About the Movie
A fictionalized version of George Harrison's first visit to India, The Guru is the story of a British rock star who makes a sojourn to India to learn the sitar from the master guru Ustad Zafar Khan. The spiritual serenity of the guru's home is then wrecked by a siege of female would-be students who want more of the rock star than the sitar.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Strongly cast, long-limbed yarn contains some of Ratnam's best stuff in its first half but script weaknesses mar the later going and film's overall impact.
Fresh: Mani Ratnam's often absorbing Guru is sort of a Bollywood Citizen Kane, a decades-spanning drama with a compelling Abhishek Bachchan as a ruthless Indian business tycoon who refuses to take no for an answer.
Fresh: There is a lot to engage the eye and the ear in Guru.
Fresh: It is certainly one of the best Bollywood movies you will see in 2007.
Great Movie by Ivory
iTunes you jackasses are displaying the Rotten Tomatoes reviews for the wrong movie .... The reviews shown are for the 2002 movie - this is the original 1969 version. Most RT reviewers weren't born in 1969 ... How hard can it be iTunes?
