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.

Wow
5 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

This may be the most entertaining thing I have ever seen in a theater. It is apparently loosely based (via another movie) on Christopher Nolan's "Memento", and while I enjoyed that, this is far, far more fun to watch.

Frankly, I feel like people always give away too much plot in these IMDb reviews, so all I will say is that this movie involves memory, love and some almost superhuman fight scenes.

I couldn't help but have the feeling that if Hitchcock was directing movies today, they'd be like this. This is pretty much our very own "Rear Window" in terms of being so completely entertaining while also being amazingly well made.
