STAR News launches courtroom drama <i>Insaaf Ka Tarazu</i>

STAR News has launched its new show ‘Insaaf Ka Tarazu’ at 10:30 am on November 28. This is not another ‘Aap Ki Adalat’, and it examines some of India’s landmark legal cases from both the plaintiff and defendant’s perspective, claims STAR News.

Crime show seems be the flavour of the season for news channels given the introduction of new shows like ‘Andha Qanoon’ on Zee News, ‘Vardaat ‘on Aajtak and ‘Sansani’ on STAR News. The channel, however, claims that this is not just a crime show and the show will not only provide a better understanding of the legalities of crime but also fill the information vacuum. The legal issues discussed would either be very current ones or the issues that are significant because of their relevance to present incidents.

Asked whether the show would go on the lines of ‘Bhanwar’ which used to be aired on Sony, Shazi Zaman, Senior Executive Producer, STAR News, says, “The show is a legal show but within the ambit of news. It’s done in a fictional manner but the content falls within the genre of news. It will be dramatic and telegenic. It will be viewer friendly and user friendly with little use of legal jargon and an effort to explain the legalities shown”.

Whether this courtroom drama is going to be different from the crime shows on other news channels and attract more viewers is a decision the audience will take.
