Guzaarish Movie Review
“Guzaarish” right from the word go is a wonderful portrayal of human emotions and suffering of a quadriplegic individual that has been well etched and executed in an aesthetic way for which its director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is best known for. The story might have been inspired from many foreign films but in the end to pull it off successfully, it needs lot of creativity and an equal amount of support from the actors which is in full attendance in this film.
Ethan Mascrenhas (Hrithik Roshan) once upon a time in his life enthralled everyone with his amazing magic skills. An accident during one of his performances cripples him and since then he has been living a vegetable life for the last 14 years. Sophia (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) comes as his care-taker nurse who attends to him every day without a break for the last 12 years. Ethan now to keep him occupied turns into a RJ and operates from his house which gives him something to think over his pitiable condition.
Devyani Dutta (Shernaz Patel) who is Ethan’s lawyer and friend visits Ethan regularly and so is his doctor Nayak (Suhel Seth). For Ethan things seem to be moving from bad to worse and when his doctor doesn’t give good signs about his health, he takes a tough decision for any human being and that is to appeal for Euthanasia (mercy killing). Everyone around him is aghast with this idea and after lot of emotional moments, Devyani goes ahead and appeals for the same. In the midst of all this walks in Omar Siddiqui (Aditya Roy Kapoor) who joins Ethan as the radio programme producer and he too joins the list of people who wish Ethan good luck.
The court does not allow permission for Ethan to end his life and from here on it’s a battle for Ethan to march ahead in his life being in a vegetable state. What happens to Ethan after this and how does his care-taker Sophia and other friends help him is all about in the other half of the movie.
In terms of acting, Hrithik Roshan has done a wonderful job with his expressions. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has for a change put in some effort in her acting and it is nice to see her getting a role where she can prove to her critics that she can also act but the most distracting factor is the dark red lipstick she dons and the tantalizingly low blouse which precariously exposes her cleavage for most part of the film. Shernaz Patel is brilliant in her role and so are Suhel Seth and Aditya Roy Kapoor.
Cinematogrpahy by Sudeep Chatterjee is a visual treat to the audience. Sumit Basu who is in-charge of the sets has brought in the required feel of the film. Editing by Hemal Kothari is good though there are certain scenes which could have been chopped. Sanjay Leela Bhansali after his successful combination with musician Ismail Durbar in his previous films has don the hat of music director in this film. Bckground score by Tubby syncs well with the flow.
“Guzaarish” is a film made for select audience across. As a viewer if you are expecting a masala type romance in the film, then you are to be disappointed. This movie needs patience to understand and feel the emotional battle of Ethan. The movie has a running time of 140 minutes.
“Guzaarish” is a soul-stirring entertainer for the mature audience.
