Main Aurr Mrs Khanna - Movie Review

Aur loads of boredom
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi

‘Main Aur Mrs Khanna’ is so very behind its times that it appears that writer-director Prem Soni gleaned most of the scenes from the scrapped scripts of the unmade movies from the previous decade. The worst is its juvenile humour which is supported by background sounds of grunts, growls, slurps and whip lashes. Ouch! To still top it, there’s an overdose of dramatic background score that breaks in every now and then, as if trying to tell the audience how to feel in a particular scene. Hey, Mr. Soni! The audience ain’t dumb.

If anything was left, there’s a pointless guest appearance by Preity Zinta, as a Pakistani singer who tries to entice Salman in the song ‘Happening’ that’s clearly inspired by ‘Kajra Re’.

The less spoken about the performances the better. Salman Khan almost seems to sleep-walk through his part. He’s uptight, stiff-necked and has an inexplicable beatific smile on his face even in dramatic scenes. It’s a pain to see Kareena Kapoor’s talent being wasted in a role that’s neither properly written nor fleshed out. Sohail Khan capers about as a fun-loving guy for most of his part, but flounders when he has to get emotional.

Director Prem Soni gives no reason to look forward to his next work. His writing and style of direction is outdated. Yes, there are some beautifully cinematographed shots where lighting changes in split seconds and there are also some hummable songs, but that doesn’t gloss over the plot holes so wide that a dozen Salmans can walk through them.

Sample a few - Mrs. Khanna is dressed in designer outfits but has no cellphone. Within few days of her job at the airport, she’s able to afford a swanky house of her own. Months pass by and Mr. Khanna refuses to take calls from her. Then he shows up out of nowhere one day. The chemistry between the couple revives and just when they are about to jump in bed…wham…they begin to fight again!

Hell, I’m walking out…

Rating: 1/10

PS: One star for Deepika’s cameo in the end.
