Default 2021-2022 Bengali TV Show - Dadagiri Season 9 Unlimited Latest Updates, All Episodes

Latest Update:
  • Today Episode:
  • The 9th season of ‘Dadagiri Unlimited’ came to an end after a gala finale. It was a star-studded affair, attended by many eminent personalities from Tollywood.
  • Dona Ganguly also graced the show as a special guest. With her charm, grace, and eloquence, she simply won the hearts of the Bengali audience just like the former Indian skipper does. The ace dancer also shook a leg with Prosenjit Chatterjee, Ditipriya Roy, and the host on a folk song and later, left the audience awestruck with her sizzling chemistry shared with Sourav to romantic Bollywood number ‘Aakhon Mein Teri’.
  • Sourav is equally eloquent on the cricket field and in front of the camera. His partnership with his fellow batsman on the crease is remembered by cricket lovers. And his ‘partnership’ with his better half on Dadagiri’s stage is also worth a mention. Mr. and Mrs. Ganguly’s chemistry, compatibility, and sweet conversation simply stole the show.
  • Here are a few moments from finale night.
    The viewers enjoyed how Sourav and Dona kept pulling each other's legs. When the host invited Dona to the stage to help the participants in a particular round and asked whether his performance was up to the mark, the latter replied ‘Fatafati’ and then added, “He purposefully asked me this question so that I heap praise and he enjoys it.” Sourav had a shy smile on his face.

    Later, during another question, which was based on food, an audio-visual capsule was shown to the contestant and he was asked to name that particular delicacy. After contestant Garga, a professor, who was representing Kolkata, answered the question, host Sourav said, “Dona prepares this dish quite often and it tastes really good.” To this, Mrs. Ganguly quickly replied, “There is no use cooking since you don’t eat meat these days.” Sourav, who is famous for his eloquence, hinted it is just another ‘excuse’ by Dona.

    In a question on ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’, Mampi, representing Bankura district, was asked to tell the names of the protagonists. With Dona’s help, the participant could answer Kajol’s screen name ‘Simran’ correctly. But initially, neither Dona nor Mampi could remember Shah Rukh Khan’s screen name in the Bollywood blockbuster. Seeing Dona, trying to remember the particular name, Sourav first asked whether she watched the movie. Dona said a yes. After a few moments, when she remembered the correct name and told Mampi to answer the question, Sourav said, “I thought, Dona is forgetting my name too.” He hinted at his nickname Maharaj. Dona was quick and witty enough to remind him that Shah Rukh’s name in the movie was ‘Raj’ and his name is ‘Maharaj’. Sourav replied, “There is Maha before Raj,” and smiled. Everyone enjoyed the moment as the couple pulled each other’s legs.

    Interestingly, Dona revealed how he used to iron Sourav’s jersey prior to his cricket match, pack his bags before tournaments and still does before his cricket commentary. She left the audience in splits when she thanked team ‘Dadagiri’ and the person from the costume department who does her job now.

    As a special tribute to Sourav and Dona, clippings from different news articles on them were shown. She was quite overwhelmed by the gesture and the effort made by the research team. In a particular article, Dona’s expectation from her prospective groom was mentioned. In the article, Dona had mentioned different qualities that she prefers to see in her dream man. A witty Sourav quickly opined that Dona can have such a man only in ‘Kumortuli’ (where artisans make clay idols). Striking an over-boundary, Dona replied, “You have all these qualities already.” The contestant and the audience couldn’t stop cheering. Another instance was when an audio visual capsule mentioned how Sourav gave a special gift to his better-half on their wedding day. While the question brought a smile on Dona’s face, Sourav was trying to remember the gift. It was later revealed that Sourav got a gold coin for his performance in a match and got it moulded as a locket in a gold chain. It was his special gift to his newlywed wife. Giving Sourav a stiff competition in terms of wittiness and eloquence, Dona promptly replied, “It’s obvious he won’t remember it. We have been married for 25 years and he doesn’t give anything these days.”

    Well, Dona proved that, just like Maharaj, she, too, knows how to charm her way into audiences’ hearts.
  • After a successful run, Bengali TV’s one of the most favourite shows ‘Dadagiri Unlimited Season 9’, is ready for its grand finale. The ninth season of the show, hosted by none other than the former captain of Indian Cricket Team Sourav Ganguly, had a spectacular journey.

Format, Rounds:
  • Selection Round,Six contestants are selected in this round. This round was dropped in later seasons.
  • Toss Round, Six selected contestants from 23 districts of West Bengal and a contestant representing Team India participate in this round. Six clues are given for a single answer, from which the participants have to guess the answer. From season 4, a seventh clue had been included, which was presented after the participants finalized their guess in the sixth clue. The participants' 'runs' are deducted if their guess is wrong, while they are awarded points if their guess is correct. The number of runs awarded or deducted depends on the number of clues the contestant used to finalize his/her guess. In the later seasons, this round has got tougher with the clue being vague and the answers unexpected. In season 8, participants need to write their guesses from the first clue but without telling anyone, which is revealed at the end before announcing the seventh clue i.e., the answer.
  • Powerplay Round,All six contestants play this round. Random questions of nine people are selected to ask the contestants. If they are able to answer without taking options, they get 12 runs. They can also select from questions valued two, four or six runs if they wish. A two-run question includes two options, a four-run question has three options, while a six-run question has four options.
  • If any other contestant thinks that the contestant's answer is wrong, he/she can challenge that particular contestant, receiving double runs if the answer is correct, but losing double runs if the answer is wrong. One contestant is eliminated at the end of this round.This round was renamed as Bouncer Round in season 7.
  • Cover Drive Round,Here, the contestants are given some audio-visual questions to answer. Questions range from one to four runs (score). The contestants are questioned, without options, on either a video or an audio clip, depending on their choice. The help and challenge options are also available here. This round is quite similar to the Power Play round; only the question pattern is different.
  • Googly/Doosra Round, The Googly and Doosra round is quite similar to the type of bowling in cricket it is named after. As the bowler surprises the batsman with such a delivery, the contestants are also baffled by riddles or rebus puzzles. This is perhaps the hardest round in the game, but certainly the most enjoyable. Each contestant can choose from googly and doosra. As a doosra question is more difficult, a contestant gets 12 points for the right answer and minus 12 points for the wrong answer. A googly question has six points. A contestant gets six points for the right answer and minus six points for the wrong answer. Others cannot challenge the contestant (who is asked the question) in this tricky round.
  • Slog Over Round,This round was called Full Toss Round in season 7. The remaining three contestants are asked 12 questions. Previously (before season 5) the number of questions was 18. The fastest one to press the buzzer after the question is asked gets to answer the particular question. One who manages to answer consecutive three questions correctly gets a 'free hit' which means that there will be no negative marking for him in the question. Questions that all the contestants have failed to answer are asked to the Runners' Bench at random. One contestant is eliminated.
  • Bapi Bari Jaa,The remaining duo is head-to-head in this final obstacle to victory. The contestants are told to choose from six subjects alternatively, from which they will be asked questions. Similar to the Bouncer round, one can challenge the other. If they decide to challenge in this round, their answers are kept unknown to each other until they have finalized them.
The contestant who has scored more runs wins the game.
In season 3 'Bapi Bari Jaa' round was renamed as 'Check Mate' round, in season 4 it was again named as 'Bapi Bari Jaa'.

TRP, Reviews:
  • The ninth season of non-fiction show ‘Dadagiri Unlimited’, hosted by none other than Dada Sourav Ganguly, has started showing its magic on the TRP charts. ‘Dadagiri Unlimited Season 9’, which is aired on the weekends, has outshined the daily soaps that are being aired 7 days a week in terms of TRP. Dada simply ruled the TRP charts and clean bowled all other shows with his googlies. The show is in the second position as far as TRP goes.
  • It enjoys a huge fanbase despite running all these years. Thanks to Sourav’s witty comments, eloquence and his charm, Dadagiri truly rules Bengali television and keeps scoring well on the TRP charts. Despite being aired in the weekends, the show outshines all other popular daily soaps in terms of TRPs.
