Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna - The Movie IX

However, I would like to add one comment of my own. Towards the end of the film, there is a dialogue. I cannot remember the whole dialogue, but it says that for a successful marriage to work, the only thing one needs is “be-intehaan mohabbat” meaning tremendous love. From personal experience (and at the cost of sound like a cynic), I can say that these things when said on screen, sound very good but is not the entire truth. It is not just love that can sustain a successful marriage. There has to be trust between the two people, there has to be respect for one another, there has to be transparency in the relationship and there has to be faith between the two people. Of course, this is not an exhaustive list. This is what I feel. Of course, I could be wrong here. But this is what I genuinely believe. And it is this aspect of marriage that has not been explored by Karan Johar in Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna and which is why I think he’s gone wrong in dealing with the sensitive issue of an extra-marital affair. Had he done that, I think the movie would have been far too superior than what it is today. Anyways, these are just the thoughts of an amateur blogger.

What do you guys think of what I’ve said above? Does anybody have any comments?

I just came to know that a blog based on bollywood trivia exists, through Download Hindi Songs and from there through BB Networs. I must say that I was one such persons looking for Bolly trivias. But what you have given is more of a critical approaches to the film, which i no mean to say in a negative way. In fact, i enjoyed all your criicism related to the film. i think they were true and it did not have any bias. But although all you told bout KANK is true to an extent, I still feel that it was a good entertainijn flm. May be becuase iam just a teenager of 19 who has not married yet and doesnt know what are the tensions in such a life. Any ways enjoyed the film and am a strong supporter and great fan of KJo and SRK as you can see from my ID itself. But I really appreciate your effort and request you to write more..............
