I generally don't write movie reviews because as in books, people may just have a different taste in movies.

But this is one flick, like Rang De Basanti, or Taare Zameen Par, all of us must see.


A movie that tackles a very serious topical issue, in a very in-your-face manner, yet, focuses on the sensitivity of its viewers. A movie that is unemotional, dealing with the unfathomable. It gives the issue a new perspective, one that will be etched in my mind forever.

I will think of the protagonist before I quickly allow my self to label an individual a 'terrorist'...

Together with the awesome acting (Big screen debut of Rajeev Khandelwal is striking and compulsive and he is a handsome dude), is a very strong script backed by amazing direction (no leverages granted here for the first time Director), and sensible music and background score (not the AR Rahman/Sandeep Chowta type of run-of-the-mill stuff).

Considering the kind of movies that have been churned out lately (Krazzy 4, Race, Tashan etc), Aamir is a class apart and above.

But be sure, it won't be hanging around in Cinemas too long. Go see it while it is still playing.
