Directed by Suparn Verma and adapted from the critically-acclaimed show The Good Wife, it left many fans excited as the makers of the web series unveiled the gripping trailer of The Trial. Taking to Instagram, Kajol shared the trailer for her fans who are super excited to see a different side of hers in the trailer.
The two-minute-long trailer aptly summed up the courtroom drama with Kajol as Noyonika Sengupta, a lawyer turned housewife who is compelled to don the black robes after her husband gets embroiled in a massive scandal. The trailer showcased the tension between Kajol and Jisshu Sengupta who is supposedly essaying her husband and a judge jailed for the controversy. From the look of the trailer, the series will explore Kajol’s conflict between being a wife and a lawyer.
Also starring Sheeba Chaddha, Jisshu Sengupta, Alyy Khan, Kubbra Sait and Gaurav Pandey in pivotal roles, The Trial is touted to be a gritty courtroom drama that unravels moral dilemmas that drive Noyonika to take charge of her family and her independence. The show follows the journey of Noyonika as she embarks on a journey that makes her stand the test of time after her husband's betrayal. Driven to prove herself in the competitive world of law and navigating her way through complicated relationships, Noyonika treads through tough challenges served by her fate.
Talking about the show, Kajol had earlier told Variety, “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.”
