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

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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
