Manchali (1973)

Nice movie to watch..., 7 August 2007
7/10

A fairytale-ish Indian make-over of "Taming of the Shrew." A spoiled rich girl concocts a fake marriage to a coolie to inherit her late father's money. All would be fine but that her suspicious nature and uncontrolled temper, along with her fake-husband's antics, lead to a power struggle between the couple and increasing chaos that leads to an acceptably melodramatic ending.

Honestly, I just watched the movie for Sanjeev Kumar, and you get some great moments with him, but the movie itself was good too. The setup is nice, and the actors are perfectly cast. The movie surpassed my expectations, however, in the comedy that permeates two-thirds of the movie. Of course, kudos to Sanjeev Kumar for this - perfect timing and great believability - and a good support in Leena Chandravarkar.

All in all, though you know how the movie is going to end, it's a nice ride to go along with.
