The film starts with a monologue between a man, Dashrath (Nawazuddin) and a mountain. Wearing blood-soaked clothes, the diminutive hero admonishes the mountains,(captured beautifully by cinematographer Rajeev Jain) that stretch endlessly before your eyes, saying, “So you think you are too big? Well I’m not stopping till I reduce you to rubble.’

Despite the fact that the film does not boast of having any chartbusting music, the music (Sandesh Sandaliya) is very situational and does not look out of place. Even though the film’s editing (Pratik Chitalia) could have been a bit tighter, it is the film’s cinematography (Rajeev Jain) and the Art department (Nitin Chandrakant Desai) that takes the cake. On the whole, MANJHI – THE MOUNTAIN MAN is a good film but will appeal mainly to Nawazuddin’s fans. However, the film has potential to grow with word of mouth.
