Not your typical 70's Bollwyood film
25 November 2014 | by ramanycSee all my reviews

Manzil starts out with one of my favorite songs to come out of Hindi cinema; the catchy, "Rhim Ghim Giri Sawan" by RD Burman (sung by Kishore Kumar). From there, the movie takes a decidedly subtle journey thru the relationship between Amitabh and the lead actress. Their chemistry really comes thru the screen. The movie is gorgeous, intelligently written, very watchable, believable, and most shockingly of all: the characters all act reasonably. Even the 'villain' has very good reasons for his actions. The story also deals with class, wealth, ambition, and the blind optimism of people just starting out. It's one of the most underrated films in Old Bollywood and it definitely deserves more attention, especially if a person is a fan of Amitabh, but tired of seeing the same old "angry young man" films he was so famous for.
