Guru Review

  • 3.5/5

The business parts of the biopic were sometimes a little slow for me, but the romance!! And the MUSIC!!

I could have watched an entire movie just on the love story of Guru and his wife. I felt like I did watching Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Angelina and Brad) -- you're watching real people actually fall in love on screen and the chemistry just leaps out. At least that's what it felt like to me. Googled what I thought I remembered later, and yup, Abhishek proposed after the Guru premiere and with the very ring from the movie! Awwww.

My favorite scenes were the little slap fight in bed and then when they were cuddling and dreaming of their future big house swinging on that indoor swing in the little apartment. It's because they felt real, not filmi real -- but really real to a married couple, if you get what I'm trying to say.

The Vidya romance subplot was also very nice, too.

Abhishek was very good, but didn't quite have the magnetism for me to carry off some of the slower business parts. But then, I'm not sure who would in the Bollywood sphere, maybe his father, I guess. Maybe I'm setting the bar too high -- but someone who commands the screen the way the Guru character was supposed to command the business sphere.
