Describe a character from a movie
- You should say:
- Who is this character
- When did you watch the movie
- What was the character
I am a movie buff and like to watch movies of all genres.
Nowadays, I mostly watch movies on streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime.
For some special movies like those starring my favorite actors or the big blockbusters, I like
to see them at the movie theatre.
As far as characters, I feel that there have been many memorable and iconic ones that I have
Here I would like to talk about the main character of the movie Laal Singh Chaddha.
This movie is the Bollywood remake and adaptation of the classic Hollywood movie Forrest
I watched this movie last year on its release day (August 2022).
I was eagerly waiting for this movie as it stars my favorite actor Aamir Khan who plays the
character of Laal Singh Chaddha.
Having seen Forrest Gump, I knew only Aamir Khan could do justice to the role of the main
character played by Tom Hanks in the original movie.
He is a phenomenal actor and, in the past, has starred in many memorable Bollywood films
like Lagaan, Dil Chahta Hai, Dangal, etc.
He is very picky, does only one movie a year, and gives his all to the movie. This movie was
his comeback to the big screen after four years.
Its release got delayed several times due to covid restrictions.
The main character Laal Singh Chaddha is shown as a slow-witted but kindhearted Sikh man.
In the movie, he recounts his life story to some passengers he meets on the train.
The movie is about his extraordinary journey and devotion to his loved ones and duties. His
life is full of miracles, and he becomes successful in everything he does.
As a child, he wears legs braces due to a physical disability but one day when some bullies
are chasing him, he runs, his braces fall off and he becomes faster and faster.
After college, he joins the army where he performs very well and is rewarded for saving
several lives during the war.
He returns back home and starts an underwear company with a partner who is actually a
terrorist he saved. His company does exceptionally well and becomes popular throughout
He reunites with his only childhood friend, but when she leaves, he becomes lonely and
starts running. He runs across India for several months and becomes famous.
People think he is running for a great purpose and start running with him.
When he eventually stops, people ask him why he stopped, and he simply answers, ‘I am
tired and want to go home.’
I will always remember the emotional honesty of this simple character.
