The height of hysteria!!
This post is fully dedicated to the tv show that has in recent times made me run for cover.
Aired at the most prime time slot in the most watched channel in tamil, thats the
thaga thaga thaga thaga "THANGA VETTAI" for you.
And those of you who come up with the yaarukumilladha akkarai asking " Why did u watch it If it was so boring??" , the author did try to change the mind of the adamant relative who insisted on watching the show and ended up going thru this 30 minutes of terror( partly coz i dint kno much abt it and partly coz with nothing better to do i had to live with it)
Normally any game show can be reviewed according to three criteria.
2.The rules and the prize money.
3.THE THRILL AND ENTERTAINMENT.
And the show fails in all aspects.....
1. the compere ramya's histrionics resemble a person escaped from mental asylum half way thru the treatment.
The cry she lets out makes u think as if some one nailed her . I pity the aged persons who participate and who watch the show.
2.The rules are as silly as if the sun tv network have some smuggled gold which they are desparately adamant on giving( read throwing) away.
The question for three grams of gold was " how many colours are there in the rainbow?"
and lo the Derek 'O brien question was cracked and amidst all the heaving and sighing the participant walked away with three grams of gold.
3.The only element of thrill in the whole show is that u never know wen ramya will shout like a maniac making ur mom throw away the paathram from her hand, leaving u with one hand on the remote .
The participants over act and the false tension irritates you so much that u infer them to be constipated.
The worst part is wen a lady amongst the participant ask every week about the saree and jewellery ramya is wearing and she painfully explains abt the gujarati emroidery in the mysore silk with kanchipuram border matched by the american diamond necklace embeddded with ruby stones....Phew.
And i wont blame sun tv as long as people like these exist.
P.S Another show though of different genre , star vijay's super singer is really worth the watch.
The talent hunt promises both thrill and entertainment as the judge's decision to whether to select a participant or not is a bolt out of the blue.
