Manjhi - Movie Reviews

A lighter touch might have made Manjhi - The Mountain Man a markedly more convincing biopic
Manjhi is the kind of film that tries to do too much and ends up doing too little.
BaradwajRangan
Nawazuddin outshines a mediocre biopic
FilmFare
Words of praise seem hollow when it comes to a film that describes a life so inspirational .
At one point in the film, Manjhi the Mountain Man asks the curious reporter who has been visiting him for years, why he complains about the system instead of opening his own paper. 'It's difficult,' says the reporter. 'Is it more difficult than breaking a mountain?' asks Manjhi with a laugh.

Dashrath Manjhi's is an extremely inspiring tale but surely not an easy one to narrate. - See more at: http://www.mid-day.com/articles/manjhi---the-mountain-man---movie-review/16473190#sthash.vq344hJ8.dpuf
The movie is as solid as a rock with various layers of emotion, creativity and fine performance attached to it.
Moviez Adda
Manjhi The Mountain Man carries much promise but it is flimsily executed
REDIFF
his unbelievable legendary love story will touch you deep enough to be both stunned and inspired

MANJHI - THE MOUNTAIN MAN is a good film but will appeal mainl...
Bollywood Hungama
But beyond that, it's simply a love story - a man tearing through a mountain to keep the memory of his wife alive.
DNA India
Nawazuddin continues his dream run with another impeccable act, Radhika Apte is natural, Tigmanshu Dhulia packs the punch, Prashant Narayan and other supporting cast add to the film
Box Office Capsule
Manjhi – The Mountain Man is a good attempt which could have been better.
Talking Moviez
But we’d say that if there’s one movie you shall watch this year, let it be Manjhi
Bollywood.Com
Watch it for Nawaz’s outstanding performance and to truly acknowledge and learn about the true legend Dashrath Manjhi.
Bollywood3
If only the director had learnt a lesson in perseverance and single-mindedness from his protagonist.
Watch it for Nawazuddin's performance, but more importantly, Dashrath Manjhi's awe inspiring self belief.
JAGRAN
Manjhi might not be a great film, it is a great story. It is a story that deserves to be seen; to be known by people all across.

Watch this film for Nawaz and Radhika
Cine Speaks
Nawazuddin Siddiqui Does It Again!
Just Bollywood
Nawazuddin Siddiqui bowls you over with a heart-rending performance!
BollywoodLife
Kudos also to Ketan Mehta for bringing alive on screen the life of Dashrath Manjhi. His story needs to be told throughout the world.
Glam Sham
Net result: a film that is so comprehensively artificial that you'll forget Dashrath Manjhi was a real man and that his is a true story.
First Post
Like Mehta’s earlier attempts, this too is a mediocre attempt at telling an important story.
Deccan Chronicle
Ain't No Mountain High Enough…
Movie Talkies
The direction and screenplay has also been well done.The film is overall a must watch if you want to be inspired by Manjhi’s sheer determination in spite of all odds

अच्छी कहानी की तलाश तो देखें 'मांझी : द माउंटेन मैन'

Shaandaar Zabardast Jindabad. This one deserves to be watched on the big screen.
Bolly Arena
As for the rest, it is perfectly ok to expect a better film, considering the talent involved.

Nerve-racking, sentimental and thrilling
The Indian Talks
But allow us to tell you that while some of you might be carrying a leaked version of the film in your phones, the tale of the mountain man is not meant for touchscreen entertainment.
Deccan Chronicle
I would humbly request all readers to honor the work of Dashrath Manjhi and head to theaters for a watch. This story is worth your money!
