Veteran star Venkatesh has gone for a total makeover for the boxing coach character that he played in Guru.
Theatrical trailer of Guru shows a lot of promise with Venkatesh at his very best. Directed by Sudha Kongara, Guru is a remake of Saala Khadoos starring Madhavan in the lead.
Ritika Singh has reprised the role that she did in original and she is impressive yet again. Venkatesh’s demeanor, tough body language as the no-nonsense coach is the highlight of the trailer and will surely play a huge role in pulling audience to the theaters.
Guru looks like a faithful remake of the original without any tweaking for the sake of commercial masala. Saala Khadoos fared average in Hindi, but did well in Tamil.
Venkatesh with his superb portrayal of the tough and strict coach should make it a memorable film for the Telugu makers too.
