Illegal is a Voot Select Original series that released on 12th May 2020. The show was earlier called as Law and Honor before being changed to Illegal. Voot Select is a recent launch into the world of OTT platforms. It has gained vast popularity with its shows such as Asur, The Raikar Case and Marzi. With Illegal it is sure to improve its base and popularity. The question that arises is whether there will be a season 2 of Illegal and when will it release.
Illegal Season 2 Trailer
The trailer clearly indicated that the show will showcase the struggle of the protagonist as she battles for justice all while being under the scanner. Niharika (Neha Sharma) has been termed as ‘the mad lawyer’. This name stuck by her owing to her unique tactics used to win an earlier case of hers.
Notwithstanding her objections, she handles the case to protect a rapist as it is deemed capable of winning the case in the media as well as law courts. This is a journey of a legal ride wherein significant questions arise on severe topics such as capital punishment and moreover the so called hypothetical unprejudiced law that leans towards the side of the privileged.
The web series depicts two sides of the same coin showing both the lawmakers as well as the law. On one side, there are honest lawyers who are ready to put their lives at stake in their battle for justice and reinstate belief in humanity. And on the other side, there are lawyers who are nothing more than mercenaries, who are appointed to just win the case even if it means to disobey the law and order.
The trailer for Illegal was released on May 4th 2020. It looked intense and was expected to be one of the best Indian web series.
Until the announcement for Illegal season 2, watch the trailer of Illegal season 1 here:

Illegal Season 1 Review
The force behind Illegal is Kubbra Sait. She has never failed to amaze the audience with her portrayal of characters and this time around it is no different. She has portrayed her character with strength, commitment and realism which is clearly reflected onscreen.
Other than Sait, Piyush Mishra’s smart yet subtle performance in the series shines as the antagonist with less inclination towards good and bad. Neha Sharma also makes a lasting impression with her performance of a good-hearted lawyer who does not tolerate injustice.
Illegal on Voot Select has a number of thrilling plot twists which though are predictable at times, can be entertaining for a binge-watch. Illegal is at best watchable as various shows and films on similar concepts have become a regular occurrence. The rather dragged love triangle story arc in the series breaks Illegal’s crisp pacing and hurts the overall viewer experience. A few standout performances of Piyush Mishra and Kubbra Sait keep Illegal afloat.
