Editorial Reviews

The verdant green landscape, the magnetic blue waters and the warm bright sunshine of beautiful Goa is home to one of the greatest magicians of his time, Ethan Mascarenhas (Hrithik Roshan). Presently hosting a Radio Show that spreads magic and hope and laughter through his irrepressible wit and humor to every listener and caller, it is difficult to imagine that this is a man who has been immobilized with a spinal injury for the last fourteen years of his life. Ethan is aided through every moment of his present life by the epicenter of his world - his Nurse, Sofia D'Souza (Aishwarya Rai). Theirs is a love beautiful in its implicit silence, unwavering in its quiet strength and spirited in their constant verbal sparring. On the fourteenth anniversary of his accident, Ethan decides to seek control over his own life. He makes a petition to the Court that shocks the world and leaves Sofia in an impasse that challenges their relationship and their love. Alongside all the tumult that follows, a young man named Omar Siddiqui (Aditya Roy Kapoor) bursts into Ethan's world with a single-minded desire to learn magic from the very best. While on one hand Ethan passes on his magical legacy, on the other, he fights tooth-and-nail to demand the most basic right that every human being is entitled to - the right to his own life. The ethics, the morality, the kindness and cruelty of this mission creates a storm in all the lives that it envelops and its resolution forms the startling conclusion of Ethan's remarkable journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, beautiful film! December 27, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Do not let the subject matter of this film keep you from experiencing it! The limited dark, rich hues and set decoration give it an unwordly, fable-like appearance, and its two beautiful stars never looked better. Hrithik Roshan is to be commended for completely leaving his action/musical roles to let his inner beauty shine through as the character Ethan. And best of all, this is a LOVE STORY which does not preach other issues. Aishwara Rai's Sofia is a new model of cinematic devotion. There may be tears, but they will be tears of joy. I saw it at a theater in Houston, Tx, and can hardly wait to own this copy.....I hope the Blu-Ray version will follow shortly!

This is the first movie from Bollywood I have watched...and I have to say it is by far one of the most beautiful, well acted, well-crafted movies I have seen of late, that just happens to be about a talented magician that ended up as a quadraplegic. He has the same zest for life Christopher Reeve always had.

I would highly recommend it to anyone. There are English subtitles but some of it is in English. The Hero has a radio show and plays american classic music from the 40's. The soundtrack is spectacular and not to be missed. The Female actresses are beautiful and talented.

Enjoy this one. I'm going to purchase it for my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic February 7, 2011
Format:DVD
Ethan is considered the world's best illusionist, but his career is cut short by an accident that leaves him paraplegic. He lives in a magnificent home and is nurtured by Sofia, a nurse who tends to him every single day. He begins to feel very ill, and expresses a desire to be euthanized. His attorney and best friend files a petition to allow his euthanization. The legal process takes months.

Meanwhile, Ethan broadcasts an inspirational radio show from his home, and begins polling listeners: Should he be allowed a mercy killing or not? which causes a public debate. He also takes in a young man named Omar, who wants to be a magician. Ethan teaches him because, though he wants to die, he does not want his magic to die.

Reminiscent of Whose Life Is It Anyway?, with a dreamlike quality. There are visually stunning flashbacks to earlier times in Ethan's life, and his mother as a nightclub singer whose hallmark song is "What a Wonderful World." The color-drenched cinematography is ethereal in a film that is touching, and demonstrates how many lives each of us touches. This is a masterful film, and I'm certain it will become a classic.

I'm not a paid critic, nor a paraplegic or a nurse! I'm definitely not an actor! But this film brought to sense, what one does in the past can or cannot formulate your present. What you do with the present sets the path for your future...what would you like your quality of life to be, in a moment, minute, hour, day, week, year, lifetime! Often times we see suicides for reasons like, debt, drugs, insurance and various inhumane causes (war/politics) and they are self-imposed. This is not such a case. This film made me cry, laugh, wanna get up an dance to 'Udi' and appreciate 'What A Wonderful World' I have seen in my life! You could feel Ethan's rage when Sofia was beaten and taken away by her husband and there was nothing he could do as a paraplegic to help and save her. Or how it tore his soul when he couldn't embrace his loving and supportive mother. You could see the change in Sofia regarding Ethan's feelings and wish and how it changes her life. Who chooses the worth of a man's life and soul? Society, law, religion or the man. In Ethan's case he gave to all; society, law and religion...and nothing in return replaced what he truly was, a man with feelings, emotions, wants, needs yet would never feel them again. He could imagine, but imagination does not fill the soul. Sophia saw this and because of it was willing to give her own life for his. Such profound love, one to another. It goes beyond the soul with a promise of forever! I encourage others to view this film and give it great thought. How would you handle this situation if you were given such a circumstance?

Roshan and Rai have been blessed with a powerful chemistry and have shown it in every film they have done with one another. They bring realism to a film like Tracey and Hepburn! Goa...beautiful! I'll see it one day.

5.0 out of 5 stars BLOWN AWAY!!! December 19, 2011
Format:DVD
I totally agree with Jill Conner's favorable review. I was completely blown away by the artistry of this movie. It had me laughing out loud at times, and starting to tear up at other times. The acting was excellent, the cinematography was "world class" good. This is the kind of movie magic that American movie makers have totally lost....the kind that inspires and captivates you. Most everything they put out now is putrid and vile....

But Jill was right, dont let the topic of euthanasia keep you from watching this, because it really is a fantastic movie. I usually dont like movies that try to persuade me to their political or moral philosophy, but Guzaarish treated the issue of suffering and "right to die" with some delicacy. They didnt make it depressing. The movie was primarily about realizing the beauty of life IN SPITE of the problems, and trying to live it with dignity. Secondarily it was about euthanasia.
