And, some were disappointed that the remake will ruin iconic Forrest Gump for them!
There are some movies which should NEVER be adapted.
Forrest Gump is one of them.— Savio Shetty (@abeautifulmind7) May 29, 2022

If you can’t wrote a good script. For God sake don’t spoil a legend movie like Forrest Gump!— Shri_UTD (@sambhavamee) May 29, 2022
Acting looks so fake and that accent is dhappa on anyone who speaks and knows Punjabi🤦😭
Forrest Gump ruined😏 Why, oh,why? It is one of the finest performances— Janani Sampath Veeravalli✍️ 🇮🇳 (@jananisampath) May 29, 2022
I have seen #ForrestGump and if you compare it with #LaalSinghChaddha then it is nowhere near to its original version,I wish #AamirKhan all the best, may film turns out to be a BIG BLOCKBUSTER but as far as #LaalSinghChaddhaTrailer is concerned Woh Emotions he nahi hai boss…— Rohit Jaiswal (@rohitjswl01) May 29, 2022
Please watch Forrest Gump, if you haven’t yet. Bollywood is gonna destroy it soon. 🙂— Prem Ansh Sinha (@premanshsinha) May 29, 2022
Worst recreation of the Forrest Gump. Bullywood should stick to its nibba nibbi ganjedi stories rather than destroying masterpieces.— ℳℴ𝓊𝓂𝒾𝓉𝒶 🇮🇳 (@_mou_mita) May 30, 2022
On the other hand, some bashed Aamir Khan for his overacting and said that his performance in the film reminds them of Dhoom 3.
Fanwar aside but genuinely #LaalSinghChaddhaTrailer is just average trailer! movie is A to Z copy of Forrest Gump and absolutely #Aamirkhan ruined legacy of Tom Hanks.— 𝐃𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐬 ☠️ 𝐊𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐢 (@Darsh_official_) May 29, 2022
Trailer says it all. he did acting like cartoon even after taking 4 years for it. pic.twitter.com/qlkph2BG7f
I’m deeply saddened by the brutal murder of Tom Hanks’s Forrest Gump.— Kattar Aadmi (@MuhToddDunga) May 29, 2022
Please arrest Aamir Khan for committing this crime.
There was a time when making Hollywood movies made sense. People did not have the access to H’wood movies.
Times have changed & those who have watched Forrest Gump won’t waste their time & money on watching Aamir Khan’s cringe PK expression in #LalSinghChaddha pic.twitter.com/MorrOagJN0— Incognito (@Incognito_qfs) May 30, 2022
Now this could be classified as overacting. Forrest Gump mein aadhe tedhe muh nahi bana raha tha Tom Hanks.— MeMyself (@SomeGuyKK) May 29, 2022
Pigmy Aamir Khan can never match up to Tom Hanks.— Onkar Thonte (@OnkarThonte) May 29, 2022
Forrest Gump is an iconic movie.
Aamir is acting here like a deranged man, like he did in Dhoom 3.
Tom Hanks never looked deranged in Forrest Gump.
He had incredible poise.
Khan doesn’t !
Story Of Forrest Gump + Dhoom 3 Character Like Mannerism And Speaking Style + Some PK shades = Laal Singh Chadda #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha #LaalSinghChaddhaTrailer #BoycottBollywood (Nepotism Products,Not Geniune Artists)— 🕊⌚SGK📸 (@SGK_tweets_) May 30, 2022
There were few, who recommended others to watch Forrest Gump as it is available on Amazon Prime in English as well as in Hindi.
Please watch Forrest Gump instead of #LaalSinghChaddha.— धैर्या (@LuthraDhairya) May 29, 2022
It’s a great movie and is available on Amazon prime in both English as well as Hindi
Why watch a copy?#BoycottBollywood #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha #AamirKhan #SushantSinghRajput pic.twitter.com/uCma1znY1J
