Ali Raza Namdar in Sony TV's Crime Patrol


Summary: Veteran and talented actor Ali Raza Namdar who is seen playing Kumud's father in Saraswatichandra (Sphere Origins) is also taking up episodic projects in other shows. Talking about the episode, Ali says, "It is a story of a girl, played by Heena Parmar who has been kept as a captive by her in-laws for a long time. The father's journey to fight for his daughter and bring her justice will be the plot. It's saddening to see women facing so much pain and anguish after marriage." With crimes on women rising, does he feel that such shows can educate the people? "It definitely helps, but then the overall attitude of the society needs to change. The first episode that I did for Crime Patrol had me playing a father to a girl drowned in drugs; after the show was aired, I met a man who thanked me for the episode and said he showed his children the episode and how drugs can harm their life." Finally speaking on him being part of so many episodics, the actor says, "I have a special bond with Crime Patrolsince I have been part of their quite a number of episodes. Their working style is quite different and it's surely a break to act realistically rather the everyday melodramas for daily shows all the time. And I think they like my work, so they keep calling me (laughs)." This particular episode will be aired today and tomorrow (30 and 31 August 2013).

Crime shows making the society a better place?
When Crime Patrol planned an episode on Delhi gangrape, debates were raised on whether it should be aired or not. We wonder if the reality-based crime shows on TV are building a better society or they are instiling fear in vulnerable minds. 

Starting with Crime Patrol (Sony TV) in early 
2000s, Indian TV now has a number of crime-based shows and some of these like Savdhaan India "India Fights Back have maintained a decent TRP. Should we have censorship on the kind of detailed-criminal incidents being shown in our faces, uncensored in our drawing rooms? Or should we accept it and take lessons from the warning these shows gives us? 

With the details and precision of these crime shows, viewers get a peek into criminal minds. This can also be used in staying alert to impending criminal incidents in real life, more so, because they are picked from real-life incidents. 

Sushant Singh, who anchors Savdhhaan India argues, "I took up the show (Savdhaan India) as any work and my only condition was that I can't do something like India's Most Wanted kind of a thing where there is lot of shouting and sensationalisation. 

"Further elaborating on the kind of impact his show has on the society, Sushant says, "People have come up to me and said we've learnt a lot from the show. Our aim is to spread awareness. We always show that the criminal is caught and people win when they fight back." 

Anchor of Crime Patrol " Dastak, Anoop Soni says, "On a larger level, we can't say for sure that the shows have helped but people do get help from the shows, especially Crime Patrol. The shows certainly make people aware of life around us as well as our rights. We're trying to promote justice for all." 



Further elaborating on the purpose of his show, Soni says, "We do not do only crime, with this year's season, we have graduated to promoting better society and practices. So, we basically aim at guiding people to a better society, posing questions that need to be asked." 

However, some people believe exposing vulnerable minds to such details of criminal incidents can cause harm to the psyche and instil fear in them. Sushant reacts animatedly to such views, "Gita, Quran and Bible have been there for centuries. Have all of us become saints after reading the good books? No. So, the argument that crime shows on TV will prove to be fodder for the criminal mind is not justifiable." 

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, however, feels censorship should be more on TV, than cinema since it is free viewership for the adults and kids in a family alike. Bhatt says, "When the television is un-reigned and has no kind of restrictions, why is cinema being leashed? Since television comes into our homes, TV content should be sanitised and made more palatable. Cinema should be unleashed as it is categorised under Adult and Universal sections." 

Talking about the vulnerability of kids to such shows, Sushant says, "We began airing the show at 11pm. Even at that time, people were making their kids watch the show as it makes them more cautious and alert. I even ask my own daughter who is ten years old to watch the show because it will equip her in being safer." 



To get a better understanding of the impact of reality-based crime shows on TV, we approached Sandy Dias Andrade, Psychologist & Director, Just Being. Andrade says, "Such shows basically breathe fear in people, especially in vulnerable minds like kids and youngsters.  A long exposure to crime instils fear of an unsafe society. As for the crime-prone minds, they would anyways pick up stuff to suit their interest. But a repeated exposure to crime is certainly not healthy, especially for kids." 

The shows, however, should not be condemned downright, she adds, "I think these shows can be helpful in making people cautious but the focus on crime could make people insecure. Shows that focus on cases where victims fight back and justice wins, can be boost the morale of the people." 

Sandy says kids watching these shows should be monitored. "The whole responsibility does not lie on the shoulders of media channels alone. It may not harm adults watching the shows for information but over-exposure is not advisable," she adds. 

What do you think? Do these shows help in building a secure and aware society or do they instil fear in vulnerable minds? Share your views in the comment box below.

"I would have loved to host The Bachelorette India..."

Says actor - anchor Anup Soni who is a popular host and wants to explore more genres.

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 | 6:39:02 PM IST (+05:30 GMT)   |  Copyright: india-forums.com/tellybuzz  |  Comments 0 Comments  |  43 Views

It has been more than two years thatAnup Soni has been associated with the popular show Crime Patrol on Sony TV. He is also seen in the family drama Balika Vadhu onColors. However, he is eager to do more says Anup, "Many people think that with these two shows my hands are full but the fact is that I still have time to do more shows. I would like to tell them that I am not all that busy and would want to do more work cause these two shows don't take that much of my time."

It was for this particular reason that Anup says he lost out on the opportunity of hosting 'The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon ki Mallika' which is all about the controversial actress Mallika Sherawat finding a groom for herself on national television. Talking about the same Anup says, "I got to know that the people associated with The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon ki Mallika' were looking at me as a probable host for the show but didn't come forward to ask me as they thought I would be too busy. They recently approached me to do a special episode which didn't materialize but I would have loved to host this show."

Everyone including the audience and his fans too seem to think of Anup having a serious image as a host of Crime Patrol. Does it act as a deterrent too? And how does Anup himself try to come out of that image? "The profile should match my personality. The Bachelorette India - Mere Khayalon ki Mallika' is a show about human nature and relationships and I would have enjoyed doing it. I would have done it in my style and added something from my side to the show."

Does this slotting bother him? "No, not exactly. You can't deny that every actor is slotted while casting, depending on the personality or the kind of roles that he has done in the past. For the very same reason I wanted to try out something different."

For the future, Anup has no specific plans, "I never plan when it comes to which kind of projects I will be doing in the future. For me what is important is that the role should be important to the flow of the story whether it is for TV, films or theatre. I am in talks for couple of films but can talk about them only when things are finalized."

Anup and Juhi were also in news recently for having been approached for the dance reality show Nach Baliye Season 6 on Star Plus. Clarifying whether he will be doing the show Anup says, "Not only this year but we have been approached earlier too but I don't think we will take it up. Me and Juhi both are keen on things like singing or dancing but to do a show like this is too much of a pressure and we are not mentally prepared to take up that kind of pressure at this stage. There are intense rehearsals and practice that goes into a show like this which will be too taxing for us. Also our son is too small for us to give so much time outside. Let's see maybe we will do a guest appearance or some such thing but I don't see us participating, at least not this year."

Dehli gang-rape case on Sony TV's Crime Patrol this weekend


Summary: The much-in-debate Delhi gang rape case is the next burning social issue that will be dealt with in Sony Entertainment Television's Crime Patrol (Optimystix Productions). The story will be aired as a two-episode chronicle wherein for Suhasi, the 23 years old girl the ghastly night of 16 December 2012 tarnished her entire existence. When Suhasi along with her boy friend Nilesh boarded a bus, they never knew that the life would come to a stand-still with few perverts and drunkards waiting to get their prey. The men who instigated the couple initially got into a fight with Nilesh and wounded him so much that he could not move. Then they set their evil eyes on Suhasi, and when the brave girl resisted, they came back at her with vengeance and raped her one by one, only to later beat her with shoves and rods. Later, the men threw Suhasi and Nilesh out of the bus. Suhasi whose health deteriorated in the hospital with every passing minute provided details of the 6 guys, and after all the struggle the police succeeded in nabbing the criminals. The condition of Suhasi set the people of the nation on a big hue and cry to protect the innocent from such people's menacing eyes. As the Government and citizens woke up to fight for the cause, Suhasi breathed her last after being airlifted to Singapore. She had suffered a cardiac arrest before she lost her brave battle. This movement that has aroused the nation to fight against such ruthless acts of youngsters has been going on... And we do hope we succeed in erasing such brutality from the face of the earth. Catch this soul-touching twin episodes on Sony TV's Crime Patrol on 21st and 22nd September.

In our country people think they can do anything and get away with it easily: Anup Soni


The verdict is out for the criminals involved in the Delhi rape case. And at this juncture, Sony Entertainment Television as we know finally airs the special episode on the Delhi gang rape case in Crime Patrol (Optimystix Production).

Here, we bring you the views of the show's presenter Anup Soni, who appreciates the verdict but has an ambiguous opinion on the death sentence.

"I have two opinions on that. I wouldn't advocate death sentence completely but it depends on the type of crime that has been committed. What these men did was exceptionally brutal. The girl and her friend also sought their mercy but they had turned devils. So, I am okay with this judgment. In our country people think that they can do anything and get away with it easily. So in order to instil fear in the minds of criminals we needed to prove a point," says Soni.

The episode was shot in January (2013) but was put on hold after initial protests. "We have always followed facts and don't twist the incidents and just want to raise a few questions. Even in this case, we followed what has been told and recorded by the police. We had no intention whatsoever to sensationalise the issue and get any viewership mileage. By airing the gang rape, we are simply talking about the lessons we have learnt out of it, the precautions we need to take and changes we can implement," he avers.

The actor believes that justice should be delivered in all the cases and not just the ones highlighted by media. "I have a strong opinion on acid attacks. We shot an episode on Sonali Mukherjee whose face was destroyed when sprinkled with acid. The culprits of this case are roaming free even today which is very sad," he rues.

After doing the show the 38-year-old has become a different person. He says his point of view and the way of looking at others have changed. "I have become more sensitive towards people than what I used to be three years ago. We spend endlessly on our lifestyles but start squabbling over petty issues without service providers. People would dine out at an expensive restaurant but would never pay extra money to the maid at home. It is high time that we start understanding their perspectives," he observes adding that the difference between rich and poor is one of the factors behind converting man into devil.

"There is a kind of frustration in society. In Mumbai, they say that outsiders are part of the crimes happening here. But one should realise that the man committing a crime also has a family and children. They should be treated as human beings. They need to be given what they deserve. If you understand others, life will be easier," he maintains.

Soni, who has been with Crime Patrol for a long time, doesn't hesitate in adding his inputs. He reads the entire screenplay of the episode. "Sometimes I even add certain lines that my team is happy to incorporate. I don't take part in the research process since there is a dedicated department to take care of this," he informs.

Well, with a show that contributes so much to the society, having a presenter as dedicated as Anup is always an added advantage.
