The Guru Reviews
P;S you will want to go to a Indian restaurant afterwards
In Actuality, The Guru was largely bereft of laughs or much of a strong premise, but it did have a certain lebel of sweetness to it and a good cast, as well as a decent, albeit inconsistent screenplay.
Jimi Mistry was a fairly charming lead with a convincing indan accent, and he delivered his lines well.
Heather Graham is as sexy as ever and gets enough screentime for the audience to witness her skills as an actress and even laugh here and there.
Marisa Tomei is as sweet as ever and supplies good support to Mistry's character.
Unfortunately, The Guru isn't that funny or romantic and just seems like a half-improvised parody of every romantic film ever made. It's colourful, but shallow and lacking in any interesting themes. Even it's exploration of sex falls abysmally short, and Marisa Tomei's character ends up seeming pointless because of the unbalanced plot dynamics.
So overall, The Guru had a charming cast but came from and went nowhere, and the only memorable thing about it is that theres a series of bollywood dance offs in it, because the 2 times i laughed is too small for a comedy.
