  1. Bright dialogue and finely embroidered performances adorn The Guru like festive beading on a pair of made-in-India bedroom slippers.
  2. By the time a Bollywood production number segues into the finale from "Grease," the transition not only makes perfect sense, it sparkles.

  7. The kind of comedy that aims at "edginess" and "sassiness" without managing to be edgy or sassy for a second.
