Gameplay format

Round :1 Group la Dupe

The first round is called Group la Dupe (English : Find the odd one out).

There are three people in front of the participants, who are dressed as belonging to particular profession (e.g. tailors, dancers, craftsmen etc.) of which two actually practice the said profession, whereas the third has been trained by one of the other professionals in the show.

The anchor will give them three clues.

First, the participants are given 15 seconds to lock a guess as to who the impostor is.

They have to press the buzzer as fast as possible.

The fastest to sound the buzzer gets to lock their choice on who the imposter actually is and the other participants can only choose a person who hasn't been chosen.

So, the first one gets three choices, the second two and the last one none.

After this, each professional gives a short performance relating to his profession (e.g. Dancers perform a small dance).

After the performances, the participants are then given the option of changing their initial choice at a cost of a 100 points.

Once the participants have changed their options, if they wish to, the impostor is revealed.

Points are deducted for the participants who guessed wrong, whereas the right guesser’s points are left untouched.

Round 2: Siricha Pochu

The second round is called Siricha Pochu (English : You Laugh, You Lose).

This round is arguably the USP of the show.

The participants are shown a stand up comedy performance from either one or a group of the show’s comedians.

During the performance, the participants lose points if they laugh or smile.

The participants are instructed to only look at the performance without covering their mouths.

The points are once again deducted in a cumulative fashion based on the order of participants who laughed.

Some of the popular comedians who star in this round include Robo Shankar, Vadivel Balaji, Ramar,Thangadurai, Singapore Deepan, Vignesh Karthick, Prabu, Amudhavanan, Jeyachandran, Diwakar, George, Pazhani Pattalam and Nanjil Vijayan. The former four are especially considered expert comedians who excel in mimicry and are often able to make all three participants laugh in the episode.

Round 3: Maathi Yosi

The third round is called Maathi Yosi (English :Think Differently).

In this round, each participant is called in order of who pressed the buzzer first in the first round, Groupla Dupe, to have a conversation with the host, where the host asks questions to them.

During the conversation, the participant has to provide a completely unrelated answer to each question posed by the host.

If the participant answers the question with a related answer,give the same answer thrice, ask questions to the host or take more than two seconds to answer, they are considered out.

Again, the points are deducted on a cumulative basis, depending on the time taken for the participant to become out.
