Directed by Shefali Bhushan and Jayant Digambar, the Amazon Prime Video series will premiere on April 22nd
Amazon Prime Video just launched the trailer of its first Indian legal drama Guilty Minds. The web series stars Shriya Pilgaonkar and Varun Mitra in the roles as Kashaf Quaze and Deepak Rana, respectively. The characters have been friends since law school but often find themselves taking on each other at the courtroom. The 10-episode series will begin streaming on the OTT platform from April 22.
The trailer begins with Kashaf Quaze and Deepak Rana, fighting a copyright infringement case in a district court. From their arguments, it is clear that Kashaf is all for ethics, and all that Deepak wants is to earn money, even if that means being on the wrong side of the law.
The official synopsis of the show reads, “The protagonists, friends from law college and almost but never quite lovers, Kashaf Quaze and Deepak Rana usually find themselves on opposite sides of the law. Idealistic Kashaf is into public interest litigation while Deepak, a ruthlessly ambitious rising star, is a partner at a top law firm that represents big corporations. Deepak’s new junior Shubhangi Khanna, the heiress to the firm, is attracted to him, adding fuel to the fire. Shubhangi’s insecure and competitive cousin, Shubhrat Khanna, wants Deepak out of the firm.”
Talking about Guilty Minds, creator and director Shefali Bhushan said, “Guilty Minds for me is more than just a series based on two prolific lawyers who fight for justice and their clients. It is a representation of all that I’ve learned about the law through my family. Growing up, law was a constant topic of discussion at the dinner table at my house and I have always been intrigued by it. So, I wanted to present a realistic take on the legal system and Guilty Minds does that through the varied cases it explores.”
Co-directed by Jayant Digambar Somalkar, and produced by Karan Grover, Antara Banerjee, and Naved Farooqui, Guilty Minds will start streaming from April 22nd, on Amazon Prime Video.
