Seasoned Bollywood actor Pankaj Tripathi as Madhav Mishra, a silver medalist (LLB), is back with his toughest case thus far. And, like we all know by now, seedha ya simple inke syllabus mein hai hi nahi!
Disney + Hotstar's critically acclaimed show Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach is back with a twisted case at hand: the death of a popular child star Zara Ahuja, and the prime suspect of her murder—her own brother, Mukul Ahuja.
This Rohan Sippy directorial is undoubtedly one of the most-talked-about shows of under Disney + Hotstar's Hotstar Specials category, which has been produced by Applause Entertainment in association with BBC Studios, and is scheduled to start streaming globally from August 26, 2022.
With wit and humour by his side, the uncanny lawyer Madhav Mishra, reprised by Pankaj Tripathi returns for the third installment of Criminal Justice along with Shweta Basu Prasad, Swastika Mukherjee, Purab Kohli, Aditya Gupta, Deshna Dugad and Gaurav Gera.
Getting into the nitty-gritties of what it means to shoot a legal drama, director Rohan Sippy describes the challenges and excitement of the job.
He said in his statement how he had to face obstacles while filming the court sequences, revealing, “The court sequences are obviously at the centre of a legal show like CJ. Because of scheduling reasons, we had set an almost impossible target to achieve it…"
He then went on to add that his team came to his rescue, especially his cast members, who rendered "great performances" and heightened the overall experience of making the show.
"... But thanks to some great design by our cinematographer, and brilliant collaboration with our associate Shiraz Haider, we were able to not only capture great performances by the lawyers Pankaj Tripathi and Shweta Basu Prasad, but dynamise them with camera movement almost throughout, which helps with the pacing and overall edge of the show."
Sippy was quick to add that the latest additon to his star cast, comprising popular faces such as Purab Kohli and Swastika Mukherjee was another "highlight" for him in this season.
"... It was also extremely challenging to pull off an extended thrill sequence within the remand home, which completely reinterpreted what was on paper and hopefully will keep the audience on the edge of their seats… and of course getting to work with the new cast for the season like Purab and Swastika was a highlight too," said the director.
