MUMBAI: Anil Kapoor’s ’24’ is probably about to change Indian television forever. For an audience used to saas-bahu soaps and reality shows, here is a show that is a political thriller and slickly produced at that.

More importantly, the word-of-mouth after the first episode seems to be very encouraging.

Most praise is reserved for director Abhinay Deo, who has brought his directorial ability to the show and for Anil Kapoor who single-handedly stole the spotlight from everyone.

On Twitter, Anil Kapoor, who recently joined the social networking site, was praised a lot and even trended. Bollywood colleagues spoke about it as well.

The audience too has loved the first episode, most of them praising Anil Kapoor for his performance.

Buzz is that Kiefer Sutherland who plays Jack Bauer in the Hollywood ’24’ could make a guest appearance in an episode. Also a season 2 is already allegedly being planned with shooting to begin in November. This is surely a big boost for a show that is bound to break barriers in Indian television.
