Dr Aamir Ali (Rajeev Khandelwal, mindblowingly brilliant!) lands into Mumbai city after a 3 year stint abroad. And then lands into a plot of bewilderment and terror. His family has been kidnapped, his luggage stolen and a cellphone is handed over to him. The cellphone belongs to an unknown number and voice. The voice instucts him to follow commands, if he wants his family back and Dr Aamir snakes through the squalid underbelly of Mumbai city following instructions.
A brilliant and flawless debut performance by Rajeev Khandelwal as he swiftly and effortlessly goes through emotions ranging from rage to helplessness and finally resignation. Amazingly shot and written, with the dark side of Mumbai-city potrayed like never before, the movie keeps you at the edge of your seat. ‘Aamir’ is a must-watch for people who love good cinema.
My only quibble; the pace of the film and the editing could have been tauter.
Power, politics and passion form the base, once again, for the sequel to ‘Sarkar’. It is good but could have done with a faster pace, crisper editing, fewer crazy angled shots and lesser close ups *I counted all the blackheads, pimples, craters and pores on Abhishek’s face!*
Abhishek is monotonous with just one expression throughout. Aishwariya is surprisingly restrained and good.
But Amitabh is THE MAN! He is excellent!!*as always* and in the last 20 minutes of the movie, Amitabh is a virtual film institution, his performance is that awe worthy!
