Editorial Reviews

From Sanjay Leela Bhansali, one of India's most acclaimed directors, comes Saawariya, a timeless love story based on Fyodor Dostoevsky's "White Nights." Destiny weaves its magical spell when a shy musician's (Ranbir Kapoor) chance encounter with a beautiful young woman (Sonam Kapoor) leads to four unforgettable nights filled with music, passion and romance. Overflowing with colorful costumes, lavish sets and eye-popping song-and-dance numbers, Saawariya is Bollywood filmmaking at its best. Hooray for Bollywood!

Format:DVD
Note: Hindi with English subtitles.

The '07 Bollywood film `Saawariya' (i.e.: Beloved) is one of the most visually stunning films I've seen in quite some time. The storyline is one of those unrequited love themes that we're all familiar with; Raj (Ranbir Kapoor) falls in love with Sakina (Sonam Kapoor) who is in love with Imman (Salman Khan). While Imaan is away Raj attempts to win his way into Sakina's heart while another woman, a local prostitute played by Rani Mukherjee both narrates the love story as an objective observer and plays the part of a forlorn lover who hopes to win Raj for herself.

Though the tale unfolding is as old as time the presentation is inventive magical and totally mesmerizing. The soundtrack is also quite good though not quite your usual Bollywood faire, drift back and forth between festive and upbeat to melancholy and haunting. Well worth a watch for the visuals and music alone. If you enjoyed `Moulin Rouge' than you should certainly appreciate this film too.

Saawariya (meaning "Beloved") is director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's adaptation of Dostoevsky's short story "White Nights". The body of the film is decidedly Bollywood with all of the vibrant colors (the color blue has never looked so good) while the core remains true to Dostoevsky. Bhansali had expressed in an interview that he made this movie in part inspired by watching his grandmother waiting on the balcony every evening for his grandfather to come home from work. How deep is that love? Can it ever be distracted, even temporarily, from its long-standing object of affection? This movie meditates on some of these aspects of love. Saawariya is a musical and should be experienced as such. Here are some reasons why I fell in love with this movie:

1) Beautiful evocative sets that depict a syncretic town visited by different ages and cultures. A town that exists nowhere and yet everywhere. I was initially skeptical of Bhansali's choice of shooting this movie entirely on sets. But after watching the dreamscape of Saawariya unfold, I applaud his choice.

2) The beautiful and innocent Sakina as portrayed by Sonam Kapoor. Her emotive power is expressed through her eyes and she pervades the film as a lone angel awaiting her distant lover. Sonam will go far in filmdom with the right roles.

3) The exuberance of Ranbir Kapoor. Though he tends to overreach himself in some frames, he is mostly pleasant and sympathetic throughout the movie.

4) Excellent supporting and memorable performances by Zohra Sehgal and Rani Mukherjee. Salman Khan is remarkably restrained here and does justice to his brief role.

5) The music, O the music! Haunting, evocative, mesmerizing! After a long gap have I heard such beautiful melody pour forth from a Bollywood film.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Bollywood movies ever March 11, 2008
Format:Blu-ray
I watched "Saawariya" at the cinema and I though it was just amazing.
The best thing about this movie is the amazing sets and landscapes.It's pure art, and what better way to experiance it than 1080p ! Most of the songs are great and mesmerizing, the plot is great although the script could have been better.
All in all this Bluray is a must have for all Bollywood fans who want to experiance a little "masala" in high defenition for the very first time !

5.0 out of 5 stars Saawariya Top Notch in my Books! October 8, 2008
Format:DVD
My life has changed after seeing this movie. I'd forgotten all about magical places until I watched this movie, why?

First, the music is exquisite, lyrics, musicians, compositions, I understand the music was specifically written after the movie was made and therefore it fits like a glove. You will be transported to this wonderland, where beauty and magic converge. Equipped with a family heritage of talented movie makers and actors comes the genius of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. I'm going to follow his productions from here on out. He introduces two fresh heavily talented actors, Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, (both are fabulously good looking) and not related or married to each other as of this writing, they meet and deliver pure magic weaving a story of many dimensions.

A special guest appearance by Salman Khan playing "Imaan", Khan is recognized as the 7th most handsome man in the world, please don't let me see numbers 1 thru 6, I don't want a heart attack. His portrayal is mysterious as he appears in the movie one thunderous night with lighting flashing and thunder roaring, as Sakina (the fragile beauty) who is hypnotized by the very sight of this masculine man who appears like a vision and says: "We have a lifetime to gaze into each others eyes." If you're a woman watching this scene you either faint or scream, like I (and my daughter) did.

Ranbir Kapoor as a new comer seals the deal as one great up and coming actor, he dances, with moves like greased lightening, (his dance moves would make our own Elvis proud). Also Rani Mukherjee, as Gulabji the street wise and lovely woman of the night who tenderly recognizes the love struck "Rock Star" angel in Ranbir Raj and she seems to fall in love herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning! July 9, 2009
Format:DVD
From the very first scene I was sucked into this magical fairy tale story. I cannot remember ever seeing a film this good- A film that transports you into a dream and suspends reality to the very end. Some reviewers say it looks 'fake' or 'dark'. I will say this, the film is more like a Broadway show than your typical movie. The sets are no more 'fake' looking than any scene from Johnny Depp's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' or Jim Carrey's 'The Grinch'. A bad Broadway set looks 'fake' and a good one looks like 'art'. Fortunately this film has some of the most elaborate eye popping sets I have ever seen. If you do not enjoy live Broadway shows like 'Wicked' then yes, you probably will not like this film.

There are some who are critical of the ending- thankfully this is not some 'Disney - Nothing Bad Ever Happens and We All Live Happily Ever After' film. The story revolves around a prostitute who is in love with a dreamer and the dreamer who is in love with a beautiful mysterious lady who awaits the return of her true love who left years ago. If you are looking for a typical Hollywood ending that circumvents the story it's based on you need to look elsewhere. The story also takes place entirely at night, so a lot of the backgrounds are lit in blue or neon or candles- as such, this movie will not play well on a small 19" TV screen in a brightly lit room. If you have a widescreen TV put this on, turn down the lights, and get ready to be transported.
