Top Notch Motivating Film in Tollywood Ever
2 April 2017 | by pramoddevireddySee all my reviews

I have to say that Guru will set an example for the kind of movies a senior actor should seek. Venkatesh and Ritika have given their best performance in this film. All the emotions and chemistry between Venky and Ritika worked out very well. Generally we observe that heroes are given more time and space in the movie to elevate them, but in this film both Ritika and Venky got a perfect balanced roles or I should say that Ritika took a center stage in the film. I'm sure that Ritika will get more opportunities in Tollywood here after.

The politics behind the sports selection process, especially in boxing showed are brilliant. Some comedy can be added here and there to avoid a quite serious second half. Coming to director Sudha, thanks to her for giving such a realistic and motivating film for Tollywood. The way she showcased Venky, emotions between Venky and Ritika, her screenplay and the way she directed the boxing matches are amazing and are definitely the huge assets of the film.

Finally I will say that I was impressed and motivated by this film and is appended to my suggestions list.
