just watched my name is khan. 1st half review : oih, totally unhealthy for kids' aqidah. sebab ada sedikit percampuran agama yg memeningkan jika ditonton kanak2. how come a muslim guy marries a hindu woman, the way the christians got married. and, of course the statement that the only difference between human is "is dunya me sirf dho qesem ke insaan, acchi insaan, jo accha kam karte hei, or buri jo bura ata hai, " that is good people, ya bad people (yeh india keh style hai).
ok, so i watched with subtitle yg kurang sempurna, so, i based on my little hindi language knowledge je lah. still ada scenes yg tak terintepretasikan. (kantoi sangat dulu2 minat hidustan kan).
makcik2 zaman2 i ni biaselah, hindustan tu nak kena ada shah rukh khan ke salman khan ke baru nak tengok.. kalau hero2 muda ni tak bape seronok dah tengok (sebenarnya sebab tak tengok, tak tahu la best ke tak kan), anil kapoor pun ok jugak. haha.
so my name is khan, (khan, khan, not kahn. from the epiglottis) revolves around Rizvan Khan, asperger's syndrome sufferer yang berhijrah ke Amerika after his mother died. okay, obviously he's a muslim. so, his mission is to tell the POTUS that his name is Khan, and he's not a terrorist, because his wife asked him to do so. lepas 9/11, muslims were shown to be oppressed badly, intimidated dan sebagainya, so Khan pun pergi lah...
at first i was disappointed jugak, was like, "ini movie pluralism ke ape ni...?" so today i finished the movie. (agak2 lah..hindustan 2 jam lebih, mana nak habis tgk skali harung). but things started to change and I can actually grab out few things yg telah digarap dengan cantik dalam filem ini. i learnt, and was re-assured that, to bring Islam to a level that people actually can accept us, is by doing good things and setting good example. these small things, actually memberikan satu impak yg besar sebenarnya. when Khan went to Wilhemina, Georgia to help mangsa ribut taufan, everyone was like, "the man who was accused as terrorist, sekarang pergi tolong orang yang tak tertolongkan".
dan, Khan showed to few Muslims that they were understanding things wrongly. okay, part dekat Masjid tu, i dont understand very well apa yg dy explain. he pointed that "God's way, is the way of love". nicely said. i rasa, kita perlu pandang filem ini, in a way as a reflection of the real muslims condition sekarang, at least half othem were true. and in fact, misunderstanding Islam is a bigger problem than not understanding Islam at all. because false belief, will lead to false actions, that were done in the name of Islam. dan paling penting, "orang pemarah memang nampak bodoh berbanding orang yang deal with things dengan kasih sayang dan berhemah". ini u kena cari sendiri, dekat mana. huhu. =)
tapi, note again, dari segi akidah, since i'm not "ahli" in the issue, tak berani nak komen2. tapi yg i tak setuju sekali bila tunjuk Khan solat, while his wife mengasap rumah tu. takut2 budak2 ingat it's ok?? so, mungkin jugak ibu bapa boleh gunakan movie ni untuk memulakan perbincangan akidah dengan anak2 bagi clear habis? hadoi. mungkin jugak patut adakan sesi bedah movie dan bincang sama-sama isu akidah yg dibawakan dalam filem ni. seems interesting to me. =)
pastinya ada babak2 sedih, kalau org dah biasa menangis tengok cerita hindustan menangis2 tu, get ready lah, tak sangka2 je bila jadi menangis. haha.
overall, i give this movie 3.5 star lah.
p.s: bila nak merasa org melayu buat filem yg boleh bg org berfikir. asik2 budak jamiah bercinta + hantu jembalang je... haiz~
