Colors is set to launch its new show ‘Courtroom’, a crime-legal drama, which will revolve around the Indian legal system. The show will premier on February 9.

Produced by Optimystix Entertainment India Pvt Ltd, ‘Courtroom’ has been inspired by real court cases and will deal with actual proceedings, charges and verdicts. 

Nina Elavia Jaipuria – Head, Hindi Mass Entertainment and Kids TV Network, Viacom18, said: “At Colors, it has always been our conscious endeavour to pick up topics that are relatable and furthers the well being of the society at large. The concept of ‘Courtroom’ has been designed to give viewers a kaleidoscopic view of the legal proceedings and how a verdict is arrived in the court of law which is considered the most sanctimonious place in a legal system. The show is one-of-its-kind in the Hindi General Entertainment space and its edge-of- the seat content will make it an interesting viewing proposition.” 

Manisha Sharma, Chief Content Officer, Hindi Mass Entertainment at Viacom18 said, “Most crime shows end with police putting handcuffs for the culprit which makes people believe that the criminal has been found but that’s only one side of  the story .The real story or the truth is confirmed in the court and with ‘Courtroom’ we will present cases inspired from real-life cases. The episodes will highlight cases like Me Too and Road rage.

These cases are stories of conviction and courage as the court trials are a long and tedious process.” Vipul D Shah (Founding Chairman and MD), Optimystix Entertainment India Pvt Ltd, said: “Whether it is the framing of charges, arguments, recreation of the crime scene, forensics or evidence, a judge is bound by law to give every aspect fair consideration. This is what ‘Courtroom – Sacchai Haazir Ho’ is about. Each case is analysed in two parts and features an ensemble cast. The audience will realise that the role of a judge is much more layered and complex than it appears. After all, the verdict can make or break a person’s life.” 

A panel discussion was organised in Delhi on February 5 on the topic of #DecodingJustice.  The panel featured law enforcement dignitaries to social activists to personalities from the showbiz world like actor Swara Bhasker, Supreme Court Advocate Vivek Naryan Sharma, Rina Mukherjee, Chief Councilator – Surat Geeta Shroff, independent journalist and media consultant - Rina Mukherjee along with the host of the show Vikas Kumar. 
Moderated by Richa Anirudh, the panel deliberated on subjects ranging from decoding the legal system to throwing light on the resources used by the investigators, the panelists discussed the journey of a trial and shared their opinions on landmark cases. They also debated the role of citizens in the judicial system. 

Continuing to raise awareness about the judicial system, the channel will conduct similar discussions across various locations in India. These discussions will continue to bring eminent personalities together and highlight the working of the highest institution of the Indian judicial system.
‘Courtroom’ will be aired every Saturday and Sunday at 7pm.
