Hansal took to Twitter around midnight to share his reaction after watching Laal Singh Chaddha, He wrote, “Watched #LaalSinghChaddha. It is a very engaging film made with passion and love. Maybe a bit too overstated emotionally and a bit superficial politically for my taste but a film made with so much care, heart, and honesty. It deserves to succeed. So much to admire.”
He further added, “But the truth is I found myself either moist-eyed or smiling for a major part of the film. Go watch #LaalSinghChaddha. Stop spreading Malaria.”
Directed by Advait Chandan, Laal Singh Chaddha is the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks’ 1994 Hollywood classic, Forrest Gump. The film marks Aamir Khan’s return to the silver screen after the debacle of Thugs of Hindostan in 2018. It also stars Kareena Kapoor, Mona Singh, and Naga Chaitanya in pivotal roles.
The film, however, is yet to register the expected response at the ticket counters. It has made around 27.70 crore in three days of its release.
On Friday, a complaint was also filed against Aamir for allegedly disrespecting the Indian Army and hurting Hindu sentiments with the film. The complainant objected to a scene where Pakistani personnel asks Laal Singh Chaddha, “I offer Namaz and pray, Laal, why don’t you do the same?” and Laal replies, “my mother said all this puja paath is malaria. It causes riots.” Objections have also been raised over how a mentally challenged person has been allowed to join the Indian Army to fight in the Kargil War in the film.
