Watched Poison in the Nail first. I saved the best for the last Anyways, coming to the episode, it was from the Anushka era, when cases were still pretty interesting. Nice to see the smooth transition of the crime, from a murder to something more sensitive. In fact, this is the first time that CID every handled sensitive material. I liked how ACP Sir also looked for clues along with the team, and you know, even though he is superior to all, he is still doing work along with them. Maintains that unity and doesn't make viewers conscious of this disparity in rank. One negative thing is that this is the time when multiple murders started on CID. But of course, the reason was clear, unlike nowadays. Part 2 started very mysteriously, engaging the audience completely. None of the team members taunted the forensics unlike today, which created a sense of unity. Another blunder was the girl remember Raj's bike number by heart Lastly, and most importantly, lots and lots of duo! I love this case because of overdose of duo! The last scene was fabulous, with the case giving a real, social message! I love episodes like this! All in all, a very good case!
Now let's get to the real stuff Lights, camera, action right from the first scene! The storywriters really knew how to get the audience hooked to the show. The showing of the occurrences in Abhijit Sir's dream created that hook. Then I liked how ACP and Daya Sir narrated the happenings to Jayant, it was a very different kind of flashback. Now, one thing I didn't like is how they depicted responsible CID officers that way, not just Abhijit Sir, but Daya Sir. Pretending to drink and smoke, and actually drinking and smoking are 2 different things, and they were doing the latter. Well, maybe they weren't drinking, but nonetheless they were smoking. But I do understand the storywriter's argument for making things more realistic. But still, it is Abhijit and Daya Sir's out there. Anyways, back then no one had that affection for them, but now it just hurts watching them do that. The following scenes were very pitiful to watch I'll come back to this later. Back in the day, the locations were so realistic! A 'coal miner' wouldn't have a huge bungalow like nowadays, just a modest one-room apartment. The episode by itself was quite fast-paced and full of action, kept the adrenalin rushing!
Coming to the whole Senior Inspector Abhijit, I cannot begin to describe the work Aditya Srivastava ji has done! Really, you see all these six-packed actors doing rona-dhona and you just shake your head! Aditya Srivastava brought acting to an entirely new level! The genuinity of the expressions, the frustration, the quick minded thinking, the swiftness, the aggression were out of this world! Mindblowing, hats off! The way he tricks that Raghu into telling the location of bomb is ingenious! Then, the way he risks his life in keeping the bomb from exploding is really…IDK how to describe it…heroic is too little of a word. I think after Abhijit Sir, ACP Sir really shined too, we see the calm, and lead-by-example ACP. His involvement is really really invigorating, and he is not just standing there shaking his fingers saying 'Kuch toh gadbad hain'…very very enjoyable episode! Top class, easily one of the best episodes of CID, for more reasons than 1!
I think this pretty much was the highlight of the episode(courtesy of Debashree di):
"I am proud of you my boy!"
A big to Visrom Di for making my evening so exciting!
