Guzzarish gets a thumb’s up…
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘magical’ direction, Hrithik-Ash’s chemistry, and the film’s soulful music, has worked for Guzaarish, which realezed yesterday i.e November 19.
Calling it a wonderful work of art, movie critic Subhash K Jha is also all praise for Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai.
“Guzaarish is Bhansali’s most tender and evocative film to date. It layers the pain of a dying body with the passion of an unstoppable spirit as manifested in Hrithik’s skilled and effortless performance as a quadriplegic who pledges to make every moment of his limited “sau gram zindagi” pleasurable for himself an those around him,” writes Jha, who has given the rare five-star rating to the movie.
The dazzling chemistry of Hrithik-Ash has transformed into something “deep and satisfying” according to Jha. Says he, “Barring Amitabh Bachchan in Black there has never been a better performance in a Bhansali film than Hrithik’s in Guzaarish. He grabs Ethan’s role and makes the dying character come alive in delightful waves of provocative histrionics. And if we’re talking chemistry between Hrithik and Aishwarya, then let’s get one thing clear – this ain’t Dhoom. It’s something far deeper and satisfying.”
Movie critic Taran Adarsh, who has given four-star rating to the film feels that the movie is “special in more ways than one”.
He writes, “Bhansali has worked himself to the grind and his presence is felt in every frame of Guzaarish. There is an inimitable intellect that Bhansali brings to his movies. Bhansali is also known to extract the best performances from his actors.”
Also Sanjay Leela Bhansali successfully tells a complex story in a convincing way. “Only a sensitive raconteur can do absolute justice to a challenging subject like the one in Guzaarish and Bhansali seems the right candidate for an extremely tricky theme like mercy killing/Euthanasia. The story is complex and can only be narrated by a storyteller who has the art of telling stories most convincingly”, says Adarsh....being a human...

Guzzarish has picked up really well…
In the festive season when madcap comedies are all the rage, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dark and broody film Guzaarish wasn’t expected to get a great opening anyway.
The film, starring Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai and directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, had an average, or even below average opening at many multiplexes in major cities. But as the rave reviews began to come in from critics, and the positive word of mouth from the viewers began to spread around, the film picked up in the evening shows.
Multiplexes in cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Pune saw greater footfalls in the evening. The collection is likely to go up further on Saturday and Sunday.
Given the fact that the film has no major competition at box office except from Golmaal 3 which released two weeks back, Guzaarish is expected to do a decent business in its first week....being a human...
