Indian OTT scene clearly has a dearth of courtroom drama. But worry now, Voot Select has come out with a stunning new show Illegal starring, Piyush Mishra and Neha Sharma. The upcoming original's trailer was just dropped by Voot and boy it stunned us! The Sahir Raza directorial backed by creative producer Vikram Bhatt is a legal drama series starring Piyush Mishra, Neha Sharma, Akshay Oberoi, Satyadeep Mishra and Kubbra Sait and is extremely gritty.
Illegal’s trailer doesn't give away a lot of the plot, but the crux of the matter is about the corruption in the country. In its exploration of courtrooms, the show is set to chronicle everything that goes on behind the scenes of what looks like the most popular law firm in the country. It starts with a montage zipping past the court, crowds of reporters and prison cells. Piyush Mishra plays Janardhan Jaitley who is called the best lawyer in the country. Meanwhile, Neha Sharma’s Niharika Singh is a defence lawyer is labelled as a ‘Mad Lawyer’ by the media. Faced by an extremely challenging rape case, the characters find themselves in a downward spiral in the quest for the truth. The 1:39-minute trailer reveals high profile cases, legal elites and themes of justice, ambition and greed amidst it all.
As far as trailers go, this one is pretty dark joining the OTT platform's catalogue consisting of Asur and Raikar Case, both thrillers. This one is no different but the trailer has street crime noir building on the intrigue and promising a nail-biting story.
Illegal releases on May 12, 2020, on Voot Select.
