About Nemo

Nemo is the typical movie buff. Well, he hates popcorn though! He watches every kind of movies, in languages he can understand, some he cant. His tastes in movies can only be matched by his diversity. He flows with the film. Get scared in horror ones, tear up in tragedies, and laugh his ass off in comedies. He can give you killer reviews and he doesn't miss many, so you are in for a treat! By Dory

The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)


Imdb link : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454921/

Genre : Biography | Drama

Cast: Will Smith,Jaden Smith,Thandie Newton,James Karen and Brian Howe

Review : Christopher Gardner ,this name you will remember surely for a long time after watching Gabriele Muccino's classic "Pursuit of happyness". Inspired by a true story this movie indeed is Will smith's one step forward to the golden lady.
The film revolves round Chris Gardner(Will) and his son Christopher(Jaden Smith- son of Will and Jada Pinkett)who tries to sale a bone scanner throughout the movie.Her wife Linda (Thandie Newton) depressed of her marital life and out of sheer depression leaves for Newyork leaving her family. Life became a mere search of 'happyness' for father and son from thereafter.The miss spelling of happyness is indeed sarcastic to its core.Soon the father-son looses home,had to literally hunt down food in the streets.Christopher became desperate and with every passing day the hunt for happiness made him more desperate.He applies for a stockbroker internship where one in twenty has a chance of a lucrative full time career.But the real touchy part is towards the end,final scene were just too good for any movie buff.

I absolutely love this movie.It teaches us Two ways to be rich: One is to have great wealth. The other is to have few wants .It is one of my favourite films made ever.If you have missed it in theatres do rent a CD soon from a nearby CD-library.

Rating :4.5/5 *A must watch*
