'Aamir'- Must watch movie!!!

'Aamir' is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. Its so realistic that you dont even feel as if these are actors playing roles. Rajeev Khandelwal, the central character gives an exemplery performance as Aamir(leader).Its a harrowing story of a simple man stuck in the worst nightmare of his life.

The scenes shot in the dark underbelly of Mumbai shows the dark side of the city. The slums, the dirtied narrow lanes, the unaffected people all contribute to the heightened tension of the scenes.

The movie shows the bizarre happenings in the life of a young Muslim doctor who has come back to Mumbai after nearly three years in London. On landing at the airport he gets involved in a terrible cat and mouse game where he has to do anything and everything possible to save his family's lives.

The movie has crisp editing and wonderful dialogues. Through the simple situations the director has touched upon the causes of national integration and the need to be secular. I wish Aamir would have been sent as our entry for the Oscars.

This is a must watch movie not just for Indians but for people all over the world.
Kudos to the director(Rajkumar Gupta) for making such a hard hitting and gripping movie. It is all the more relevant in these troubled times. 'Aamir' will surely leave you thinking long after its over.

Did Steve Harvey copy the book title Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man

and theme from an earlier book?

Book with same title & theme copyrighted and published by Sharon P. Carson in 2003

CHICAGO, IL – Sharon P. Carson the author of the original title: Act Like A Lady –Think Like A Man, watched the February 27th episode of the Ophra show on which Steve Harvey was promoting his book of the same title. She was hoping that Steve would reveal to Oprah where he got the title and the theme for the book. It just seemed odd to her that his book had the same title and theme as her book that was copy written in 2003.

Upon subsequently purchasing the book, she found some interesting parallels and realized that it is not unusual for a high profiled person to take a great title and theme, rewrite a book and use their celebrity status to sell it. This she says happens too often to the unsung poets, authors and entrepreneurs of the world.

Steve wrote in his book that his hope was to “empower you with a wide-open look into the minds of men”. Sharon P. Carson wrote in her book in 2003 that her hope was for women to gain some insight into how men think in terms of relationships. Sharon also noted that in chapter 8 of Steve Harvey’s book titled “Why Men Cheat” he came to the same conclusion that she did in chapter 37 of her book, titled “Why would a man cheat”, and the answer was, “because they can”.

Sharon actively promoted her book before the release in January 2009 of Steve Harvey’s book, and would not like to see her promotion efforts hindered. She feels that her book has much to offer from a woman’s perspective and seeks to empower women to practice self love and tough love in relationships.

Before the publication of Steve Harvey’s book of the same title, Sharon bought the domain name: from which she has been selling her book. She has also held seminars with women at a Chicago University in promotion of her book, and can be viewed on the following youtube clip as she was being interviewed on a cable television program about her book in 2007

Mindful of all the self - published poets and authors who have a hard time finding publishers for their works, Sharon is currently consulting with attorneys regarding her options, and hopes that her book with the first and original title of Act Like A Lady Think Like A Man will finally receive the recognition it deserves for the wisdom, encouragement, and empowerment that it provides to women.

This is a very interesting comment. But it is a bit strange to talk about men and women when the post is on terrorism/patriotism/movies??
Though for people who don't want to shed $7.99 (like me), it would have been really nice if someone wrote out the synopsis of the chapters and the basic of cost, I mean ;-D

B - I completely agree with you, it is a very well made movie.
