My Thoughts:

I watched this one on Netflix. It is not one that impressed me. I found my mind wandering through-out the entire film. For the most part I was just bored watching it. Not one I will be adding to my collection... not one I can recommend.

Kal Ho Naa Ho, a review by dfmorgan


Kal Ho Naa Ho


Year: 2003
Director: Nikhil Advani
Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Preity Zinta

Overview: For Naina Catherine Kapur (Preity Zinta), life is cold, grey and dull - as it has been ever since a family tragedy shook her world.

Between the constant bickering in her half punjabi half Catholic household, her grandmother's temper, looking after her little sister and brother and helping her mother (Jaya Bachchan) deal with the family's financial troubles - Naina has no time for things like parties, fun or herself... she's twenty-three, going on fifty. she is serious. She is boring.

Enter Aman Mathur (Shah Rukh Khan). like a whiff of fresh air, he moves into their tiny indian neighborhood to take it over. Helping others to resolve their problems, face life's little challenges - Aman has all the answers. Much to Naina's irritation, he insists on interferring in her life too...

Aman pushes Naina into doing things she would never dream of doing. He nags her till she learns to smile. He conspires with friend Rohit (Saif Ali Khan), an eligible Manhattan bachelor to help find her happiness.

Kal Ho Naa Ho is the story of Aman, Rohit and Naina's journey together - how  they discover themselves, find the courage to love and come together to celebrate life.

Watched: 26th Feb. 2011
My Thoughts: Yet again another wonderful recommendation. This must be the one weepy to rule all other weepies. The first half of the film builds the characters and their dynamics leading to a little weepy session before the intermission. Then the second half is powerful with many weepy hits all through it leading to its conclusion and small postscript set 20 years later. Overall this is not just a weepy though, this film has a very strong multi-threaded story being told with some unexpected reveals.

My Rating: A marvellous 4

p.s. I loved the Bollywoodized interpretation of Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman".
