  • Bollywood film about HBV

    A Bollywood film about ‘honour’-based violence (HBV) in Britain, called Honour Killings, is set to be released next year. It focuses on three generations of families:

    “Firstly, there is the story of an affluent Sikh businessman - played by the veteran of Hindi cinema Prem Chopra - who is jailed for murdering his daughter after she fell in love with a Muslim man.

    When his grandson then also begins a secret relationship with a Muslim woman, it leaves her father racked by indecision, as he weighs up whether he too must kill to protect his family’s honour.

    The tension builds with the prospect of history repeating itself as romance again crosses the religious divide. In spite of the heavy subject matter, no Bollywood-style film could go without fizzing song and dance routines to draw in the crowds.”

    I hope it does well.
