Pankaj Tripathi and Vikrant Massey are actors par excellence and after impressing everyone in the web series Mirzapur they are back on screen for another crime thriller titled Criminal Justice. The trailer of the Hotstar Special series is out and proves to be a gripping, suspense thriller. The series also stars Jackie Shroff, Anupriya Goenka and Mita Vashisht. Criminal Justice is a remake of the acclaimed 2008 BBC show of the same name and is directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia and Vishal Furia.
Vikrant plays Aditya, whose life turns topsy-turvy after one incident. After giving an attractive passenger a ride in his cab one night he ends up at her home. The one night stand turns into a nightmare for him when he wakes up with his companion dead next to him and his hands covered in blood. He is soon taken into custody and accused of rape and murder. Although he doesn’t remember much about the night he insists he is innocent. Lawyer Madhav Mishra (played by Tripathi) fights his case in the court and tries to prove his innocence but with dubious means.
