"…For starters, it is incredibly difficult to succinctly paraphrase compress an epic like Forest Gump or its adaptation into a five minute swell. So forgive me for not being able to cover everything, and I think I've already used up 15 seconds, 20 seconds of that. But long story short, there will be three different types of audiences that will view this movie from three different lenses.…"

"…And I'm really excited about you giving me some direction in terms of what movies I should watch. The last movie I watched from Bollywood was Fire. That was amazing movie. So thank you for this and I'm looking forward to finding it somehow and streaming it. Thanks.…"

"…And as is the case with everything in life, it kind of follows the Bell curve part. There are some which are extraordinary and it leaves you wondering why. And the majority are like, yes, this could have been better, and that could have been better. And then there is a set of movies which are terrible. So creators, artists, artistry, all follow this kind of a pattern.…"

"…But I'm just wondering, from your perspective, how does the culture of awards play into the culture of filmmaking?…"

"…There is a section or a segment called the Critics Award and some of the independent films sometimes get mentioned or highlighted there. But largely it's a populist thing. It is a show made for the audience, TV viewing audience if you will, and there's a ton of ad revenue that is generated off it. Given the fact that India within itself is a market, even probably repeating myself, that after 1.37 billion, even 500 million watch those awards, that's a huge captive audience right there.…"

"…And yes, thank you for keeping it spoiler free, because one thing I was definitely curious about is how they are going to translate some of the themes that existed in Forest Gump to the Indian diaspora, so to speak. So thank you so much for the review. Looking forward to maybe whenever the movies drops on an OTP platform. Hoping that it does, given what is happening with its box office figures. So pointless, right? People just boycotting the movie.…"

"…Box Office collection should have no bearing on the quality of cinema. That is completely a different skill set, different assessment altogether. Now, as far as lasting tender is concerned, you should watch it as a standalone movie. You should watch it as a standalone Indian movie. Don't jump into a compare between what Forest Gump was and what last thing Jedi is. It is difficult if you especially closely watched Forest Gump and understood the way it is supposed to be.…"

Watch Dhruv Rathee on YouTube - Laal Singh Chaddha Boycott Or listen to my podcast review on The Gyanban Experience - it might help clarify.

"…So that is one thing I remember taking from Forest Comp that you definitely matter, especially when your intentions are pure and you are focused on getting the job done, irrespective of the other things. So, yeah, just like getting value from a movie that seemingly annoyed me. I'm sure I'm going to get something from LOLs and Jedi. So definitely this weekend, I'm going to find a way to see it and get back to you about whether donut. Thank you so much. Bye.…"
