Laal Singh Chaddha is a 2022 Indian Hindi-language comedy-drama film directed by Advait Chandan from a screenplay by Eric Roth and Atul Kulkarni. Produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Viacom18 Studios, it is a remake of the 1994 American film Forrest Gump which itself is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Winston Groom.[4] The film stars Aamir Khan as the title character alongside Kareena Kapoor, Naga Chaitanya (in his Hindi film debut) and Mona Singh.[5]

The adaptation of Forrest Gump underwent a series of changes over a period of two decades, with Kulkarni spending the first ten years adapting the script, and another ten years purchasing the remake rights.[6] Aamir Khan bought the rights of the film in early 2018 with the help of Los Angeles-based producer and director Radhika Chaudhari and announced the film officially on 14 March 2019, with its title.[7] The film's score is by Tanuj Tiku, while its original songs are composed by Pritam and their lyrics are written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.[8]

Laal Singh Chaddha has been filmed in more than 100 Indian locations.[9] Principal photography began in October 2019 and concluded in September 2021, after multiple delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[10] The film was initially scheduled for cinema release during multiple dates in 2020–2022, but kept getting delayed due to the production halt caused by the pandemic, and was theatrically released worldwide on 11 August 2022, coinciding with Raksha Bandhan and Independence Day.[11] It opened to mixed reviews with criticism for Khan's performance. Against its ₹180 crore budget, the film generated a worldwide revenue of less than ₹90 crore in its first week and was thus declared a box office bomb,[12] although, it became the highest-grossing Hindi film of 2022 at international box office, earning more than Gangubai Kathiawadi and The Kashmir Files.

Plot

Laal tells his life story to a stranger while eating golgappas. Laal was a boy with weak legs, though his mother was supportive and he had a best friend named Rupa D’Souza. One day, a group of bullies started pelting stones at Laal. The stones broke Laal's leg braces into pieces and he realized he could run. One day, Laal went to visit Rupa and found her sitting outside her house sobbing. Her father was physically abusing her mother. Rupa's mother died, and her father was taken by police. Rupa was sent to live with her grandmother, who used to work at Laal’s house. Laal was happy, because now he and Rupa were always together.

Laal’s mother sent him and Rupa to Hindu College in Delhi. At university, Laal took part in track, whereas Rupa started taking part in modeling competitions. Rupa dreamt of becoming a model in Mumbai and becoming rich.

Laal joined the Army, and Rupa went to Mumbai to pursue her dreams. Laal met Balaraju Bodi in the Army, who became his friend. Bala pitched the idea of opening an undergarment factory with Laal once they left the Army, and Laal agreed.

In 1999, India was at war with Pakistan. Laal and Bala were in the same battalion. Rupa had told Laal to start running as soon as his life was in danger. When the Pakistani soldiers had an advantage, he ran, but realized that Bala was left behind. He went back, but every time he went back, he found another soldier who was injured and asking for help. He also saved a Pakistani commander, not knowing he was the enemy. He couldn't save Bala, but was awarded a medal by the Indian Government for saving 5 soldiers.

Rupa never responded to any letters that Laal sent her. She had become the mistress of a gangster who took advantage of her and lied about fulfilling her dreams (parallels are made to the controversial relationship of the infamous gangster Abu Salem and Monica Bedi). Laal went to meet her and saw the gangster slap her; Laal responded by beating him up. Rupa told him that he couldn’t keep saving her and that he would have to let her be. Rupa knew that she and Laal loved each other unconditionally, but she wanted to be rich at any cost.

Laal finally opened a business for innerwear but didn’t know how to market his product. Then, Mohammed Baaji, the Pakistani commander Laal had saved, joined the team. Mohammed had the idea if the brand was named after a girl, then maybe their sales would increase. Laal knew of only one girl, so he renamed his company Rupa (a reference to the knitwear company). The sales started to grow, and soon the company was selling underwear to all of India. After a while, Mohammed decided to go back to his country and open a school. Laal’s mother also passed away, leaving him alone.

Laal dedicated his time to tending to the land his mother left him. Rupa visited him one day, but quickly the police came searching for her as she had links to the gangster. She was sent to prison for six months without telling Laal. This sparked negative emotions for Laal which he struggled to manage, so he started running to try to escape them.

Other people thought he might be running for some great purpose, and the media started covering his journey. His run covered almost every inch of the country. After years of running, he suddenly stopped. People had started running with him. They asked him why he stopped, expecting a philosophical answer. Laal said that he was tired and that he wanted to go back home.

When Laal reached home, he was pleasantly surprised to know that Rupa had written him a lot of letters. She had served her sentence and was now living in Chandigarh. Laal met Rupa and found out that she had a kid named Aman and that he was the father. Laal was overjoyed. Rupa was suffering from a terminal illness. Laal decided to marry her. After Rupa's death, Laal took Aman to the same school that he had gone to, feeling that his life had come full circle.

The dominant style of American cinema is classical Hollywood cinema, which developed from 1913 to 1969 and is still typical of most films made there to this day. While Frenchmen Auguste and Louis Lumière are generally credited with the birth of modern cinema, American cinema soon came to be a dominant force in the emerging industry. As of 2017, it produced the third-largest number of films of any national cinema, after India and China, with more than 600 English-language films released on average every year. While the national cinemas of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand also produce films in the same language, they are not part of the Hollywood system. That said, Hollywood has also been considered a transnational cinema, and has produced multiple language versions of some titles, often in Spanish or French.

India

Laal Singh Chaddha received mixed reviews from critics.[110][111] Devesh Sharma of Filmfare rated the film 4 out of 5 stars and wrote "Atul and Advait have invested more in the story than history.

You will particularly remember a crackling Shah Rukh Khan cameo".[114] Stutee Ghosh of The Quint rated the film 3.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "Laal Singh Chaddha is made up of many memorable, heartwarming moments. It says a lot that will leave us smiling or moist eyed".[115] Sukanya Verma of Rediff rated the film 3.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "Laal Singh Chaddha does not let its source down. And replacing a box of chocolates with a ready-to-eat gol gappe kit is geeeenius, like Laal's Ustad would say".[116] Sanchita Jhunjhunwala of Zoom rated the film 3.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "The movie leaves you teary eyed, even though it doesn't make you cry, and that, we feel, makes it a job well done by the entire team!".[117] Avinash Lohana of Pinkvilla rated the film 3 out of 5 stars and wrote "Aamir Khan and his team manage to live up to the original and present an entertaining watch".[118] Nairita Mukherjee of India Today rated the film 3 out of 5 stars and wrote "For the most part, director Advait Chandan's Laal Singh Chaddha remains faithful to the original material".[119]

Nandini Ramnath of Scroll.in rated the film 3 out of 5 stars and wrote "Except for a few crucial changes, the film is faithful to the beats of its source material".[120]

M. Vetticad of Firstpost rated the film 2.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "Laal Singh Chaddha must stand on its own sans comparisons since it is being viewed in 2022 by a whole generation of viewers to whom Forrest Gump is not a cultural reference that evokes nostalgia".[126] Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express rated the film 2 out of 5 stars and wrote "It’s not just the pace of the film which is the trouble.

Politics

The supporters of the ruling party in India Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) boycotted the film with twitter hashtags, prior to the release of the film.[137] BJP supporters claimed the boycott was due to lead actor Aamir Khan's remarks in 2015 about "growing intolerance" in India,[138] his 2014 movie PK that purportedly mocked Hindu gods and Hinduism,[139] and his 2017 meeting with Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (who is alleged to be "Hinduphobic").[140]
