Both are crap....melodrama ...songs (unnecessary) ...and dumbed down revenge drama (no drama in the films per se)
The same filmaker has made both the films ..and he went around denying the fact that he had basically lifted up scenes/story/characters etc from memento and copy-pasted them.
It's a pity. Among the nolan fans here, the joke was that Nolan should go around with a tattoo on his chest saying "Murgadoss raped and murdered my film"
(P.S - Murgadoss being the director of the copies)
Murugadoss SUCKS. Every one of his movies is a dumbed down, melodramatic version of a Hollywood movie. There was this Telugu movie called Stalin by Murugadoss which is a ripoff of the concept behind Pay It Forward and a rehash of other Telugu films. Murugadoss and other film makers like him deserve to rot in hell for raping Indian cinema.
While we're on the subject of Ghajini, the acting sucked a great deal too. There was nothing to save that film (Though the songs are okay standalone, they don't fit with the mood of the movie).
