TV TALK

King of comedies

The show is a catastrophic confrontation between a cat and his unwelcome tenants — three cheeky cockroaches.

Oggy and the Cockroaches is a fast-paced, slapstick comedy that follows the classic tradition of ‘the great chase’. The show is about Oggy — a content, lazy and a very tender fat blue cat who would usually spend his days watching TV and cooking, if it weren’t for the three pesky cockroaches in the household — Joey, Dee Dee and Marky. 

The trio seems to enjoy making Oggy’s life miserable, which involves mischief ranging from making a complete mess of poor Oggy’s house to notorious situations like constantly raiding his fridge. The programme airs every Monday to Friday at 5.30 pm with a repeat telecast at 3 pm.

Doing a rain check
Conscious: Addite ShirwakarAfter successfully co-hosting the popular wedding reality show, 'Star Vivaah' on Star Plus, the lovely Addite Shirwakar has taken a sabbatical. For now, she will do a rain check on sweets and calorie laden food.

The lovely lass who seem to have piled on wants to pull down and get back to her original lean self. For a much-conscious Addite, her focus now is to shed the ‘excess baggage’ that she has recently put on.

Says Addite, “Now that I have time on hand, I’m watching my diet, and religiously practising yoga. Mohit gives me company during the yoga sessions. I really enjoyed my stint as a host for both Star Parivar and Star Vivah, and I would love to present more of such shows.”

Shocking ulterior motives
Intense: A scene from 'Vantage Point'. HBO presents 'Vantage Point' on  August 27 at 9 pm starring Dennis Quaid, Forest Whitaker, Sigourney Weaver and Matthew Fox.

Eight strangers with eight different points of view try to unlock the truth behind an assassination attempt on the President of the United States. Thomas Barnes and Kent Taylor are two agents assigned to protect President Ashton at a landmark summit.

When the President is shot, chaos ensues. Howard Lewis, an American tourist, thinks he has captured the shooter on his camcorder. Also there is the news producer Rex Brooks. As they and the others reveal their stories, the pieces of the puzzle fall into place — and it becomes apparent that shocking motivations lurk beneath the surface.
