Ghajini is an action packed suspense thriller. Amir Khan has once again delivered a very strong performance. The movie is very well directed. The action is superb. Amir’s character is very strong and I must say his physique really suited his character. The back and forth transition in the movie has been very well done. From start to climax this movie is awesome. Ghajini will keep you on the edge of your seats. The comedy has been blended in very well and is not just thrown at you. The movie is serious yet light and has action at the same time. The Romance too is pretty well placed. Overall if you like suspense thrillers and don’t want to watch yet another bollywood luvy duvy movie, then this is the movie to go see. It has blockbuster written all over it.

While this movie is well made, it is too violent for children. I suggest you take no child under the age of 13 to this movie. The film contains strong themes of violence as well as abuse. With that in mind, its a good movie if you can look past the violence; there's no hidden meaning behind its making or any symbolism what so ever. This is just a commercial popcorn movie like all the rest. Beware though, just because the film has no rating does not make it suitable for children.

Definitely not your run-of the mill Bollywood movie. Too much violence for young kids but excellent acting and directions. Worth every cent of my ten bucks

Superb performance by Aamir Khan. He does both the romantic and the psychotic roles in the same movie. Hard to image this is the same person.
A little intense though, definitely do not take kids to this movie.

If you expect the movie to anyway closely match the excellence of English version Memento, you will be disappointed. On the other hand, if you switch off the part of your brian that complains about cliche and lack of logic and you want to dive in to somewhat loose fantasy love story, you could enjoy this flick. If you try to find loose ends, well..you don't have to try :) Asin looks terrific in the movie and also adds lot of energy to movie which makes it partly interesting. Although there are scenes where her over-acting or lack of acting is clearly visible.
