If you can digest an overdose of physical violence, then Ghajini is a film you shouldn’t miss for Aamir Khan’s unforgettable performance..Ghajini is a film that ought to be seen for the sheer novelty of its theme.Inspired and to some extent, lifted from Hollywood’s Memento, it tells the story of a man who can’t remember anything beyond 15 minutes.He suffers from short term memory loss.
Cast: Aamir Khan, Asin, Mohit Ahlawat, Jiah Khan
But somehow he has found ways to remind himself of just one thing that he has to find and kill the man whose name his murdered lover ( Asin ) whispered in his ear just moments before he too was hit on the head with an iron rod, never to fully recover his memory again.So, through tattoos and polaroids and notes he keeps reminding himself of just one aim to find Ghajini, the killer whose face and whereabouts he neither knows, nor can remember.
As our amnesiac hero, Sanjay Singhania (Aamir), closes in on Ghajini and goes about bumping off one bad guy after another, we are given repeated flashbacks into his past life, when he fell in love with a struggling model Kalpana (Asin), an Indianized version of the French Amelie who helps the poor and needy on the streets.It is this very quality of Kalpana that makes her the target of a gangster, who hunts her down and kills her.
Now, Sanjay, with his limited memory and eight pack abs, lives for one purpose revenge.He is like a loose canon, a self-propelled torpedo that keeps veering off the course and leaves behind a trail of broken bones, wrung necks and pummeled jaws wherever he passes through.
And oh! I almost forgot.There is also Sunita ( Jiah Khan ), a medical student interested in the case study of our amnesiac hero. She’s a frail collegian who hinders and helps Sanjay in his mission.
