Movie Pink sinks awareness about women rights in the country


Released just a week back  Shoojit  Sircar’s  Pink’s impact is already evident in the country.There are many legal terminologies used in the movie. This article focuses & tries to put light to these sections for the layman to understand about women rights.

Zero FIR

The protagonist Meenal is refused for a FIR. Later she was introduced to zero FIR, which enables a woman to register a complaint at any police station regardless of the Jurisdiction & irrespective of the place where the incident occurred. A zero FIR can later be transferred to the concerned Police Station

Section 354

The Villain Rajveer & his goons are charged under section 354 in the movie. It basically means if any person assaults or acts in a manner to outrage the modesty of a woman can be charged under this section.

Section 503

Meenal used this section to register her complaint against the men. It legally means – whoever threatens another person with injury, his reputation or property, or reputation of anyone in whom that person is interested, with intent to cause harm to that person, commits criminal intimidation.

Section 164

During interrogation, Meenal’s lawyer asks questions that are considered too personal. Then the judge offers Meenal the provision of recording her statement in a private space on camera. Under this section a women can record the statement with only one police officer & a woman constable in a convenient  place.

Women & Minors can get bail on weekends

Meenal is arrested on a friday afternoon in the movie. She had to spend two nights in the jail. But then her lawyer Deepak Sehgal played by Amitabh Bachchan explains how women & children can get bail on weekends & the bail proceedings can be heard at a Judge’s residence on Saturday & Sunday.

The movie teaches every women to trust her instincts, understand the law & boldly take action against any injustice they may face.

In the next blog I will throw some light on a list of legal rights every Indian women ought to know.
