Adaalat (English: Court) is an Indian television courtroom drama anthology television series about a defense attorney, K.D. Pathak, portrayed by Ronit Roy. The first season for the show premiered on Sony on 20 November 2010 and ran for five years, ending on 11 July 2015. The series is produced by Contiloe Entertainment and stars Ronit Roy in the eponymous role. The show aired 431 episodes in its first season, becoming one of the favorite TV shows amongst the viewers.
Adaalat returned for a second season on Sony on 4 June 2016. Ronit Roy reprised his role as K.D. Pathak. Recurrences of other previously known characters are rumored.
Adalat is a show revolving around KD Pathak (Ronit Roy), a suave, sophisticated, witty and yet unconventional lawyer. He can get his clients out of the tightest of situations. His success rate of acquittals is 100 percent. But most importantly KD stands not for his client, but for Justice. KD has an amazing eye for detail and an insatiable thirst for knowledge. He always seems to know enough about every profession, and what he doesn't know he covers up/makes up with his smartness. He is a quick thinker. Interestingly, what his initials K. D. stand for, has not been revealed yet, though multiple references have come up across episodes, thereby raising the curiosity factor KD steps into a case when all is doomed for the accused. All the doors are shut. When the prosecution has prepared a water tight open and shut case where even a blind man can tell that the accused is guilty then KD somehow performs a miracle. No one can see the case from the angle KD does. He digs fervently for loopholes in the prosecution's case much to their frustration and thinking on his feet, he manages to turn the entire case around. Often through histrionics, magical gimmicks (since he has recently started learning magic and uses a parallel between magic and justice that often what we see is not all there is something beyond it), performances, which the Judge does not approve of ! And nor does his ex-love Maya (The Prosecutor who is often at the receiving end!) - But that is KD. Unstoppable, incorrigible and completely enthralling and entertaining. It is a treat to watch him perform in court week after week, tearing the toughest of cases to shreds and helping convict an evil scheming villain, and setting a poor hapless innocent victim free!
