’24’ season 1 completes its final episode

The Indian adaptation of 24, brought to India by Bollywood star Anil Kapoor finally got over yesterday with its final episode (24). 24 is based on the American television series of the same name, produced by Fox Network, starring Hollywood star Kiefer Sutherland as counter-terrorist unit agent Jack Breuer. The Indian adaptation featured Anil Kapoor as anti-terrorist unit agent Jai Rathod who is racing against time with the clock ticking. He is faced with the Herculean task within the time-frame of 24 hours to prevent the assassination of Prime Ministerial candidate, Aditya Singhania. The 24 hours then becomes a marathon of death, deceit and  terror as Jai Rathod encounters difficulties one after another to combat the political conspiracy.

The show has been superbly directed by Abhinay Deo (of Delhi Belly fame) and is written by Rensil D’Silva, Bhavani Iyer and Priya Pinto. To ensure the adaptation was a well-written one, the writer of the original series Patrick Harbinson was even called upon to have a brainstorming session with the team of Indian writers so that the script finds its way in a just manner to the Indian television. The show divided among 24 episodes unfolded like a political-thriller with complex and interweaving storylines involving corruption and terrorism. 24 retained all the signature elements of the the Kiefer Sutherland-starrer original which became a huge hit abroad and won numerous awards. The pulse-pounding story, combined with fast-paced storytelling was present in the Indian version too. Even Kiefer Sutherland expressed his desire to work in the Indian adaptation too. Anil Kapoor made sure that the production quality of the series remains consistently high and for this, the whole cast and crew worked very hard to make the show a laudable one.

Those who have seen the episode of the original one spot the similarities easily, for instance the split screen and rapid editing has been retained to give it the feel of a fast-paced thriller. With such shows, the standard on the Indian television is expected to rise and it is only a positive signal that mainstream Bollywood stars are taking interest in Indian television and trying to bring quality shows in India as a breath of fresh air. Although 24 got an average to good response from Indian audience and the popularity of Kapil Sharma’s comedy nights is quite high this season (another great TV show), the future only seems bright for Indian television. It is expected that after 24, Anil Kapoor is trying to bring another hit American political TV series ‘Homeland’ to Indian television screen. Well, we shall wait eagerly!

    24’s climax was exciting but expected a little better closing scene. Jay meeting his children in the hospital after his wife’s death and he consoling his

    children would have been better instead of the long shot of the tata safari storme.
