Mira Nair
Released:
1997
Rating:
R
Kama Sutra is a complicated story of how a young woman's sexual exploits can result in monumental outcomes. Maya (Indira Varma) and Tara (Sarita Choudhury) have been best friends all their life, but that is about to change. Tara is a princess, groomed to be queen, and Maya is, and has always been, groomed to be her servant. Urged by her best friend that she should simply accept her lot in life, Maya gets back at Tara by sleeping with Prince Raj Singh, (Naveen Andrews) her husband to be. Maya soon sets out to make her own life, after shunning the proposal from Tara's brother Biki (Khalid Tyabji). She encounters and starts to study with Rasa Devi, (Rekha) teacher of the Kama Sutra, learning the art of seduction and putting it to work with her lover Jai Kumar (Ramon Tikaram). Raj, now king, finds Maya and enlists her as his favored concubine, which in time leads to a deadly quarrel between himself and Kumar. Maya leaves once again to start a new life, now aware of the power she possesses in the ancient art of seduction. Mira Nair directs this controversial tale of a woman gaining a powerful tool in a time of great oppression.moreless
