The Pursuit of Happyness

I watched the movie few months back, "The Pursuit of Happyness". At the beginning the main attraction for me was Will Smith and the title itself. :-) But when I came back, I had that movie all over my mind. I have cried watching hindi movies but hardly any of them made me think even after 3 days. The movie was wonderful, Will Smith was as usual handsome and his son is cute. His expressions, his feelings especially at the end are so real and perfect that I fell in love with him again. :-))
"Don't let anybody tell you you can't do something. Even me," Chris commands his son, in one of the screenplay's rousing speeches, which shamelessly tug the heartstrings. "You gotta dream, you gotta protect it... You want something? Go get it. Period."
How many times do we dream and how many times do we pursue our dreams to come true? Is there any limit as how long we can fight to get the things that we want ? I think I havent tried and tested my limits yet. Or may be I wasnt too strong to follow the rough path. Sometimes I think things came easy to me. Yes, there were rough patches and hard times, but then again it was just the stupid mistakes I had made. There wasn't any dream or a path to run for. It was just passing the days as they come. Its been almost 6 months seeing the movie and I still do not have that 'One dearm' I always want to dream. Let me see if I ever come across it....I'll let you know. :-)

Vidya,
Had never seen your English blog. And when I read this one today, I couldnt help smiling since I had also posted about this movie on my English blog (http://monsieurk.blogspot.com/2007/04/pursuit-of.html)

Anyways, hope to read more of your stuff in English.
