What lacks in 'Main Aur Mrs Khanna'

We have seen many films on marital problems. Main Aurr Mrs Khanna, starring Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Sohail Khan, is no different.


Main Aurr Mrs Khanna lacks punch - Says

In fact, we wonder what made Salman say yes to Prem Soni's directorial debut when he had already done a film on a similar topic in Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar. Surely it's not to revive his brother Sohail's (he is the producer of MAMK) flagging career?

Well, whatever the reason, don't hold your breath: Main Aurr Mrs Khanna is a failed attempt.

Performance-wise, though Kareena is okay, she is not convincing as a dedicated wife waiting for her husband to return. There is no sense of urgency in her performance, except for one sequence where she gets drunk and keeps saying her husband's name over and over again.

As for Salman, his role is more like an extended special appearance. That leaves Sohail, which is not saying much.

Bappi Lahiri is wasted. Come on, at least make the man sing! Yash Tonk overacts while Mahek Chahal is just okay. Nauheed Cyrusi's role is as skimpy as her outfit. Dino too doesn't have a lot to do. And yes, Preity Zinta's item number isn't happening, which is ironic considering it's called Happening. [ Read complete review @ Rediff ]
