Behekta hoon...

I have stated on this blog before that Sanjay Leela Bhansali should not be allowed to make movies. Largely because he wastes so much. And overdoes things.

I have a confession to make. I saw Guzaarish recently on Tata Sky. I hadn't seen the movie when it was playing at the nearest PVR because I didn't feel like watching another Bhansali creation after Saawariya. But I was bored that Saturday afternoon and gave in to the only watchable thing on TV.

And I, well, loved it. Despite Aishwarya Rai (I cringe every time I see or her hubby on screen now).

I had been expecting another over the top tear-jerker from the king of excess, but the film is actually fairly restrained. At least as restrained as a partly overacting Hrithik Roshan can be.

I did like the songs - the lyrics are almost Gulzar-like - and the fact that the movie does not last too long. I liked Shernaz Patel. I loved the tone of the film, whatever that means.

So, and I never thought I'd say this, I wouldn't hate it if Mr Roshan gets some of the Best Actor awards this season. And I would be looking forward to what Mr Bhansali churns out next for us.

Ki tera zikr hai, ya itr hai...
