Vijay TV to cash in on penchant for Tamil with ‘Tamil Pechu Engal Muchu’

After Big FM, Vijay TV is out to capture the passion for Tamil language among the people of Tamil Nadu in its new shown ‘Tamil Pechu Engal Muchu’. The show, which would go on air from March 2 on Sundays at 9 am, aims to find the best orator in Tamil language.

The channel had conducted an intensive statewide hunt for the most competent Tamil orators spanning Salem, Coimbatore, Madurai, Trichy, Thirunelveli and Chennai. From these six zones, over 200 orators were shortlisted, who were then put to task at various levels of competition. Post elimination, Vijay TV has chosen 30 final contestants, who would be put to test in several rounds varying from story narration, poetry recital, debate and elocution during the course of the show.

Renowned Tamil scholars like ‘Thamizh Kadal’ Nellai Kannan and Arivumathi would form the jury panel. The winner of the contest would be crowned the best Tamil orator of Tamil Nadu. He/she would also get to take home a prize money of Rs 5 lakh.

Describing ‘Tamil Pechu Engal Moochu’ as a dark horse, K Sriram, Head of Vijay TV, said, “The programme is our way of thanking and respecting our language, Tamil, and the great scholars who were and are associated with it. This programme in a small way would promote the art of speaking in good Tamil.”

“Tamil is not just a language, but a way of life here,” Sriram added.
