Crime Patrol or Savdhan India: What will you watch?

Hindi television channels have very few crime based shows. The ones that exist are either too mediocre or over-the-top. But among all the run of the mill programme, Sony TV’s Crime Patrol stands out for its content, execution and narration

Last week, Life Ok launched its new show Savdhan India @11 Crime Alert. The crime diary vouches to focus on real life based felonies. The first episode showcased the story of two sisters who kill their parents to attain freedom. Another episode narrated the ordeal of a young girl who was gangraped by truck drivers. Both cases were shot well and focussed on the minute details of the case, which made for an interesting watch. However, Sony’s Crime Patrol has been doing this since 2003. Previously, Channel V also came up with a similar show titled Gumrah, but the programme focussed on juvenile offences.

After viewing Savdhan India, we noticed that many of the scenarios are sensationalised and tend to be a bit over-the-top. While gore is now an essential part of crime shows, it is also important that the concepts for theses shows are created keeping in mind the audiences. However, it does not directly compete with Crime Patrol since both the shows are aired on different days. Wethinks Savdhan India tapped into the crime genre after monitoring TRP of the Sony shows. Last week Anup Soni’s Crime Patrol received a TRP of 3.6 while CID and Ronit Roy’s Adaalat, which also run on Sony, have 3.3 and 1.96 TRP respectively.

Savdhan India narrated by Gaurav Chopra and Sushant Singh is high on the drama quotient. Barring a few glitches here and there, the show may be able to garner attention, considering there’s a dearth of crime based shows in India. And since Savdhan India is being telecast Monday to Friday, it may just work in its favour. But whether the show manages to draw in the audience that regularly follows Crime Patrol remains to be seen.
