Khamoshi: The Musical is a critically acclaimed Indian Hindi musical drama film which was released on 9 August 1996. The film starred Nana Patekar, Manisha Koirala, Salman Khan, Seema Biswas and Helen, and marked Sanjay Leela Bhansali's directorial debut. The film won several awards, but flopped at the box office. This movie is about Joseph (Nana Patekar) and Flavy Braganza (Seema Biswas), a deaf and mute couple in Goa. They have a baby girl, Annie (played by Priya Parulekar as young Annie), who is healthy and is able to speak and hear. A few years later they have another baby, a boy named Sam, who is also able to speak and hear. Annie's life is divided into two worlds — one with her parents and the other of music, which she loves. A few years later, after the tragic death of Sam, Annie's (Manisha Koirala) life is shattered and music and singing fades away. When Annie grows up, she gets in touch with music once again — with Raj (Salman Khan) whom she falls in love with. Wikipedia

Audience Reviews for Khamoshi: The Musical
A Goan rhapsody with true music ringing to the ears, a silent tune ringing both on our ears as well as music, a silent visual drama going on (but surprisingly with no grandiose), this remarkable piece of utmost magnificence is modernism and simpicity with a sincere approach. It was a Non-Bhansali film created by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Manisha Koirala and Salman Khan weaved out magic into their parts, and Nana Patekar was (although reduced to a minor supporting character) so good! It was a rare perfection on Bhansali’s part. His directorial debut it was!
I am going with 4 stars for the unmatched grace of 'Khamoshi'. Its a little film which is priceless looking at the times it released.
