Aamir Movie Review -- Go Watch It....

Movie - Aamir
Producer - Ronnie Screwvala
Director - Raj Kumar Gupta
Music Director - Amit Trivedi
Actor - Rajeev Khandelwal
Date of Release - 6th June 2008

Seldom you come across a movie like "Aamir", plain yet powerful, small but heavy, with loads of debutant but performance like experienced, with unheard of music but one that sticks on your mind for long after watching the movie. In a nutshell this is what the movie is all about.

The movie Aamir starts with the protagonist Aamir(played excellently by Rajeev Khandelwal in his big screen debut) landing in Mumbai and from that moment Rajeev's life is more like a roller coaster ride questioning Rajeev's belief that a person makes his own destiny.

Not following the typical Hindi Movie stereotypes Aamir has no actress in fact no major actor besides Rajeev Khandelwal in the movie. Though a few songs are part of the movie but they are played in the background and tend to render well on the big screen. In fact I bought the audio cd of Aamir after watching the movie which explains the fact that the songs are some real gems.

In addition instead of shooting the films in beautiful locales the movie is actually shot in the dingiest of Mumbai bylanes which you would have had ever experienced, and honestly this adds authenticity to the movie. Again the end of the movie defies all bollywood logic and makes Aamir a real gem.

Aamir may or may not be a box office hit, but certainly deserves to be seen, appreciated and applauded. Kudos to Rajeev Khandelwal, Raj Kumar Gupta and the music director Amit Trivedi. This movie is definitely not to be missed if you are a movie lover.

Rating - 4/5
