Ghajini: Let the countdown begin

These are exciting times for Aamir Khan loyalists. Aamir is going to be carrying the Olympics torch in New Delhi next week, which I hope happens. What with the proceedings in Paris, London, and San Francisco, who knows?

The more exciting bit of news is that the title of the original Tamil film, Ghajini, has been retained for this Hindi remake. Sensible, for everyone refers to it as Ghajini already anyway. And surely, Aamir Khan and his men (and women) have done their homework on the litigation behind this, for the last thing we need is another Sholay-Ram Gopal Verma Ki Aag type situation.

Of course, I am looking forward to the film, which releases around Eid/Diwali time this year (likely early October). And to listen to what Aamir and A.R. Rehman bring us again. The last three products of the duo: soundtracks to Rang De Basanti (2006), Mangal Pandey (2005), and Lagaan (2001). Watch them in action at A.R. Rahman's studio in this post.
