I’m not a big Bollywood watcher, but I watched Guzaarish again, which I like to do when I’m ready for winter to end, or when it’s rainy. I love this film. I also want to visit Goa so bad.
If I had to pinpoint a visual element in this movie I especially loved (and there is a lot to choose from… it’s such a pleasure to watch from an aesthetic standpoint) I’d say Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s styling as Sofia, the leading lady. I want two of everything she wears in this film, down to the hipster specs. Well, the clompy-stompy shoes maybe not so much.
Besides, I think Aishwarya was perfect in this movie, which is made to measure for her personality and presence. IMO, she was made for this sort of womanly, mature roles sort of toughened by life, rather than the fluff-plastic girlish ones she became better known for.
A feast for the eyes
Hrithik Roshan looks hawt with long hair, his face a bit fuller and bearded. He’s sexier and somehow more compelling as a weakened, dying quadriplegic than many other actors moving about. He needs nothing more than those green eyes to say all that needs saying.
And Aditya Roy Kapoor is not bad to look at either, out-of-control afro notwithstanding 🙂
“Sau Gram Zindagi”, my favorite song from the film. Perfectly matches the movie’s poetic-melancholy, bittersweet feel (the story’s pretty sad and sentimental, suitable for inducing therapeutic crying). In fact, I loved nearly every song in the soundtrack in general, which is rare for me.
