The Guru

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Heather Graham, Jimi Mistry, Marisa Tomei, Christine Baranski, Dwight Ewell, Michael McKean, Rob Morrow; Director: Daisy von Scherler Mayer; Author: Tracey Jackson; Runtime (in minutes): 95; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Universal

This very funny studio picture about an Indian chap looking for stardom in America and inadvertently finding fame as a sex guru plays like an indie lark, inordinately cheering in the drab dead of winter. It’s a blending of venerable Bollywood musical conventions and Hollywood formula, a vision of comedy karma at its most chameleon. Jimi Mistry stars as the pseudo-swami; Heather Graham skewers her ”Boogie Nights” success as a wise porn starlet with family values.
