Aamir (2008)

The word ‘Aamir’ means leader. So will Aamir be true to his name and become a leader? Or will he let others write his destiny just for the sake of the well-being of his family?

Aamir is just 100 minute movie but it packs in a lot in such a short duration. The visuals of the dingy areas of the city, the overcrowded narrow lanes and the filthy toilets in old dilapidated buildings truly shock and disturb the viewers.

Cast: Rajeev Khandelwal

Aamir is dark, shot mostly by hidden cameras. Comparisons can be made with Black Friday since it was also similarly made. What sets Aamir apart is the brilliant execution. The film captures your attention from the first scene itself. Right from the first frame, you’ll get the hint that Aamir is not only brilliant, but also unique!

Aamir is a man-on-the-run thriller revolving around the eponymous London-based doctor’s visit to his family in India.

Geographically, Aamir’s maze is set in the Muslim dominated streets and residential pockets of Old Bombay. In its lanes and crowded alleys, cheap restaurants and lodges, amongst nameless pimps and whores, run-down buildings and packed markets, Aamir is made to confront the life he has lived, the ‘choices’ he has made, his dreams, his loves and his immediate fears.

Through the course of a day, lost in the streets of Mumbai, the question remains – do you choose your destiny, or does destiny choose you?

Does Aamir choose to be a follower or does he rise to become a leader?
