude. I don't mean to be rude, being rude is not good. My mother said there are only good people and bad people in the world and I am a good person...”

 My Name is Khan is a must see movie. Fullstop.


Since i missed “3 Idiots” during the show in cinema, i wanted to make sure i won’t miss My Name is Khan starring my favourite Shahrukh Khan and the lovely Kajol, directed by Karan Johar. Shahrukh and Kajol – what a better combination could it be right? Even better with the touch of Karan. I like them as movie partne r since the Baazigar, Karan Arjun, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and up until the memorable 2001 Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham. 9 years of waiting for another pairing in a good movie. The Karan-Shah Rukh-Kajol combo strikes once more!

I went to watch My Name is Khan yesterday. And I regret that i didn’t watch it sooner. Damn it was a great movie. But of course, there are still a few gap here and there. And for some of you, may be you won’t really like this movie because of the religion issue. Mind you one thing, you won’t see any dancing scene choreographed in this music. No romantic item like Suraj Hua Madham.. or enjoyable songs and dance like Koi Mil Gaya. A bit frustrating for me tho. :P
