'Vish Dhamija has set the sky as the limit’ New Indian Express
A motiveless murder. A corrupt politician. A judge on trial.
Five years ago, when Akash Hingorani won a trial in court for his friends Priti and Vansh Diwan, he lost his heart to the presiding judge, Shilpa Singh.

Arrested in situ – at the scene of the crime – with a knife in her hand, she has been charged with first-degree murder.

The murder charge against Shilpa could easily derail his trial.
Two of India’s best defence lawyers, Akash and Vansh jointly take up the case, but they soon realize they are pitted against one of the sharpest prosecuting brains in the country, Ravi Nanda, who is always a step ahead of them both, and pulls the carpet from under their firm feet. Twice.
