Even this moment, I can feel the resonating sound of'Kaise Mujhe Tum Mi Gayi' and the pain and love that defined every note of it. Ghajini to me marks the beginning of an era, when Indian cinema finds itself. Truly majestic, superhuman and most important - entertaining cinema.far far away from the pangs of intellectual revolution that washed away all the grandness and imagination from the face of movies. Thanks Aamir.for getting Hindi films out of the rut and offering us cinema. synonymous to paisa vasool entertainment, as they say. It brings back the villain, which unfortunately is lost again in all this serious and intellectual tendencies. Where are the Dr Dangs, Mogambos, Gabbar Singh. And here's a film that even bears the name of the villain - Ghajini. Bravo.welcome back.

The story is simple, but the treatment magnum, and made for multiplex. For all those Memento fans, any inspiration from the cult classic is far fetched, except for a couple of concepts. Ghajini is entertaining to the core of that term. The beautiful first half makes way for a shocking and violent second half, and all to the pleasure of movie goers. When was the last time you noticed yourself being at the edge of your seat, anticipating some respite for the pain the characters are going through on the screen.

The one sound that will haunt you is the resonating sound of the iron rod.huge and horrifying rod - being banged on the floor just near the victim's head before banging it into the head itself, smashing it. The fear of death was never so eveident before. You cna feel the pain of the Kalpana(Asin), Sanjay Singhania's(Aamir Khan) lover, when she's on the verge of death by the hands of Ghajini. Seeing your love die.and so brutally is a painful experience.and Aamir has never been so expressive of pain in his entire career. this one scene is a milestone in his career and Indian cinema. it brought tears to half the theater, and how pleased was I to see that. To me Ghajini stands as Aamir's best performance ever.

The loud and overwhelming background score is back, connecting you intimately with the film every second. Every note syncs with the emotions and intentions of the filmmaker. Great job A R Rahman. The story is a revenge plot.where a lover seeks revenge for his lover's murder, with a dash of short term memory that Sanjay suffers after the traumatic event.

You will take some fine moments back with you.the ones where Sanjay can feel the pain, misery of his soul.and lack of love.but cannot attribute it to any thought, event.due to his illness. It's heart wrenching to see him suffer.completely unaware of the source of his pain. Some of you might feel why the long and beautiful love it may slow the pace for some of you. But it was important to build up the love and gradually take to a peak, when something really traumatic awaits the fate of these two lovers. Only if you can feel the depth of their love, will you appreciate the anger and aggression of Sanjay in some mind blowing action sequences.

I wish people could keep physical laws away from cinema and aggressive action, they might feel the anger and even enjoy it. The climax action is the ultimate culmination of revenge, and the sequence of small, but angry fights you see throughout the film. Amazingly shot, it leaves the audience spellbound, and takes the movies and multiplex experience to the highest level.

There's so much about Ghajini that still stays with me.unexpressed and unspoken. I guess the only experiences that stay immortal and alive with you are the ones you can never put in words. For me it was like being transported into the world of cinema.unabashedly entertaining and paisa vasool.
