Mani Ratnam and Guru

Mani Ratnam is surely one of the most talented directors in India. His movies are always something exceptional. He has created some great movies in Tamil and Hindi. Roja (1992), Bombay (1995) and Dil Se (1998) are great movies that he directed in the past.

Now, he has come back with Guru. Guru is a major challenge for Mani Ratnam because for the last 2-3 years, he was a bit silent in Bollywood. So, the success of Guru will surely help him to revive his career as a top director in Bollywood.

Mani Ratnam is a director who can mix the light hot spice of Bollywood and serious tone of art film. Guru is not an exception either in this regard. You can find the usual song and dance and the display of body parts of the beautiful actresses just like any other Bollywood movie. On the other hand, Guru has a serious story and it represents the history of contemporary Indian society.
