The trailer of Laal Singh Chaddha was released during the first innings of the IPL 2022 finale. The movie is produced by Aamir Khan and is a Hindi adaptation of the 1994 award-winning Hollywood movie Forrest Grump! The lead role of Mr. Grump is played by Tom Hanks. The trailer of Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan, was unveiled on May 29.
Hanks plays the titular character of Forrest Gump who is a slow-witted gentleman who inspires those around him with his undying optimism while navigating major socio-political events of the 60s and 70s.
Laal Singh Chaddha, which also stars Mona Singh and Chaitanya Akkineni, has been directed by Advait Chandan. It will be out in cinemas on August 11. The movie features actors Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead roles.
In the almost three-minute-long trailer, we get a glimpse at Aamir’s Laal Singh Chadha, a simple, unassuming man who was raised on a farm by his doting mother (Mona Singh). We see how a young Laal had a disability that required him to have leg braces. And then, miraculously, he broke free as his friend yelled, “Bhaag Laal bhaag” (No prizes for Run, Forrest run flashbacks). Laal grows up to be a runner professionally and then joins the Indian Army. We see glimpses of his camaraderie with Naga Chaitanya’s character and them fighting shoulder-to-shoulder in a war. And we also see Kareena Kapoor’s Vimmy, the love of Laal’s life, and our desi Jenny. He wants to marry her but she doesn’t see them go anywhere. Interspersed with Aamir’s attempt at a Punjabi accent, the film flips through a few decades of Indian history, just like the original did with American history. Take the soulful tour of Laal Singh Chaddha with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor.
And towards the end, we also see what it is like to Indianise an iconic film line. Forrest’s, “Mama always said life is like a box of chocolates,” becomes Laal’s “Maa kehti thi zindagi golgappe ki tarah hoti hai.”
After seeing the trailer, we can say that the film will take you on a soulful journey of challenges, hope, and love just like “Forrest Grump”.
