Okay, this movie is one movie that I am super-excited for-not only is it the first Bollywood movie to get a significant release in the US (FOX Searchlight has picked it up), but it brings together probably the most beloved duo in recent memory-Shahrukh Khan and Kajol. It opens on February 12th.
The basic plot of the movie: Rizwan Khan (SRK) is a Muslim man who has Asperger's Syndrome. He grew up in Mumbai, but moves to San Fransisco where he meets Mandira (Kajol), a Hindu. They get married, and life is good-but 9/11 changes it all. Events happen that lead to the separation of Rizwan and Mandira, and Rizwan is detained and arrested at LAX, when his Asperger's is mistaken for suspicious behaviour. He then goes on a cross-country journey to not only meet President Obama, but to win back his wife.
I mean, as much of an overactor as SRK can tend to be, this movie has been extremely eagerly awaited for months, and it's very culturally relevant.
