Aditya Rao (Venkatesh) is a talented boxer who enters into a tussle with the Boxing Association and misses his target. He faces similar problems when he turns a coach. Later he is transferred to Vishakapatnam. There Aadi finds Ramudu (Ritika Singh) who is a vegetable seller. Aadi finds her perfect to succeed in boxing and dreams to make her a Champion. Initially, Ramudu mistakes his aggression and tough training but later understands his actual intention. Rest of the story is how they achieve the target.
Guru is a fresh attempt from Victory Venkatesh after a long time. From his getup to performance, everything is top notch. Ritika Singh performed better than her role in the Original. Nasser, Raghubabu and Bharani are okay. The song rendered by Venkatesh is good. More than the songs, the background score is appealing. Camera work is also very good while the production values are appropriate.
There are very few changes from the Original to this Remake Project and the makers have even used some portions from the Original to control the budget. Director Sudha Kongara who wrote the script focused solely on the Game and had no other track in the movie. Both Venkatesh and Ritika Singh excelled in their roles and the audience will connect to them immensely. The director did not go into the details of the game and its rules or else it would have become a documentary. Those who did not watch the Original will enjoy it.
Finally, Guru is an Okay Watch to those who watched the Original while those who did not see it will enjoy the remake film. As a whole, it is easily a One Time Watch.
