On 24, i never really watch any tv shows but i found this show somewhat gripping. Anil Kapoor is as usual, you know he's in form when he looks hassled!

So basically they are going to take 24 episodes to show what happened in 24hrs?? That means it will be 3 months till the finale?

Yes that is hilarious! I was waiting for someone to point it out . Incidentally there *were* a couple of Stormes used in the first couple of episodes. I missed the start and was admiring the clever product placement and then I saw Anil Kapoor's car and was like...what the HELL!

By the way, I must be the only guy in this thread who skipped the original completely and is watching the Hindi version!

Season 3 finale of TWD holds a record viewership of 12.4 million viewers, a feat no other serial till date could match or best. Not even amc's best show BrBa!

Me too, haven't catch the original but trying to catch up with the Indian version. Btw, when exactly are they airing the episodes? It seems like they have aired only 3episodes till now and I was expecting they would new episodes daily.

Btw, I guess you guys must have spotted the uncanny resemblance of the political family in the series to that of the real life ones

Saw one episode yesterday. As i had seen the original i wont be watching this as it looks like they had copied it scene to scene. But a very good effort indeed by indian tv show standards.
However i will recommend everyone to watch the original as well.

I do not think the TATA guys are this dumb. Watch the next couple of episodes, and you will know

I only remember seeing Scorpio's & an Endeavour! The only Safari Storme seen in the show is of Tisca Chopra's companion when they go in search of their daughter.

I am yet to watch the Indian 24 but from the cast details on Wiki looks like they are doing adaptation of stories too & not just the format.

So the first season is going to be the same story as US 24 season 1 adapted to Indian Context, is that correct?

Oh that's a downer for me, but i guess it would still be interesting for all those who haven't seen the original. And for those who have seen it, it might be interesting to see how good the adaptation is.
