TV Review: India's Magic Star
There are just two reasons for this show to fetch the ratings it has: magic tricks that are unlike what one may have seen on other shows on TV and the concept of a reality show woven around magic tricks.Updated: Jul 15, 2010 13:49 IST
Show:India’s Magic Star
Time: 9 pm, Friday-Saturday
Cast: Jackie Shroff and magicians
That apart, the show appears pretty dull, thanks to the look of the set. There are mentoring magicians who have a team of five-six magicians each. They compete over magic tricks. Judge Jackie Shroff tries to inject some fun. Karishma Tanna, the host of the show, is passable. There’s nothing she does that another girl couldn’t have done.
Despite having magic tricks, the show lacks magic!
What we like
The concept is cool and the quality of magicians chosen to participate is good.
Jackie Shroff tries to be fun and succeeds too.
We don’t like
The overall presentation of the show.
Lovely magic tricks get killed, thanks to the way the show is pieced together.
