Asatha Povathu Yaaru – Synopsis

Sharp 10pm, every Saturdays on channel Sun TV (ASTRO). This is what most of the indians would turn to, albeit it clashes with other programmes such as soccer, mega serials, news and so forth! Candidly, this is the only program that I’m enjoying to the max, watching it with full of laughters and joy! To those who doesn’t own ASTRO, well, you could watch the show(s) online at sites such as Youtube.com and TubeTamil.com. You could even download the episodes and save them into your computer so that you could enjoy watching them over and over again whenever you want, without the need of going online! Doing a simple Google search could lead you to thousand of sites where you could download those episodes!

Initially, “Kalakka Povathu Yaaru (KPY)” was the predecessor of “Asatha Povathu Yaaru (APY)” as it was first aired in Vijay TV, with Mathan Bob and Chinni Jayanth as the judges and Uma Riyaz as the host. In KPY, there would be preliminary rounds, quarter finals, semi finals and finals. The final champion would be selected and thus, would be awarded. Then, from nowhere, came Pandiyarajan and Sadagopan Ramesh (I bet 90% of Malaysian Indians would not have known who the hell he is!) as the next set of judges and Swarnamalya being the ‘temporary’ host.

It seems that a guy named Rajkumar was the person who initiated the programme at Vijay TV at first, and later hopped to Sun TV for somewhat reason and refurbished the programme, by calling it “Asatha Povathu Yaaru”. To date, he never appeared nor has been introduced in that programme.

In APY, the judges are ChittiBabu and Mathan Bob and Maheswari as the host (succeeding her predecessor, Sandhya). Every week, one cinema celebrity would be invited to be the honorary chief judge and he (So far, no ‘she’!) would be the one who would decide the “Comedy King” for that particular week.

Nearly all the participants are very very talented and all of them deserve to be praised! Two of the utmost feast would be Mimicry and Jokes! Participants such as Madurai Muthu and Erode Mahesh are very well-known for their non-stop jokes while Michael Augustine and Kovai Guna are very well known for their talent in mimicking other voices, targeting film stars as their hot-spots!

I would give this show a FIVE STAR RATING and I gotta say, I love it!!

  7. I used to like dis programme a lot when there used to be a spontaneous performances by participants whereby the judges themselves will pick a topic according to the genre the participants have chosen there n there. I will watch in awe and admiration how they could come up with such brilliant ideas in just 10 seconds. They should bring back that. Nowadays, they come pre-prepared. Nevertheless……they ROCK!!

  10. Dear Mr Rajkumar,
    Though your Asathapovathu yaaru is really a worth seeing, nowadays few artists are spoiling same by cutting vulgar jokes and also the small boys are also doing same. Please see that this is not repeated so that this wonderful programme is not spoiled by some body.
    This is my humble appeal as our tamil culture is of more value and let us not do any harm to blemish same.
    With regards,
    Yours sincerely,

  13. Dear Mr Rajkumar,
    Though your show is very fine, please allow only adults for the show and not small boys as the standup comedy they perform are not at all worthy and they remain as a blemish to your shows.
    Kindly see that from next episode these boys are not seen in the show.
    Thank you,
    Sincerely yours,
    NE Appasamy
