Ghajini: All that you should know about Aamir Khan’s Blockbuster movie

by Ratan Srivastava

Allu Aravind, Tagore Madhu, and Madhu Mantena co-produced Ghajini, a 2008 Indian Bollywood action drama movie written and directed by A. R. Murugadoss. Murugadoss’ original 2005 Tamil movie with the same name, which has been influenced by that of the 2000 movie Memento as well as the 1951 British picture Happy Go Lovely, is remade here. It features Aamir Khan, Asin, Jiah Khan, Pradeep Rawat, Tinnu Anand, Sunil Grover, Khalid Siddiqui, as well as Riyaz Khan.  A. R. Rahman scored the music and soundtrack, as well as Aamir co-wrote a rewritten climax.

When Murugadoss saw Memento, he had already written half of the novel and said that he was only using the character because of his short-term memory loss. A businessman with anterograde amnesia sets out to revenge his lover using images taken with such a Polaroid Instant camera as well as permanent tattoos on his body inside the movie.

Ghajini was released in theatres on December 25, 2008, and then became the highest-grossing Indian film of the year, as well as the first Bollywood movie to make $100 million domestically, establishing the 100 Crore Club. The paid preview collections for Ghajini totalled $27 million.

It moved to become the highest-grossing Bollywood movie of all time until it had been eclipsed the subsequent year through Aamir Khan’s 3 idiots (2009) and subsequently by Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express (2013). Aamir’s role was included in the Ghajini – The Game, a 3D video game based on the movie. Suriya, who portrayed the protagonist inside the Tamil version, praised the film and thought it was an improvement out over the original.

With Ghajini, Khan discovered the power of his own, and even with movies such as 3 Idiots (2009), Dhoom 3 (2013), PK (2014), as well as Dangal, he enabled the industry to set new business records. Ghajini was released on December 25, 2008, with such an estimated 1,500 prints globally, included 1,200 in India, making it the leading Bollywood release there at the time. Domestic rights were acquired for 530 million to Geetha Arts, while satellite, foreign, as well as home media rights were sold for just a total of 400 million, shattering Shah Rukh Khan’s Om Shanti Om’s record of 730 million.

Reliance Entertainment, the movie’s international distributor, distributed 300 copies in 22 countries, notably 112 prints inside the United States and Canada, 65 prints in the United Kingdom, and 36 prints in the United Arab Emirates.

A.R. Rahman composed six songs for the movie, two of which are remixes, while Prasoon Joshi wrote the lyrics.
