5 reasons that make Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors the most anticipated show

After the runaway success of Criminal Justice last year, Hotstar Specials is all set to entertain the audience with its next chapter in the franchise titled Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors. Pankaj Tripathi is returning to portray the role of lawyer Madhav Mishra, who is fighting the toughest case of his career along with Nikhat Hussain, once again being portrayed by Anupriya Goenka. The duo is defending the prime accused Anu Chandra, portrayed by Kirti Kulhari, who has confessed to stabbing her husband, an eminent lawyer – Bikram Chandra and is guilty in the eyes of law. While many believe it to be an open-and-shut case, Anu’s subsequent silence and unwillingness to defend herself begs the question – is there more to the case than what meets the eye?

Here are five reasons that make Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors a must watch:

1. Mishraji is back!
One of the most loved actors Pankaj Tripathi is returning to portray a character that has made an impression on the audience – that of lawyer Madhav Mishra. This time around, the challenge at hand for Madhav Mishra is the toughest as his client is refusing to speak and because he is going against a formidable team that is defending an eminent lawyer. Let’s see how he solves an open and shut case this time.

2. Featuring strong and bold women
Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors is a stand-out courtroom drama as it focuses and centres around women, all with different personalities and different ways of dealing with their life and problems. The murder accused is a housewife, who has confessed to stabbing her husband and is guilty in the eyes of the law. Her defense team is joined by a lawyer Nikhat Hussain, whose instinct as a woman tells her that there is more to Anu Chandra’s story, and that she is determined to find out about it.

3. An eye-opening narrative
Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors is a riveting story that will keep the audience engrossed till the very end. More so, the courtroom drama will raise questions on less-spoken societal issues, it will make its viewers more informed, and will also initiate conversations around whether the law is equipped to serve both men and women, equally. In fact, the makers even consulted a team of lawyers to ensure that they got the nuances and legal terminologies right, and did in-depth research to ensure that they told the story insightfully and sensitively.

4. Showcases life and ordeal of women in prison
Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors is one of the few stories in India to showcase the life and ordeal of women in prison. With only a limited number of resources available for reference, the makers had a challenging time recreating a women’s prison. However, the actors along with directors Rohan Sippy and Arjun Mukerjee have lauded the design team’s work on building a set that looks exactly like a real jail, with actor Shilpa Shukla even saying that it helped her get into the skin of her character Ishani Nath.

5. Ensemble cast with fine creators at the helm
An outstanding cast and crew have brought this exceptional story to life, insightfully and sensitively. Along with Pankaj Tripathi, Kirti Kulhari and Anupriya Goenka, the cast in the show also includes powerhouse talents like Ashish Vidyarthi, Deepti Naval, Jisshu Sengupta, Shilpa Shukla, Pankaj Saraswat, Ayaz Khan, Kalyanee Mulay, Ajeet Singh Palawat, Khushboo Atre, Tirrtha Murbadkar, and others. The eight-part courtroom drama series has been directed by  Rohan Sippy, Arjun Mukerjee, written by Apurva Asrani and produced by Applause Entertainment in association with BBC Studios.
