My name is Khan. And I'm not a terrorist.

I'm not a huge fan of Bollywood or Shahrukh Khan but this movie is definitely one of the best I've seen so far from that side of the world. It has a strong and powerful message that is seldom prevalent in Bollywood films. At some point, it stopped being a movie but an idea, of what it's like to see from different eyes post 9/11 in America. Totally, totally refreshing.

I thought the movie was very well made with an awesome soundtrack but of course, Bollywood being Bollywood, you can expect certain twists of events that kind of erode its 'realness', reminding us at the end, that this is after all, a movie. Nevertheless, it's a mind opener...
