The Guru

This silly but enjoyably goofy comedy features an Indian dance teacher (Jimi Mistry, from BBC's EastEnders) who leaves his country to join a cousin in America. Pursuing his dream of becoming a movie star, he ends up cast in a crummy porno film with a friendly female co-star (Heather Graham, settling into her typecasting). Later on, at a party, our hero fills in for a drunken spiritual guru and suddenly finds himself giving out sex advice to all of Manhattan. The story is disjointed and the characters cliched, but the cast keeps things lightweight and fun. 94 minutes
