[GhaJini]


With a heavy heart, i went to watch Ghajini (Tamil), with some hope it will cheer me up..watch the movie trailer HERE


Ghajini..Surya's latest flick with different kind of story line...Asin looks stunning in this (although we do hope Jothika will appear along her real life beau, Surya :P)..Nayanthra, a gorgeous medical student (ah..do i see z000nie drooling??) who looks entirely different from her previous movies (Ayya & Chandramukhi)..surely a movie that Tamil speaking fans shouldn't miss..



Sanjay Ramasamy (Surya) suffers from short term memory loss after he was bashed up by the villains. All he can remembers is the incidence where his girlfriend, Kalpana (Asin) was murdered in front of his eyes (this is the saddest part of the movie), and he was hurt in the head.

He can remember the villain, whom he will be looking for fiercely in the second part of the movie..and of course, being a Kollywood production..we will be able to watch his victory over the villain(s) at the climax with help of Chitra (Nayanthra).


Alright, enough about the movie..the subject i really want to talk about is the core of the whole story: "SHORT TERM MEMORY LOSS".

In Ghajini, Sanjay will not be able to remember anything beyond 15mins, and he is well aware of that. So, within the 15mins, he will photograph anyone/any place/anything he thinks important and will use that photographs to identify them/the place/the things later..He jot down each and every important events that happens..He tattooed his body all information about the villian (as you can see in the picture below).



What will you do if you are suffering from short term memory loss? How you think it will affect your life? Will you be photographing people/places like Sanjay did? Or..do you have better ideas? Share them with me...

Its quite a difficult thing to deal with suffering from short term memory loss. One can easily go crazy repeating themselves and trying to think harder. Sanjay had a great idea to work with the sickness. Taking pictures in that short span and reusing them later sounds like an apt solution. I'd just follow my doc's advise and act accordingly if I were hit by such an illness, god forbid.

Keshi said...

awwwwww so u saw Ghajini!! I sooo wanted to see it and now that u gave the news it's out Im gonna go on a hunt for it - Cos I LUVVV SUUURYA ;-) he's mah ultimate cutey pie. aww that girl looks hot...me J now lol!


so it's a memory loss story again...I rem seeing anothr Tamil movie like that recently...this guy forgets everything after a blow to his head and he even forgets where he lived...it was a tragic story but worth watching.

Have u seen 50 First Dates? It's simlar where Drew Barrymore loses her memory after a car accident - it's a comedy but it was also a bit sad...


Well anyways getting back to ur questions...


**What will you do if you are suffering from short term memory loss?

I wud have to cope nah...so I will...


**How you think it will affect your life?

It will annoy me to the core but not that Im any different right now lol! Well on a serious note, I will sit and cry every 5mins I think...cos Im an impatient person by nature and if I have to deal with something like this, it would slowly kill my soul...


**Will you be photographing people/places like Sanjay did? Or..do you have better ideas?

If I had a purpose like Sanjay did, then I would. Else I would just live one day at a time...I would treat it like a challenge given to me by my creator and I will deal with it. I would do anything to survive and not make ppl run all over me...

Keshi.

ooooo this ones hard amu, I dunno what I would do.

But I do think what surya did was smart.

Arz000n said...

I think this is the same situation I saw in "50 first dates"

Loss of memory...

I want this badly..I want part of ma brain to lose some memories...which I dont want to carry with me :((

Is it possible?

What will you do if you are suffering from short term memory loss?
I just wish that people I love, ma parents are there along with me during those moments.

and yes...if I carry crush on someone...I wish that no matter how many times I go thru memoru loss...I still continue to have the crush on the same person over n over everytime in ma life. Hope ma heart dont suffer from memory loss..hehehe

I so wish to fall in luv with the same person, till I have ma last breath.

How you think it will affect your life?
It will...
it will really affect me a lot...coz I carry a huge bunch of "no-so-good" memories which I keep so that they remind me of not screwing up things if Im yet again in the same situation. Good memories are always there to cherish na...all da time :)
You just cant think of losing them...

Will you be photographing people/places like Sanjay did?
Hmmmm...
At times I wonder..is it possible to capture happiness by saying "say cheese"???
I dont know...
Bad part...I dont have any photographs of ma child hood...
even worst....they are clicked in the tiny brain above me. I just cant forget those memories...
I dont think I Will rely on photography...its just not me :)

Or..do you have better ideas?
I wrote them above am000nie piez :)

Hugzz to you and hope you had an awesome weekend.
Take care and keep smiling


(I wrote this post with drool all ova ma lappy...damn early morning I hate to clean up all this things. hehehe..)

Short Term Memory loss… this reminds me of the movie “Finding Nemo”…
If u have not seen it then must see… awesome movie…

I’ll store everything on my cell yaar…
Not to worry much…
But I won’t be able to tell lies in that case…
Coz telling lies and not getting caught requires a good memory…

@ dewdy

One can easily go crazy repeating themselves and trying to think harder.
True..i mean..15mins will fly off like 15secs by the time we try to recall what happened the previous 15mins!!

k000kie

aww...someone loves SURYA!!! kekeke..he looks hummm...you should see to appreciate!!!

this guy forgets everything after a blow to his head and he even forgets where he lived...
yea..memory loss story..but worth watching..its taken in a different approach..although i would like to have an opinion from a medical practioner on the truth in this memory loss syndrome..

aww..and seems like k000kie is all set for a 'memory loss' effect..based on her comment, i mean..lolz..

@ puneet

I’ll store everything on my cell yaar…

st000nie

southpaw said...

Honestly speaking, initially i was speechless to the question that how wud i deal if i was suffering from something like that. I even tried to imagine the ways he tried in the movie, but still in reality its a damn tricky situation, i wonder how people suffering from something like that must be dealing with their daily routine life. If i had to deal with something like that i wud use all my gadgets which i have to keep a track of the happenings and act accordingly, but yet its damn tricky.

Keshi said...

Amu I might even kill myself...u know wut I mean...if this kinda illness hit me all of a sudden (after living so long with a more than perfect memory), I might get so depressed and fade away...call me a coward but only I will know my demons...some ppl will handle it well but Im too weak for such challenges...

Keshi.

southpaw said...

Keshi, u can't escape by saying that the world can call u coward on that....don't u ever think something like that, will u????

Anbu said...

Havnt seen the movie but heard rave reviews from all my friends....

hmm....Tricky situation... Probably in my cell ( nokia 3230) like Amit and a digi- cam... and a notepad

Łóòň Ġãĺ said...

I think i commented before......anyway...howdy Amutha?? All well n all?

Cheerzz!

tulipspeaks said...

st000nie

i will just isolate myself
aww..st000nie..even know, i think i always see you alone in your room..are you suffering from any of these syndrome? :P just kidding yaar..

guy in the pic is ahem ahem ,,,, hot hot hotty ....
aha..i'm seeing an intense competition between st000nie and k000kie..who drools the most!! hehehehehe

=am000nie=

tulipspeaks said...

south

initially i was speechless to the question
hmm..thats why south took some time to answer this ques..

i wonder how people suffering from something like that must be dealing with their daily routine life.
exactly..i was thinking the same..really wondering if this illness is for real..again..anyone can explain the phenomena of memory loss here???

=am000nie=

tulipspeaks said...

k000kie

Amu I might even kill myself.
:O baby..u caught me by surprise with these words!!!

some ppl will handle it well but Im too weak for such challenges...
hmm..thinking deeply..even i'm weak for this challenge..
but not to the extend of killing myself..it will surely be a tormenting experience to live the life for 15mins each time..but taking your life for that k000kie??

=am000nie=

tulipspeaks said...

@ anbu

Havnt seen the movie but heard rave reviews from all my friends....
Two thumbs up for Ghajini..although till now, i still don't understand the meaning of the word "Ghajini"..

Probably in my cell ( nokia 3230) like Amit and a digi- cam...
ah..another 21st century man utilizing the technology to the max :P


@ cheesy
i'm fine here dear..how are you? hehehehe..no, i'm not ignoring you coz you are 18..in fact, i'm not ignoring you at all..why you feel that way?

Keshi said...

South...

**Keshi, u can't escape by saying that the world can call u coward on that....don't u ever think something like that, will u?

It's not an escape South...it will be am easy way out of the mess - sometimes death is better than living in such horrible conditons...dun u think so? Im being dead honest here...ppl may throw stones at me for saying that...but have thought abt this...why dogs r put down when they r suffering from a very serious and debilating illness...dogs also have something called feelings...


Amu u never know...cos only I will know how I feel if Im in that situation hai na? It's easy for ppl to look at someone like that and say...he u can go on etc etc...but when he's all alone in his battle, when he cant recal any damn thing, when life was normal b4 and hell right now, even death might look better...

Sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings here...

Keshi.

tulipspeaks said...

aww..okie..now i know why cheesy is upset with me..

sorry dear..guess i overlooked..i know its not a good excuse,but please pardon me this one time..i know you are soft-hearted, lovely, cutie pie..hehehe..okie..

short term memory loss just freaks me out.....
it freaks everyone out, nah..it is definitely not an option..well,i'm still looking for some one who can explain to me about amnesia..i mean the truth and the details about it..can you find anyone?

muuaxxx..muuaxxx
hugggsss..huggssss..
(twice for missing your comment earlier)...

=am000nie=

tulipspeaks said...

k000kie..

why dogs r put down when they r suffering from a very serious and debilating illness...dogs also have something called feelings...
hmm..i'm thinking over and over just about this sentence from morning..


but when he's all alone in his battle, when he cant recal any damn thing, when life was normal b4 and hell right now, even death might look better...
if he has forgotten everything about this past at one go, thats one thing..but to remember things for only 15mins will be very tough indeed..

btwn, did you manage to find the movie stills??

=am000nie=

Keshi said...

**did you manage to find the movie stills??

lol Amu I did yday itself...read my comment up there clearly :)

Keshi.

tulipspeaks said...

lolz...oh yea k000kie..u in intensive care after seeing Surya..still warded there?

=am000nie=

Keshi said...

Amu Im still at the ward..but now the doc is a hotty too I had to get transferred to the mortuary...lol!

Keshi.
