“Boys are boys, they make mistakes. We should stop our women from wearing jeans.” Neither it is Women’s Day today nor are we initiating a debate on how women should carry themselves to avoid being harassed or molested, this is what the opening lines of Raveena Tandon’s film Maatr’s teaser say. After releasing its poster on Thursday evening, the makers of Maatr released a 46-second teaser of the film and from the very first second, the teaser compels you to watch till the end.
The teaser begins with the question “Justice or Justify?” and is followed by a series of words like power, money, control, politics, discrimination, inequality, lawlessness, assault, harassment with ‘Injustice’ written in bold being the last one. The words appear with a such an intense background score that you will be left with a chill down your spine.
In the end, Raveena Tandon comes with a strong message which says, “When justice is denied, it’s time to rise.” In a recent statement, Raveena did confirm that her film deals with a strong message about zero tolerance towards any form of violence against women and is not necessarily about the struggle of a mother.
