Sanjeev Bhaskar (best known as 'Sanjay' from the popular TV series 'The Kumars At No.42') portrays private detective Vic Chopra. This new comedy crime drama is very much like 'The Rockford Files' with Chopra getting himself into all types of scrapes as a result of his dubious investigative methods. Written by Farukh Johnson

I loved it!
2 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a great show, please bring on more of the same! so nice to see my old stomping ground (East Ham) being used to show a witty and sharp cast and very clever script. None of the old worn out Asian stereotypes here, (i noticed there were more humorous comments made here of that; the Turk who knew, or was related to the entire Turkish community!- the reality of the Hindu family - and the dip into controversy with him being estranged from his wife) Vik is a fast thinking, funny, likable and very real character, as are the rest of the cast - Neil Stukey in particular. The bit with the Hindu Liberation Front cracked me up completely! My partner is British Asian, very discerning and he howled through it, instead of hiding his head under his cushion! Please don't let this be just a pilot!!! Many thanks Patsy
