Set in 16th Century India KAMA SUTRA is the tale of two girls, Maya and Tara, one a lowly servant, the other a noble princess, both raised together as children. But whilst Tara is raised as a Princess Maya, as her servant, is forever reminded of her subordinate position. It is though her striking beauty and her skills of seduction learnt through the Kama Sutra, the Indian book of love, that Maya exacts her revenge on Tara by seducing her husband on her wedding day thus beginning a destructive struggle for power where revenge is the goal, but tragedy the outcome.

The story is set in 16th century India (Rajahstan) on the court where the queen (Tara) and the servant girl (Maya) are best friends. Even though friends, their differences stir up emotions - Maya wants to be equal to Tara, and Tara envies Maya on her natural beauty, spontaneity, exoticism that breathes from her every step, every chalak (dance). Tara marries the king (Raj), and Maya is thrown out of the kingdom (won't tell you the details why). Now, expelled and ashamed, she must find a new home, and maybe love...and that she does! Rasa Devi, Kama Sutra teacher offers her home and friendship, and love comes in the arms of Jai, a sensitive, yet bold, sculptor on king's (Raj) court. But not everything goes so smoothly for Maya and her love...

Even though the actors' lines are smart, witty and real, the music speaks a thousand words. Mychael Danna's music is magical. It bring life to the stone, the buildings, the wind...His work with Mira Nair has been terrific! Overall, a great movie! Highly recommended! Brilliant story, with even better acting and directing.
