Kurbaan(2009): Movie Review (2.5/5)

First things first, Kurbaan keeps up the promise of being a thriller. Without wasting much time, this love story with a backdrop of terrorism keeps the audience hooked to its proceedings.
Avantika (Kareena) and Ehsaan (Saif) are professors at Delhi University. The bond over coffee and conversation (a la KJo style); and soon land up in New York as a married couple. They move into their home-sweet-home with conservative Muslims as their neighbour. When a next door woman pleads Avantika to help her save her life, hell breaks loose. What follows next, is a series of incidents that sucks Avantika into a vortex of danger and intrigue

Barring a few loopholes, Karan Johar’s story is an impressive take on terrorism that is close to reality, thought-provoking and instills the soul. The screenplay is engaging and not marred by predictability, that’s what makes it an edgy and gripping tale. A discussion on whether Muslims are in wrong doing or the US powers is effectively blended in the sequence of events. However, it does have its share of clichés in form of “hamare bachche ke liye…” and “masoom aur begunah ki jaan”.
