Aamir Khan, the actor, has the habit of springing surprises. In fact, it would be no exaggeration to say that the film celebrates the return of the commercial potboiler. This formula works!
Besides Aamir, the other loveable factor about the movie is Asin, who makes her Hindi film debut with Ghajini. She breezes her way through the role of Kalpana, with a spontaneity and simplicity which is quite captivating. She more than manages to hold her own opposite Aamir and excels in the scene when she is hounded by the goons. As for the rest of the cast, Jiah Khan as the helpful medical student and Rawat as Ghajini are just about competent.
