Don't judge the book by its cover

Guzaarish.....directed by Mr. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the movie was rubbished by critics and was not doing well in the box office. As with many other people, I too went ahead to conclude that the movie must be boring.But, when I did watch the movie, I realised that the movie did not get the recognition that it deserved. Once again I reminded myself that "All that is good may not be successful and all that is successful, need not be good".The movie touched me in a way that is inexplicable.
