Been a very long time since I thought about a movie as much as I thought about thee movie “pursuit of happyness” .. Read the review here a few days back and I had decided by then, whatever happens I have to see this movie. Finally got a chance to see it last weekend.
My advise to you is, if you still haven’t seen it .. please get off your seat and go buy the ticket now. Its a total eye opener, and although I can’t relate to the character as much as Poorna did ( read the review ) .. but its still a story that touched my heart.
You really can’t ask for anything more from a movie, its not an entertainer .. its not a goody goody feeling movie .. its a movie that makes you think about how hard some people have to struggle to get the things in life that some of us just take granted. For me , it now ranks amongst my favourite fighter movies of all time .. Cinderella Man was another such movie and this one beats Cinderella Man in terms if sheer emotion and simplicity of theme and depiction of reality.
Favourite Scene ->
The one with Will Smith holding on to the door of the subway bathroom so that no one can open it to disturb his kid’s sleep because they didn’t have any other place to sleep in.
Favourite Lines ->
1. Will Smith to a guy who has just parked his sexy car right in front of him : “Dude, i have got two questions for you .. What do you do ?? and how do you do it ? ”
2. Interviewer to Will Smith when he walked in to the stock-broker intern interview wearing jeans and a vest with a jacket -> “What would you say if I gave the job to a guy who walks into a interview without his shirt” , Will Smith : “Nice pants 🙂 ”
My Verdict -> Awesome .. awesome .. awesome !!
