The movie ‘Seven Pounds’ was released a few years ago. But I somehow managed to watch it only recently. In my opinion, this is one of the best movies in recent times for a number of reasons. First, reel-life characters resemble real-life characters a lot. Second, the theme is so very relevant to our current times. Third, Will Smith is at his very best. His gestures and facial expressions do most of the talking. Hats off to him on his stupendous performance. The theme, characters, situations and locations are such that it feels all the incidents are happening just in front of your very own eyes. The theme is so very unusual and the message conveyed to all the viewers is a very thought-provoking one. A noble soul who wants to help as many people as possible while he is alive and does the same even when he is no more. This puts so many things in our lives into the right perspective. After watching this movie, I felt we are taking too many things in our lives for granted. We need to count all our blessings instead of complaining about things that we don’t have. I wouldn’t mind watching this movie over and over again.
