Bindass hunts for India’s best laughter kings through ‘Idea Hass Ley India Comedy Gang War’

Bindass, UTV’s 360-degree youth entertainment brand, has launched a five-city hunt for a gang of comedians through its new show ‘Idea Hass Ley India Comedy Gang War’. The hour-long show went on air on January 31, 2008 and is being aired at 10. The grand finale will be aired on March 6, 2008. The five cities covered are Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Lucknow. The winning gang of comedians will get to star in a comedy film made by UTV.

The top team from each city would be groomed by noted television personality Roshan Abbas. In addition to this, all the five gangs have city-specific anthems, which capture the uniqueness of their city. The teams will have to spice up their act in an attempt to impress the Bindass judging duo of Shekhar Suman and Makrand Deshpande. The Bindass twosome of Mantra and Anirudh will host the series. The Monday-Wednesday episodes of ‘Idea Hass Ley India’ would have behind the scenes elements of the comedy gangs.

An official communiqué stated, “‘Idea Hass Ley India’ is a topical, young, energetic, and irreverent show. The show is driven by current events and has topical satirical content, derived from current national and international events which range from sports, politics, Bollywood, personalities, corruption etcetera. It is the show about young India’s take on what is happening around.”

The entire series will see two rounds – ‘Shoot at Site’ and ‘Jaldi Jugaad’ – being contested in each episode and will have different themes in every episode. For the ‘Shoot at Site’ round, the gangs would be allotted time to prepare the skit, however, ‘Jaldi Jugaad’ would involve on-the-spot performances.

The second and third weeks will see the elimination of one gang per episode. The final three gangs would perform in the remaining three weeks and be judged by audience votes and judges’ points.
