Manirathinam is a very successful director in Bollywood. He is selective about movies and whenever he directs a movie the viewers can expect something exceptional and special. IndiaGlitz has published a report based on talking to Manirathinam. It wrote:
Speaking about Guru, the director said that it is a movie that traces the life of two characters. The film is an account of the events that occur in their life from their teens till they grow old. Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai play couples while Mithun Chakraborthy is cast as a veteran journalist. Madhavan plays a cub reporter under the tutelage of Mithun Chakraborthy. Vidya Balan plays his wife.
The movie has six songs. “It is my 20th directorial venture,” he said.
Good luck to Manirathinam. I think that his main success in Guru is that he has been able to bring out good performance out of the leading players.
