The show used "cheats" based on the American show.

  • Taak Jhank (peek): the contestant had the opportunity to review his or her current teammate's answer before submitting his or her own
  • Copy: the contestant could choose to use his or her teammate's answer.
  • Bachao (save): This cheat was triggered automatically if the contestant gave a wrong answer. If the contestant's current partner had the correct answer, the contestant was then saved.


The teammates were five school aged children chosen by the producers of the show. Each child could be used for assistance on two questions, excluding the bonus question.

The five possible teammatesEdit


Question number 5 was the deadline question; if the contestant gave the wrong answer, he or she lost all the money won on the show, or with the correct answer won that amount as a guarantee from that point forward.

Homework questionsEdit

This show also posed homework questions, offering ₹ 100,000 to a viewer selected by draw who correctly answered a question asked at the end of the show.
