I'd write more, like you said I should. If only, there was more to me.

Reviewers say a lot of things, usually it falls into the realm of the bizarre.
Here's some critical poetry Karan Johar's Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna, now better known as KANK has inspired.

"And really, that's what makes them both relatable and endearing on screen."

"His racy dialogue makes you turn beetroot red with embarrassment, but you're also fighting hard to suppress your giggles."

"If cinema is entertainment, then Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna succeeds, and how!"

From The Times of India, eeerm, not entirely sure that's what Johar intendend:
"Amitabh and Abhishek once again create magic when they are together, even as the big daddy of Bollywood creates one of the most flamboyant playboys on the desi screen. Catch his throwaway lines and you'd realise Hugh Heffner's got competition."

India FM enlightens us in entirety:
"Frankly, a film like KABHI ALVIDA NAA KEHNA is akin to a big gamble. The subject matter has to be treated cautiously and delicately, or else it can boomerang badly. It might even hurt the sensibilities if entrusted in wrong hands."

These are The Indian Express' contributions, which now officially looks like its in need of a good Sub-Ed, brace yourself for the English:
"The story has everything you expect in a Karan Johar's movie - humongous canvas, enchanting Shah Rukh, foot-tapping music, soothing visuals, passionate moments and ofcourse hilarious stints."

"The songs are excellent, both in terms of music and visualisation and one number which would get you into the party mode is Rock 'n roll, with the father and son shaking it together!"

You were warned folks, happy weekend, see you Monday.
