    Review has spoilers

    A prominent film director named Rohan Khurana ( Rahul Bhat ) is accused of rape by an assistant of his film's costume maker . He pleads not guilty to the charges and hires an expensive lawyer named Tarun Saluja ( Akshaye Khanna ) to fight his case . The victim Anjali Dangle's ( Meera Chopra ) case is being handled by lawyer Hiral Gandhi ( Richa Chadda ) .

    Tarun changes the testimony of his defendant to admitting that he had consensual sex with Anjali , that he was using his power and position in the film industry to get Anjali assignments for costume designing in return for sexual favours . But Anjali wanted a real relationship with him and when he refused she took revenge by charging him with rape . This destroys Rohan's relationship with his wife but gives him a chance to prove himself innocent .

    Tarun then asks Anjali to come to the witness box and totally tears apart her rape accusations by showing how she made injuries on herself . So much so that her lawyer Hiral Gandhi herself is convinced that Rohan is innocent . But the judgement according to section 375 of the Indian penal code by the judges is that Rohan is guilty . So what was the point of the movie ? To prove how section 375 can be misused by jilted women to falsely implicate men in rape charges ?

    The best part of the film is the arguments and counter arguments brilliantly presented by both sides in court , the best part being Tarun proving with statistics that India is not the rape capital of the world . The medical examination of the victim and the procedure of how police handle rape cases is also illuminated upon . In the end you do feel for the accused but that's how the legal systemworks .

    Acting is good by everyone and colours photography background music is all okay .Some of the arguments in court are partly in English while some dialogues in the film are in the Marathi language as the victim and the police and one of the judges are shown to have Marathi as their mother tongue . It can be watched by the thinking audience , but one senses a lack of clear direction as to what was the point of the movie in the end .

    Verdict---Decent .

    Three stars out of five .

    These chutiyas bring these kinds of situations upon themselves!
    Don't have sex with someone you're not married to (marital rape cannot be any more than ground for immediate divorce, even if real rapists go unpunished), be it be it mistress or casual girlfriend, unless you're prepared to go on ahead with it if she wants to... Or be prepared to be fucked, this time not literally.

    I know a guy preparing for UPSC who had sex with his girlfriend, but kept postponing the marriage for years until he could clear it. She on the other hand, started feeling insecure & threatened to charge him with "manipulating her into having sexual intercourse by promise of marriage" ...real mess ensued.
    In virginity obsessed India, women like her still feel being "tricked, used for sex & discarded" instead of considering it a casual/consensual sexual relationship, from which both parties healthily broke up.
