Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha

On Aug 11th, Aamir Khan’s movie, Laal Singh Chaddha, which is allegedly an Indian version of Forest Gump was released. A few days before that I received the following article on one of my school Whatsapp groups. I have several classmates who are in the armed forces and this movie seems to have shown the army in a bad light.

For nearly 15 years now, Krishnan and I don’t watch any Bollywood movie unless we are told by several friends that its worth watching. We made an exception for Rocketry, The Kashmir Files – Gut Wrenching 😔 and before these two for “Uri”.

The movie world is obviously the world of make believe but when true incidents are twisted and facts are turned into myths just citing creative freedom, its not worth spending money on.

Do read the following article and you may also want to boycott Laal Singh Chaddha –

1966 में अमेरिका और वियतनाम का युद्ध चल रहा था…. हजारों मील दूर एक अनजान देश में लड़ाई लड़ने के लिए आपको Trained Manpower चाहिए होती है. अमेरिका के पास इसकी कमी थी, इसका हल उन्होंने यह निकाला कि अमेरिकी फ़ौज के Mental, Physical, educational standards को अलग कर के उन्होंने 1,00,000 सैनिक भर्ती करने का plan बनाया. इस plan को Project 1,00,000 या McNamara Morons or Misfit भी कहा जाता है.

इस प्रोग्राम में दिमागी रूप से कमजोर, शारीरिक रूप से misfit, कम पढ़े लिखे या अनपढ़ लड़कों को भर्ती कर वियतनाम भेज दिया गया था…. उस युद्ध में हुई अमेरिका की हार और उनके बेहिसाब मारे गए सैनिकों की मृत्यु के पीछे एक बड़ा कारण यही McNamara Morons ही थे.

Forest Gump फ़िल्म में Tom Hanks ने एक कम बुद्धि वाले इंसान का रोल निभाया है…. उन्हें भी वियतनाम भेजा जाता है, उन्हें भी एक Mcnamara मोरों के रूप में भर्ती किया जाता है……. अब ये उस देश की सच्चाई है, Tom Hanks ने जो किरदार निभाया, ऐसा वहाँ सच में हुआ था… इसीलिए यह एक सच्ची फ़िल्म लगती है.

लाल सिंह चड्ढा को सीन दर सीन Forest Gump की नकल करके बनाया गया है…. हाँ कुछ गाने, गोलगप्पे की बकवास और कुछ समसामयिक चीजें डाली होंगी balance बनाने के लिए. इसमें आमिर खान ने भी एक कम बुद्धि, कम IQ, या शरीरिक कमी वाले इंसान (Moron)का रोल निभाया है….

यहाँ एक बात सबको जाननी चाहिए… भारतीय सेना एक Moral Army है…. वो ना शरीरिक कमी वाले लोगों को लेती है, ना अपने मानसिक स्वास्थ्य और Educational parameters पर किसी भी तरह का समझौता करती है….. Morons को भर्ती करने का तो सवाल ही नहीं उठता.

चलिए मान लेते हैं कि फ़िल्म में थोड़ी बहुत artistic liberty ली जा सकती है…… लेकिन आप Fundamentals से छेड़ छाड़ नहीं कर सकते….. यह संभव नहीं है, और ना Army को यह करने देना चाहिए.

सौ बात कि एक बात है…..India never recruited morons in its Army.

और यहाँ आमिर खान का किरदार Para का badge लगा कर बेवकूफो की तरह आखें खोल कर अभिनय करने की Acting कर रहा है……. यह बड़ा ही बेहूदा प्रयास है हमारी सेना को गलत तरीके से represent करने का… हमारे अफसर, हमारे जवानों का एक class होता है, एक गरिमा होती है…. वो ऐसे बेवकूफो जैसा व्यवहार नहीं करते.

आप अगर विदेशी script उठा भी रहे हो.. तो उसे अपने देश के Context में सही से रखो, जहाँ जरूरी है वहाँ बदलाव करो…. तभी कुछ बात बनेगी….

Forest Gump में अमेरिका आर्मी को Aggressor बताया है… लाल सिंह चड्ढा में क्या भारतीय फ़ौज को aggressor बताओगे ???

For those readers who cannot read Hindi, the gist of the message is – Forest Gump showed how America had recruited nearly 100,000 misfits, mentally unstable men and morons into the US army in 1966 to fight the Vietnam war. Tom Hanks showcased one such soldier.

The Indian army does not recruit morons. Indian Army also expects a certain standard in education and value system from the men and women it recruits. Aamir Khan is shown wearing the badge of a Para which is the elite force in the Indian Army and he behaves like an idiot.

I guess its time to boycott Bollywood as a whole. Most of these stars have become too full of themselves and they think, the audience is foolish, starstruck ! Now you also have the PR machinery thrown in to promote the movies and the kind of things the stars are made to do is bizarre.

Unfortunately a lot of good talented actors are lost in this mess.

Laal Singh Chaddha and Hindumisia

Like in several movies, Laal Singh Chaddha also shows the deep hatred that Bollywood has for Hindus and Hinduism. A dialogue in the movie shows Aamir Khan saying “my mother says all this puja paath is like malaria. Puja se Dange bhadakte hain ” (my mother says all this Hindu prayers and rituals are like malaria. They cause riots).

Just FYI for Aamir Khan – The Kumbh mela had millions of visitors and not a single riot …. in contrast there are riots during Moharram processions and stones are thrown on Hindus when they go through Muslim majority areas carrying their Gods peacefully. Do we live in a secular country or a Muslim country ????

Am sure Dawood Ibrahim’s money helps decide what’s shown in most of the Bollywood movies …. am equally sure that I will not watch what a mobster wants me to watch 🙄.

Boycott LSC for its Hindumisia. Honestly am tired of these guys… this same Aamir Khan felt India was very intolerant and met with Turkey’s First Lady. What stops him from shifting to Turkey ? He can marry several beautiful Turkish women and live in a tolerant society. Why does he keep marrying Hindu women and why are all his children Muslim?

Advance Booking – PR exercise for Morons

Do watch this slightly long video on how the whole advance booking drama unfolds for Laal Singh Chaddha.

Just to see if this video was indeed true, I tried booking tickets for Laal Singh Chaddha and the next two pics show how this movie is doing….. wonderfully well.

Laal Singh Chadda
Empty theatres in Gurgaon !!!

Empty theatres within 3 days of the movie releasing

Tamil movies are no better. There is just too much violence and the double meaning dialogues are like badly done soft porn.

We need good stories told well like Rocketry. I have to write the review for Rocketry and its long overdue. Maybe tonight !

In the meantime, don’t waste money on Laal Singh Chaddha. Instead buy food for the beggars you see around you or go out and treat yourself to a nice meal. That would be a better use of your money.

1 thought on “Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha”

  1. The entire hypocritical Bollywood Brigade deserves to be boycotted. Aamir has made it a business to badmouth Hindu culture in his talk shows. Kareena Kapoor was arrogant enough to ask people not to go and watch the movie if they don’t wish to, and has now resorted to begging people to go watch it !! They are all sold out to money and all they care about is box office numbers and maintaining their flashy lifestyles. Rightly said … boycott the movie and use the money for a noble cause. Art should not be mixed with politics… but it was highly insensitive of Aamir to meet with the First Lady of a nation whose policies are blatantly anti-Indian. He was representing India first, the fact that he is an artist is secondary.
