In a seductive tale of love and betrayal, a king's courtesan is forbidden to embrace her one true love. Trained in the art of pleasure, Maya, the beautiful servant girl becomes defiant, rebelling against ancient tradition. As passion takes over, the conflict brings consequences that no one ever envisioned. Breathtaking cinematography, lavish costumes and mesmerizing music add a compelling richness to this epic tale from critically acclaimed director Mira Nair, Director of MISSISSIPPI MASALA and the Academy Award Nominated SALAAM BOMBAY. Sarita Choudhury (MISSISSIPPI MASALA, THE PEREZ FAMILY) is delightful as Tara, the envious princess. Indira Varma is luminous as Maya, the sensual servant. Naveen Andrews (THE ENGLISH PATIENT) and Ramon Tikaram (CUTTHROAT ISLAND) are ravishingly sexy as the rivals who love her.
