Taking first of its kind step in the GEC space, Sony Entertainment Television brings a double bonanza for all the CID and Adalat fans. This Saturday, giving a differentiated twist to its content and programming, KD and the CID cops will come together in a 3 hour special movie CID – Adaalat Karmyuddh to solve a mysterious murder case! Adgully caught up with Abhimanyu Singh, CEO, Contiloe to know more about the same.
When asked about the rationale behind taking this step he said, "It is all about innovation today and we wanted to do something different for our viewers hence thought of taking it through content integration."
As told by Singh, though it took long to kind of conceptualize the story and create a full-packed action platter for the viewers but at the same time it was a great opportunity for him to work with Fire Works production house (which has creating CID) and put together all the iconic characters under one mystery-murder-case movie.
Though the team is quite positive about the response but when asked whether it will have a theatrical release or do they have plans to take it to the bigger screens, he said, "Not as of now. Though this is not the first time that Sony has put together two shows but this is the first time we have come up with a movie like this. So maybe next time we would think on those lines."
Atmanand, a Mahaguru of an Ashram is involved with many international criminals in a scandal. Crime journalist Meghna, daughter of ACP Pradyuman’s friend, goes to the ashram to find out the truth, however she is mysteriously murdered! Atmanand is accused of killing her but KD decides to defend him as he believes he is innocent, against CID’s wish. Investigation reveals the Mahaguru has lookalikes in the ashram and he has been threatened before. It is revealed that one of his lookalikes Kiran was the actual murderer and his disciple Sarvesh is arrested as the mastermind behind the entire ploy.
On the other hand, CID team gets mysterious calls from Meghna’s phone and their doubt about the Mahaguru get stronger. Mahaguru calls KD and while they were in a vault Daya comes in too but a gas leak leaves everyone unconscious leading to the Mahaguru’s murder with murder weapon in KD’s hand. As KD is accused, CID team however does not believe that he can murder somebody for money. On further investigation, the gun dealer is caught and Daya’s name is revealed leading to his arrest. In a turn of events, everyone is shocked when Daya accepts to all the charges on him.
Understanding that something is definitely wrong, KD and the CID team come together to catch the real culprit. The investigation leads to KD and Abhijeet getting trapped and fighting for their life.
While Sony Entertainment's both the shows are one the most appreciated shows with iconic characters hence putting them together in one 3 hour long movie seems to be a positive step for Sony.
