The story follows an unfortunate incident that happened in June 1997, which saw 59 victims and 100 spectators injured when a fire broke out at Uphaar cinema in South Delhi.
It is inspired by the bestselling book, ‘Trial by Fire: The Tragic Tale of the Uphaar Fire Tragedy’ by Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy. The series is produced by Endemol Shine India and House of Talkies.
Director and presenter Prashant Nair said, “Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy are inspiring examples of the resilience and fortitude it takes to put even a little needle in this country.
“What happened to them and how they were forced to fight for justice is truly terrible and unfortunately, today there are countless others in similar circumstances. We are grateful to Netflix for being a courageous partner in telling this story.”
Prashant Nair wonderfully chronicles the heartbreaking yet resilient journey of parents – Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy, who lost their two children in the fire. The limited series will depict their endless trials and tribulations in their pursuit of justice for more than 24 years while also looking at other lives touched and destroyed by the flames.
