Show:Big Money

Station: Imagine

Time: 9 pm, Saturday-Sunday

Cast: R.Madhavan and four-member families

The concept of a game show revolving around the small screen is fabulous. The format of the show is cool too: the idea of linking each member of the family by asking them one question each and allowing them to interchange their positions at every level depending on what the topic for the level is and the life-lines or ‘insurances’ provided.

MadhavanThe difficulty level of questions sometimes is inconsistent: for level one, you might find some super-complicated questions and for higher levels, you might stumble upon questions that even a child can answer. R. Madhavan is better off as an actor. He doesn’t live up to the expectations one has from the host of an interactive game show. One has to give it to Siddharth Basu’s team for designing an excellent set.

What we like
The show marks the re-entry of game/quiz shows on TV.
The questions are fun and one play the game at home with their own family members. The show sustains audience attention.
The format and the set design of the show is excellent.

We don’t like
At some points, the show appears fixed: the difficulty level and nature of some questions don’t match the segment they feature in.
Madhavan appears uncomfortable .
The timing of the show clashes with popular movies on other channels.
