This movie is definitely not a traditional Bollywood movie. I was pleasnatly surprised that here were no dancing, no lyp-synching and no ridiculous storyline. I think Indian cinema is entering a new era and I am very happy they are. This is a story of four people living in Mumbai and experiencing love, loss, happiness and loneliness. The city itself is a character and i could tell that the director Kiran Rao truly loves the city of Mumbai and the way she shows the city in the film is very interesting and beautiful in the same time. The film also explores the issues of class system in India through the relationships of the characters. The movie does not have an ending and I really liked that because it is realistic. Aamir Khan, the Bollywood superstar and the director’s husband, plays the part of the painter Arun and does an excellent job with the part. Surprisingly Aamir did not overwhelm the film and his performance was subtle. Prateik Babbar gives an incredible performance as a young and handsome dhobi who wants to become a Bollywood star. I was rooting for Babbar through the whole movie. I really enjoyed watching this film, and I think everyone should see it because it is a completely different kind of an Indian film.
