It is without a doubt the most commercial movie by aamir.

The movie has nothing new to offer other than the stolen concept of 15 minutes blackout.

Its basically lovey dovey love story, villain kills heroine, hero takes revenge…

The only creative guy taking part in the movie was mr A R Rehman.Great job done by him.

Aamir khan, well, riding on his mr.perfection character may have gone thru pains of developing those 8 packs but thats not at all enough.(i take tat for granted from an actor of his stature).

What i expect is more from aamir khan,more than what other jokers are doing.
Do a lagaan, do a dil chahta hai, do a taare zameen par,…

In my views, ghajini is out and out a commercial movie, which is nothing more than 3 hours of useless cinema in a very shiny and innovative package.

May be it is Amir’s stardom that is suppressing all bad things in this movie. Except music nothing is good. Main storyline that is copy from ‘MEMENTO’ is mixed with improper SOUTH INDIAN movie maker thoughts, especially in fight scenes. After a long time I have seen Amir’s over acting. This was not his type of script. Hope for the best in 3 IDIOTS from him!!!!!

She does look glamorous, but has somehow managed to underplay that
to push the real character behind the face and looks.

It is absurd for the reviewer to suggest the romance slackens the pace of the movie. Can’t remember the last time we had a Mumbai Hindi film which ran for less than three hours. At least these days there aren’t too many sibling reunion stories! But the romance is crucial to build-up to understand why the hero is hell-bent on his revenge. And that Murugadoss does brilliantly.

One does come away thinking the movie could have been broken into two parts, the soft romance and the action with fleeting glimpses of the crime that took away the hero’s ladylove. But don’t agree with the reviewer over-analyzing the movie.

Liked the way Jiah Khan’s role has been understated, think that was crucial for the credibility of the movie. Accent is no issue these days, the Urdu-laced dialogues have vanished from Hindi films.

Aamir has played both parts convincingly, showing a lot of energy. Both the chocolate hero of old and the hardened revenge-seeker are intact.

The songs are lovely. If you, as usual accept at the start that very little in the Mumbai Hindi film industry is original (the story/screenplay etc.), then it is wonderful entertainment.

Jiah Khan cannot act and you are right about her accent… it needs some solid work.
Asin on the other hand grew on me through the movie and her scenes were the most watchable. The fight sequences with iron rods and rusted taps became unbearable.
