Salman Khan’s iconic question, “Kitne pratishat bharatiya…?” had created a lot of noise, nine years ago when Dus Ka Dum was first launched. While many game shows were becoming popular, this show, loosely based on the popular international reality game show, Power of 10, aired first on 2008. Being one-of-a-kind, Salman made his TV hosting debut with this show. The show opened big and helped Sony regain its third position in Indian television ratings. The show became a rage and ran for two seasons. Graced by many celebrities and contestants, Salman’s show was loved by the masses. After a gap of nine years, the show has returned with a new season and the makers were very hopeful about it. But as it went on air, the first week failed to create an impression. Despite his superstar status, Salman couldn’t bag the needed TRPs to make it to the list of top 20 shows.

Nothing much has changed on the show, except for the fact that the questions have become funnier and according to the makers, the answers are more authentic. While Salman explains the questions, the contestants answer it. Though he tries to spice up things by cracking jokes or puns on his life, the show falls short of creating the much-needed impact. The first episode was disappointing. However, slowly it is becoming crisper and we guess that it will soon catch up. Moreover, viewers also want to see other stars grace the show. When that happens, maybe it will start getting attention. BARC India’s TRP list also delivered the same verdict and thus the show went missing from the top 20 list. We can only wait and watch as to after the TRPs, what new element will the makers add to make it more happening.
