As expected, the movie has had a huge advance booking and created a houseful scenario in the capital of India. Incidentally, the movie's original Tamil version was also a major hit, and so 'Ghajini' in Hindi has proved its credential on the opening day and has been doing better everyday even in the wake of fierce competition from Akshay Kumar starrer animation movie titled 'Jumbo'.
Since Aamir is a perfectionist, he has left no stone unturned to hit his usual target of perfection. Looking at 'Ghajini', we find it very rewarding due to its very story. Besides, director A.R. Murugadoss tells the story in a wonderful way. And on top of all this, the movie has Aamir Khan at the helm of affairs. So, the movie has to succeed at the box office. No surprise!
Then there is no scope for getting bored. Yes, the genre of the movie isn't very different though for Aamir it is as the latter has been moving from one to another in his movies. In spite of it being the usual Bollywood stuff, the screenplay keeps one glued to his or her seat.
The reason is simple that the same story has been told differently with a lot of twists. Though it's a war between the good versus evil , yet it's free from the so called violence. The good prevails over the evil and brings solace to the audience. That's all.
Thus, he remembers his love interest and tries to pursue his lost path. He carries with himself Polaroids that remind him of his past. In this movie, Aamir tattoos them on his body, which constantly remind his mind .
He starts off with what happens in the past, comes to the present, falls back in time and thus returns to the earlier theme. Again, the loss of memory in a movie isn't new. Many movies have shown a sort of amnesia.
But, 'Ghajini's memory loss is very different inasmuch as the hero recalls events but for 15 minutes only. Aamir has displayed extraordinary skill in the portrayal of a man suffering from short-term memory loss. He doesn't speak but says everything through his eyes - body language.
Every narration is full of that's the beauty ! Thus, the movie will be remembered for long. Every expression is strong enough to tells a lot. This saves the movie showing undesirable fighting scenes and turning the movie into a violent one.
His body movement is great indeed! Historically, following the success of his Tamil movie, the director was looking for an actor to play his bold character of Shiva. When he met with A. R. Rehman and asked him to name a Bollywood actor for the coveted role, the latter suggested Aamir Khan for the lead role. Aamir accepted the offer but with a rider that he would begin its shoot after eight months.
Kangna had reportedly leaked out to the media that she has bagged the coveted role. The director had decided to repeat his heroine Asin for the Hindi version, too. She has played her role fabulously and proved worthy of acting opposite Aamir Khan.
'Guzarish', 'Behka' and 'Kaise Mujhe' are the notable ones. Ravi Chandran's cinematography is brilliant too. Less said is better as one needs to watch and then conclude. Hence, the movie might prove the best one of the year, both acting as well as money-wise.
