Storyline

An Indian version of the popular quiz show, "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" Contestants start off with easy questions, but as they move forward the questions get more and more challenging. To help them out, they are given "lifelines" that let them either eliminate two of the four possible answers, call a friend at home for help, or take a poll of the audience for what they think the right answer is. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Used to be good, not anymore
2 October 2017 | by Catgurl22See all my reviews

I remember vividly when the first season of the show started. It was fantastic. The questions came from a wide variety of genre and thus really tested a contestant's overall knowledge.

The host, Amitabh, was very charming and used to engage in light-hearted conversation with the contestants, most of whom were big fans of his. The contestants would request him to recite a dialogue from his movies or narrate their experience of watching his movies. They would also joke about how they would use their prize money, with some planning to produce their own movies while others intending to buy a house next to Amitabh's.

However, over the years all these great aspects of the show have been slowly disappearing and the show becoming increasingly jingoistic. The current season can hardly be called a game show. It is more of a socio-political forum. The majority of the questions are either about Indian politics or Indian sports.

The contestants and Amitabh talk about nothing but their country and how the prize money is going to be used for the greater good. Unless you are a hardcore Indian nationalist, don't bother watching this show.
