The struggle of a deaf and dumb to make it through to the national cricket team; It gives a sense of belongingness to see someone like Iqbal, delivering his first ODI delivery. The last scene of movie Iqbal is my personal favorite, rated as the most emotional movie scene I’ve ever seen. Last scene of the movie is a dream come true for a boy; who finally managed to break away the limitations set in society, walls of discrimination through family/ financial problems. This scene shows a huge crowd cheering up Indian cricket team against Pakistan in an ODI. Nasiruddin Shah, the personal coach of the boy in pavilion; Indian cricketers taking ground for fielding, crowd cheering up Iqbal Khan as a flag bearer of the legacy set by Zaheer and Pathan. Somewhere in the crowd is Iqbal‘s family. His father is also seen cheering for his lad, his mother with a peculiar emotional smile and Iqbal’s sister in full joy of seeing his brother on a big stage to perform. There are no dialogues in this scene, only the movie’s background is heard with a different tone.
Then comes the most beautiful instance of the movie, iqbal’s sister full of joy comes forward the the huge boundary fence, to get a closer view of the distant pitch where iqbal is all set to bowl his first ODI ball. While coming to the fence she is seen in full joy, laughing and cheering; but suddenly two drops of tears come to those lovely pair of eyes. That instance gives a complete flashback of what happened throughout 120 minutes of movie. The background theme music plays the role of catalyst and iqbal’s sister Tafiza acted her best; cheering up again after sweeping out tears of happiness. This instance of the scene conditions my mind as I’ve known Iqbal personally and I’m also that much happily emotional at that moment. Indeed, Tafija’s synthesis was perfectly screened to Iqbal’s thesis.
I believe Iqbal’s thesis is inspired from Santiago’s journey in the Alchemist. Santiago was a shephered, Iqbal too had to graze his buffalo’s daily. Santiago met The Alchemist in the oasis. Shreyas Talpade’s discovery of Nasiruddin as a former cricketer was like finding oasis in desert only. Loosing everything and finding alternate ways were indeed the alchemist’s way of transforming metal to gold. Like Santiago, Iqbal too had lucrative options to end up his dream for tangible and available benefits. Indeed, the whole Universe conspiracy to make one achieve his desperate dream supports all synthesis and thesis of TheAlchemist in Iqbal.
“yaar DJ! Main to kuwara hi mar gaya” is another such emotional scene from movie Rang De Basanti. Sharman Joshi spoked the above quoted words to Amir Khan before dying due to bullets received on his chest. That guy was not that brave, but a real good humorous friend to the group. His death with a smile was inspirationally emotional.
That death was a martyr’s one, the movie had wonderful simulation of BhagatSingh’s time with the scene in 2005. This was an achievement for both the above movie directors, who first made the characters as someone one’s own; and then their achievement/tragedy gives an impact to some specific corners of heart.
The climax of Waqt- race against time; has the same emotional intensity. Akshaya Kumar; the irresponsible son asks people over National Television to donate one moment of their lives so that his father Amitabh can witness an important moment in his life. Altogether it was an innovative concept that someone survived few more moments before a pre-estimated departure from life. That Speech from AkshayaKumar; was another great touching climax. full creditable!
