BOTY Critic Review

Garima Singh
Rated 90/100
Unlike other serials, CID is very much interesting. Unlike other crime shows, it deals with complex situations which might occur & that too with a great suspense. In between the investigations, ACP Pradyuman & Dr. Salunke's chemistry of nok-jhok keeps coming which makes it more interesting. Overall, it's a very good show.
