Mani Ratnam’s GURU started on a 50%-60% note almost everywhere. A positive sign since the film has opened extensively [750 prints, including Digital] in the three versions [Hindi, Tamil and Telugu]. The film picked up towards the evening shows everywhere, with multiplexes [screening the film in 12/15/20 shows] showing approx. 85%-90% occupancy. The general feedback being extremely positive, the film is expected to enjoy a good first weekend.
Abhishek Bachchan has been appreciated tremendously. Both, the paying public as well as the industry people have gone gaga over the actor’s sterling performance in the film.
