Mani Ratnam's muchawaited movieGuru, starring Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai, is scheduled to hit screens on December 22.

The film will be seen as the grand finale for a year that churned out some of the biggest hits - Rang DeBasanti, Fanaa and Krrish and also critically acclaimed Omkara.

Guru marks yet another leap in Abhishek's career just like Yuva that catapulted him to the status of a "successful" actor, said sources that have seen the rushes of the film.

Some more screen scorchers will hit the marquee before Guru. The list includes Farhan Akhtar's Don, JP Dutta's Umrao Jaan, Shirish Kunder's directorial debut Jaaneman, Sanjay Gadhvi's Dhoom 2 and Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Eklavya. So it's only fitting that the year ends with a film by none other than Mani Ratnam.
