Our Opening Day Prediction
The tagline of ‘Article 375’ is ‘marzi ya zabardasti?’ The film is a drama-thriller of sort which revolves around a mystery. A film director is accused of raping his a member of his female crew. While Richa Chadda is fighting the case of the girl, Akshaye Khanna plays the defense lawyer. What is the truth here? We shall wait to find that out and as the title suggests, the film revolves around ‘Article 375’ in the Indian Penal Code. Here’s what we think is the film’s USP and that’s what might strike a chord with cine-goers.
The film comprises of a noteworthy ensemble cast. We’ve got Richa Chaddha who’s known for hard-hitting roles. She’s known for her good work and made a mark for herself whilst taking the route less taken. She’s seen in the role of a lawyer this time around. On the other hand, we have Akshaye Khanna who is rare to see on-screen and such a treat for those who’ve been following his work. The two make a good team to watch. Moreover, they’re against each other in the film. ‘Article 375’ also stars Rahul Bhat and Meera Chopra.
WORD OF MOUTH
If the film has good content, it shall do better with positive word of mouth, just like films like ‘Mulk’, ‘Pink’ and ‘Article 15’. In this day of social media, it’s gotten easier for films with actual good content to do well among the audience. Also, it’s the era of good content as is evident. So, here’s hoping it lives up to the expectations and does even better with word of mouth.
