Criminal Justice is a set that silently explains us a lot of things about crime and our Indian Judicial system. It either makes or breaks the trust of a viewer regarding the Indian Law System. It has some amazing plots that portray the illusionary world outside of a middle class family nest. It shows how one reacts, when he or she comes across HI-FI societal parties for the first time and how one finds it difficult to control himself from all this distractions.
In this web series, Adhiya (Vikrant Massey) is supposed to control himself from all the distractions, he faces being a cab driver. He belongs to a middle class family residing in the outskirts of Mumbai. He is pursuing his MBA from a nearby local college, where he is well known for his football playing skills. His life is pretty normal where he can focus on his game as well as career simultaneously. He is not forced to work while pursuing his degree until one day, when he is asked to help his father and brother in law in emergency. He is forced to replace his father’s or brother in law’s duty for a night as a cab driver.
While on duty, he gets in a very bad trap due to his habits. He is innocent but gets distracted by a female passenger. She asks him to come along and party with her at her apartment, where they end up making out with each other. She tries to slip in drug tablet in his mouth while making out and ruins the night for him. When he wakes up in the morning, he finds her dead. It looks like someone has stabbed her badly and brutally murdered after she tried to defend herself. He is all unknown of the fact that who the hell did this to her, as he doesn’t remember any conversations or scenario of last night.
He is blamed for this in the court for being present at the time of murder. He belongs to a middle class family, and it is sure that he can’t afford to split up the bills of his education and court case. The family faces a lot of trouble during the case as no one takes up the matter in the first go. Later, Pankaj Tripathi (Madhav Mishra), takes up his case and ends up badly as he is not able to collect relevant information for proving him innocent.
The case goes in hands of Mandira Mathur (Mita Vashisht) who is a well-known lawyer in the criminal industry. She helps Aditya in the case without charging a single penny from him as she figured out about his innocence, when he met her for the very first time. In the meanwhile, Pankaj tripathi also tried to find the clues for the case along with Mandira Mathur’s assistant Nikhat (Anupriya Goenka).
On the other hand, Aditya meets Mustafa (Jackie Shroff) in the jail where he learns about politics and crime every minute of the day. Jackie shroff wins the hearts of the audience by his witty performance.
Even though it has a predictable ending but it keeps the viewers glued to the screen with same amount of curiosity till the end. It could have been a little more serious as the name suggests, satisfying the users interested in dark criminal action series. It involves pure dark humour and mystery, which satisfies the loyal customer base of Pankaj Tripathi and Vikrant Massey.
