CID is a famed detective serial broadcasted in sony channel of Indian television. Famed it is, albeit the cause remains unequivocal. Irony is that whether the element of detection or the comedy is that what it is noted for, across the country. Every character starring in it doesn’t reflect, not even a smidgen of the braininess coruscated by the exemplary Sherlock Holmes.
Here are the five ‘whys’ to depreciate the detective-substance of CID
When the boss, ACP Pradyuman himself is a jocular figure
Like weather forecasting, ACP Pradyuman’s dialogue forecast is at the finger tips of ours’. His each and every phrase are so damnably drilled into our heads that even before he articulates, we pre-cede him.
And where the intellectuality is expected to flow from apex (ACP) to base (Daya, Abhijeet, Fredrick and so on), there the boss just repeats exactly what his juniors utter. Yeah! Only so-called substantial addition from his side is ‘Daya, kuch to gadbad hai’.
Did he play too much of hand-cricket during his school days?
Why doesn’t he juice sweet-lime? Why the heck in CID then?
When Daya either runs like P.T Usha or breaks door like Hulk
Daya is hailed not for racking his brains which unfortunately he is not blessed with but, breaking doors. Be it a steel door or rosewood door, no door on the earth can remain unbroken under Daya’s just-one boot-kick or arm-hit.
When Fredericks himself is scared of criminal
Fredericks is undeniably the joker of CID team. The moment he speaks even if suggestively, he sounds humorous. Had he been as a supportive role in comedy nights with kapil, he would have nailed it there.
When Dr.Salunkhe sounds more like a fighting debater
Every time he is asked to conclude on the forensic reports, he gets into word-war with ACP or Abhijeet. He remains adamant to prove himself right and other team members wrong.
When Abhijeet behaves like Shahrukh of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
They say love-is-in-the-air but I would say, for Abhijeet, love-is-in-the-lab. Co-partner of Dr. Saluke, Dr. Tarika is someone Abhijeet dotes on. Even if she calls an apple a mango, nutty Abhijeet in love nods in content.
