Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movie 'Black' has been selected among Time magazine's top 10 movies, according to an article by

Truly, this film is a masterpiece. The idea of the film is a bit on Helen Keller's life, as the main character in the film (Rani mukherji aka michelle ) is blind and deaf, and also that the methods of learning that she uses, are the same as helen keller ( spelling things out on her hand, typing out her answers etc)

Rani Mukherjee is absolutely wonderful in depicting the role, so is the little girl who plays the child role of rani's character. And of course, the big B is absolutely great in his role of the Teacher, be it strict, emotional, funny or just passionate about his work. There probably could not have been a better actor in this role than amitabh bachchan.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has made some absolutely stunning movies, be it Khamoshi, Devdas, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam or Black, and his touch is clearly seen in the movie, both in the idiosyncracies of Rani's character, and the overall picture that film depicts.

If you haven't watched it, do watch it.
