Sometimes, it’s difficult to understand what Indian Tv shows are all about? There’s CID that just doesn’t seem to end. There’s Sasuraal Simar Ka which has naagins and daayans and what not. And then there’s shows like Sansani and Crime Patrol, criminal investigative shows that claim they are based on true stories but have you noticed the way they are filmed? The unnecessary exaggeration, sound effects and the way the anchors speak? They can sometimes put a comedy show to shame.
So, All India Bakchod, an Indian comedy collective which managed to say in news for quite some time a few days ago when its founder Tanmay Bhat released a Snapchat video on Lata Mangeshkar, decided to do a spoof on Crime Patrol titled, “Chindi Crime Patrol”.
In the 12-minute episode, the anchor Anup Phony, tries to solve the mystery of a ‘switched off fan’. Tanmay acting as Ashutosh is the victim and there’s a list of suspects. But the end might end up giving you a shock and leave you in splits.
The video has gone viral on social media with over 300,000 views within two days.
AIB is known for its funny videos and their ‘honest’ page is quite something.
