'Remember Ghajini' - that's the tagline of this new Aamir Khan movie and yes, the audience will definitely remember this movie. Looks like Aamir wants to do a Rajnikanth in Bollywood. He completely reverses his role from last year's "Tare Zameen Par" and now we have a movie based on the villain and not the hero.

What if your lover is killed, you can't remember anything at all and whatever you can remember, you lose again every 15 minutes? You have to keep reminding yourself of what is going on with whatever sources you have around you. This is the story of Sanjay Singhania.

If Salman has been taking off his top to show his abs and Shahrukh has been pulling off the same in "Om Shanti Om", why should Aamir be left behind? This time, Aamir not only flaunts his abs off well but also adds tattoos. Bravo to Aamir for trying something different. Not only that, Aamir Khan gives yet another powerful performance. If an Indian "Terminator" movie were to be made, they should get some advice from Aamir!

Newcomer actress Asin makes an entry into Bollywood and is a delightful watch as well. Her ravishing looks are an eye candy and with a bubbly character, she makes a powerful debut. Jiah Khan on the other hand, must be one lucky girl. After wooing Amitabh Bachan in her first movie last year, she now shares screen space with Aamir Khan. Her character is rather wasted but overall, her acting was decent.

The plot, which constantly shifts between past and future, will keep audience guessing till the end if the villain would meet justice. If the audience does not get the adrenalin rush from the story, the sound effects will definitely do the job. As for the cinematography, RK Chandran does some wonderful work too. Some of the dark sequences in the film are particularly interesting.

The creepy soundtrack is forgivable, on account of the nature of the movie. Some of the tracks might be forgotten easily but the title track will keep audience humming to it at least.
