Films like Rivaaz are best examples of why we might in the future think of having an entrance exam for people wanting to make a movie.

The story of a girl being forced into prostitution by her father in accordance to an age old custom, Rivaaz is meant to address the issue of forced prostitution and the larger issue of women and their status in rural India. So we have village belles dressed like they are straight out of the nearest Lakme saloon, and city bred men, who would start clinking pics the moment they see a ghaagara clad girl with matki in her hands.

The film boasts of no story whatsoever. There are inane dialogues, ridiculous scenes, and perhaps the worst acting credits ever assembled in a single film frame in the history of mankind. Models fresh from the recent fashion weeks are decked up as village girls, showing off ample skin and nakhras. The villages themselves seem like a Yash Raj set.

Films like Rivaaz are the ones that political parties and the respective khaps or civil groups should be protesting against. It makes a mockery, in fact a terrible joke of something as serious as prostitution. The worst part is, it doesn't even apologize. Stay far far away from this film, if it can be called that. For the sake of your own sanity.
