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.

Aamir sir, im your big time fan.
i just logged in at this site. i will like to say something about
ur ghajini.
sir it was a superb movie. i had watched tamil ghajini several
times. though the casting and all were great but there were many
flaws in it including the almost impossible fight scenes.
i liked ur GHAJINI very much. u put up a superb acting n yeah the
aggression in ur face was really spine chilling. superb acting
sir . and all the flaws were also edited to perfection in this
but sir there was one falw i feel to point out. in the last fight
sequence the way u entirely twisted a villain. that was wierd.
was it a tease to the tamil version . coz it ws really funny
rather than something serious. please avoid such things sir.
otherwise the entire thing was one heck of a movie. u rock. u r a
true perfectionist sir . u deserve that title.

Ghajini was absolutely amazing. I love your versatility as an
actor and this film really brought that through for me!

Also, you always have that smoldering gaze in every movie
regardless of the nature of your character, which

What would be interesting to know, though, is how you reply to
hate mail...that is, if you address haters at all?

I only ask because, let's face it, everybody's got haters,
despite (or esp. due to) the iconic status.

Anywho, hope you're getting some much-needed R & R!

Dear Sir,
It's about 'Ghajini'. When the movie was released i when to the
cinema excitedly to watch it. Sadly i've been told that the movie
show has been delayed, undated + unstated. 2nd time i go a week
after they have giving me the same reason. Frustrated, i just
wait for the DVD released. Fortunately my long wait paid with a
god, (same thing happen to me when i watch "Dil chahta Hai")
Shame...then i realised how the movie n ur character really
effect me. 100% credit for you. U just life up the character. We
cannot find 'Amir Khan' in it. It's only "Sanjay Singhania".
Congratulation sir!
