In the words of popular film critic Taran Adarsh, Guzaarish is one of the best works of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. “Guzaarish is special in more ways than one. In my individualistic opinion, it easily ranks amongst Bhansali's best works so far. Just don't miss this one!" he said, adding, “Guzaarish has been magnificently shot. The indoors as well as outdoors add so much to the film. There's no refuting that cinematographer Sudeep K. Chatterjee has created some really alluring and enthralling visuals."
Critics are all praise for Hrithik and his co-star Aishwarya Bachchan. This is what Taran describes the pair: “Hrithik and Aishwarya are seen in a lackluster facade and that's what makes the characters so plausible. While Hrithik is seen sporting a beard and has even put on weight, Aishwarya is seen in sober outfits. In fact, the two actors have gone through a drastic appearance change and both pressurize you to believe that they are indeed Ethan and Sofia."
“Guzaarish is an invigorating tale. Bhansali, as a film-maker, has scaled several notches above his past accomplishments to create a near-perfect cinematic experience. The highpoint of the motion picture is the magnificently penned story of an incapacitated and debilitated man who desires to end his being with dignity. The film seduces the viewer with a strong emotional quotient, soulful music and of course, the crackling and wonderful onscreen chemistry between Hrithik and Aishwarya. Without doubt, Guzaarish is one of the most profound, insightful and enriching dramas of the year," he added.
Well, Guzaarish deals with paraplegia, a complete paralysis of the lower half of the body caused by injury to the spinal cord. Actors like Aditya Roy Kapoor, Monikangana Dutta, Rajit Kapoor and Shernaz Patel play vital roles in the film besides Hrithik and Aishwarya.
Watch out for Guzaarish!
