Having read the biography of Sanjeev Kumar recently, I was inspired to watch 'Koshish' (1972) - a Gulzar movie. It's a movie about two deaf mutes Hari (Sanjeev Kumar) and Aarti (Jaya Bhaduri) and how they marry and make a life together.
Sanjeev Kumar is brilliant with his eyes and elevates it to another level. I liked the way Gulzar brings in Om Shivpuri, a blind man, into their lives. These two cannot hear what he is saying and he cannot see what they are saying - and yet - as the son says, they communicate perfectly with one another. Asrani was rather loose and I wished they did more with him - suck out like a sore thumb. The first child's death was rather unnecessary but those were the times. I liked the end though when the son refuses to marry a deaf mute himself - and Sanjeev Kumar gets mad at him. How could he, he says, when you were born to deaf mutes?
Glad to have knocked it off my list. And yes, if you haven't, watch it.
