is Amazing, Beautiful, and Superb.

For a running length of just 122 Minutes and without a song Sanjay Leela Bhansali has portrayed a complete life of a Blind and Deaf girl in such a beautiful manner, coupled with the stellar performances of Rani Mukerjee, Amitabh Bacchan and Child-Actress. The movie Black is simply amazing, It lets you know the difficulties involved into the lives of blind people, about their emotions,feelings, and about perspective of people surrounding them.

Black is a story of Michelle McNally, who turns blind and deaf after an illness at the age of 18 months, born to an Anglo-Indian family; and Debraj Sahai, an 48-year old bizarre, alcoholic, arrogant, but best known teacher for blind and deaf. He takes up the task, which is next to the impossible of teaching words to the Michelle and yes most importantly the meaning of the words. For her the alphabets don't start with A, but they start with B, L, A, C, and K; BLACK. His unorthodox approach eventually shows signs of success, but he is then diagnosed with Alzheimers disease. It is he who needs support now.

The movie is shot nicely. Though the topic is depressing, the movie keeps the interest levels up. She doesn't realize things in a flash. Rani Mukherjee has done a superb performance, as if she was really born deaf and blind; and Amitabh as if he was born teacher for blind and deaf.
