Ketan Mehta’s Manjhi – The Mountain Man Trailer
We’re very big fans of Nawazuddin Siddiqui- well, at least Diandra, Arsaib and I are. I don’t know about Jenna. So that’s 3 out of 4 who watch Indian films. We’re always eyes opened wide with his solo projects, because we’re not always big on his big-star vehicles *cough* Badlapur *cough* Kick.
Writer/Director Ketan Mehta can be hit or miss– people can probably enjoy his 2005 bio-drama-masala The Rising: Ballad of Mangal Pandey [Trailer], but they will likely fall asleep in his 2008-yet-2014-released biographical film on painter Raja Ravi Verma, Rang Rasiya [Trailer]. Here he is with another biopic on an extraordinary common man- Dashrath Manjhi, colloquially known as The Mountain Man for having taken down a WHOLE mountain on his own with just hammer and chisel.
FML, I had to post this trailer just because of that.
The reason for why he took down a whole mountain, which took him 22 years of work by the way, is a spoiler of the film… but if you do end up reading on him, you’ll immediately know.
The Manjhi – The Mountain Man cast is rounded up by Radhika Apte, Pankaj Tripathi, and Gaurav Dwivedi.
