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>

Nowhere close to 'The Other Woman'
17 May 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This shoddy excuse for erotica-thriller is probably exactly what you'd expect from Jagmohan 'Jag' Mundhra. Although I became an instant fan after 'The Other woman', his previous and later efforts failed to live up to par.

The story goes to India and revolves around a murder mystery surrounding the Raja's death and her widowed british wife. The insurance investigator, as usual, gets more than what he bargained for and gets entangled in the web of sex and deceit.

Lee Anne Beaman's scenes of importance are poor and almost irritating at times. The english woman and investigator's sex scenes are even worse, (one of the tired scenes portrays the couple making love on the edge of a waterfall among the rocks! what the hell?)

The only saving grace of the movie is the dark and raw beauty of Asha Siewkumar, who of course is not noted for her acting abilities. She isn't extraordinarily pretty, but very very sexy.
