Storyline

Medical student, Sunita, is driven by curiosity to study the case of Sanjay Singhania, who is afflicted with short-term memory loss. She runs into him, befriends him, and finds out that he is out to kill a seemingly benevolent citizen, Ghajini Dharmatma. After warning the latter of the impending danger, she subsequently comes across a number of diaries written by Sanjay and attempts to put together a jigsaw puzzle as to how a successful and wealthy businessman became a crazed recluse, who re-lives his past through tattoos on his body, notes and Polaroid photographs on the wall of his Hiranandani Complex flat, and his sole obsession of carrying out his deadly mission - little knowing that Ghajini and his goons are out to erase every bit of evidence he has gathered and thus ensure that he ends up remembering nothing.

Great movie..great acting!
25 December 2008 | by carjjunSee all my reviews

Well, this movie is a change to the typical bollywood movie..which is a reason why I liked it so much.

Ghajini is a remake to the tamil movie with the same title starring Suriya which in turn was inspired by an English movie Memento. But I think personally Aamir Khan was excellent in this movie especially with his facial expressions as he doesn't have much dialogue but makes the most out of it.

The Director(Muragadoss) has done a decent job and the heroine(Asin) acted pretty well like in the tamil one basically. Jiah Khan surprisingly acted well according to me but some people i know didn't like her being casted so opinions differ on her character.

The music director is A.R.Rahman..need i say more ?!

As far as the story of the movie its pretty much the same as the tamil one except for the climax which was really the black spot in the tamil Ghajini but in this one its well thought out and most importantly directed and acted out well!

The movie is based on a man(Aamir) who has short term memory loss and searching for the killer of his lover(Asin) called Ghajini.

I don't want to give out anything else about the movie as it would spoil the experience.Go watch the movie...you'll like it!!
