I don’t know why he did this, but I am disappointed. I liked him & his movies because he always showed some new creativity in them. Something that no one has seen yet in Indian cinema. Take his last 2 movies- one was Taare Zameen Par, a brilliant movie about children suffering from dyslexia. The movie had entertainment as well as awareness in it. And the other one was Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, although it was a just-another-love-story movie, but it had lots of things that made it different and unique. Although the movie was far away from reality, but what it showed,especially the songs, made us lost in its world for atleast 2 hours, if not more. And now, Ghajini. A typical south-indian hero-heroine-love-villain-revenge-action movie + a small “tadka” of Short Term Memory Loss. What I felt worse about is that the movie is a Scene-by-Scene copy of the tamil Ghajini. No new creativity or special effort was put my Aamir. Only the last few scenes were altered and that made the movie even more displeasing. Ofcourse, those who has not seen the tamil Ghajini will like this movie because the original story isn’t that bad, but for others this movie has nothing new in it. While watching that movie, I felt like watching a hindi-dubbed version of tamil Ghajini, with Aamir “ADOBEd” into every frame of that movie, instead of the origional hero. I was expecting much more from him. I thought atleast he would make the movie more realistic, the fight scenes would be more believable and not like rajnikant’s movies. But most of my expectations weren’t met. Anyways, I still wonder how this movie will fare in south India, where the tamil version is seen by almost every other person. What can I say except Best of Luck to him , after all, he put so many years of his into the “copy of Ghajini (2)” project. Lets hope for the Aamir to come out with a gem like TZP next!
