Forrest Gump (1994) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Drama)

25 May, 2009 | Movies To See Before You Die / Drama

Another masterpiece from Tom Hanks, who surpassed his own set standards of acting and reached new greater heights in his inspiring career with “Forrest Gump”. The movie is about a loving personality with a low intelligence quotient but a heart full of emotions. The story talks about his journey from his childhood to his youth and how he faces all the complexities of life with his saintly smile and ease. He overcomes his fears, fights with his limitations and wins every heart on his way. He earns name, fame and glory with his inspirational and innovative acts and goes on to become a Hero in the eyes of a common man.

However the only thing he remembers in every phase of his life is his childhood love, Jenny. His emotions and expressions whenever he thinks or talks about Jenny are simply adorable.  Later in his life, as there are more great events happening around him, he still has Jenny in his mind, as always. It’s also fun to see the animated graphics where Forrest is there interacting with some great historical figures of the past with his lovable smile.
The director uses many novel sequences in the movie where Forrest Gump is shown creating history in his own style, which also becomes funny at times. For example, when Forrest just decides to run and run for several days without any motive or aim and people also start following him blindly…..it all seems to be funny and weird at the same time. But the exceptional act of Tom Hanks makes every single step of Forrest, believable as real. His inimitable and worth praising performance makes every single flaw in the movie simply vanish in the thin air. And there lies the beauty of this movie called “Forrest Gump”
In fact, the much appreciated act of Hrithik Roshan as a low I.Q. person in “Koi Mil Gaya” also seems to be inspired from the Academy Award Winner performance of Tom Hanks. If you haven’t seen this yet, then you are missing one of the most famous and highly admired acts in the world of cinema. And as Forrest’s mama used to say, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get”………So, it’s indeed worth trying.
