Every biggie brings with it some loose talks from certain irresponsible sections of the media. â€˜Guruâ€™ is no exception.
The latest joke going around the town is that (believe it or not!) â€˜Guruâ€™ resembles a documentary and is a lukewarm show all the way. Though the sanity (or the lack of it) behind the latter part of the statement should be confirmed once the film releases on January 12, what actually surprises is the claim that â€˜Guruâ€™ is a documentary.
The world is aware that Mani Ratnam went all out to make â€˜Guru,â€™ his most commercial Hindi film venture after â€˜Dil Seâ€™ and â€˜Yuva,â€™ which suffered from their own share of bad press.
Now with promos igniting heat all around and making people sit up and take notice, such unscrupulous remarks are indeed a sad state of affairs.
In fact as per insiders, the film has a knockout performance by Abhishek Bachchan, while Mithun Chakraborty is another actor who is said to have delivered a truly worthwhile comeback performance.
The mastery of Mani Ratnam as a film maker is touted to be the USP of the film and if the terrific response to the film’s music is anything to go by, â€˜Guruâ€™ should well be the first success of the year.
May the rumor mongers take a chill pill and look for their next target. After all their bluff should be out in the open once the â€˜janta-janardhanâ€™ gives their final verdict.
