What do I Conclude after watching Manjhi?
“Manjhi The Mountain Man” as the name says, is a story somewhere related to mountains. Manjhi is the story of a poor man from Bihar. The story is really heart-touching and as always Nawazudin Siddiqui’s acting is awesome. The movie conveys the idea that if you are dedicated to something, one day will definitely achieve it in your life, you just never have to lose hope and work hard. The most interesting thing about the movie is the acting of Nawazudin Siddiqui, he acted in three different phases of life, and in all the phases his acting was very good. It is a motivational movie that in life you have to work hard to achieve anything and nothing is impossible. So Manjhi The Mountain Man is very interesting and I can assure you that it can even wet your eyes. If you love real-life-based stories then you are gonna love this movie as much as I did.
I request every Indian to watch this film in the theater, films like this need praise so that people expect good films from Bollywood. As in India, a film’s success is calculated only by its box-office collections rather than the performances, if this film doesn’t perform well, this great performance will go unnoticed. It is a must-watch and a beautiful movie for all movie lovers and for my readers. I really liked that “itna pyaar karte hain itna pyaar karte hain itna pyaar karte hain itna pyaar karte hain pta nahi kitna pyaar karte hai” dialogue.
This film is indeed one of the best films of this year. Technical aspects like Production, sound, dialogues, acting, costumes, etc are also good. Each department has done a good job. Ketan Sir’s direction is the ultimate. Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte – have done a great job. All the best to the entire team. Manjhi- The Mountain Man – Shandaar Zabardast Zindabad!!! This movie is a wonderful tribute to a visionary who worked single-handedly for 22 years to chisel a path through a mountain so that all the villagers could have easy access to the basic amenities. Hats off to this Legend.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui has completely immersed himself in the protagonist’s character so much so that you can start sensing he is the real Manjhi…This has to be Nawazuddin’s BEST performance to date. He carries the entire film on his shoulders with such grace and dignity…Radhika Apte has done complete justice to her role. Director Ketan Mehta has done a commendable job in putting across this incredible biopic and making sure this inspires everyone. The one similarity between Manjhi and Nawazuddin is the STRUGGLE they endured to enjoy the ultimate success. The very first scene of the movie will give you goosebumps…Nawazuddin has just taken this to a whole new level. After watching it, I am sure you will say – Shandaar Zabardast Zindabad!!! This movie touches the heart and People counted this Manjhi The Mountain Man movie in one of their favorite movies and needs to be seen to feel the enigma of this movie.
This story is a real-life-based story of a man of Bihar Dashrath Manjhi who carved a road through the mountain with the help of his hammer and chisel. The movie starts with Dashrath Manjhi yelling at the mountains and blaming the mountains for destroying his life. The story revolves around the time period of the ’60s. The story is about a poor man who lived in Gehlaur village (Bihar). He ran away from his village at a very young age and worked in coal mines in Dhanbad. After 7 years, he came back to his village. There he met with his wife Falguni with whom he was married in childhood. He really fell in love with Falguni, but her father did not allow him to marry his daughter. So Manjhi took Falguni and ran away with her. After this, they married and stayed happily.
Then Manjhi found work in another village, Atri, which was on the other side of the mountain. One day his wife fell off the mountain and Manjhi could not save him because the hospital was on the other side of the mountain. So he decided to carve a road through the mountain so that no villager has to suffer from what he suffered. He did this alone for 22 years with the help of his hammer and chisel. No one ever helped him. People called him mental, but he never stopped. He faced a lot of problems during this work, but he never stopped. So after 22 years, he successfully made a road through the mountain and thus he was known as “THE MOUNTAIN MAN”.
