The show is in reality a platform for real people to resolve real life disputes.

Elucidating the concept of the show, Siddhartha Basu, Producer, Synergy Adlabs, said, “This is a show which promises fascinating insights into human behaviour and values, and should offer vital education on the application of rights and laws to resolve common disputes with equity, in a way that makes for compelling TV.”

    I was waiting for when there would be an Indian version of Judge Judy... we'll see if it lives up to the original! But glad they are doing something different from the saas-bahus and dancing/singing reality shows!

    So basically, India's version of Judge Judy. Could be interesting.
