Behind the screens
Victory Venkatesh who has become choosy and is coming with different entertainers,starring in the remakes of hit films is coming to entertain movie lovers with Guru,remake of Hindi-Tamil bilingual entertainer Sala Khadoos.Let us see what impact the film made on movie lovers.
Boxing coach Aditya Rao (Venkatesh) gets shunted from Sports Authority of India (SAI), Delhi to Vizag due to clashes with head coach Dev Khatri (Zakir Hussain).
Aditya Rao much to his angst finds that in Vizag, junior coach Punch Pandu (Nassar) promoting his own students who don’t know abcd of boxing. Aditya Rao much to his delight findsout Ramudu aka Rameshwari (Ritika Singh), arrogant sister of Lux (Mumtaz Sorcar) talented enough to shine if given training.
To findout whether he can make the arrogant Ramudu win the World Boxing Championship against all odds, watch Guru on screen.
Venkatesh worked hard to sport a new look. He looked macho as a boxing chief and his dialogue delivery, body language and expressions are terrific. He played his role to perfection bringing variations as a tough uncompromising no nonsense coach and then as a frustrated boxer.
Ritika Singh stole the show with her powerful performance. The expressions she showed as a girl suffering poverty, arrogant rag picker and boxer who fight against the system is mindblowing. She elevated the film to new level with her performance. Her dialogue delivery,expressions and body language are ultimate.
Nassar performed well in his limited role. Others like Raghu Babu,Tanikella Bharani,Mumtaz,Zakir Hussain performed accordingly.
Sudha Kongara came with a different film to inspire many especially those in Tollywood to think out of the box.First half is fast paced with entertaining and action elements. Venkatesh’s song,mannerisms and Ritika Singh’s performance thrills everyone. Interval bang is good and second half is all about how the duo fight against all odds. Second half right from beginning to end more interesting and fully engaging which makes good impact on movie lovers.
Sudha Kongara highlighted the emotions in the lives of various human beings and the struggle they have to go to win fighting against the corrupt system. Sudha Kongara’s story, screenplay and direction is quite good and intense.
Santosh Narayanan’s background score is good. It elevated the film’s scenes. Film has couple of songs and both are mass beats. Venaktesh’s song and the song filmed on Ritika attracts all. Editing could have been better in the second half. Cinematography is good. Production values are good.
Guru is a Game Changer! Just go and watch you will like it!
