Ghajini -शोर्ट टर्म मेमोरी लॉस


*** This comment may contain spoilers ***
So so so another Friday and here comes the awaited Ghajini, but fails badly to fulfill the expectations Unexpected songs and overused angel like(asin's) scenes again . Riyaz Khan has a splendid entry, and tried to over act in every frame as much as he can , but is only used to introduce year 2005 of Sanjay's life. List of disappointments is long but let move on to the plot .

Sanjay Singhania (Aamir Khan) is a suffering from a "short term memory loss" which later becomes his salutation , and this time his limit is 15 minutes . Later in the story it is revealed that His beloved Kalpana was murdered by Ghajini (Pradeep Rawat) and that is the only thing he remembers , the movie is based on the same OLd "Eye for an eye" framework , the difference is the execution .but Whats the difference ? Sanjay, with his limited memory and eight pack abs, lives for one purpose – revenge.

Pradeep Rawat as Ghajini has done a splendid performance , besides Asin has been like as angel throughout the movie helping the needy (quiet common in tollywood n bollywood), acted well in fact too good as a débutante। Jiah khan; i would assume her only use was to get some "lattu lattu" effect, in fact it seems her words "Mera Ganna zaroor Dekh Ke Jaana" are meant for the audience.

And what still baffles me is how was Sanjay able to read the two diaries in 15 minutes(one of the important scenes for story ). Remembers every thing for while chasing Ghajini ; Deals with numerous gangsters and puts them "चारों खाने चित ", all in fifteen minutes . And then all of a sudden Sanjay remembers that : "oh! i was playing an amnesiac" and forgets everything again. Perhaps this is the only movies where i have seen a Magnate dressed in , firstly a half sleeve shirt with formals and secondly the sleeves (half ones remember) rolled up, reminded me of Jackey Shroff .



Same old style ; and worse is Jackie is playing a 'Gunda', Amir is a Businessman

Whats good about the movies is that is goes in a flow and offers more or less a good timepass but its a waste of time if you don't like violence or a show of six pack . And what if you think logically : well don't expect you will find any of Aamir's "percfectionism" after all he suffering from short term memory loss.
