Interesting action flick
14 July 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Umesh Mehra's Guru is a nice action film. It is interesting, well-made, at times funny, at times moving. It is not an extraordinary film, but wholly entertaining. Mithun Chakraborty stars as an aspiring police officer, and the film follows his story. Chakraborty does what he is best at, an angry and sensitive young man. Along with him appears a young and vibrant Sridevi in a surprising double role. She plays both roles with equal conviction. She is relatively restrained as both the traditional and religious Uma and the modern Roma. Bappi Lahiri composes a noteworthy soundtrack and one song that must be noted is "Ghayal Ghayal". Not that it is better than the other songs, I'm mentioning it because S. Janaki's fantastic rendition for both of Sridevi's characters in two different voices and styles is a great example of superb playback singing. Or maybe it's best to simply call it playback singing in the full sense of the term. Watch the film, it's a nice 1980s Bollywood entertainer, but do not expect anything special.
