Magical Romance for Hrithik and Aishwarya in Guzaarish
Director: Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Cast: Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai
Set in the early 20th century, this endearing romance is based on Ethan, a magician suffering from limb paralysis and his relationship with his caretaker and nurse, Sofia D’Souza. Ending up in a wheelchair because of an accident that happened when a magic trick went wrong, Ethan decides to take control over his own life. But such a decision leaves Sofia in a situation that challenges their relationship. The ethics, the morality, the kindness and cruelty of Ethan’s mission creates an upheaval in the couples’ lives when a startling resolution forms the conclusion of Ethan’s remarkable journey.
Bhansali has depicted the subject of euthanasia in Guzaarish with great sensitivity. Whilst Hrithik’s wheelchair bound character makes you laugh, there are also tear-jerking moments seeing him plead to end his life. The film details of Guzaarish has been kept under wraps but going by the trailers being screened, the film does bear some resemblance to a Spanish film titled, The Sea Inside (2004). But one thing for sure – with ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, popular stars Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan at the helm, Guzaarish will definitely get a bumper opening at the UK box office this November!
