A film whose good heart and musical numbers are much bigger than its shortcomings.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 5, 2003
mixes the exuberance of Bollywood with measured lunacy of 30s screwball comedies and adds just a dash of "The Joy of Sex"

February 15, 2003
A great film? No, but it's pleasant enough, with attractive actors, and the interspersed Bollywood numbers are a hoot.
February 14, 2003
A precipitous comedic falloff in the third quarter earns the film a qualified recommendation at best.
February 14, 2003
A screwball farce, not a musical, but it's entertainingly ridiculous in some of the same ways Moulin Rouge was.

Mistry is appealing (even while enduring some pretty embarrassing moments) and the picture entertaining, but it never crosses into something relevant or creatively eccentric.

A joyous genre-blender guaranteed to crank up your karma.

Sex, song, and Sally Jesse Raphael. The Guru celebrates -- and turns inside out -- cultural cross-pollinations.

Infectious and exuberant and occasionally naughty.

February 7, 2003
Delightful screwball comedy.

Is this goofy? Oh yeah. But it's a grownup kind of goofy that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.
February 1, 2003
All of this makes for some very entertaining if lightweight goings-on.
January 31, 2003
It feels like an upstart indie, thanks to its original script, endearing performances, colourful aesthetic, uplifting soundtrack, parodic undertones and the compelling theme of ethnic assimilation.

Mistry and co-star Heather Graham lend a fetching naivete to their characters.
