A film written and directed by Murugadoss – one of the leading directors of Tamil Nadu – will release simultaneously in 22 countries on December 25th. Yes, we are talking about the release of Ghajini (Hindi). There is no doubt Murugadoss is one of the leading directors of the nation after the release of Aamir-Khan’s Ghajini. The director has already started getting offers from many Bollywood bigwigs!
Reliance BIG is releasing Ghajini worldwide and the following figures will give you an idea as to how big this film is: It releases with 65 prints in UK and 112 prints in Canada and USA! People are very curious about this film, as it is has a fresh storyline which is its strength. Though it is about revenge and memory loss, this refined film from Murugadoss does not rely on the filmi way of recovering hero’s memory – the “diamond cuts diamond” method, where hero loses his memory in an accident and gains it back in another similar accident! Rather, it has a pragmatic approach based on good research. You will be moved by the scenes where the protagonist tries to regain his identity, intrigued by the methods he uses, and how he avenges his girlfriend’s death. The absolutely beautiful screenplay attracted everyone’s attention and made Murugadoss a popular name in the Bollywood circuit.
Moreover, method actor Aamir Khan’s dedication has added more value to this film as does Asin’s beauty. She brings in a lot of freshness into the film and has an exotic aura like other famous Southern heroines such as Sridevi of the 90s or Vyjayanthimala Bali of the black-and-white era!
Kollywood fans are awaiting the release of this film with more eagerness than their Bollywood counterparts, for this is their beloved director Murugadoss and Asin’s first step towards Bollywood glory!
