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!



  • Hey Raj, u cannot say Ghajini is no1 compared to sholay or mughal-e-azam, ghajini is today’s film released in more theatres with higher ticket price n multiplex adding to its revenue so even if it crosses all the records its profit share wud b less compared to the above legendary movies.

  • Raj From Michigan: hey… may b yor face is an ass k… don’t se such words 4 srk k mother fucker…
    wats the morphed stats in prince’s comments… ha… srk gave bollywood 3 blockbusters in last 2 years…
    next time mind yor lang k….

  • aryan,

    your point is noted. but remember, we are talking about the nett earnings of the films on thier first cinema release. ghajini has surpassed all other films in this respect. regardless of whether the film was released in more theatres with higher ticket prices or not. you cannot look at these aspects. if you do, then you will find that even a semi-hit film could be classed as the biggest hit in bollywood if you take into account the time period it was released in and the ticket prices, the number of cinemas it was released in etc.

    if you take such stats into account then you will find that in fact mughal-e-azam would beat sholay by a huge margin, thereby becoming the no.1 biggest hit in bollywood. sholay was released about 15 years later than mughal-e-azam……. more theatres, higher ticket prices etc. but that is not the case at present, as pandits do not take such stats into account, only the box office earnings matter. consequently sholay is ranked no.1 and the biggest hit in bollywood.

    wherever you look at box office stats, you will see that the biggest hits are ranked in terms of thier box office earnings and nothing else. the number of prints released, ticket prices etc do not matter.
    all repected box office pandiits use the box office earnings to declare whether a film is a hit or not, and the films ranking. nothing else.

    so, ghajini remains the biggest hit ever on its first cinema release, and it remains to be seen if it can beat the record of sholay in the future years to come.

    undoubtedly at the end of its current run, it should at least be ranked no.3/no.4 in the biggest hits of all time list. just below sholay, mughal-e-azam, gadar. but well above all shah rukh khans films including dilwale dulhaniya le jayenge.

  • It’s a fantastic movie..i was eager to see this movie from the day first when Aamir said that his new movie is comin named Ghajini.

    After coming in London, I’v seen so many movies in theatres. But i’v never seen the great reaction towards any movie which i’v seen in Ghajini..i went again to see not only movie but this time i wanted to see the people how they react and i found was any negative comments. only n only possitive reaction…up to the end in both session i’v not found even a single person who stood up from his/her seat for even a single minute…so u can understand that how much people like it…

    i’ll give ***** stars to this great movie..!!!

    Aamir has done very nice work…N Asin was wonderful..

  • FATHIYA dear hw r u?
    movie was damn good, i dont think i neet to tell more abt hw awsome it was for so many ppl have given their much pretty opinions and reviews.
    All i’m here to say some words to u,abt ur reply to mr.Ajay Ny.I really agree to what u said that shahrukh is not gay though but how can u say that karan johar is gay? had u felt this or just said point blank?
    looks like u dont like violence..gud..are u straight??? i’m sure u r a better human being..
    any ways u do really a fantastic job, maintaing online discipline…hw much r u paid by the indicine team.

  • Why would I say that Karan Johar is really gay for the following reasons:

    1) His attitude, body language proves it
    2) He didn’t marry and would never do it.
    3) During the last interview with him on the t.v., after his movie Dostana said: I don’t have to answer people if I’m gay or not, it’s my personal life ( doesn’t that prove that he is gay?)

    I saw many gay people everywhere, they’re all similar ( you feel the feminine attitude, their body language when u meet them, when they speak, move,walk.. whatever, but Shahrukh is just normal, nothing indicates that he’s a gay ( people say this out of hate.. his haters say so.. they said about many actors who’re straight that they’re gay too e.g. Hrithik, Ranbir).


  • I agree with you Fathiya, I think Karan Johar is Gay and SRK better stay away from him before he turns gay with him!!!

  • Dear Fellow movie ‘s fan,

    I haven’t watch Ghajini hindi version YET… but i had watched tamil version of Ghajini… from my opinion different artist, they do Have own style of acting…. so,,, please don”t under estimate any of the hindi nor tamil artist in between…. alrite…. CARRY ON WITH COOL AND & STEADY each actor and actress…. WELLDONE*****

  • i am waiting for billu barber.

    srk has gave us 5 hit simonteniosly. klnk worldwide 120 crore ,don worldwide 110 crores,chakde india worldwide 100 crores,oso 160 crores and rab ne 170 crores( still run)

    rab ne not bakwas movie but u not like srk so u think its bakwas.please try to big ur heart.

    what are difference u see movie or u not see movie,rab ne is a blockbuster.

    u will not watch srks movie but i love to watch amir and aksays movie,they all of our great entertainer.

    gajini is a outstanding, ossam and super movie.i already has saw it 5 times, all must watch it.

  • prince khan, you know that the movie Billu Barber was offered to akshay kumar first but he didnt take the role so srk then took it. also the movie is about irfan khan not srk so that movie should not do good. we all are waiting for cc2c to come out, it should break all the records maybe not ghajini’s but all the other records will be broken!!!

  • well folks, here it is officially:

    ghajini has become the biggest blockbuster of all times !!!!

    ” after raking in as much as 64 crores net in its first week (which is a record in itself), ghajini continues to create records in its 2nd week , garnering an astonishing 26 crores net. taking its two weeks total to 90 crores net. and it now finds itself in the elite list of blockbusters in just 2 weeks flat !!! which no other film has been able to achieve thus far in 2 weeks”.

    ”in doing so, it has not only crossed the total net earnings of om shanti om, in just 2 weeks flat, but also it now finds itself in the company of all time blockbusters like gadar – ek prem katha, and dilwale dulhania le jayenge. but the most astonishing fact is, it has done this in just 2 weeks !”

    ”it can be rest assured that by the end of its 3rd week, ghajini would have crossed the 100 crore net milestone. the first ever movie to do so. ghajini is days away from creating history in bollywood.
    no other movie has crossed 100 crores net in its first release.
    this will truly be a monumental period in bollywood as history will be made, and ghajini will be declared the biggest blockbuster ever !! at the end of its run, it should have beaten both gadar – ek prem katha, and the all time hit dilwale dulhaniya le jayenge.”

    ”shah rukh khans rab ne bana di jodi has crossed 80 crores net in 4 weeks. but aamir khans ghajini has crossed 90 crores in just 2 weeks. this should make aamir khan the king of bollywood.
    i doubt if akshay kumars chandni chowk to china will even come close to any of these two films. it would be lucky to even cross 70 crores net in its total run. i personally think it will not even cross this amount due to it being a kung fu film, and this will mean most family orientated people will stay away from it, so the audience will be limited. poor akshay.
    judging by the directors (nikhil advani) last film salam-e-ishk, chandni chowk to china may turn out to be a dissapointing film. so poor akshay again. look for his career to be on the decline after this.”

    remember you heard it from me first !!

  • Hi Raj,

    You got your stats/facts completely wrong. Please check any website ( like ibnlive, ndtv, times ofindia)

    which all clearly indicates that Ghajini had crossed 200 crores in just 2 weeks. You can also see pictures of

    Amir, Asin, Director, etc celebrating for crossing 200 crores in just 2 weeks. I hope Ghajini will be the

    biggest blockbluster hit ever in Hindi film crossing well over 400 crores by the end of its long run……

    As everyone accepts, it will be very diffcult to cross Ghajini collections for any Hindi film in future…. This is a

    record which will be diffcult to break in times of come…..

  • I see the movie last week and trust me it was awesome , i did,nt realize how fast the time was running during the movie, I love aamir once again for his brilliant work and what would i say i don,t know but this is the experience i got in the movie the feelings and anger(for the villian) i love that movie toooooo much and if someone says that this film is a waste i doubt that they don,t like these genere movie they only like only VEERZARA like crap movie.
    and regarding any violence scene i dont think theres any violence scene or nudity or any type of vugarity this is a guy film that,s why i think some girls dont like it.

  • There is no denying that Amir Khan is one of the best & most methodical actors in our country and some of his movies could easily win oscars…however once in a while he acts in movies with hack-eyed, meaningless plots…

    At such times you really wonder what on earth could be the reasons that an actor, who is nothing short of a genius (if his masterpieces are any indication) wastes his time with such tripe? Even though this disappointments only add to our realisation that he is only a human and has his own reasons for indulging in such projects, it is still a major let down though…

    Ghajini is such a movie, which had me wondering what has possessed an actor of such calibre to act in a movie, whose script is so weak and mediocre…the storyline is quite interesting & in the right hands, it could have been crafted in a slick masterpiece…however much of what I saw was undigestible & unpalatable..

    The plot is full of holes…

    1) How are we supposed to believe that a man whose memory spans only 15 minutes not only lives alone, but also plans & executes multiples murders without anybody wising up to that fact? How can he be motivated enough to kill people so ruthlessly & cunningly, if he cannot remember beyond a quarter of an hour? I mean, come on, that would mean that just to sustain his murderous rage, someone would need to be continually reminding him of what has happened to him & the love of his life…by the time, he comprehends enough to erupt with anger, he would have again forgotten everything! Atleast this should have been addressed sufficiently, but the audience is just expected to accept it without question

    2) Yeah if you watch this movie thinking that the protagonist has a memory span of atleast a day & he forgets what has happened to him every single day and wakes up every day in the morning only remembering that he has been brutally beaten up & his lover ruthlessly killed, that would have made much more sense in my opinion…that would also motivate him to train himself into a killing machine and he just needs to remember how many he has killed & how nearer he is to his ultimate goal..

    3) The flashback story of his love relationship with a struggling model asin was dull, uninspired & too predictable…I found it difficult to digest that the heroine with a heart of gold gets enough time from her struggle to establish a career to go out of her way helping people and somehow our hero happens to be just there to witness her overflowing with the milk of human goodness…very, very filmy & melodramatic…
    4) When our loverboy proposes to the love of his life and she accepts, their chemistry is as dry & cold as when they were merely friends…in fact even after both accept that they love each other, they behave exactly the way they did all along…no terms of endearment, no passionate moments (except for a couple of songs which looked completely out of place)…& we are supposed to accept that this is the love which causes amir to turn into a raging monster inspite of his memory loss
    5) Finally the villian…I had expected the villian of a movie, which is named after him to spend chills along our spines with his mere presence…what we see instead is a uncouth, loud buffoon who does not do justice to his reputation…the way the movie is named after the villian, I had expected him either to be an enigmatic presence or maybe the protagonist himself, which will be revealed at the end of the movie…no chance of any such subtlety…in fact he is the weakest villian I have seen in recent movies
    6) Strange, but he seems to be running a ragtag gang of hooligans who do not have things like guns & other weapons to stop the maruading aamir khan…the villian himself is hiding in adda with only a couple of his men to protect him, that too without weapons of any kind…also which self-respecting villian would leave his enemy (who wants to kill him, already has done away with couple of his henchmen & is extremely dangerous) alive after erasing all tatoos from his body?
    Sadly this could have been a much better movie if handled properly…I know that when I go to watch a movie, I am supposed to leave my brains at home, but that I do only for movies which don’t take themselves too seriously…you cant have everything & some things are simply too much to digest..

    All said & done, strictly a one-time watch…that too, on a dvd borrowed from somebody…

  • Hi Mohan,

    Your comments on Ghajini were completely unrealistic. You should be either die- hard fan of SRK or a

    person who hates Amir Khan for no reason. I strongly belive that no one who had seen the movie will

    agree with all of your 6 points. Please for god sake, watch a movie and think about the art, hard work,

    skills, etc presented by the actors, actress and the Director. Don’t get involved too much about logistic of

    the story, whether it can happen in real life. After all, you cannot present a movie in the same way as it in

    real life. To elabore more, you cannot see any couples or lovers singing nor dancing behind the trees…..

    But we still need songs, dance in the film for sheer entertainment… Hence all of us love it……

    At last, I want to make a point wherein all of us have every right to critize any film/movie and can have

    his/her own thoughts. I totally agree with any negative comments since all films have good and bad

    scenes. But please watch a movie from netural prespective and put your comments without any bias…….

    Finally, Ghajini had crossed more than 200 crores in 2 weeks which itself a clear indication of how

    successful the movie is….. It clearly states that all section of audiance across the spectrum (either in India

    or aboard) liked the movie….. People are the best judges and everyone should respect it………


  • satishkumar,

    no, you are wrong my friend and a little ignorant if i may say so….

    yes, ghajini did cross 200 crores in two weeks. but that figure is the GROSS figure, and it is the worldwide figure.

    the figure i was refferring to was the NETT figure, and just the all india figure NETT, not worldwide.

    so please do your research and make sure you get it right before making willy nilly comments.

    based on the NETT figures, ghajini has broken all box office records. you ask any box office pandit and they will confirm this. so please dont make comments just because you ‘think’ something to be right. please be rational and do your research properly.

    chandni chowk to china – just like i predicted in my last comment on this page, the film apparently is terrible and has no substance. the critics are all panning it. i expected this film to be awful, coming from a director (nikhil advani) who made that really boring film salam-e-ishq. i knew this director would spoil chandni chowk to china. and he has by the looks of things. poor akshay…..really really poor akshay…look for his career graph to slide after this. he deserves much better than that.

    so far, my predictions have been 99% correct. i also have this funny feeling akshays next film ‘kambakht ishq’ is going to dissapoint also. it will be a boring film.

  • Hi Raj,

    Thanks for your comments…. But let me make it clear….

    1) I want to know why do you want to segregate collections earned aboard against collections earned in

    2) Why do you want to differentiate so called CROSS FIGURE aganist NET FIGURE? What is the purpose?

    3) What senese does it make? By doing so, what exactly you are looking for?

    4) If a film makes a huge profit aborad and does badly in India, you will not accept it as successful film?

    5) What criteria do you follow to ensure a film is successful or not? Just go by Indian collections and ignore
    collections earned abroad? Do you feel this is right approach?

    6) Finally, I totally disagree with your comments for the following reasons:

    a) Any film is judge by overall world wide collections not just based on Indian collections. After all, All

    producer wants to make profit…. Hence they don’t care where they get money from…. They are just

    interested in making money…..

    b) To elaborate more on point a, Producer gets more profit within less time Abroad rather than in India.

    c) As everyone knows, Collections earned abroad are always higher since if you convert it to Indian

    Rupees. Also collections made in 1 week abroad will be equivalent to 2 weeks collections thorughtout

    India just because of converting it to Indian Rupee…..

    Finally, my frined, please restraint from posting negative comments…. Comments like ‘little ignorant’, ‘willy

    nilly comments’ will hurt others feeling…. Please respect others views and comments…. Everyone has

    every right to agree and disagree on others comments/views…. But no one has any right to critize, make

    unlawful, unenthic, unrealistic comments on others views….. Hence from now on, if you don’t agree with

    anybody’s comments, please say you disagree and state your facts/stat which willl provide an oppurtunity

    for the viewer to change his comments if proven correct….. But instead if you present negative comments

    as you are doing it now, it will always reflect your negative attitude, impartical, dishonest, disgraceful


    I hope you will take in right sprit and show professionalism hence forth…….


  • satish kumar,

    well indeed it seems you are yourself a disgraceful , dishonest and ignorant person. i was right. otherwise why would you make comments about me being impractical, dishonest etc ? when clearly iam nothing like that.
    it is obvious you are indeed ignorant and unintelligent, you comments definately are.
    i neither swore at you, or made bad comments about you. so why did you swear at me ? the fact that you have made bad comments about me shows your true personality which is shallow and ignorant and disgraceful.

    the comments i made were constructive criticism. no swear words were used. ‘ignorant’ and ‘willy nilly’ are not bad words. you should read it in the context and not assume they are rude words. you obviously are not man enough to take constructive criticism – it shows your true self.

    the reason why i used the all india NETT collections is because the bollywood box office results are still judged by the all india NETT collections, by the film industry. that is the only figure that matters to them.

    but it is true, they should take the nett worldwide collections into account to decide the films success, and not just all india collections.
    the NETT figure should always be used, because that is what the film earns after all the deductions.

  • My dear friend satishkumar,

    For the record let me make some things clear –

    1) No I am not a fan of SRK…I am in fact a bigger fan of AK (that’s Aamir Khan for you) and have enjoyed his movies like DCH, RDB, TZP etc…I still maintain that his Lagaan is one of the best movies made in India & for acting, direction, script & sheer handling of the movie, it is unsurpassed…
    2) If you don’t agree with my points, please give a logical reason…I have logically stated what I cannot accept in the movie…I am sure if you don’t agree with my logic, that’s because you have some very good reasons…which I would like to know…
    3) I would also like you to justify why you don’t feel that I have not watched the movie from a neutral perspective
    4) I agree that movie making involves hard work by all involved including actors, directors etc…it is not all for nothing…these people are some of the best-paid in the world…it is a career choice for them, that they prefer to use their creative talents & artistic skills to earn money & fame …all of us put a lot of effort in earning a livelihood & furthering our careers…that does not mean that we should watch any half-baked tripe which is sold in the name of movie…
    5) If that were the case, you need to go out & watch all the movies ever made in the world, so that the hard work by actors & directors is not wasted (LOL)…
    6) Think & tell me about a single movie by stars such as Akshay, SRK or Aamir in the recent past which has done below average business…the reason for the same is becoz these people are at the height of their careers & popularity…they have earned these by their hard work & talent…they are basically crowd-pullers…if such actors star in even mediocre movies, lots of people flock to see them & the movies earn revenue…
    7) After RDB & TZP, everybody was expecting another mind-boggling masterpiece from AK…it is well known that he is a perfectionist & acts only in carefully selected movies, choosing quality over quantity…that coupled with the fact that Ghajini has been a hit in south & the hindi version was over-hyped & promoted caused it to be such a huge hit…
    8) However people in south go in for very different fare, which is not digestible to people in metros…they like over the top action, exaggerated gestures, loud song & dance sequences and theatric acting, which (even though I am a southindian), I cannot appreciate…just becoz a movie is a hit in one part of the world does not necessarily mean that it is excellent…

    Lastly even though I am a fan of AK, he has disappointed me (& thousands of others) by acting in this tripe…I am a discerning viewer & have voiced my opinion (which is what blog sites are for)…being a fan does not mean I am blind & accept everything…

  • Hi Raj,

    Thanks for accepting that fact that NET FIGURE should be taken into account rather than CROSS FIGURE

    (nor the Indian collection alone). Iam glad to hear that from you…..

    Coming back to your personal comments on me……

    The comments which you mentioned about me like “little ignorant, willy nilly, rational and do

    your research properly,ignorant and unintelligent ” definitely hurts me since these are all

    personal comments which should be avoided…..

    I could like to reitreate once again, please restrain posting personal comments since no one

    has any right to criticize anybody personally…. As I said earilier, anyone can agree and disagree on

    anybody’s comments…. I do accept/welcome/respect constructive criticism but it should hurt the

    feeling of others…..

    Finally, I could like to inform you that the comments which I made where to bring to your notice

    what other readers/viewers think about you, when they read about your irresponisble personally comments.

    Iam not trying to pin point your character but rather want to show what others will think of you….

    I want to make sure that you learn from your mistake and should not commit in future…..

    Remember, People will judge/respect you depending upon the comment you make about others…..

    It is up to you to take it or not….. It is a good practice to accept mistake and all of them will

    respect a person who acknowledge it. Not many in the world, will accept their mistake and openly declare

    they are willing to corrrect it… Any one who accepts the mistake and tries to rectify in future

    will always succeed….. If you look at anybody who had been successful in life have always committed

    several mistake and learnt lessons from it…. It is up to you whether you want to be a successful person or



  • mohan,

    i agree. lagaan is one of the best films ever made. i too have said that many times in the past.
    i dont think there are many films in bollywood that are as perfect as lagaan.

    it is a lesson in filmmaking itself.

    with CCTC, the director ruined it. it could have been a great film, the storyline was quite good.
    lets hope akshay kumar bounces back and delivers a good well made film, with a different style of acting from him. perhaps a more intense serious type of acting, which i dont think he has done so far.

    i think nagesh kukunoors ‘eight by ten’, could be the film to resurrect akshay. i have a feeling it will be a well made film.

  • Anyone who thinks Ghajini is a great movie must be on drugs. I think the average hindi cinema goer is loosing their marbles. the bloody movie just plain sucked! I don’t see what was so great about it. The story was so flat with no details and at the end of the movie you get left wondering “that’s it”. A guy with short term memory goes after a bunch of thugs and kills everyone in sight without ever being legally held repsonsible and what love story there was NO love story the girl never even came to know who amir khan really was and how can you not know who the freaking ceo is of whatever the stupid company amir khan was ceo of. Hello its common for these people to appear on tv and newspapers not convincing at all. And why the hell did amir khan have to tattoo his entire body to remember everything. Couldn’t he have written everything down on paper (I guess he wasn’t trying to be enviornmentally friendly or something and didn’t want to waste paper.) What ever little comedy asin was tring to do was so cheesy didn’t laugh even once or thought to myself (ooh that is so cute! NOT!).

    Well one thing is for sure after watching this crappy movie that peoples standards for watching movies is really coming down and they will just watch any crap because of smart publicity on the part of the actors and most people are dumb enough to fall for it. I also hated his nephew Imran khan’s movie janne… whatever the hell it was stupid acting stupid story and stupid everything. Someone said something about respecting actors, what the hell have they done to be respected just cuz their talented, yeah well their are people of all professions out there who are good at what they do so does that mean you all respect them?? These actors are so fake they pretend to love all their fans and all that but in reality they don’t give a damn about anyone. I’m not anyone’s fan I’ll just watch a movie and forget about it and I don’t just watch any crapy thank god I watched the pirated version not worth watching in the theatre.
