Love in India is a passionate look at the way passion is perceived in India. It is a personal film, designed with fragments of the romance between the filmmaker and his girlfriend. But soon, the film spills onto the chaos of India. New and old. Love and Sex. A volatile story of confusion, dichotomy and revelation. A story of repressed moral values in a country with a timeless tradition of spiritual sexuality. The search for the root of romance and the eternal orgasm.
A filmmaker explores the cultural traditions and contradictions across the sexually conservative land of the Kama Sutra. This is Q's award-winning film on the dynamics of love, relationships and sex, with allusions to the Kama Sutra and the Radha-Krishna legend.
