    Only a very few films manage to get that funny angle that brings in curiosity in the minds of the audiences right with its primary storyline. Ghajinikanth, starring Arya, definitely falls into that league of movies with its plot having everything for a fun entertainment feast. Have the makers come up with a film that has remained loyal to the prospects of the storyline? Well, read Ghajinikanth review to know more about the same.

    The main plot of Ghajinikanth revolves around a youngster named Rajinikanth. Everything is perfect for him, but the fact that he has some issues with his memory pulls his prospects down. More often, he faces a lot of backlashes because of this issue. Later, he falls in love with Vandhana and how he tries to cover up his memory issues form the major part of the story.

    As mentioned above, the plot of the film calls for a clean comedy entertainer with confusion elements. In fact, the film is the remake of the Telugu movie, which was a runaway success. Coming to Ghajinikanth, the screenplay of the film has been layered with a whole lot of situations that set the tone for a comedy entertainer. While some of them work, others fall flat with over-dependence on dialogues to convey the exact ideas. The cliched elements are largely recognizable and play spoilsport in many of the instances. For the fans of commercial movies, Ghajinikanth has umpteen number of references to their favourite stars, including Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Ajith, Suriya, etc.

    Santosh P Jayakumar's treatment for the film is OK and his attempt to move away from the making style of previous films tastes only a moderate success. Like he tries to get out of the cliched moments by playing down some of the sequences, but it doesn't work out all the time. The pacing of the first half of the film could have been swift, as at times one would feel that the entertainment element is missing. However, he stays close to the genre of the film for the entire running length without losing the focus.

    Arya does complete justice to his character and his comic timing is so good. Sayyesha, who plays the character Vandhana, has come up with a decent performance. Sathish evokes a good number of laughs. Karunakaran, Sampath Raj, Aadukalam Naren, etc., have done their part neatly.

    The songs are pretty average, but the background scores do the best job for this comedy entertainer. The cinematography works require due mention and, at the same time, editing could have been slightly better, especially in the second half.

    Ghajinikanth, despite having a storyline apt for an out-and-out entertainer, only manages to give the desirables at portions. However, the film is definitely a one-time watch for its genuinely comical elements.
