"Guru" is a solid movie that shows that Abhishek Bachchan is a first-rate actor. His performance is definitely the main reason to check this movie out. It spans many years and seeing him play this role is fascinating. I do feel that the movie has segments of time where it really slows down but for the most part, I was at least interested by the story. It's not a must-see Bollywood movie but it is an interesting one that I think it worth checking out at least once.

You might think it would be difficult to fashion an entertaining account of the life of a polyester manufacturer, even a fictitious one. But director Mani Ratnam has done so with "Guru," an epic paean to can-do spirit and Mumbai capitalism.

A very well made flick.... And brilliant cinematography. Abhishek, Mithun and R. Madhavan all give stunning performances. Aishwarya Rai too has done a good but not a great job. However the climax ain't much like a Mani Ratnam movie.

With an all-guns-blazing performance by the lead actor, GURU is though not path-breaking cinema, but it is a great piece of work by Mani Rathnam sir!

Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan and the director are the heart and soul of this movie.... An epic rags to riches story of an illiterate village dweller who goes on to becomes the owner of one of the largest companies in India... Abshishek delivers arguably his best performance in this movie. His power packed performance simply carries the movie through all the way with a lot of emotion and the story flows very smoothly, the background and songs in this movie as one of AR Rahman's best. The lyrics by Gulzar fit the scenes perfectly and are all situation based my personal favorite is "Jaage hai der tak" which you get to hear many times through out the movie but not in its entirety. Its only available on the CD. The Dialogues are also very catchy and memorable. An excellently made movie and one of my personal favorite hindi movies in the past 10 years. A must watch for everyone who loves Hindi movies.

A pretty good movie...supposed to be loosely based on the Sr. Ambani...good performances by all...though I probably don't like it as much as the others

Above all I didn't like the climax of the movie which resembled the climaxes of 'The Aviator' and 'Godfather part II'.

This the first 100% Hindi film I've ever seen and I loved every minute of it. The Guru is about a young man from a poor village in India who has a very quick mind and the ability to turn even the worst situations to his advantage. His ambitions make him enemies along the way to the top and it's a fascinating journey as we see all the things he sacrifices (at some point even his health) to get to the the top of the business world. There's a lot of similarities between this bollywood movie and the hollywood movie about an ambitious businessman called The Aviator. If you liked that then you will love this. The Guru comes highly recommended. From Dean
