WHEN HE TALKS, WOMEN LISTEN.
Indian dance teacher Ramu Gupta (Jimi Mistry) leaves his country for the United States where he’s hoping to become a movie star; however, circumstances turn him into a “guru of sex”. Bollywood meets Hollywood in this cheerful but utterly conventional comedy. Watching the fake guru’s escapades in New York are amusing, and so are the three leads (not least Heather Graham as the sweetest porn star in the world), but the Bollywood numbers are not colorful enough and there’s a general laziness marring the whole project.
2003-U.S.-Britain. 91 min. Color. Directed by Daisy von Scherler Mayer. Cast: Heather Graham (Sharonna), Marisa Tomei (Lexi), Jimi Mistry (Ramu Gupta), Michael McKean, Christine Baranski, Rob Morrow.
