Film: Guzaarish

3 idiots, My name is Khan, Karthik Calling Karthik, Paa and now Guzaarish, have you observed the trend? I mean bollywood has this special attraction towards subjects that deal with health complications especially the unusual unheard ones. May be it's the viewers, the typical Indian "awwwww" he is about to die reactions that make these directors chose such related storyline.

Anyways coming to what this post is all about, 'Guzaarish' has shades of Christopher Nolan`s Hollywood Movie 'The Prestige', but it also has the Cinematography by Sudeep Chaterjee that has created the magic, I could say fabulous and flawless. It is a visual feast, colors of the movie that will surely leave you dumb stuck.

Either the house where most of the movie is shot or the drive shot amidst Goan "green-blue" tinge frames. The way each and every scene is shoot is simply amazing. You can without any hesitation believe that the hero was indeed the best magician of those times. He plays the role with so much perfection, the way he moves, the way he handles the flicker, makes you feel that you are part of the miracle. One of the best cliches that this movie breaks is that the romance between the couple is not about trees and duets and sex. It is about the eyes, the touch and yes, it is all about the much debated moans.

Go for it if you are not a fan of Indian commercial cinema, for a beautiful painting of a dream and love, for Hrithik's Jazz ball dance, for Aish's Udi song and for those hidden colors that'll leave you color bound and wanting to re-paint your home.
