2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jeffery Mingo on June 22, 2005
Format: DVD
This film supposedly takes place in India, but it says absolutely nothing about the Kama Sutra or its principles. I guess in some Western minds, India + sex = Kama Sutra. It would be useful for viewers to read bell hooks' "Eating the Other" in which she says people of color and places outside of the West are thrust to the margins and are portrayed as solely for the purpose of Westerners/whites.

This was almost like a Harlequin romance novel set to film. Surprisingly (and possibly disappointingly), this was softer than the soft core first "Tales from the Kama Sutra." This is supposed to show two star-crossed lovers reuniting, in which the Capulets and Montagues are replaced by Westerners/whites and Orientals/Indians. (Oops! I guess they probably take a cue from "West Side Story" in this arena.) This is a pure B movie with bad acting, bad fight scenes, etc.

This film tries to have its cake and eat it too. On the one hand, it wants to bring the masculine West and the feminine East together in the pairing of the white male protagonist and the Indian female love interest. However, this actress is so light-skinned, you would barely know she is not from the West. In order to compensate for that, the film often shows her wearing bracelets, bendis, and saris. This film wants to show interracial love, but also not show it. There are plenty of talented South Asian actresses with rich nutmeg or chocolate-colored skin (think of the artists in "Bend It like Beckham," "Fire," or "My Beautiful Launderette," for example) that they could have hired but did not. The male lead has a body similar to the adult star Earl Slate.

In one scene, the viewers see the male protagonist with his white priest/DEA agent buddy.
