Section 375 Movie Review: “We are within the business of law, not justice,” says Akshaye Khanna to Richa Chadda in one in all the foremost poignant moments of Section 375, and nothing might have summed up director Ajay Bahl’s film about a ‘Rape Trial‘. In fact, this blurred vision of truth and justice is that the hallmark of Section 375 that tries to bring out a brand-new facet of the argument.
There are an alleged rape victim Anjali (Meera Chopra), an alleged rapist Rohan (Rahul Bhat), and two warring lawyers Tarun (Akshaye Khanna) and Hiral (Richa Chadda). The director ne’er tells us what precisely happened on the date of the crime, however, he reconstructs the events as per the lawyers’ versions. It’s a ploy remain us blinkered, and not allow us to be inclined towards one party.
Section 375 focuses on the courtroom drama and also the outside factors influencing a judge’s call. In the process, we tend to witness the loopholes of the law and the way it may well be abused, an accusation faced with laws relating to sexual harassment at several occasions. This also seems to be the film’s intention.
SCIPL Presents A Panorama Studios Production, We bring to the official trailer of the movie “SECTION 375”. The film features Akshaye Khanna, Richa Chadha, Meera Chopra & Rahul Bhat and is directed by Ajay Bahl. The movie is produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak, Abhishek Pathak & SCIPL.
The accuser and also the defendant present their sides of the story and so they’re reconstructed before of the judges, who additionally appear to be facing perplexity relating to the real chain of events. Bahl wins the primary battle here as he with success places a doubt regarding the accuser’s intentions within the viewer’s mind.
He desires to convey, in no unsure terms, that albeit the decision has been given, it may still not be correct, as provided for in the law, and consequently justice may not have been served.
Similarly to BA Pass, Bahl’s spectacular directorial debut regarding the sinister lanes of Delhi’s Paharganj, this one also intends to bring out the dark side of the truth. There are no right or wrong, however dubious characters with ambiguous morality.
As the defense solicitor, Akshaye Khanna has excelled. He hasn’t placed even one foot wrong, and is clearly in the zone of the supposed character. The same can’t be same regarding Richa Chadda tho‘, who couldn’t match up to her counterpart in energy and screen presence.
For most half of it, Section 375 keeps you confused about the possible outcome of the case, and that’s a moral victory Bahl can claim. But then he takes a stand and dilutes the entire idea of being an unbiased presenter of facts of a rape case.
Section 375 is engaging and your views towards the film will depend on which side you would like to be.
