Salman Khan impresses with '10 Ka Dum'

Posted on Saturday, June 07, 2008 (EST)

une 7, 2008 (Sawf News) - Not unexpectedly, Sony Television's 10 Ka Dum reality game show, hosted by Salman Khan, made an engaging debut on Saturday night, June 7, and for all the predictable reasons - Salman's earthy humor, confidence and ability to charm.

The choice of contestants for the opening episode was interesting and is probably indicative of a desire to connect with the masses, something Salman does spontaneously.

Even more interesting was the manner in which Salman let the contestants do most of the talking and hog the cameras. He didn't just let them have their say, he baited them to do so with well timed questions.

The show's big draw is Salman Khan and Salman's big draws are his popularity, single status, controversial past, enigmatic nature, earthiness and ability to connect with ordinary people.

For example who else could have come up with a gem like this on national TV?

When a contestant alluded to Salman's ability to be amidst the girls Salman responded - Mere father ne ek saand paida kia hai, log apni apni gaai bachain - My father gave birth to a stud bull. It is up to the people to keep their cows safe!

In the past Salman has limited his exposure to the media and refrained from doing TV commercials, something that will stand him in good stead now. A lot of people will watch the show to understand Salman better. Is he the Bollywood bad boy that the media projects him as, or the soft hearted hopeless romantic with a hot body?

By letting his contestants to do the talking, Salman is encouraging potential viewers not just to watch the show, but also to participate in it, while continuing to limit his own media exposure.

The format of the show gives very little room for maneuver. In Salman, Sony has a winner but during weekends ahead the quality of the questions and participants will determine the fate of the show more than Salman Khan.

Hosts with the most


Salman Khan's parents are pretty pleased with their son's debut on television. Of course, long before the telecast on Friday, they'd been privileged to watch the first episode. "A lot depends on the participants," mulled Salim Khan. "The Maharashtrian lady in the first episode was fiery like Lalita Pawar, superbly entertaining. How the show evolves will depend on the kind of contestants they get in further episodes. You need outgoing participants who'll contribute to the show."

That hosting the show, 10 Ka Dum, is a big deal for Salman Khan is obvious since the stakes are high (a Rs 1.5 crore fee per episode is the buzz) and, more than justifying his take-home income, his star power and reputation too are on the line. It's not just Salman himself but also his entire family, especially his parents, who are anxious that he pull off this one like Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan did, in the recent past.

Salim sounded relieved when he stated, "I was very happy with the first episode, I was satisfied that Salman was doing the right thing by hosting this show. He's got a certain charm that connects with the viewer." Just what a star dad would say, right? But Salim has an indisputable point to make when he says, "If you watch Salman closely, you'll see that unlike all the others who've come in by copying Dilip Kumar or Dev Anand or some other senior star, he has always been an original. Salman has never copied any other acto. Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan tried to be like Dilip Kumar but Salman never did that. He is what he is and that's what he tells his directors too.

Big-time actors going on to TV has become such a booming business that the first telecast is almost like a film premiere. If the Bachchans had their red carpet opening of Sarkar Raj in Bangkok, the Panvel farmhouse was the venue for the Salman Khan family to converge and watch 10 Ka Dum on Friday night. "And, after celebrating on the 6th, we'll all be too drunk on the 7th to do anything else," grinned dad Salim Khan. "We'll be back in Mumbai on the 8th."

Salman Khan 's winning ways on Sony T.V. Game Show

Salman Khan has made a winning debut as the host of the new reality game show on Sony T.V. called as Dus ka Dum.


Salman Khan 's winning ways on Sony T.V. Game Show

Salman Khan has made a winning debut as the host of the new reality game show on Sony T.V. called as Dus ka Dum.

salman khan

Dus Ka Dum is remarkable not only for its host Salman Khan but also for the highest prize money on a T.V. reality show , Rs 10 crore as well as its positioning in the space left empty by the hugely lucrative IPL matches on the same channel.

Salman's debut has been much appreciated by viewers and critics. He has been admired for his earthy humor, confidence and ability to charm.

The choice of contestants for the opening episode was interesting and is probably indicative of a desire to connect with the masses, something Salman does spontaneously.
Even more interesting was the manner in which Salman Khan let the contestants do most of the talking and hog the cameras. He didn't just let them have their say, he baited them to do so with well timed questions.
The Bollywood superstar says that the game show is all about the way Indians think. The participants need to guess the way most other people in India would have guessed, and if your guess is right you can go all the way to win Rs 100 million.
Salman's show is being seen as one of the biggest threat to Shah Rukh Khan's Paanchvi Paas se Tez, that is being aired on Star TV.

With Dus Ka Dum, Salman Khan is stepping into the shoes of fellow thespians Amithabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan.

Amithabh Bachchan set the trend with Kaun Banega Karodpathi on Star T.V. which later was taken up by Shah Rukh Khan.

Now Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan and family and Salman Khan have jumped into the band wagon.

Salman has made a good beginning but the show needs more than his charm to keep up the TRP's in the coming weekends.

Sallu has the dum
Author: Mid-Day Readers

It is strange that some people have not liked Salman Khan's 10 Ka Dum. It is Sallu's first programme and so, it will take a little time for him to woo the audience.

Even Shah Rukh Khan was written off when he anchored KBC. All actors are not gifted with natural talent to host a reality show like Amitabh Bachchan.

Not a bore

Salman may not have a strong command over the language. But he kept the audience entertained.

Review:10 Ka Dum: Salman's promising first steps
Sukanya Verma
June 09, 2008 11:54 IST

Salman interacts with one of the contestants on the show.

There are two ways of looking at it. Celebrities are no longer an inaccessible lot. Or you could say they are pretty much everywhere nowadays. Whatever your feelings may be, there is no stopping to big screen stars jumping onto the small screen bandwagon -- be it as hosts or judges.

Having said that, Kaun Banega Crorepati starring Amitabh Bachchan [Images], has unofficially assumed its position as a bar to measure the success of other star-hosted game shows, owing to its overwhelming following while others fail/hope to follow suit.

Even as Shah Rukh Khan [Images] tries to revive the sagging ratings of his hugely publicised, Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain? (which many believe suffered from the previously on Indian Premiere League matches), his co-star in Karan Arjun and Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam -- Salman Khan [Images] makes a dapper debut on the idiot box.

Image Image

The desi version of Drew Carey-helmed Power of 10 on CBS is now Sony TV's 10 Ka Dum. All it requires of its participant is to be a good guesser and answer five questions (read guess percentages) for Rs 10,000, Rs 1 lakh, Rs 10 lakh, Rs 1 crore each, leading up to the prize sum of Rs 10 crore. It's amusing to watch Salman at his earnest (need we add well-dressed) best as he spells out the rules of the game.

Of course, he's Salman Khan at the end of the day, and so you get the famously mercurial star shift his body language, accent and reflexes from time to time. His quips range from cheeky -- ''Aloo aur Indians har jagah hain (Indians and potatoes are to be found everywhere)' to cheesy 'Mere father ne ek saand paida kiya hai. Log apni apni guy bachayein (My father has produced a bull. All you people out there, save your cows).' For starters, he's doing alright.

There's nothing remotely educational about the show. The questions range from What per cent of Indians read newspaper in the toilet every morning or to the percentage of Indians who spent the night sleeping on their wedding night? The final conjecture is drawn on the basis of a survey done earlier. If the participant's answer is closest to the masses-drawn percentage, he/she scores.

Stastical ambiguity aside, here's what the first two episodes aired on June 6-7 had to offer. In the opening episode, which was definitely lot more fun than the second, we have an Akshata 'vivacity personified' Tiwarekar and Vamsika 'Salman-struck' Ghai vying for the hot seat. After a few hugs and professing undying love for the actor, the newly-married lady makes a series of bad guesses and leaves the stage for Akshata. The latter is only too happy to infuse the show with, unfamiliar to us but (probably) characteristic to her, brand of enthusiasm. She laughs. She jokes. She proclaims. She prods. She dances. She even manages to corner Salman and turn him a shade of beetroot. Thanks to her really, both the show and Salman flow effortlessly through the first day.

Day 2 is marred by contrived participants. Truth be told, even if stars draw initial attention to any show, the real key to make them click lies with the players. It is their honesty, timing and genuineness, the programme relies on.

After Akshata's booming liveliness, the not-so-much-fun Nandini Biswas and Uttkarsh Marwah play to win. Marwah gets out while the nose-ringed Biswas stays on. She loses early and makes for the exit but not before presenting Salman a bed sheet printed with his picture. Khan is partly flattered, partly confused and mostly plays it down. 'I don't want to develop a habit of these things,' he says, quickly adding, 'folding sheets with you, that is.'

Up next, Badadeeda (translated as big-eyed, is what Salman's Indore-based relatives fondly nick-named him in childhood, he recalls during the show) introduces Jaunpur's Kamal Asif and Muzzafarnagar's 'celebrity' kabaddi player, Bawbin Kumar. And can this guy talk? The man goes on and on about his hu tu tu-themed achievements and generally mistakes the show for an audition of Bunty Aur Babli [Images]. Poor Asif stands no chance. The game ends at Bawbin still playing (and babbling).

It's impossible (and too early) to tell what the TRPs will predict going by the bizarre economics of success in television entertainment. If you are a die-hard Salman Khan fan, 10 Ka Dum is a God-sent opportunity to hang out with the star every weekend. If not, you are better off guessing the percentage of people (like yourself) who will not watch the show.

Salman fails TV debut

Author: Shaheen Parkar Date: 07 Jun 2008

Game show hosted by Salman Khan low on fire power

10 Ka Dum **1/2
Host: Salman Khan
Channel: Sony
Producer: Siddhartha Basu

WHAT'S IT ABOUT: Based on the American game show host Drew Carey's Power of 10 on CBS, contestants are asked questions on a variety of issues. Participants have to predict how a cross-section of the population surveyed, responded to the question as a percentage.

WHAT'S HOT: You can win lakhs by guessing mere percentage figures. You don't have to scratch your brains or read GK books cover to cover. And there's Salman... at least he is mouthing lines sans his Bandra Bandstand meets Beverly Hills accent. Sallu also makes the contestant ease up by going down to their level.

WHAT'S NOT: Salman is synonymous as Prem of the silver screen or for his shirtless acts and wisecracks. Seeing him as an anchor appears funny.

He has to thank the livewire first contestant, Worli resident Akshata Tiwarekar, who added a spark to the show — she appeared more comfy. Sallu is not known for his command over the language like Big B or for his eloquence like SRK.

So he appears extremely conscious of his new act.

WHAT'S THAT? Akshata's son was ironically called Abhishek. Ouch! And Sallu had to wish Abhishek all the best for the future. Akshata's son is an aspiring cricketer and Salman hoped that he would be even better than Sachin Tendulkar — all this without batting an eyelid! Hopefully, no contestant has a daughter called Aishwarya! :shocked: Also, formatted desi versions of game shows are exact replicas of the original. So what were those hideous pillars doing as part of the sets? They appeared to have been borrowed from Sallu's Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam days. Compared to Basu's KBC sets, 10 Ka Dum appeared straight out of a B grade flick. And David Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Arbaaz Khan saying the show is a hit? Already! What about those magical TRPs, which every channel pores upon?

WHAT TO DO: Watch it only for the luck of the contestants who can win up to Rs 10 crore by simply guessing percentage figures. There's also one question for those watching the show to reply via SMS and win. And if you are a diehard Sallu fan (and there are quite a lot out there), put on your blinkers and say Sallu can do no wrong.

Salman breaks ice with Dum!

09 Jun, 2008 04:00 am ISTlRenuka Vyavahare/INDIATIMES MOVIES

You have seen Salman Khan, the star. Now meet the real Salman Khan who ruled the Dus Ka Dum stage .

Whistles filled the air. Female fans could not help but only profess their admiration saying 'He's so cute' and then there was a thunderous applause just as Salman Khan entered, dressed in a smashing black suit and trousers. The day marked his first TV appearance as the host of Sony's Dus Ka Dum!

As for those who missed out on watching the first episode of the show, here's a quick piece of information. Dus Ka Dum is based on the international show Power of 10, already a hit in countries such as Australia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece and Russia. Five simple questions about what a cross section of Indians think. The answer has to match with the already polled answers and if it matches, you could walk away with Rs.10 crore! The journey to 10 crore is through 5 questions! Your answers need to get more accurate with each step. Unlike other game shows, Dus Ka Dum does not require acute general knowledge but just common sense and insight into how the rest of India thinks!

Now coming back to our high profile host he looked as handsome as ever and went all out to make the final contestant (who happened to be a Maharashtrian lady) super comfortable as questioning session started. Within no time their fun chemistry became the highlight of the show! Salman interacted with the lady in his yankee Marathi, giving the audiences their share of fun moments and also danced and sang whenever the lady requested him to! Otherwise known as pricey, Sallu didn't shy away from hugging his contestant and giving her courage just so that she can proceed comfortably! When a question of anti inter-caste marriage rose in the programme, Salman instantly gave his family's example of being Cosmopolitan by saying, "My father is a Muslim, mother a Maharashtrian, brother Sohail is married to a Punjabi, Arbaaz to a Punjabi Catholic, I believe in people and not their caste or religion." His answer pleased his admirers and finally showed them the real Salman, so much different than the one they had read and heard of!

Salman's show is bound to enthral the audiences only because of the fact that they'll get to see Salman, the person, and not Salman the star! His funny antics, wit, tease is already a hit amongst his friends and family but now even an ordinary person can get a dose of it through the show!

Amrita Arora too loved watching the show and said, "Salman was super! He is very real and has a super connection with the people. He is not pretentious and this is what makes him at complete ease with his audiences." Amrita's sister and Sallu's sister-in-law Malaika Arora added, "Salman was absolutely fabulous and connected very well with the audiences."

Salman has always enjoyed a massive fan following till date, owing to his films. Now, with Dus Ka Dum , we are sure he'll conquer all those who've not been fond of him too

Indiatimes verdict? - A full ten star rating for Sallu's tv debut! SRK, Akshay... guys you better watch out!

Can film stars and TV stars switch medium and still remain superstars?

Comment :Pankaj Kumar Sinha

Salman Khan 'Dus ka Dum' can prove a turning point
Friday, June 6, 2008

Salman Khan, the most controversial child of bollywood or the most ever handsome actor in India has seen success or failures of all levels. His movies have been big blockbusters and some have been also big flops but he has risen to stardom to superstardom to rockstar and could rise to megastardom with his telly show 'Dus ka Dum' in Sony Television. This telly show could be the turning point of his career, where he could win over so many fans and could earn many more fans. Salman Khan has got a chance to open up with his fans. Media has always made him the scapegoat but now Salman can clear his tarnished image. For me, Salman Khan is very good human being. For his NGO 'Being Human', Salman Khan has been taking lot of movies left and right and he is also taken this show, all for a good cause. He is a true ambassador for humanity and I believe, he deserves Padma Shri Award by Indian government for his Charity Work and this makes him a real hero of the society.

I saw the first episode of 'Dus ka Dum' and it impresses me a lot and was above my expectations. I always have my reservations on Salman Khan for anchoring a show because i feel, he is not that spontaneous but he has proved me wrong. You can feel the charisma of Salman Khan on the show. Intially he was nervous and It does happen with everybody when you do something new. But slowly, he was doing well but i also say, there is lot of scope for improvement as an anchor. This will also help him in his acting career. This telly show will help him making more fans then ever. Salman Khan was intelligent and cheeky enough not to answer personal questions related to his love life. He was very friendly in the show. But what i did not like was little bit of acting? I feel, anchors need to be more restrained and don't need to go over the top. Salman Khan is like a host and the participants are like guests. The duty of the host is to make guests comfortable. The format of the show is also interesting. The questions have certain touch of humour in it. You will come to know what 'Aam Aadmi' thinks. I truely believe that Salman Khan is a right anchor for the show. He is a masses actor. I will end with three cheers for the show 'Dus ka Show' and wish lot of success to superstar Salman Khan.
