The Review

Here is my personal experience and views on this one heck of a movie.

This is a movie that caught my attention for its lead actors, Abhishek and Aishwarya and their rumours about them getting into a wedlock. The music and trailers were tempting enough for me to see it on the big screen. The film seems to be based on a business tycoon, possibly Dhirubhai Ambani, as I cannot confirm this as I don’t have enough knowledge about him.

The movie starts off in a small village where Guru(Abhishek) is being shouted at by his father for his bad grades. Then he is packed off to………should I continue? Like I don’t want to destroy the thrill of watching it first hand. :-)
The story is very inspirational and the music is simply cool. The story is a take-off from real life and captured very beautifully on screen. The music, thanks to the ingenuity of A.R Rahman, is superb. Unlike most bollywood movies, it does not have unnecessary songs or charecters. The cast is perfect, and I want to highlight the fact that Aishwarya has done a pretty good job in this movie unlike her role in Dhoom:2. Abhishek is as usual in his best.

There some really good parts in the movie like in one scene where Abhishek says

Dream, dreams do come true.

Dream and make them come true, there is no point in living without a dream

His dialogs make the movie more worthwhile watching. Overall I would give this movie a Must-See tag as this is one of the best movies I have watched in recent times.

Get the tickets and watch it this weekend! Happy watchin!
