Guru Movie Review :

Aditya (Venkatesh) was a boxing champion who lost his career because of the politics in the board, especially because of a rift with the head of Association Dev Khatri. After 10 years he is back as women’s boxing coach in Hissar. The human in him died long ago, but not the interest on his favorite sport. He is very rude and arrogant even with the girls. Taking that as advantage Dev Khatri transfers him to Vizag with false claims of sexual assault. Aditya reaches Vizag where he meets junior coach Ponds (Nasser). Disappointed with the girls, their capabilities and the funds from the Association he himself starts finding a girl who can fulfill his dream of winning a medal to India. Then he sees Rameswari aka Ramudu who is the sister of Lux, one of the girls in his team. She lives in a slum and works as daily labor. Aditya identifies the fire and natural boxing skills in her and starts training her.
How Aditya Trained Ramudu, who is as arrogant as him? 
What are the difficulties faced by them? 
What are the sacrifices, Aditya had to do? 
Did she win a medal for India?   
forms the rest of the story.

Guru Movie Analysis : 

Guru is a well-made film which shows the power of woman and the greatness of a teacher. When compared to the original, the roughness in the character of male lead is somewhat less. There are various reasons like getting U certificate and also taking into consideration, the female fan following of Venkatesh. Most of the characters, I can say 80% of the characters in the original version and Telugu version are same. Right from the female lead, Nasser, boxing association head, Mumtaz sorcar and every other important character retained their places. 

The notable changes made in the Telugu version are references of Pawan Kalyan, decreasing the harshness of the hero to some extent, making him attracted to another woman. Rest of the film is completely the same. Some of the shots were copy-pasted from the original to reduce the production costs.

Guru is a movie which is inspirational. A good message is given that woman can achieve anything they want and they are not less than any man. At the same time, the dark side of sports politics is shown. When compared to the original, both are equal. Madhavan and Venkatesh both of them did exceptionally well in their respective versions. Dialogues written by Harsha Vardhan are excellent. Dialogues like “Na Deshaniki Medal vastundi ante nee Kaallu enti, Desham lo unna 120 kotla mandi kaallu naakadaniki ayina ready” are very emotional and worth clapping.

Performances :

Venkatesh as a failure boxing coach showed his semi-masculine body. He performed very well in the tough and hard guy character. At the same time, he showcased his emotions perfectly. Rithika Singh is extremely brilliant. Her energy is mind blowing. The only complaint about her is the dubbing. The makers should have tried some other dubbing artist or some changes in the slang. Rest of the characters like Nasser, Zakir Hussain performed very well.

Technical Aspects:

Guru is technically good. Y NOT studios took good care of the budget. Music by Santosh Narayan is not up to the mark. Cinematography by K A Sakthivel is decent. Editing is crispy and the run time is less. Rest of the crew did their best.

Final Verdict: 

On a whole Guru is a movie which can inspire you and can bring some changes in the mindset of people who treats the woman as an underrated category. It’s worth a watch for the ones who haven’t watched the original. Rest of them can skip it.

Guru Movie Rating: 3.25/5

Oka Kshanam Movie Review – Allu Sirish, Surabhi

Published

Oka kshanam Movie Review

Allu Sirish is another hero from the mega family who earlier made the films Gouravam, Kotha Janta and Srirasthu Subhamastu. After being a part of 1971 in Malayalam, the actor is back now with a Telugu film titled Okka Kshanam in the direction of V.I.Anand. V.I.Anand impressed everyone with his previous movie Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada, and there are a lot of expectations on this project. The film is said to be made on the concept of parallel life as a thriller and let us check out the review of the film here.

oka kshanam review

The story of the film revolves around two couples. Jeevan (Allu Sirish) and Jyotsna (Surabhi) is one couple, and Srinivas(Avasarala Srinivas) and Swathi (Seerat Kapoor) is another couple. Jyotsna finds that Srinivas and Swathi are always undergoing a lot of disputes among themselves. She requests Jeevan to follow them to know more about their life. As Jeevan starts following them, he comes across some bitter truths which in turn become a big obstacle in his life. What happens then forms the rest of the story of the film.

Performances wise, Allu Sirish is good in the film. He has played the jovial part as well as the serious role with ease. He is sincere to the maximum part of the film and impressed everyone with his screen presence but there is a lot that he needs to improve. Both Seerat Kapoor and Surabhi looked glamorous on the screen and impressed everyone. Srinivas Avasarala has played a serious role in the movie and has impressed as per the limitations of his character. The other actors like Praveen, Satya, and few others are also good in the film. Dasari Arun Kumar played a crucial role in the movie, and he is good in his part.

The parallel life concept has been narrated well in the film by director V.I.Anand. It is also a science that most of us might not believe but it was proven in the lives of John F Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln. In the same manner V.I.Anand weaved an exciting story connecting the lives of Srinivas and Jeevan in the film. The first forty minutes of the film is spent to introduce the characters and the storyline. From the interval sequence, the film picks up the pace and sets an interesting as well as the promising premise for the second half. The second half is completely interesting with the mesmerizing screenplay. We can see the story unfolding in different ways in the second half of the film. The director completely focused on creating a good screenplay, and that is how he has come up with exciting episodes and thrilling scripts in the second half. The flashback could have been dealt nicely except that there are not many minus points in the movie. The action episodes were choreographed well and the director V.I.Anand should be appreciable for taking a new point in the film and coming out with an engaging movie.

Technical Aspects:

Technically the film is top notch. The camera work and the background music are the notable highlights in the technical department. The film is screenplay based. The director worked and took a lot of care regarding the script. There is a freshness in the text which is a good thing. V.I.Anand who is known to be a talented director has come up with another impressive movie, and it is certainly one of the best one in recent times. Watch it once.

Hello Telugu Movie Review – Akhil Akkineni, Kalyani Priyadarshan

Published

Hello Movie Review

Some simple stories can be told in a complicated manner and some complicated stories can be told in a simple manner. It all depends on the director’s story-telling skills. Vikram K Kumar is one director in the film industry whom we look up at for some beautiful story-telling. The director already proved his mettle with the films like Ishtam, 13B, Manam and 24. He is now back with Hello with the young hero Akhil Akkineni.
 
If we look at the movie from a top view, there is hardly any story in the movie. The concept that the film projects have been witnessed by us in the past for multiple times but the way Vikram gave his magical touch is impressive. There are some doubts that the first half of the movie throws to the audiences but the second half completely clears off them and the real magic of the movie lies in the second half of the movie.
hello review
 
The film story is all about the destiny factor. Two childhood friends leave one another at 10 years age. What does the destiny have in store for them and will they ever meet each other forms the story of Hello? The characters that come in the story are good and likable but the only disappointment is the phone-theft angle. It is neither impressive nor convincing. There is no proper judgment for Ajay’s role in the movie. Except for that, the movie appeals to a larger extent.
 
We come to know that the lead actors will anyhow meet one another in the end but the thrilling ride that takes place in between is what makes us curious about the movie. The emotions, love, family elements were mixed well in the plot. The childhood flashback episode is a bit long but it did not give us the feeling of boredom. The chasing sequences and the stunts performed by Akhil will surely make us thrilled. Some of the logics were neglected but in the end, they won’t come into the consideration.
 
The characterizations given to all the characters are good and neat except for Ajay’s role. All the actors performed well. Akhil and Kalyani are the life of the movie. They are simple yet brilliant. Ramya Krishna is good with her role and her performance throughout is impressive. The first half appears a bit dull when compared to the second half of the movie but the magical touch to the film by Vikram made the film an impressive watch. The film is, technically very high. The fights, RR, Music and camera work is impressive. Vikram’s writing is good. On a whole, the film Hello is a simple and cute love story with great technical values and impressive performances. Go watch it.
