Provoked! Aishwarya Rocks In The Movie

In Irish novelist Roddy Doyle's The Woman Who Walked Into Doors, the battered wife Paula keeps justifying her bruises by saying she as a habit walks into closed doors and hurts herself. The battered wife Kiranjit in Jagmohan Mundhra's jolting expose on domestic values never gets a chance to walk in or out of that closed London door where she lives with her brutal husband. She chooses her husband's death over own exit. It's amazing how the true-life Kiranjit Ahluwalia found freedom by setting her brutal husband on fire. In one of the film's most sensitively delineated dialogues, Kiranjit says to her rather overly benign prison mates, "I've never felt freer in my life."

Critics have often panned our beautiful Aishwarya Rai for her acting skills. But…

Provoked Has Been Certified As ‘U/A’

Director Jagmohan Mundhra's Provoked starring Aishwarya Rai is a real life story dealing with domestic violence. The film was sent for censorship late last month wherein it was passed with an 'A' certificate. This incidentally miffed the director. "The film Provoked deals with domestic violence wherein Aishwarya Rai is subjected to physical, mental and verbal abuses by her husband. Hence the film had many abusive words. So we had to give it an adult certificate," says Censorship Examining committee member Nandini Sardesai. She further adds, "But Mundhra was not content with this outcome. So he agreed to delete the four letter words and got the film for re-censorship. Now it has been given a 'U/A' certificate." Sardesai says that Mundhra felt the need for the film to reach a wider audience because of its delicate issue. Giving the film an A certificate would have, thus limited the audience in the theatres.
