The Guru


An Indian dance instructor hops over to New York in the hope of hitting the big time. Scratching around for work, he lands a role in a movie, which turns out to be a porn movie. Unfortunately his important bit does not perform adequately, so he gets some tips from a female co-star. Some time later, he has to stand in for an Indian guru, and he soon finds himself spouting the sex tips he learned from his co-star. The celebrities lap this up, and he finds himself becoming a famous Sex Guru, something he is not equipped to handle...
The British reviews were very mixed.

Ian Douglas: It has a few laughs, but for some reason, the film has an ''amateurish'' feel to it. The male lead seemed very unsure of himself, and not up to the standard of his two female co-stars. As a Bollywood/Hollywood crossover, some things will appeal to some segments of the population, yet turn others off.
