Love Guru

Love Guru


 A scene from Love GuruLove Guru is an oft-repeated story. Of unrequited love, of misunderstandings and their consequences. The story takes place in a corporate setting and this is where newbie director Prashanth Raj’s craft comes to grips with a paper-thin screenplay. The making is good; as are most of his dialogues. He has presented all the actors with minimum fuss and sophistication, sometimes leaving the characterisation of a few of them incomplete.
 
To his credit, it must be said that there is no over-dramatisation of emotions; Suresh Urs’ scissors do a thorough job. After films like Seena, it is refreshing to see Tharun and Vikram Suri (vicariously) not going overboard. Dilip spends the right energy into his role.

Radhika’s smartness is evident in her choice of roles. Yajna Shetty and Harish Raj are wasted. Jnanamurthy’s camera and the graphics guys are diligent; Joshua presents pleasing , yet eerily familiar tunes. What lingers from the film is the director’s hesitation which finally turns into conviction. Inexperience in some departments is somewhat compensated by his overall design.
