We’re thrilled to have developed Delhi Crime Story with Golden Karavan and Ivanhoe Pictures. Based on the 2012 rape case in Delhi that shocked the world, the series centres on the heroic actions of the Delhi police. With the eyes of the world upon it, the investigation is led by one passionate female officer who was driven to find the perpetrators by the crime’s extreme brutality.

We want­ed to illus­trate and explore a crime that is so incom­pre­hen­si­ble to most peo­ple that you don’t know where to start to think about it. And while you don’t want to think about it, it’s a top­ic that needs to be addressed. This led us to the pro­duc­tion of a mul­ti­ple part tele­vi­sion series, because there is so much to explore and it can be done in the aus­pices of a police thriller pro­ce­dur­al that should keep audi­ences gripped. I’m try­ing to get through this, like all of us. And I feel that, through the sto­ry of these police offi­cers who deal with gang rape every sin­gle day of their lives, our series can pro­vide a cathar­sis and learn­ing, as well as an explo­ration and under­stand­ing of law and order in a devel­op­ing world.

Why Del­hi Crimes Sec­ond Sea­son Should Be Your Next Net­flix Binge

When it debuted in the spring of 2019, Del­hi Crime made me love Net­flix all over again…dazzled by this grit­ty, well-observed pro­ce­dur­al, which drama­tised the after­math of a noto­ri­ous 2012 gang rape in New Delhi…moody, anx­ious real­ism: Cre­ator Richie Mehta and direc­tor Tanuj Chopra depict Del­hi as a packed, edgy metrop­o­lis tee­ter­ing on the brink of disorder…doesn’t feel lurid or exploita­tive…Del­hi Crime is fast-paced, well shot, and sus­pense­ful as hell…the char­ac­ters and details keep you invested…It’s one of the best shows on the plat­form and deserves a wide audience…”

A grit­ty and immer­sive police pro­ce­dur­al that views crime from a wider lens

There’s so much more to Del­hi Crime than a bunch of police offi­cers solv­ing heinous crimes. The series is an out­stand­ing see­saw of emo­tions; a nuanced por­tray­al of conflict…Bigotry and police bru­tal­i­ty in the form of caste and class dis­crim­i­na­tion are open­ly con­demned. The show doesn’t sole­ly address the sen­sa­tion­al crimes inspired by true events but also stud­ies the intri­ca­cies of human behav­iour. Domes­tic bat­tles aren’t swept under the carpet…Brand DC is not pop­corn enter­tain­ment. It’s the real deal.”
