Criminal Justice Season 3 review

Criminal Justice Season 3 cast: Pankaj Tripathi, Swastika Mukherjee, Purab Kohli, Gaurav Gera

Criminal Justice Season 3 director: Rohan Sippy

Canny lawyer Madhav Mishra, as played by Pankaj Tripathi, is back again

The third season follows the story of Zara, a pre-teen TV star who mysteriously goes missing on a family trip and is then found dead. Zara has a teenage older brother in Mukul, who is apparently also suffering from an Oedipus like sibling complex

Though this current season shifts its focus to the juvenile justice system, it feels, more or less an echo of the first season.

This third season is also vastly let down by a flashy, almost insincere portrayal of young teenagers

Moreover, the show doesn’t even know how to use its linchpins, the acting heavyweights it has almost always relied on to drag material that has never really hit the high notes of inspiration or intrigue

Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach premieres on Disney+ Hotstar on August 26.
