(Makkal TV, Saturdays, 7.30 p.m.)
The programme discusses various political issues with a touch of wit and sarcasm. It takes a comical dig at politicians suffering from selective amnesia and their hyper-centric activities besides focussing on civic and social issues.
The episode is formatted as a court scene, with a judge and a look alike of the person who is the subject of the day’s mockery. With awkward questions from the judge and funny replies from the main character, each episode attempts to keep the viewers in splits.
