Provoked

April 8, 2007

In prison, she found freedom.

I expected much from this movie and it delivered. In an interview, Kiranjit Ahluwalia (on whose story the movie is based) said that Aishwarya Rai has performed remarkably and brought her agony to life. And that’s no understatement. I totally loved Ash’s performance in Guru – subtle and pleasant. But Provoked surpasses that by yards. The film opens and you see a battered woman, the fear livid in her eyes. She’s played her role so fluidly – the expressions, the halting English and submissive, “proper Indian woman” demeanour.

The scene at the prison when she’s asked to remove her clothes, the scene before Ronnie’s appeal and the first conversation between Nandita Das and Ash, are some of my favourite parts of the movie. In the end though, I had the feeling that it could’ve had a little more detail. I loved the film, nevertheless!

    Anyways, thought Suraksha hated Ash, how come this sudden liking for her? You seem to have become her fan all of a sudden…

    i thought i ll not watch this movie because it has ash in the lead … but now i am double minded … but seriously ash had nothing to do in guru, just the typical rich man’s housewife, radhika would have done it better 😛

    Haven’t u felt it is fake when she is beaten up… Don’t u feel that is it is Aish actually beaten and not Kiranjit Ahluwalia?
