Aakash Aath airs longest crime fiction in regional media space

KOLKATA: Bengali general entertainment channel (GEC) Aakash Aath has already aired 3,000 hours of crime fiction called Police Filez. The channel further said that it is the longest for any regional media to run a show like this one.

The channel has plans to continue the show. What?s more the show is also a part of the channel?s CSR activity as it makes people socially aware and helps them to comprehend and safeguard themselves from such brutal crime.

Police Filez is a real life crime based fiction. Aakash Aath has been covering almost all the crimes that take place and enacts it in the most real format. Stories are shown up till judgment/judgments pending. Police Filez is telecast from Monday to Saturday from 8.30 - 9.30 pm.

?Our Police Filez series is doing very well. It is delivering around 25 per cent of the numbers alone in terms of audience viewership. We are the only one in the regional space to have a show like this. We have made approximately 3,000 hours of crime fiction. We plan to continue the show,? said Aakash Aath director Eshita Surana.

Surana further explains that while there are instances of national TV channels running crime related shows for years, in the Bengal TV space, this is a new development.

The show sometimes depicts gruesome acts. When queried on the purpose behind showing such acts on TV, Surana says, ?Judgments are important to be shown as they would make the upcoming crime performers scared of it and this in turn might help in reduction of crime. Newspapers just write about the case on one day and then people don?t get to know what happened to the victim and what its judgment was,? she said.

The show also has a special segment called 'Dharma Number,? through which viewers are educated on the punishments that fall under various sections and how they can move towards filing a case and fighting for judgment.

Explaining further on how the channel?s telecast is helping the society, Surana says, ?It was just after our telecast that the main culprit was caught in the Kamduni rape case, which has shaken the state.?

Referring to the Pandua Acid Case she adds, ?In this case, after the telecast, the victim got monetary help from a viewer for her medical treatment. A show like this helps the masses at times to identify probable crimes before they take place and they can also take precautionary measures, and protect themselves.?
