TLDR

Each episode, I keep telling myself this can’t be a thing, but then the headlines at the end keep proving me wrong. Whoever the research team is… Kudos to you, pal.

What it's about

At the District Court Patparganj, VD Tyagi aims to be Bar Association President, and would do so by any loopholes necessary, while Harvard graduate Ananya Shroff hopes to provide legal aid to the less fortunate under the wing of Sujata Negi, who hopes to gain her own legal chamber.

The take

With the stakes involved in plenty of cases, legal dramas tend to be more serious and dramatic. However, sometimes, ludicrous events can happen in these courts, and they have, in real life. Maamla Legal Hai may not be 100% factual, but the way they mix and match real life legal headlines gets into unexpected, hilarious ways, poking fun at how ridiculous the Indian legal system can be. It might shy away from the serious cases, but Maamla Legal Hai smartly depicts the legal ecosystem, from the wily higher ups, to the idealistic newcomers, with unique charm and witty humor.

What stands out

The ludicrous events of Maamla Legal Hai is actually true, but it wouldn’t be believable if it weren’t for the excellent cast, especially with Ravi Hishan, who portrays the smarmy, manipulative VD Tyagi with charm and ease.
