Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found.

I could end up getting this error suddenly while I was working in Ubuntu 16.04 OS
Machine got hanged when I force restart the machine, it shows me this error as shown in Image – 1

It didn’t allow me to log in to that recovery mode also, so finally I have tried to log in through
