Bigg Boss as a reality show has taken its own course of controversies and seesaw success all these seasons.However this is the first time I’m looking forward to watching it without wanting to be a nippy critic.Salman Khan as a host has undergone a huge transformation keeping his antics originative and this time around more polished.It does look like he’s taking this show seriously unlike in last seasons when his antics and hosting were both rough-cut and naive to the core.Fridays(jummekiraat) with Salman Khanis more interesting than other days esp coz of his hilarious pot-shots at contestants.
Yeah banda toh bindaas hai.Unlike other seasons,vulgarity and brawls are almost governable.Psycho-analytic methods used to design the task, keeping in mind the contestants psyche has made this,once a riling show,very watchable and amusive.The new twist and turns make its unpredictability riveting and yeah,kudos to Salman and Bigg boss 6 crew to make this season unique and diverting.
Its like its graduated from an unruly dictatorship to sapient reasonable prescript.Participants this season are lucky to enjoy relaxed and generous edicts as housemates.People are generously speaking the language they are comfortable in which is ironically english in a formally hindi show.However since the flow of communication is natural and nobody is stringently repramided for the same.Bigg boss 6 season is more fun and frolic with occasions tiffs and easy to breath on the auidence.
Yet another controvercial twist is the must talked about altercation between Sapna bhavani and Salman Khan which has not been aired but talked about in the media.Contrary to his prepossessed violent,abusive image,he has maintained his cool and dignity which comes as a pleasant surprise to opposite anticipation of his reaction.Does age bring reformation?who are we to judge anyway.
Sapna Bhawani though appeared impressive with a rebellious streak,does show remarkable traits of unstability through her body language.Imam is a kala dhabba in the name of art,fashion,etc.He first needs a psychiatrist and if at all some miracle cures his egotistical,narcissistic attitude then he himself should get an image consultant for himself.
Niketan Madhok apart from being super-hot does have in him a winning streak.Why should he bother to take a stand in someone else’s fight?He/Urvashi/Delnaaz and Sapna(has a remote chance) of being finalists.Aaskha Goradia still think she’s acting in a soap opera and not a reality show.Delnaaz also joins the bandwagon of being phoney.Why do some people feel compelled to be sweet and nice to an abnormal level when their ‘show of kindness’ becomes apparent even to the naivest of on-looker.
Mink brar is plain cheap,no extraordinary trait to fit-in.Few people just get lucky.Kashif is yet another sorry excuse of a participant.All puffed-up and conceited to be labelled as an aam-aadmi.Hello-world,hyderabadis are laid-back and cordial unlike what this Kashif person showed himself.Though it was his own individuality and not representing anything.How often do hyderabadis appear on national television?hmm?
Urvashi Dholakia might be loud but she is usually right in her own terms and has strong conviction about what is clear to her.This however,comes out a little aggressively hence people just skim to the surface of her angry temperment and fail to see what she is on the inside.No matter what a person goes through in life,people ignore angry people after a certain point of time.Period!This is the bitter reality of life,unfortunately!
Sana is like a red-head of bigg boss 6.Plain dumb and very good-looking.Vishal Karwal is trying so hard to be upfront,it presumes.He’s trying too hard to show the world he’s not sissy and definately someone who ‘WILL’ take a stand whether it’s required or not.These two messed-up people look good together.
Loved the statue task,and most of the other tasks,made me laugh.For the first time again,in all the seasons,i didnt flip through the channels when the participants were given tasks.Tasks in previous seasons of bigg boss used to be so childish and boring;esp the hackneyed school task.yak!Relieved, its a miss in this season.Sallu bhai has a wonderful mind and a high-spirited soul.Kudos to his liveliness!
Dinesh Niruah is very stylish in his otherwise pics floating online.However his heart of gold and down-to-earth nature is apparent in the show.He could be a dark horse.Genuine,simple,honest man.

A boon for Vegans and vegetarians esp across the indian continent.Most of the travel shows,cookery shows have their round of non-veg platter.Never before,as far as I remember was there a concept or a show solely dedicated to vegetarian food that too with an innovative streak.All most all the cuisines on this show are easy to make and the food and condiments combo is sometimes so novel and exquisite,you would want to try it yourself as well as include in the menu of your theme parties.So easy on time and ingrediants.
Not only is there variety but also a keen interest to bring out the best of innovations in veg food on the tele.A very good attempt in deed.Vicky Ratnani though not a very suave anchor and his double role is like an oversupply of an amateurish presenter.Otherwise for the remarkable supply of awesome stuff he dishes out,such goofy antiques can be ignored.
Cooking for family and friends is such a joy and then what they show in here is something one would look forward to and do all to learn and create the same.The best part is cooking is not more a gender-biased activity.A show so easy on your understanding that even a newbie can get himself/herself interested!
heres a link to the show for your benefit

Four middle aged nymphomaniacs from New York ,Manhattan feel they are free to minx with anonymous to parade their autonomy.Sarah Jessica Parker aka Carrie Brawdshaw is usually so stuck up on Mr.Big she wouldnt mind dallying with him as well as Adrian at the same time acting cute with faux confusion.A columnist who herself is clueless and listless about relations per se and smokes like a chimeny.An example of hairbrained bimbo with unhealthy lifestyle and a huge appetite for hanky panky tellings.With a guiltless stomach for two-timing and is still clueless why they dont seem to work.How can infidelity ever work?A silly baggage with little way with scripted words who lives in denial and has no control over her two-timing accessory that she carries with her along with her fixation for shoes.Isnt self-sufficiency begotten from a successful lifework often the result of good thinking?Why are these go-getters so disappointed in love when all they do is hit the sack with a new man they hunt just about anywhere.What is love to them anyway?Women in this show seem to have been dedicated to debauchery and unhealthy indulgence and yet whimper about being single.Are they really dumb enough or live in denial?Not only do they give a very sleazy impression of what success and emotional independance means to their stereotypical feminist uproar of liberation but also paint a sorry picture of themselves to the world.
However,what I never really understand is the irony that lies in creating a brouhaha about women’s lib and then comparing your abilities with that of men.If you are so liberated,why do you feel the need to compare your abilities and achievements to that of male genre?The likes of Oh,if they can do it,so can we.Why are we still chained to the thought of proving our equality or superiority?Doesnt self-knowledge per se ,set us free?Why do we have to strive to be in a man’s shoes to prove our abilities?Arent we self-sufficient doing and knowing what we are capable of doing?
Kim Cattrall aka Samantha Jones would put Tiger Woods to shame with her need to gulp hormonal pills even after crossing the age of fifty to keep up with her carnal life.Her patented tomfoolery -’Women are for friendship and men are to F***’ doesnt go well with her ownself when she realises the need to have a caring and a loving man in her life,esp when shes has to brook with flu and none of her playmates come to her rescue.If the show is meant to tackle social issues,sexuality,feminism,et al,they are in fact escalating the issues by being a bad influence on impressionable minds.They have potrayed women as coquettish galahs worried at somepoint of time about their sexcapades in direct connection to their health.That is the degree of irresponsibilty these women portray in the veil of free-living.
Kristin Davis aka Charolette is usually mocked for yearning to have true love and dreams of a fulfilling family.This is how they are addressing the modern feminist issues,by deriding a woman amongst the four who ideates having a stable life and is capable of having healthy emotions and a good sense of right and wrong.
Cyntia Nixon aka Miranda is a strong woman with an admirable degree of pragmatism,sees her relations as they are and isnt unrealist in her expectations.Being fiercely sovereign,knows what she wants and what is not acceptable to her and isnt effected by socio-economic stratum when it comes to dating a person she can connect with.
This show is preoccupied with promiscuity and desperation of middleaged women to appear young and fashionable to a degree where there are very few insights on the dynamics of relations limned.This show is all spiced up to draw the attention of the audience but not for long when all there is to it is a soft skinflick with tidbits of story thrown in.
Indira Nooyi,Margaret Thacher and the likes of these women will always stand the realistic examples of tough,headstrong independent women.Success and prosperity are two different things.Success is fully achieving materialistic requirements,prosperity is having materialistic success along with inner peace,calm and harmony.Certainly philandering has never seen the light in the same row of prosperity;be it for the likes of Christopher Marlow or these women in the show.

Pooja Bedi is a pawky hag whose consistant griping over Pooja Mishra isnt going to do any good to her either.What is ridiculous is shes a divorce and has a column where she advices people about relationships.Talk of irony!Now we all can see through her mordant person that is only focused on gnawing Pm’s image.Seriously,if you dont like somebody’s attitude how hard is it to ignore that person and stop giving them any attention?Instead she doesnt leave a single opportuinity to bad mouth Mishra girl.No matter how belligerent and blistering is her way of talking and behaviour,Mishra doesnt gossip and backbite as far as obeserved till date.An anger management would do good to her as she doesnt know how to express and deal with her anger boiling from inside and takes a ugly form on the outside.Nobody is every interested to understand an angry person no matter how genuine they are as individuals.Thats the way of the world.
Laxmi,omg..why does she clap so much,dont her palms ache?its just too much.We could atleast say that Sameer Soni was one genuine contestant in last season,however this time theres not a single person worthy of being called genuine.What is more funny is everybody wants to show off they have a class,esp during a heated altercation.Really,nobody gives a rats arse to care about your classiness.And to think about,people who really do have one,dont have to explicitly prove it or say it,it shows.Who isnt double faced?for whatever reason being upfront about every insignificant thing is some kind of abnormality.Sometimes one has to be diplomatic to avoid predicament..so that doesnt not make you double faced or escapist.However being assertive when required is different from being hyper-reactive for every itsy-bitsy thing.Whats the point of putting someone under the radar when people are different from each other.Accept them or ignore them,bitching about people is like wasting lot of energy.But then they dont have intenet or tv they dont have a chance to be i guess.The concept is a little stretched to bring theirs wits out,and is unfair.given extreme situations anybody could react.
Raageshwari is the fakest.Over sweetness and politness is always a sign of disingeniousness.Always politically correct and spineless.Mandeep is better than everybody else.Doesnt bother about make-up,is not all that made up.who wouldnt like a down to earth person?thats rhetoric.Shraddha sharma is both assertive and dumb.Amar Upadhyay is the mirchi of bb5.Likes to instigate ppl coz he wants to have fun and is upfront about it.
The most invisible particpant in bb5 is ‘energy’.Everbody talking about this energy like they are experts at aura-reading.Spirituality gets bleached when gossipmongers talk about negative energy and its effects.Vida is okay,but what is an Afghan doing in an Indian show?Indian nationality is not a pre-requisite,so it seems.
The biggest ass**** is Big Boss himself,choosing hooligans and goons and creating a ruckus.The interiors of bb5 resemble indian toilet bowl.The interior designer must have been feeling shitty given the concept and crappiness of the show.In confession room,esp,it looks like they are sitting inside the toilet bowl talking sh**.I think its very symbolic or is this symbolism intentional?
Salman doesnt make a good host.It looks like some yobbo was picked from the streets and given an opportuinity to host a show without any panache.It looks like watching a roadside show when he’s talking.Sanjay Dutt is better but his dressing,omg.He looks terrible in denims esp the faded blue colour.He should prolly try to wear a slimfit harem or jodhpuri.He has a good personality,european touch of fashion will do wonders to his image.
P.S:if bb5 insists on ‘Hindi’ to such a great extent that they get ripped for doing that,then why is the name of the show in English?this is heights of hypocracy.They should also call it Bade Saab or something like that instead of ‘Bigg’ Boss.and then the added extra ‘g’ to the ‘big’ spelling for some pansy numerological effect.

Theres sure one lady in the whole wide world obessesed with ‘White’.I say this show is bordering tolerance with her superficial accent puffed with overblown convoluted conduct.Give it a break ,lady.And to add to that her backbreaking attempt to look yound in fish-cut skirts that donot suit her at all.In full shot when she appears with her garb,she looks like an old hag trying very hard to look young.Not to mention the preposterous hamming of ‘kiki’ is enough to cause mortification of one’s acuteness.The concept of the show per se is interesting with each round quite charming only if Simi stops overdoing whatever the hell she is doing.One thing that I really like is the authenticity she bring out of her guests.Now thats a paradox..I still wonder how Sonakshi Sinha is india’s most desirable with tanned skin,terrible english and behaviour of an upstart.If you really have values of a plain-jane9which i’m sure is a good thing),why dont ya try something truly brainaic,glamour aint for you baby.Abhay Deol’s was one of the most amusing episodes.Glad to know about this unconventional boy with unconventional looks.Over all a good show sans the kiki and Simi’s uber superficiality,the skirts that make the otherwise stylish Simi very dowdy and hand-me-down.She rther wear pants or knee-length skirts and not full length skirts.Pearl white and full length fish cut skirts suit only the hourglass figure and not Simi Aunty with some body fat,trying so hard to imbue the british styliziation.And seriously,doesnt she have any other colour nail polish except red..what so ever happened to good old experimenting?One of the other interesting bits is we get to see the ‘real’ side of celebraties than the ‘reel’ side.so….its okiezeya!!
How can you recognize Simi Aunty from a distance?
Its easy-white apparel,red lip rouge,red nail enamel,silver eye shadow just below the eyebrows…and heavy duty superficial attempt at accent.
She is also apt to train call centre employees in voice modulation and intonation.Most importantly I think the world-famous-in-india celebrity Mr.Govind Tiwari can take lot of tips from her to grace his world-famous blog .More than auidence watching this program I think Mr.Tiwari can watch and learn.

For all those backpackers,this show is a boon.Long bike rides or just crusing around in the greens while stopping for a good desi food.This is a very unique concept for a show that doesnt require a huge budget to beckon large number of auidence.Rocky and Mayur visit most of the travelling destinations and give the eateries ratings based on their set parameters.Both vegans and non-vegans can get an idea about ‘where to eat’ while hiking.This show sworn to the hikers for the hikers and by the hikers.A free-and-easy style of bantering about any place and its eatery for anytime of the day.Rightly named ‘highway on my plate.’Watch this show and nextime around,whenever you go on a hike,you know where to stop and have ‘lazzatdar’ easy on your pocket meal.

A show that one can never get bored of and is probably the only program that is franchised by very many english channels on the tele.On a sunday,when you just want to relax and prolly just watch this show with a sip of hot chocklate or something like that.Friends make a huge difference in our lives.They do shape our lives in queer ways.It would be a wish-full thinking to have a family of friends just as this show.If-Ifs and buts were to be given a day and in this case more than a decade to live,we’d all be living rewarding lives enriched with amazing friends,always there all the time.When people from different backgrounds come together and live together,it creates a fantastic realistic living paradise.Each character is so carefully carved and depicted its just fun to watch.When something has had such a legendary success,a phenomena that stands-out all by itself,shouldnt be copied into and made a cheap slapdash like a program on ‘Channel-V’ here.Classics shouldnt be touched,cant be.They stay on the zenith and throw humorous tid-bits as this show does.No matter how many ever times one watches this show,one doesnt feel the humour is ever insistent.Chandler bing and joey can thrown auidence in splits in matter of no time with their timeless comedy.Phoebe’s caricature quirky and honest to the point of being witty.Not a single moment dull or wittyless.Impeccably ironic,sarcastic and funny in its own way.This show for sure rocks for every bite of its comical tid-bits.Can there ever be another Mr.Bing or Joey tribianey or a Racheal,Monica,Ross or a Phoebe?..I’d say no…and with a smug.

Like koffee with Karan this show is hackneyed.Banal twists and blustering are their only cliche they hang on to, in-order to survive in the minds of unlettered youth.Their theme song is as ho-hum as the show perse.They want to make abusing legal,looks like that’s their intrin-’sick’ motto;and this time around,they have Ran-Vijay(oh poor little VJ!:( ) to join the ill-bred predilection.Little advice for ya,mate….esp since you come out to be more humane as compared to your tonsured confrères.Run-Vijay-Run,before your brain cells get influenced by the demented personified.What is so apparent,unfortunately,this time around too;is that the participants with no calibre/talent tend use ‘humility’ and ‘honesty’ as a tool to enter the show.This has always been the case,however,this time around ‘bromidic usage’ of these qualities that have esscence of a certain standing in human life is exploited to a great extent.When Raghu-Rajiv are so superfilious about their infantile reflexes of anger and toughness,why wont the participant follow suite.Infact they have a problem with studs..coz they weren’t and arent studs and cant be even if they try.They cry out the word called ‘individuality’ when they themselves are supposed to do some soul-searching.These kids,i bet had a very sorry teenage life and it shows how they take their angst out on the participants to compensate for what they have been missing..A***** with all sorts of complex mental disorders think the idea of raising hell is something that do something for the youth?Are we really a foolish auidence to give-in to the fetid-fantasies of growling fool?Shouldn’t the young be encouraged to watch programs like ET now where Entrepreneurship is encouraged?We are what we choose to be.Either you can choose to be a roadie or a progressive mind.Now that choice is yours!

Torture begins on 27th nov along with musicians who I bet have not idea about Rock music that has come a long way to become a cult.Rock music is such an archetype cult, portmanteuing a desi twist to Rock can only add an insult to the injury.And what do the contestants perform?….bollywood numbers with some guitars and drums and call that sort of belching cocktail, desi rock.Its a horror show,its has its original potential to even scare Ramsay bros with its horrendous antics and contestants.The icing on the cake is the hippie from Indian ocean Rahul Ram…rama rama…what a choice.Atleast I have some respect for Pritam,he has composed tasty music in the past and still continues to do so.But the hippie is such a hurried choice in the whirlwind.MTV has become a melange of the good, bad and ugly.The good is jose’s brief,creative mtv ads and logos,mtv girls night out(full marks),bad is patented to ‘making the cut,splitzvillas’ and ugly is propritored to ‘rock on’(even the name of the show is not original and they want to judge an original genre such as Rock music).Tera kya hoga re kalia?Rahul ram belongs to the ghetto where he can play his trash guitar to all those destituate kids,or even better join the bandwagon of Himesh Reshmiyaa,atleast truck-drives listen to his music.Prolly he can learn something from him to get atleast some kind of audience.We,in this country,have potent latent potential and talent which is abused by such mediocre shows as we are so soaked in mediocrity,our conscious beats to think of high-standards as acceptable.We are so used to thinking that masses are more acceptable than class.Innovation is revered in the west,infact only originality is accepted there and all we do is copy their music when we are gifted with ming-boggling classical music which I’m sure a metalhead growler cannot simulate.But all they do is bring in bollywood as compared to the evergreen classical music.Out of tune singing of contestestants in the name of giving it a Rock twist is just ridiculous.Rock,heavy metal and all of its subgenres aint tuneless.They are created keeping in mind an ideology the band strongly believes in and follows through.Rock music is an expression with strong intent as opposed to tuneless,shamless slapdash imitation of delusional idea of what it is..as demoed in this show.
Mtv better do their homework before abusing the worlds most revered genre such as Rock \m/ else they’d rather ‘Rest In Piece.!
P.S:I’m drenched in this genre of music so deeply and I feel so strong ,I cant see it go wrong!

How much can you gossip?an hour, max.The fancy-pants,anile gossip monger on the couch with ouch celebrities and the patented questions.An hour of fakeness,vanity and cookie-cutter trademarked questions and assonant cheesy answers of the ouch on couch celebrities.’What would you do when you are stuck up in a lift with—’.Really,if its a bad tropical summer and you had a bad hair day,do you really want to get stuck up with someone in a lift?..Just call the lift man,you can chose a better place to date,instead of being so stuck up.somebody prepper up and ‘uplift’ the standards of shopworn questionnaries of rapidfire round.No fire in rapidfire.Stagnation is so classified when you watch this show.Karan johar sure is,stuck up on these questions.Really,nothing changes on koffee with karan.I thought only wannabes spelt spellings like that ‘koffee’.ha!Same old coffee mugs,same set.Nothing every changes on this set,not even the candy-coated sissy host.First it was simi garewal making everybody sob and now its karan fogging reality and imagination.Can anybody get the real person out of their celebrity status on a talk show.gup-shup is so tacky and limited in significance.Why dont you just press f5 and refresh?wont be pushing too many buttons..

We have the knack of plagarizing any good concept from the West and customize it to the taste Indian audience.This show however,is not a bad show at all.To all the foodies,this show has sumptuous,innovative recipes on their platter created by the contestants.Every challenge is unpredictable,interesting and unique.Each contestant is first taught to create a receipe before they contest to create and showcase the same in a given time frame.Its interesting to see the remarkable perfection, innovation and presentation of the delicacies for which they are voted.How thoroughly can you savour those culinary moments,esp when you are venturing in this arena for the first time?Its awe-inspiring to see the devotion,focus and yearning to finery and finnese the contestants delineate in this reality show.This reality-cooking-competition has made a neat attempt to suit the indian auidence,incorporating,mostly Indian dishes.The show is judged by Kunal Kappor,Chef of Leela Kempinsk,Gurgoan and Ajay Chopra,the famous chef of Oberoi hotels and Our very own hero-Akshay Kumar.Cooking is an art;requires right amount of condiments in the right quantity to pamper your taste buds.A well made cuisine is alluring to senses what maquillage does to linements.
