new Delhi: It was billed as a courtroom thriller, but it finishes like a black prison drama. Her heart is in the right place in the second season of Criminal Justice, highlighting a relevant issue that often takes the form of an ugly truth in homes on a social scale. Yet the show stumbles into execution.

Despite noble intentions, Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors is wrong and is not a casualty in the face of marital rape, focusing on primary issues.
The eight-episode season of Rohan Sippy and Arjun Mukherjee begins on a note of high drama, with the crime in question. Vikram Chandra (Jishu Sengupta), hathosh lawyer and seemingly husband and father, is brutally stabbed by his wife Anuradha (Kirti Kulhari), or Anu. The reason for this is clearly evident.
Although the audience is witness to the fact that Anuradha’s action is an act of extreme despair, within the framework of the narrative she has quickly stamped out a pariah, especially by the legal community.
Vikram was popular, and a successful face of the advocacy community. No lawyer is ready to contest Anu’s case. Vikram and Anu’s daughter, the closest to a witness, develop a disturbance to begin with their mother. As Vikram fights for his life in the hospital, his mother (Deepti Naval), an influential figure, puts her weight behind seeking to punish Anu.
When lawyer Madhav Mishra (Pankaj Tripathi) rides to defend Anu Chandra in court. Madhav seeks the help of young lawyer Nikhat Hussain (Anupriya Goenka) to set up his gameplan to prove Anu’s innocence.
Once detained, Anuva Asrani’s writing is difficult and provocative, with Anu facing a nightmare waiting behind bars. However, despite those symptoms, storytelling fails to attract attention. Once the shock value of the prison scenes unfolds, the narrative is repeated. It is not until the final episode that the courtroom drama plays out, and when it does it is very regular in tone and has the momentum to maintain interest. Asrani is unrelated, setting a slow-burning effect.
The show is enriched with spectacular performances, which remains a draw. Keerthi Kulhari forfeits a writer-supported role to deliver a career-best performance. She gets very few lines as Anu and she narrates her trauma using silent silence. Pankaj Tripathi also brings to life an interesting male prototype. Primarily as sixty-four Madhava Mishra, his approach gradually undergoes a transformation as he gets deeper into matter. Tripathi executes the graph with the trademark release. Each actor is suitably cast and is successful in writing their respective roles with vivacity.
Criminal Justice: Beyond the narrative contained in the story behind closed doors, it deserves applause and acknowledgment for the commentary given. Only, the show required a strong sense of purpose beyond its thoughtful tone.
