'Guilty Minds' trailer: Two opposite-natured lawyers fight it out
Guilty Minds finally got a trailer! The first legal drama offered by Amazon Prime Video is set to premiere on April 22. The series features Shriya Pilgaonkar (Mirzapur) and Varun Mitra (Jalebi, Tejas) in the lead roles. Guilty Minds has been created and directed by Shefali Bhushan, who has made films like Jugni and Tambur. It is co-directed by writer-cinematographer Jayant Digambar Somalkar.
Why does this story matter?
- Other countries have cult-classic legal dramas that focus on the intricacies of courtroom proceedings and presenting viewers with knowledge about legal terms (Suits, While You Were Sleeping, Rumpole Of the Bailey).
- However, India has had very few such shows like Your Honor (2020), Criminal Justice (2019), and Illegal (2020).
- So, overall, the prospect of getting a show focused on various lawsuits is interesting.
What does the trailer show?
The 1:57-minute-long trailer begins with lawyers Kashaf Quaze (Pilgaonkar) and Deepak Rana (Mitra) inside a courtroom. They are fighting a case of copyright infringement in a district court. From their arguments, we get the impression that Quaze is all for ethics and virtues, but Rana is more money-driven, irrespective of whether the cash comes from all the wrong means and ways.
