Raveena Tandon starrer Maatr has been released today. The theatrical trailer looks powerful, gritty and socially relevant. The film focuses on the horrors of rape and the faulty Indian judiciary system. It also questions the regressive mindset of our society.
Should be stricter & harsher laws for criminals
Speaking about her comeback film, the Aks actress said, “For a long time now, I have been vocal about how violence against women needs to stop. I have three daughters and I completely support the fact that aggressive steps have to be taken. We need to have stricter, harsher laws that act as deterrents for criminals. Statistics show that crimes against women are on the rise, which indicates that somewhere, the justice system is failing to give out the right kind of punishment. Clearly, there's no fear of the law.” In the movie, Tandon plays a mother, who takes matters in her hand and seeks justice for herself and her daughter, who were raped.
Rape survivors are shamed in our country
The movie also highlights how rape survivors are humiliated instead of being supported. In our country, there have been instances where some religious leaders and politicians shame the victim rather than defending them. This repressive mindset is also questioned in Maatr. The 42-year-old actress looks powerful in every scene and the movie raises a toast to the resolute spirit of women and their never-dying attitude.
Maatr encourages people to take a stand against the evils of our society
Raveena has said that she felt the pain of distraught mother whole portraying the role in the film. Maatr has been shot realistically and she is not expecting any commercial gains. Her aim is that the message should reach everyone and encourage people to take a stand against the evils of our society. Maatr clashes with Sonakshi Sinha-starrer Noor today. Noor focuses on the independent spirit of a woman who is trying to find a meaningful path in her life.
