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.

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.
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.
While searching Youtube, I've accidentally stumbled upon the song 'Smile' by composer Charlie Chaplin. The haunting video clip moved me; so, I've decided to go ahead, 'take the plunge without the parachute'(quote/unquote by Ethan Macaranhea) and ordered the DVD.
Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are exceptional gifted actors. They can 'act' without much 'moving', the expression in their eyes, the shake of their heads, even the silence speaks and convey message. The setting was meticulously done: the big mansion with its great halls, lots of green plants clinging to the fertile damp soil, metaphorised its owner's strive to live despise his condition. The music in the film was beautiful, haunting, sad and joy at the same time. The climatic music at the revealation scene was poignantly done. Great cheer to director Sanjay Bhansali!
And the dancing! Ah, what can I say? Hrithik Roshan is .. WOW! I was watching the movie when my mom walked in at the scene Hrithik danced to his magic act, and she asked 'Who is this great dancer?'. The way he has expressed himself through his dance movements is divine! a devotee to the performing art. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's flamenco inspired dance was sensous, joyful, captivated and how's she executed those hand dance movements is beyond me!
I was enjoyed 'Guzaarish' with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hrithink Roshan so much that after I finished with 'Guzaarish', I searched and also ordered DVD 'Jodhaa Akbar' so that I enjoy their talent once again in different setting.
