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.
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.
The enchanting trailer begins with Varthika Chaturvedi receiving the call about the heinous crime. Shaken by the brutality of it, Varthika resolves to leave no stone unturned to nab the culprits. The clip brings back the horrific memories of the crime that happened on a cold December night in Munirka. In the trailer, as Nirbhaya is being carried to a hospital, she requests the cops to not tell her father about the incident.
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.
