Sourav Ganguly's Dadagiri begins with a bang.
Sourav Ganguly’s Dadagiri begins with a bang.
Bengalies after every 6 months of Zee Bangla Dadagiri Program, wait for the commencement of the program for the next season. This had been the story for the last 4 years.
On 18th November, 2014, Zee Bangla Dadagiri started with a bang. Sourav Ganguly started season 5 of Dadagiri with 6 contestants. It is going to be shown at 10 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The format of the game had remained the same. In 2011 Mithun Chakravarty anchored Dadagiri. Superstar Mithun Chakravarty had hosted and anchored many programs in Bengali channels including Dance Bangla Dance. The program was excellent and credit goes to Mithun Chakravarty for pulling the crowd once again between 9.30 and 11.30 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
The first round shown was toss round. The second round was named Pack up or panga. In that round the contestants got positive marks for right answers, negative for the wrong answers. Even for bonus answers the rule was the same. Mithun Chakravarty showed a scene from Amitabh Bacchan’s film Do Anjane, where he also acted in a small role. Those were the struggling days of Mithun Chakravarty. Later on he acted in big roles sometimes matching the stardom of even Big B in films like Agneepath.
In the googly round, intelligent questions were asked. A Professor of Bengali institution who participated in the program came and touched Mithun Chakravarty. He said that participating in a program by standing so close to Mithun Chakravarty was a dream to him. In the googly round a participant was asked the question how could a mug which had a crack inside could be used to draw water. The participant answered that the crack was in the handle, the water never leaked. It was a very intelligent question.
Mithun also showed his wit by laughing at a special moustache of a participant. The participant said if his wife had to marry him, she had to love the moustache before marrying him. The names of the rounds have changed if compared with Dadagiri Program during Sourav Ganguly’s time. But even then Mithun Chakravarty had maintained the charm and is expected to a great job in the coming rounds of Dadagiri because his wide experience of acting dancing in the all India arena had created a national dimension which he uses in different programs. He is liked by everyone and is doing a great job.
One of the participants in 2014, Sujata Chakravarty was a cricketer. She bowled a ball to Sourav Ganguly. Sourav Ganguly did a great job as an anchor in the show.
