Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach Review: Story, Performances & Analysis

The story of Criminal Justice season 3: Adhura Sach revolves around the murder of a teenage superstar named Zara (played by Deshna Duga). Her step-brother Mukul (played by Aaditya Gupta) is a prime suspect in the murder due to their troubled relationship and his jealousy of her success. Even his stepfather, Neeraj (played by Purab Kohli), does not believe his words.

Mukul’s mother, Avantika Ahuja (played by Swastika Mukherjee), reaches out to lawyer Madhav Mishra (played by Pankaj Tripathi) to defend her son. Public prosecutor Lekha (played by Shweta Basu Prasad) has enough evidence to prove Mukul's guilt. However, as the story unfolds, the truth about Zara's murder becomes increasingly complex, with twists and turns that keep the audience guessing.

While the performances are exceptional, with Pankaj Tripathi's acting being a highlight in all three seasons, the series lacks enough elements to keep you fully engaged. Unlike the previous two seasons, where the narrative was a strong point, season 3 failed to meet expectations in that regard. The pace of the narrative is plodding at times, which can leave the viewer feeling bored.

Aaditya Gupta delivers a decent performance as Mukul but is underutilized. His character at a juvenile correctional home deserved more focus, which could have made the story more engaging. Aatm Prakash Mishra as Madhav Mishra’s brother-in-law and assistant Deep is another character who failed to give us a reason for its existence in the story. It could have been better with more character development.

Swastika Mukherjee and Purab Kohli's performances are impressive. Addinath Kothare as Inspector Prasant Waghmare and Kalyanee Mulay as SI Gauri also deliver well in a few scenes during their investigation. Shweta Basu Prasad and Deshna Duga do well in their respective roles.

The story addresses how teenagers in this generation are getting addicted to alcohol, drugs, and other substances, which is a concerning issue for parents.

Final Words:

The series is worth watching for its outstanding performances, but the pace of the story can be slow at times. Nonetheless, the twists and turns in the plot keep the audience intrigued until the end.
