He makes his living from squeezing money from manipulating rich people, however, with his golden heart, he never hesitates to help and support the neighborhood. Amidst all this, he witnesses a murder of an honest man by a corrupt businessman, which changes his entire life. He is compelled to leave the home to his brother’s village, however, the problem still remains. This is the place wherein he meet Ovi played by Urmilla whom he falls in love soon. When he is busy settling his life he comes across a group of toughie who pressurizes the people of village to sell the land to the builder to construct a megacity there. So, what happens next is interesting to catch up in the film.
Review – Script & Star Performance
The story is simple and too practical wherein it is seen adopting the age old formula of a man rescuing the village from the crooks who wants to adopt this village for their own vested interest. On the other side, you can find most of the time the film predictable but makes it enjoyable for the audience. However, the film is designed somehow like Chennai Express and Rowdy Rathod to a great extent. Now, talking about the performance, Ankush seems to have done a decent job, however, the presence of Urmila is simply add the qualm quotient in the film since she has a small amount of screen space. The others too are okay in it, which helps in making things simple. The other elements like music, screenplay, editing and other technical elements seemed to be okay, which somehow add the gleam in it.
Guru – Last Word
Though most of the Marathi movies releasing these days are known to have good content, but there are films like Guru, which has loads of masala in it that is competent enough to entertain the audience. Guru is essentially an entertaining film, which can witness a number of things like whistles and cheers that are evokes in the masses catching up the film.
