Voot Selects' Original Series ILLEGAL's first look out
Voot Select is gearing up to present its next Original series after the well-received The Raikar Case', and it is called 'Illegal'. The streaming platform has just released the first look teaser of the new show on all its social media handles. Originally planned for an April release, Illegal seems set to release some time this month. The first teaser of the series has certainly upped the ante considerably, and we simply cannot wait for the show to land.
The plot of 'Illegal' is singularly unique for the Indian OTT space. It is a compelling courtroom drama that explores the limitations of the Indian judicial system and whether justice is well and truly served within the confines of the law. Or is the law, and its many loopholes, manipulated by wily, corrupt and greedy lawyers to twist and suit it to a pre-conceived narrative?
Piyush Mishra, Neha Sharma, Parul Gulati, Satyadeep Mishra and Akshay Oberoi play lawyers in the series, while Kubbra Sait plays a girl who is put behind bars for an unnamed offence. Taher Shabbir Mithaiwala, Deepak Tijori, Aditi Tailang and Vicky Arora also play vital roles in the series.
The series has been written by Reshu Nath and directed by Sahir Raza. It has been produced by Samar Khan and Irada Entertainment. Its cinematography has been handled by ace cinematographer Sameer Arya, and Vikram Bhatt is on board as the creative producer.
The official logline of 'Illegal' reads — "Two high profile cases, a battery of high-power legal eagles & the number one law firm of the country. A first of its kind intense, a racy legal drama that questions whether all lawyers are mercenaries or can some resist the lure of greed, ambition and power; and fight to win defining judgements that hold the bar of justice high and restore faith in humanity?"
No release date has been given for Illegal yet. Check out the first look teaser of Illegal-
