Watch Mistress of Spices - Alternative Versions.
I saw this film at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival.
Mistress of Spices is based on the novel by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni,
and is the directorial debut for Paul Mayeda Berges. Berges has worked
previously with his wife, Gurinder Chadha, on a number of films
including Bend it Like Beckham and Bride and Prejudice. Chadha co-wrote
the screenplay here with her husband.
The movie follows Tilo, played by Aishwarya Rai, who is a member of an
old, mystical cult that worships spice in all its forms. She is sent to
Oakland to open a shop and help people using the mysterious powers of
the spices. Tilo, who also has the power to see visions of the future,
soon ends up helping a whole coterie of characters: a man (Anupam Kher)
who is distressed over his granddaughter (Padma Lakshmi), a woman who
has grown up in America and adopted western ways, much to his dismay;
Jagjit (Sonny Gill Dulay), a teenager who is having trouble with the
kids at school; Haroun (Nitin Chandra Ganatra), a cab driver that has a
cloudy future; Kwesi (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), a man trying to win
the heart of a woman.
But to be successful, Tilo must follow three rules: one, she must never
leave the store; two, she must never touch the skin of another person;
three, she can never use the spices for her own gain. One day a man
(Dylan McDermott) falls off his motorcycle outside her store and they
are both instantly drawn to one another, challenging Tilo's devotion to
her cause and threatening her control over the spices.
This is a nice, light film, reminiscent in many ways of Chocolat, with
Aishwarya Rai in the Juliette Binoche role. Rai is luminous on screen,
and the chemistry between her and Dylan McDermott is good. I didn't
think the voice-over narration of Rai's character's inner thoughts was
entirely successful, although I can't see how else you could really do
it; funny enough, the voice-overs reminded me of another spice-related
movie, David Lynch's Dune. The movie explores a bit of the mixing
between east and west and the conflict between old and new, but not
quite as successfully as some of Berges' and Chadha's other films, but
that is probably due more to the limitations of creating an adaptation.
