Criminal law: Adhura Sach
Form:
Pankaj Tripathi, Swastika Mukherjee, Purab Kohli

Director: Rohan Sippy

Rating: 3.5/5

While this review is only based on the first two episodes released on Disney+ Hotstar, we can certainly have high hopes for this season of Criminal Justice titled Adhura Sach.

A famous teenage child TV star is murdered and some close relatives are scanned. The investigation reveals some shocking secrets and the battle will now be fought in court. This is where Madhav Mishra (Pankaj Tripathi) comes into the picture. The first two episodes tell us a lot about this, but they promise a lot.

Tripathi has returned to his charming self and is more comfortable with Ratna (Khushboo Atre). He is also less aware of his identity as a lawyer in a mega-city Bihari. His conviction is still infectious and despite little screen time, Tripathi is the one who gets the loudest cheers. He brings much-needed coherence to a show about the rich people of the star city.

Swastika Mukherjee is showing off her reach too, but it’s too early to tell if she’s broadening her horizons! The same goes for Purab Kohli.

What stands out about Criminal Justice 3 is the theme. It’s no longer shocking, but it’s a new topic nonetheless. We’ve seen shows and movies based on adolescents falling prey to substance abuse, but there’s a clear innocence about Adhura Sach that makes it believable. Fortunately, the creators didn’t go overboard with the idea of ​​”wild teens.” Indian society is still a long way from what we’ve seen of American teenagers and their problems, and it shows in the writing. This makes the show recognizable.

Just two episodes isn’t enough to form an opinion, but it’s certainly a good start. This could turn out to be a binge-worthy show. I’m not sure why the creators chose such a streaming strategy.
