Black (Indian film)

"Black" is an Indian film, in Hindi with English (and other language) subtitles. A teacher (Amitabh Bachchan) helps a blind-deaf girl (Rani Mukerji) learn to communicate. The acting is superb, the cinematography also, and the story is inspiring and ultimately upbeat. "Black" is a film that one does not forget. I have a simple rating system for films, and "Black" is the only Indian film I have yet seen that gets a 10/10 rating - ie, perfection. I cannot at the moment think of any other films, in any cinema tradition, that deserve such a 10/10 rating. Don't fuss about not knowing Hindi ... think of the difficulties of a blind-deaf girl, and be thankful you can hear and see this wonderful production.
