Mohalel is an Islamic practice in which a woman, after being unilaterally divorced by a man, marries another man, consummates the marriage, and divorces again so as to be able to remarry her former husband. Karimi was arrested after the Revolution for making Mohalel and spent several months in prison. The film was denounced by clerics, including Morteza Motahhari, and led to Nosrat Karimi being banned from working and teaching in addition to his prison sentence.
