Audio Quiz (Part 4): Dialogues from Hindi movies

This is the fourth in my series of audio quizzes. We are finally getting to the meat of the show starting with dialogues from Hindi movies. If you think you know hindi movies, this is the quiz to take. It is definitely not hard- there are a couple of challenging ones here. Everything else is fairly straight forward. Par for the course would be 10/15. Anything more is great. 13/15 would be eagle.

Audio Quiz (Part 3): Popular Indian Ad Jingles (contd)

This is the third of my audio quizzes. The first was on theme songs from Indian tv serials and the second one on ad jingles. Today, I am offering the third of those quizzes. The theme of this one is again popular TV ad jingles- mostly from the 80s and 90s. Many of them originally appeared on Doordarshan while some bled over to satellite TV. This should be relatively easy (expecting a lot of 10/10s here) than the TV serial one. After this we have dialogues from movies- tamil, hindi, and english.

Audio Quiz (Part 2): Popular Indian ad jingles

Earlier this week, I published the first of a few audio quizzes I had prepared for a family Diwali event. Today, I am offering the second of those quizzes. The theme of this one is popular TV ad jingles- mostly from the 80s and 90s. Many of them originally appeared on Doordarshan while some bled over to satellite TV. This should be much easier (expecting a lot of 10/10s here) than the TV serial one. I have 10 more of the ad set which I will publish in a few days.

The response for the first quiz was interesting. On one hand,  analytics tells me that over a hundred people viewed the post and most of them spent a good amount of time on the page meaning- atleast heard a few of the audio clips. But the actual number of people who took the quiz was much lesser- closer to 10-15%. This tells me one of two things – either the quiz was too hard and folks felt they would not fare well or that it was boring and not worth an attempt. If it was the former, I would like to clear the air- any score is a good score. That is why I ask people to message me in private. Also, it is all for fun. If its the second, would like to hear your feedback on how it could be more interesting.

Audio Quiz (Part 1): TV serial theme songs

Every once in a while, we are reminded of our childhood back in India. Of TV serials and funny ads and iconic movie dialogues. Well, here is your chance to relive that age.

I recently conducted a small audio quiz for a bunch of family members visiting for Deepavali. The topics were:

  1. Hindi movie dialogue clips
  2. Tamil movie dialogue clips
  3. English movie dialogue clips
  4. Indian TV ad jingles
  5. Indian TV serial theme song snippets

I had a phenomenal time just preparing the quiz. I spent hours across multiple nights listening to hundreds of movie dialogues, ad jingles and TV show theme songs to narrow down to a few simple ones that are instantly recognizable, yet fun. I was swept in a wave of nostalgia. I publicly mused on Facebook if I could post it online after the event and here is my attempt at it.

If the first quiz has a good response, I will post the rest over the next few weeks in bite sized chunks.

Caveat:
