Delhi Crime - TV Series (5/5)

Delhi Crime - Just another day in the Police Force

Delhi Crime is based on the 2012 Delhi infamous "Nirbhaya" gang rape case that took place in the neighbourhood of South Delhi. The series follows the story in the aftermath of the gang rape, where DCP - Vartika Chaturvedi (Shefali Shah) is tasked to investigate the crime and catch all rapists.
The series starts with PCR van picks up two victims of Gang Rape on the sideway of Munirka Flyover and further shows how investigation begins to unfold to catch criminals with no records and limited clues.

The series focused on the conditions our police force works by putting the tireless amount of duty hours in extremely poor condition with the limited budget and unlimited amount of pressure of media, politicians and public at large. "Delhi Crime" takes us inside the mind and life of police officers who are quick to be blamed for any crimes happens around us.

It was superbly written and directed by Richie Mehta who carefully takes us through the investigation process as realistically as possible. You will feel you are part of the investigation and not even a single frame will make you feel you are watching any drama. Shefali Shah rules here with her natural portrayal of the role of DCP where she posses a strong personality with a bit of sensitivity side as a loving mother as well. This is indeed her best performance ever and you can't imagine anyone else replacing her for this role. Rasika Dugal, Adil Hussain and Rajesh Telang are other gems here who just blends in with their characters. Special kudos to casting and each performer even the ones who have done small roles in the side are marvellous.

I just binged watched entire season as you can't stop it once you start watching. It shows different aspects of society where we comfortably comment on police force without knowing how they live and yet perform their duty to protect us. This is by far the best Indian TV Series I have seen without even a single flaw.
