Yes, I rememer watching Krishna Arjun...it wasn't exactly a 'detective series' per se
CATS was the best...in fact, I have the title track of CATS. Yeah, sadly Kuljeet Randhawa and Nafisa Joseph commited suicide....
There were other reasonable detective shows on Indian TV too...starting from Byomkesh Bakshi to Avinash IPS, Raja aur Rancho etc...Star One was wonderfully in dishing out thrillers. Speical Squad, Guns and Roses, Siddhanth....and now look at it.
Krishna Arjun had a comic touch to it and they had good chemistry.
Never heard of byomkesh bakshi but dad used to watch Avinash and Siddhanth. Guns and Roses never interested me. I absolutely loved C.A.T.S though!
There used to be a show on Zee TV called Lipstick..man that show gave me nightmares. It wasn't a detective series but it was scary as hell! It wasn't a typical saas bahu serial and it had Gauhar Khan's sister in it. (the one with the big scary eyes) and she when she found out the main actress (shweta salve) was pregnant she went and used black magic on her and using a voodoo doll she killed her child.
I wonder if it was just me that used to watch this show? It had a 11pm slot though so maybe not everyone watched it.
Yeah, that's true....Bymokesh Bakshi was a DD show, back in the early 90's. I remember very little of Avinash, but I watched Siddhanth recently, and found it awesome! Aww, come on, Guns and Roses was pretty good, had a romantic touch to it too! Another show I liked was DON. Yep, CATS was awesome, I think it used to come on Sony.
Hmmm, Lipstick, never heard of it, but it sounds somewhat like Kahin Kisi Roz...speaking fof horror shows, sorry for the late reply, because I was watching an episode from Aahat Season 2.
Indian TV has changed for the worst. There are no more interesting shows on.
Previously, there was Anhonee, X Zone, Zee Horror Show, Aahat etc...But the horror show that impacted me the most was a show called Achanak 37 Saal Baad. Boy, what a scary show, if ever there was one....too bad they don't have online videos on
And it's title track was scarier than X Zone's...
Ahh that brings back a lot of memories!
We never got DD here in the UK until a year or so ago and then they got rid of the channel again for some reason
I never watched Kahi Kisi Roz but the episodes that I did watch were of characters turning in to a snake or something? Indian TV actually used to be really good! Did you watch Koshish with Varun Badola and Sandhya Mridul? She ends up being deceived and betrayed by her in-laws in to marrying a guy who has the brain of a little child. Varun Badola's acting was SO good!
I've seen that show Bidaai and the guy who plays the same role Varun Badola did 10 years was no where near as good! I think while watching Zee Horrow Show I wasn't scared as such, but just totally grossed out by the stuff they used to show. I vaguely remember achanak 37 saal baad..I feel so old thinking about all these shows. It feels like they were aired a very long time ago.
