Aamir Khan unveiled his six-pack, veined hand, sticking-out ears look for his forthcoming film Ghajini, a remake of the tamil film – also called Ghajini – which was a remake of Christopher Nolan’s Memento.
Aamir has called Ghajini an out-and-out commercial film. If you have watched Memento and enjoyed it like I did, I shudder to think about its fate, with lots of melodrama and a few item numbers thrown in. I am assuming there will be melodrama; I haven’t watched the Tamil Ghajini, but Tamil movies are not known for their restraint or subtlety. They breathe melodrama and sentimentality. Aamir Khan’s next movie is 3 Idiots
Anyway, here is a photo of Aamir’s look in Ghajini, all muscled and taut.
Aamir Khan’s Ghajini look is pretty similar to actor Surya’s look in the Tamil Ghajini, which needless to say is similar to Guy Pearce’s look in Memento. Here is a picture of Surya’s look in Ghajini….
….and Guy Pearce’s look in Memento.
Like Guy Pearce, Aamir Khan too has numbers and other to-do lists tattooed on his body so he does not forget all of this since he suffers a short memory loss every 15 minutes.

After Shahrukh Khan in Om Shanti Om, it is Aamir Khan’s turn to take a shot at the six-pack look, which has been done to death by Salman Khan. The six-pack veteran scrutinizes the latest six-pack devotees and then solemnly pronounces judgment. Before Salman’s fallout with Shahrukh Khan, he had praised Shahrukh’s look for Om Shanti Om.
Aamir has said that Salman really liked his look in Ghajini.
Ghajini is directed by AR Murugadass who also directed the Tamil remake of Memento. Asin, who starred in the Tamil movie, is part of the Ghajini cast as well.
Ghajini will be released on December 25, 2008. Ghajini was initially scheduled to be released on Diwali, on October 28, 2008 (on Diwali) but was postponed due to Aamir’s leg injury.
Ghajini is faithful to the basic plot of Memento. In Memento, Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce) searches for one of the two men who broke into his house and raped and killed his wife. Leonard kills one of them but the other hits him on the head, as a result of which Leonard is affected by anterograde memory or short-term memory loss.
In Ghajini, the protagonist is a business tycoon, whose sets out to track his girlfriend’s killer. He too is hit on the head and suffers from short-term memory loss. So far so good, but what made Memento special was its treatment. I have no idea how Ghajini will pan out. I just hope its not just about Aamir Khan’s look, and I so hope there is NO romance between Aamir and Asin.
This worries me!
