Format: DVD
Provoked is a very emotional and touching movie. The story is about how one woman faced overwhemling odds against her, in favour of freedom from jail due to case of continued and rentless abuse from an evil and bullying husband. She understandbly placed the law in her own hands and paid the heavy price. Her case attracted huge publicity via woman rights campaign groups in a successful attempt for a retrial at the high court. The first trial overlooked certain facts, which I will not go in details as the movie will reveal it all.

The issue of domestic violence from abusive hubands is well documented in the movie. The legal formalites are a little complex to grasp, but had a significant bearing on the jurdical aspect of the UK legal system. Her case touched millions of heart and gained sympathy even from prison inmates. That is the general gist of the story.

Aishwarya Rai maybe criticised a little unfairly for her acting, but she provides a solid performance as this couragable lady who maintained great dignity. The story is true and is well delivered for dealing with a high compex legal case. I felt like crying in certain phases of the movie. If you want to watch a movie that is touching and dramatic, watch Provoked. I do not want give any unnecessary criticism to the movie. It deserves praise for recreating the events of this real life story into a feature length movie. The events contribued to a legal victory, which appear to be remotely not possible. Fascinating movie to watch for the subject it tackled well.

This is a very gripping story based on a real case. It demonstrates the difficulty experienced by many women who are entrapped by an abusive homelife, cultural insensitivity and alternative values. Finally it demonstrates the often apparent weaknesses of the English Legal System. I recommend this DVD

This movie was awesome! The downfall was lots of scenes where cut from when I watched it before.
With such a movie these needed to be there to really appreciate and understand the extent of her turmoil.

Good film but no subtitles in any language, not even for the hard of hearing. So all in all not very useful as I wanted the film for language teaching.

i am currently studying about the difference manslaughter and murder at my college course. i am studying paralegal course and i am hoping to become a lawyer. the teacher bought this film to one of our classes and it was an amazing film. it showed the difficulties in proving provocation and diminished responsibility and also introduced battered womens syndrome to the courts in the UK.

brilliant film and i will recommend it to anyone who is studying law and also people who love true stories as this is a true story.
