GUZAARISH would have many firsts to its credit, but one of the most significant firsts for the film would be Sanjay Leela Bhansali making his debut as the music director for his film GUZAARISH. One does not know whether this was the trigger for Sanjay Leela Bhansali to break into an impromptu jig along with his leading lady of the film Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan. One thing is for sure, he has shown that indeed his sense of music indeed is fantastic. The song from GUZAARISH sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, where Ash breaks into a waltz set to the typical tap dance music has caught the fancy of the nation and it has become a chart buster in all the chart lists compiled in different forms in the country.



After all, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one of the few directors who has a keen sense of music and right from the time when he made his debut as the music director with his film KHAMOSHI: THE MUSICAL which was a quest of a couple to find its moorings, using music as the channel vehicle to his much mauled SAAWARIYA, music is one feature that stands out in all of his films. Even in a film like BLACK which did not provide the scope for experimentation with music, it had interesting background music which set the tone for the film.

It is not that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has only a penchant or flair for Western music. His keen sense of folk music as it was announced to the world through HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM, It was probably for the first time where the folk music of Gujarat was woven into the narrative of the mainstream cinema, and was a smash hit, underlining the fact that if the director has a keen sense of music the film is able to make a headway even before it is presented to the audience, as it is happening with GUZAARISH as well. After all, he directed a musical drama based on Mahabharata that got huge success in different parts of the countries around the world.

So Sanjay Leela Bhansali returns to his forte of grandeur, of themes based on extensive musical extravaganzas. One only hopes that the new flair that Bhansali has displayed in his oeuvre of being a music director would not be relegated to his films, but he would be benevolent enough to let other directors also enjoy his flair of music.
