Caution: By chance, if any of you belong to the Karan Johar Fan Club, i seriously advice you to skip this article.
Believe it or not, i saw the song 'Mitwa' of the movie Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, for the first time last week. Friends had recommended the song to me saying that the song is good, to listen to, of course. I sat plonked on the sofa, changing channels with the wonderful gadget called the remote control. Staring into the tv, i always end up doing this. Nothing is captivating, except for the occasional movie, or, the ever fascinating world of animals.
Well, the song was aired on tv, and i sat, determined to view the whole of it.. Watching Khan and Mukherjee romancing, or trying to, in New York, without uttering an expletive, is considered a challenge by me.
After having watched the song, i switched the tv off, and went back to i don't what. I happened to view 'Silly Lalli' on one of the following days. (for the unintiated it's one of the popular comedy soaps, that is aired daily, with Doctor providing enough relief to a stressed soul). In that particular episode, something happened to Dr. Vittal Rao, which had him limping through out the soap.
I went back to 'Mitwa'. Apparently, the movie portrays Khan, as a person with a permanent limp. But, the song has Khan running around, dancing, in the same fashion as would a normal person do. Forget about Johar, does not King Khan posess a presence of mind, in maintaining the limp. Our very own Doctor can teach him a lesson or two in consistency, and in doling out watchable material. Never did the doctor miss out on his limp, not even for a flash of a second. A blatant error which runs into full houses. A bigger error is the movie itself.
If one is interested, one can read my attempt at script-writing, the Johar way. The link's here. (Though it's crap all the way!)
