Laal Singh Chaddha

Raised by a determined mother who will do anything for her son, young Laal Singh Chaddha has always been dismissed by others as simpleminded. Befriended by classmate Rupa, she becomes his guardian angel and eventually the object of his affection. Inseparable as they grow up together in regional India, Laal and Rupa eventually part ways when they become young adults. Despite his naïveté, fate has great things in store for Laal (Aamir Khan) while life’s path for Rupa (Kareena Kapoor) takes a far more challenging route.

Sound familiar? LAAL SINGH CHADDHA is the long-awaited and utterly captivating Indian adaptation of 1990s pop culture phenomenon Forrest Gump. Seamlessly adapted from Eric Roth’s Oscar winning screenplay, Advait Chandan directs this epic comedy drama of chance that sees an ordinary man bear witness to significant turning-points in Indian history. An homage to the power of storytelling, LAAL SING CHADDHA is a rare and compelling chance to see a beloved Hollywood tale be retold by ‘Bollywood’.
