Karamchand is an Indian detective TV series telecast in the 1980s. It was broadcast on India's national television channel DD1, 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, always munching on carrots and 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".
