Storyline

An insurance investigator (Rick Rossovich) is hired by the American wife (Maryam d'Abo) of a maharaja to go to India to investigate the questionable death of her husband. Immediately the two start an affair that leads to several soft-core sex scenes scattered throughout the film. Meanwhile an Indian woman (Asha Siewkumar) believes that her own father's disappearance may be involved in the murder, a story that local police dismiss. She then stalks the wife to get proof of a conspiracy. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Good soft-core thriller
2 July 2000 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

a typical Jag Mundhra film, with a decent amount of nudity sprinkled throughout. let's face it, this guy isn't a cinematic visionary. and u know what to expect in a film like this. as far as erotic thrillers go, this was good, with the added bonus of being set mostly in India (for that exotic touch). nice to see Asha Siewkumar in the buff, too.
