Wow, congrats and wish you the best. Do you already know the programme time-slot?

Sure it' going to be great. The programme name pointed towards BMW for a sec, but the brilliant trailer sorted it out

Hope you will focus on car and its aspects, rather than the current crop of Malayalam channel auto shows focusing on the presenter and his sunglasses

Also, it would be great to have english subtitles for those who dont understand the language.

Just watched the show. Hani, I enjoyed every moment of it, and I could see you putting the Carneol Red ML 320 CDI through its paces.

The shot where it flies over a rough stone was awesome. Well shot!
Also, good review of the Cuprit brown E 350.

Also, it was simple, easy to understand and precise, what we wanted and expect from you.
I asked my dad to watch it (he perfectly understands Malayalam) and he also gave a thumbs up!

I request you to kindly include English subtitles for me to understand and hope to see you aggressively test driving many other high end cars in upcoming shows

regards

Ok guys, just saw the show. Hani just demolished it with the ML320cdi and E350. His driving skills are very well portrayed in the ML drive. And his 'Koyikkoden' accent mallu is really a diverse experience Some may take time to sync, i've alredy done that during our long term friendship. So No probs here.

I expected a Merc in the show launch but as some tagline say "Umeed se dugna" there were two.

And, really cute thing is he incorporated his bro(not own) in the show(Who is reputed to be the biggest mammootty fan alive).

Suggestions -
- More slots to incorporate some off-beat entertaining stuff than couple of drives.
- If time is a problem, you can reduce the td into one car per episode and add the spice in the rest.
- Celebrity cars.(Catches lots of attention, and i think you wont have a problem finding one).
- International updates.
- Q&A section.
- A preview of the next weeks episode in the end. etc.

Will keep posted as it comes.

Anyways, good kick start ! The ML drive did the job !

+1.
This is one good suggestion. The first thing I look for in an auto mag/show is celebrity cars!

To start off the promo itself is salivating in anticipation of things that will be on offer.sadly missed the show this week, the webisode is not up yet on youtube?
I definitely think that the show will standout out among the moribund mallu shows that focus only on aesthetics of car over and over again with an accompanying theme music(so lame).And not to speak of a certain anchor on the NDTV car and bike show who spends 10 mins talking on the lines and headlamps of a car and the rest of technical stuff in 2 mins.so hats off to starting a dedicated show for an enthusiast.
Just one suggestion though, for the sake of a wider audience why not think of having car comparos with all your experience,considering the recent spate of small/midsize launches.none of the mallu channels offer that on their show as far as i know.
All the best

I am sure that you with so much wealth of information on cars especially Mercs can surely make every show a success. Have you got a plan to do a show on your G ??? It would make a great episode. Maybe put the whole thing (the intitial test drive, the buying experience, the drive back home, the modifications, the painting and the end result) as a Fly Wheel special!!!!
Thank you so much dude! Ofcource I'll post the video on you tube & will post it here as well! But channel want me to wait till tommorow before posting!

Ya, I'll defenetly cover my G, but not on initial issues!

Thanks friend! I'll try my best to meet your expectation if I have all of your support by pointing out my mistakes!

Thank you buddy, glad to hear from you that you saw it from Delhi. How come your dad know Malayalam? Also try to point out your critic as well !

Regarding English subtitle (Shan & Sid), channel doesn't allow to put it as its regional channel. I've had a word earlier! But plan to introduce a english dubbed version!
