Main Aur Mrs. Khanna is an October 2009 release movie directed by debutant director Prem Soni and jointly produced by Sohail Khan Productions and UTV Spotboy Pictures.
Although Soni has tried to direct a romance with a sensitive touch to it, he has failed to make his mark, as the film turns out to be another love story based on the same repeated theme that has gone boring and worn out. The film begins with a fairytale meeting of the main stars Samir Khanna (Salman Khan) and Raina (Kareena Kapoor) and is followed by a romantic wedding. The film basically revolves around Raina, so you can expect to see enough of Kareena Kapoor.
Samir has a successful job and the couple is happily settled in Melbourne. Raina is madly in love with him and keeps house for him like any Indian wife would do. However, this happiness does not last long as Samir has losses in his business and he is forced out of work. Raina is the sole breadwinner now and this does not go down well with Samir, who decides to move to Singapore and start his business afresh. Strange as it may be, Samir does not wish to take Raina along and asks her to return to her hometown Dalhousie until he comes back for her.
Raina persuades him to let her stay back in Melbourne where she will take up a job and wait for him to come back for her. Samir leaves and Raina with the help of her friends gets a job at the international airport. Here, she meets Akash (Sohail Khan), who is a fun-loving happy-go-lucky lad who believes in mild flirtations and provides comic relief to the film by his humorous remarks. Akash is smitten by Raina even though he knows that she is married and deeply in love with her husband. The story builds up as a love triangle, but of course it is one-sided as far as Akash is concerned.
When Akash is prompted by his best friend (Yash Tonk), he decides to tell Raina that he loves her, but sadly this is the very moment that Samir decides to get back to his beloved wife. In a series of events, Akash desperately tries to convince Raina that he is a better match for her than Samir, but this does not work out in his favour. Samir has always been and will remain Raina’s love forever and she does not feel anything for Akash besides seeing him as a good friend. The whole story stands out to be basically a weak script that turns out even weaker on screen.
Dino Morea, Nauheed Cyrusi and Mahek Chahel also star in the film, but they have small insignificant roles and it seems a waste of their talent. Preity Zinta plays a seductress, which again fails to make a mark. The addition of Bappi Lahiri bedecked in his gold ornaments, as Raina’s jolly boss adds to all the confusion. Salman Khan fails to deliver his best and even sounds disinterested in some of the scenes. Amidst all this, Kareena Kapoor keeps her cool and tries to maintain her glamorous look. What is great is that throughout the film, one can see Kareena Kapoor in different designer outfits irrespective of the couple’s financial status. In overall, you can manage to sit through the film.
