Adhu Idhu Edhu is a game show anchored by Ma Ka Pa Anand. The game has three participants. As a new concept, the participants are given 1000 points at the beginning of the show itself and for each round points are deducted/not deducted based on their performance. The first round is called “Groupla Dupe.” In this round, three people of the same profession are called. Out of the three, two of them are actual professionals whereas the third person is trained to act like a professional.
The guests have to press the buzzer first to choose the dupe. The contestants are given two chances – in the first chance the first person pressing the buzzer has the advantage of choosing any of the three and the person who selects the last will be left with the choice not already chosen. In the second chance, the professionals will individually perform, and the guests can change their previous choices at the cost of 100 points. Finally, the non-professional is revealed and every participant making a wrong guess loses 200 points.
The second round is “Siricha Pochu” whereby comedians are trying to make the three contestants laugh with their antiques. The contestant laughing loses points once again – highest of 300 points lost by the contestant who laughs first. The last round is the “Mathi Yosi” round whereby the anchor will ask questions, and the guests are supposed to give completely unrelated answers. The person who gives relevant answers in the shortest duration loses maximum points – 300. This show is aired every Saturday on Vijay TV.
