Guru - Strictly okay.

I watched Guru this weekend. It is not really a good movie.

Abhishek Bachchan is strictly okay. The climax is disappointing. There is absolutely no logic. He shouts and shouts and expects the audience to show sympathy to the character. The first scene where he smiles is really artificial and he's trying hard to act and it shows.

But Mithun Chakraborty was good as the press owner and Madhavan and Vidya Balan have played support roles.

As for Mani Ratnam:The overall dialog rendering was weak. It is a product from an old school of film-direction.I think he makes Tamil movies MUCH better than his Hindi ones.

Aishwarya Rai was good in a few scenes, as an actress.

However, it seems there are interesting parallels in real/reel life.

Abhishek Bachchan -> Dhirubhai Ambani
Aishwarya Rai -> Dhirubhai Ambani's wife
Mithun Chakraborty -> Ramnath Goenka
The Contractor Businessmen -> Nusli Wadia
Madhavan -> Arun Shourie

Sorry, its not just 'okay type'. I think GURU is a very good movie with great performances and it's inspiring too.
