Laal Singh Chaddha Review: After a long time, superstar Aamir Khan has come to the screen, so he must be on the silver screen. As a tribute to Forrest Gump, the film should be given a shot. The public has a long weekend to enjoy the entertainment.
Lal Singh Chaddha is the Hindi adaptation of the cult film Forrest Gump. It took Aamir Khan more than ten years to get the rights to the film, but the screenplay of the film was ready in just 14 days. Movies that are recreated are often compared to the originals. It is clear that critics will compare Lal Singh Chaddha to Forrest Gump and Aamir to Tom Hanks. In that sense, Laal Singh Chaddha is one of the best movies to date.
The story of the film belongs to Lal Singh Chaddha (Aamir Khan), who lives in a town outside the city of Pathankoth, who is mentally sluggish and walks due to weak legs using external fixation. Lal’s mother (Mona Singh) teaches him from childhood that he is also like normal children and that there is no shortage of him. Lal is bullied at school and meets Roopa (Kareena Kapoor Khan), who becomes his childhood sweetheart. Now Lal and Roopa’s journey has been shown from 1976 to 2018. Meanwhile, Lal leaves Punjab and goes to university in Delhi, death of Indira Gandhi, emergency situation, Kargil war, Mumbai riots, BJP’s arrival after the government of the Congress, 26/11 terror attack , Anna Hazare’s fast and Swachh The story of the film moves forward and determines the journey of all of them, the Bharat Abhiyan.
After making the critically acclaimed film Secret Superstar, Advait Chandan has taken on the responsibility of filming an iconic film like Forrest Gump. Many loopholes are seen as the story of the film is threaded. The first reason is that the film is too long, which makes it seem difficult to engage the audience in the second half. The second flaw is in the screenplay of the film, which is provided by actor and writer Atul Kulkarni. In the process of covering everything in the story, it doesn’t reach any particular message. The story failed to captivate the audience, in fact you get so caught up in understanding the story that the emotional bond with the characters is not created. The bond with the characters makes the film strong, in which the director and writer are missing. In some scenes, such as the death of Bala (Naga Chaitanya), Lal’s running, romance with Roopa, cutting Lal’s hair during the riots to hide his identity, you try to stir the emotion, but it seems only an attempt. Laal’s youth track with Mona Singh is beautifully rendered. Mother-son emotional bonding is good. How much the general mass audience understands the essence of the film is questionable.
The film looks beautiful on camera. Each frame is beautifully decorated. The cinematographer of the movie Satyajit Pandey has done his job with complete honesty. When you watch the movie from a cinematic point of view on the big screen, it feels good. The film travels across the country, from the narrow streets of Mumbai, the mustard fields of Punjab, the campus of Delhi, the plains of Ladakh to the sea of Kerala. The editing of the film was the downside. If Hemanti Sarkar had wanted it, she could have put this 2 hour and 39 minute film on the editing table. The film takes place between the time of the 70s to 2018. In such a situation, the character had to be shown in different age stages, quite a lot of work has been done on his aging.
Aamir Khan, the central character of the film, is known for his perfection, but his perfection is not visible on this performance of Aamir. It disappoints to mock a strong actor like Aamir with a character. In some places, Aamir’s expressions are over. He seems to have failed in the seriousness with which Aamir was expected to play the mentally challenged character. In My Name is Khan, Shahrukh Khan also took on the challenge of a similar character and he played it effortlessly, but in this screen, Aamir seems to lack the character’s sensitivity. In many places, Aamir is starting to think about PK. In the final scene, Aamir can’t continue his expression, which seems to be missing. Kareena Kapoor has done a decent job in the character of Roopa. It is said that her character is a reference to the life of Monica Bedi. Kareena looks beautiful in the movie. Mona Singh was the life of this film, the chart of her acting has been increasing throughout the film. Mona’s acting as an independent mother has only strengthened the character.
Superstar Aamir Khan is coming to the silver screen after a long time, so he has to be seen on the silver screen. As a tribute to Forrest Gump, the film should be given a shot. The public has a long weekend to enjoy the entertainment. Most importantly, if you think the movie will come out on OTT after a few days, you might have to wait 6 months for it, so go to the theater and enjoy it.
