Not only a tepid Bollywood imitation, but a tepid film, period.

Cinema em Cena

Belos figurinos, boas seqüências musicais (embora em número insuficiente para servir como referência a Bollywood) e Marisa Tomei de lingerie - estes são os pontos fortes do filme. Os pontos fracos? Todo o resto.

This American version of a Bollywood musical is one of the worst films I have run across in the last few years.

. . .a noble effort to bring the thrills of Bollywood to America, but this magic carpet never quite gets off the ground because it traffics in too many cinematic clichés. . .

A film whose good heart and musical numbers are much bigger than its shortcomings.

Killer Movie Reviews

mixes the exuberance of Bollywood with measured lunacy of 30s screwball comedies and adds just a dash of "The Joy of Sex"

Too timid for its own good, relying too often on bawdy gags, easy clichés and hoary stereotypes.

Austin Chronicle

There's not a whole lot of heft to von Scherler Mayer's romantic comedy with ethnic Indian entanglements; it's like overdone naan, too flaky and ephemeral for its own good, but still somehow appetizing.

Sacramento News & Review

... those modest virtues can't prevail against the coarse jokes and shabby ethnic stereotypes of Tracey Jackson's disjointed script, Daisy von Scherler Mayer's unsteady direction, or the unflattering cinematography.

...a clunky, idiotic, laughless and amateurish collection of scenes targeted to people who have the intellect of mattress springs.

It's good fun -- almost a musical.

Although the film is loaded with potential and many satirical targets, the execution of the material leaves a lot to be desired.

"The Guru" is a light and frothy concoction that is a tasty little treat with its heart in the right place.

Devoid of life, intelligence, humor, and anything else that could entertain even the most undemanding viewer, this film is a perfect example of something that should have been shipped to landfills, not multiplexes.

A great film? No, but it's pleasant enough, with attractive actors, and the interspersed Bollywood numbers are a hoot.

A precipitous comedic falloff in the third quarter earns the film a qualified recommendation at best.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

A screwball farce, not a musical, but it's entertainingly ridiculous in some of the same ways Moulin Rouge was.

With a reach that frequently falls short, higher wit and sexual sophistication crumble into plain old silliness.

It achieves flotation of benign idiocy because the stars are likable.
