After Aamir Khan a long gap of almost 4 years, Aamir is back with the official remake of the 1994 American classic movie 'Forrest Gump'. Laal Singh Chaddha is a long-awaited film for the audience and Aamir Khan fans and the film was released in theaters today. Let's go into a detailed review to see if this movie can be seen in theaters and if is it worth waiting 4 years for its release.
Laal Singh Chaddha is born with a low IQ, due to a problem with his spine, he has to walk with the help of leg braces. A girl named Roopa moves in friendship with him and encourages him in everything. Laal, who cannot walk properly, dares to run in the face of ridicule from his schoolmates. From then on, Laal Singh runs and participates in sports, receives a medal of honor from the President of India, and even joins the Indian Army, where he meets Balaraj Bodi.
As mentioned earlier, the film is an official adaptation of 1994 classic 'Forrest Gump'. Actor Atul Kulkarni has made changes for the Indian adaptation and barring some dialogues the change in nativity and scenes is very good. The makers have tried their best to stick to the original without disturbing the spirit of the story and they have succeeded in hooking the audience with emotions.
Aamir Khan is known as a perfectionist in the Indian film industry, he is devoted to every role he plays in movies. He will surprise you with his look and physique makeover, but his performance will remind you of his character from the movie PK. But Aamir has acted brilliantly in emotional scenes. Kareena Kapoor is seen in very few projects on screen these days and she does very well with Aamir in some emotional scenes. Our Telugu actor Akkineni Naga Chaitanya impresses us with his acting in the role of Balaraju, who looks simple. Mona Singh grabs our attention with her performance as the mother. All the other actors played their roles well.
Technically the movie is good in all departments. Pritam's music is the main attraction of the movie. The songs are lovely and the background music adds the necessary emotion to the scenes. Sethu's cinematography is to be commended, especially for the war episodes and some beautiful landscape shots. Director Advait Chandan has done a good job recreating the magic spread by Forrest Gump.
Finally, Laal Singh Chaddha is good, the feel of the original movie has been made with good changes.
