Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors trailer out
Pankaj Tripathi returns as Madhav Mishra for what is deemed the toughest case of his career
Hotstar Specials has dropped the trailer of Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors. In the new chapter, Pankaj Tripathi returns as Madhav Mishra for what is deemed the toughest case of his career. The prime accused, Anu Chandra, 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 this?
Along with Kirti Kulhari as Anu and Anupriya Goenka as Mishra’s unlikely partner, Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors features Deepti Naval, Mita Vashisht, Ashish Vidyarthi, Jisshu Sengupta, Shilpa Shukla, Pankaj Saraswat, Ayaz Khan, Kalyanee Mulay, Ajeet Singh Palawat, Khushboo Atre, Tirrtha Murbadkar, and others.
The eight-episode courtroom drama series has been directed by Rohan Sippy and Arjun Mukerjee, and written by Apurva Asrani. It is set to be launched on December 24 on Disney+ Hotstar.
Pankaj Tripathi shared, “It’s heartening to know that Madhav Mishra made such an impression on audiences that the makers brought him back for the second chapter – I hope that I can live up to the expectations! What I love about this character is his humility and quirk that cuts through intense moments with such humor and grace.”
Director Rohan Sippy said, “A lot of research has gone behind the making of Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors, and it was crucial for us to approach the storyline insightfully and sensitively. We don’t often see portrayals of women accused of brutal crimes, and this is definitely one of the few shows that probes this aspect deeply. The series will make you question the very reality of today’s time.”
