International Reviews Of Laal Singh Chaddha From West Out, Hails Aamir Khan Starrer As Masterpiece

The film will hit the Indian theaters on August 11.

Laal Singh Chaddha, directed by Aamir Khan, has received positive initial reviews from a few renowned international critics. It is an adaption of Forrest Gump, the six-time Academy Award winner directed by Robert Zemeckis. The 1994 movie, which also starred Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson, and Sally Field, was directed by actor Tom Hanks.

Indie Wire’s Proma Khosla felt that the Advait Chandan directorial “stands on its own” despite being a remake of a Hollywood classic. In her review, she wrote, “Instead of a box of chocolates or the obvious Indian equivalent, the film takes things a step further, adding strong depth and resonance to what could otherwise have been an unremarkable adaptation.” She added, “Laal Singh Chaddha measures its emotional beats tactically, deploying poignant punches sporadically throughout.”

Fred Topel of United Press International is also impressed with the adaptation as he mentioned in his review, “Laal Singh Chaddha is faithful to Forrest Gump from the floating feather to the plot structure. Since the history is less vital to the narrative, it gives the story itself more weight, with some new thematic context.”

Laal Singh Chaddha has been written by Atul Kulkarni. The film will hit the Indian theaters on August 11.
