After a lot of dilly dallying, finally we get to see the trailer of Venkatesh-starrer “Guru”. Venky reprises the role of Madhavan who played a dejected boxing champion in the original Irudhi Suttru (Saala Khadoos in Hindi). Sticking to the genre strictly, Venky packs a punch as angry coach. Although, Venky hasn’t tried this earlier, he’s at his best.
Director Sudha seems to have done a fine job. Newcomers Ritika Singh and Mumtaz Sorcar appear to have got under the skin of their roles well and did it with ease. However, it’s Venky’s show. At 56, he shed his extra kilos and looked fitter, meaner as boxing champion.
Since it’s been a while a sports drama has hit the screens, it has to be seen how people would receive it.
