Review of the movie Trial By Fire

Trial By Fire: Based on a true story waiting to be told for more than two decades is finally here in the form of a Netflix series directed by Prashant Nair and Randeep Jha.
The Sobering Trial by Fire is a watchable and eye-opening account of a disaster that Delhi is unlikely ever to forget.

The seven-episode series captures, subtly and piercingly, the trauma of a challenging and tenacious Delhi couple who lost their two children in the Uphaar cinema fire on June 13, 1997, and then with the support of lawyers and the relatives of the others who died that fateful afternoon, fought tooth and nail to bring those responsible for the tragedy to book.


The show trains the spotlight on the protracted and arduous war that Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy have waged to ensure that the real estate tycoons who own the cinema hall are punished for their cavalier disregard for safety norms.

The tragedy occurred 26 years ago and subsequent court proceedings have been in the news off and on.
Trials by Fire were as much of the personal pain suffered by individuals – none more so than an old man who lost all seven members of his family in the fire -mas o0n the very public setbacks that confronted Krishnamoorthy as they went about mobilizing support for their legitimate legal battle against the culprit.


The stance of the story that focuses on the agony of bereaved parents is understood accorded great importance. But it is intertwined imperceptibly with the complicated legal processes that the litigants have had to understand and get on top of as they have wended their way through the system on behalf of the victims of the Uphaar Cinema fire.
