the word or what

The film 'Black' (2005) by Sanjay Leela Bhansali made me rethink about my second post ('why the word?'). The scene in which Michelle realises the meaning of words was wonderful. Words had so much importance in that instant. I thought i was wrong about the idea i had about words.

As the film proceeded, the bond between Michelle and Debraj was highlighted. What i noticed was that Mr.Debraj reflected each and every expression of Michelle and communicated it to others. That was when i realised i was wrong again, making it clear that i was right about what i had written in the second post. Michelle did not communicate with Debraj using words, but still entirely expressed herself. Every idea, opinion and thought was perfectly understood by Debraj. This was what i was trying to say in my second post, understanding directly what is in the mind rather than waiting for it to come by word.

'Black' is one good movie. For those who have not yet watched the film, read this post again after watching it.
