The feel good movie of the fucking decade. A guy with short-time memory who takes polaroids and writes notes to remember stuff, memento style, becomes an amateur wrestler. Yes, that's the premise of the movie, and yet i was cheering at the end like a fool. Starts a bit slow, and the movie goes to a bunch of familiar places, it's the usual underdog/sports story-go-and-beat-the-odds, but because the characters are well written, and the performances strong, i didn't mind seeing some cliches here and there. Sure, the writting is nothing "hard hitting" but the exploration it makes of memory, human relations and following your dreams is genuine and engaging. Not every "human drama" movie has to be a fucking Fassbinder movie, and not every movie has to be something totally "new and different" to tell a good story. While something like Memento wanted to explore the loss of memory thing as a thriller Gachi Boy goes more for the human side. It will make you feel good, and for all the right reasons.
