Storyline

Dev Saran is a disgruntled former footballer who is jealous of his wife Rhea's successful career as a fashion magazine editor. Maya Talwar is a kindergarten teacher married to her childhood buddy Rishi. Rishi is a passionate and affectionate husband but Maya is unable to reciprocate his love because of the lack of feelings towards him. A chance encounter brings Dev and Maya together. Since their respective marriages are falling apart, they decide to help each other to salvage their marriages, blissfully unaware of what the forces of love have in store for them. What starts as a pleasant friendship develops into love and an extramarital affair which soon throws the relations between the two couples in turmoil. Written by Soumitra

Trivia

The idea of making this film struck Karan Johar while he was in London. During his trip, he saw the movie Before Sunset (2004), based on a couple who meet after parting ways. After seeing that film, he was out at a restaurant where he overheard a married couple breaking up amicably. The incident moved him and he decided to explore the idea. See more »

Goofs

When Dev converts the penalty shot, the long shot reveals a player going on his knees, pulling his shirt over his face, with his bare chest visible. In the next shot, a close-up shot repeats the exact same thing - only this time the actor is wearing a vest beneath his shirt. See more »

Good acting, alright story
6 December 2006 | by spike_boy_65See all my reviews

One of the most awaited films of the year is KANK. I'm a Karan Johar fan and I must say, he has excelled as a director. After his recent successes Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, KANK is another masterpiece.

Shah Rukh Khan takes a bold role in this film and does well as a short tempered, disgruntled man. Some of the scenes with Preity and his son were funny. Preity looked pretty as always. Rani also was OK, though the character Maya was too complicated.

Big B and Abhishek were the best in the film. Amithabh playing the old but youthful man who is still the wise 'Samarjit' behind 'Sexy Sam' was very good. Abhishek did well in the emotional scenes but stole the chow in the comic scenes.

Overall, KANK was a good film, but the affair of Dev and Maya was pointless and stupid, I didn't like it one bit. Songs were good like 'Where's the party tonight' and 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna'. The film was good.

Worth a Watch.
