Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan already featured together in the movies Dhoom 2 and Jodhaa Akbar before they were approached for Guzaarish. And yes, they did meet the expectations of all the fans and gave spectacular performances in the romantic drama that was released in 2010. Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed the movie that is about a magician turned Radio Jockey (played by Roshan) who wants to end his life after being paralyzed for years after a fatal accident.

The romantic drama has completed 10 years today and we are sure it still remains special in the hearts of those who watched and connected with the heart-rending story. For the unversed, Guzaarish was released in 2010. Apart from Hrithik and Aishwarya, it also featured Aditya Roy Kapur, Shernaz Patel, Suhel Seth, Nafisa Ali, Rajit Kapoor, and others in the lead roles. As the movie has achieved a new milestone now, we look into five reasons as to why it is a must-watch for everyone.

The lead pair

The audience already witnessed the sizzling chemistry between Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai in two of their earlier films. But the kind of bond that is showcased between them in Guzaarish is totally unique. Moreover, they also emerge individually as strong characters in many scenes. Hrithik is fabulous as Ethan Mascarenhas, a quadriplegic man whose only wish in life is to end his suffering. Aishwarya too steals hearts as Sofia D’Souza who understands Ethan’s pain and later helps him ease it.

A stellar star cast

It will be wrong to say that Hrithik and Aishwarya are the only ones who make the romantic drama watchable. We cannot move forward without having mentioned the rest of the star cast who aced their respective parts pretty well. Be it Aditya Roy Kapur who mesmerized us with his expressions and curly hair look or Shernaz Patel, the rough and tough lawyer, everyone has done their bit and made the movie into what it is now. 

Intriguing plot

Guzaarish’s story is very much different from the mainstream plots that are usually picked up for Bollywood movies. Though it does have a romantic angle, the way it is showcased is something that is pretty nuanced as well as magical

Location and sets

For the unversed, the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial is set against the backdrop of Goa. But if you are expecting to see the same old backgrounds of the famous beaches and sunny mornings of the tourist destination, then you are absolutely wrong. The movie instead showcases beautiful hillsides, rivers, and other unexplored places that are enough to leave anyone intrigued. Moreover, the sets remind us of Bhansali’s other magnum opuses like Black and Saawariya. 

Music

Another plus point of the movie is its amazing soundtrack. One cannot miss songs like ‘Udi’ featuring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan or the title track that happens to be a love ballad. Moreover, these songs have been crooned by some of the best singers like KK, Sunidhi Chauhan, and others.

The movie that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has created with "Guzaarish" is very different in content from the usual mainstream and standardized mental diet that is often served in cinema. Maybe it's not a cinematic masterpiece but mostly we don't like to deal with issues like Illness, physical (and mental) disabilities... It is not important that Bhansali's film did not become a so-called blockbuster, but it left a lasting impression on the people who saw it and it stimulated discussions. I am glad and grateful that besides the usual Hollywood, Bollywood ... stereotypical flicks there are also these types of films. Thank you Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Hrithik, Aishwarya and everyone who worked and gave soul and heart on this movie !!!

Another flop in Aishwarya's filmography littered with flops

Anonymous 2 weeks ago

Aishwarya is a flop actress. She's good at piggy backing on other's handwork. When Hrithik couldn't save this mess.

Bhansali has delivered his best work without Aishwarya's burden. Khamoshi, Black, Bajirao, Padmavati. Thank God he hates Aishwarya now lol

Aishwarya and Hrithik have no chemistry. Even Rakesh Roshan said that Aishwarya looks older than his son.

Hrithik did a fabulous job but Ashwariya was looking too beautiful as a caretaker.

Aishwarya fit right in the role of a caretaker. She looks like a kaam vali bai anyways.

I would love to see Aishwarya and Hrithik feature in more movies opposite each other.

They have more onscreen chemistry than aishwarya’s offscreen chemistry with Abhidhek bachchan

I absolutely love the Aishwarya and Sanjay combo and wish that they would collaborate for more projects. When it comes to Sanjays cinema, Aishwarya is the only actress that suits shining in his cinema. You can replace the actor but you cant replace the actress.

Worst Bhansali movie after Saawariya. SLB's best work is Khamoshi and Black. Aishwarya tried to act like Manisha and Rani but fell on her flat face. Good that she bought all types of lame awards lol

Rani copied Charlie Chaplin for Black, as Naseeruddin Shah said. Haha

Enjoyed the film, for the most part. Aishwarya was great. Hrithik was great. The supporting cast was solid. It was Bhansali who dropped the directorial-ball, IMHO.
