Ajay Bahl and Manish Gupta are the writers and directors of the 2019 Hindi-language courtroom drama film Section 375, which is made by Kumar Mangat Pathak, Abhishek Pathak, and SCIPL. It is based on Indian Penal Code Section 375 regulations. Along with Shriswara, Riva Arora, Meera Chopra, and Rahul Bhat playing supporting roles, the movie also stars Akshaye Khanna, Richa Chadda, and Rahul Bhat in main roles.
As a result of Anjali Dangle, a costume designer, accusing Rohan Khurana of rape, he is detained and found guilty by a sessions court. In the High Court, veteran criminal defence attorney Tarun Saluja works hard to disprove the accuser's allegations, while Hiral Gandhi, a visionary and zealous attorney takes on her first significant case and is a former student of Saluja, represents the alleged victim's prosecution and defence. Tarun follows his moral code. Justice is impersonal and believes that a lawyer shouldn't become emotionally invested in a case or engage in an ethical discussion. Law is a fact.
In a flashback session that Hiral also attended, he speculates on how justice is compromised in the absence of adequate defence, observing that the quest for justice is nothing more than a professional opportunity for the judges, the prosecution, and the defence attorneys. We're in the profession of law, not of justice, he says, summarising this. Hiral, on the other hand, has an entirely different outlook because she is so fervently committed to bringing about justice. She had already been forced to leave Tarun's law firm for this precise reason.
In his cross-examination, Tarun reveals the fabrication of evidence, lies, and information that important witnesses withheld. He puts up the hypothesis that Anjali and Rohan had a consensual relationship that first sprang from the need for her to keep her employment, but over time, she became emotionally invested in the union. There is a heated debate between the two over this later on when she learns that Rohan is only looking for a physical connection with her rather than being her life partner. She is denigrated by Rohan, who claims that without her, her career is over. Later, Rohan kicks her out of his second apartment where they had been dating. Anjali says sorry to Rohan after a few days, and the two of them get back together. Later, she reports this incident as rape to the police.
Tarun insists that it is a case of a romance gone wrong but cites the legal distinction between rape and voluntary physical contact. Hiral contends that even if a couple had a previous sexual relationship that was consensual, any future sexual act without the girl's consent constitutes rape. The case contests the legal provisions of Penal Code Section 375, which outlines the circumstances in which a sexual offence qualifies as rape.
The courts are in a difficult position because, on the one hand, it is obvious that Anjali filed this action to exact revenge for her humiliation and, on the other side, there is a widespread belief that powerful and wealthy people take advantage of the disadvantaged. In their chamber, the two judges discuss the matter. Despite circumstantial evidence obviously pointing to false rape claims, a ruling in Tarun's favour would reflect poorly on their qualifications. One of the judges glances down from the balcony and observes out-of-control demonstrations against the accused; it is obvious how they would rule.
Although the bench recognises the merits of Tarun's argument when giving the judgement, public opinion compels the bench to scrupulously follow the law and deliver the verdict in accordance with the general consensus. The judges support the decision of the session court that the victim's account is the most important piece of evidence because there is no indication of force or consent in relation to this specific incident. Kainaz, Rohan's wife, tells him she won't help him any longer and departs. Tarun assures Rohan that he would promptly contact the High Court. Anjali confesses to Hiral in private that everything Tarun had claimed in court was genuine and that she just did this to exact revenge as soon as Rohan is brought to prison. This shocks Hiral, who is afterwards invited to the party by Tarun's family. She is reminded by Tarun that "We're in the business of law, not of justice," a maxim she has now fully grasped.
