Critic Reviews for Guru

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7)

  • It is certainly one of the best Bollywood movies you will see in 2007.

    Feb 5, 2007 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Filmmaker Mani Ratnam leavens his trademark politically charged melodrama with a smoking belly dance by sultry Mallika Sherawat and a wet-sari number for the stunning Rai.

    Feb 3, 2007 | Rating: 3/6 | Full Review…
  • Ratnam's absorbing screenplay ensures that Guru rises above the usual rags to riches story.

    Jan 27, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The film is a triumph of casting: In a role that is often about the sheer steamrolling force of his character's personality, Abishek Bachchan's attention to detail makes Guru accessible rather than intimidating, admirable but also plausible.

    Jan 19, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Strongly cast, long-limbed yarn contains some of Ratnam's best stuff in its first half but script weaknesses mar the later going and film's overall impact.

    An interesting movie. Great story plot. Aishwarya Rai, Vidya Balan, and Abhishek Bachchan are all great! Fascinating music by my favorite, A. Rahman.
