Ghajini Movie Review

Ghajini had broke all the records of advance booking in movie theatres. “The advance booking for the film is four times more than the record opening any movie has ever got, Khan said,” reports a Hindu. Switch on to any entertainment or news channel you will see or hear Ghajini. Its just all over the place. It is like Ghajini mania all around India. And as the movie hit the screens, the verdict is—-

SUPERHIT!!!!!!!!!! [Now stop wasting time reading this review… Go get the tickets!


Ghajini is a very powerful film despite all its flaws. It is a powerpacked blend of a solid concept and script along with strong film-making and of course the knockout performance of Aamir Khan - the very USP of the film. So all you people out there if you have even an iota of doubt whether Aamir Khan is No. 1 in India… Watch Ghajini. He is unmatched in the film. He leads the league of extraordinary actors in India. I would even go on to say that he is the Robert Di Niro of India.

There are several flaws in the script and the film but you would be too busy in the riveting story of the film, gripped by the suspense and thrill to notice them.”This is a breathless, exciting story, heart-breaking and exhilarating at the same time,” confirms critic Taran Adarsh. The film has resemblance in concept with Christopher Nolan’s Momento only in terms of the short-term memory loss of the protagonist. But the refreshingly different story-telling of master mind director A.R Murugadoss is what makes all the difference. He rejects the linear mode of story-telling and adopts the flash-backs technique to keep the viewer on the edge of his seat and his eyes hooked on to the screen.

Cinematography and screenplay are just brilliant throughout the film. All the action scenes have been brilliantly written and executed and so are the songs. I loved the way Behka was picturized and Guzarish is brilliant too.

Now coming to the best part of the film - Aamir Khan’s performance. There aren’t many adjectives in my vocabulary to describe how brilliant Aamir Khan is through out the movie. Can’t believe he is our same old chocolate boy of Qayamat se Qayamat tak. He is one actor who emotes with his eyes and body language more than his dialogues. The pain on his face when he cant remember things during acute short-term memory loss, the anger on his face and the blood in his eyes as he takes on the baddies in the film. Many critics believe this is Aamir’s career-best performance as he plays both vulnerable and hard with elan.

Debutante Asin, is fresh. She looks beautiful on screen and does her bit with sincerity of a debutante although she is a big star down under in South India. She has a bright future in Bollywood. Jiah needs to add more effort on her dialogue delivery. She needs a better stylist too. Pradeep Rawat is brutally brilliant in his villanous role although it is a bit old fashioned in today’s time.

Just dont miss this film guys…Its a worth watch. I watched it for Aamir Khan more than anything else. It worked for me. A must-watch for all the Aamir Khan fans out there.

Rating: 4/5

What 2009 holds for our Bolly stars


Numerologist Sanjay B Jumaani predicts what 2009 holds for our top Bollywood stars and how their movies will work at the box-office.Check what he has to say about them:

Shah Rukh Khan
The Badshah of Bollywood may not have a great year health-wise. He’s in his 44th year, which adds up to 8, representing Saturn (Shani). Unfortunately, it doesn’t augur well for King Khan as 8 has not worked well for him in the past.

Hrithik Roshan
Hrithik is in his 35th year and will soon be 36. However, 9 is not one of his best numbers. In fact, 9 of Mars can make a person impulsive and accident-prone, so he better watch out instead of playing superhero! A very potent combination rules him, so he should avoid multi-starrers and take up work that has him in the lead. He and his father should make more films together as all their three films were huge hits.

Salman Khan
He is governed by number 9, the fiery Mars (Mangal), the planet of energy, which makes a person impetuous, accident-prone, stubborn and inflexible. His comeback vehicles – Tere Naam and Partner – add up to 9. His girlfriend Katrina’s destiny number is 9. She’s a water sign (Cancerian) and he’s an Earth sign, and these signs usually go well together. So, he should lie low this year as he could be subject to defamation, scandal and false accusations. In 2010, he’ll be 45, one of his best years, and marriage could be on the cards. But if he marries Katrina, she should brace against his fiery outbursts.

Saif Ali Khan
Saif is in his 39th year, adding to 3, which is Jupiter, planet of wealth. Though his girlfriend Kareena (a number 3) hasn’t married him yet, Saif can still expect to have a fortunate year, especially after his 40th birthday as 4 is one of his luckier numbers.

Akshay Kumar
The Khiladi will remain in his 42nd year till September 9 next year and it will be an eventful year. His name as well as the year 2008 adds to 28, which was also why it was so good for him. Chandni Chowk To China is expected to do well too, along with 8+10, which gives us 9 again.

Abhishek Bachchan
Junior AB is currently in his 33rd year and 6 is among his favoured numbers. However, on February 5, he’ll enter his 34th year (7), which is neither good nor bad for him. Delhi 6 is spelt so instead of Dilli 6 on our behest and adds to 6 too, so it should do him well. We’d always maintained that ABCL won’t do well under Big B as his numbers are not conducive to business; however, it stands a better chance under Abhishek.

Katrina Kaif
Katrina is a number 7, ruled by Neptune and the Moon, planets that endow imagination and creativity. She is doubly influenced by these planets as they govern Cancerians. The flipside is they can make her restless and moody. She’s now in her 25th year (7). So, this could be one of her best years.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Her name adds to 50 or 5, which is the same as AB Baby’s. So, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that she rules him! In Mani Ratnam’s Raavan, she can expect to get rave reviews, and maybe even outdo Abhishek. She can make a good brand ambassador for India. After she turns 37, her entry into politics could also not be ruled out. Aishwarya should try to focus on doing foreign films; Hollywood is a good option too.
What do you predicts for our stars folks?

Sanjay Leela Bhansali doesn’t need Pakistani actors


Sanjay Leela Bhansali was in news recently for secretly signing Pakistani actor Imran Abbas for his upcoming flick Heera Mandi, however he has dismissed the rumors. Read on.

You’ve quietly gone and signed Pakistani actor Imran Abbas for Heera Mandi?
So quietly that even I don’t know about it. I haven’t signed anyone called Imran Abbas. I’m not making Heera Mandi right now. It may happen much later. When it starts, we’ll think of the casting.

So have you met this Imran?
Moin Beg, writer of Heera Mandi wanted me to meet this actor. So I did, almost a year ago, and I immediately realised he wasn’t the actor I was looking for. The next thing I know, I’m supposed to be arranging this guy’s visa to India. What nonsense!

Why don’t you clarify the misconceptions?
Kuch to log kehenge, kehne do. I can’t bring myself to become the master of sound bytes. I’ve already decided whom to work with in my next project. And should I look at Pakistan for actors? We’ve very talented people in our own country.
This news has broken many hearts I guess, for aspiring Pakistani actors.

I’m a Perfectionist Like Aamir Khan: Asin


Debutante Asin who made her debut with superstar Aamir Khan in Ghajini says she had no problems matching up to Aamir’s perfectionism.

“People often call Aamir a perfectionist and a tough taskmaster, but I didn’t have any problem matching up to him because I’m also quite a workaholic. We gelled quite well as far as the demand of perfection was concerned. Even I like things to be the best,” Asin told IANS
Talking about working with Aamir she says, “Shooting with Aamir was great fun. He isn’t as serious as he is projected to be. He is highly dedicated to his work but is very cool and easy to work with.  He’s a simple person, very genuine and frank about his opinions despite having such a good stature in Bollywood,” said Asin.

Did she ever feel overshadowed by Aamir in the promos of the film? She says,”I have not felt overshadowed by Aamir’s publicity at all. Actually, I’m not used to all this really because we don’t have it in the south film industry. The marketing team for ‘Ghajini’ has its strategy to promote the film in the right manner. If Aamir is promoting the film in the north, I am doing it in the south.”
“Aamir has got a huge fan following and he is the highlight of the film. In fact, since a lot of people down south have seen the Tamil version of the film, they will now probably come to theatres just to watch Aamir.
“I have no issues about that as ‘Ghajini’ is the story of Sanjay Singhania, played by Aamir. So the fact that his presence is being highlighted is completely justified,” said Asin.
Asin says she is “excited but anxious” of how her “new audience” will react to her performance when “Ghajini” hits theatres worldwide.

We wish her goodluck for her career in Bollywood!

I’m accident prone says Katrina Kaif


Earlier this month Katrina Kaif suffered a nose injury thanks to Ranbir Kapoor’s tight slap. Her face swelled and her shooting had to be cancelled. This time she injured her leg while shooting for another flick De Dhana Dhan.

Unit members report that Katrina was doing an underwater sequence with Akshay Kumar when her foot got tangled under water.

“The more she tried to extricate herself the more her leg got tangled. She tried to scream for help, but because of the noise on the sets including the stunt co-ordinators who were shouting instructions to the entire cast, no one heard Katrina’s screams of pain,” a source told IANS.
“Akshay saw that Katrina was in trouble. He quickly swam to her and got her out of the tangle,” said the source.

Katrina’s leg was badly hurt. “It could’ve been worse,” said the source, “but tetanus shots and sedatives have eased her pain.”
