Victory Venkatesh is known as a successful remake star. His current film Guru is a remake again. The film Guru is the official remake of Tamil super hit film Irudhi Suttru. The same film has been made in Hindi with the title Saala Khadoos. Rithika Singh is seen in the female lead role. Both Venkatesh and Rithika set on an attractive journey with this Guru. Rithika is considered as a boxer in the film and Venkatesh is going to be seen as a boxing coach in the movie.
The first half of Guru has been interesting and impressive to the core. With lively and realistic episodes throughout, Guru has been presented as a perfect sports drama with right emotions throughout. The songs have been presented well however they lacked interesting tones. With some decent emotional sports drama and an interesting interval block, the first half of Guru has been decent and impressive.The second half of Guru look too much emotional which slows down the film.
Though some of the episodes look dragged, it is Venky and it his character that drive the film completely. The songs have been decent to be seen on screen. The most crucial emotional drama that need to make a massive impact fails to impress the audience. On the whole the second half of Guru has been just ok and lacks interesting drama.
Venkatesh performed very well with intensity in eyes. He is at his usual best and did well in the emotional scenes. Rithika Singh has got an excellent opportunity in the film, and it is a successful debut for her. Rithika Singh has shown variations in her role perfectly and impressed all. Other actors like Nasser, Bharani, Raghu Babu are good in their limited roles. Mumtaj is impressive as a sister in the film.
Guru is a remake. The film was already made in Tamil and Hindi. With not many changes, the makers brought the film to the Telugu audiences now. We may see the same actors in Telugu version as well. Only a few known faces can be regarded in the film. The film completely revolves around Boxing, and there won’t be any disturbances or the distractions. The emotional content of the film is a major highlight.
