The review of this Movie prepared by Ben Keeping
Against the backdrop of 16th century India, this erotic tale is about the powers attained from Kama Sutra - an ancient indian treatise on sexual attainment. Maya( Indira Varma) and Tara (Sarita Chowdhury) are two women who have grown up together, but while Tara is a royal princess, Maya - who is no less beautiful - belongs to the lower caste, and is bitter about this discrimination. She extracts her revenge by seducing Tara's husband on their wedding night, drawing on her great sexual prowess attained from the Kama Sutra. What follows is a battle for power and revenge which is ultimately headed towards destruction.
