12 Angry Men (1957) (English) (Mini Review)

                               Director : Sidney Lumet
                               Genre    : Drama
                               Cast      : Henry Fonda,  Lee J. Cobb and Martin Balsam

     12 Angry Men  is a 1957 American drama film adapted from a teleplay of the same name by Reginald Rose.It is one of the best screenplay ever written in Hollywood.

95% of the movie happens in a single room.It's about a case where a small boy is accused of his father's murder.And the decision has to be taken by these 12 juries whether to punish this boy or not.When the movie starts it's a bit boring for first 10-15 minutes.But then the drama(here the case details) unfolds and these 12 different men analyse the proofs in their own ways.The story gets really interesting and turns out to be an 'edge of the seat' drama.The director carefully handled each characters without loosing their importance.

This movie comes under the classic category.It was released in black n white first and then after years, collector's edition DVDs were released in color.Watch it fully,it's worth and you will never regret watching it.It's a must watch for pure movie lovers.
