Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for his artistic movie. His art might be in different taste but the way he brings out the feeling is what people love. Hrithik is known for his class acting, though he comes in few but gives a mark in every. Earlier Sanjay’s ‘Saawariya’ and Hrithik’s ‘Kites’ didn’t turn out well but, these two combos got united in a film called ‘Guzaarish’, which brings you a fragrance flavor and will mesmerize you.
It’s the story about one magician, Ethan Mascarenhas (Hrithik Roshan) who met with an accident from one of his dangerous magical trick which went wrong. He turned into ‘Paraplegic’, which defines as half body getting paralyzed and here Hrithik suffers from waist to toes. Ethan then left his magical world and became a ‘Radio Jockey’ in one of the FM Radio Station who talks on hope, laughter and also was teaching his viewers some magic tricks. He was running this show from last fourteen yrs now and nobody among the viewers knew that he was a paraplegic patient. A lady Sofia (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan), who is a nurse, was taking good care of Ethan as he was suffering from paraplegic. Ethan and Sofia were also sharing a secret love between them. Now the turning point comes when Ethan gave a petition to the court on mercy killing of himself, which means a request to do a self-suicide, on his 14th anniversary of his accident. This news shocked everybody, and especially to Sofia who was highly stunned on hearing this. She opposed strongly in front of Ethan but then all of a sudden Omar (Aditya Roy Kapoor) enters Ethan life. He requested Ethan to teach him some highly qualified magic tricks, and some serious appeal he agreed in to do so. But Aditya Roy Kapoor had some other plans for Ethan, and this brings out some very special change in Ethan’s life.
Direction / Technicalities:
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one director who is always known for his art which he uses in every of his film. No matter how his film is, hit or flops, he always tries to show people something different. So in Guzaarish also he remained on his trademark. He had done an astounding job here and each and every scene of his was just simple remarkable. Some of his geniuses were where Hrithik’s magic act goes wrong and he met with a serious injury, Aishwarya’s eruption towards the end, the courtroom sequence when Hrithik puts his petition, Sanjay’s treatment over paraplegic disease, and not to forget the most amazing finale. Don’t just miss the finale part of this film, it’s worth watching.
Story and screenplay written by Sanjay itself was amazing and brilliant. Also the dialogues were magnificently written, but the credit all goes in its delivery part. In all we wish from Sanjay to see more of his written stories executed in films. Rest of the technicalities such as editing, cinematography, and etc. were just simply superb and classy. Music of the film is fabulous and it is already going super hit worldwide.
Hrithik is back in action, and we just simply wish him to see not only in his home production but also in various other such films. His performance, his dialogue delivery, his style, his attitude, hi way of mannerism style, and his everything is just above five out of five. As a paraplegic he was so perfect and didn’t give to thought of any negative comment to any critic’s people. Not to forget that his highly hyped hair style was strongly appealing in the film, and for this all credit goes to Mr. Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Aishwarya has worked second time with Sanjay sahib, previously in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, and she was as good as she is always. This time her performance was speaking more rather than her beauty. And to bring out such performances from Hrithik and Aishwatya, Sanjay needs a big pat on his back for that. They delivered their best that’s their talent, but to bring out the best from best is what the art Sanjay has in his pocket. Aditya Roy Kapoor is the new charming boy in the industry, and he is infact so lucky that he got the chance to work twice with Aishwarya Rai on the very start of his career, which generally many superstars are very eager to work with her at this point of their career. Aditya Roy Kapoor is having a very bright future in his hand.
But where I am doing a good appreciation for this movie on a continuous base, I also may not to forget to talk about some negative points in the movie.
1. Though Hrithik and Aishwarya share a wonderful chemistry between them, as they both were stunning in ‘Dhoom 2’, Sanjay failed to create that chemistry here. Though they both were good together, but the script didn’t support their chemistry.
2. Secondly, some of portions of the script were unnecessarily prolonging the story which can be edited if worked out properly.
Guzaarish is the film for classy people and who loves some deep and touchy film with extra flavor added by Sanjay. It’s not some rom-com Yashraj type of love stories but it’s an unusual love story told in a beautiful though in a different way. A must watch!
