Movie: Guzarish; Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Monikangana Dutta, Suhel Seth, Shernaz Patel and others; Direction: Sanjay Leela Bhansali; Rating: 4 out of 5.
The film which is based on mercy killing or euthanasia, has a very basic emotion filled right into its basic storyline- that of unconditional love.
This very feeling of true love is perhaps what keeps the world moving. Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has tackled the issue in a very sensitive way thereby, making it a very theme based movie with a very modern touch, not to forget the blanket of love which will make it commercially viable as well.
Hrithik Roshan plays the protagonist Ethan Mascarenhas, who is a very talented young magician, full of life and energy, until one day he falls prey to his own tricks when one of his trick goes wrong thereby making him paralyzed and helpless.
The man then takes up a job in a popular radio station as a radio jockey. He gains instant popularity due to his very positive attitude and a great sense of humor. His rapport with the listeners is something which touches the heart and soul of all. All this continues for at least a decade when he suddenly decides to quit life totally. He goes to his neurologist DR. Nayak played by Suhel Seth, and requests him to allow him for a medically infused death to put an end to his pathetic existence.
The doctor is quite shocked and tries to talk Ethan out of this very cruel act that he wants himself to be subjected to. However Ethan is helped to fight the case by his close friend and lawyer Devyani Dutta played by Shernaz Patel. Ethan’s mom Mrs. Isabel Mascarenhas also gives in to her son’s wishes with a broken heart.
The pathos is evident and there is a ray of hope as Ethan’s nurse Sofia played by Aishwarya. The film has a lot of tearful human emotions.
