Sanjay Leela Bhansali likes to create his own world within worlds.
Sonia Chopra, SIFY
Here is a filmmaker who needs a playwright -- and, in equal measure, an occasional slap on the wrist.

Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama
Bollywood appears to be inclined towards exploring rare illnesses/disorders/disabilities, with directors casting megastars in characters to raise awareness about the lesser-known ailments.
Taran Adarsh, SIFY
And for that alone, take a bow, Mr Bhansali.
Sukanya Verma, Rediff 
They called him Merlin and anointed him the best magician. But Ethan Mascarenhas (Hrithik Roshan) has very little magic left in his life after a near-fatal accident that leaves him paralysed and confined to bed for life.
Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India
Sanjay Leela Bhansali has positioned himself as Hindi cinema’s poet of pain. His movies are operatic and highly melodramatic. But over the course of six films, the worlds Bhansali creates have become increasingly sealed off and removed from any known real

Bhansali throws a pleasant surprise by opening up 'Guzaarish' within 10 minutes. He doesn't beat around the bush and instead sets the film's context (mercy killing) pretty quickly. The entire back story of the central protagonist (Hrithik Roshan) is told in on and off flashback sequence that not only looks justified but also comes across as quite simple. Moreover, despite a theme that has been perceived as dark, gloomy and painful over the last few weeks, 'Guzaarish' has enough humour in the narrative to turn into a heart warming affair rather than a sad saga.

Unfortunately, the impact is not as powerful as it could have been. And I refuse to be told, “Its one for the intellects.” That is hardly the truth. Guzaarish would have been a film more universal had it been perhaps more if it the issues had been handled
