About Neeya Naana Show :
Neeya Naana Show gets positive as well as Negative reviews among viewers. Negative viewers says hat show is completely "cooked up". They do anything to improve the TRP. Like someone mentioned, the Director controls the questions to be asked and the people that need to be focused. Gopinath is a mere doll. Having said that, it used to be a good show in the beginning and later lost it charm when they directed it to increase the TRP. There is nothing wrong in doing a show to increase the TRP but they swallow a lot of good questions and responses. One of the recent episodes had doctors participate and they came back very strongly that an entire section of people's questions/opinions were ignored, some people were humiliated when trying to ask question/respond and they hide a lot of facts that are not favorable.
Gopinath for sure has created a niche for himself, but I wouldn't rate him very high in terms of intellect.
