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 »
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 »
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.
