It is difficult to care about a stranger, but stories prove otherwise. It is difficult to care about a fictional character, but Pursuit of Happyness will prove you otherwise. One of the most heartwarming and uplifting movies you’ll watch, it is based upon a memoir by Quincy Troupe. The tender story follows the life struggles of Chris Gardner and his beautiful bonding with his son. It is emotional, providing a flux of varied emotions, making it a wholesome watch.

Here is why you should watch ‘Pursuit of Happyness’:

The dialogues are exceptional and the background score is inspiring. The struggle with homelessness begins when Chris entrusts his life savings into a product that doesn’t generate sales on time. The narrative is simple and straightforward, but is emotionally dense and motivating. A movie that’s close to many hearts.

If you are desperately looking for happiness, then this movie is for you. It depicts the resilience and strength required to get to the good parts of life. It’s the universe’s way of reminding everyone they can find happiness too. Despite its desperateness, the story is persistent and always hopeful. Will Smith playing the earnest dad steals the show. His impressive performance is filled with heart and soul.

It is a story of poverty, hunger and suffering in golden America. At its core lies the optimism that by working harder and being better than others, you can pull yourself up by your bootstraps. It is easy to be skeptical of films like this. But Will Smith’s performance makes it all come together. We like the movie because we like Chris and his earnestness. His goals and motivations are right. Each time he’s beaten down, he always finds his way back up. His love for his son depicts the unconditional love fathers have for their children. He fights the right fight. In the end, it’s the character that stays with you.

Some dialogues that become the film’s soul are:

“I’m the type of person that if you ask me a question and I don’t know the answer, I’m gonna tell you that I don’t know. But I bet you what, I know how to find the answer and I will find the answer.” This is a testament to Chris’ persistence and willpower.

“You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.” Because if you’re not going to work hard for your dreams, no one else will.

Pursuit of Happyness is a once in a lifetime movie. It could never be made today. Everyone should watch this underdog story. A man’s incredible attitude towards life and mission to do right by his son is what made him a millionaire. Despite his circumstances and being told he was not competent, he rose up. As a stranger, you couldn’t be more proud of him. What are you waiting for? Time to Pursue Happyness!
