Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan-starrer Laal Singh Chaddha has finally released in theatres on Thursday despite boycott the film controversy.
Laal Singh Chaddha marks the third collaboration between Aamir and Kareena after Rajkumar Hirani-directorial 3 Idiots and Reema Kagtiâ€™s Talaash: The Answer Within.
The official Hindi remake of Academy Award-winning Forrest Gump starring Tom Hanks has received mixed reviews from fans who watched the First Day First Show of Laal Singh Chaddha.
The Advait Chandan directorial also marks Naga Chaitanyaâ€™s debut in Bollywood.
Laal Singh Chaddha (Aamir Khan) is born in 1971 to Gurpreet (Mona Singh). She is separated from her husband and raises Laal alone in the village of Karoli near Pathankot, Punjab.
The biggest achievement of the writer is that the story has been adapted beautifully however, the film runs out of fuel midway, and lacks a captivating screenplay to enthrall you in the second half goes downhill. Overall the movie lack fire.
Atul Kulkarni’s dialogues (additional Punjabi dialogues by Rana Ranbir) are sweet and simple.
Advait Chandan’s direction is neat. The way he connects one track of the film to another is seamless and many scenes stand out and are well executed.
The hindi adaptation is longer than FORREST GUMP by nearly 22 minutes and one can feel that in the second half. The romantic track is cute but itâ€™s not convincing.
Unlike Forrest, we meet Laal on a train, on his way to meet Rupa (Kareena Kapoor Khan). The camera pans up from his dirty shoes to his face. A woman lugs her bag in and occupies the seat in front of him. Laal barely looks at her, and instead, digs into a box of golgappas he is carrying for Rupa.
For the most part, director Advait Chandan’s Laal Singh Chaddha remains faithful to the original material.
