So to commemorate my leaving Chennai, I saw a film directed by my least favourite talk show host and director- Karan Johar. I had absolutely no expectations on how the film would be and I was pleasantly surprised. There were no annoying family bonding scenes but unluckily there had to be a kid with a violin. The songs were awesome and the choreography was good too. The story was realistic enough for Bollywood's standards. Amitabh Bachchan rocked! Abhishek, SRK and Rani were good enough. Preity Zinta could have been better. Arjun Rampal had absolutely no screen presence. I kept laughing whenever he came on screen. Plus, there were special appearances by Kajol (in Rock n Roll Soniye) and John Abraham (in Where's the party tonight). One big drawback about KANK is that the movie is 3 hours 15 minutes long! Just when you think that the movie is over, there is another twist to the storyline. Editing should have been sharper and there was no need to play out the whole title track when nothing really important was happening on screen. But overall, I feel that KANK is a decent film that does not depend on flamboyance (ala K3G) to keep the audience interested nor does it have a shoddy screenplay (ala Kuch Kuch Hota Hai) that makes the movie seem unbelievable. KANK-Worth a watch.
My Verdict: 6/10
