View Provoked Movie StillsEros International’s Aishwarya Rai starrer PROVOKED which released on Friday 6th April 2007, has crossed Fox Searchlight distributed NAMESAKE’s weekend box office takings in the UK.

PROVOKED grossed £140,204 with just 35 prints as against £125,084 for NAMESAKE with 59 prints in its opening weekend, thus giving a nearly double screen average of 4005 as against 2120 for NAMESAKE. .

PROVOKED has received a phenomenal reception in the UK and India from film critics and audiences. Time Out London refers to PROVOKED as a film that ‘packs a punch’, Daily Mirror as ‘…a worthy story and this drama deals with the delicate subject matter with a sensitive touch’ giving the film three stars, BBC Online as a film where ‘you actually forget Aishwarya Rai's good looks and empathize with her portrayal of a victim turned victor’.

PROVOKED is the true life depiction of Kiranjit Ahluwalia (played by Aishwarya Rai), the Asian woman who overturned the British judicial system and transformed the meaning of “provocation” in the case of physically abused women, winning justice for women subjected to domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse. The film, based on Ahluwalia’s autobiography ‘Circle of Light’ by Rahila Gupta, follows her lonely struggle in an abusive 10-year marriage, her retaliation through the murder of her violent husband and the efforts of women activists Southall Black Sisters to bring her justice.
