Now, this is why I like IMDb so much! Try it yourself. First, filter
for "Loved It" and read 10 or so reviews. Then, filter for "Hated It"
and read a few more. Wow, there's some dichotomy there ...
For me, this is a parody of run-amok ego and empty spiritual seeking, nothing more, nothing less. These characters are not _supposed_ to be likable or deep; they're so unaware of their surroundings that they're caught in a keystone-cop kind of existence. The saturated, zoom-lens styling is vintage 1960 ... but, wait, there's an MP3 player throughout ... so there are still people like this today? If you're part of that scene, or envious of it, you won't find it funny. Otherwise, the laughs are rooted in amazement. There's no conventional narrative because as a schematic about living a tunnel-vision life not even a real loss can register for three clueless Americans for more than a day. This is India as seen through their eyes. They learn a little something, but not much. Sad and funny at the same time.
This is a Rorschach ... my favorite kind of movie.
