Silver screen darling Maya Karin has come to the defence of a much-talked about rape scene in the blockbuster movie, "Ombak Rindu" which has garnered her both fame and fortune. Maya plays the role of a naive and genteel village damsel called Izzah who is sold into prostitution and is raped by her first client who eventually falls passionately in love with her.
Although the poignant book-turned-movie received rave reviews, critics say the rape scene glorified the brutal and dehumanising act.
Maya begs to differ:
In the movie, Maya's character Izzah, who is sold to a prostitution den by her uncle, is "purchased" by rich playboy Hariz (played by Aaron Aziz) after he rapes her in a brothel.
His initial intention was for her to be his mistress but as time passes, Hariz falls for Izzah.
Criticism aside, it has been a good four months into the year for Maya as she rides the waves of success after "Ombak Rindu" grossed over RM11mil at the box office since its release last year.
