ZEE5, India’s largest domestic OTT platform, handpicks content inspired stories that make for impactful films and is now a courtroom drama set on an economic offence. The wait for a glimpse of ‘420 IPC’ starring veteran actors like Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey, Gul Panag and promising actor Rohan Vinod Mehra is over as the suspense drama trailer was released by the makers recently.
Director Manish Gupta while sharing his thoughts on choosing this topic said, “I came across the idea of 420 IPC during my three years of intensive research for my last courtroom drama Section 375, during which I came across Economic Offenses cases. There were strange court procedures involved – which I found to be an unexplored subject for a film.”
He further adds, “During pre-production and shooting, I have painstakingly recreated these court procedures to create a sense of realism. Every document shown in the film was genuine and authentic from the law books, which have The actors Rohan Vinod Mehra and Ranvir Shorey put in their hands. 420 IPC is fiction work. But the court procedures depicted in the film are authentic. I would describe the film as a court procedural drama.”
Directed by Manish Gupta and produced by Zee Studios and Rajesh Kejriwal and Gurpal Sachar under their banner Curious Digital PL, the film centres on a chartered accountant Bansi Keswani (Pathak), who is arrested for an economic offence. Mehra plays Pathak’s defence lawyer, while Shourie will be seen playing the role of an eccentric Parsi public prosecutor, with Panag playing the role of Pathak’s wife.
