Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love (1996)

Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love (1996, IND) C-114m. ** D: Mira Nair. Starring Indira Varma, Sarita Choudhury, Ramon Tikaram. Naveen Andrews, Rekha. Leisurely paced drama from India about servant girl Varma, who is wooed by a prince but falls in love with an artist, which gives rise to complications. Not a sex film (as the title may suggest) but a sensuous drama that lacks the je-ne-sais-quoi to make it work. Pace is major drawback, keeps the film unfocused; overall mood is enticing.
