I was moved to tears in the scene following the lathi charge on the peaceful protest of Aamir and co.. After meeting Aslam at his house and then Madhavan’s mother in the hospital they, he and Su, return to her apartment. Su arranges for their lunch. Aamir takes the first piece of bread but chokes…This is where he breaks down and despairs over his helplessness…  The intensity with which he did this scene reminds me of another scene in Dil Chahta Hai. Here too he feels lost and defeated when he realises that he is in love and his love is engaged to someone else. He starts feeling lonely wants to call up Saif but ends up dialing Akshay. Then he calls up his Dad but chokes-is unable to say anything, breaks down. His father understands and asks him to start home immediately.
