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 February 9 and produced by Optimystix Entertainment, Courtroom is inspired by real court cases as it unveils the actual proceedings, from charges to verdicts, with Sacchai Haazir Ho as its premise.

Courtroom explores the idea that whenever a conflict arises, people turn to the legal system and rely on the prudence and wisdom of the court. The court, in turn, gives them a fair hearing before delivering a verdict. Hosted and narrated by Vikas Kumar, Courtroom – Sacchai Haazir Ho will air every Saturday and Sunday at 7 pm.

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-a-kind in the Hindi general entertainment space and its edge-of-the-seat content will make it an interesting viewing proposition.”

Manisha Sharma

Manisha Sharma, Chief Content Officer, Hindi Mass Entertainment at Viacom18, said, “Most crime shows end with police putting handcuffs on 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, Road rage, etc. These cases are stories of conviction and courage as the court trial is a long and tedious process.”

Vipul D Shah (Founding Chairman and MD), Optimystix Entertainment, 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.”

To deliberate on the topic of #DecodingJustice, an engaging panel discussion was organised in Delhi on February 5. The panel featured law enforcement dignitaries, social activists and personalities from the showbiz world like Bollywood actress Swara Bhasker; Supreme Court advocate Vivek Naryan Sharma; Chief Conciliator Rina Mukherjee; independent journalist Surat Geeta Shroff 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 panellists 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.
