'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.
