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.

Trivia

According to director A.R. Murugadoss the climax of the movie was rewritten by Aamir Khan. The entire location, incidents and dialogue for the climax were re-polished by Aamir and considered that version far better than his original Tamil version. See more »

Entertaining
13 April 2011 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

Ghajini is an entertainer.

It has loads of action,comedy,drama and romance which makes it a family packed entertainer.

The story is good.

Screenplay is penned very well.

But the problem is that the movie is long,it could have been trimmed 15-20 minutes and the movie even gets violent at times,which could have been shortened.

Direction by A.R Murugadass is excellent.

The music is very good.

Performance wise-Aamir Khan is menacing.He is superb.Newcomer Asin is very good.Jiah Khan is perfect.Pradeep Rawat is first rate.

Overall Ghajini is an entertainer.
