Review

Ghajni 2008 is a very good film seen on a silver screen after a long time. The Film excells in production values with first rate cinematography. The Film contains quite tense moments with a dose of high octane violence and gore, but it does not repels the cine-goers as these elements form a basis in this revenge flick. The story line is not new but derived from some old films of the west and bollywood has produced many films on similar lines. However, the execution of subject is handled with utmost perfection that leaves a viewer spell-bound during the presentation at the cinema. The Film Ghajni showed Aamir Khans' one of his carriers' best performance with a muscular touch which is a delight to watch. I along with my friends had seen GHAJNI three months after its original release (dec2008) in India. The movie did a good bussiness as my friend owns a cinema hall in Karachi-Pakistan and he was of the of the view that film recovered its import cost in one go and in re-runs made two times did a fairly good turnover. It was breeze of fresh air to see people young and old visited at the four major cinemas where Ghajni was released.This film could be stated at its best in terms of music, cinematography and sound effects. For us what has promted me / us to see it again was asin only. It is after a long time a bollywood actress touched our hearts. THE FILM IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR ALL WHO WISH SEE A GOOD ACTION THRILLER WITH A DECENT ROMANCE FREE FROM VULGARITY OF ANY SORT. oN A SCALE OF ONE TO 10 IT SHOULD MERIT 9.1/10---EXCELLENT ! --platform47.com

Aamir Khan is suffering from acute short-term memory loss set off by being brutally beaten and witnessing the violent murder of his girlfriend Asin. Any events and information over 15 minutes old is deleted from his memory, but he vividly and clearly recalls what happened till the moment he witnesses Asin's murder. He's got to work around this handicap, but with methodical and meticulous determination. Aamir etches a path of clues that lead him on his path of revenge.To overcome his memory loss, he carries around a sheaf of Polaroids and when he is really sure of a piece of information, he has it tattooed on his body, which stands in for the damaged part of his mind. His indelibly marked torso is the repository of his grief, his rage and his reason to go on living.

To sum up, Ghajini is commercial Hindi cinema at its best. The film has 'Hit' written all over it. --platform47.com

Ghajini is an Aamir khan film all the way.Aamir delivers his career-best performance. In the first place, it requires courage and maturity to name the film after the villain. Knowing how egoistic our stars are, something like this is next to impossible in Hindi films. A lot has been said and written about the GHAJINI look -- Aamir's hairstyle and his dream physique. It's awe-inspiring and if more and more people adopt the 'Aamir look' or hit the gym, it would be courtesy the actor.

As far as his acting is concerned, he's natural as the tycoon, but like a wounded, ferocious tiger when he goes on an avenging spree. Without doubt, it's a concentrated, layered performance. He acts with his entire being. His body movement, the details of his performance, everything rings true. He is both vulnerable and hard. The pain in his face when he can't remember, is palpable. It's not only the plot that carries GHAJINI. It's also the mood and the expression on Aamir's face that makes GHAJINI a treat. --platform47.com

About the Actor

Aamir was first introduced as a child artiste in the 1970's hit Yaadon Ki Baaraat (1973) -- he was the youngest child in the trio. He 'quit' movies and went on to become the state tennis champion for Maharashtra. Aamir also fell in love with the girl next door in the meantime. He proposed to her the day he turned 21, and she accepted. But apparently, there was opposition since she was from a Hindu family and he, from a devout Islamic one. So, they eloped, got married and returned to their homes. Aamir's wife Reena even appears in the song "Papa Kehte Hain" that made him the darling of the nation. From the tremendous success of Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988), which was released when he was 23, he has blossomed into India's finest actor. His list of sterling performances include Dil (1990), _Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin (1990)_, _Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander (1992)_, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke (1993), Andaz Apna Apna (1994), Rangeela (1995), Raja Hindustani (1996), Ishq (1997), Ghulam (1998) and Sarfarosh (1999).

I will at times watch movies made from all over the world. Recently I have taken to watching some of the more recent Bollywood flicks. Ghajini was a breathtaking movie. I kind of enjoy the musical parts of the movie as they did tend to tie in well with the story line. I loved the contrast between the Sanjay dating Kalpana and the Sanjay with the bad memory. Aamir is a very wonderful actor. I was very impressed how he was able to carry the short term memory loss. The actor playing Ghajini was positively evil! A very very well done movie. I have the sound track and love it. The movie was heart breaking in certain spots. Having lost some I loved very much I could identify with Sanjays grief.

I think India has a lot to offer and this movie proves my point. One final thing, I didnt realize it, but the movie was 3 hours long. Longer than the normal movies I am used to watching. The happy part of this being I did not realize it was 3 hours until it was over and I happened to look at the clock. The movie kept my attention completely!!

Well done! I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to break out of the rut of Hollywood.

OMG!!! I saw Ghanjini during Bollywood week on the IFC network. It was sort of by accident because I was checking the guide and read the description and became curious because it sounded exactly like a description of the movie Momento (EXCELLENT movie, by the way!!!). So, I decided to check it out. I was NOT at all disappointed! This movie is so incredibly executed and brilliantly acted out. I was literally on the edge of my seat during most of the movie! What an amazingly genius potrayal by lead actor Aamir Khan!!! Brilliant! I can't say enough about this movie. This Christmas, I bought two copies.....one for myself and one for my dad. He loves action-packed movies that are done with class, style, and gripping performances. Ghanjini fits that description PERFECTLY!!! Enjoy it! :)

For so long I have wanted to review Ghajini, each time I put it off because I just cannot seem to find the right words to put down that would do justice to this movie. In one word, WOW! I have seen this movie 15 billion times (ok, tongue in cheek), no but for real I have seen it so many times I lost count. The 3 hours go by so fast for a weekend watch and I have the movie divided into mental sections that I watch every night until the movie is finished, only to start all over. Ghajini makes me laugh until my ribs ache and cry too. Oh and did I mention how my jaw drops at the last 15 minutes of the movie.

I'm sure you're aching to get to the crème of the crop, so I'll make it easy. A quick warning though, this is in no way the Hindi version of the movie Memento! The only thing the two movies have in common would be a protagonist with short term memory loss who carries a Polaroid camera with him everywhere to keep new memory, along with tattooed messages all over his body. Oh and I suppose they both share the loss of a loved one. Besides these, the two movies couldn't be any farther apart.

The movie starts out with a group of curious medical students looking for a real life case for their capstone project. They find one that seems really interesting, but are told it's a police case, which means they cannot study it, hence the opening into the life of Sanjay Singhania, the bald guy with scars running in different directions on his head. The sheer rage at which this guy murders his victim seems unrealistic and definitely uncalled-for. I found myself wincing as I watched these scenes. Anyway, one thing leads to the other, cops trail the murder evidence up to Sanjay's apartment and that's when we get a look at Sanjay's diary.

I thought I would never watch this film. Then I saw it and vowed I would never watch it again. Then I bought it, and now I want everyone to watch it.
Once again, Aamir Khan has given us an impossible character in an amazing story. How can he do it? By sheer hard work motivated by enormous talent and an endless understanding of his character and all characters.
It is beyond my words to describe, except to say he is an exceptional actor who creates unforgettable films. Don't think you know this film from the posters. There is nothing predictable or derivative about it.
Thank you, Master Aamir.

Aamir Khan as Sanjay Singhania paired with Asin as Kalpana: the beauty and chemistry of these lovers is beyond compare. Captivating, though very violent story. The setup of learning about the short term memory loss and flash back through the diary keeps the viewer engaged in the story. Filled with great songs: Bekah and Guzaarish are among my all time favorites. This is Aamir Khan at the top of his game (physically as well) and I like this movie just a tiddly bit more than 3 Idiots, PK or Dhoom 3, my other AK favorites.

I've watched this film a few times, the movie keeps you waiting for the next piece of the puzzle. Don't think I could really add anything pertinent. Other reviewers covered pretty much everything.

Well, except, am I the only one that wondered how drunk the translators were when they did the lyrics for the song "Guzarish"? Seriously, were the Indian censors sleeping? Did the translators just want to know how much they could get away with?

When I first saw it, I had to back it up. More than once! I still giggle at the thought.
