! What the hell is that? I think the best way to release your pent up emotions is to blast your way through a short writeup on undoubtedly the worst movie of the season. Last night, my friends and I caught up with a one hour viewing of Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (KANK). I don't know whether it is a Naa or a Na, since you see Karan Johar is pretty superstitious about these silly things. To top it all, the media gets excited when Karan Johar changes the title from some silly name to another equally silly name. Obviously it has to be, since only a single letter gets edited in his new title.

Now, let me add some adjectives to this movie: silly, idiotic, stupid, outrageous, maddening, foolish, nerve wrecking, head breaking (not path breaking please as KJ claims), goofed up to the core, foolhardy, reckless, unwise, pathetic, nauseating, wretched, pitiable, dismal, sad, deplorable, useless and above all disgraceful. I wish I had more time to look for worse adjectives in any online dictionary. I can go on and on and rant about this totally mindless and time wasting drama, which makes absolutely no sense at all. I just cannot fathom what triggered a debate after the people saw this movie. All that I could think of was fleeing from the hall and getting back to bed with about a dozen painkillers. KJ is too happy to talk about his movie in his interviews. I am happy that my movie has triggered a debate. Even I would agree to that, but not about the movie, but whether a Karan Johar movie should be watched in the future or not. As such, we started seeing the movie after one hour from the start and got out in 45 mins. We were not even in a position to make fun of the movie, as we could not decipher what the hell was happening on the screen. Just because your marriage is not working out doesn't mean you end up in bed with somebody else. The best part is, the side relationship goes on with the main relationship. Now, don't get me wrong. I am getting the KJ effect. What I mean is, even though you are not happy with the relationship, stick on with your wife and go to bed with somebody else forms the theme of the 45 mins which I saw.

Amitabh Bachchan has made a complete mockery out of himself with his role in the movie. It looks so put on and hopeless. Shahrukh Khan is forgettable in the movie. His acting is so plain and totally lacking in strength. He gets perturbed by all the idiosynchracies happening around him. Abhishek Bachchan has atleast demonstrated good acting abilities, but since the script is so weak and tortuous (obviously, that's what I felt since every scene was rounding up on the same points), he had nothing much to do. He shouts at his wife(Rani Mukherji) for not satisfying his sexual whims and fancies. The best part is Shahrukh shouts at Rani for maintaining an intimate relationship with Abhishek. So, Rani is at the receiving end from two people at the same time. By this time, I was driven to madness and my friends and I dashed to the exit before more pitfalls could catch our attention. But, Rani and Preity Zinta are amazing in the movie. They are ravishing. But then, how long can one look at the beautiful ladies if the plot is maddening.

At the end of it all, we had to come to this conclusion. KKJMND. Still not sure? Kabhi Karan Johar Movie Naa Dekhna!
