But every time I discover something new in it. Even today (16/05/2010) when I saw it again with my room mates. Every time it looks new to me. Christopher Nolan should have clinched Oscar for this.
Movie starts with the climax. Guy Pearce (Lead actor) meets a guy named Teddy, takes him to an old building, finishes him there. Roll back.. Guy Pearce starts from his Motel room and gets to know that his room is changed 2 days back and now again. Comes out to reception desk. Meets Teddy. Roll back..
Like this the entire movie unfolds in a roll back fashion. Along with a side story that goes straight explain how he got to the Motel room and his condition. His motive for killing and the incidents that made it to get executed forms the entire movie.
I hope everyone's aware that "Ghajni" is inspired from this movie. But "Ghajni" cant even be compared in a single shot with this masterpiece from Christopher Nolan (Director of "Batman Begins", "The Dark Knight", "The Prestige"...).The way the screen play is written and the execution of the movie are undoubtedly excellent. It looks like that he has taken the movie straight and presented it the other way.
But the point to note here is his talent to end every sequence with a suspense like you read a Dan Brown novel. Actually, this movie is the expansion of a short story by Christopher Nolan's brother. But this has noway stretched or spoiled the feel that short story would have given.
For those who wonder at the making of Ghajini, please give this a try and then decide...
