Aamir Khan on Black

Well, if I'd sat through the entire movie and had done a full review of Black, it would definitely be in alignment with Aamir Khan's take (sorry, the quote is from DC, so no link):
The sensibility wasn't right for me, I couldn't make out if they were living in a museum or a library or a church. The performances were over the top.
No doubt referring to Big B's fricken British accent.
Most importantly, it was about a child who had these problems, an alcoholic person comes and says you have to leave her alone with me for forty days, and he slaps her around. I don't know of any parent who would agree to that.
Ouch. And I wasn't even thinking of the pedophile angle.
