Youth entertainment channel, Channel V, is all set to launch the fourth season of its teen crime show “Gumrah - End of Innocence". The one-hour show will showcase 13 episodes one every Sunday, starting 31st August 2014 at 1 pm.
In its fourth season, the show continues to endeavour to comprehend the psyche of teenagers and understand the stress and pressures of modern life on them. Each episode tells of a shocking tale of heinous crimes committed across the country by the innocent driven to a moment of insanity.
Season 4 will be hosted by Abhay Deol, who in turn will be accompanied by a celebrity in each episode. With a huge fan-following, the young actor has been in a number of roles that often have young people associate with, making him an apt choice for Gumrah. Every hour-long episode in the new season will shine the spotlight on a celebrity who will talk of a teen crime story that they have experienced or witnessed in the course of their lives.
First launched in March of 2012, the show has emerged as a one of kind crime series on prime time television, as it is a first ever attempt at showcasing crime committed by the most unassuming section of society - teens. Telling the story behind the unprecedented rise in juvenile delinquency, the television show uncovers the plight of innocent young adults who turn criminals due to circumstances.
Though television serials showcasing prevalent evils in society are not uncommon, Gumrah through its multiple seasons has attempted to give a new outlook to how crime is perceived by viewers.
Commenting on the new season of the show, Ajit Thakur - EVP and Business Head for Channel V said, "The show is about the youth, their tryst with crime and the circumstances which led to the incident, rather than sensationalizing the crime or the criminal himself. Over the years, the show has gained popularity with its exceptional content and execution and we are upping the ante this time around, hoping to really get the message across.”
Abhay Deol, Host - Gumrah Season 4 said, “I’ve been a huge fan of the show and am excited to be a part of the greater message. Gumrah focuses on the thought that nobody is born a criminal but instead circumstances and certain unforeseen incidents take you down a bad path. The idea is to not only educate parents, families but also the youth.”
Gumrah season 4 is produced by Balaji Telefilms.
