A movie for mixed emotions

Today, I saw "The Pursuit of Happyness" at a nearby Cinemark, and I should say it is among the best ones of its class. This movie, based on the true story of Christopher Gardner is highly inspirational, and brings out mixed emotions within us. One is of course the determination to achieve something substantial in life.

Further, this movie instigates the philanthropic nature within all of us. Its sad to find people struggling on a daily basis to make ends meet. I feel each of us should have the philanthropic nature running alive in us as long as we live on this planet.

We often spend hundreds $$ on cool gadgets, weekend parties, luxury items, etc... Why not contribute a small fraction of our salary for the poor & needy. It does not hurt much! does it? I'm sure many of us do our best, and many others don't. Its a shame on those cold-hearted people who care less about others, and selfish for the most part.

To serve as an eye-opener, just ask yourself this one question: "On an average, How much service do you do to the society each year? (in any form including money, things, work, ...)". If you have not defined it, this may be a good time for you to put some thought on it.

Well... talking about the movie, Read the article on Wikipedia for some interesting notes that include trivia, and differences between the film and actual events. I personally loved the movie, and the message it delivers. The scene I liked the most is when the commentator says "This brief moment is called happiness" during the climax of the film.

I liked the movie, but was often made remember 'varumaiyin niram sivappu' by kamal hasan. The movie is the same , how they make the ends meet, but at last it takes a bad turn, not the feel good type like POH. Anyways, everyone should contribute something back to the society where we came from.
