Uunchai Film Review
Boundless life is a sense of freedom that you can set up for yourself and others, knowing how to live in difficult situations. Uunchai film is an edited reality reminding pain can be recited as a poem. Uunchai takes us beyond one more stepping stone, the meaning of which differs for different people wanting to be happy in their lifetime. Although life is not like our expectations, we can still learn to live, for which you should definitely watch Uunchai with your friends and family.
The director (Sooraj Barjatya) tells through this film that we must strive to chase what fills life with passion, courage and peace. Most of the time, it is not physical pain, as situational drama may get out of control of actors leading it on the stage of the present life. In Uunchai, you get to experience the trek of young minds with old bodies carrying emotional pain and striving for peace. Life is certainly not easy for anyone as we do not have everything in control. However, taking charge of your life is still important if you want to experience Uunchai of self-satisfaction, having embodied your ideal version while going through the upheavals of daily life. The individuals are vulnerable to painful moments, but their strength lies in people who are often called friends and family they want to live the rest of life with.
Uunchai takes you to the point of realization in relation to motivational friendship and stagnant blood relations tying us with variable happiness. From beginning with initial struggling glimpses on Mount Everest Base Camp to wrapping up the big canvas with colours of mixed emotions, the story unfolds the art of how to live, control anger, rejoice and love. This film covers a range of real factors that human life is composed of from birth to death and in between, the quality of ageing and relations create the situational drama. It is our attitude towards life that decides how we respond to each important question that life may ask each day. Every character who appears on screen reminds life must be lived.
Amit Shrivastav (Amitabh Bachchan), Om Sharma (Anupam Kher) and Javed Siddiqui (Boman Irani), three close friends in their old age, set out to climb Mount Everest. Going through the heavy shock, they want to pay tribute to their alike friend, Bhupen (Danny Denzongpa), who has passed away being uninformed of his last day. The plan to go beyond the boundary of limitations is left behind in the form of spoken words and available tickets. After crossing the age of 60, they have to win over their typical mind first to fit in medically. The public intention of Amit is strong, who is a best-seller writer yet a mysterious person in his personal married life. His tricks work out to lay out the plan of the road trip from Delhi to Kathmandu via obstacles of unresolved past, unsatisfactory present and uncertain future.
As old age is expected to be full of flaws in terms of physical and mental health issues, the same is true for all strong characters in Uunchai. Om, a bookseller, is struggling not to sell his old shop, a symbol of old memories. Javed’s personal life is attached to complete dependency on his wife and shopkeeping. The physical fitness gets crossed from the checklist up to an acceptable limit, except for the seemingly more mature Amit. Getting ready to sit longer in the car and trek around 8 hours a day demands mutual support rather than individual resistance. Taking a complete break from routine life is not easy, which is triggered due to the unexpected death of Bhupen. He has still left a lot of questions that his only dear friends who became family try to discover his motivation behind Mount Everest and the solutions to the dilemma they were living with.
While all these three friends might be having laughter together, they have their buried pasts to hold on to. It is where the popular song Yeh Jeevan Hai, sung by Kishore Kumar in the 1970s, still fits in the present circumstances of people’s lives. The imperfections lie within them, but as a trio, they achieve what they couldn't think of before Bhupen left them with sorrow. Friendship is an undeniable motivation for people to move on from almost any undesirable situation. Resistance to changing repeated habits is not easy, even at a young age. Starting any massive journey is not possible without a listening a yes from reliable people. While facing biological and psychological issues, people continue to go through their routine due to having an emotional support system that we call friendship. In Uunchai, these three unsorted friends go through the tiring journey of climbing Mount Everest. Although the oxygen level is reduced by 50%, their courage, will-power and peace of mind upsurge again. During this life-defining journey, they are able to answer the questions that life had thrown towards them a long time ago.
A precious journey made them accept things and move on, just like our simple yet complicated lives are like. Everyone may have weaknesses and issues internally boiling up, but we still learn to live if we want to. There is no single aspect that we are not aware of, be it physical health, mental health, interpersonal relationship issues and joy of living, that Uunchai movie captures our attention. However, when we stay ignorant, we choose to be unhappy. It is about how much we acknowledge the need to change toxic behaviour. It might be harmful to ourselves and others around us in terms of physical fitness and mental well-being.
Either excuses or decisions come to mind when it is time to make transitional changes in life. Living the best life each day is expected when we wake up or go to sleep. With the hope that time will heal the pain, ageing presents side effects too. How we deal with it shows how much we love ourselves and our dear ones. The importance of empathy is prioritized way over sympathy. Understanding someone in a situation presents them with a support system rather than feeling sorry for their miserable condition and leaving them in the same situation with pity. The generation gap is another topic that has been covered in Uunchai, taking a critical tone on misunderstanding fuelled due to miscommunication between the present growing generation and the much more experienced generation with respect to previous decades. More communication is the key to bridge the communication gap rather than building grudges and not talking about them.
Changes occur with time, age and situations that people need to accept sooner or later. Uunchai movie teaches you to live while you are attending one more interesting session to educate yourself about life outside the classroom. Say yes to life and no to toxic habits after you watch Uunchai.
