The Pursuit of Happyness – A worth-watch

with one comment

A Rare movie of its kind

The pursuit of happyness
“You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.
Mysteries, Hardluck, Tragedy…when everything strucks at a time, not every man can withstand that. It pays to show some perseverence and pure character, at times of grave grief and downfall, and that is what exactly Mr. Chris Gardner tries to convey from his life, the character of whom is being gracefully executed by the genius in Will Smith, in this movie.
This movie was for long in my to-watch list and suddenly got a chance to have a luk at it alone in the silence of a vacant workplace 🙂 Seldom could you witness such a graceful execution of a great human’s life onscreen. The sequence, and the emotional flow got the better of me and i was drawed into the onscreen genius in Will Smith as Chris Gardner, who went on to establish an organization, after persevering from the hardships and the mysteries that was his all-time companion and showed the character by protecting his responsibility all along.
This is a must-watch for those aspiring young family-men who are beginning to setup a family and this certainly would pave the base for a confident start in your life. Believe me, this movie just rocks and would remain green for another stage of my life.

Thandie Newton –   Linda
In 1981, in San Francisco, the smart salesman and family man Chris Gardner invested the family savings in Ostelo National bone-density scanners, an apparatus twice more expensive than x-ray with practically the same resolution. The white elephant financially breaks the family, bringing troubles to the relationship with his wife that leaves him and moves to New York. Without money and wife, but totally committed with his son Christopher, Chris sees the chance to fight for a stockbroker internship position at Dean Witter, disputing for one career in the end of six months training period without any salary with other twenty candidates. Meanwhile, homeless, he has all sorts of difficulties with his son.

  1. I definitely agree on that.

    People should make more movies like this. To inspire everyone.

    We all deserve a better life, not to the point where we have to sell those machines that he sells, which actually brought a more realistic touch to the film.

    I recommend you watch “Crash” too.
