Guru is definitely Venkatesh’s career best performance to date. The star hero leads by example and shows what kind of films an actor in his age should attempt. The intense drama, Ritika Singh’s performance, and racy boxing matches are huge assets. Guru will surely be liked by the overseas audience for its class taking but we need to see how the masses embrace it. If you ignore the slightly slow pace here and there, Guru is one film which will surely impress you and ends up as an entertaining watch this summer.

The movie, being a sports drama that comes with heavy and loaded climax sequences finally ends on a calm and simple note but not before putting a smile on the viewers’ face. The movie is a must-watch this weekend for not just people who are fans of Venkatesh but also for the sports enthusiasts and movie buffs who appreciate good cinema.
Rating: 3.5/5
Guru is definitely a good content movie with a single emotion and that’s sport. Director Sudha has been successful in convincing audience about a girl who rose from low to high. The dialogues at times are striking and the intense climax is a plus. The interval bang is another asset which will make the audience crave for the second half.
Rating: 3.25/5
Guru’ isn’t a methodical commercial movie Telugu audience are addicted to. Kudos to Venkatesh for taking up this challenge, subsiding his heroic image for elevating Ritika Singh’s life. ‘Guru’ is mainly targeted at urban multiplex and Overseas Telugu audience. Despite winning the immense critics’ applause, Box Office judgment from lower order centers will decide the overall result. Cinejosh goes with 3.25 stars appreciating Sudha Kongara’s efforts.
Rating: 3.0/5
Watch Guru for Venkatesh's terrific performance and also for the newcomer Ritika. The movie is a good sports drama that we hardly get to see on Telugu screen. It may not go well with mass audiences but it may work for A Center audiences. Bottom-line: Power Punch
Rating: 3.0/5
Guru is a complete entertainer. Families and class people will love it. The film has high chances to do well in urban centers. Adirindi ‘Guru’
Rating: 3.0/5
Guru is not a regular commercial film, but has enough to keep the audience engaged and entertained. However, films like these usually don't appeal to the masses as they expect family sentiments and comedy from a star like Venkatesh. If they are willing to accept him as a character without bothering much about his image, Guru can hope for a long run at the ticket window besides the accolades.
Rating: 3.0/5
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.
Rating: 3.0/5
Guru is a decent sport based drama that ends on a simple and calm note. The movie is a must watch not only for them who are die-hard fans of Venkatesh but also for the sports enthusiasts and movie lovers who like good and realistic movie. The performance of Venkatesh & Ritika Singh and racy boxing matches are the major highlights. The Intense climax is plus point and the interval bang is major asset that makes the audiences carve for the second half.
Rating: 2.75/5
Guru is predictable but Game Changer!First half passes off with in no time with entertaining and gripping scenes between Venkatesh and Ritika Singh. The action and comedy is in sync and viewers do not get bored at all. Interval twist is ok. Pace dips a bit in the second half as emotional and sentimental elements are given more importance. Little bit of romantic feel too slows the pace of the film. However pace picks up as the film reach pre climax and climax though predictable is well shot. Sudha Kongara's story is good and her screenplay and direction makes good impact.
Rating: 2.75/5
Guru is a decent film, which offers no high moments nor boring ones. With no commercial elements, at box-office this film may have limited scope. Watch it if you are a fan of Venkatesh or a fan of sports themed movies.
Rating: 2.5/5
A Sports Drama which would motivate you definitely
