Movie Black has proved its popularity, when Time magazine selected the movie in its Top Ten list in 2005. Black starring Amitabh Bachchan and Rani Mukherjee in lead roles and directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali was a critically acclaimed movie in India.
It had been a challenge, a journey against popular beliefs, an experiment once again, for the director whoâ€™s always dared to tread the untaken path. â€œBlackâ€, he says, was his most fearless film, and now it has all paid off.
Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Rani Mukherjee, Ayesha Kapoor
AN UPLIFTING JOURNEY OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT
It takes a brave man to make a Bollywood movie without colour and songs, but that’s exactly what top Indian filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has done with Black. In his boldest movie to date, Bhansali directs living Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan as Debraj Sahai, an alcoholic teacher who transforms the life of an Anglo-Indian deaf-blind girl played by reigning screen queen Rani Mukerji. Acted predominantly in English with a smattering of Hindi, this is a film with universal appeal.
