Waar Parriwar was an Indian reality show which was based on music. It was a very popular show across India. The show was a unique reality show. Though there were many music reality shows which took place at that time this show was very uncommon than the other ones. The show had entirely different prospect and concept. The show was based on a musical battle between ordinary families in India.
Urmila Matondkar was the host of the show and
Jatin Pandit was the instructor to the families. The show aired twice a week. The show was appreciated very well among the whole India. Many people applied for the show with their family but 12 lucky families were selected to participate in the show. The show had a unique concept and thus the show gained fame in a very short amount of time.
The show was very creative with showing the bonding between the families which participated and their aspiration for music. The show completely showed how the families came to the show, where they lived and their tribulations as well as their nature. The show also presented the viewers with the enjoyment of the families which passed and the sadness of those who couldn’t make it to the final. There were different judges every week and thus different celebrity judges endorsed the show. The show had many rounds and weeks. A contestant was eliminated every week. There was a voting process for the audience and the eliminated contestant was decided upon the collective result of voting and the marks given by the judges. Thus the show was completely different as there were different judges who marked them differently every week and there was no complaint about being partial. A wildcard entry also occurred in the show where two families were called back.
The show was held for 16 weeks and it was a quite long show. There were different judges till 11th week. But in the 11th week,
Udit Narayan and
Kumar Sanu came as the judges and they were permanently kept by the authority till the grand finale. Actors like Shaina Ahuja came to the show to promote their film but their appearance made the show better.
After a lot of weeks and wildcard entry, the grand finale came. There were two families who competed against each other in the finale for becoming Sangeet ka naya Gharana. After a lot of suspense and climax, it was announced that Sharma Parriwar were the winner of the show and Ali Parriwar were the runners-up.
There were many celebrity judges on the show. Some names were hard to forget and must mentionable. There were Daler mehndi,
Mika Singh, Aadesh Shrivastav, Shaan,
Sonali Mukherjee, Jatin and Lalit, Aditya narayan,
Salman Khan and
