Extremely enjoyable fluff

An homage to Bollywood, "Grease" and possibly Dr. Ruth, "The Guru" could be listed prominently in a cinematic encyclopedia under the heading of 'cute cute cute'.

As a child, Ramu is seen enjoying john Travolta and Olivia Newton-John singing "You're the One That I Want", which began his love of dance, music and Americana. He moves to the US as an adult to live with his cousin but the streets are not paved with the proverbial gold be had envisioned and when his career as a waiter is short-lived, he answers a want-ad requesting an actor. Much to his discomfort, the movie turns out to be pornography and he is, uh, unable to fulfill the requirements but he does become friends with his co-star, Sharona. She is sympathetic to his plight and begins giving him sexual advice so that he can become a full-fledged porn star. But he takes this advice and becomes a sexual guru who eventually charms Upper East Side socialites, most notable Lexi, and Sharona feels betrayed.

Needless to say, its all okay at the end, and so will you be, if you just enjoy it for what it is. I like the movie far too much to point out the logistic problems, but they are there.

I loved the musical numbers, all the actors are very well-cast, and some of it is hilarious. I liked Daisy's "Party Girl" a lot and after seeing this, I'll make sure to check out her other movies. 8/10.

Unusual background, same old romcom

British Indian actor (and unofficial Nicolas Cage lookalike) Jimi Mistry plays an Indian dance teacher who comes to the USA to gain fame and fortune as an actor and, through a series of misunderstandings, happenstances and other improbabilities, becomes a sex adviser guru, spouting half-baked self-help platitudes which are fed to him in all innocence by Heather Graham's highly unlikely porn actress.

The suspension of disbelief default level is set quite high with this one, but the likability of the characters helps to make it achievable.

There's nothing terribly unusual in the plotting or scripting, but the background and setting generally is fairly original.

Jimi Mistry is good, Heather Graham tries hard but comes across as fairly vapid, and Marisa Tomei is excellent (and looks great in her underwear).

There are some mock Bollywood musical sequences which are quite good fun, and the whole thing is fairly light and amusing.

The Guru

I think the only reason I knew and wanted to see this film was because of the sexy leading actress from Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, and I'm glad I tried it, from director Daisy Von Scherler Mayer (Madeline). Basically Ramu Chandra Gupta (East Is East's Jimi Mistry) is bored with Bollywood films, but has been fascinated with Hollywood since childhood. So he travels to America, the country where dreams are made, to try and find fame. His first role is not what he expected when accidentally auditioned and won a role in a porn film, along with pron star Sharonna (Heather Graham),who keeps her career secret from fiancée Rusty McGee (Dash Mihok). Somehow Ramu gets himself into a situation where he pretends to be a sex guru, and borrowing the sexual advice of Sharonna, he slowly becomes well known as a rising star sex guru, eventually appearing on television (for his family home to see). There is the obvious point of the film where it seems bad things happen to almost everyone, but it passes, Ramu eventually confesses his fraud act, and Sharonna not only is found out as a porn star, but her groom is gay. So in the end, Ramu gets his girl, I guess a good career, and the ending sees them fly off in a car, just like the end of Grease. Also starring Marisa Tomei as Lexi, The Grinch's Christine Baranski as Chantal, Michael McKean as Dwain, Rob Morrow as Josh Goldstein and Sanjeev Bhaskar as Rasphal the Cook. The comedy is light but effective, the sexuality of the film is slightly more prominent, not a bad film. Worth watching!
