Akshya Kumar comes very frequently to the cinema houses of the town. And, during his visits I do not bother to knock ticket counters. So, it had been quite a long since I had last experienced a Bollywood flick in a cinema house. The appealing getup of Hritik Roshan and the brand Sanjay Leela Banshali compelled me to theatre for what seemed promising- ‘Guzaaarish.’

The starting was very promising. But as the time
increased by, Guzaarish failed to hold the excitement lived at the beginning. Sadly, it couldn’t keep up its words. It has left no room to raise questions over its colorfulness and skin-deep beauty. The lightings, frames and music coordinate better to create like humming in a paradise. But that was just insufficient for a class movie.

Actors have performed well. Minute moments have been well choreographed. The dance and the magician character of Hritik Roshan awe you. Aishwarya Rai has not performed bad. But, in overall, the movie is lifeless. It has raised the issue of controversial euthanasia but it’s just in the surface. This issue of euthanasia lags research and study. So the script of the movie looks very ugly and weak.  

Cinematography has made the outlook of the movie as stunning and powerful as a Hollywood flick. So, the overall impression of the movie is contaminated aaloo paraathaa served at McDonalds; the beauty without brain; a very good answer to the much talked about topic money can buy something but not everything. Banshali should workout more on brain matter.
