Zee5’s latest offering 420 IPC is a hot, heaping pile of mediocrity that fails to do justice to a promising plot and its talented cast. The movie revolves around the life of Bansi, a chartered accountant from a simple background. His world is turned upside down when a client accuses him for a fraud. The rest of the plot deals with the question ‘is he guilty?’. The storyline works fine on paper as it has pretty much everything — right from an underdog as a protagonist to courtroom sequences — that one expects from a film set in the thriller space. The premise sadly fails to even touch its potential as the execution is as sloppy as can be.
