The Shuttlecock Murder is an upcoming ZEE5 Original web series, drawing inspiration from a real-life crime story. However, the digital drama shall take the fictional route and offer a dramatized account of the incident. It shall showcase a love story that didn’t have a happy ending. It’s a thriller that is not the traditional whodunnit but a thriller that sources itself from the circumstances, the complexities of relationships and the twists that the Indian judicial system keeps throwing at us.
The web series is nothing like you have already seen. The ethos, sentiments, political situation, the Indian judicial system of the late 1980s will be brought to life in this web series, but a People Vs Oj Simpson would be similar in terms of the chatter around this case. The narrative here is not just the court case or how proceedings took a shocking turn, it’s the bigger picture in question here.
Suitable for men and women of 16-60 age group, the case would ring a bell for the older generation as the seniors are likely to recollect what had happened. However, the younger audience devours crime, especially this case which then might have seemed ahead of it’s time but is relevant even today.
The story of The Shuttlecock Murder feeds on the darker side of the human mind, with the right motivation (even love) coupled with obscene power can lead to events one can’t comprehend. Stay tuned for more updates about The Shuttlecock Murder.
