What is Section 84? As per a digital repository of all Central and State Acts ‘Section 84’ deals with ‘Act of a person of unsound mind’, and states that ‘Nothing is an offence which is done by a person who, at the time of doing it, by reason of unsoundness of mind, is incapable of knowing the nature of the act, or that he is doing what is either wrong or contrary to law.’
In the recent past, Amitabh Bachchan was seen in quite a few films in roles related to law. In Runway 34, Chehre, Badla, but it is Pink that immediately comes to mind for the topic that the film tackled and the way it was presented. One wonders, in Section 84, which side of law would Amitabh Bachchan’s character stand. Whichever, it would be, but he stands tall.
Director Ribhu Dasgupta expresses, “I feel happy, blessed, and honoured to collaborate with Sir again. Looking forward to it.”
Reliance Entertainment, Film Hangar, Saraswati Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., and Filmmaker Ribhu Dasgupta’s next film, a courtroom drama thriller, ‘Section 84’, in association with Jio Studios, will star the legendary Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role. This film will mark legendary thespian Amitabh Bachchan and Ribhu Dasgupta’s third collaboration together after the critical success of Yudh (Indian Television thriller miniseries released in 2014) & Te3n (released in 2016).
