Bollywood films like Singham, according to a judge in Bombay, send a dangerous message about the need for justice

<p>Judge Gautam Patel of the Bombay High Court stated, “Bollywood movies of mega superstars like ‘Singham’ set a wrong example and share a dangerous message to the viewers.” He was speaking at an event hosted by the Indian Police Foundation to commemorate Police Reforms Day on Friday. He said that in addition to sending the incorrect message, the movie depiction of the “instant delivery of justice” by a heroic police officer also fostered “impatience” with the legal system.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-198499″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-23t182822.971.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com download 2023 09 23t182822.971″ width=”1323″ height=”892″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-23t182822.971.jpg 273w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-2023-09-23t182822.971-150×101.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1323px) 100vw, 1323px” title=”Bollywood films like Singham, according to a judge in Bombay, send a dangerous message about the need for justice 6″></p>
<p>“Judges are commonly portrayed in movies as being timid, submissive, wearing heavy spectacles, and often dressed very poorly. They argue that the legal system absolves the guilty. Justice is delivered alone by the valiant officer. The climactic sequence of the film Singham, in which the whole police force surrounds a politician portrayed by Prakash Raj, demonstrates that justice has been done. Justice Gautam Patel was cited by India Today as saying, “But I wonder, has it.</p>
<p>When the public believes that the courts are not carrying out their duties, it cheers when the police step in, according to Justice Patel, who also said that the perception of the police as “bullies, corrupt, and unaccountable” is a populist one. He gave the highly appreciated example of a rape suspect who was slain in a confrontation while purportedly attempting to escape.</p>
<p>He praised Prakash Singh, a former director general of police in Uttar Pradesh who had petitioned the Supreme Court for changes to the way the police apparatus operates.</p>
<p>Additionally, he said that the 2006 police reforms judgment was “opportunity missed” because of its restricted scope. He said that other important changes that are unquestionably required relate to not what they should do but how to go about it, and that police reforms cannot be considered in isolation or in a separate box.</p>
