Review by : Harish V
Starring: Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Sohail Khan, Govinda.
Direction: Prem R Soni
Music: Sajid, Wajid
Production: Sohail Khan Productions, UTV Motion Pictures.
The most ‘Wanted’ Khan is back in theatres with his new offering 'Main aur Mrs.Khanna', a romantic drama with his brother Sohail Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Directed by Prem R.Soni a debutant director, the movie takes the age old 'Pati Patni aur Woh' story and sets it up in an airport. But to tell the same old story you need to have an emotional connect with any one of the lead characters and the movie fails to impress because our heart doesn't go for the Patni, neither does it go for the pati nor woh.

The movie is about Mr and Mrs Khanna, their life, their love and their separation. Salman falls in love with Kareena and marries her and takes her to Melbourne. Due to some bad decisions he loses his job and is unable to find a new one. His work affects his personal life too. Salman asks Kareena to go back to India while he goes to Singapore but Kareena stays back without Salman's approval. In the airport, Kareena meets Sohail and they become good friends. Sohail secretly loves Kareena too. But Kareena is still mad about Salman Khan. Will Salman return? Will Sohail's love succeed? Catch it in a theatre near you.
  Main Aurr Mrs Khanna

The biggest drawback of Main aur Mrs. Khanna is that the emotional conflict between the three is lacking. Prem R. Soni just misses it and tries to build around a story which is foundation-less. The scenes where Salman tries to woo Kareena are well crafted but once we come back to the present the proceedings get rather unrealistic. And the climax which could have changed the fate of the movie ends without the surprise element and the 'Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa' kind of end doesn't help either.

Technically the movie is not up to the mark with average camera work. Editing needs to be sharper. And the worst is the background score which leaves you to wonder if it has been done by a 12 year old. Music by Sajid-Wajid is tuneful. 'Don't Say Alvida' and 'Rabba' are the pick of the lot.

Kareena is the back bone of the movie and she has given a glorious performance. Salman Khan and Sohail also impress, but just the performances of the lead cast cannot drive home a movie, can it? Others in the cast give their best shot too.

Overall decent acting and good music fail to save this movie which has a thin story, poor screenplay and an over the top background score. A big failure for Sohail once again.

Verdict: Please say Alvida Mr and Mrs Khanna
