    'Black': a complex rendering of tender emotions that doesn't work as it is

    The truth is that 'Black' by Sanjay Leela Bhansali works better for me if I view it as a biopic: a highly indianized Hindi biopic of the famous blind, deaf and mute author Helen Keller. In that way it's inspiring. As a love story, it's consistently moving: Rani Mukharji and Amitabh Bachchan steal the scenes of romantic involvement and I just couldn't imagine those moments without them. But the truth is that the film works little if we see it as a lively original: grimness is no problem here because it is by design. But not as a biopic, the film works in fits and starts because other characters are just not in place. And the truth is: the film is not a true life story. Micheal drives the film and it's very message home even when the writing disarms it. 2.5/5.
