It's a little weird that there's a "Bollywood Forrest Gump" in production when this exists.

Actually, that's not fair. This is a better film than Forrest Gump.

This is one of my two or three very favorite Indian films. It's big-hearted and sentimental in a way that's wildly out of sync with US tastes, but I loved it.

This review from The Guardian pretty much nails it.
the kind of package perhaps only Bollywood could now pull together: a movie that feels calculated in its grand design, and yet which plays as wholly sincere and heartfelt on a scene-by-scene basis.
