The Pursuit of Happyness

After months of waiting to catch the movie, I finally did that last night. (It's one of the movies I bought at landmark sometime back, if you remember :) )
To say the least, I was floored. The narration was so smooth and the flow was so engrossing. Sure will be a great source of inspiration for all those who want to make it big.

But what incited me into typing this excuse-for-a-blog-post was just one scene close to the climax: when the bosses at the stock broking firm call Smith for a meeting at the end of his internship. I still get goosebumps when I think of the way Smith emoted in that scene.

Mind-blowing and Super (to borrow from Sangeetha and Sundaram Master of Jodi No 1 fame, respectively)

Want to catch "Life is beautiful" next (also so that I can finally put up one post with a label that makes some sense)

The Pursuit of Happyness is a nice movie and more what it is a real life story!

Ya.. That's what packed the punch to the movie..

But in real life, Chris Gardner was paid during internship also, albeit a pittance.. but that part was twisted to add spice to the movie :)

Even before the internship, he would be called for a interview. He would have spent the previous night in the jail and he would come to the interview without his shirt and paint on his face. The only question the panel asks him "What do you say if I(Boss) hire a guy who can come to the interview without his shirt on?" Pat came the reply from Chris - - He must have been wearing a very good pant!. Ausome line i thought. Watched this movie a large number of times of the happyness.

There is not so important dialogue, which Smith says to the teacher,'There is no 'y' in happyness'.

You don't need a reason to be happy. Liked this movie very much...

Keep penning
