Mani Ratnam's 2007 Guru is clearly a movie with serious intentions. It's about the inequities in society, the pitfalls of ambition, the corrupting influence of power. I can't say, however, that I followed it all, and I can't tell whether that's because of the oft-chronicled subtitling issues, occasional narrative murkiness, or the fact that I was utterly distracted by the eye candy.
Do I prefer innocent young Abhishek?
Or intense older Abhishek?
Fortunately, I'm under no obligation to choose! Ahh, the wonder of cinema.
