Forrest Gump  is a movie in which Tom hanks was as his best. The movie includes the life of Forrest a naïve (not worldly-wise according to standards) and slow-witted yet an apathetic fellow who wins over many hearts by his simple and yet philosophical(life is like a box of chocolates) view towards life . The movie incidents spans  his life and witnesses prominent events of  history. There were very touching and poignant moments in the film. One touching moment was where Forrest meets 2nd Lt. Dan Taylor again after the war Taylor now an amputee, he is enraged at Forrest for saving his life and leaving him crippled and changing  his destiny to die in battle like his ancestors.The scene where Forrest learns from Jenny that she had a son from him;and asks her “is he smart” is touching indeed and one is moved to tears 😥 . And when Dan Taylor defends Forrest “nobody calls him an idiot” was indeed a very touching one. Some of the most remarkable dialogs are —-

Jenny : I named him after his daddy. 
Forrest Gump: He got a daddy named Forrest, too? 
Jenny: You’re his daddy, Forrest

“Why don’t you love me, Jenny? I’m not a smart man… but I know what love is.”  🙂
 
“Run Forrest, run!”
 
The synopsis  of Forrest Gump in simple words is that “Life is not complicated as we think ;it is our mindset which makes it more complicated.”
