Isn't this figure alarming? Have you ever reflected on what was the criminal thinking before getting his mind out of control?

We believe the effect is nothing but the extension of a cause. What if you could get inside the mind of a criminal and nail down the reason that led him to the gruesome crime! With this thought, Colors launches an investigative series Shaitaan – A criminal mind, a show produced by Miditech that breaks through the psyche of the criminal and understand the emotional undercurrents that often lie hidden behind an act of criminality. Popular TV actor Sharad Kelkar takes on the role of an anchor, the analyst - who will take the audiences through the complex crime and the monster mind behind the transgression. The show is set to go on air this December 1, every Saturday and Sunday at 10.00 p.m. only on Colors.

Shaitaan - A Criminal Mind presents a convincing fusion of documentary and drama of REAL LIFE cases that are COLD, CALCULATED and PRE-MEDITATED. The episodic series aim to understand the mindset, circumstances and the reasons which lead to the crime taking the psychologist route along with dramatization to give a view of the mind-set of the criminal. The show will creates a sense of anxiety about what went wrong and how it could have been averted. It involves and makes viewers think. From serial killers, to child murderers the show is going to analyze cases across different types of crimes and profile the criminals according to their mindset.

Talking about the show Shaitaan – A Criminal Mind and his role as an anchor, Sharad Kelkar said, "With Shaitaan, my role goes beyond just anchoring and that of analysing the mind-set of the criminal and dissecting the complex journey of the crime. Our attempt is to present the other side, however cruel and heartless a criminal may be... the crime always germs from an emotional undercurrent that is hidden behind the act. It's a big responsibility that rests on my shoulder but I have accepted it as a challenge and would definitely want to make a difference in the lives of my audiences by presenting these cases that will force them to re-think.

Providing dramatic recreations of actual events through the facts, documents and interviews from people connected to the happening, Shaitaan – A Criminal Mind promises to take the audiences as close to the crime as one can get.
