Iqbal (2005). 2h 12m | Not Rated

“u0026#39;Iqbalu0026#39; is a charming down-to-earth film directed by one of todayu0026#39;s finest directors Nagesh Kukunoor. The story revolves around a deaf and mute young man who dreams of becoming a cricketer. It boasts of a talented cast that includes Naseeruddin Shah (awesome), Girish Karnad (very good), Shreyas Talpade (natural), Shweta Prasad (natural), Yatin Karyekar (decent) and Prateeksha Lonkar (sublime) all delivering memorable performances. Cinematography is excellent and gives a realistic spacious feel to the village setting. Music is awesome and background score is very pleasant as it contributes to the mood. I especially like the uplifting song, u0026#39;Aashayeinu0026#39;.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOn the downside, Kapil Devu0026#39;s appearance is annoying as he canu0026#39;t act and his presence doesnu0026#39;t add anything. Some may feel that the story has been done numerous times before but in my opinion Kukunooru0026#39;s treatment and execution gives it a unique touch. For example, I loved how he portrayed the relationship between the mother and her children and the two siblings. The chemistry between the actors only make their interactions more real. This is also one of the few films that focuses on the sibling relationship. Iqbalu0026#39;s sister is not the typical Bollywood u0026#39;behenu0026#39; who runs around screaming u0026#39;bhaiyya bhaiyyau0026#39; (brother brother). Actually all the characters are very well written.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026#39;Iqbalu0026#39;s main strength is its soul. This is a must see for everyone and one that can be watched with the family. Itu0026#39;s an uplifting movie that brings a smile to the face. Always believe in your dreams and have faith in yourself to make them come true. And to parents, always believe in your childrenu0026#39;s dreams and capability. Thatu0026#39;s u0026#39;Iqbalu0026#39;.”
