This is the tender story of two soul mates: eight-year-old Michelle McNally, born to an Anglo-Indian family and deaf-blind after an illness at the age of eighteen months; and 48-year-old Debraj Sahai, an eccentric alcoholic and teacher to the deaf-blind. Debraj takes on the task of teaching the bright but violent Michelle. His unorthodox approach eventually succeeds, but he is diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease just when he is beginning to make progress with his student. Now, the roles are reversed, and it is Michelle who must help Debraj fight the devastating effects of Alzheimer's.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's the details that make the whole thing work, from the performances ... to its deadly honest observations that Michelle's disabilities would create obstacles that would reach far beyond her loss of sight and hearing."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"Bhansali built a visually beautiful film around the story of "The Miracle Worker." It is hard to imagine such an elegant and satisfying film coming from the Bollywood system."
‑ Mark R. Leeper, rec.arts.movies.reviews
