Internationally the highest-grossing Bollywood film ever, My Name Is Khan portrays post-9/11 life for Muslim-Americans through the eyes of Rizwan Khan, a sweet, gentle genius with Asperger’s syndrome. Rizwan romances and marries Mandira, a Hindu, in San Francisco. But an attack on Mandira’s 6-year-old son after 9/11 leads Rizwan on a cross-country quest to meet the U.S. President and tell him “My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist.”

“There’s something fascinating about looking at this country through a Bollywood lens, even when the story is a kind of fairy tale. Skillfully directed ‘Khan’ jerks tears with ease, while teaching lessons about Islam and tolerance.” – Rachel Saltz, The New York Times

“A potent, energetic heart-tugger.” – Kevin Thompson, Los Angeles Times
