There is a huge fan base of the crime and thriller genre around the globe. In Indian cinema and the silver screen, we have seen series like Crime Patrol, CID, and Dev smash records due to the public’s love for such themes. The element of unknown and a murder mystery being solved right in front of our eyes has a cathartic effect on us all, but so does the rollercoaster that leads up to it. Here are three reasons why you can binge on murder mysteries without any guilt!
They are incredibly satisfying:
If you’ve been a long-time lover of murder mysteries, you know the joy that comes with solving a good case. While reading a novel helps you unfold the mysteries using your mind’s eye, watching it is even more rewarding. The way the characters portray their roles and depict a series of events can make viewers emotionally invested and unbelievably engrossed. Talk about nail-biting hooks and climaxes- watching the bad guy get caught is incredibly satisfying!
Keep your brain on its toes:
A habit of crime and mystery series aficionados is how we all try to guess who the criminal is until it’s time to find out. The visuals also keep our brains engaged as there are several obvious and hidden clues. These are especially better when we rewatch a favorite old series like Detective Dev where you may find clues that were previously missed out on.
Sharpen your intelligence with complex problem-solving:
The mind needs to be exercised frequently to stay active, just like our body. When you mix entertainment with a good mystery, you’re helping your mind stay sharp. With complex cases that have major twists and turns, you may learn something cool to adapt into your critical thinking skills. Crime series are effective because humans learn better with visuals.
For those living abroad, the entertainment sought from an old Hindi crime series is unparalleled. Switch up the nostalgia and tune into Dev, your favorite crime detective on Desi Play TV for the US audience!
