Guzaarish Movie Review by Movie Critics
Taran Adarsh (BollywoodHungama.com) 4/5
On the whole, 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.Guzaarish is one of the most profound, insightful and enriching dramas of the year.
Guzaarish is a beautiful film for the classes but will face rejection among the masses. It will do excellent business in the good multiplexes and the big cities but not universally as it does not offer the entertainment which the masses look for in a film.
With all its pros and cons, here’s a Bhansali product which doesn’t match up to his Khamoshi, Hum Dil de Chuke Sanam and Black. For a cushy-budgeted product, it’s strictly average. In fact at the end of two hours and 15 minutes, you’re left with a mindache. Earnest guzaarish: carry a headache pill.
The film tries far too desperately to evoke what Bollywood calls the ‘feelgood’ factor, but ends up evoking more apathy than empathy. Guzaarish starts off slow and beautiful, but gradually, sadly congeals into a wet mess
