Crime Shows In India Continue To Rain on Television
When you were a teenager, you may have had very few TV channels and shows to watch. Most of you may have preferred cartoons, and to certain extent reality shows like dance shows. Even your parents may be tuned to watch the typical ‘Saas-Bahu’ melodrama, or the romantic comedies, which were brought in by the inception of television.
However, recent years have seen a shift in viewers’ choices owing to the launch of several crime shows. One of the popular crime shows, Crime Patrol, has now become a favourite of numerous teenagers and adults. People in general love the element of curiosity, whether it is showed in a romantic story, or whether it is portrayed in crime mysteries.

One more show, which deals to spread awareness about crime in society, is Savdhaan India. This show also films real-life crime cases, but also portrays the justice received. The aim of this show is to spread a word about the disparities of our society. These shows are meant for social awareness.
