ZEE5 and Alt Balaji’s The Verdict – State Vs Nanavati released on 30th September. And a week later the reviews and reactions keep pouring in. The strong cast includes Manav Kaul, Elli AvrRam, Kubbra Sait, Sumeet Vyas, Saurabh Shukla and Makarand Deshpande only to name a few. Watch some of the celebrity reactions to the show here.
Latestly.com described the show as ‘a captivating courtroom drama, aided and abetted by its production values and engaging performances from its cast.’ It singled out 2 actors for their roles saying, ‘Sumeet Vyas and Makrand Deshpande are the charm of the show and they just raised the bar every time they are on screen. They also provide some of the best humour in the series.’ The Telegraph also seconded this opinion saying Sumeet Vyas and Makrand Deshpande were ‘a delight to watch’.
If you’re confused that ‘The Verdict’ and ‘Rustom‘ are too similar the Telegraph said that ‘Rustom, was loosely based on this case, but the upcoming show presents the facts and keeps the names intact.’ Spotboye elaborated on this point saying ‘You’ve seen versions of this story before, but never as raw and unfiltered as this.’
Another aspect of the show much appreciated was the productions value. Spotboye commented on this saying ‘you are taken back into the world of 50s Bombay, with meticulously designed sets and the creation of a world that is now long gone.’ Even Mid-day who didn’t thinks much about the show said ‘The upside is that the makers have beautifully recreated Bombay of the late ’50s, complete with vintage cars, bouffant hairstyles and dresses’.
In other celebrity reactions of the show, Akshay Oberoi who was seen in movies like Kalakaandi and Fitoor, had this to say about the show.
