  1. I came up this article quite accidentally.
    A nice write-up!

    I see more similarity between C.I.D and Baazi. The only thing is that the vamp is not allowed to die at the end in C.I.D. and the inspector and the anti-hero are wrapped up in one. In fact the inspector is the only active person in the cast. all other take to their fates very passively!
