  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.

    The movie offers up too many airy spiritual lessons in the hope of crossing from farce to sentiment.
  4. 50
    It may have the melody, visage and basics of a Bollywood biggie, but truth be told, The Guru, despite it’s zest and lure, gives the far-off genus a bad wrap.

    A generally entertaining but rather old-fashioned romantic comedy.
  7. The kind of comedy that aims at "edginess" and "sassiness" without managing to be edgy or sassy for a second.
