Rape is a Crime if you can prove it otherwise it ends up being
consent. Kis Hadh Tak... is a film about Justice and how
far a human being will go to get it. It is about love, caring and
commitment. It is about anger at the state of our society. It 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. This is a story of one such woman - Dia.
It's a film with a very definite message. A film for all.
