LOOKOUT POINT Aamir Khan in Dhobi Ghat (Mumbai Diaries)

Details Limited Release: Jan 21, 2011; Rated: Unrated; Length: 100 Minutes

This shot-on-film-and-video trifle reveals a Bombay (that's what all the characters call it) that Slumdog Millionaire didn't: a delicate metropolis sunk in torpor. But the love triangle at the center of Dhobi Ghat (Mumbai Diaries) is shallow. Will Shai (Monica Dogra), an investment banker, fall for a brooding artist (Bollywood star Aamir Khan) or a hunky clothes washer (Prateik)? The sex/class conflicts are way too twee. C+
