The Kyon Ki Movie Review

By Aparajita Ghosh
Rating: 0.5/5

The theme of director Priyadarshan's movie Kyon Ki doesn't gel with the festive mood of the week in which it has released. The movie is a romantic tragedy with a climax that depresses you.

Kyon Ki is the Hindi adaptation of Priyadarshan's Malayalam movie Thalavattam that starred Mohanlal.

Salman Khan plays a mentally unstable man undergoing treatment in an asylum. Kareena Kapoor and Jackie Shroff play doctors. Rimi Sen plays Salman's former love interest.

Anand (Salman Khan) lost his mental balance after the tragic death of his girlfriend. He is admitted into a mental hospital where patients are treated with aggression and force. This style of treatment has the approval of the hospital's owner Dr. Khurana (Om Puri), who believes that mentally unstable patients should be treated likewise. Khurana's daughter, Dr. Tanvi (Kareena Kapoor) ,too, has little sympathy for Anand.

Dr. Sunil (Jackie Shroff) is in charge of Anand's treatment. With time, he begins to develop affinity towards Anand and learns from his diary of the horrible tragedy that led to his insanity.

Anand's past is revealed in flashbacks.

Anand was in love with a beautiful girl named Maya (Rimi Sen), who he was about to marry. Maya always loved to play pranks on him. One such prank went absurdly wrong when Anand throws her in a pool of water, not knowing that she could not swim. Maya dies. Anand feels himself guilty of killing her and loses his mental balance.

When Dr. Tanvi learns of Anand's past, she is shaken deep inside and decides to nurse him back to normalcy. She takes utmost care of him and even supports him when he speaks against the aggression meted out to patients in the hospital.

Eventually, Anand is cured, but Dr. Tanvi loses her heart to him by then. Anand reciprocates her feelings.

But there is a problem. Tanvi is engaged to a man (Sunil Shetty) whom her father approves of. Moreover, her father is strictly against Tanvi's match with Anand.

Kyon Ki has Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor pairing for the first time. Although the performances by the two stars in the movie are not bad, the chemistry between them doesn't come through because of a bland script and poor screenplay.

The romance between Anand and Tanvi in the film doesn't tug any string at the viewer's heart. In fact, it looks absurd that Anand (who went insane because of his lost love) starts singing and dancing in love after regaining his memory.

The movie's initial reels, in which the atmosphere of the hospital is laid out, are repulsive. Then there is unnecessary inclusion of songs that could have been done away with. The title song, repeated too often, is just about ok. “Dil Keh Raha Hai” is the only hummable track in the movie.

Salman Khan shows glimpses of good acting. But such glimpses are not without the instances of hamming. Kareena Kapoor slips into her character well enough, but sadly there is hardly anything to speak of her chemistry with Salman.

Jackie Shroff plays his part with conviction, while Om Puri's role is all about looking angry and speaking aloud. Rimi Sen looks gorgeous but gets little scope to show her histrionics.

In short, there is hardly anything in Kyon Ki that catches your fancy. The movie is a slow and brooding romantic tragedy that leaves you depressed in the end.

The movie's director Priyadarshan is known for his comedies and light-hearted entertainers. He should have stuck to his forte.

Music Review : Mediocre Melodies (1/5)
Priyadarshan, the master of comedy films, strays into a different territory with Kyon Ki, a romantic story revolving around a mentally unsound man. Salman Khan plays the male lead, while Kareena Kapoor plays his love interest in the film. The two are paired together for the first time. Rimi S...
