Criminal Justice Season 3: Has Lost Its Charm

Criminal Justice Season 3 is here, and fans are excited to witness the new case our iconic lawyer Madhav Mishra has in his grasp. Produced by Applause Entertainment in association with BBC Studios, the latest season of this Hostar Originals is directed by Rohan Sippy.


The series will feature Pankaj Tripathi reprising his role as Madhav Mishra and Shweta Basu Prasad as Lekha. The new cast members include Purab Kohli as Neeraj, Swastika Mukherjee as Avantika, Aditya Gupta as Mukul, Deshna Dugad as Zara along with Gaurav Gera. Returning to the show are Addinath Kothare, Kalyanee Mulay, and Khushboo Atre in their previous roles. Criminal Justice Adhura Sach consists of 8 episodes, each 40-50 minutes long.

It has a stellar supporting cast and a genre that works on OTT unlike any other. Despite this, the show manages to bore one to death, which must rank as some achievement. Criminal Justice season 3 is not just dull and predictable but also a wasted opportunity, given the subject matter at hand.

After two terrific seasons about India’s criminal justice system trappings and the perceptions of guilt, Adhura Sach decides the show wants to be a run-of-the-mill murder mystery. The story, this time, revolves around the death of famous child actor Zara Ahuja with all the clues pointing at her minor stepbrother Mukul. But Mukul’s mother (Swastika Mukherjee) isn’t convinced and asks advocate Madhav Mishra (Pankaj Tripathi) for help. The crux of the story is how Pankaj unravels the mystery and fends off the challenge of a new public prosecutor (Shweta Basu Prasad).

The biggest flaw with Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach is the show is confused about what it wants to be. The first two seasons, as I mentioned, were about the shortcomings of India’s legal systems and how the accused can become victims themselves. This track is present in the third season but overshadowed by a more traditional whodunnit track. The show itself discards its USP, something that helped it stand out from among the crowd of murder mysteries in the OTT scene.
