The first fifteen minutes of the movie had such a negative impact that I had almost decided to leave the hall. I just could not bear the scenes at all. However, that was it…….the rest of the movie was completely entertaining.
Both Aamir and Asin rock. They look good together and the acting is awesome. Aamir is quiet expectedly good but the real surprise is Asin. She is just too good.
The storyline is not new… it’s a simple revenge story. The high point of the movie is Aamir-Asin’s love story (it’s really fresh) and Aamir’s way of taking revenge. Suffering from short term memory loss, he has notes written everywhere in his flat. He uses his body to remind himself of the revenge to be taken. He clicks photographs of people and places and makes notes on them to remember.
The action scenes are typically south Indian style – completely unbelievable! Music is good, specially the song – kaise tum mujhe mil gaye. It is a soulful song sung beautifully and picturised equally nicely.
Certain loopholes are there…like it is really difficult to believe that Asin’s character doesn’t know what Sanjay Singhania looks like given the fact that he is such a big personality. Even the magazine that interviews her…Mayapuri……..doesn’t publish a single photograph with the article! Surprise! Also, the last part of the story is narrated through a lady constable and young girl who are only partly involved in the story. How they describe the elaborate details of the muder is a mystery.
Anyways these can be ignored. Ghajini is definitely watchable if you can bear a bit of negativity in the beginning. Also, I wish Aamir Khan had bit more dialogues. He speaks really less in the movie. All in all, one of the good movies of Aamir Khan but not the best.
