Princess Tara and servant girl Maya grow up together as close playmates but, as adults, the bitchy Tara Sarita Choudhury is determined to keep her stunningly beautiful friend Indira Varma in her place. Almost inevitably, the aristocratic Tara becomes engaged to the local king, Raj Singh Naveen Andrews. But in revenge for a public humiliation by Tara, Maya, on the eve of the royal wedding, sneaks in to seduce the king.
Tara and Maya are two inseparable friends in India. Their tastes, habits, and hobbies are the same. Years later, the two have matured, but have maintained their friendship.
Princess Tara Sarita Choudhury and her servant girl, Maya Indira Varmamay have been friends as children, but once the girls hit sexual maturity, jealousy rears its ugly head. The lowly Maya is clearly the more desirable -- she's sexually uninhibited -- and sleeping with Tara's fiance, Raj Singh Naveen Andrewson the eve of his wedding doesn't help assuage Tara's. Maya is banished from the palace, but vengeance is hers: She enrolls in a sex school run by Rasa Devi played with relish by the Bollywood legend Rekhawhere young women are trained in the sexual calisthenics of the Kama Sutra, and Maya returns to the palace as the Raj's chief.
The Kama Sutraas everyone knows, is an ancient Indian guide to love and having sex in positions that would be uncomfortable to anyone but teenage gymnasts.

Indira Varma, a stunning beauty even if the script doesn't require her to act too often, plays a servant girl who becomes the lover of a gifted artist and a courtesan to the king.

Set against the vibrant tapestry and striking sounds of sumptuously reproduced ancient India, Kama Sutra uncovers the truths behind the highly revered, extremely controversial and greatly misunderstood book of Indian lovemaking techniques. Background notes are edited by Louise Keller. In making Kama Sutra I wanted to make an ancient-modern tale, a story which although set in the 16 th century is utterly modern in its telling, in its ideas, in its feeling.
Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love is a historical erotic romance film co-written, co-produced, and directed by Mira Nair. It takes its title from the ancient Indian text, the Kama Sutra and serves as a common link between the characters. The portion of plot derived from "Utran" takes place from the film's beginning until the scene where Maya says: "Now something I have used is yours forever.
