'Zoom Review Show' completes 200 episodes

MUMBAI: Zoom, the Indian glamour and entertainment channel is high on the heels again. The channel which recently, crossed an unprecedented five million likes on Facebook has added one more success to its tale. The channels' 'Zoom Review Show' crossed the 200 episode milestone on 20 September.

Hosted by journalist and noted Bollywood expert Omar Qureshi, the show was launched in 2009. This most viewed movie review show on TV now has also become the longest running one.

Talking about the success, Zoom TV editor-in-chief Omar Qureshi said: "It's gratifying to reach the daunting milestone of 200 episodes of a weekly show. But all thanks to an amazing audience and a supportive industry who've been open to sometime not-so-flattering reviews, since fairness has been the benchmark set. We have always endeavored to give the first complete review and keep the viewing public in mind. And it's gratifying that the people have given a 'thumbs up' to a continually top rated show. Here's thanking all and cheers to another double century."

The show focuses on the regular movie-goer, who is keen on knowing if a movie is value for money or not. The star-cast of the movie, their performances, its musical score, item numbers, most impactful scenes, interesting or funny screenplay, the quality of its visuals - are some of the many factors that come together in determining the movie's entertainment value. Rather than just giving a critical discourse about a movie, the show sets things into perspective by breaking down the movie for the audience around these aspects and gives a very relatable and believable analysis.

The programme looks beyond Bollywood releases and also reviews the big Hollywood releases of the week. Acknowledging the importance of music in a Bollywood flick, it also features a dedicated section where the music of upcoming releases is reviewed.

The completion of 200 episodes got the Bollywood fraternity congratulating the team on its success. Actor Ileana D'cruz said, "I congratulate Omar Qureshi and 'The Zoom Review Show' on its 200 episode."

Sonakshi Sinha in a message sent to all Zoom viewers said, "It is the one show where I get my reviews and the honest ones, so keep watching!"

Ajay Devgn in his signature light-hearted style quipped to Omar, "It's been 200 episodes of 'Zoom Review Show' and nobody's killed you yet. So you're living through it and I hope you keep surviving. You do a great job; just give a few more stars to my films."
