Well, I dont really know if it has released in India yet... but just to set the scene, it was the closest competitor to Slumdog in the race for this year's Best movie Oscar... and as far as I am concerned, this was a better movie than Slumdog.
Anyhow, the movie is written by the same guy who wrote Forest Gump, and the similarities are visible. If you liked Forest Gump, you are bound to like this. You may have your own favorite out of the two but you will like them both. Pitt has acted well, so have the other characters around him; but clearly he is the center character of the story and he has done quite well. The makeup and the cinematography are unique and soothing to the eye!
Not a must watch but an excellent movie nevertheless.
