Laal Singh Chaddha First Look: Aamir Khan Raises Our Hopes About 'Forrest Gump' Remake

And, as far as I am concerned, I am actually optimistic about Laal Singh Chadha after taking a peep at Aamir Khan's...

India has a pretty bad history of remaking Hollywood movies. We've turned the riveting The Silence of the Lambs into whatever Sangharsh was, Hitch into Partner, Reservoir Dogs into Kaante, Bruce Almighty into God Tussi Great Ho, The Italian Job and Players. So, the very sound of Bollywood turning the critically-acclaimed Forrest Gump into Laal Singh Chaddha started to raise a lot of red flags...

...See, the thing with Forrest Gump that you can't really get it wrong. It has all the masala to be iterated and reiterated for generations. And although Aamir Khan hasn't particularly given us some of the best movies of all time (I still shudder at the thought of Thugs of Hindostan), but I know that he's capable of giving genuinely great performances. So, let's wait and watch to see how Laal Singh Chaddha turns out.
