After a series of satirical roles, Sathyaraj is back to do a serious job in Gurukshetram that promises a lot in the beginning and later fizzles out to be an ordinary affair.

Director Jayabharathy, who has rendered offbeat films like Nanba Nanba and Kudisai, has tried his hand at rendering a sensitive theme laced with commercial aspects. How far he has emerged successful is a point to ponder over.

The movie is set around Bharat (Sathyaraj) and his wife Vaishnavi (Roja). Shocked after the death of their daughter in a terrorist attack in a foreign country, they return to India to lead a peaceful life. Trouble begins when Bharath meets his old-friend Jack (Rajendra). The latter had loved Vaishnavi during college days. After meeting Bharath's family, his love for Vaishnavi gets rekindled. He vows to get her back and gets the help of his friend Uncle Sam (Thalaivasal Vijay). He lets loose violence against Bharath's family. Coming to know of Jack's plans, Bharath takes attempts to thwart all his plans.

Jayabharathy had symbolically stated that the character Bharath refers to India, Vaishnavi as Jammu and Kashmir, Jack as Pakistan and Uncle Sam as America. But how far a layman can understand this complex symbolism is the question.

The major relief in this movie, which lacks tempo since it begins, is Sathyaraj's natural performance. His subtle dialogue delivery and spontaneous reactions provide some relief.
