Bollywood actor Raveena Tandon is gearing up for the release of her next, ‘Maatr – The Mother’. The film has been generating buzz for some time now and with the trailer, it has only increased.
Written by Michael Pellico and directed by Ashtar Sayed, this revenge thriller tells the tale of a mother who is out to get justice for her daughter. The tale is about the failure of the judiciary, and the society in the face of a heinous crime such as rape.
Raveena plays the role of the mother, a woman who wants to stand up to the criminals who destroyed her daughter Tia’s life. However, she stands alone with no support from the society, the law and her husband only want to move on past the incident.
Well, the Censor Board played spoilsport again. The trailer of Maatr, a film that speaks out against rape and violence against women had to be re-cut as the Board wanted a few cuts and suggested an ‘A’ (Adults only) rating.
Producer Anjum Rizvi says, “Unless you show such scenes, how do you convey to the audience what the film is all about? Without these scenes, the film looks flat. CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) guidelines state that violence and blood cannot be shown in trailers seeking a ‘U’ or ‘UA’ rating. If insisted upon, it will get an ‘A’ certificate. We wanted to release the trailer in the coming week, so we had to cut some shots, redo it and finally, we got an U/A.”
The movie stars Raveena Tandon, Divya Jagdale, Anurag Arora and others is all set to be released on April 21.
