Where did you watch this movie?

This fast-paced family-oriented thriller follows the struggles and sacrifices made by the family of a freedom-fighter, Raghu. With his own father supporting the British, Raghu is handed over to the police for his resistance, but his pregnant wife helps him escape. However, Raghu gets into an accident during the escape and is presumed dead. His wife gives birth to their son, Ashok who is an extraordinarily talented young man. With his father's rebellious blood running through him, Ashok becomes a Robin Hood like figure, leading a dual life. On the one hand, he is Guru, a canny vigilante who steals from the rich and helps the poor. On the other hand, he's a rich philanthropist who runs orphanages. When Ashok comes to know of certain terrorist activities happening in the area, he automatically resists them. In the meantime, Ashok's girlfriend introduces him to her professor, who has the same mindset and fighting spirit. Who is the professor? Will they succeed in defeating the violent plans of the terrorist network?
