The term STML stands for Short Term Memory Loss. In the Tamil movie, Ghajini, Surya has played such a character, who cannot remember things more than 15 minutes and has to rely on Polaroid photos and other tools to help him remember people and situations. He researched a lot for this role and even visited some people suffering for it to study and portray the character.

The movie has Surya playing Sanjay Ramaswamy, a young, successful businessman. Kalpana, played by Asin, in order to get out of a tight spot, claims that she and Sanjay are in love, which they are not. Infact, she doesn't even know how Sanjay looks like and has never met him. On his way to confront her after seeing the news splashed in the media, Sanjay falls for her, without letting her know that he is a bigshot and she not even knowing the truth, and thinking him to be a rastachap guy, still falls for him too.

In an unfortunate sequence of events, Kalpana is killed and Sanjay is hit on the head during the scuffle, which causes him to start suffering from STML. He then vows to take revenge on the people who did this and the rest of the movie is about how he manages to do it.

The 2 songs are:

1. Suttum Vizhi - Sriram Parthasarathy and Bombay Jayashree

2. Oru Malai - Karthik
