Amazon miniTV, the free streaming service, continues to expand its content collection by featuring new genres and fresh stories. “Crimes Aaj Kal,” a forthcoming series produced by Subbu and Optimystix Entertainment, will showcase true-crime stories in India, hosted by Vikrant Massey. The show delves into crimes committed by children and each episode will feature a new case, sure to shock and awe viewers. The first three episodes will be available on Amazon MiniTV starting March 24, 2023.
“Crimes Aaj Kal,” produced by Optimystix and developed by the team behind “Crime Patrol,” presents a detailed timeline of events, featuring participants as if they were characters in a movie. Hosted by Vikrant Massey, the true-crime series explores cases where young people have reached a “Dead End,” venting their resentment, envy, and need for instant gratification, leading them to become targets or perpetrators. The show promises to delve deeply into each case, exposing the truth behind the crimes.
Vikrant Massey on being a part of the series said, “I have grown up watching shows like crime patrol, CID, etc. and I am sure many people like me miss watching such shows. It was a surreal feeling when I got the opportunity to host Crimes Aaj Kal. The series focuses on real life stories, situations and incidents that one might never even wonder of. Through the series, viewers can watch stories from across the nation, and witness crimes committed by young fearless criminals.”
Girish Prabhu, Head of Amazon Advertising said, “We at Amazon miniTV are glad to be able to share real life stories emerging mostly amidst the young generation, allowing viewers to evaluate the issues from a variety of viewpoints within the confines of the real-life situations.”
He further added, “We wanted to bring forth and share with the larger audience the shocking incidents and least expected actions of a human. Joining hands with Optimystix Entertainment for this project was a fabulous experience, and having Vikrant Massey, an incredible human being and a terrific actor host the show, kind of made it a perfect content package.”
Talking about the new title, Vipul D Shah, Founding Chairman & MD, Optimystix Entertainment said, “It is always fascinating to observe how diversely capable the human mind is and to establish a reference point for the numerous psychological explanations that underlie many well-known crime stories. Crimes Aaj Kal focuses on this aspect, underlining teen and youth stories. With riveting stories in each episode and intricate storytelling by our host Vikrant, we hope to make this series a must-watch bringing to light the true stories.”
It’s time to buckle up and board an Amazon miniTV to investigate some enigmatic cases! Crimes Aaj Kal, an Optimystix Entertainment production, is scheduled to make its free Amazon MiniTV and Fire TV debut on March 24.
