Ghajini is a 2008 Indian Hindi-language action thriller film written and directed by A. R. Murugadoss and produced by Allu Aravind, Tagore Madhu and Madhu Mantena. A remake of Murugadoss’s own 2005 Tamil film of the same name starring Suriya and Asin, which in turn was reported to be inspired by the 2000 film Memento, it stars Aamir Khan, Asin (who reprises her role in the Tamil original, thus making her Bollywood debut), Jiah Khan and Pradeep Rawat in lead roles, with Tinnu Anand, Sunil Grover, Khalid Siddiqui and Riyaz Khan in supporting roles. The score and soundtrack were composed by A. R. Rahman, while Aamir co-wrote an altered climax.
Set in Mumbai, Ghajini follows the story of Sanjay Singhania, a businessman who develops anterograde amnesia following a violent encounter in which his love interest, a model named Kalpana, was killed. He tries to avenge the murder, committed by the eponymous gangster-turned-public figure, with the aid of photographs from a Polaroid Instant camera and permanent tattoos on his body.
Ghajini became the highest-grossing Indian film of 2008, and the first Bollywood film to cross the ₹100 crore mark domestically, creating the 100 Crore Club. Ghajini’s paid preview collections were ₹ 27 million. On release, it became the highest-grossing Indian film of all time, until it was surpassed by Aamir’s next, 3 idiots (2009), the following year. Aamir’s character was featured in a 3D video game titled Ghajini – The Game, which is based on the film.
