Unique Faces of  Aamir Khan as Mr. Perfectionist

Testified for his superlative powers, Aamir Khan is well known in the industry as Mr. Perfectionist. Aamir was first introduced to Bollywood as a child artist in the hit Yaadon Ki Baaraat of 1973, he was the youngest child in the trio.  Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) was his debut film from which he gained instant stardom, the film was a runaway success and the film is now considered a classic of Hindi Cinema. He has received numerous awards and nominations which adds four National Film Awards and seven Filmfare Awards. He was honored Padma Shri in 2003 and the Padma Bhushan in 2010 by the Government of India.

Carefully selecting the ‘typecasting’ bullet for nearly three decades, he hasn’t been afraid of re-inventing himself with every role. Unlike any other industry star, he chooses to do only one or two films a year and shuns popular Indian film awards for having no credibility. With his introduction to the talk show Satyamev Jayate has made him one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2013.

Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak is ranked among the top 25 must watch Bollywood movies. Aamir Khan plays the role of Raj in the movie showcasing the chocolate boy charm. The movie was a very Bollywoodesque and innocent take on William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

But it was in 1990s his actual career began as a mega star displaying his unique qualities, making him antonymous among all other actors. In his 25 years of career in the field, he owned most of the characters as they are matchless and challenging. Thus started his true expedition in the industry with the movie Dil released on 1990.

Aamir Khan’s superlative performances include films like Dil (1990), Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin (1991), Daulat Ki Jung (1992), Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander( 1992), Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke( 1993), Parampara (1993), Andaz Apna Apna (1994), Baazi( 1995), Rangeela (1995), Akele Hum Akele Tum (1995), Raja Hindustani (1996), Ishq (1997), Earth(1998), Ghulam (1998), Sarfarosh (1999), Dil Chahta Hai( 2001), Lagaan (2001), Mangal Panday (2005), Fanaa( 2006) and Rang De Basanti (2006).

In 2007 Aamir Khan turned out to be a director with the movie Taare Zameen (2007) Par which not only brought him immense critical acclaim but was a huge box office success. Ghajini (2008) was his first all out commercial action film. His next release 3 Idiots (2009) not only made the highest income in first day, first weekend and first week records but subsequently continued to shatters many records on the following weekends and weeks, making many circuits records on the way. Dhoom 3 (2013), all of which held records for being the highest grossing Bollywood film of all-time.

Aamir Khan’s now claims that his new release ‘PK’ is one of the best and most challenged roles he has played in his nearly 25-year-long career. Before the movie hit the screens here’s a flashback of some of the actor’s most memorable and challenging roles.

Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, from the erratic, irresponsible teenage boy to a focused sportsman determined to defeat his brother’s wrong-doers, one of the most re-watchable and popular ones to date.

Rangeela, he plays the socially bumbling lover and putting on an avatar that would put birds from the Amazon to shame, Munna is perhaps one of the most captivated and rooted characters of all time.

Ghulam, he shows up in a street gangster persona was a win, but it was Aati Kya Khandala of Aamir’s playback singing and performance for that the film is most remembered for.

Lagaan, the role of the courageous and aspiring villager ‘Bhuvan’ took him to the Academy Awards for a ‘Best Foreign Film’ nomination. It was the third Indian film to be nominated as the category was introduced in 1957 (Mehboob Khan’s ‘Mother India’ and Mira Nair’s ‘Salaam Bombay’).

Dil Chahta Hai, the character Aakash was a metrosexual man full of wisecracks and pranks, a friend for keeps and a cynical romantic man. The movie’s popularity not only did much good for Goa’s tourism but also for men’s hair salons. Khan then took a four-year break citing personal problems as he went through a divorce with Reena the same year.

Mangal Pandey: The Rising, his return movie after four years, this film was about India’s first uprising against the British failed at the box office. But it began to establish Aamir’s image as the unconventional star that was now approaching his career with a higher commitment to meaningful cinema. His makeover in the movie was highly appreciated.

Rang De Basanti, the movie awakened the country’s youth to social and political activism. It has since become more common in India for people to take to the streets protesting on issues of public interest.

Taare Zameen Par, Aamir’s directorial debut was no less than his acting career. Truly capturing a child’s imagination, Aamir did one of the most challenging great jobs.

Ghajini, inspired by (but not credited to) Christopher Nolan’s ‘Memento’ this psychological thriller saw Aamir transform into his impossibly macho physique. The tattooed image became a national sensation including the close cropped hair with the bald streaks.

3 Idiots, it wasn’t that hard to watch a 44 year old to do an engineering student role since it was Aamir Khan. Retracting his muscles with a clean shave boyish avatar was easily and casually handled by Aamir.

Dhoom 3, the biggest hit of 2013. Aamir Khan is shown in double role in the movie. He learnt ballet, aerobatics and the French technique of parkour for the characters as circus entertainer trained in magic and acrobatics.

Expecting PK’s release on 19 December, the movie has alredy made and is still making a lot of buzz all around. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, produced by Hirani, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Siddharth Roy Kapur , the movie is creating a buzz everywhere in media and is being a lookout.
