Raveena's back with another hard-hitting film!
Raveena Tandon is one actress who's known for doing strong powerful films that have a strong message for the society. Who can forget her stellar performances from the films Shool, Daman and Satta!
The actress has time and again done films that have moved the audience and managed to create an impact in her 27 years career. The gorgeous mum of two is back again this month with another hard-hitting film, this time as a grief-stricken mother who's out in the open to seek revenge on the killers of her daughter.
Maatr-The mother marks Raveena's comeback into movies after she took a hiatus of five years in 2012. The film is a story of a mother who fights the system to get justice for the rape and death of her daughter when everything fails.
Raveena says that the shooting of a couple of scenes of the film left her disturbed for weeks.
“When I shot for a few scenes, I was disturbed for a week after that. We were all disturbed thinking that these kinds of horrific things can happen to a living being. We have just shown 10 percent of what a woman has to deal with when such a thing happens with her,” she told a leading daily.
“‘Maatr’ speaks about the system failure and what really can be done or what should be done when such violence against women happens.This film deals about violence against women. It has become a big concern for our society and mostly what we can see in these type of cases. I am not particularly taking about rape cases only, but all types of violence against women, for which our justice system fails.,” Raveena said.
Raveena also met Nirbhaya's, the 2012 Delhi gang-rape victim, mother before the shooting of the film to prep up for her role and says that she was left in tears after the meeting.
"I met Nirbhaya's mother during an event and believe me two years down the line, her tears haven't dried up. These are exactly her words she said 4 days is what happens, the first day the press and everyone covers it, second there will be panel discussion, the third day candle light marches and fourth day politicians coming offering compensations and the fifth day it is back to business and everyone's forgotten the incident. So what happened to her? The rapist is scout free, he is walking free and what happened to Nirbhaya's family. They are the one living a difficult life," she said.
Surprisingly the film was shot in a whopping 39 days in and around Delhi. Here's the trailer of the movie that hits theaters this Friday:
Rape cases are on the rise....
The film raises an important issue on women safety in India and despite all measures that were taken after the 2012 Delhi gang-rape, the truth is India still remains a country that is unsafe for its women.
In Delhi alone, an average of six rape cases are reported every day. 2,095 cases of rape were reported in 2015 compared to 2,085 cases in 2014. Reports also reveal that 5,192 cases of molestation and 1,444 cases of eve-teasing were reported till December 15, 2015, compared to 4,182 molestations and 1,282 eve-teasing cases in 2014.
“Crime-mapping analysis of the city suggested that any woman in a locality is surrounded by between 250 and 400 men who would not think twice before assaulting a woman. The analysis also suggests that 60 to 65 percent of women victims are between 15-30 years old. Their self-defence expertise shall be a sure counter to men with sick mindset. Almost 39 percent of the rapes were committed by friends and family members’ friends, something which cannot be prevented by the police," said Delhi Polic Commissioner BS Bassi
