UTV - From RACE to AAMIR
With two huge successes in the first quarter of 2008, UTV is indeed ecstatic and is now gearing up for the release of their third film - AAMIR. A UTV SPOTBOY film which has numero uno TV star Rajeev Khandelwal heading the film's cast, AAMIR is a thriller directed by first time film maker Rajkumar Gupta. In the film, Rajeev plays the central protagonist 'Aamir', a self made lower middle class young man who rises to be a doctor in the city of London.
On his visit to Mumbai, he gets lost in a maze of Muslim dominated poor areas of the city, its lanes and by lanes, cheap restaurants and lodges, nameless pimps and whores, run-down buildings and over-crowded markets, filth and squalor!
This is when he faces the question around whether a man chooses his destiny or the destiny chooses a man. And the decision he is required to taken sooner or later is - whether he should continue to be a follower or stand up as a leader.
A Ronnie Screwvala production, the film is all set for a 23rd May release.
