Raju is a disarmingly corrupt tourist guide, who lives by his wits and falls in love with a beautiful dancer. More by chance than skill, he seduces her away from her husband. Raju makes and loses a fortune, finds himself in jail, and - - through a series of hilarious, ironic circumstances - - becomes one of India's great holy men.The Guide floats as gently as a lily pad on the surface of Indian life and yet suggests the depth beneath. -TIME A brilliant accomplishment ..
