Aamir (2008) - Hindi Movie Review

Ranking: 4/5

Cast: Rajeev Khandelwal
Director: Rajkumar Gupta

I have to say...what a difference...one day you watch a very average movie like Woodstock Villa and the next day you are taken aback by the wonderful direction, story, tight screenplay, and not to forget brilliant acting in Aamir. This movie surely made a mark...a point...and a very bold statement at that...

Aamir returns to India from UK...a doctor returning to his family of mom, bro, and sister. From the very minute he lands the trip is not going his way...and the minute he steps out of the airport his bag is stolen, a cell phone is handed to him and he has to follow orders as said in the cellphone if he wants to see his family alive. He goes through a lot of trouble and visits places he has never been to blindly following orders...What is the ultimate goal? If I tell that then there wont be a point in you watching the movie now will there? So definitely go and catch it!!!

Like I said in the beginning...a brilliant must watch movie. Rajeev Khandelwal is awesome in portraying Aamir and the director is so brilliant too...and kudos for casting a newcomer and not any usual Bollywood hero...whoever the scriptwriter is...ek dham brilliant!!!!
