It contained three teams that had to face the various musical challenges to win the episode.
One of the tasks is to guess the song just by hearing to the instrumental tune of that song. The teams need to press the buzzer and guess the song. If you could guess it correct, then you will have to sing about two or three lines of that song with your partner, and you will get plus points for that. But even after pressing the buzzer, you couldn’t guess the right song then your points will decrease. There was another game in which all the teams will have to pick out a chit from the glass bowl. Whatever word is given in the chit, using that particular word the participant will have to sing a song.
The interesting thing was that each team is given a title like; ‘Mastane’, ‘ Deewane’ and ‘Parwane’. The show earned huge fan following and popularity.
