Netflix released the trailer of its upcoming police-procedural series, Delhi Crime, which will launch on the service in 190 countries on March 22. Delhi Crime is a seven-part anthology series written and directed by award-winning Indo-Canadian filmmaker Richie Mehta and stars Shefali Shah, Adil Hussain, Rasika Dugal and Rajesh Tailang.
I’ll be honest that I got goosebumps watching the trailer so I’d ask one and all to watch it. Season 1 is based on the Delhi Police investigation into the Nirbhaya case, that shook the nation! To revisit it again after 5 years still wasn’t easy but it’s important to watch the new perspective. The story is a fictionalized depiction of the 2012 investigation into the incident and captures the complexities of the scrutiny, the emotional toll on the investigating team, and their determination to bring the perpetrators to justice in a fraught environment, seen through the lens of the investigation led by Varthika Chaturvedi (Shefali Shah), the police officer in charge.
In the trailer, you can see Shefali Shah the lead protagonist playing Varthika Chaturvedi, head of the police forces. It’s her fight with the people, the victims, the culprits and even her own daughter that adds to the new perspective.
The series premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2019 and has been lauded and garnered stellar reviews from critics across the world.
Produced by Golden Karavan and Ivanhoe Pictures, the first season of Delhi Crime premieres on Netflix on March 22, 2019.
