Netflix originals creates buzz with its recreation of a historical courtroom drama, starring none other than Irrfan Khan.
A four-part Netflix miniseries 'Tokyo Trial', narrates the story of a forgotten Indian judge, Judge Radhabinod Pal, who is deeply respected by Japanese people because of his stance during the infamous war crime trials that took place in Japan after World War II (called the Tokyo Trials).
The Tokyo trials began on May 3, 1946, and eleven judges from all over the world were called to Tokyo where they spent two-and-a-half years and engaged in a landmark trial that determined the outcome of over 28 Pacific war criminals as the entire world’s fate hung in the delicate balance and aftermath. This is the story of Justice’s struggle to undertake the unprecedented task of ‘trying war as a crime’.
Irrfan who plays the role of a Bengali judge shot the show earlier in 2016 and has been earning rave reviews for his master act in this period drama by the international press.
Over the years, Irrfan Khan has established himself as an international star and his work as an actor has made him earn worldwide appreciation.
