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

Director: Vakkantham Vamsi

Producers: Sridhar Lagadapati, Nagendra Babu, Sirisha Lagadapati

Music Directors: Vishal-Shekhar

naa peru surya na illu india

Allu Arjun and Anu Emmanuel starrer Na Peru Surya Naa Illu India hit the screens today. With super positive pre-release talk, this movie is expected to be a big hit. Vakkantham Vamsi has turned director for this patriotic movie which is produced by Lagadapati Sridhar. The teasers and trailers have given hints that this movie is to mark a hattrick in TFI after Rangasthalam and Bharath Ane Nenu were marked as super duper hits. Check out the full review of Naa Peru Surya Naa Illu India.

Surya(Allu Arjun) is an army officer with a great potential. His desperate desire is to serve the country by working in the border as a stand guard. Though he is one of the most sincere officers, he fails to manage his anger.

Surya gets into troubles after he kills a terrosit and gets suspended from his duty. Though his higher officials know his potentional, there is nothing they can do. Surya’s Godfather- the mentor (Rao Ramesh) is a commanding officer. He gives only one chance to Surya on one condition. What is that condition and how Surya deals with people whom he had problems in the past is the rest of the story.

Roles and performances :

Stylish Star Allu Arjun looks really apt as an angry army man. His well-built body and the mannerisms depict a typical army officer. Action scenes are really good with extraordinary performance by Bunny.

Anu Emmanuel looks really beautiful and has done a good job in the limited role she had. Emotional scenes were good. Anu and Allu Arjun look good together. Their chemistry has worked out well.

Arjun who appeared on the screen after a long time had justified his role well.

Rao Ramesh, Boman Irani, Nadiya, Sharath Kumar, Vennela Kishore, Vikram Sahadev were good and justified their roles well.

Analysis:

As a debutant director, it is fortunate that Vakkantam Vamsi made his own mark. With good story line and well-built screenplay, the movie has come out well. The dialogues are written well and are appealing. Allu Arjun’s hardwork is visible on the screen.

The first half is good with properly placed twists and plots. The intervel bang is just superb.

The second half falls a little flat here and there but the climax serves thrill. Songs are well-placed. The patriotism is shown in a different way and is appealing.

Technical Aspects:

A good job by direction department. Dialogues are good and message-oriented. The cinematography is superb with rich landscapes and scenes.

Music by Vishal-Shekhar is very good. The Bgm is in sync with the narration of the story. Production values are very rich and lavish.

Final Verdict:

A good army-backdrop movie with a patriotic feel. Recommended for this weekend.

Kanam Movie Review, Story, Performances, Technical Details

Story:

The film Kanam tells the story of a couple (Naga Shaurya and Sai Pallavi) who encounters strange and sudden deaths in their family. Later, Tulasi (Sai Pallavi) finds out a rare connection and reason behind the deaths. What happens then forms the crux of the story.

Performances:

Naga Shaurya is decent in the movie and looked handsome. He has got not much scope for performing but he gave his best support to the lead played by Sai Pallavi. The entire movie revolves around the character played by Sai Pallavi. She is outstanding in the film and performed her best. She is brilliant when it comes to the tight close-ups. She is amazing in the emotional scenes. The child artist Veronica appears cute yet delivers a remarkable performance in the limited scope. Priyadarshi played a funny character in the film which irritates in the beginning but settles down by the end. The rest of the actors are from Kollywood and all of them have made their presence felt in the limited roles.

Technical Details:

The cinematography by Nirav Shah is impressive. The framing and detailing part is amazing. The editing by Anthony is decent. The music by Sam CS is pleasant and his background score is good too. The mood of the movie was properly elevated by the camera work and music in this movie. The production values are grand and proper care was taken for the graphics work. Technically, the film is superb and everyone contributed for the best.

Verdict:

Kanam discusses a key point that is useful for the society but it does not leave an impact. The makers tried their best to include the horror and thrilling aspects of the film but all of their plans did not work because of poor script work. The film appears not so engaging in the first half but sets the premise properly for the second half. When we think that the second half is going to blow our minds, the director comes up with a not so impressive second half and a hurried climax. Not many sequences sustain the interest of the audiences which is a drawback for the horror and thriller movies. On the whole, the film is good in parts and Sai Pallavi shines without a doubt.
