The official trailer of ‘Manjhi- The Mountain Man’ got released worldwide and it has already been viewed for more than two lakh times.
The first look of the movie
Produced by Maya Movies , the film is a biopic based on the life of Dashrath Manjhi of Gaya, Bihar which is beautifully played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui. It is about an ordinary man who does something extraordinary in the revengeful and agonizing love for his wife. He spent 22 years of his life carving a road through a mountain and thus the name, ‘The Mountain Man’.
One day Manjhi’s wife while carrying water back home fell down on the uneven terrain of this mountain and the earthen pot in which she was carrying water broke. This was enough to move Manjhi to carve a road through the mountain. However, his wife wasn’t alive to see the fruit of his hard work.
Ketan Mehta has come up with an inspiring plot which is set in the 1950’s of India. It features Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Radhika Apte in lead roles while the music has been composed by Sandesh Shandilya. The film is scheduled to release on 21st August 2015.
