Synopsis: Medical student, Sunita, is driven by curiosity to study the case of Sanjay Singhania, who is afflicted with short-term memory loss. She runs into him, befriends him, and finds out that he is out to kill a seemingly benevolent citizen, Ghajini Dharmatma. After warning the latter of the impending danger, she subsequently comes across a number of diaries written by Sanjay and attempts to put together a jigsaw puzzle as to how a successful and wealthy businessman became a crazed recluse, who re-lives his past through tattoos on his body, notes and Polaroid photographs on the wall of his Hiranandani Complex flat, and his sole obsession of carrying out his deadly mission - little knowing that Ghajini and his goons are out to erase every bit of evidence he has gathered and thus ensure that he ends up remembering nothing.

Anti retrograde

Amnesia Short term memory loss

Hey, look at this one.

This one's my project.


Sir, but why?

Forget this case.

But it's such an interesting case.

Interesting yes,

but it's also a police case.


Sunita, you want me to

call your parents?

Fine, I won't take it up.

But as medical students,

we want to know.


That is Sanjay Singhania.

Hit on the head with an iron rod.

After the incident,

he lost his memory.

He is unable to remember anything now.

We call it short term memory loss.

He remembers events for

only about 15 minutes.


he forgets everything.

For example, he'd ask your name...

and in 15 minutes he will

have forgotten it.

He recalls only fragments of the incident.

But we can't say how much of it he remembers.

Regular tasks like eating,

drinking, driving, also his feelings...

lie embedded in his

sub-conscious mind.

How does he go about

his everyday routine?

How does a child perform

instructed tasks?

By committing to memory,

learning by rote.

Or, by jotting things

down in writing.

Likewise, he remembers

tasks by writing.

What was that incident?

Who assaulted him?

This, no one knows.

Unfortunately, he doesn't

even recall a face.

How can someone live on like this...

I wonder, what he's doing this moment...


Killed, just like Mangesh.

The second, this week.

Even if I've to search every street,

I'm going to get this one in 48 hours.

Find out who...

I must find him before the

police gets to him.

Where to?


Orchard Avenue.

Pin 400076. My street

We're in Orchard Avenue.

Take the next right.

Odyssey. It's a building on

your right. I want to go there.

My building

Whose address is it?


Kill him Find Ghajini

Find him Kill him


House Keys


Cell phone



Remove T shirt


Kalpana was killed

Who is Ghajini?


Check notes, Photos

Find Ghajini

Kill him

Day before yesterday. 10 am.

From Hiranandani to Andheri Station.

Yes, I sold that ticket.

What's written behind it?

He paid me with a five hundred note.

I didn't have change.

So I wrote it on the back.

He forgot to take the change...

hey, it must be him.


This one always forgets.

Sometimes he forgets to buy a ticket,

sometimes it's the change.

At times, he'll go on buying tickets.

He keeps on asking the

names of bus stops.

Can you recognise him?

- Why not... looks a strange sort,

keeps his head shaven,

has a long scar on the head.

Every morning at ten, he takes

the bus from Hiranandani.

It's nine.

We got an hour to get him. Come on.

Take camera

Bus 392

There he goes.


Damn it.

See you in the canteen after the lecture.

Excuse me... excuse me, sir...

Hi sir! I'm Sunita.

Sunita. Final year medical student.

You don't know me.

But I know you.

Can I talk to you for

two minutes... please?

As a medical student,

I want to know how...

Camera beeps

What's that?

My camera.

Why is it beeping?

It buzzes every 15 minutes.

So that I can take photos...

of important things, people...

to inscribe on them, to remember.

On photos?


What are you doing?

Making notes...

Tear it out, throw it away. Do it.

Can I see a photo?

My watchman

My doctor

My manager

My building

Hiranandani? Do you live there?


Can I ask...

how you got injured in the head.
