Synopsis

This Bollywood drama takes on an unusually controversial topic: American prejudice against Muslims after the September 11th attacks in 2001. Shahrukh Khan (one of India's biggest stars) plays Rizwan Khan, a Muslim immigrant to the US with Asperger's syndrome, which makes it hard for him to understand other people's complex emotions. After his family falls apart, he begins an epic quest across the country, telling everyone he meets, ''My name is Khan and I'm not a terrorist''. It is all big, emotional stuff, and it's impossible to disagree with the argument for tolerance and the need for people to look beyond the surface.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
