Why don't you guys have a race ? Something like TG. You guys can split 2 Teams of 2 anchors. One pair takes a train and the other pair drives down. You know, a drive from Bombay to Delhi or something similar. That should be fun.

I think the repeat telecast timings for sunday were posted wrong.
When can we view it again? If there is no other telecast can you upload it on youtube?

Or sign something with Rajshri.com - they already host a huge range of Indian tv shows and movies including NDTV's car and bike show legally.

I too saw the show at 1230 hours.

Congratulations to Team Overdrive on a show well done. I hope that the show touches new heights in Indian Auto Journalism.

OT: Shreen Bhaan is HOT

Hello all,

Sorry for the mix up in the timings, looks like the show goes on air four times a week now- instead of three.

So, now the schedule stands at:

Tuesday- 6.30 PM
Saturday- 1.00 PM and 8.30 PM
Sunday- 12.30 PM


For all those who couldn't catch it, we'll try to procure a copy and put it up on youtube/ torrents or something.

Keep the thoughts and suggestions coming.

Regards,

Team OD.

Welcome aboard Team_OD,
I haven't seen the show yet, but first of all congratulations on your new show.
It's commendable that you are taking online forums like this seriously, and understand that you could get some credible feedback over here, again this shows that you are seriously looking to reach the benchmarks you have set (i.e TG and 5G) well, best of luck!
  • Yes, don't ape anyone, just be original.
  • Remember that you broadcast on a business news channel, so the bottom half of the screen is filled with news and stock tickers, so try to use whatever the screen space you get to the fullest (i hated the auto show for that, they liked to show captions above the tickers for the entire length of the show, so they would effectively hide 60% of the screen)
Regards
IMP.

Thanks Team-OD. It would be great if you can put the episode in You Tube.

I will be catching the show either on Saturday or Sunday.

All the Best!!

To give a frank opinion here - I did not like the show much - in the manner it was presented .It was kind of boring did not have that zeal that the previous autocar show had .
But again this is my opinion .Maybe with time and experience it would turn out better .
I will keep watching though.

Just my humble thoughts:

01. The anchor has no clue about cars (Shireen or something)

02. The anchor should be provided with a comfortable chair next time. Those high heels are not meant for scratching.

03. The 4 journalists (hope I got the number correct) who test drove various cars, lack track skills. Cornering isn't their cup of tea. They were struggling to maintain the racing line.

04. The show needs a professional race driver (we have plenty), who could come out with some decent lap times.

05. The entire lap for every single car should be shown, so that we could see how each car behaves around the same corners.

06. While covering the cars on track, the camera focus was heavily biased towards the cars. This made it hard to figure out the circuit.

07. I've always found the "what car/bike to buy" section very dumb. Team-bhp hai na? Not to mention the various auto magazines.

However the show is a different approach to the conventional auto shows on Indian TV. Let us see how they proceed in the future. It is too early to rate I guess.

Thank you,Sushanth. I didn't do a report since people would think Im biased or hate OD.

Copying Top Gear is not a bad thing at all. But, doing it in a very bad way is bad.
This show looked like wannabe Top Gear with three guys trying to imitate Clarkson,Hammond and May.
These guys need atleast a hundred hours on circuit driving. I thought Auto Journos could drive really well until I saw the show.

I'll anyways,as an enthusiast, give the benefit of doubt and chance to better themselves.
