Guru En Aalu, the Tamil version of Hindi hit Yes Boss, has some sparks but not enough to entertain the audiences through out.
Guru (Madhavan) has a dream and a boss who could fulfill his dream. Guru wants to become an MD of a company. He banks on his boss Krishna (Abbas), who is an MD of a multi national company. He is so loyal to his boss that he does everything to him including fixing girls for his sexual appetite.
Krishna has got everything because of his wife Sheela (Brinda Parekh) and hence he cannot afford to antogonise her. He falls for a super model Seema (Mamta Mohandas) and wants to have her as his second lady. Seema, unaware of the fact that Krishna is a married man, is tempted to marry him, as she always dreams to lead a luxurious life.
The twist in the tale is Guru too falls for Seema, even before his boss sees her. However, he has to help him to get the girl, as he is his yes man and right hand. He does it for the sake of money but could not continue, as his love for the girl grows by time. He acts cleverly with the help of Azhagappan (Vivek) to prevent Krishna from getting the girl.
Meanwhile, Krishna gets exposed but he convinces Seema that his wife betrays him and hence he needs her support. Greedy Seema relents but she slowly realizes the real colours of Krisna and the real love of Guru towards herself.
Krishna does everything to get Seema and finally he goes on a dating with her. Guru, who has now made up his mind to give up the wealth, is now determined to redeem his girl from the clutches of Krishna. The climax tells you how he achieves it.
Selva has adapted the storyline of the Hindi original but he could not recreate the spirit and energy of the original. The major flaw of the movie is it looks silly in many places and hence it fails to appeal. The way Seema behaves in unconvincing. The comical elements, albeit clichéd one, keep the momentum up to some extent.
Madhavan tiers to add life to the fare but his histrionics go waste in a script that lacks conviction. Mamta looks hot but she cuts a sorry figure when it comes to act. Vivek brings the house down with his hilarious portrayal of a woman. Abbas fails to impress while M.S. Bhaskar and Mayil Samy manage to provide some comical moments.
Cinematography (Senthil Kumar) and music (Srikanth Deva) are just about ok.
Guru En Aalu impresses in parts but disappoints with a script that lacks the spirit.
