EntertainmentDhinchak Pooja – YouTube Channel Analysis

Akshay Chandra3 years ago

Every year, there is at least one artist that comes up with an esoteric YouTube video that becomes viral throughout the internet. Although “Why This Kolaveri Di” was the first Indian song that went viral on YouTube – India, it was Vennu Mallesh’s “My Life (What Ever I Wanna Do)” that started the trend of singing random catchy songs. But only after a couple of videos, his fame diluted into the void of “CAMPY SONGS” available on YouTube.

Several artists followed the same path, with Pakistani singer Tahir Shah releasing his single “Eye to eye,” Daimaou Kosaka’s “Pen Pineapple Apple Pen” and Rebeca Black’s “Friday.” All these heartfelt slices of pop have been panned by critics, both professional and amateur. But what made them viral celebrities is due to their audacity to sing trashy lyrics in the catchiest tune.

This transgressive nature of these artists is the reason why Dhinchak Pooja got so popular in India. It’s true that she is not a singer, can’t write lyrics, and produces a music video that looks like what engineering students would do in their pass time. But this subversion of mainstream standards is what makes us watch “Selfie Maine Leli Aaj” video again and again.

With this ironic viewing stance, it’s hard to deny that we are collectively basking in the warm glow of campy entertainment. And the success of Dhinchak Pooja says it all.

Here is the YouTube channel Analysis of Dhinchak Pooja,


First of all, based on basic Google ads earning, her average earning ranges to 1$ – 1.5$ for 1000 views. Here is the revenue chart based on the same calculation.

The crude reality of Indian YouTube channels is that only a few of Indian YouTube content creators generate 1$ – 1.5$ for 1000 views. This metric is legit if you count premium YouTube channels like T-Series or TVF’s advertisement revenue. At present, Dhinchak Pooja’s YouTube channel is not even monetized for advertisements. So, all your thoughts of making money with crappy lyrics and catchy tunes can go in vain if you haven’t thought of getting serious in the art of “Campy entertainment” videos.

His video titled “DAARU DAARU DAARU SHE IS BACK” generated more than 2 million YouTube footprint which eventually became the real reason why Pooja Jain (A.K.A Dhinchak Pooja) got this level of wide exposure.
