KANK - 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna'

A story of relationships, love, extra-marital affairs and life. The characters in the movie could have played a more intense role to make the movie a must watch. KANK deals with infidelity after marriage.
Dev Saran (Shah Rukh Khan) is a rising soccer star in the US, married to fashion executive Rhea (Preity Zinta). Rhea works hard at her career, spending less time applauding sourpuss hubby for every goal he makes, than he would like. Dev met with an accident and lost his only dream and passion, soccer on the other had Rhea became successful.

This is not a review of the movie but how this movie is applicable to ones own life. It resembles to circumstances that we can closely relate to ones own life.

In today’s generation both men and women are serious about their respective careers and ambitious.

KANK has raised some important questions about today’s men and women.
Can men tolerate their wife’s/girl friends success? When women can why can't men is the most common question asked. I do not have an answer to that perhaps a psychologist can.

Men love a lot of attention and care, to feel that they are the provider (financially) and to believe that they are better than there counter part but it is time to change and look at things differently.

Is it not good that women are more independent (financially and emotionally)? Lets look at the some benefits (The benefits model :) )

  • No cribbing that we are not spending time together. Lets you concentrate on your career
    Double income for the family means more luxuries, holidays and also a means to provide better education to children
  • The female child will gain more importance and will be responsible for taking care of their parents
  • You can meet your dreams faster
  • Less stress and tensions (at least monetary)
Let us be happy and happy for our girl friends/wifes. Marriage/Relationship is about compatibility, love and adaptability. Not that I am married :).
