‘Love Guru,’ Panned in U.S., Heads to India (Media Talk)

Date: June 30, 2008
Author: HEATHER TIMMONS
QUOTE: What’s worse: that the new Mike Myers movie, “The Love Guru,” satirizes Indians and mocks Hinduism, or that it is just not funny? That is the question in India, where the film is expected to be released in coming weeks by Paramount Pictures. The film stars Mr. Myers as an American who grew up in India and became a Hindu wise man, albeit one with a fondness for women and a potty mouth. The movie has appalled some Hindus in the United States and other countries where it has been screened. Religious groups have accused it of “blatant ridiculing” of Hinduism and called for a boycott.
