Such an experience shouldn’t be killed watching online and it truly deserves a big screen watch.

Filmy Full Review

The film is directed by Ketan Mehta who has also directed documentaries, and jointly produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and NFDC India. And the makers should be appreciated for bringing us such an unknown story forward.
A story of a unsung hero and a story that celebrates love, and at each step teaches a lot about life. A story that has the perfect direction, with every scene and situation so alive and real.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
As from the title itself, the story is about Dashrath Manjhi, a native of Bihar who cut through a path in a mountain with only hammer and chisel.
Let’s begin with the films start. It just happens instantly, and by that we mean not abruptly but rather with its fine instant click, the film rolls the audience in its zone.
Any film, even if it has an ordinary story and script, can be made entertaining with editing. Editing is the key, how to go about with the sequence and placement of scenes. So you can well imagine what will good editing do to an extraordinary story and script. This movie had that superb editing which will really involve you deep into its spirit.
The best part of the film is its essence which is captured so nicely, pain and suffering of the lower class, their complaining process and the spirit with which they recover back to their lives.
The movie circumference is true love and this central plot has the right amount of focus and rest is some sub plots. With the right focus and presentation, the love story really strikes a chord with the audience. Being a true story, emotional connect is already there but to present it nicely so as to involve the viewers was important. Emotional connect is very important for films that are inspired by true stories; if they can’t connect with the audience, they fail in their most primary motive and this film succeeds in that. Even the subplots have strong impact and connectivity.
Talking about dialogues, typically Bihari (rural) sorts that makes them lively in itself, plus they are written and delivered by the actors beautifully. The climax you know would be predicatble but its still nice as one waits for whats going to happen next. The only flaw in the climax is it is too easily and conveniently reached.
When you have actors like Radhika and Nawaz, who make you feel as if you are living their story, you expect nothing but the best. They both are effortless and natural, genuine and passionate with their act, and deliver a truly realistic performance. Love to these actors who literally make a film alive. Nawaz will not only win but capture your hearts, hats off to such a credible performance.
Talking about their chemistry, it’s so adorable that those in love will fall back in love again and those not will want someone special in their lives. No people it’s not a fairy filmy DDLJ story, it’s sweet, innocent, simple and above all true.
Tigmanshu Dhulia as the mukhiya (landlord) is very convincing in his role. So is Pankaj Tripathi as Ruab the landlord’s son.
Gaurav Dwivedi as Alok Jha journalist and Ashraf Ul Haque as Magru, Dashrath’s father have their own small roles which they pull off nicely. The focus remains the mountain man so Nawaz has been given all the attention which the actor lives up to in the most commendable way.
