Black

Black is the heartwrenching story of Michelle, a young girl who has lost her eyesight and hearing at the age of two. Michelle grows up to be a violent, uncontrollable and frustrated 8 year old girl, for obvious reasons. Her parents fear that at this rate, she might end up in a asylum. One day Debraj Sahai(Amitabh Bachchan), and elderly alcoholic teacher for the deaf and blind walks into their life. He works his way into Michelle's life, teaching her through often harsh methods what life is and the ways of life. His greatest moment of glory is when Michelle graduates with a Bachelors degree in arts, 12 years after enrollment. However Debraj is living his life in an asylum due to his almost complete inability to remember his past and even how to speak. Michelle visits him wearing her robe and we see glimmers of memory return as Debraj realizes that she has graduated and even does a victory dance. As the window opens to the rain outside, we see Debraj's hand in Michelle's reaching into the rain, and we hear the teacher-student pair say the first syllable of the word "water", with echoes of the scene in which Michelle first begins understanding the meaning of words earlier in the movie. However this time, it is Debraj who is beginning to learn to speak and understand.

Satte Pe Satta

Though Satte Pe Satta takes some inspiration from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Big B (in an interesting double role) and his band of unkempt siblings who straighten their act for the sake of love, invest a lot more spontaneity and snazz to add to its repeat value.

Coolie

As the 'saari duniya ka bojh' bearing Coolie in Manmohan Desai's over-the-top entertainer of the same name, AB was compelling as usual. It's also on the sets of this film that the actor, while shooting an action scene with Puneet Issar, had a terrible, near-fatal accident.
