The film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is the Hindi adaptation of the Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump, which gave its actor Tom Hanks a distinct identity in world cinema.

But, it took him two years to narrate the script to his friend Aamir Khan and another 14 years for Aamir to make the film. Now, this film is the target of social media boycott litigants.

Cinematic World of History Events

A child from Punjab is photograph with his family in front of the Prime Minister’s residence in Delhi, and gunshots are heard from behind. In front of this child who came out with his mother to return to his village, his automation is burnt alive by sprinkling petrol. The mother is hiding in the shops with her child and picking up the pieces of glass that have fallen there, opens her son’s ‘Judi’ and cuts his hair. It is 1984’s Hindustan. Capturing the events of the past 50 years in the country through a love story, Aamir Khan’s new film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ has hit the target of social media ‘knights’ who are jealous of any Khan star’s film.

Atul Kulkarni’s Cultural Base

‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is the approved remake of the six Oscar-winning films Forrest Gump.’ But, those who have seen the original movie will find this film better than the original. Here Atul Kulkarni, who has adapted the movie according to the Indian culture and the country’s history, has shown great sensitivity. First, there is curiosity about the fact that the mother will sacrifice her ‘special’ child, Lal, who came to get admission to the regular school.

Seeing the initial dialogues, it is scary that, like in the original, the mother will not be able to ‘deal’ with her child. Still, the film continues how Atul Kulkarni has changed the scene with Indian sensibilities. The road seems to be opening up. Laal Singh Chaddha, who is called a little idiot kind of child, is like that. Understands less with the mind and more with the heart. Such people are still called ‘Buddhu.’

Aamir’s Authority was Shown at Every Step

Indira Gandhi’s assassination, Rajiv Gandhi at her funeral, Babri demolition, LK Advani’s Rath Yatra, Mumbai Bombings, Abu Salem, And there is the alleged love story of Monica Bedi and the slogan ‘Abki Baar Modi Sarkar’ written on the ghats of Varanasi.

The makers of these ‘projects’ do not care whether they will work. But, the film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is not a project. It is a cinema. The passion of a man who has taken the risk of projecting himself as a helpless person on screen. Indeed, Aamir is also a man of headlines; thoughtless statements are his enemy now. People tried to establish him as a marketing guru and marketing. But those who know Aamir closely also know how he throws himself into his work.

Miracle of Aamir’s Performance

It is this character that makes Lal as Laal Singh Chaddha.

Documentary Size of a Feature Film

The technical team of the film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is its life. The Bharat Darshan that Satyajit Pandey has done with his camera in this film while watching it many times gives a feeling like a documentary on Discovery Channel. The film, told through a conversation with the co-passengers of Laal Singh Chaddha on his way to Amritsar by train, initially asks for some patience. However, as soon as the film starts galloping after the interval, it cries several times until its climax. There is also applause for Hemanti Sarkar for this agile editing of the film. Amitabh Bhattacharya and Pritam have worked hard on the film’s music. But the film’s theme does not significantly contribute to the film’s development. And the film’s only weak link is also the film’s music.
