Life's battles don't always go To the stronger or faster man, But soon or late the man who wins... Is the man who thinks HE CAN!!!

Three alphabets to describe the visual delight called Guzarish. Just returned after watching the experience & was floored. In every department Sanjay Leela Bhansali has scored this time. Each frame, each actor (few but each one just Perfect) , every song, every dance by Hrithik, the one dance by Aishwarya (God! She is truly a director's actor).....the list can be endless.

What touched me personally was the brilliance of the actor in Hrithik. He does such little work & makes sure that he gives it his all. With his very first film, he has made sure that he left an impact. He is an actor who has honesty written all over his face. Every nuance of facial expression is best used that you can empathize fully with Ethen Mascaranes. Hrithik shows us that just with an expressive set of eyes, smile & a face that can speak a thousand words you can still make yourself understood. Here is an actor who is above box office & goes by his heart.

Credit should also be given to Aishwarya Rai. May be its the sheer brilliance of Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He is always able to bring out a great actress . She becomes so much the character that she too speaks more with her controlled dialogue delivery and her awesome eyes. Passion all controlled & the only time she let go of herself, she did it with gay abandon..... It was a different Aishwarya I saw here & I liked her.

The final credit to the writer, producer, director & music director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He extracted brilliant performances, gave Goa a different look, a period feel, a surreal experience for the audiences & made sure left a lot to the imagination of the viewer never stating the obvious. He knew his audience would be able to understand what he wanted to say. Thank you for not underestimating us Mr. Bhansali. Love you for this!

Hats off to a very honest presentation of a story touchingly told. We sure understood that life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the number of moments that take our breath away. Guzarish sure is one such.

Watch it sure you too will come out saying "WOW"!
