Seeran Review: Remake of Mouna Guru (2011) but with the lead role in the shoes of a female lead. The film was remade in Kannada as Guru (2012) and in Telugu as Shankara (2015).The film begins with the song played by radio as in films Thoongavanam (2015) and Jackson Durai (2016). ‘Life always tests you with your special virtue that exists in you’ – Old Sufi Proverb. In Mouna Guru (2011) – scene when the police loots the money was more appealing than this. May be it was because I saw Mouna Guru (2011) firstly. I found John Vijay’s casting better than Anurag Kashyaps’. May be it was because of his big eyes which naturally gave a thrilling experience. As a whole, I loved Mouna Guru (2011), may be because of the male lead. It is not only with the lead but also the hostel was more realistic had it been for men.
