Aamir Khan's Ghajini is evoking mixed response. While some fans seem to be disappointed with the film in spite of the hype created around it,  others aren't ready to write it off just yet. 

A fan is peeved at the way Aamir is obsessed with his body "and so much in love with Asin that he was unable to think about anything else," he writes in his blog. "It is perhaps a coincidence that everyone else associated with the film also suffered from 'short term' loss of sense and sensibility. 

He doesn't even know what  the film title means. "After watching the film I am still not sure what Ghajini means but I think it means "a group of persons suffering from collective delusion," he said, tongue firmly in cheek.

"Ghajini is a waste of Aamir's perfectionistic approach, his talent. His 8-pack physic helps him to portray an on-screen animal that unfortunately falls pray(sic) to a pathetic script (and editor's Short Term Memory loss!)," said another blogger. This fan also isn't impressed with the plot of the film and says that "the film falls in the league of complete masala films like Shiva, Drohi, that sadly Aamir could not resist. The songs are well-
composed and 'miss-placed' as ever."

Not everyone is unhappy with the film. A blogger, who is an AR Rahman fan, is happy that "everyone in town including biggest banners of Indian film industry is just awestricken with Ghajini's tremendous opening."

"It's so fantastic to hear that Aamir's 'Ghajini' made a collection of Rs 35 crores  by advance booking on first day itself. None of the year's best super hits including Singh is King' and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi had leaped with such big collections," said the fan.

Blogger Deepak seems to have  taken a middle-path saying "it is not a great movie, but it is not a bad movie."
According to him, Aamir Khan does justice to his role.  Asin was probably better in the Tamil version, but doesn't give any reason to complain in the Hindi version too." He, however, complains about A R Rahman's music which "seemed uninspired."

Karan, in his blog informs us that a PC game, named Ghajini The Game, featuring Aamir Khan, is ready to hit the market. Earlier the video game was scheduled to hit the market a month before the Ghajini release.
