Guru: The First Hit Movie of 2007?

Mani Ratnam, a famous film writer and director of both South and Bollywood, has already finished his new movie Guru and the movie is set to be released on 12 January, 2006. The movie is based on a village man named Guru Kant Desai or Guru who is the leading role of the movie. This role will be starred by Abhishek Bachchan. Being inspired himself, Guru will try to change the country and will go for taking important decision regarding the fate of the country. Aishwarya Rai will play the role of Guru’s wife Sujatha. Famous actor Mithun Chakraborthy will also be seen in the movie playing the role of an owner of a newspaper. Another important role of a journalist will be played by Madhaban and VIdya Balan will be seen as his wife in the movie.

Through the movie the beauty of the Mumbai in 1958 will be revealed. Dashing actress Mallika Sherawat will be appeared in a special role. Regarding the movie I am quoting some lines fro a indiaglitz report:

Reports are that the movie is loosely based on the life of business tycoon Dhirubhai Ambani. Madhavan, a protege of Manirathinam, says, “I don't think the movie is based on Ambani. But it revolves around Gurukant Desai, an industrialist, who wants to change the nation.”

“As far I am concerned, I had to lose a lot of weight and I had lost 8 kilos for my role in Guru. Looking at Mani working in the sets gave me the high that I needed.”

Mallika Sherawat appears for an item-number in the film.

The movie is produced and directed by Mani Rathnam. Music is by A R Rehman, with lyrics by Vairamuthu. Cinematography is by Rajiv Menon.

Guru seems to be the first hit movie of this year. However, it is the spectators who will decide whether it is good enough for them.
