What to know

critics consensus

Provoked's story is worth telling, but the hammy dialogue and heavy-handed direction doesn't give it the refined treatment it deserves. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

After enduring years of abuse from her husband, Deepak (Naveen Andrews), Kiranjit Ahluwalia (Aishwarya Rai) tries to end her torment by incinerating him while he sleeps. When Deepak dies from his injuries, Kiranjit gets a life sentence in a British prison. There, she befriends her cellmate, Ronnie (Miranda Richardson), who asks her stepbrother (Robbie Coltrane) to take up Kiranjit's appeal in the hope that some real justice can be found.

    A well-picked but badly told story, director Jagmohan Mundhra caricatures practically everything on screen - taking away from the realism that could've made Provoked a great movie, and Aishwarya Rai, indifferent from her character, doesn't help the proceedings.

    This truth had to be told like many others out there which are waiting and happening at second we write/read or hear about those. Great perfomance by Aishu.

    Bollywood movie . Naveen Andrews of Lost is in this so I guess that?s why Ernie let me borrow it (I love my Losties!!) It?s a true story about the Birtish High court case in 1984 of Kiranjit Ahluwalia who?s revenge on her husband lands her in Jail. Naveen plays Deepak an abusive husband that pays dearly for it. Aishwarya Rai plays Kiranjit Ahluwalia, The lovely wife, that after 10 years well just refused to take it anymore. He cheated, drank & of course the abuse. She?s thrown in jail. That when the story really starts. The movie is interesting, occasionally frustration but not the movie itself but you yourself possibly starting to feel how Kiranjit does. (esp if you have ever been bullied or harassed in anyway, I?m sure. Not my usual thing but I did enjoy it in ways. The acting I thought was at least good. If you can find it, I?d say to at least try it. B

    Average real-life based movie, nothing that makes it "A Must Watch".
