Dialogues,direction,editing and cinematography review
Simple dialogues and nice editing and cinematography. Ketan mehta direct this movie quite well in first half and little bit slow in second half.
Nawazudin siddhiki is a great actor in natural type of acting. This story is based on true life so the character of Manjhi can played two actor Nazuddin siddhiki and Irfan khan . Nawazuddin siddiki is get the role and done extraordinary in this movie. He really looks likes a real manjhi.Radhika apte is good. Tigmanshu dhulia as mukhiya played a really fabulous role in this movie. He is hidden package of the movie.

Last word for Manjhi the mountain
This is a real story if you like biopic then defiantly watch this movie in your nearest theater. If you don’t like biopic then you can wait for dvd . Critically awesome creation of ketan mehta. Many critics gave 4.5/5 . ReferencesNdtv movies: Manjhi review
Director and co-screenwriter ketan mehata brings the stranger-than-fiction true story of mountain man dasharath manjhi to the big screen with aid of dollops of drama.
This approach, which liberally draws upon the Bollywood narrative idiom in structuring a tale rooted in harsh reallity, might mak Manjhi – The mountain man more accessible to a wider audiance.
Hindustan times: Manjhi review
Manjhi is also one of the most touching and inspiring love stories in Bollywood. Married in childhood, Dasharath and Faguniya hardly spent four-five years together before the dies. The bond that the duo develops during that short period can be clearly seen as the reason behind the 22-years old long struggle.
Times of India : Manjhi review
The film starts with a monologue between a man , Dashrath(Nawaz) and a mountain.
Indian express movie review
Nawazuddin siddiqui strains every sinew, and remains consistensly watchable despite the shift in tone. But even he cannot make the film soar
koimoi: manjhi review
What could have been a bland and boring representation of true life story . Turns good on signature dialogue shandar, zabardast and Zindabad.This inspiring tale is appealing and glad brilliantly executed. Manjhi is like India’s Thor
Bollywood hungama: manjhi review
Manjhi the mountain is good film but will appeal mainly to the nawazuddin’s fan. However the film have potential to growth the word of mouth.
