This Independence Day, Life OK will explore the genre of crime and comedy with the premiere of ‘Daffa 420’. The show will air every Saturday and Sunday at the 8.00 pm slot and will replace crime show ‘Savdhaan Maharashtra’, the secondary show from the ‘Savdhaan India’ stable.
‘Daffa 420’ is co-produced in collaboration with Saregama India and Mahir Films.
Starring Manoj Pahwa, Amit Mistry and Yuvika Chaudhary in key roles, ‘Daffa 420’ is about a unique partnership between conmen and a police officer who get together to solve bizarre cases of scams and conning. Some of these con stories are said to be loosely inspired by real life incidents.
Anusha (Yuvika Chaudhary) is 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 (Manoj Pahwa) and Bhola (Amit Mistry), she gets an insight into a conman’s mind, which leads her to solve these bizarre cases. This unusual partnership evokes instant laughter and adventure in this light crime caper.
Commenting on the show, a 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.”
Manish Popat of Saregama Productions added here, “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 Khan, Producer at Mahir Films, commented, “This is a one-of-a-kind show which has been inspired by some real life 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.”
