Karamchand was a popular Indian detective TV series telecast in the 1980s. It was broadcast on India's national television channel DD National, and was one of India's first detective series.[1] The title character was played by noted actor Pankaj Kapur. The role of his assistant Kitty was played by Sushmita Mukherjee. Famous music director duo Anand-Milind composed the theme music and title track for the series.


Karamchand is a detective who helps the local police solve murders in his inimitable style, often playing chess with the Police inspector A Khan. He has a funny assistant, Kitty. And whenever she asks a silly question, or almost reveals the secret, Karamchand says Shut up, Kitty.


Later version[edit]

Sony Entertainment Television revived this serial in February 2007. Pankaj Kapur reprised his role as the carrot chewing Karamchand while Kitty was played by Sucheta Khanna. The second version of the program aired on Saturdays at 9:00 PM. However, it failed to create the same magic.
