[W]hat explains C.I.D's success, especially since, as a genre, crime thrillers have had very little success on Indian TV? The main reason, perhaps, is the fact that it's a programme that can be watched by everyone from 10 to 80 years of age, in the A-cities as well as the B-towns. Though crime is the subject, there's very little of violence, or blood, actually shown -- and "no crime against women or children", says Ajay Bhalwankar, SET's programming head. "The serial enjoys huge traction among the youth," says Niret Alva, chairman of production company Miditech, who confesses he watches it regularly with his two children. "The stories are basic, not too clever, not too smart. Very rarely do you get the feeling that you've come across this idea before. Besides, it's been around for so long that the faces have grown familiar." Working so long on one show has given the team what Alva calls "the purity of narrow focus", giving it a consistency that partly explains C.I.D's success.--Gargi Gupta, Rediff, July 27, 2010
