Yes Ghajini is Releasing.   

Ghajini is finally releasing as per schedule on 25th Dec, and some theatres are having paid previews this evening.

The last 24 hours have been most traumatic. In fact yesterday I had written a post which I was just about to uplink when I heard about the problem, and then I didn't post it. Am putting it below. Am emotionally totally drained. Just going to wait for your response now.


Prenatal Depression.

Just before any of my films release I go into pendulum mode. One sec I feel very optimistic about the film and the next Iím sure no oneís going to like it. I lose my smile my appetite, my sleep. On the whole I am listless and walk around like a zombie. VVC (Vidhu Vinod Chopra), who was talking to me yesterday, accurately described it as Prenatal Depression. The film is about to be delivered and will be out of our systems so to speak. Then it will have a life of its own which we have absolutely no control over.

Sigh. It too tough, making films.

All the 2 years of planning, preparation, creative discussions, the struggle to shoot the film and the sleepless nights of post production ultimately culminate in a 3 hour experience in the darkness of a cinema hall.

This time around it is a remake of a Tamil film so I am especially anxious. Ghajini was a huge success in the South and Surya had done an excellent job in the original. I hope that I have been able to do justice to the film. Am especially awaiting Suryaís response as he was the one who went out of his way to convince me that I suit the role.

Am guilty of not being able to read the responses for my last post this time around, as I have been just too busy. In fact the last couple weeks have been too hectic and as a result of the exhaustion and excitement Iím down with fever so am lying in bed as I write this.
While the film releases on the 25th all over I believe in some Cinemas it actually opens for Paid Previews on the evening of 24th. So I will be eagerly awaiting your response 24th evening onwards. Wont miss a single post.

At this time, irrespective of the fate of the film, I want to acknowledge and introduce to you the various people who have worked behind the scenes on this film. The presenter Arvind Garu, who has been a great support to the entire team and has had complete faith in Murgadoss and his abilities. Also a man of great wisdom and maturity. Both Tagore Madhu and Madhu Mantena who have worked tirelessly to bring the film onto screen in the best possible way. Each with their individual strengths have been the best producers that this film could have ever asked for or got. Ravi K Chandran who has taken the film to another level with his visual excellence. Rasul who has impressed me the most with his amazing sound design. He has been among the most committed technicians I have ever worked with. The kind of detail and layering I have seen him get into is truly heartwarming, and the pains he has taken to satisfy the director are inspiring for any film person. Anthony who has truly astounded me with his editing abilities and has been a learning experience to work with. Peter Hines who has shocked me with his mad energy and acute understanding of the character and situation when he is composing for action. Stunt Shiva, who stepped in when Peter was unable to be with us because of the change in schedule because of my injury, worked with an enthusiasm unseen in clash work. Sunil, who quietly and tirelessly went about his work in Production Design to give the film the unique look that it requires. Arjun and Avan who has never failed to satisfy me in my endeavor to look the character. Rahul Nanda, who has managed to capture the pain and romance of the film in one single image. Anup Dev, who has patiently and with a lot of care given the final touches to the film. Piyush Misra, who handled the tough job of adapting the dialogues into Hindi. Nabeel Abbas, whose advice into the promotions and marketing of the film as a consultant were extremely helpful. Shilpa and Prabhat, who are extremely insightful and acute with their expertise in promotion have taken the film to the heights that it deserves. Priti and Aman, whose marketing abilities have given the film the scale and depth that it deserves. And lastly and most importantly Murugadoss. To make a film is very difficult, to make a film which connects with the audience is even more difficult, and to REMAKE a film which has connected big time with an audience with the same enthusiasm is most rare. Working with fresh enthusiasm, crystal clear thinking and an almost childlike excitement Murugadoss has breathed like into the film. He is an absolute pleasure and privilege to work with. How much I have learnt from him.

At the risk of sounding very presumptuous and patronizing I humbly thank all of you for the great time you gave me.

And now the time to test the pudding has arrived.

Hi Amir,
You have done a fantabulous job in Ghajini. I love the end scene
when you touch the leg impression. Whenever I listen to "kaise
mujhe tum..." i get goose bums.
Its an amazing movie...and really good job done by you....Well
I am eagerly waiting for you upcoming movie 3 Idiots.

hello sir,watched GHAJINI sometime back,but something was
missing,u have this uncanny ability to wear ur characters over
the years,that is what had made u a grt performer,but in ghajini
I found it missing,u tend to connect with the audience within 2,3
scenes in any film,it didnt happen through the entire lenght of
the film,but over all not a bad film. good luck sir in future
endeavours. NACHIKET

Hello Sir, Couldn't find a separate post about your bodybuilding,
so iam commenting here. I must say that you worked damn hard for
your physique, even i've been working our for past 4 yrs, did you
really wrkout for 3 hours in a day? Actually it didn't make
sense, cz wrking out for 3 hrs doesnt do any good, infact it
results in catabolism. Anyways, u achieved what majority can even
dream of, so full respect for you. God Bless

Its now one of my favourite films. I got it on DVD from HMV last
month and I've watched it about 6 times now.
I keep watching the DVD extras because I'm doing my first film
this year.
I liked the "body in the making" thingy, I've got about 3 months
to train up for my film.

Great film mate.

GHAJINI was great,except for some glitches with the action
scenes,still the action was good and i wouldnt mind if it werent
you doing it,but keeping in mind about YOU doing it,i would say
it was not PUT TO PERFECTION..that head twisting part was just
absurd,and though all the thugs not having a gun makes room for
some hand to hand it is not entirely believable,again i say,these
might be minor,but i dont expect even these from YOU.
those apart,the movie was really great,the level of aggression u
put in the character was amazing and again the pain and the sense
of loss u portrayed was mindblowing,overall I REALLY LIKED IT
(watched 4x)
