Sony bets on old card ‘Karamchand’; show returns on February 10

They did it with ‘Boogie Woogie’, they did it with ‘Aahat’ and now Sony Entertainment Television is doing it with one of the most popular detective shows on Indian television – ‘Karamchand’. The all-new episodes of the series begin on February 10, 2007 in the 9.00 pm block on the channel.

The series, which was last seen on television two decades ago, had given India its own carrot-munching detective Karamchand. The maker of the show, Pankuj Parasher, and the protagonist, Pankaj Kapur, have joined hands with Sony this time for the ‘Return of Karamchand’.

Speaking on the show, Albert Almeida, Business Head and EVP, SET, said, “We are really happy to bring this hugely popular brand ‘Karamchand’ back to the viewers with new stories, a new ‘Kitty’ (detective Karamchand’s sidekick-cum-secretary) but the same Pankaj Kapur in the character that made him a household name. It was the plausible story line told with humour that grabbed the attention of the millions of viewers. It is like bringing back an epic series after years.”

Does he believe that the show would be able to connect with the new generation? Almeida replied, “I think it would. Karamchand relies on his unique logic to solve cases rather than hi-tech gadgets or forensics. We are sure this popular series will bring back nostalgic memories to viewers and also introduce the spunky detective and his quirky ways to a whole new generation.”
