This TV Series is often referred by various articles as a path-breaking TV Serial. It is true partially. Though these days we see saas-bahu family drama, religious TV serials which are often stretched too much and some not-so-good-quality TV series hogging up most of the air time; the Indian Television was presented with versatile content even from the early Doordarshan days. (Of course, 24 is a real good crime-thriller TV series to go for).
The series was shot with the latest technology and hence you will find the audio and video quality up to the mark. It often gives you the cinematic experience. The background score also stands out.
Short summary: The TV Serial is packed with powerful performances for rightly chosen actors to play respective role, the tight screenplay and proper dialogs. The background music, the overall authentic representation of various aspects of political, criminal and high society world are other plus points. The flawless direction and good camera work makes is a visual treat for thriller lovers. Please make sure that there are some scenes where actions are hardcore and require parental consent to view it.
