Script and Screenplay
While the story of Your Honour is not path-breaking, it is the screenplay and the buildup that hooks viewers. There is an episode ender hook that keeps the viewer from leaving the screen. While the initial few episodes focus on character introductions, the story twists are kept alive throughout. The dynamics of one powerful man’s will become the sad destiny of many others is portrayed rather well. The series had scope for some powerful dialogues, but that was not the area that seems to have been focused on.
There is something about Jimmy Sheirgill and parent sequences. Strangely, in Rangbaaz Phirse as well as Your Honour, barring his portrayal of a parent, he is convincing in his avtar. Jimmy is swift on his feet and thinks ahead many moves when puppeteering so many characters in the series. There is no dilemma in his head on whether he will side with his son or the Law, except the first episode. He is shown to understand the danger in exposing the culpability of his son, and thereafter, does every single thing possible to save him. He is not intending to be cruel but becomes just that without remorse.
Mita Vashisht is exceptionally good in her portrayal of Kiran Sekhon. She has managed to make a strong mark with her measured dialogue delivery and nuanced portrayal of a senior and competent Lady Police Police Officer in the misogynist world of Punjab Law of Land. More than that, her motherly instincts and righteousness of character, when hurt, she quickly stumbles on her stoic collect. She is shown to be exceptionally weak and exceptionally strong both in the same series.
The sequences between Parul Gulati and Jimmy Sheirgill are somewhat elusive. The viewer does not fully understand the depth of their relationship as a mentor and mentee. Paril’s Bhaiyya dialect is carefully delivered and well balanced. Her remorse and exploitation of her emotional weaknesses by Jimmy’s character are also one of the highlights of this series.
Varun Badola is the kind of actor who could have carried a series on his shoulder. Nonetheless, even in a largely supportive role, he marks his OTT debut. Kashi is a loyal friend and his allegience to his kin and community is commendable. Ironically, he pays the price for loyalty to a disloyal friend. Badola plays this dilemna of losing his community and family support for Justice Bishan very well.
E Niwas , of Shool fame, does keep the narrative tight and keeps the twists coming to engage the viewer. He has undoubtedly at his disposal some of the finest actors in the Industry today and he utilized his collective acting prowess wisely. A little slick Editing could have shortened the series a bit. Indian Series are typically shorter both in terms of episode as well as series duration.
