About the film

In the film, which is directed by veteran actor-director Aparna Sen, Naina, the one who survives the rape, is portrayed by Konkona.

She plays Naina Mishra, a New Delhi university professor teaching criminal psychology.

In the film’s frisky opening sequences, we can tell Naina, a Hindu, is very much in love with her Muslim husband Aftab (Arjun Rampal), also a university professor.

Yet, after she has been raped, she cannot bear her husband to touch her, the trauma is so deep.

Going against her husband's will, Naina goes on to interview her rapist, who was hanged to death by the court, to explore the reasons on why a man turns into a sexual predator.

Speaking about the screening of her film, Konkona earlier told India Blooms, "Today our film The Rapist is getting screened at Nandan. This is a very proud moment. I am very excited. It's a very special day. I am meeting a lot of known people from the film community here after a long time. So I am feeling great."

"The film deals with a difficult subject. I am watching this film for the first time," she had added.

The Rapist was also screened at the Busan International Film Festival and Kolkata International Film Festival.
