It is a very popular and well-received show. It is aired weekly, and there are three guest celebrities who participate. The program involves three levels. Players are provided with a thousand points at the start and may lose points at every level. The one having the maximum number of points at the end of the three rounds eventually wins the game.
Round :1 Yaaru ma ne
The first round is called Yaaru ma ne(English: who is this). The eyes of the participants are tied up. There is one person infront of them who are dressed for a particular profession (eg. Barbers,dancers, farmers etc.).The ancor will give them three clues. r. First, the participants are given 15 seconds to lock a guess on who is the impostor through the buzzer. The fastest to sound the buzzer gets to lock first, and the subsequent participants cannot lock his choice. After the initial locking, each professional gives a short performance relating to his profession (for eg. Dancers perform a small dance). After the performances, the participants are then given the option of changing their initial lock at a cost of 100 points. Once the participants have changed their options, if they wish to, the impostor is then revealed. Points are deducted on a cumulative basis for the participants who guessed wrong, whereas the right guesser’s points are left untouched.
Round 2: Siricha Pochu
The second round is called Siricha Pochu (English: Lose if you laugh). This round is arguably the USP of the show. The participants are shown a stand up comedy performance from either one or a group of the show’s comedians. During the performance, the participants lose points if they laugh or smile. The participants are instructed to only look at the performance without covering their mouths. The points are once again deducted in a cumulative fashion based on the order of participants who laughed. Some of the popular comedians who star in this round include Robo Shankar, Vadivel Balaji, Singapore Deepan, Vignesh Karthick, Amudhavanan,Jeyachandran, Diwakar and Arisumootai Pazhani. The former four are especially considered expert comedians who excel in mimicry and are often able to make all three participants laugh in the episode.
Round 3: Maathi Yosi
The third round is called Maathi Yosi (English:Think Different). In this round, each participant is called in order of highest points first to have an interview with the host. During the interview, the participant has to provide a completely unrelated answer to each question posed by the host. If the participant answers the question with a related answer or uses the same answer twice, they are considered out. Again, the points are deducted on a cumulative basis.
The show was initially hosted by Sivakarthikeyan before his debut as an actor. His style of hosting, his natural wit and ability to create laughter riots effortlessly, especially with the comedians of Round 2, were well received. He was considered one of the main highlights of the show and grew very popular with the youth demographic. The show celebrated its 150th episode on 21 April 2012 and was highlighted by inviting its Round 2 comedians as guests. On the show's episode dated 4 August 2012, Sivakarthikeyan formally arrived to hand over the job of anchor to Ma Ka Pa Anand. Ma Ka Pa Anand has been anchoring the show ever since.
The show is telecast every Saturday night at 7PM. The show is directed by Thomson who has earlier directed comedy shows such as Kalakapovathu Yaaru and Comedy Kings.
