If you intend to watch a movie with this kind of mood, my humble opinion would be to skip this one and instead go for 'Mar Adentro' or 'The Diving Bell & The Butterfly' (among others). They are far better than this avoidable movie. So the ball is in your court now; decide for yourself. Hope you'll take a wise decision.
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali (whom once again excels in a highly compelling film). Brilliant portrayal of a character that is dealing with not only moral, and social, issues and aspects, but is dealing with a human being's right to his own free choices, and own will power. Powerful story plot that follows with an array of amazing character performances. Hrithik Roshan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shernaz Patel, Suhel Seth, Aditya Roy Kapoor, and Nafisa Ali. Definitely worthy!

The Meaning of death not only bad mean sometimes The death being the only way to escap of Death ( bad mean )
beauty is not a compensation for acting wake up...
The movie truly belongs to Hrithik Roshan as per performance, he is in one word superb, specially in first scene where he, as Ethan, replied to his lawyer friend "sex and a beautiful woman" on being asked whether he want anything else? , he has touch of Jack Nicholson in that expression. Aishwarya was good too, and in the courtroom scene, where she burst before the judge, she was marvellous . And all those small characters played by, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Suhel Seth, Nafisa Ali, etc blends into the movie perfectly . The only thing i didn't like is , Bhansali didn't show all the secrets of Ethan's tricks .. although it can said that the movie is more a story about a paraplegic man than a magician and his tricks (like Prestige) .
Other than performances , The Direction of SLB steals the show . Thanks to awesome Art direction, the movie is a Visual treat to. SLB brings out the old Goa and the whole feel quite well.
Director Sanjay Leela Bansali had made a film called 'Black' once.
Since then he seems to be less concerning about his work.
