Suraag – The Clue
Suraag – The Clue is an Indian television detective-crime drama series that aired on DD National in the late 90s on every Monday at 10:00 to 11:00 pm IST. The series, starring Sudesh Berry as CID Inspector Bharat in the main lead, was directed by Gautam Adhikari and produced by Shri Adhikari Brothers Limited. In the drama, Inspector Bharat and his assistant Inspector Srivastav formed a formidable partnership in solving crimes, mostly murder mysteries. This series, unlike previous detective-crime dramas in India, involved tackling of one case every episode and seldom were the story or case of one episode continued to the next one. The title track of the series is a modified version of Smoke on the Water, a song by British rock band Deep Purple. After the drama ended, a new series called "CID Officer" was aired on the same time. It was described by the media as "unofficial extension" of the Suraag.
