Meanwhile, Kodeeswari was a concept along the lines of popular game shows like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and Kaun Banega Crorepati. However, Kodeeswari had a stark difference from other similar shows, as it was an all-women crew that catapulted the show. From hosts to the technical crew, Kodeeswari had women at the forefront. 

The show was reportedly started to bring women at the forefront and help them in fulfilling their dreams. The Tamil version of Kodeeswari was won by 31-year-old Kousalya Khartika from Madurai. She reportedly won a sum amount of Rs 1 crore and became the first Kodeeswari of the Tamil version.
