Blind Side

It's late, almost 2 years. But this has to be told and this is not time bounded. A wonderful concept, brilliant execution and awesome story line. Yes... I am talking about 'The Blind Side', based on semi-biographical story, directed by John Lee Hancock, starring Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw.

I have watched this movie numerous times, and every time I watch, it takes me to the same world, when I watched it first time.

An orphaned kid, Micheal Oher (Quinton Aaron) gets into the family of Tuohys. Love and support from the family to get him into where he is good at, playing football, and accepting him as a part of the family is so touching. Micheal's acceptance of Ole Miss (University of Mississippi) subjects to NCAA investigation. Micheal gets upset by the investigation and leaves the place, expressing his doubts of his upbringing has a hidden motive with Leigh Anne Tuohy.

Sean Tuoghy words to Leigh Anne " We get close to a boy with one short and pair of T shirts. I would do the same, for any number of NCAA investigations" reinstates the belief that keep doing good things you believe in, irrespective of what word thinks about it.

Movie ends with the happy note of Micheal reaching Micheal playing football for Ole Miss and Tuohys staying united.

An inspiring movie with strong message of opening up the heart for the people in need.
