Medical student, Sunita, is driven by curiosity to study the case of Sanjay Singhania, who is afflicted with short-term memory loss. She runs into him, befriends him, and finds out that he is out to kill a seemingly benevolent citizen, Ghajini Dharmatma. After warning the latter of the impending danger, she subsequently comes across a number of diaries written by Sanjay and attempts to put together a jigsaw puzzle as to how a successful and wealthy businessman became a crazed recluse, who re-lives his past through tattoos on his body, notes and Polaroid photographs on the wall of his Hiranandani Complex flat, and his sole obsession of carrying out his deadly mission - little knowing that Ghajini and his goons are out to erase every bit of evidence he has gathered and thus ensure that he ends up remembering nothing.

Did You Know?

Ghajini was made in Tamil by the same director A.R. Murugadoss. It starred Surya Sivakumar, Asin and Nayantara whereas in Hindi remake, Aamir Khan plays the role of Surya and Asin remains the common factor, Jiah Khan plays the role of Nayantara.

Continuity: Gia Khan has never seen Asin, but when they were looking for the archives of newspaper to complete the story of Amir Khan she spotted the news paper correctly with Asin's photograph. How could she identify someone's picture when she had never seen her?

User Review

This movie sucks!

Rating: 1/10

Well, after much hype, here comes the great 'Ghajini'. Strategic promotion of the movie really created some havoc. 8 packs, action blah blah blah........

Even before watching this movie, I knew that this is a copy of 'Memento', still I went to see, because I had faith and respect for Aamir.

After watching this movie, I realized that this is one of the worst movie I have ever seen. The whole plot looks confused and inappropriate. I didn't want to condemn this movie, but since this movie is so bad and stupid, I can't hold myself.

For Aamir: Dear Aamir, what are you doing? You are not made for this? C'on, I mean after giving so many sensible movies, what happened to your choice? You have even come up as an excellent director, then how didn't you notice what was happening while making this movie? Please, there are people (including me) who still love and respect you. Don't spoil your image by making senseless movies like this.

For Director: Dear whosoever, please grow up, and start making some sensible movies. You may have kiddo fantasies, but please stop making people suffer because of your fancies.

For movie: This movie seems to be lost from the very beginning. And many illogical stupid plots. A cop who loves to handle case on his own, and goes everywhere alone.

A lady police constable, who instead of informing her superior officials, calls the witness at midnight to testify if the 2 of the kidnapped girls are missing?? And on top of that, in that hospital the Ghajini himself roaming, as if that hospital belongs to him........Seriously do you use your brain before showing something?? A girl, who is faking that she is the girlfriend of some big business tycoon, doesn't even bother to find out how he looks even after months?? .....Dear writer, have you ever reached school beyond 5th standard?? I have many points to bring about this stupid movie, but I have to give some rest to my hand. I can even write a book on the stupidity shown in this movie.

Finally, the only person who seems to be suffering from short term memory loss is the Editor, who doesn't know what and when to show. This movie is a big fiasco, though it collected huge bucks because of strategic promos.
