Shahrukh disappoints with his 'Shaanpatti'!

Shahrukh Khan is back on the small screen hosting a new show India Poochega - Sabse Shana Kaun? on a new channel. But just like his past television history with Kya Aap Panchvi Paas Se Tez Hain and the supremely pathetic, Wipeout (India), the actor once again dissapoints us in the role of a host.

Known to have one of the most charismatic personalities in the Bollywood industry, Shahrukh fails to deliver that charm when he is on TV like he did when he entered the industry in serials like Fauji and Circus.

The show started yesterday with the launch of the channel itself and we saw SRK being his usual jolly self as the anchor. From the jokes that Shahrukh cracked, to his chats with the contestants and the audience, the entire episode looked too scripted. The star incorporated his marketing skills here too as he used some catchphrases and songs from his last movie Happy New Year during the episode.

The concept of the show is very simple; the contestants have to answer questions to win money and the questions apparently come from the common people around India. But there seems to be no axe hanging on the head of the players which lessens the excitement of watching a quiz show. The contestants are given umpteen number of chances to correct their mistakes unlike other shows where there is a fear of losing. Also, the show wastes a lot of time with it's host prancing around the set and obviously, spouting some of his famous dialogues than actually playing the game. Although we love Shahrukh for this perky, funny side of his, he should keep this act restrained to his movies and award functions where we will be able to appreciate it.

Several stars in Bollywood like Govinda, Salman and Shahrukh himself, have tried to host the question-answer based game shows but in our hearts they fail to resonate with the strong significance of the magnifence of Amitabh Bachchan in Kaun Banega Crorepati.

Our verdict -

Unless you are an avid Shahrukh Khan fan or are bored with the usual fare of saas-bahu TV serials, you can certainly give this one a miss. Better luck next time, Shahrukh.
