Big Boss 2

I don't get to watch Indian channels here. Of course, I have not been very interested in saans-bahu serials . But at Bangalore, I used to watch lot of reality shows, especially the musical ones. So I miss doing that here. Yep, some of them are available on the Web. But right now, I am hooked to watching Big Boss 2.

I had seen Big Boss 1 before. It was interesting in the beginning. But the end was very predictable. So when I heard that Big Boss 2 was gonna start, I was curious to know who the contestants would be. Therefore I watched the first episode ( thanks to U tube). And then slowly, I started watching it everyday. And now, I must confess that I have been enjoying it.

It is fascinating to see how the inmates, who are of diverse characters, react to people and situations. I somehow, don't believe that this whole thing is scripted. It is very difficult to stick to acting when you are out of contact with the world and your comfort zone. For me, Big Boss reveals the different facets of human nature. It could be the bout of anger, the game of politics, the threads of friendship, the see saw of trust and betrayal, the momentary madness and the helplessness of cameras being all around you.

At this stage, there are seven contestants in the game:

Rahul mahajan: Best known as Pramod Mahajan's son. Other than that, he has been famous for all the wrong reasons. He has been one of the strong players in this game. Looks like he is enjoying the most, especially the flirting part with Payal Rohatagi and Monica Bedi.

Raja Chaudhary: Better known as Shweta Tiwari's ex-husband. Shweta Tiwari played "Prerna" in Kasauti Zindagi Kay. She had filed a complaint about him being violent and then broke up with him. Known for his eccentricities, he has been adding lot of spice to this show. His encounters with Rahul are very entertaining.

Monica Bedi: No one thought that she would be involved in a romantic angle at the house of Big Boss. She has been singing "Jahan Main Jaathi Hoon Wahi Chale Aate Ho" to Rahul Mahajan as of now. But I think she has become very camera conscious especially after her second entry. But must admit that she has been looking her best. She is a good dancer too.

Ashutosh: Supposed to be the winner of MTV Roadies. Speaks excellent pure hindi. Good fun.

Diana Hayden: The former Miss World should not have entered this game coz she is on the brink of becoming just another player. She comes across as a good human being but definitely she should not think of acting as a career.

Zulfi Sayed: I had seen him before in the kannada movie "O Mallige". As Farah Khan rightly pointed out, he has been following Rahul Roy (the previous winner of big boss). He seems to be the politically correct guy in the house.

Debojit: I have seen him in two musical reality shows before. No doubt that he is a very good singer but did he really need this stint in Big Boss? Definitely the most decent and honest person in the game.

I do not have any favorite players in this show. But it is just fun to watch all these semi-celebrities living their lives, one day at a time. As told before, I prefer watching Big Boss than the saans bahu serials.:)
