The first two seasons of Criminal Justice earned audiences and critics a considerable amount of love and praise. On Disney Plus Hotstar, Criminal Justice Season 3 is now streaming. Our juvenile justice system, prison life, and social pressures are all themes explored in Season 3. However, Criminal Justice’s current season is not as intriguing and suspenseful as fans had predicted, but Pankaj Tripathi’s courtroom drama deserves a watch. Pankaj Tripathi makes a spectacular return in his role as a clever lawyer.
Criminal Justice Season 3 is helmed by Rohan Sippy and presented by BBC Studios. Over eight episodes, the web series highlights the struggles of raising teens in today’s highly connected, Instagram-obsessed culture and the prevalent use of party drugs among youngsters. Although the build-up in the first few episodes is compelling, it drags on too long before the actual action and courtroom drama start. A teenager who has struggled through adolescence and is presently treated like a criminal before he can even seek justice in court features as the story’s lead.
A compelling courtroom drama with emotionally draining sequences is crafted by Rohan Sippy and his writing team. The legal drama has received mixed reviews from critics. Some have praised it for being engrossing, while others have criticized it for being monotonous.
Criminal Justice Season 3 Starcast: Pankaj Tripathi, Shweta Basu Prasad, Purab Kohli, Swastika Mukherjee, Gaurav Gera, Aditya Gupta, and Deshna Dugad.
Criminal Justice Season 3 Director: Rohan Sippy
This time, the plot centers on the murder of famous child actor Zara Ahuja, with all the evidence directed to her little stepbrother Mukul. However, Mukul’s mother (Swastika Mukherjee) isn’t convinced and seeks aid from lawyer Madhav Mishra (Pankaj Tripathi). The film’s main plot is how Pankaj cracks the puzzle and beats the opposition of a new public prosecutor (Shweta Basu Prasad).
The show is substantially let down by the writing. The flow is uneven, and the story is fragmented. The biggest mistake the show makes is that, despite being a series about youngsters, it does not correctly depict the young generation’s emotions, attitudes, and behavior. We believe Bijesh Jayarajan could have enhanced the suspense by bringing more profound mysteries to other characters.
The public prosecutor who is prejudiced and shows no sympathy for the guilty is portrayed well by Shweta Basu Prasad. Aaditya, one of the show’s leading characters, becomes repetitive in his facial expressions and emotions. In his role as Zara’s father, Purab Kohli performed well. A convincing performance is delivered by Gaurav Gera. Zara, portrayed by Deshna Dugad, has a small role but the right approach. Actors Swastika Mukherjee and others performed well in their roles.
Direction & Music
The series is helmed by Rohan Sippy, but his work appeared a little mediocre at this time. Even after six episodes, we still don’t understand the characters well, which makes things unpleasant. Technically, all of the seasons in Criminal Justice look decent. The series’ soundtrack matches the scenes well, and, in some instances, it almost appears neutral. Despite most of the sequences being shot inside, the cinematography is good. The production values are fair.
Ultimately, we can say that watching Criminal Justice 3 is a nice trip. It deserves a watch, particularly if you enjoy this genre and are a Pankaj Tripathi fan.
