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.

26 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

well...everyone has the right to their own opinion....but in my own i feel ghajini has heart..it is on of those movies which take you down to reality and touch every human emotional chord in your body...LOVE is what it talks about and how it drives a person so mad when he loses it...i think there is a person inside us who wishes he could play the role aamir did ....but we are scared of doing that...i think aam ir has done a fabulous job and my final judgment is...people who love crying and don't feel ashamed to let their emotional side touch them..its worth a watch..well you should deffo watch it...people who are heartless the main comment wud suit u....that is that aamir cant act no more...well guess what he can and and only passionate and emotional ppl who have loved once in their lives can understand that...5 out of 5...cheers...
