Scenario1: “Hi, I am using MacBook for past few months. Today, I was watching a movie, the screen freeze with weird red checkerboard pattern all over. I rebooted multiple times but the result was blank while screen. I am unaware of what went wrong. Is it possible to recover frozen MacBook? Please help me out...”

Scenario2: “My MacBook has been frozen and I can't turn it off. I tried power button as well as control and command simultaneously with no result. I can move the mouse but cannot do anything when I try to give any command. Any kind of suggestions are welcomed...”

Scenario3: “My cousin was managing to change the color display of my MacBook. After sometime system preferences became completely unresponsive whenever I try to open it. When I tried to restart the laptop, it got struck on white startup screen with the logo in center. I need to fix it as soon as possible. Please help me with better suggestions.”

The following session will help you deal with frozen MacBook:

Using force quit: Force quit in MacBook is common way. Choose Menu → Force Quit or press Command+Option+Esc. A screen will appear, and you can click on name of deviant application

Forcing restart: Force quit usually rescues minor issues, but its not effective all the time. If that is the case, you have to reboot your Mac. The assumption here is your frozen MacBook will not permit you to start over in a conventional way by selecting Mac menu and then Restart.
