There is a strong recall for this genre and hence we decided to bring this genre back on air in an all new & contemporary treatment. Pritam & Pyaare are all set to be India’s favorite Ghost Busters!”
In the show, Pritam & Pyaare, solve a ghost buster case accidentally, at the first instance and earn appreciation for it. Taking that seriously, they then setup a laboratory where they research & create useless yet unique gadgets to solve cases involving ghosts, which though are actually of no use in trapping ghosts. However, incidents happen accidentally and the cases get solved even when their gadgets fail or are forgotten at home, which only get Pritam and Pyaare to think that this has happened because of them & their favorite gadgets!
Other actors in the show are Tiku Talsania, Parineeta Bothakur, Tapasya Daljeet Soundh and Rajesh Kumar as the vampire ‘Dara Koyla’, a tall, lean, aristocratic- looking ghost, who speaks with immaculate dignity.
