Seven Pounds

I watched Seven Pounds yesterday, the new Will Smith movie. The movie is based on Tim Thomas (Will Smith) who embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by forever changing the lives of seven strangers. Will Smith did a splendid job in this emotional Drama movie.

Seven Pounds

Here is the synopsis of the movie:

“Once, Tim Thomas (Will Smith) was a gifted aerospace engineer with a beautiful wife and a lovely beach house. Then, while using his cell phone while driving, his car wandered across lanes and he became responsible for the deaths of 7 others, including his beloved wife. Unable to forgive himself or raise the dead, Tim sets out to give “pounds of flesh” that will give new life to seven deserving individuals to make up for the seven lives he destroyed. Just as Antonio would have to die to pay Shylock the “pound of flesh” he demands, Tim intends to kill himself to atone for his sins. His brother Ben (Michael Ealy), who works for the IRS, is deeply concerned about his state of mind. Tim steals his brother’s IRS ID to access the IRS database and to find and meet people who he believes worthy of his gifts which includes body organs and material possessions. Holly Apelgren (Judyann Elder), Ezra Turner (Woody Harrelson), Connie Tepos (Elpidia Carrillo) and Emily Posa (Rosario Dawson) are among those whom he identifies to help. Furthermore, Tim assumes his brother’s identity of “Ben Thomas” to personally investigate these people and verify that they are indeed the right people he should help. He has a plan for when he identifies his 7 beneficiaries that requires his best friend Dan (Barry Pepper) to see that his wishes are carried out after he is dead. Tim’s plan threatens to unravel when he begins to fall in love with one of the people he is trying to help.”

Big Cinemas, Chandigarh

I watched Seven Pounds yesterday, the new Will Smith movie. Though the movie was good and Will smith did a splendid job but the new Big Cinemas multiplex wasn’t much of a delight to watch a movie in. Their staff doesn’t seems to be professional at all, my friend ordered a pepsi which came without any fizz & only the sweetener and even the replacement one wasn’t any good. When we prompted the staff to exchange it with another item, they simply refused to do so. Finally, the manager jumped in & tasted the pepsi & claimed it to be fine but after talking it out with him, we were able to get a can of Diet Pepsi. After this, when the movie started, the screen though seemed comfortably big but uncomfortable seats were a downside. Infact, at a point of time, we were also able to hear the song from another movie (Delhi 6) from the adjoining Audi. Overall, I will rate my experience only as 2/5 as far as the Big Cinemas multiplex is concerned.
