Ghajini Review

– Ghajini is probably the most difficult movie review I have ever done (out of the 13.5 movie reviews that I have done.) I will tell the reason in the end.

– I saw Memento a few years back. The best part of that movie was it’s unique screenplay. It starts from the end and slowly unfolds backwards. After that I watched the Tamil movie Ghajini and found that there was no reason to like that version except for Surya’s acting.

– Aamir khan is a dedicated actor. He can easily forget that he is a normal human being when going to the extremes for the sake of the character of the movie. I mean normally everyone works for 6 pack abs, but Aamir forgot when to stop exercising and he ended up with a 8 pack abs.

– Polaroid instant cameras have been out of production for a couple of years now (almost). So the camera was probably bought a few years back in anticipation of the upcoming 15 minute short term memory loss. I am still wondering how he didn’t forget to buy the refill sheets for the camera.

– Flashbacks are pun in a movie where the central character cannot remember for more than 15 minutes. I mean the only flashback that Ghajini could remember is the flash from the last picture session with his camera, provided the session happened in the last 15 minute interval.

– Speaking of interval, by the time you are into the theatre hall to watch the second half after the interval, you might tend to forget the first half. Be sure to carry a polaroid camera to take picture of important scenes and write them down or just Tatoo it on your arms and legs.

– It is believed that, to keep the character real Aamir photographed himself with a polaroid camera by standing in front of the mirror so that he doesn’t forget to carry it wherever he goes.

– The idea is also found to be stolen by some of the local tea shop owners to capture instant pictures of college students who keep accounts in their shop and never pay back. You know, just to show a proof.

– College girls and boys have so many boy friends and girl friends these days that in order to keep track of who they go out with on which day, they carry a polaroid camera wherever they go. Cellphones are now out of fashion.

– Husbands are idiots. It is a self realisation from a long time. We don’t remember what we ate for lunch by dinner time. So in order to prevent left over fraud (Husbands being served left over food from lunch, during dinner) husbands now carry polaroid camera to take pictures of what they ate for lunch.

– You won’t believe the next thing. All of a sudden Polaroid has started producing the camera again, due to this social demand. I am not sure if they know, but it is very likely that the consumers will forget about the camera,as soon as the movie runs off from the theatre.

– If the movie becomes a flop, the only reason will be that people forgot to watch the movie.

– You know what, I almost forgot I had to write a review of this movie, but instead got sidetracked into writing some random “Forgettable” stuff.

– The previous point is probably ok in comparison to the fact that I forgot to watch the movie before I reviewed, which is why it was very difficult to review.

– Oh well, I forgot that I had to delete this post from the draft and instead ended up posting it.

– I also forgot I am not supposed to do a blog post until next year. Wait, what is this. I see a photograph of fireworks and something written on the bottom (Photograph’s bottom, not mine) – “Blog readers, Happy New Year, wish”. Ah! I have to wish you all a very Happy New Year, Let me tell that before I forget.

Wish you all a very Happy New Year.

I only hope that you don’t forget to comment on this post.

  1. Wow. Good review. Never read anything like this before.

    Tamil Ghajini was bad. I switched it off after 1 hr (one advantage of not watching a movie in the cinemas ;)). I don’t think I’ll like the hindi one too.

  2. Bad memory… Failing to remember… Huh? What am I doing here? Oh the date is 29th December already… Let me wish you a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR just in case I forget. Why am I typing this? weird… πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

  3. Brave heart from Madurai ippadi oru movie ai pathu thalarndu pogalama?
    Why buy a polaroid camera when you can simply make a comment about lack of salt in a dish and wife will immediately tell you “how come you didn’t say anything when you hogged it at lunch?”
    But this is not what I wanted to say. i came here for something else. can’t remember what. Never mind.
    Wish you a wonderful 2009. or should I flashback and wish you a wonderful 2008?

  4. Hey Everyone, Thank you all for your comments. Let me assure you that I haven’t forgotten to reply back to your comments. I am going to sit back and reply to the comments as soon as I can, just as I usually do. I think I have accumulated a hell lot of a comments backlog. I also have a million blog posts to read from my blog friends. I will be reading them soon too!

    See you folks.

  5. Hi Madurai Veeran,

    This is probably the most funtastic article I have read in connection with Ghajini. I wouldn’t call it a review though. By the way, it would become the biggest blockbuster of all time… and I predicted it on my site too.

  6. This comment is probably the most difficult one I have ever made. I will tell the reason right away. I forgot to read the post before I could comment 😐 I will now go read it.

    ——- 4 minutes later ———

    Hehehe, funny review – and a smart one, since you managed to write it without putting yourself through the torture πŸ˜‰

    Did you manage to see it finally? πŸ™‚ Or did you go by this review and forgot to? πŸ˜€

    -g

  7. Good one. I saw Momento last year sometime – Unlike you firangs, we need to wait for a CD or downloaded version πŸ™‚ I loved the concept.

    Have not seen the Tam version, to date.

    Saw Ghajini – Hindi one. It was just way too violent for a Boloywood flick, so I can imagine how the Tam one was. Glad I didn’t see it. Too many jump cuts there also! I can’t, for the life of me, figure out why Aamir has not seen Momento & learned from there!!!? Why, Aamir, why? Why can’t you???

  8. Enjoyed reading the review. Amir has done a great job. No one else in bollywood would have done like this.
    Anyways, Happy new year.

    That is an interesting question that everyone on earth ask at some point. That’s when they buy a
    digital camera. Happy New Year to you too!

    A good way to review πŸ™‚
    A good way to review is to not review the way it should be reviewed.

    Aamir was a candy to the eyes πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    Ok, what about Nose, ears and Mouth?

    Nita

    Paarkavae illa innum. Adhan. Hopefully this weekend.

    i came here for something else. can’t remember what.
    Exactly so in life. We come here for something and we can’t remember it throughout our life and
    keep doing something else.

    Wish you a wonderful 2009.
    Happy New year to you too.

    Indian Filmdom
    I wouldn’t call it a review though.
    Thank you, and I wouldn’t call this random piece a review either.

    By the way, it would become the biggest blockbuster of all time…
    Being a blockbuster usually has nothing to do with bringing out humor from something.

    Amit
    Great review! πŸ˜†
    Thank you πŸ™‚

    I assume from it that you didn’t like it.

    There you go, You got the hang of it!

    funny review – and a smart one, since you managed to write it without putting yourself through the torture πŸ˜‰
    To do justice, I am going to undergo the torture very soon. Atleast I won’t feel the urge to write a review halfway through the movie.

    Or did you go by this review and forgot to? πŸ˜€
    Actually, my review makes me want to watch the movie πŸ™‚

    Praveen – Happy New year πŸ™‚

    I loved the concept.
    Me too, it was very unique.

    Have not seen the Tam version, to date.
    Nothing big.

    I can’t, for the life of me, figure out why Aamir has not seen Momento & learned from there!!!?

    Why, Aamir, why? Why can’t you???
    I wondered too. I mean, They could have worked the story and screen play in a different way for
    the Hindi version. and yes, Happy New Year!

    Shivya – Happy New Year πŸ™‚

    ?
    !

    Appuvish Happy New year and welcome to my blog!
    Amir has done a great job. No one else in bollywood would have done like this.
    Agree, he is one of a kind. He can take a lot of effort to perform a role, like how Kamal Hassan
    does.

    Nikhil
    I am not watching this movie! I love memento too much!
    You still can watch and forget πŸ™‚
