Media Response

The show was described by the media as "one of India's most ambitious TV shows". It is one of the most expensive TV shows ever produced in India and the first to have a Bollywood star in the lead


The Indian adaptation of '24', retains all the elements of the international series, the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with 24 episodes capturing 24 hours. The premiere episode will follow the exploits of heroic Anti Terrorist Unit agent Jai Singh Rathod played by Anil Kapoor. Racing against time with the clock ticking, Jai Singh Rathod, is suddenly thrust into a chaotic and exhausting 24 hour marathon, of death, deceit, terror as he struggles to prevent the assassination of prime ministerial candidate Aditya Singhania. According to Kapoor, the series, which will be "related to the Indian ethos", will follow an Anti-Terrorist Unit (ATU), similar to the Counter Terrorism (CTU) Unit in the original series
