Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Love Guru

Guru Pitka was an American raised in India to become a spiritual master of love. As a boy he wanted the girls to like him, and because of this love for women, his guru assigned him a chastity belt. He was taught alongside Deepak Chopra, now considered the foremost guru in America. He believes that his success can be cemented if he gets to appear on the Oprah Winfrey show. Pitka has always been insecure of Chopra's success and hopes to surpass it. He finds the opportunity to do so when he is approached by Jane, the manager of a Toronto Hockey team, who needs him to guide her star player Darren, who is suffering a breakdown because his wife ran off with a rival player. Pitka advises Darren on love, and eventually breaks his losing streak. Along the way, Pitka also develops feelings for Jane. Since he has a vow of chastity, he is now stuck in a bind being in love himself.

Best part of story, including ending: You'll be curious to see what silly things Pitka has lined up for Darren, and you wonder if they'll work.

Best scene in story: When you see flashbacks of Pitka's childhood at the ashram.

Opinion about the main character: Honestly, I find Pitka's motivation to become good at his job very selfish since he just wants to put down Chopra.
