Brilliant young Muslim with Aspergers goes on a quest to tell the US president that he is not a terrorist in the wake of a terrible tragedy that occurs to his family in vengeful, post-911 America. I didn’t watch this movie, because I can’t handle weepies. However, my mother did and she rates it highly, as did many film-critics and audiences. Although this is a Bollywood movie, it is not a musical. Stars Shah Rukh Khan as the eponymous Rizawan Khan. Recommended by mum.

“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“He is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright
