Ssshhhh...Koi Hai (English: Ssshhhh...Someone is) was an Indian thriller/horror television anthology series created by Prem Krishen Malhotra and Abhimanyu Singh for Star Plus. The first season was created by them together, while later seasons were only created by Abhimanyu Singh. The location of the series is set in Mumbai, India. The series which premiered on 27 July 2001, ran for three seasons ending on 16 May 2010, with a total of more than 350 episodes produced.[1]


The series was based on fictional stories. The first season's each story was based on a terrifying tale of an evil spirit, wizard, creature or psychopath. The stories of the second season were based on the legends that are buried in the deep jungles, passed on as fears and superstitions among the tribals and villagers, which are almost lost in the sands of time. The story-lines were expanded to different cities of India. Each region had its own folklore and horror legends associated deeply with its aboriginal culture.[2] In the third season, there was only one story and was aired consecutively for 2 months.


When Aditya Singh and brother Abhimanyu started their production house Contiloe Films Private Ltd in 1996, all they had was a vision in mind. For the first three years, the duo made serials for Doordarshan.[3]

Together, Aditya and Abhimanyu have a agreement - while Aditya is involved in conceiving and developing concepts and marketing them to the channel, Abhimanyu takes over the production and the actual execution of projects. However, of late, the duo admitted they are broadening their horizons. Abhimanyu gets more involved with the creatives and Aditya focuses on evolving the company's future plans for growth, including recruitments.[3]

Abhimanyu Singh was partnering with Cinevistaas for post-production facilities. He said "We have a very comfortable working relationship with Cinevistaas. Presently, we are doing Ssshhhh...Koi Hai as a joint venture with them."[3]

Season 1[edit]

The initial season of the show started on 27 July, 2001 airing its first episode. This season was relayed as individual episodes, each with a length of 40-45 minutes aired every Friday at 10 PM IST. The narratives of the episodes were mostly mythical accounts of evil spirits, wizards or any devilish being, presented under some indicative titles.[1]

Various well-known actors and artists appeared in intermittent roles. To name a few, Shiva Rindani, Vindu Dara Singh, Mamik Singh, with Ronit Roy, Yatin Karyekar, Mac Mohan, Lalit Parimoo, Sunil Grover, Murali Sharma, Hrishikesh Pandey-Parmeet Sethi-Kamya Panjabi, Himani Shivpuri and manifold noted actors & actresses of the screen in diverse portrayal of the series.[citation needed]



The show takes place after the return of Mayakal, who was the most powerful wizard. He captured Vikraal. Guru Satyacharya observed that Vikraal could not handle the situation alone, and therefore decided to call Mitunjay's daughter Bijli and Captain Kishan in to help Vikraal. These three defeated Mayakaal. Because of this, the three Ghost-busters were called the Trikaal, who were always ready to fight against Evil powers. The show lost its popularity after Mamik Singh was removed from the role of Vikraal. After the contribution of both of Trikaal no one was supposed to kill them. They fight with ghosts and get caught in bottles. They also have an office known by Trikaal's office.[citation needed]

Season 2[edit]

The second season was titled Ssshhhh...Phir Koi Hai. This season was created by Abhimanyu Singh which premiered on Star Plus' sister channel Star One on 3 November 2006. It was a weekly season and aired on every Friday at 10 PM IST.[4] On 14 December 2007, the season aired twice a week on every Friday and Saturday.[2] On 22 August 2009, the season went off air due to the decreasing TRP ratings of this show.[5] Govind Agrawal won the Best Director (Horror/Thriller) at the Indian Telly Awards 2007.

Season 3[edit]

Ssshhhh...Phir Koi Hai 3 was the third and the final season, which was telecast on 19 March 2010 bi-weekly on every Friday and Saturday at 10 PM IST.[6] On 10 April 2010, the season shifted to every Saturday and Sunday. The series wrapped up on 16 May 2010.[7]


Critical response[edit]

The first and the second seasons were appreciated very much by the audiences and received positive response. The third season failed to grab eyeballs of the audiences and got mostly negative response. Overall, the series received mixed response.[citation needed]


The first season mostly got a TRP of 2.5. The premiere episode of the second season received with a TRP of 2.68, making Ssshhhh...Phir Koi Hai one of the most successful shows on Star One. The first and second seasons fetched good TRPs with every passing week.[8] Third season got a negative rating of 1.5 TRPs.
