See the light!!

What happens when you bring together, the most indulgent film director and the two best actors in the industry? You get a masterpiece called BLACK!! BLACK represents Sanjay Leela Bhansali's coming as one of India's finest directors, and Rani Mukherjee's emergence as the numero uno actress in the film industry today. BLACK succeeds for SLB, where Khamoshi failed. While SLB has had his sucess in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Devdas, BLACK is a movie that finally reveals the immense potential of his genius.BLACK is a roller-coaster ride, it is a celebration of the indomitable spirit of a woman. The story revolves around a deaf blind girl, Michelle Mcnelly(Rani Mukherjee) and her relationship with her teacher, Devraj Sahay(Amitabh Bacchan). The story is about her little triumphs, her failures, the fraility of the human mind and its immense power. When you watch BLACK in a theatre you need to sit back once the movie gets over and wait for the feeling to sink in, just the way you would, after being on the ride of your life. There comes a moment in the history of a film industry, when a movie comes that charts the course it would take in times to come. Lagaan did that for Bollywood and was a success in its own genre. BLACK is a success and a redefining moment in Bollywood history. But it cant be classified into a particular genre. It is an adventure, a love story; it is comic and yet dramatic, it wounds you and heals at the same time; it mourns and it celebrates; it makes you laugh and cry at the same time. But these are tears of joy, that you would wish, never stop. BLACK is a joyous occassion which teaches you that eyes are meaningless without light. Watch it, because if you dont, you would be missing something.
