Manzil
6 February 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I watched "Manzil (1979)" recently and what struck me was Amitabh Bachchan's acting prowess. This movie is of the period when the thespian was labelled as "an angry young man" and the other movies showed him as such. But this movie is so different. So much economy of movement. An entire song is shown as the actor playing the harmonium with downcast eyes and barely moving his hands. His body language is terrific even when his back is towards the camera. All his dialogs are in close-up and his face changes expression in seconds. It may not be a very well known movie of his but the utmost subtlety with which Amitabh Bachchan acts (does he really ?, it never seems so)proves beyond doubt that he was and still is miles ahead of his contemporaries.
