Takeshi Jô aka Takeshi’s Castle with hilarious Hindi commentary by actor Jaaved Jaaferi.The show was originally shot in 1982, however, it was aired for the Indian audience with Jaaferi’s comical commentary. The show started with a large group of participants competing to reach the final round by successfully completing the tasks and overcoming the obstacles.

It featured Japanese actor and comedian Takeshi Kitano as a leader of the opposing team who owned a castle and set up difficult challenges for players aka the volunteer army to get to him.
