Aamir Khan, known as Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood, is making a comeback on screen after a long time. Lal Singh Chadha was mired in controversies even before its release, but Aamir Khan’s fans were eager to watch the film. How is this Aamir-Kareena movie? Read the review.
It takes a while for Lal Singh Chadha (Aamir Khan) to understand anything, but he is optimistic. A question perplexes Lal Singh Chadha – should a man draw the line of his own destiny or follow the direction of the wind like a feather? Lal Singh tries to find answers to these questions in Advet Chandan’s film. It is worth mentioning that this film is the official Hindi remake of the 1994 Oscar winning film Forrest Gump. Tom Hanks played the lead role in Forrest Gump.
All the elements depicted in Forrest Gump, love, life, honesty, luck, you will find in Lal Singh Chadha. One of the differences between Forrest Gump and Lal Singh Chadha is that in a Hollywood film you are shown everything casually, while in Lal Singh Chadha it is given a Bollywood touch. Sometimes you will feel that Aamir Khan’s body language is similar to that of PK. Dialogues are used here where in the original film the talk is shown in silence. Although the film has been tailored for the Indian audience, the makers have managed to retain the heart of the original film. Lal Singh Chadha’s world is like a forest.
Adapting a classic and popular film like Forrest Gump is no easy task. If you have seen the movie Forrest Gump, you will know that the flow of the film is not straight, Forrest goes through different camps. He goes through many different experiences in life, but his approach to life is very ordinary and innocent. Lal Singh Chadha also tries to find answers to his questions in his own life. He tells his life story while traveling by train from Pathankot to Chandigarh. A strict mother (Mona Singh), childhood crush Rupa (Kareena Kapoor Khan), getting rich suddenly, participating in a war, making new friends (Naga Chaitanya as Bala and Manav Vij Muhammad), facing death and running away from pain. .
Atul Kulkarni’s screenplay is a confluence of fact and imagination. He is telling a fictional story in the socio-political and cultural context of India. In Forrest Gump, life is compared to chocolate, using panipuri as a metaphor. Being an Indian film, the Ram Rath Yatra, Operation Blue Star, 1975 Emergency, Kargil War, Bombay Bomb Blast, the subsequent riots, all these events are included here. Atul Kulkarni has done this difficult task very well.
Amitabh Bhattacharya has also written the songs of the film very well. The opening track Kahani of the film is enough to familiarize you with the film. The lyrics are also very ironic. Now if we talk about Aamir Khan, Aamir Khan has a peculiarity in his choice of films. He prefers a film related to a particular subject, issue. Even though there are talks of boycotting the film, Aamir Khan has successfully given a message in the film that – humanity is more important than religion. Aamir has done the role that Tom Hanks played at the age of 30 at the age of 50.
A lot of effort has been put into making Lal Singh Chadha’s character natural, but in some scenes he seems a bit ‘extra’. The constant use of pauses, hmmm, in dialogue can often seem fake. Kareena Kapoor has easily done the things that would shake Aamir Khan’s performance. The character of Rupa has been played in a wonderful manner. This character was Jenny in Forrest Gump. He has maintained a tremendous balance in acting. Mona Singh has done enough justice to the character. Apart from this, Manav Vij’s character is something you will remember for a long time.
The film has been shot in various parts of India. The political situation in India is also well depicted in the film. You can watch this movie with family. Not only this, Kamini Kaushal’s special role and Shah Rukh Khan’s cameo will also make you happy.
