On this episode of the Split Screen Podcast, Kathy Gibson from Access Bollywood joins Shah Shahid to discuss how the Hollywood cult hit 'Memento' (2000) was remade into Bollywood's 'Ghajini'. (2008)

SHOW NOTES:

Who is Christopher Nolan? [ http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0634240/?ref=fnalnm1 ]

How 'Memento' [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memento_(film) ] was made reflects the thought process of the main character.

The Director of 'Ghajini' [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghajini(2008film) ] in no way credits Nolan for 'Memento', instead attributes idea to coincidence.

Aamir Khan [ http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0451148/?ref=nvsr_1 ] grunts, a lot!

Why does every character in South Indian movies have super strength?!

Bollywood [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bollywood ] characters reflect a audience's desire of chasing perfection.

Ways in which 'Ghajini' improves upon 'Memento'.
