"24" begins with the time duration in which the incidents take occurrence and mind you, one does get a slight feeling that as we are sitting in our couches watching a suspense/drama/thriller TV series, things are happening around us that we don't know of but may affect our times ahead. The notion slips to the back of the mind as the episodes progress, probably because one is so involved with the happenings that the hour seems actually shorter. Relativity, indeed. "24" is a very fine start for an impending paradigm shift on the Indian Television scenario, at least in the Hindi TV series arena. A big, big improvement on the over-used, usual, dominating format of the soap operas and surprisingly, a constant "cliffhanger" consecutively. From the high scale of production to cinematography, from casting to direction - this series is modern and a literal visual "treat". Abhinay Deo (Director 'Delhi Belly') is scoring aces and Anil Kapoor has made good choices, both as the producer and the male lead. Watch it for high octane thrill and a partial sophisticated, partial raw suspense. If you haven't seen it, please do give a try. You won't be left disappointed.
