Sheer Magic

I saw BLACK finaalllly.. and its sheer magic from the minute it starts to the end.
I cannot imagine the thought process that must have gone into each shot.. and all the actors have excelled themselves..
Hats off to Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

I dunno if others cried, but, I had tears during the family dinner scene..!! - Where amitabh reads a letter by rani mukerjee on the occasion of her sister's marriage..

- a pretty moving scene..

btw, there seems to have been a lot thought gone into the names of the characters also.. ( like Mr. Sahai for Amitabh )

Black movie is totally and fully inspired by English movie 'Miracle Worker' which came in late 1950's.
Ofcourse due compliments to the cast for matching the english movie closely in their acting.

For Indian film industry there is nothing wrong in getting inspired, most of ManiRathnam's movie are inspired. Ayutha Ezhuthu was inspired by movies Ameros Peros and Street Car Named Desire.

Almost everyone has been raving about it. But I have never felt like going into a theatre to watch any movie as soon as it was released. I prefer to wait till it hits the video/DVD circuit since frankly enakku at a stretch compulsory aaga utkaara vechchu padam paarkara porumai poyindhi :-)

Chakra
I guess it must have released there also. Then, time to go and watch it

Anand
Yes, the movie was excellent. Left the reviews to the experts. Just enjoyed watching the beauty of it. How I did not feel sorry for Rani's character at all.

Sriram
I am not changing the template. Maybe the font.. But I have still not settled on a template.. So, there might be some more changes.

Sathish
Even I had tears in my eyes in that scene.

Praveen
No.. I did not cry.. But it was an emotionally charged scene.

Bizzare
Yes, got to watch it now only. Wanted to see this only in the theatre and could not find time till now.

Saranyan
Please go and watch it in theatre.. Its worth it.

Thennavan
There are movvies that can be watched at home.. But there are some movies that need the effects and feelings that only a theatre can provide.

Balaji
Thanks for visiting. Yes, I am from PSBB. are u ?

Lee
I am yet to watch Swades.. will do that soon
Am going to watch Page3 today

Yes, I am from PSBB... the KKNagar branch. Probably way before your time though. I passed out in '88.

Regarding Satish's post about Black being copied from another movie.. well, more relevant than that would be the fact that this is a true story. It is the life story of Helen Keller. And the teacher was one Ms. Anne Sullivan (which Amithab portrays). The fact that someone in real life actually got her degree from such crippling disabilities is amazing.
