Action Thriller At It's Best
16 January 2017 | by ravisinger86See all my reviews

Guru Directed By Umesh Mehra is An Action Thriller Drama. It is Official Remake Of Tamil Hit "Kaakki Sattai" Starring Kamal Hassan. Script is Very Interesting, Screenplay is Better in The Second Half Though Movie is Bit Lengthy. Direction is Awesome. Dialogues & Action is Good.

Guru(Mithun Chakraborty) Ambition is To Become Police Officer But He is Not Selected. To Save His Mother From Mental Trauma He Fakes & Pretends To Be A Police Officer. He And Uma(Sri Devi) Are in Love. He Again Gets A Chance To Become Real Cop But Again He is Rejected By The Commissioner Himself. Angered By The Rejection, Guru Turns Into A Local Rowdy. He Comes in Attention Of A Notorious Smuggler Vicky (Shakti Kapoor) Who Works With Manu (Amrit Pal). Vicky Recruits Guru Into His Gang. He Comes Across Another Member Of The Group Rama(Sri Devi). She is Looking For Personal Revenge From Manu.

Acting Wise, Mithun Chakraborty Performs Really Well With His Hard Hitting Dialogues. Sri Devi is Fine in A Dual Role, Which is Similar To Her Later Released Chaalbaaz. Nutan, Shakti Kapoor, Amrit Pal & Sameer Khakhar Are Good in Supportive Role.

Music is Very Average By Bappi Lahiri. "Ghayal Ghayal" By Bappi Lahiri & Janaki And "I Am A Bad Girl" By Alisha Chinoy & Shailendra Singh Are Catchy Numbers.

Overall Must Watch For Mithun Fans. Action Thriller At It's Best.
