Manji Movie Review 2015
Even after 20 years of Independence, Bihar wasn’t at all considered for the any welfare and prosperity. The Government didn’t have any schools or hospitals in Gelhore region of Bihar where Dashrath lives. He elopes Phaguniya when she is about to marry another guy showing the beginning of the Manjhi’s guts. Soon after few months, Manjhi and Phaguniya gets a daughter & so he starts to earn for his family in the city. There is a huge mountain between the village and the city. One day while climbing the mountain, Phaguniya falls off from it & dies. This is where the movie begins from.
He swears to God “I will break the agony of this mountain anyhow as it snatched the love of my life. It ruined the whole happy family conditions in my small village. I will make a way between the village and city alone.” The circumstances were such that the government was not taking any consideration to make any paths between the village and city for people’s good use. The time of ‘Emergency in India ‘ in 1970s is shown when Indira Gandhi ruled India. The persistence & patience of Manjhi breaking the mountain piece by piece is directed so beautifully that it gives the Goosebumps.
The confidence of his genuinely flowing overloaded hope of crushing the mountain one day shatters when there is drought in the village and no people stays there. He still remained there with a strong will to sustain against the nature and fight. He faces many troubles during that time as there was no water or food for him but he keeps on continue his work by eating leaves of trees underground and drink muddy water.

Manji's faith, trust & hope results in a heavy rain one day in the Gelhore hence the village people returns to their home. The 22 years of his life in just breaking the gigantic stony mountain was a master piece by the person single highhandedly. He faced many illegal and legal government problems but then it was people and media who supported him to ‘Make a Highway’ between his village and city. One of the hidden/secret heroes of India ‘Manjhi’ was termed as ‘Manjhi-The Mountain Man’.
