The Mistress of Spices


I read the novel with the same title written by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni years a go and I love her writing. Her books usually tell about fairy tale, legend, romance and some children story as well.

I have never known that this book adapted into movie, until one day I came across the VCD at a disc shop and curious about it. I love the story, it's about Tilo, a woman who is also a Mistress of Spices. She has special ability to forecast the future. She knows what the best spices for everyone. She uses her ability totally to help other people.

To maintain her power, there are three rules to be followed, first, she must use her ability only for other people's need, she's not allowed to touch other people skin, and last one, she is prohibited to leave her spices store.

Things are getting complicated when Tilo falls in love with her customer, Dough. She is in a big dillema, either to leave the spices or follow her desire of love.

I love many things in the movie, the shop where Tilo works, "Spice Bazaar", her ability to find the best spices for her customers and mix them, and the last one is Aishwarya Rai herself as Tilo, she's so beautiful and act so natural.
