Colors to launch crime-legal drama ‘Courtroom’ on 9 Feb
MUMBAI: Hindi GEC Colors is set to launch its new show ‘Courtroom’, a crime-legal drama that explores the essence of the Indian legal system and affects the collective consciousness in a positive way. Premiering on 9th February and produced by Optimystix Entertainment India, ‘Courtroom’ is inspired by real court cases as it unveils the actual proceedings, from charges to verdicts with Sacchai Haazir Ho as its premise.
On bringing forth shows that drives awareness, Viacom18 Head Hindi Mass Entertainment, and Kids TV Network Nina Elavia Jaipuria 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 at in the court of law which is considered the most sanctimonious place in a legal system. The show is one-of-a-kind in the Hindi General Entertainment space and its edge of the seat content will make it an interesting viewing proposition.”
Viacom18 Chief Content Officer, Hindi Mass Entertainment Manisha Sharma 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 will present cases inspired from real life cases. The episodes will highlight cases like Me too, Road rage, etc. These cases are stories of conviction and courage as the court trials are a long and tedious process.”
Optimystix Entertainment India Founding Chairman and MD Vipul D Shah 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 Hois 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.”
To deliberate on the topic of #DecodingJustice, an engaging panel discussion was organised in Delhi on 5th February 2019. Continuing to raise awareness about the judicial system, the channel will conduct similar discussion 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.
Hosted and narrated by Vikas Kumar and produced by Optimystix Entertainment India, ‘Courtroom – Sacchai Haazir Ho’ premieres on 9th February and will air every Saturday and Sunday at 7 pm only on Colors.
