The only program worth watching at GEO Super channel is “Bolain Kya Baat Hai”. This program deals with all sports related controversial issues. This program normally consists of a host and one or two guests, with live calls, short text messages and emails coming from all over the country.
As far as I know, the program is popular. One proof of this is the irritating galore of advertisements during it. Nonetheless, the program is interesting and intriguing enough to hold the attention. The program is supposed to be discussing all sports, but naturally, the program becomes diamond whenever it discusses cricket.
In my view, in programs like this, make or break largely depends upon the host. The more caliber, thrift, knowledge, control, positive approach and skulduggery a host has, the more he would be able to spice the conversation. Like openers of Pakistani cricket team, the hosts in “Bolain Kya Baat Hai”, keep on changing. We have seen from Fakhr-e-Alam through Mirza Iqbal Baig to Yahya Hussaini. Of these three, Mirza Iqbal Baig is much much better in terms of the qualities described above for a host. Fakhr-a-Alam was very heavy on nerves and was as bad a host as he is a singer whereas Yahya Hussaini was simply a fizzly flop.
To complete the formality, program tries to cover up all sports other than cricket like hockey, football, boxing, squash, but the main attraction remains the cricket and only cricket. The program has had its guest from all corners of cricket which include Wasim Bari, Salim Yousaf, Saleem Altaf, Waqar Younis, and host of others. The main beauty is the live calls of the users and the live telephonic chat with other players. This makes the program a thing of beaut. One can only hope that this program continuous.
