Sanjay Ramasamy (Aamir Khan) is a rich tycoon suffering from short term memory loss. This was due to a severe head trauma he received while trying to stop his girlfriend’s murder.
Sanjay’s amnesia lasts for 15 minutes at a time and he can’t remember events or incidents that happen during this period. As a result, Sanjay can now only live any sort of life by tattooing notes on himself and taking pictures to remind him of incidents that have happened.
His story is unravelled by a police officer (Riyaz Khan) hunting him down for several murders he commits while trying to find his girlfriend’s killer.
Sanjay’s story attracts the attention of psychology student Chitra (Jiah Khan), who stumbles upon Sanjay’s medical report during a college project. Chitra comes to know about Sanjay’s girlfriend, a model-turned-activist.
With the help of Chitra, Sanjay sets out on a revenge spree, searching for his girlfriend’s murderer in this psychological thriller.
Directed by AR Murugadoss, who also made the Tamil version in 2005, this Hindi remake sees Aamir Khan showcasing a beefy and muscled new look.
Ghajini has been shot in a Namibian desert and Cape Town in South Africa.
