    Maamla Legal Hai Series Review: Witness the other side of the law

    Last Updated

    The law and order in any country is arduous process. It takes immense patience, time and even money if one wants to get justice. In a country like India where there are millions of people seeking justice for different reasons, one can only imagine the strain on the resources.

    As a country, the modern India has come a long way but the rural and suburban India has a long way to go. The legal system in remote and smaller towns is quite wonky, much to everyone’s chagrin. One of Netflix India’s latest offerings – Maamla Legal Hai – taps into this eccentricity of the legal system in such small towns. This show features Ravi Kishan, ail Grewal, Nidhi Bisht and Anand Joshi in pivotal roles. Maamla Legal Hai was released on Netflix on March 1, 2024.

    Maamla Legal Hai Review

    Maamla Legal Hai is a story about the lawyers, their lives, and legal cases in the Patparganj District Court. We are introduced to a big bunch of attorneys who clamour for even a smallest of remuneration from any client. The attorneys set up their benches and desks outside the court and hound at any prospective client coming with a case. The competition amongst lawyers is quite high and it is evident with the shocking reality where they struggle to earn a decent income, much less get their practise started.

    This series captures the micro-politics and hierarchic segregation of power that goes on within smaller communities. A district court would invite cases of the strangest nature from the remotest of locations. Each episode of Maamla Legal Hai brings forth an eccentric case which can only be deemed as ‘strange’ and ‘highly unlikely’. But even then, it is comical to see the lawyers fight hard to get a case to their name fight for it.

    In addition to showing an eccentric case, the show also presents the harsh realities a lawyer has to face each day. Despite having a good education and a degree to their name, the lawyers have to struggle a lot to set up their practise. Politics, power and favouritism often become barriers for one to go ahead. Those who are at the bottom of the food chain struggle to go up because of lack of support and chances from their seniors.

    Amidst all joke and humour, there is also a slice of humanity in each story. We see that despite the selfish and borderline corrupt nature of certain lawyers, at the end of the day when their fellows needed their help, the lawyers came together to solve the issue.

    Will there be Season 2 of Maamla Legal Hai?

    At the time of writing this article, there has been no official news about a second season of Maamla Legal Hai. The first season did end on an open note, especially with VD Tyagi signing up to be a judge. The power control within Patparganj court would change immensely with VD Tyagi’s promotion.

    If season 2 of Maamla Legal Hai is announced, then the viewers can hope to see VD Tyagi settling into his new role as a judge. Sujata Negi got her own chamber, VD Tyagi’s interns also got promoted and Ani also found her place in the court which was hesitant to accept her initially.

    Maamla Legal Hai is a sweet attempt at showcasing the flaws and finesse of the Indian judicial system. It highlights the quirks of a district court which attracts cases from small towns and villages alike. Much of the population is not well versed with the legal system and they are often taken for a ride by those in power. Maamla Legal Hai shows how the quirkiest of cases are met with verdicts in these small town courts of India.

    JAL gives Maamla Legal Hai a sharp 8.5 stars out of 10.
