It was indeed a joyous occasion when the Supreme Court of India took the landmark decision of decriminalising section 377. On September 6, 2018, the campaigners waiting outside the Supreme Court rejoiced when the court unanimously declared the law unconstitutional “in so far as it criminalises consensual sexual conduct between adults of the same sex”. And now ZEE5 originals is bringing to you 377 अब Normal, a web film starring, Maanvi Gagroo, Tanvi Azmi, Zeeshan Ayyub, Kumud Mishra, Shashank Arora and Sid Makkar in pivotal roles.
The film narrates the stories of the five petitioners who lodged complaints against the colonial-era law which, among other things, criminalised homosexual acts as an “unnatural offense” and is slated to start streaming from March 19 on the ZEE5 platform. It follows the petitions filed by five individuals that lead to the verdict of the Supreme Court that Homosexuality Is Not a Crime in India. We must say, the trailer looks promising to the core and rides high on emotions. Might we add, the depth of the characters and their performances as far as we got to see in the trailer were bang on. The story on such a sensitive yet important topic was yet to be told and we are more than happy that such a story is finally being brought on screen. And going by the trailer, it seems like it will make for a good watch. You can catch a glimpse of Pritika Rao in the trailer as well.

The film stars Manvi Gagroo, who was last seen in Four More Shots Please, essaying the role of a homosexual for the film. Senior actress Tanvi Azmi will portray Manvi’s mother in the film. Earlier, according to an entertainment news portal the actress was quoted saying, ”I didn’t even read the script before saying yes. I knew this was something I had to be a part of. I remember the joy I felt after the Supreme Court’s verdict that decriminalised Section 377 last year. It wasn’t a victory for the LGBTQ community only, but one for the entire country. This venture is about that.”
Zeeshan Ayyub, who was recently seen in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, also has an important role in the film. Marathi actress Suhita Thatte will be seen donning a lawyer’s coat in the film who will help get justice served. A film by ZEE5 Originals, 377 Ab Normal is produced by Aditya Narayan Singh and directed by Faruk Kabir.
