Story:

Shark Tank India is the Indian adaptation of the wildly-popular entrepreneurial reality show, Shark Tank. The show is based around the idea of entrepreneurs pitching their business idea to ‘sharks’ aka investors and the latter decide whether they want to back the idea or not.

Review:

The Indian business tycoons, who have recently acquired the title of Sharks, seemed on a roll with their decision to back the young entrepreneurs of India. 

Ghazal Alagh - Co founder of MamaEarth, Ashneer Grover - MD and Co founder of BharatPe, Vineeta Singh - CEO & Co-founder of SUGAR Cosmetics, Peyush Bansal - Founder & CEO of Lenskart, Namita Thapar - Executive Director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals, Anupam Mittal - Founder and CEO of Shaadi.com (People Group) and Aman Gupta - Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer at boAt are the seven famous industrialists of the country, who are taking their precious time out to help young Indian minds and eventually adding more value to their own companies with the shares that they are going to own in the startups they are going to invest. 

Any five of the above mentioned seven sharks are present in each new episode, which gets telecasted 5 days a week. The show doesn’t need an introduction to most countries in the world, however, the majority of the population of India are still not familiar with the reality series. 

The first episode of the show started with a bang and on a good note. Aditi Bhutiya Madan, who is also known as 'Momo Mami' presented her vision to take the north-eastern delicacy to a higher level. She doesn’t only make momos but has also invested in a frozen momo business, for which she demands Rs 50 lakhs in exchange for a few shares to the Sharks and gets a fine deal from three of the business personalities. While another young entrepreneur talks about his rented scooter business that gets rejected by the Sharks. In the last five episodes of the first week, the business personalities can be seen rejecting the idea of bidding on a business that they think won't work and investing a generous amount of money in the people they believe to have genuine business plans.

Talk about the authenticity of the reality show, as above mentioned, from the first episode the Sharks can be seen investing in a business that they genuinely liked and thought can grow. It also showcases the conflicts that arise between the business tycoons, which makes it a genuine and intriguing watch.

Verdict:

Shark Tank India has begun on a good note and is growing strong with each episode. The new reality show oughts to be watched and get inspired as well.
