Life OK to air crime-comedy show ‘Daffa 420’ from 15 August
MUMBAI: Besides reality, the two genres that have been dominating the weekend programming bands of the Hindi general entertainment channels are crime and comedy. In order to give the best of both to its audiences, Life OK has blended both the genres to bring a new crime-comedy show ‘Daffa 420’.
Launching on 15 August, the show will air at 8 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. It will showcase two conmen and a cop who join hands to solve bizarre cases of scams and conning.
The chase between a cop and a conman has always been prevalent. But when they both tie up, their relationship becomes even more exciting and that is what the channel aims to showcase.
Manoj Pahwa (Chand) plays a pivotal role in the show along with the versatile actor Amit Mistry (Bhola).
Yuvika Chaudhary (Anusha) plays the role of an honest and sharp police officer. She is challenged with bizarre cases that prove difficult to crack while keeping to the code of law. Through Chand and Bhola, she gets an insight into a conman’s mind which leads her to solve these bizarre cases.
Life OK spokesperson said, “We are excited about the launch of this all new genre of fictional comedy-crime series with a unique storyline and promising actors. Manoj Pahwa and Amit Mistry have an exceptional comic timing and Yuvika Chaudhary is a very talented actor. I’m sure they will entertain the audience and give the show an interesting look. We are optimistic about the show and trust the viewers will enjoy it too.”
‘Daffa 420’ is co-produced in collaboration with Saregama India and Mahir Films.
Saregama India Ltd business head TV Manish Popat said, “Saregama Productions is looking forward to the launch of Daffa 420. It is an upbeat comedy-crime show with talented actors and a very jovial story line that will entertain the audience with every episode. Anusha and the duo Chand and Bhola will bring in lots of laughter and entertainment as they crack absurd con cases.”
Mahir Films producer Mahir Khan added, “This is a one of a kind show which has been inspired by world famous cons. We conducted extensive research for almost three years and are very pleased with the outcome. The modus operandi of these confident tricksters comes alive in a beautiful way throughout all the episodes. Our core focus was to ensure it is a family drama by limiting the violence factor.”
Chand is a cynic-chauvinist strategist who, with his sharp and witty mind, reads what the naked eye can’t. His partner, Bhola, who is always in awe of him, loyally follows all his orders and considers him his hero.
