Maya (also known as Kamasutra Nights), promises to look highly erotic and thrilling. However, it will appeal to those who are simply looking for cheesy dialogue, easily predictable sequences and steamy sex scenes. I was wondering: did the director Eric Manning does any homework to ensure that the movie works well? The movie simply tells the different story.
The story begins with a girl named Maya, who is studying in America with her best friend, Alexandria. Maya found out that she has a mansion in India, thus she went to India with Alexandria for a holiday. Both were informed by their driver that they are not to enter the forest behind the mansion.
Both girls were greeted by their auntie, also named Maya, where she owns the mansion. They entered the forest and Alexandria falls for a hunky artist, Crosby. Maya, meanwhile, met Milind, a man who lives in the caves and makes a living by making love potions. Alexandria falls for Crosby and Maya was bedazzled for Milind. Thus, all are engaging in endless sex and physical contact. When Alexandria found out that Maya is possessed, she seeks a solution to rescue Maya from Crosby.
So what you will get from the movie is nothing but too predictable ending. Haunted mansion, black magic,spirits...you name it, and they got it.
If you are expecting for something similar to Mira Nair's Kamasutra, you will be disappointed. While Mira Nair's Kamasutra comes with substance, Kamasutra Nights is simply too easy to understand. One do not need to think further to know what is going on.
The movie is comical (eg: Alexandria and Maya getting intimate with each other) filled with loads of senseless scenes. To keep it highly entertaining, one will get loads of music scores to go along with the dialogues, immediately after a track has ended. So, if you are looking for Slumdog Millionaire liked, this is not the film for you.
If you are looking for a good comedy to give it a laugh, this is the film for you. If you are looking for hot steamy erotica, you will get it from here. But, if you are looking for thought provoking foreign drama, then this is the wrong choice for you.
