Akshay Khanna regains his Super form as an Actor and stands out as the Best among the cast. Richa Chadda as Hiral is Fantastic, Meera Chopra is a total Surprise package as she delivers a Honest and convincing act. Rahul Bhat too doesn’t miss any opportunity to shine. Screenplay is gripping and has that up and down moments to keep you hooked. Dialogues are quite harrassing and brutal but needful. Manish Gupta deserves appreciation for writing such a brave script and that too with some negative kind of climax to keep faith on judicial system alive. Ajay Bahl drives this Thrilling Courtroom drama with sensibility and the message he was trying to tell is successfully reached.
In a nutshell, Section 375 is a Brilliant Courtroom drama which should be in your watchlist if you desire to watch something different from mainstream cinema. The film gets it right judicially because Rape is a serious criminal offence and the outburst is always on higher side but does that really make it easy for some people to misuse our law? That’s where the sentiments goes wrong and the climax leaves you thinking over it. Keep thinking while the film still remains in your mind.
