Movie Preview: Aamir
Aamir, the name literally means leader and our protagonist (Rajeev) becomes a follower not because of faith, not out of zeal but out of 'fear'. Geographically Aamir's maze is set in the Muslim dominated, but poor, areas of Bombay. In its lanes and by lanes, cheap restaurants and lodges, amongst nameless pimps and whores, run-down buildings and over-crowded markets, filth and squalor, Aamir is supposed to understand the life he has lived, the 'choices' he has made, his dreams, his loves and his immediate fears.
Through the course of one day lost in the streets of Mumbai the question remains that do you choose your destiny, or does destiny choose you, and whether Aamir chooses to be a follower or become a leader.
