Manjhi The Mountain Man
Director: Ketan Mehta

Audrey Hepburn Once said,”Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!
If you have decided to do something in your life, you can do it. There is one dialogue in “Manjhi The Mountain Man” “Bhagwan ke bharose mat bathiye, kaa pata bhagwan haamre bharose baitha ho.” (Don’t depend on God. Who knows, maybe God is dependent on us.)”
Idea of breaking a mountain seems impossible but Real Life Star DASRATH MANJHI has done this task possible. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is in lead role of Dashrath Manjhi, who broke a mountain for the lost love. The Bihar State Government declared the film tax-free. Manjhi – The Mountain Man is a 2015 Indian biographical film, based on the life of Dashrath Manjhi. Manjhi, widely known as the “Mountain Man”, was a poor labourer in Gehlaur village, near Gaya in Bihar, India, who carved a path through a mountain using only a hammer and chisel. The film is directed by Ketan Mehta, jointly produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and NFDC India.

Direction : Ketan Mehta has captured the best scene from 1950-60’s with related characters. You can not ignore the romantic scene between Nawaz and Radhika in “Manjhi The Mountain Man”. Before interval story goes very slowly, but that was the necessary part of the story. Ketan has taken the big risk for making a biopic on Dasrath Manjhi, we have to congratulate for this.
If you are a big fan of Nawazuddin Siddiqui , you should go and watch this movie in a big screen not on pirated version. And we would say that if there’s one movie you want to watch this year,Manjhi The Mountain Man. Manjhi: The Mountain Man is a true inspiring story of love, passion and grief.
