Storyline

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

Another brilliant movie by SLB
22 November 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Guzaarish , the words says it all , i just loved how the movie was made , this is an different work from all the SLB movie's but he still manage to deliver an outstanding movie. Their were little misfit with the screenplay but we are able to relate with the story later on. Aishwariya Rai shines in this movie , she is mystifying and beautiful , Hirthik Roshan deliver one of the best performance of the year... Guzaarish is a tribute to Christopher Nolan's work with a little mix of Almodovar's romantic touch... Guzaarish is vintage , is an instant classic , we relate to every character , the background scores are amazing... On the whole Guzaarish is the work of an genuine director who never failed to amaze us...
