One fine night Bikram Chandra is murdered by Anu and she confesses the crime in front of police.

It’s his first night after marriage and he has to leave for Mumbai leaving behind his Wife Ratna Mishra. When he reached Mumbai and takes up the case of Anu Chandra, he find it very difficult to communicate with Any and seeks help of Nikhat played by Anupriya Goenka.

Nikhat is hesitant to help him, as after what has happened in season 1. She has still not settled down and Bikram has put in recommendations for her Job. If she is seen helping Madhav with case of Anu Chandra then she might not get any job with any top lawyer firms.

And her fears become reality. Madhav and Nikhat are fighting a battle which is next to impossible to win as the only Two people present in that closed room on night of the murder cannot help them. Bikram Chandra is dead and Anu Chandra will not speak up.

Will they be able to get justice ? Will they be able to bring out the truth behind closed doors to the world, the story revolves around the same.

Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors Review: Screenplay & Direction

Rohan Sippy comes up with a story which has potential to shake the audience and think about the reality as they witness it as audience sitting in their rooms and consuming the information via secondary sources like news channels and news papers or social media.

He delivers the story wrapped in a gripping screenplay and leaves right times for emotions, character build ups and thrills.

A Tight screenplay is held the battle won and that’s what has happened with Criminal Justice Season 2.

Apurva Asrani Delivers a gripping story with the right message and again leaves audience wanting for more.

Criminal Justice: Behind Closed Doors Review: Performances

Right from main characters to small roles, each and every actor gives their 100% to the role they play and as a result you get to see stunning story unfold on your screen.

The lead of the show Madhav Mishra played by Pankaj Tripathi keeps the audience hooked to the screen. Pankaj Tripathi is one of the finest actors right now in India and can play a range of characters. While he made us laugh in films like Stree, he also entertained us earlier this year on OTT with Mirzapur. He comes back to your screens to end the year on a high note and excels as Madhav Mishra. This is one of his finest performances and his character arc sees major upgrades as he is now married to Ratna and has to share his otherwise Nomadic Life with his Wife.

Anupriya Goenka plays Nikhat Husain and it’s a challenge to match match up to a powerhouse like Pankaj Tripathi in each and every frame. And she delivers nothing less than perfection and matches up to Madhav Mishra in each and every frame and often overpowers him in some scenes. She not only plays a vital role and character arc is further taken to new heights but this is a landmark project for her. She will always be remembered for playing Nikhat Husain and will get a lot of new big projects after this.

Kirti Kulhari playing Anu Chandra again delivers a stunning performance. Her character is the most difficult character in the series as she has to portray a wide range of emotions. Anu Chandra is suffering from anxiety and depression and she is fighting a fight in which she thinks that she is the culprit. She has given up on Life but when Bikram Chandra dies on his hospital bed and she realizes that her son will be taken away and her daughter will have no no future, that’s the moment when her fight begins.

These are three central characters of the film but each and every artist in the cast gives a stunning performance and takes your viewing experience to an altogether different level.
