MOVIE REVIEW: Main Aur Mrs Khanna

Surprise, surprise!

Surprise, surprise!

From director Prem Soni comes an unpretentious little film called Main Aur Mrs Khanna. Cliché-free and with everyone in it ‘acting’ instead of merely saying their lines, Main Aur Mrs Khanna is a sweet and engaging watch.

Samir Khanna (Salman Khan, acting!) and Raina Khanna (Kareena Kapoor, acting!!) are braving a financial crisis in Melbourne when Mr Khanna decides to leave for Singapore to turn his career around and makes arrangements for Mrs Khanna to leave for Delhi.

Mrs Khanna decides to stay back in Australia, and meets Akash (Sohail Khan, ACTING!!!) at the airport and also manages to land a job there. Akash falls for Mrs Khanna but instead of letting her know, just helps her out at every possible turn.

Mr Khanna returns from Singapore more successful than ever to take Mrs Khanna back, and what happens then is for you to watch in a theatre.

Salman Khan drops his superstar act and transforms back into Salman Khan the actor. This is the second time in my life I liked Kareena Kapoor (after Jab We Met) and the first time I liked Sohail Khan (he’s acting, believe it or not). Yash Tonk is awesome as Sohail’s buddy, Mahek Chahal looks hot, Nauheed Cyrusi tries to look hot, Bappi Lahiri is cool as the jewellery store owner (how perfect), Preity Zinta is in a well-timed cameo, as is Deepika Padukone.

Sentimental fools like me will feel a lump in their throat, and if you’ve had a relationship setback you might even find yourself fighting back tears. Several light moments have been sprinkled carefully all over the movie, so it never gets too intense, and a lot of those light moments are very funny.

For a change, I don’t feel like complaining about Sajid-Wajid’s music.

The best thing about Main Aur Mrs Khanna is it moves along at a pleasant pace and is perfectly balanced with humorous and emotional scenes.


Unpretentious, short and sensible, Prem Soni’s Main Aur Mrs Khanna comes as an unexpected surprise. Way to go!

RATING: 3.5/5

    I found your site from wikipedia and read a few of your other blog posts.They are cool. Pls continue this great work. Later on other fantastic American rock acts such as Lynrd Skynrd, The Eagles, America, the Allman Brothers, and the Doobie Brothers would come on the scene and shake up the world with their string of hit songs.
