The one-line summary of Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors does not begin to do justice. It reads: What made Anu Chandra stab her perfect husband? Evidence aur confession toh saamne hai, lekin sach kya hai? While the Criminal Justice review will also only throw a little light on the real problem, the show is way beyond a typical crime thriller, to say the least.
The show features an ensemble cast with everyone giving out great great performances. This courtroom drama sees Pankaj Tripathi and Kirti Kulhari take center stage, and how. Both of them have delivered great performances, with characters that are poles apart. While Kirti plays the accused, Anu, Tripathi is her lawyer, Madhav. Also joining him in the case, is Nikhat, played by Anupriya Goenka. With the likes of Kalyanee, Pankaj Saraswat, among others, the performances all stand out, each one of them.

The story of Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors is not one that is very twisted. However, one needs to follow it to make sense in the end. It is until the very last episode that we see a revelation, changing the entire game of sorts. The show has based its story on a crime, but it has layers of other stories to it. It is these layers that have a lot to do with making it a worthy watch.
It is difficult to outright summarize the whole of Criminal Justice review into a paragraph. None the less, there are highlights that one cannot forget. For one, it is a strong commentary on the kind of treatment women are subjected to, the laws that protect them, and more. Another highlight is the insight into the judicial system, the tropes, including the loopholes.
Season 1 was an outright crime thriller, and it kept us hooked until the end just fine, and season 2 does it as well. However, with Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors, we are truly shown the wrongs from a different perspective. This perspective is shown in a light that we haven’t seen before. With women characters taking over and Tripathi joining them along, this Criminal Justice review is a thumbs up. Cheers to the team for putting this piece together!
