The other one wrote, “Watched the first episode of illegal yesterday on @MTVIndia really enjoyed this show and characterization of each and everyone was so perfect ✌✌✌ . As usual, @Officialneha rocked it. Till date her best performance. People love Neha Sharma’s performance as she stepped out of her starry image as a no-nonsense lawyer and the plot is so addictive that it binds the viewers till end. The critics did not find the plot as engaging as Badla and Pink and call the Sahir Raza direction immature but the content is good for the OTT platforms according to the viewers. According to the fans, it’s refreshing to watch Neha Sharma in such a role.
Voot has been shooting its viewers with a similar genre, murder mysteries like Asur and The Raiker Case and now Illegal, the streaming platform has made the hat-trick of successful shows.
