Aamir - Can someone else change your Destiny??
Im here with my Review and Iâ€™m gonna imagine that this is the most awaited reviewâ€¦.hehehe! Ye galatfaimi mujhe bahut pasand haiâ€¦â€¦..lolzz !! Move away Taran Adarsh and Rajeev Masandâ€¦â€¦.This is where I take over now !! Muhahahaha!!
So, An unassuming opening shotâ€¦..makes u smile seeing the scene you know so well ,coz u have found yourself in the scene quite oftenâ€¦.Either as the actor himself or the person sitting next to the actorâ€¦â€¦â€¦The opening shot will make u chuckle with understandingâ€¦â€¦..!
After the relaxed first scene, the film suddenly gathers momentum when a person who has just arrived in the country find himself in the midst of utter chaos ,confusion and extreme terrorâ€¦â€¦â€¦A cell phone is thrown into his hands and his whole familyâ€™s destiny starts being written by a man whoâ€™s intentions are unknown and untoldâ€¦! What happens?? Does Aamir succeed?? Kya Ek Admi Apni Kismat Khud Likh Sakta Hai?? The tagline catches u on the rebound and turns into a huge â€œ?â€ and makes u shudder with the thought that the person could have been â€œUâ€ for all the goon cares !
What follows is a totally pacy movieâ€¦â€¦.No hold ups or unnescessary distractions, read that as no dance sequences and no herioneâ€¦â€¦.The film moves swiftly from one scene to otherâ€¦â€¦Making u catch your breath in wonder and amazementâ€¦â€¦..The dialogues are very common and totally relatableâ€¦â€¦.Infact you mind find one or two dialogues which you have said to someone or someone has said them to youâ€¦â€¦â€¦.This makes you chuckle with familiarity on one side and hits u on the head with the realization of the extreme sense of relatability you hold with the characterâ€¦â€¦â€¦Aamirâ€™s helpless journey to save his family and his meeting with different people whom he doesnâ€™t know and will never know but they have the most important involvement in his and his familyâ€™s quest for life at the moment ! The tale makes your heart bleed for the lead protagonist and makes u pray for yourself ki â€œ Hume Mehfooz har kadam karna aye Khudaâ€
Mumbai is shown in its true colourâ€¦â€¦.U might have seen the metropolitan life of Mumbai in films beforeâ€¦â€¦..U get into nausea seeing the scenes but slowly the resentment goes and the reality of the things gets into you and the nausea turns into a full blown hangoverâ€¦â€¦..U are scared to blink ,that u might miss sumthingâ€¦â€¦..U unknowingly join the protagonist in trying to get out of this messâ€¦â€¦.Not coz you have a soft corner for him or even in those dirty environments he looks â€œOh sooo Chweetâ€â€¦â€¦..But bcoz â€¦â€¦â€¦It is war between common man and undecided forces who are making life difficult on the name of â€œQaumâ€â€¦â€¦â€¦U have no choice but choose a sideâ€¦â€¦.because the views are soo strong that it wrenches your conscienceâ€¦.!
The treatment of the film is Superbâ€¦â€¦.U can point out the places and guess where the hidden cameraâ€™s have been usedâ€¦â€¦.A salute to Rajkumar Gupta for the brilliant Directionâ€¦â€¦..U are gonna be one busy man Mr.Guptaâ€¦â€¦â€¦Just wait till production houses fall over their feet to sign you to direct for themâ€¦â€¦..An established master of the thriller genreâ€¦The camera work is first rateâ€¦â€¦.An applause for Alphonse Royâ€¦..The background score is a character of the film in itselfâ€¦â€¦..It totally gets us into the thriller modeâ€¦â€¦Take a bow Amit Trivedi and i must add excellent n apt music score!
And nowâ€¦The actingâ€¦.."A new cast"â€¦â€¦.The lead actor has the onus of supporting the full film on his shoulderâ€¦â€¦He does it and how !! This is a Superlative Performance that will be hard to match for the quite some time nowâ€¦â€¦.â€¦â€¦..A standing oviation for Rajeev Khandewalâ€¦â€¦I can see the awards coming your way !â€¦..U are the toast of the seasonâ€¦.! The sincere performance is heart touching and evokes empathy and not sympathy for the characterâ€¦â€¦..Totally in character and in control â€¦â€¦.A Pleasure to watchâ€¦His eyes convey soo muchâ€¦â€¦.U feel you could watch him alone for 2 more hoursâ€¦â€¦.Hell !â€¦â€¦Who needs a heroine when u have the hero all to yourself throughout the movieâ€¦..! Giriraj Rao evokes terror and menace with his performanceâ€¦..No Gabbar like high-pitched laughterâ€¦..No self goadingâ€¦.No flashing of powerâ€¦â€¦Though I wish he would eat with some mannersâ€¦â€¦.His style of eating killed my appetiteâ€¦â€¦..hahaha! The characters playing the family of the protagonist is good but forgettableâ€¦â€¦.U wont remember them,but one feels this is a ploy to reinforce the fact that itâ€™s a common face and its like the people you come across on the road and forgetâ€¦.And that it could actually be anyoneâ€¦
Vanduâ€™s Rating : 4/5 (****)
To see or Not to see : U donâ€™t wanna miss this movieâ€¦â€¦This is gonna bring a sea of change in the way of directing thrillersâ€¦.. Be the ones to welcome the catalyst for the change with open arms ! Not to be missedâ€¦â€¦I dunno about uâ€¦â€¦Im gonna watch it again and itâ€™s a movie worth recommendingâ€¦â€¦!!
