Let's review your review. Have you ever thought that the movie was NOT trying to portray Aamir as a Hero? I think that Kajol was the true "hero" in the movie. And yes he did kill many innocent people. BUT that IS what happens. And even though we did feel some sympathy at the end it didn't change the fact that Kajol HAD to kill him. You're right he was brainwashed and when he "fell in love" he didn't know what he wanted and he kept his profession his priority. That is also how it is in real life. The director was merely portraying this. I disagree when you say that the is no chemistry and no soul. There was no humor in it because it was not meant to be funny but serious. A movie doesn't necessarily need to have a well-defined hero in it's script. It's about how it's presented...in this case rather well. Perhaps it is a bit too hard for you too understand the credibility this movie deserves.
"A way to salvage Fanaa would have been Aamir turning against his own tribe and anihilating them in the end. Alas, he just dies a diehard jihadi."
This comment did make me laugh. That ending would be ridiciulous. Thank God you are not a director. That would be a typically, unrealistic ending. The ending was EXCELLENT. Aamir and Kajol had amazing chemistry and both did VERY GOOD acting. I think the audience felt more sympathy for Kajol than they did for Aamir at the end. But hey, everyone is entitled to their opinions. I personally, think this was a great movie.
See, it’s like this. You have to think before writing a movie script.
Fanaa makes 2 strategic errors. First, its “hero” is a man who is trying to liberate Kashmir, and has no hesitation about killing hundreds, lakhs if necessary, of innocent Indians in the process. It’s not that he is a misguided man who eventually realizes the folly of his ways – he completely believes in his mission and is completely anti-India, till the very end. This is the man Fanaa tries to draw your sympathies toward.
