SUpERB MOVIE!!! short review and opinion:
MY NAME IS AINIL HAWA KHAN, AND I'M NOT A TERRORIST :p
A good- hearted muslim man (Shah Rukh Khan), in a such endearing performance that showcases his natural hyper-energy and it is this innocence of Rizwan KHAN that wins me over!.
Rizwan Khan is lovable and careful to be not irritable. And thankfully, he makes the audience empathise with him as an Asperger Syndrome patient, and does not look for pity....
He showed a nice quality of a Muslim by showing GOOD akhlak even though being oppressed and mistreated by others. This reminds me to a Hadith where Rasullullah answered the question: 'WHAT IS ISLAM??' from his fellow. And he clarified: 'GOOD AKHLAK or GOOD CONDUCT' (sorry for being not specific). So no matter what, u have to show good akhlak and always instill it within yourself. (the good value that i've learnt from this movie).
Obviously, it’s a film with a single-minded purpose, and with sequence after Muslims-are-people-too sequence. And the moments I took away were a mere handful, where Zakir comforting his wife while asking her to discard the hijab that : 'God will understand but the Americans won’t'.
SYABAS KARAN JOHAR!! And I hope he return to chronicling the lives and loves of people :)
p/s:Islam is Divine..plss Muslims...i'm begging you..don't tarnished Islam's image. Being ferocious is our nature BUT have u heard this saying?? which is : 'The toughest man is the one who can overcome his anger'. :)
be patient & redha (THAT'S THE BEST JIHAD) in everything and remember!!~ Allah & Rasul are always with us.
