It is a black poster that shows dark0age. There is a chair and it is seat of justice and also there is a table on which the figure of justice that is a blindfolded woman holding a scale is laying broken. The justice hammer is seen on the head-side of the figure of justice. Name of the movie is written in both English and Hindi on the bottom. And on the top, a question is asked “who is the victim”. Here judiciary is the victim as it is unable to protect the citizens.
