Avar kandumuttumbol is a unique Malayalam chat show aired on Mathrubhumi News television channel.
This show has a different format in which instead of a regular celebrity interviewee and interviewer pattern, two celebrities meet and chat with each other. The show is set in a casual background to retain the originality.
The celebrities often discuss about each other’s work, interest, hobbies, upcoming projects and other matters of common interest. Mostly the celebrities who come together in an episode are from the same industry and background. Sometimes avar kandumuttumbol also becomes a plat from for old friends to meet after a long time to acquaintances to know each other better. This results in very realistic discussions which are quite enjoyable. Some of the hit combinations on the show were: actor
Kunchacko Boban & director
Lal Jose, industrialists Sri. Kochouseph chittilappilly & Smt. Beena Kannan, Lathika and Jensy who were the sweet voices of Malayalam and Tamil playback singing, writer sisters Sugatha Kumari & Hridaya Kumari, Actors Balachandra Menon & Ambika, directors
Suresh Menon & Rajasenan, cricketers Sreeshanth & Tinu Yohannan, poets Bichu Tirumala & Syam, Mohanlal & Sathyan Anthikkad, Sukumari & KPAC Lalitha etc.
The selection of the guests for each episode is done very carefully to include people who were/are active in a particular filed at the time period to bring out the nostalgic moments as well. Avar kandumuttumbol is an answer to the common man’s curiosity about the discussions between celebrities when they meet.
