Netflix has unveiled the trailer of Delhi Crime directed by Indo-Canadian filmmaker Richie Mehta, which is based on Nirbhaya rape case.
The seven-part series fictionalized series is based on the case files of the Delhi Police, of the 2012 Nirbhaya rape case. It follows DCP Vartika Chaturvedi (Shefali Shah), the investigating officer, to find the perpetrators of the crime. With emotions, of the officer who's a mother, and the whole country charged, this hunt is like none ever before. The series also stars Rasika Dugal, Rajesh Tailang, Adil Hussain, Gopal Datt, and Vinod Sherawat in important roles. Watch the trailer here.
It is based on the 2012 rape case known as Nirbhaya, where a 23-year old Jyoti Singh Pandey and her friend were attacked in a bus in Delhi. After knocking him unconscious, she was beaten, attacked and gang raped by the six men, including the driver. With severe damage to her organs due to the brutality including using a rod, the injuries led to her eventual death. The country decided to call her Nirbhaya (without fear) to salve its own wounds, though the fear she went through is unimaginable.
With one of the accused dying in jail during the trial period, the other four adult convicts were sentenced to death by hanging. Mohammad Afroz, the only minor amongst them, was released on 20 December 2015, after serving the maximum sentence of three years.
Richie Mehta's series premiered at Sundance Film Festival in the Indie Episodic Section, where it was acquired by Netflix. Delhi Crime will start streaming from March 22. Find it here.
