Big Boss is a very popular reality show on Colour TV. Now its 13th season is going on with celebrated film star Salman Khan as the host. To me, the Big Boss is not looking so big as far as its social and moral values are concerned! Almost all the contestants seem much aggressive and they hardly miss any chance to humiliate one another. There is a painful lacking of patience, honesty and sincerity to accomplish tasks as assigned by the Big Boss from time to time. Demonstration of muscle power is much prominent and selfishness is evident! The show is greatly dominated by the ‘heart-shaped matter-sapper’ of Sidharth, Shehnaz, Rashmi, Paras, Mahira, Vishal…..
Perhaps, keeping Shidharth and Paras in secret room allowing them to control some activities of the contestants imitating the voice of Big Boss (by Paras) had deeply harmed the game because this has created a master-minded alliance of Shidhart and Paras. They are actually driving the game. The host is even hesitating to rule Sidharth! Perhaps, both Sidhart and Paras could be sent to the hospital for the treatment of their illness as it was done in case of Debolina for a fixed time.
We are all aware that Salman Khan is a very experienced and skilled compere but I feel that some of his actions were irrelevant; for instance, bringing some contestant’s personal issues into the Big Boss house, chiding responsible persons, etc. And I didn’t like his remarks about Shehnaz-“She is dangerous….Sidhart, you be careful” which I think totally uncalled for!
Meanwhile, I am glad to learn that the Big Boss season thirteen shows are running with a high TRP! Looking forward to see who wins the game; I am confident that the esteemed members of the public would vote for the winner judiciously.
