MUMBAI: The last few years have seen the rise of the crime genre on TV. The number of shows in the genre hasn’t just increased in numbers but also in popularity. Usually featuring the stories from the Indian hinterland or Delhi – the crime capital and the surrounding areas. Not much has been told about the crimes in the city of dreams – Mumbai. However, now Sony Entertainment Television is set to tell the gory stories of Mumbai with a one-month special series – Mission Mumbai.
Mission Mumbai will see the two leading crime shows of the channel – CID and Crime Patrol showcasing the terror, corruption, greed, slavery, molestation, kidnapping prevailing in aamchi Mumbai. ACP Pradyuman and his team and Anoop Soni will depict the tale of horrendous crime stories which have recently taken place in the city.
In CID, ACP and his team will solve a series of mysterious and baffling crime cases of Mumbai – from the locals in the city to the interiors of the bustling city – the team will be seen covering all the lifelines of Mumbai. In fact, to bust the crimes, the CID inspectors will also be seen donning the role of dabbawallas. They will investigate crimes targeting women at the lonely kharghar skywalk to going on a chase across Mumbai in search of clues. The cops would also become passengers on a BEST bus to investigate strange murders on a particular route. The cops also solve a case of missing college girls at kanheri caves, a diamond robbery and a mystery at the worli chawl where the cops go undercover.
In Crime Patrol, two incidents which recently shook the city to the core will be recreated. The first case is about the mysterious disappearance of the small-time theatre actress from Mumbai and the second case focuses on the horrific acid attack which ruined the life of a young girl and took place in Mumbai last year.
Mission Mumbai will start from 7 March onwards, 10:00 pm to 11.30 pm on Sony Entertainment Television.
