Today, Tamil comedy drama Romeo hits the screens, starring actor Vijay Antony and the talented Mrinalini Ravi. A Telugu version titled Love Guru is also releasing along with the Tamil version. Let’s see how the film fares in our review.


Successful businessman Aravind (Vijay Antony) returns from Malaysia to his village Simhachalam, and immediately falls in love with Leela (Miranlini Ravi). After their marriage, they moved to Hyderabad. Arvind soon realizes that Leela has married him to escape parental pressure. Despite feeling confused, Aravind decides not to interfere with Leela’s aspirations. However, everything changes with the arrival of Vikram. Who is Vikram? What is Leela’s true ambition? Did Leela ever love Arvind? Did Arvind know about Vikram’s existence? These questions are the keys to the story, waiting to be discovered by audiences on the big screen.

Plus points:

Vijay Antony shines in Love Guru, showing a refreshing side with his dance moves and comedy flair, which is different from his usual roles. His emotional performance, especially in the latter half of the film, adds depth to the character.

Mirnalini Ravi impresses with her portrayal. She presents her character’s struggles and aspirations beautifully, adding layers to the narrative.

The comedy elements presented by VTV Ganesh and Yogi Babu add humor and light-heartedness to the story, providing constant entertainment throughout the film. Others are fine in their respective roles.

Negative Points:

However, the story of Love Guru feels derivative, resembling a popular Hindi film, making it easy to predict the trajectory of the plot and reducing the element of surprise.

While debutant director, Vinayak Vaithyanathan, handles the first half effectively, the later parts lack the same beauty, with some scenes feeling repetitive and lacking impact.

Despite some emotional scenes being impactful, others could have been written better to connect with the audience more deeply. Additionally, apart from a few pleasing tracks, the rest of the soundtrack fails to leave a lasting impression.

A missed opportunity lies in developing stronger dialogue exchanges between the lead characters, which could have enriched the emotional core of the film, compensating for its predictable nature.

technical aspects:

While Vinayak Vaithyanathan’s direction and writing are fine, especially in the second half, more focus on crafting a unique story with richer emotional depth and a more engaging screenplay could have enhanced the overall impact of Love Guru.

Barath Dhansekar’s music and Farooq J Basha’s cinematography contribute to the visual and auditory appeal of the film. However, Vijay Antony’s editing, especially in the second half, could have been tighter to remove unnecessary scenes. Still, the production values ​​are commendable, and the Telugu dubbing is well executed.


Overall, Love Guru offers moments of entertainment despite its predictability. Vijay Antony and Mirnalini Ravi have given commendable performances with impressive comic delivery. However, the film’s derivative story, occasional pacing issues and repetitive elements may leave viewers wanting more. Looking for alternative options for weekend entertainment can be a wise choice. Rating: 2.75/5
