GHAJINI and The angst of the passionate lover

Love and passion are two sides of the same coin and when one is spurned in love then the same is expressed through the form of poetic oeuvres, however if one is slighted in love, or the lover is snatched away or the lover does not return the overtures, then the love gravitates to the realm of seething revenge. The gravitation to revenge has a psychological underpinning, where the emotions of the heart rule the sanity of the head, there is a continuous forward and backward play of the events in a sequential manner and the revenge in one form or other is looked upon as the solution for expression of the defeat. GHAJINI seems to be one more addition in this genre of films which Indian cinema started experimenting with when the era of rose tinted romance and fait–accompli of being spurned in love gave way to taking revenge for the defeat. GHAJINI is a bold step forward, as the narration of the event, which has turned the character into a revenge–seeking machine, is engraved all over the body in the form of tattoos and it continues to smolder the latent anger.

Among the genre of this kind of films the prominent ones include:



DARR: This Shah Rukh Khan starrer further accentuated the negative portrayal of the hero in a film, and Shah Rukh seemed to carry off from where he left in BAAZIGAR. It would not be out of place to mention that Aamir, who has always been competing with themes with Shah Rukh, may have tried to do one up on him with GHAJINI.
