Ethan Mascarenhas, formerly the world's greatest magician, has been quadriplegic since a performance went wrong 14 years before. For the past 12 years Ethan's health has been relatively stable, largely due to the relentless dedication of his nurse, Mrs Sofia D'Souza. He lives and works at his home, spreading new magic to millions of people with his irrepressible wit and spirit through books he has written and his radio show. But now his internal organs are failing. To avoid permanent hospitalization and machine life-support, Ethan petitions a court to be legally allowed to die. Ethan's request - his 'guzaarish' - shocks everyone in his world, but especially threatens his relationship with Sofia, who is the core of his existence. Will Ethan's petition succeed? How will Sofia respond? Written by sshogben

Take a Bow Mr.Bhansali, this is your Jewel Crown
19 November 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I watched Guzarish a good 24 hours back and I am still not able to think anything else except the movie. This is a rare piece of art.

Hrithik has raised the bar for himself after this performance.His eyes does all the talking and he has completely gone under the skin of the character. Aishwarya, as usual, does justice to her talent.

Bhansali has woven some wonderful moments together in this rare piece of art, which deserves appreciation. Every frame is beautifully presented and it works like a visual treat to the audience.

Thank you Mr.Bhansali for giving a film which will be remembered for its quality and not the numbers on the box office chart.

I highly recommend this movie to everyone who adores the magic of sensitive cinema.
