Aamir's alone intelligence ignites the whole movie.....Don't miss it !!!!
25 October 2007 | by (Bangalore) – See all my reviews

An excellent thriller and action movie from Ahutosh Gowariker. Yes it is somehow inspired by Hollywood flick Patriot Games starring Harrison Ford. The way Aamir Khan appears in the movie is impressive to watch because it magnets the character and creates interest in moving forward of the movie. I must mention that the whole movie has some similarities with Sarfarosh (though Sarfarosh was made later). Those who have watched Sarfarosh and liked it, must not leave this Baazi unwatched. But please don't judge between these two unique movies as both are made in their own ways. Mamata Kulkarni looks very cute here but sometimes her character seems too idiotic and over silly. One dialogue of Paresh Rawal I found very remarkable here when he says-"Politician ke haat bahut lambey hote hai" because it's absolutely true. Anu Malik also presented a slow romantic and refreshing music at his best. For Aamir Khan fans, I request you to watch this movie, and check out if you really like.
