Product Description

Product Description

Aishwarya Rai stars in this magical romantic drama. Tilo (Rai) is an Indian immigrant who opens a spice shop in California and gives advice to her customers on their cooking. But she is also a mythical 'Mistress of Spices', who can help people achieve their deepest desires by a careful mix of the right spices. But when she begins to fall in love, she starts to find the rules that govern her actions restrictive, and prepares to let human nature take its own course.

I am a white middle aged middle class individual so don't really watch a lot of Indian movies...not keen on all that dancing and singing and sub-titles if I am honest! Loved Bride and & Prejudice though! Wasnt sure what to expect actually......this story was quite unusual.....an Indian lady selling spices in her shop in San Fransisco (is it?) and because of the vows she has taken she can never leave the shop, never hold another persons hand, can never fall in love and can never use the spices to better her own life....never heard of a movie like that before...she can also see into the future! Not at all keen on leading man I have to say apart from that I really did enjoy it! The leading lady has been called "the most beautiful girl in the world" by Julia Roberts no less......not surprised at all! She really is quite lovely...but can she act? Yes yes yes...would I be happy to be given a movie like this as a present....yes....I loved it because there is no swearing...there is no nudity...there are no cheap laughs and this is one that you could watch with all of the family......it is a bit of a strange story but very charming in its own way.....loved it! Ignore other reviews...if you like an old fashioned magical story this is the movie for you!

The actreass like always is beautiful, the story about the spices is so good , and the lives of this romance very real.
I love it very much, and i bought twice the DVD to give as a gift.
Just love it, but again not for my TV, only for my Laptop however.

If you start watching this, knowing it is somewhat of a fairytale or fable, you will be drawn in and fall in love with the ethereal Aishwarya Rai, who needs special parts like these to show off her acting ability, which is cinema-perfect. She has the kind of face and eyes that draws in the viewer and yes, makes them fall in love with her... essential for a true movie star.
The story is simple but well-told and finely acted. This film delivers what it promises and has the mark of a good film, i.e: that one wants to watch it again.

What a brilliant story of elemental spice magic. Excellent acting with a terrific ending. It would need to be special as it mostly takes place in a spice shop. I saw it on TV and immediately ordered a copy. I would happily recommend it to anyone (adults of course) I loved it.

A beautiful film, with evocative cultural traditions, taken by the "Mistress" to the USA.
Background history, and is thought provoking on the ancient traditions and knowledge of the ancient use of spices, and herbs.
I would love to purchase the beautiful soundtrack to this film.
As yet, cannot locate, if ever it was available.

This is a pleasant little crossover movie which holds the attention of the viewer throughout.

It is probably easy for some to dismiss the film as lightweight fluff but if the intention is to bring Indian movies more into the mainstream of the American culture it will achieve it's purpose.

It is a well crafted story from the makers of Bend It Like Beckham and I hope that the fans it generates will follow a lightly followed path into more of the movies that India produces.

It is a very pleasant romantic story that tugs at the heartstrings but I must say I do yearn for something more substantial.

I am so disappointed. A great fan of Ms Rai, I am left wondering what happened. I did not laugh once during this film, so I am suprised cover says "comedy". The acting is terrible. The story???? What is the story??? It takes so long to get started, then bits are not completed and the end, well it seems they ran out of time. The colours on some of the scenes had the typical Bollywood magic. But that was not enough to save this film.

A young Indian girl learns the magical properties of spices and uses them and her knowledge to help other people in their troubled lives. Although she is not allowed to use her skills for her own benefit, there comes a time when she must make a choice between being true to her calling as a mistress of spices, and finding personal happiness. Love and magic crosses two continents. A truly enjoyable story.
