Kis Hudh Tak… movie review

How far would you go for justice?


Kis Hudh Tak, movie review

Kis Hudh Tak was earlier titled as “Dia”. In one of the publicity banners of this film, a tagline states “Rape is a Crime if you can prove it otherwise it ends up being consent.” Kis Hudh Tak movie review…

A film about Justice and how far a person will go to get it, it is about love, caring and commitment. It is about anger at the state of our society. Kis Hudh Tak is about the state of our judicial system.

And most of all it is about the fact that if you want something bad enough – it is not money or power that helps you to get it – what you really need is intelligence, determination, patience and focus. But above all – you need the strength of conviction to sacrifice, if necessary, that very thing that you hold dearest to your heart.

For in the extent of your sacrifice lies the extent of your conviction.

Rape in itself is a terrible act but Date rape is gruesome because it is perpetrated by the very person that one trusts. More than the physical pain, the shock and trauma lies in the breaking of that trust. That is the ultimate rape.

In most cases the victim absorbs the shock and pain in silence afraid of the reaction of society in general and the family in particular who end up blaming the victim for getting herself into this situation. Some girls take their own life because they just cannot come to terms with the situation and sometimes, though rarely, comes along a person who stands up to the situation, faces it head on, confronts the man and society and the legal system with the single minded focus of punishing the man for this heinous crime.

Kis Hudh Tak is a story of one such woman – Dia (Shital Shah).

Sharad (Pavan Sharma) is the son of a powerful politician Sujata Kumar (Nirmala Devi). He is a spoilt brat and a playboy. His weakness is girls, and derives pleasure in inviting pretty young girls to his farmhouse and getting up close and personal with them.

Sharad comes across Dia who is a law student and befriends her who is honestly in love with him.

During a rendezvous with Dia at his farmhouse, Sharad ends up raping her. It is an incident of date rape. Dia isn’t like the other girls who despite going thru this embarrassment and just keep quite. She decides to avenge her humiliation and files a Police Complaint.

Now Sharad is promptly jailed but claims he’s innocent. Dia, the victim, goes to the court and files a case against this filthy rich man having powerful connections.

Slickly shot, Kis Hudh Tak is fast paced at several places, it lacks star power. Performances are a just above average, however Kis Hadh Tak really leaves you thinking – Rape is a crime… if you can prove it. Shital Shah is talented while Pavan Sharma has a screen presence and thats all.

If you desire to get it, you can. All you really need is intelligence, conviction to sacrifice, determination, patience and focus. The morale is fine, but the film is just an average fare.
