ACTOR Kajol is all set to make her OTT debut with Disney+ Hotstar series The Trial – Pyaar, Kaanoon, Dhokha. An Indian adaptation of CBS series The Good Wife, the series features the star as lawyer Noyonika Sengupta, a housewife who has no option but to resume work, after her husband is arrested following a public scandal. Directed by Suparn S. Varma, The Trial has been produced by Banijay Asia and Ajay Devgn FFilms.
The show also features Sheeba Chaddha, Jisshu Sengupta, Alyy Khan, Kubbra Sait and Gaurav Pandey in key roles.
From what has been offered in the trailer, The Trial – Pyaar, Kaanoon, Dhokha comes across as a gritty courtroom drama that elucidate moral dilemmas that drive Noyonika to take charge of her family and her independence. She is determined about proving herself in the competitive world of law, and does everything to combat complicated relationships while seeking justice for her husband.
The Trial – Pyaar Kaanoon Dhokha has been based on original U.S. series The Good Wife, which was created by CBS Studios in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions. Executive producers who worked on the show include: Robert and Michelle King, Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Brooke Kennedy, Craig Turk, Leonard Dick, Ted Humphrey and Keith Eisner. The format rights are licensed by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
In Kajol’s words, she decided to play Noyonika because of the personal connect she felt with the character. “The complexities are what defines a character to me and the layers surrounding Noyonika are what spoke to me when this role first came over. Noyonika felt personal, I instantly felt protective about her and that reaffirmed my faith in choosing The Trial – Pyaar, Kanoon, Dhoka on Disney+ Hotstar to be my first step into the long format. Suparn Varma has built a world where vulnerability of characters meet the cruel situations posed by life. The audience will feel for and feel one with Noyonika as she makes difficult choices, because I did,” she says.
Jisshu Sengupta, who essays the role of Rajeev Sengupta, feels his collaboration with Kajol helped him bring a new shade to his character. “Suparn Varma is a brilliant filmmaker and a storyteller. He treats his characters and their world like his own. My character Rajiv is the black to Noyonika’s white and that’s what fascinated me. Collaborating with Kajol for Disney+ Hotstar’s The Trial – Pyaar, Kanoon, Dhoka on this was absolutely incredible, she brought out a whole new shade to Rajiv’s character. I think the audience will find their chemistry quite different and keep them hooked to find out where they end up in life,” he says.
The Trial – Pyaar, Kanoon, Dhoka will release on July 14, 2023.
