Brilliant - My Name Is Khan review by FrankEmnBobs

Spoiler Alert
13/06/2011

Chose the film purely on previous reviews and was not disappointed. Some great messages within touching on good and bad, love and hate, racism and religious bigotory. The wife went through a box of tissues, best film I've watched for ages.

Modern fairytale - My Name Is Khan review by LProud

Spoiler Alert
18/06/2011

This is a flawed gem. It's too long, has a slow start and tips perilously close to sentimentality, but somehow it works. Khan is set a Herculean labour before his very beautiful lady will accept him. He has to show her somewhere in San Francisco she hasn't seen before, and he does. Later there is another labour to perform: he has to meet the president and tell him that Khan is not a terrorist.

The story is threaded through historical events from 9/11 to the election of Obama. What is most powerful is the wisdom given to Khan by his mother, that there are people who hold flowers and people who hold guns, and he must learn to distinguish.

That Khan has Aspergers Syndrome gives him an innocence to win hearts. In many ways, this storyline is following that of Wolfram von Eschenbach's story of Parzival finding the Grail.

Without those flaws of pace, this would be a five star film. Highly recommended.

Confusing Subtitles for Hard of Hearing - My Name Is Khan review by am

Spoiler Alert
15/04/2015

I need proper subtitles for anything I watch, I can't do without them. However, if I used HOH subs on this disk, they conflicted with the translated Urdu - it simply wouldn't bring up the English translations of Urdu (and other languages) if I used HOH subs! Trying to understand two people speaking clearly in English can be difficult enough for me, but next to impossible when trying to understand a fast conversation in heavily accented English (never mind Urdu!). Sorry, but I couldn't get past twenty minutes, due to this bizarre subtitling conflict. Beware HOH customers.
