Kama Sutra
Cast:Sarita Choudhury, Indira Varma and Naveen Andrews.
Credits:Written and directed by Mira Nair (Salaam Bombay!, 1988 and Mississippi Masala, 1991)

In a visually lovely film that summons an alluring impresson of her native India, Ms. Nair concentrates so deeply on sensual detail that the audience can almost smell the incense wafting from the screen.

Shining silks, brilliant colors, Sufi music, intricately adorned bodies of languid movements all conspire to create a seductive mood.

With Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love, Nair offers us a woman's take on a woman's desires. Her beautiful and dynamic protagonist, Maya, dares to express herself through her sexuality, and she has the abulity to handle it. "The film is as much about people who abuse love as it is about people who gain and seek and reach eternal love," Nair says. Not since Last Tango in Paris has eroticism been treated so candidly.

The film's title is inspired by the third century guide to spiritual lovemaking, Like the book, the film Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love does not have a conventional notion of one kind of relationship between man and woman - all boundries are tested, nothing is sacred, and love is shown in all its many faces: erotic, passionate, manipulative, unrequited, twisted, obsessive and eternal.
