GURU

Bollywood 29/04/2007

GURU has many things to make you excited.
1. It is directed by the Guru of direction, Mani Ratnam.
2. Music is by the Guru of music industry, A R Rahman.
3. It is rumored to be based on the life of the business Guru, Dhirubhai Ambani.

The movie is about life of Gurukant Desai (Abhishek Bachchan), a dreamer, who lives in a small village and believes in dreaming high. The movie shows how GURU becomes India’s top businessman from a small time worker in Turkey. You will find many similarities between the character GURU and Dhirubhai Ambani, be it paralysis attack or being constantly in the news with various allegations.

The movie is shown in 3 phases, Phase 1, the young Guru who leaves India for Turkey to earn more. Phase 2, the young matured Guru, who leaves his job in Turkey and comes back to India to start his own business. And Phase 3, a middle aged businessman, who is top businessman in India and does not believe in looking back.

From the beginning itself the movie does not let you move for a single minute, the music, the cinematography, the direction and finally the acting. Everything is just on the right place and very well balanced. I think this movie will be a milestone for Abhishek Bachchan as his acting abilities have been explored very well. This will be the best role of his career so far. Aishwarya Rai played the role of a very simple innocent girl from a small village. And she played it very well. But the movie totally belongs to Abhishek Bachchan.

The cinematography is really impressive; the locals of the village are shot very beautifully. The waterfalls, the grass fields just make you feel like being there.

Let me sum up the movie.

Story: Inspiring. It tells the story of a village boy who dares to dream and how he realizes his dream, the director has handled the subject brilliantly.

Music: When it is A R Rahman, it has to be top class. I personally liked all of the songs. Especially Tere Bina is very impressive.

Acting: Abhishek Bachchan deserves an award – Excellent acting. Aishwarya Rai was also very good. The acting was just too natural. I had a fear that they might not fit well in Gujarati characters but I am really happy that they proved me wrong. Other characters too did their job well. It was good to see Mithun Chakraborty in a decent role after a long time. R Madhavan looked a lot slimmer than his earlier avatar. Vidya Balan had a very short role but she was good at it.
