Oru Nimisham - TV show experience

Despite its humble beginnings, the Flowers TV Channel has a done a note-worthy job in arresting the attention of the Malayalee audience thanks to its vibrant and colorful shows hosted by some of the best comparers that Kerala has ever produced. One such program which makes the viewers to grip  the edge of their seats till the very end is of course “Oru Nimisham” or “Just a Minute” hosted by all-time favorite, Mr. Sreekandan Nair. When today’s world is punctuated with a whole bunch of cliché reality shows, this program is truly unique in every way. It aims to find the best orators of the land and thus serves as the ultimate test for their command over the Malayalam language. Given a minute to speak, the candidate is required to adhere to five well-framed rules. It includes prohibition to quote people, to repeat the word and even to pause. The speech must be delivered flawlessly with speed and accuracy and only in Malayalam. With six participants going neck-to-neck in each episode, a winner is declared at the end of each show. Arguments are fired like bullets and the stage becomes more like a battlefield. Hence it is little wonder that since its inception in June, the viewership has increased by leaps and bounds.

The first round, held within the premises, featured a video test wherein the candidates were asked to speak on a topic for one-minute abiding by the rules. Then of course, the most awaited phase was to feature on the silver screen. It is commendable to note that three Rajagirians viz. Meera, Christy and Sarig, could make it to this prestigious list from amongst the hundreds who had participated.

Sharing her experience, Meera was in high spirits and full of energy to have been featured on the show. She began by stating her initial fears of bracing through given her English background and time constraints for preparation. On the stage, she spoke her heart out brimming with passion that won her the praise and applause not only of the audience but also of the entire crew together with Sreenkandan Nair. She was also amused by the fame and recognition that she got owing to her performance and spoke about how people recognized her on streets as well. Thus, this challenging role proved to be a blessing in disguise with the multitude of proposals that she received following the show to compare for several TV programs. All in all, the entire experience was enjoyable and fulfilled her passion to become a journalist, although in a different manner.
