Ghajini Movie Review

Ahh.. The biggest movie of the year is finally here. Aamir Khan’s Ghajini brings with it the huge amount of expectations that people usually carry with them to the theatre while watching an Aamir Khan film. The full house go crazy while Aamir first appears on screen, the craze is mind boggling something that I haven’t witnessed since I started watching movies a decade and a half ago.

Sanjay Singhania is a business tycoon, who has very recently come down to India. Due to certain weird circumstances, he falls in love with Kalpana (Asin), a sweet lovable girl with a heart of gold. While Sanjay is on a business trip, Kalpana in an attempt to save girls from some dreaded criminals puts her life at risk. On the day of Sanjay’s return, Kalpana is killed by Ghajini while Sanjay is injured on his head. This leads to a mental disorder called anterograde amnesia. Sanjay suffers from short term memory loss; he forgets everything in 15 mins! His only goal though is to kill Ghajini, how he battles against all odds is what forms the rest of the tale.

Ghajini Hindi Review

Your first reaction after watching Ghajini is WOW What a movie!! You look at your watch to realize 3 hours have breezed through. You catch hold of your breathe and come to terms with a movie that has just managed to blow you away. It aint a movie that you would remember and want to watch 5 years from now, in fact it lacks repeat value as the thrill would be missing the second time. But what Aamir Khan and the Ghajini team have served is a fulto masala entertainer. It has comedy, romance, action, a typical 90s villian, great music, emotions.. Ghajini has got it all.

There are so many memorable moments and scenes in Ghajini. To describe a few..

1) When Aamir is chasing the cop and Jiah, he suddenly loses his memory. Yet tries to recognise Jiah by her rapid breathe rate.

2) The Aamir – Asin love story. He’s a business tycoon; she’s a pretty ordinary girl. The way their love story begins is sweet and extremely funny!

3) The villian! Neck and fingers filled with gold jewellery, a silver tooth, menacing look et al. Ghajini is a typical 90s villian. Almost perfect for a revenge movie. The most surprising thing was, the movie has been named after the villian, which usually isnt the case with Bollywood movies. Has a movie ever been titled, inspired by the character of a non-star villian?

4) The climax! Scintillating stuff. It seems quite easy to predict, what could happen next. But the short term memory loss makes the movie quite unpredictable.

A.R. Murugadoss directing his first Bollywood film deserves credit for his brilliant execution of the script. The climax of the Hindi version is different, if compared to the original in Tamil. The brilliant camera work and fantastic background score is one of the many other positives.

So is it too violent? The answer is No, it isn’t a very violent movie. Apart from certain scenes like the tattoos being scratched off from Aamir’s chest – abdomen and a few physical fights resulting in twisting of necks, the violence is limited to about 15 mins. Far less brutal than the CCTV captures of the Mumbai terrorist attacks that was aired on almost all news channels.

Any flaws? Yes, the songs. About 2 songs too many in the first half; Behka Main and Aye Bachchu were unnecessary.

The performances were top notch. Asin proves to be a very good actress, quite unexpected as I wasn’t expecting much from her, after those promos. Good screen presence, bubbly and charismatic.

Aamir Khan is brilliant! An actor who can never disappoint, neither with his performances nor the overall quality of his movies. He is by far the best star-actor of the decade. What with a different variety of movies like Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, Rang De Basanti, Taare Zameen Par and now Ghajini! All very different, but brilliant nonetheless!

Overall, Ghajini is a must watch, a complete paisa vasool entertainer. A movie that should be experienced only on the big screen. Lastly, watch it for Aamir Khan and his sheer brilliance on screen. He is to Bollywood, what Sachin Tendulkar is to cricket. A legend!

Rating: ★★★★☆

Other Notes – The atmosphere in the movie hall was electrifying, something that I have never witnessed. Going by the audience reaction, the movie seems to have lived upto the expectations. People were glued to their seats till the very end.

Hope you all enjoy Ghajini. Post your Ghajini reviews below. Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year from the Indicine Team!

Update – What Aamir Khan expected actually happened. In an interview, he mentioned that if people walk out with his physique and 8 pack abs in mind, then the movie has failed to connect. So yeah, the movie did connect and Aamir’s looked great in Ghajini. In all the excitement, I missed Jiah Khan too, it was a forgettable performance. Her most important scene was when Aamir gets down from the scooter to fight the goons, Jiah’s expressions while trying to stop Aamir was hard to digest!

  • First of all no one tells us rajputs what to do okay, like everyone I came here and just told what I had to say about the freaking movie and that is my right got it. Who the hell knows which jungle tribe you come from but I live in democracy and you see screwhead in a democracy anyone can say whatever they want, nobody asked you to open your stinking mouth nobody gives a rats ass about what you have to say about piracy, and here is some very useful advice LOSER!

    Just chill dude, ITS JUST A MOVIE!! there are alot more important things in this world than worrying about how much money amir khan makes. And YEAH if you have much better things to do why the hell do you keep coming back and getting slapped by me everytime. I can bet you must one of those loser desi guys like a really dark ugly kaala bhoot who just wants to let out his frusteration, and a really frusterated one that is and that’s why you want to take a hit at a girl, like I said you have no balls, because only a guy who has no balls can try and hit a girl, you’re probably not man enough to stand up to another guy. I watch pirated dvd’s so big deal many people do, how does that affect you?? Got nothing else better to do. If you feel so strongly about it then TAKE ME TO COURT AND SUE ME IF YOU CAN LOSER! I can bet that would be a dream come true for you since you would have the perfect oppurtunity to get alot of money out of me. And you know something else, I know why you probably want to hit a girl, you must have gotten rejected by a girl, or you probably must be a south Indian yourself, I have seen enough south Indian movies and in all of them I see a very common thing and that is how they demean woman and they think women are trash, and that’s why the dowry is much down in south India, maybe that’s why you like ghajini so much, asin looks like a bimbo without brains nonstop chatter and cheap comedy, you’re worse than the dog shit lying on the streets, that’s why your thinking and attitude stinks. So you mind your own businees and go donate your time to more important things life, and maybe you might want to start by spending some of your imaginery big bucks and go get some plastic surgery done on your face, and then find a nice shrink to help you fix your brain, just like in the movie ghajini. I also know for a fact south Indians are very emotional people mayb that’s why you’re taking this so hard. We rajputs never lose and won’t back down even for a minute you started it and I will decide when it ends LOSER! so just give up and don’t resond back, and go to some small village and marry a dark little ugly girl and screw her really hard and make her produce your little ugly rodents.

  • Raj & Kiran: Please stop it.. why don’t u take each other’s e.mail address and fight far away from this website ( and indicine team: why are u quiet?!)

    You can both meet and kill each other, pull each other’s hair, punch, scratch, kick like kids, or better to do the wrestling, as u wish, but far away please as we are interested to read some comments ( positive & negative) about the movie but not the conversation between 2 ppl fighting here!

    And Kiran: You’re a woman, and it’s not nice for any woman to insult a celibirty the way u did, by asking Raj to clean Aamir’s toilet and his floor!! ( and u hv started it.. started humiliate one of the commentators here and he said nothing except: why do u kiran watch a pirated copy.. and that’s not a big deal, he didn’t swear, he didn’t tell u anything so bad that he deserves your reply.. I think u are wrong Kiran and u must mind your language.. if u respect your colleague so u will win back his respect too, but if u try to humiliate anyone so you’re facing now all this.

    Indicine Team: this page turned to a war section.. I think u only have to end this discussion

  • Fathiya I don’t want to drag this any further okay. We are here to comment on movies not on what people do. If you read raj’s last commnet carefully, “people like yourself”, what is that supposed to mean, I’m a complete stranger to him, he doens’t know me. Also if I do anything legal or illegal, how is that affecting him??? Even in my personal life I never let anyone point fingers at me prejudicely, he doesn’t know who I am, he doesn’t need to get into my personal business, who asked him to open his mouth. For your information Fathiya I’m not wrong, look at how he talks to a woman, and you know something else Fathiya, what is that supposed to mean “you’re a woman and its not right to insult celebrities like….? That’s sounds very sexist and demeaning to women, what do you mean to say just because I’m a woman its not okay and he’s a “guy” and its all okay he told me that I should go clean his toilets and that was right??? Fathiya no offense but just because I’m girl it doesn’t mean I should be the one to back down, what era are you living in, in today’s world woman are just as good as men, actually I have to say even better. My parents didn’t raise me to be a second glass citizen, I’m the granddaughter of a very highly respected officer, and we know what it means to live life. And no Fathiya I’m not wrong, even in my personal life I don’t even interfere in the matters of my closest friends let alone strangers, I’m not raj’s mother, sister, cousin, aunt or whatever….that he needs to be worried about what I do, he’s the one who was looking for an excuse to fight, and you know what in real life if you go around interfering into people’s matters expect to get your ass kicked. It’s a very Indian or desi thing, Indians are full of double standards and they love telling others what to do and they turn around and do completely the opposite. Also Fathiya you sound like one of those old fashioned outdated girls, who lets a man boss her around and tells her what to do. Whatever is wrong for a girl is also wrong for a guy, GOT IT!!! And one more thing celebrities are not God’s who need to be worshipped. Fathiya why don’t you tell raj that its not right to kick girls around, you’re so worked just because I told him to clean amir khan’s toilet and he wants to hit a girl and you’ve got nothing to say about that??? That just shows where you stand as a girl, sounds like you have no honor and self-respect. very sad and sorry indeed. In real life there was guy like raj who insulted me just because I wouldn’t go out with him and my brother and cousin took him, hung him upside down in the garage and beat the crap out him, raj is lucky he’s not in front of me, otherwise he wouldn’t have opened his mouth. Of course I gave him some pretty good slaps and kicks also, I’m rajput I know how to fight so everyone just back off only cuz you’re all online you’re lucky otherwise I wouldn’t have let you all talk this much.

  • Kiran: you got it allllllll wrong! Are you a new member here or old one?! I can’t remember you, but if you’re a new one then please take my advice: You don’t know Raj and his history or know anything about the fight between us.. between Raj and me on this website.. do u know why I enterfered and said all that to you? Because I faced – and I’m still facing – this problem with Raj.. not only Raj but also other guys whom you should avoid e.g. kalyan, Punjabi Sher, Sudeep, Yamini.. all these guys are similar.. love to fight.. and love to use bad language.

    You misunderstood what I said ( if u want to know me..read my old comments on other pages and u won’t be able to read some of our old discussion because all Raj’s bad words were deleted, I reported the abuisive comments ( and you could do so) and that’s the best thing u do.. to avoid headache with these guys. I tried my best to shake hands with them, be friendly, but they didn’t like my comments and considered themselves the only right ppl, and the best ppl submitting their comments and no way to convinece them that they’re wrong.

    I told u kiran: youu’re a woman and it’s not nice for any woman to insult a celebrity this way, and by asking Raj to clean Amir’s toilet & floor) that”s what I asked you.. I didn’t say that u don’t have any right to answer back. If u start abusive words with Raj and other guys so you’ll get the reply which you don’t like to hear.. therefore I tried to give u some advice, ignoring them is the best u do here. and be careful.. some ppl wl use your name and post comments on your belhaf.. under yr name!! they’re using my name since 2 days and they comment on Raj’s words.. to put more salt on the wounds.. that’s their intention, so be careful.

    And.. do you know that he’s my biggest enemy on this website? You no nothing about the past.. he used slang, very bad words which I don’t like to mention, so avoid him as you don’t deserve all this.. you don’t deserve to hear some bad words coz he’ll do it if you continue replying to him and he’d never stop.

    It’s upto you if u take my advice or not.. but that’s what I’m doing now.. avoiding him.

  • kiran, you are absolute crap. forget about calling yourself a rajput – you a trash underbelly scum
    like all rajputs are. we all know that rajput men used to be women raping drunkards, and the rajput women were all dirty whores. rajputs were and will always be the trash lowlifes of society. i know, cos i have a few rajput scums as my servants. so stop having delusions of grandeur you cheap criminal !!

    now, i was speaking to one of my rajput servants the other day. he said he is more than happy to come and see you, and stick your imaginary sword up your vagina so that your uterus bleeds and you are never able to have a child again. if not, he is more than willing to rape you, and screw you so hard that the baby in your womb will become pregnant !! now, stop pestering me and go back to your servant job in the pig farm where you belong.
    and try to write with proper english grammar next time. you mentioned you will screw me. well trash, unless you have a dick, how are you going to screw me ?? men screw women, women dont screw men. so get it right you stupid criminal. go back to school and learn proper english.
    just as i had thought, typical underbelly scum of society, uneducated, has a dick, and is a criminal.
    how is that moustache of your coming along ? and those disgusting spots on your face, and the smell of chappati ???
    now, iam not going to waste any more time on you, as you are a cheap criminal, and it will make me feel low. so bugger off to your pigfarm you criminal, and dont waste my valuable time.

  • So that’s IT! This is the story of how you came to be BORN!!! Your were created as a result of your mother having been the object of infactuation of a bunch of lustful wild beasts in the jungle (God knows which ones), who attacked your mother to satisfy their sexual or rather should I say their mating instincts (that too very violent ones) and all of them must have had fought repeatedly on who gets to rip your mother’s pussy open and pop her cherry. Tell me is your mother some very hairy gorilla that these wild neandrathal like beasts found her so attractive that they just couldn’t stop themselves from raping her. I can just see it all happening. There must have been 5 of these wild beasts at least 6 or 7 feet tall, hair covered from head to toe, wild sharp fangs in their mouth with slim coming out of their teeth, and they must have used their really long fangs on their hands ripped your mother’s hymen and first punched a fist into her vagina, so that they could make way for their 2 or 3 foot long dicks, two of them must have grabbed her hands one on each side, two of them must of grabbed each leg and the fifth one I DON’T THINK I NEED TO SAY WHAT HE DID!!! then they all took turns and fucked her hard and since they were all different animals their different kinds of sperm combined to make well (that’s right you get no points for guessing) “YOU!!!!”. To this day scientists are clueless as to what you are.

    Fathiya was right your are najaayaz, well we don’t need to see a picture of what you look like, I can just look it up on the internet and have to just do a search on prehistoric animals, and VOILA!! their will be your father(s). Thank you so much raj for telling me the above scenerio, that explains so much why you like the movie Ghajini, because of the violence your weren’t born out of love, but a act of violent rape and not just any rape but rape by beasts of your mother, I can bet you also fuck your own sister, I’m sure with so much sperm having gone into your mother’s pussy, more than one kid must have come out.

    OH yeah you mind telling me just how many stiches your mother had to have after her pussy got ripped open, I’m sure after that all her internal organs must have fallen out and she’s been pissing non stop and she probably feeds you a cup of it every morning. HAHAHA!!!!!!!!!. Poor you, your mother can’t even claim child support, so I’m sure she has to whore around every night to feed you (After all she’s a real experienced woman by now).

  • Indicine Team: Are you sure that Punjabi Sher is Kiran.. they’re one person?!! I have a doubt about that, I mean there might be 2 person with the same name.. one original and one fake.. coz Kiran’s taste for movies is similar to my taste. .she loved Rabne and some other movies which I did and she thinks almost the same way, but Punjabi Sher is different..

  • Indian:

    It’s so easy to advice anyone.. but is it easy when it comes to you.. if u face the same problem with guys attacking u, just because they didn’t like your comment?!

    What u r asking us.. I already asked Kiran & Raj, a while ago, when she was fighting with Raj.. but this stupid Raj doesn’t leave anyone alone, and someone also created a problem for us, posting some fake comments under our name, Kiran’s and my name too.

  • Hi Fathiya,

    I agree with you… I understand your concern….But let us make sure that we don’t hurt anyone by posting

    personal comments…… Anyone can agree/disagree with anyone’s comments… But no one has any moral

    ethics to post personal attacks on any one… We all are educated and should respsect others comments….

    Please refrain from personal attacks… It doesn’t look good…. Please take this as a request and not an

    advise in the right spirit…. By being polite, you can win others hearts and create freindship……

    To all:

    Please don’t use others name, fake name to post your comments…. It doesn’t look good… Instead it will

    have negative impact…. If anyone consider himself as human being should accept my request…. It is up

    to the individuals….

    Thanks
    Indian
