Venkatesh played the boxing coach role in the film. Venkatesh played an entirely new role and sported a unique look in the film. Venkatesh performed very well with intensity in eyes. He is at his usual best and did well in the emotional scenes. Rithika Singh has got an excellent opportunity in the film, and it is a successful debut for her. Rithika Singh has shown variations in her role perfectly and impressed all. Other actors like Nasser, Bharani, Raghu Babu are good in their limited roles. Mumtaj is impressive as a sister in the film.

Guru is a remake. The film was already made in Tamil and Hindi. With not many changes, the makers brought the film to the Telugu audiences now. We may see the same actors in Telugu version as well. Only a few known faces can be regarded in the film. The film completely revolves around Boxing, and there won’t be any disturbances or the distractions. The emotional content of the film is a major highlight. All the emotions have fallen in the place in the right manner. The characterisations are interesting, and for every character, there is a realistic touch. The interval bang and climax sequences have come out well in the film. There are so many inspirational moments in this movie. Those who have watched the original already might not get moved but if you are watching the film for the first time, it is a must watch. Guru is one of the great films in Telugu in the recent times.
