Unbiased and Relevant visual Record

Well made, good presentation, good interviews and well laid out for providing the audience with a gripping tale of this horrific crime. Star World needs to be credited for delivering such a TV-series, which not only informs, but allows the viewers to connect with the various evidence, plots and characters. The show develops chronologically, emphasizes on points that stood out in particular in Court, and around which the main confusion or rather insufficient evidence revolves, dictating the fate of the people captured within the spectrum of the crime. The show concerns itself with all the investigations led by different teams of Police and CBI. It also provides no partial speech or inclusion to favor a side or to give a verdict on the case. It leaves it open to interpret by providing the FACTS of how the story of the night of Aarushi's murder transpired to how it is in the present.

Apart from showing the details of the case and how the media and society led due process of the investigation, it also highlights the irregularities with the evidence procured and presented in front of the Court, resulting in altering the state of the Talwars and how India recognized them and the case. This series can be used as a mirror, a mirror to reflect the inefficiency of the Anti-Crime units in India. A mirror for the judiciary, transpiring to mere precedents, but holding the worth for ascertaining future judgments due to insufficient evidence. Overall, the series could have been a little more in-depth, but that would require choosing sides as digging deep in this case would result in hard prejudices, unequal representation and devoid character. IT could have but focused on certain rulings and corroborated them with interviews. I understand the position of the Talwars is delicate, but they should have been questioned a little more strictly and purposefully.
