Though it’s an inspired version of “The Miracle Worker”, still its quite different in characterization and treatment. Rani does a fine job as the blind student but Amitabh Bachhan does even better as her teacher and then as the old diseased man. The best part is the art direction and background music. The film makes you stand with respect as its ends. The top most performance is by the girl child who is just superb and is a complete pro in her art. The English Black & White original is quite different in treatment and script too. But still it stands intact as the original and moreover its also based on a true living personality. So go for both the movies as the two equally are masterpieces in their own.
