Review: Guru and the Business Impact

Posted: February 7, 2007 in Reviews

Movies rarely give a chance to be stricken at some points. In other words,being injected with an unparalleled energy that bolsters your confidence and belief in the possibilities that one can create for one’s own self. In spite of boulders of odds in your way. There’s a multitude of emotions that Mani Rathnam’s ‘Guru’ generates as you walk out of the theatre.
In a small village of Idar in Gujarat, a young man dreams of making it big some day. His father [Rajendra Gupta], the headmaster of the village school, tells him that dreams never come true. But Gurukant Desai [Abhishek Bachchan] dares to dream! Set in 1951, GURU tells the story of a ruthlessly ambitious villager who moves to Turkey first and Mumbai later with his wife Sujata [Aishwarya Rai] and brother-in-law Jignesh [Arya Babbar] to fulfill his dreams.

Posted: August 30, 2006 in Reviews

Another piece -de – reststance from Goutham, giving a typical camera out put of hollywood. It ‘s wothwatching with its pace and vividness. Balajee and Ilamaran gets a special applause and in her first appearnance Kamalinee Mukherjee makes a high turn. Jyotika and Prakash Raj of course make their mark. But my salute goes to the magnum opus of indian movie Kamal.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Raghavan-feared by criminals, respected by the police force; tough, resourceful, has a keen mind and is ruthless with the bad guys. And yet, he is human-no undue stiff neck and overtly “correct”and serious personality. This man is also intense, loyal, has a deep sense of ethics and goodness, especially when respecting women… and a streak of humour here and there!

We start this pulse-pounding and nail-biting thriller of a police story by watching DCP Raghavan making so much mush out of hardened criminals across Tamilnadu. (more…)

First of all accept my apologies for not watching this movie at the time of release. I never miss a venture by T V Chandran, but it happened. Well I would start with a short appreciation.
Noted film maker T V Chandran, through his latest venture, seeks to offer ”homage to suicides” and claims that it is not merely another film on the gory Gujarat riots. In ‘Kathavasheshan’ (who is no more), he claims, is still a positive call to live valiantly though the protagonist in the film commits suicide in ‘the shame of being.’ The director, whose last film ‘Padam onnu- Oru Vilapam’ (Lesson One-A cry) won several national and international recognitions, also wants to say that his hero ends his life as an altruist, unlike the majority, after knowing that his one-time acquaintance in Gujarat was gangraped and killed in the riots there.
