Foreign Flim Friday


My sixth movie for Foreign Film Friday is sad get your tissues ready! It is a Bollywood which takes place in San Fransisco and is mostly in English. It stars Shah Rukh Khan- one of my favorite actors, and Kajol who I like a lot. This is a three hour epic which will have you laughing and crying tears of hope and sadness, joy and heartache. I’m not fan of sad movies, and thankfully the ending does bring everything together. I didn’t know it was so sad when I started watching it and then once I got started I couldn’t stop. This doesn’t have the bursting into song Bollywood movies are famous for, but the acting and story more then make up for it. Shah Khan shows his skill as an actor by playing a man with Asperger’s syndrome. He’s wonderful and if any actor can cry as well as he can then let me know, cause it’s amazing. It’s an touching story I hope you grab your tissues and spend an afternoon watching ‘My Name is Khan’

  1. Oh wow. If the trailer is this powerful, I cannot imagine the power of the entire film. Thank you for sharing it with us. I think a viewing of it would make a phenomenal lesson for our homeschool group.

    • It would- it’s an amazing movie- I’d say about 13 and up depending on maturity. Maybe the adults should watch it first as it has some intense themes, then the kids. But my 11 year old daughter came in during the movie and watched it and sat there and cried with me. I hope you like it.

  2. I was just telling my husband that I wanted to try a Bollywood movie out! Thanks for the suggestion. Any suggestions that do have the upbeat, song and dance numbers in them as well?
    I got your comment on my blog. You should be seeing an email from me tomorrow-after I sleep! 🙂 Thanks again!
