An ordinary man’s extraordinary journey

There are only two kinds of people in the world. Good people who do good things and bad people who do bad things. In a world where the definitions of good and bad are changing everyday by those who are in power and those who want to achieve power, most of us tend to go with the flow and believe in values which are most convenient for us.

But there are some people who are gifted (or cursed, depends on your point of view) with the ability to see things as they are, without their interests hindering their perspective. One such soul with such unbiased views is the protagonist in ‘My Name Is Khan’.

The movie depicts the adventures of an ordinary man embarking on an extraordinary journey to seek justice. Rizwan Khan (Shah Rukh Khan), a Muslim from the Borivali section of Mumbai, suffers from Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism that complicates social interaction. As an adult, Rizwan marries a Hindu single mother, Mandira, in San Francisco. After 9/11, Rizwan is detained by authorities at LAX who mistake his disability for suspicious behavior. Following his arrest, he meets Radha, a therapist who helps him deal with his situation and his affliction. Rizwan then begins a journey to meet US President George W. Bush to clear his name.

On his journey, he comes across some extraordinary people and has an adventure of a lifetime. His journey across multiple states in USA to prove his innocence was one of epic proportions. The fact that a man with autism goes against all odds to stand up for justice should be an inspiration to us all. Watch the movie again to relive the extraordinary journey this ordinary man embarks on in this ground breaking film!
