Why Bigg Boss should be banned? [Media Monday]
Well there are good shows and there are bad shows, but then there are ugly and non-sense shows too! Yes, I’m talking about Bigg Boss which is already in trouble due to the scenes where inmates are making out in front of Camera, there is a ‘Suhaag Raat’ and to top it all now there is (soon to join) Pamela Anderson!
Pamela will be in the show for 3 days for which she has been paid Rs. 2.5 Crore. Many MPs and politicians including Congress MP Jagdambika Pal, I&B ministry and Shiv Sena have strongly criticised the show for it’s vulgarity.
For me Bigg Boss is a failure right from its concept stage to content stage. They can’t defend themselves by giving excuses like people watch the show and love it. It’s not an excuse, people even watch Blue films and (apparently) like it.
It’s like mixing drugs in Cold drinks without making anyone realize and then defending themselves by saying that people are enjoying it even more! Show is addictive because it has vulgarity, infidelity, lies, abuses, back bashing and no, I mean absolutely NO positive qualities!
There are many formats of “Reality Shows”, although all of them have some negative qualities but at least their motive is good and this include shows like “Rakhi Ka Insaaf”[ Must read – The Reality of Reality Shows And Is The Government Interference Justified?]. On other hand in “Bigg Boss” there is no clear goal, there are fake eliminations and inclusions, no one is challenged for any task or anything. It’s like a “Page-3” drama enacted on screen in front of a billion people including small kids. Wonder what are they going to learn from all this?
This season of Bigg Boss started with the elimination of “Bunty- The Chor” who was abusive and defiant and when organizers understood that no one else is abusing on screen any more, they called in Dolly Bindra! Dolly has the ability to make a local mob look Bachha in front of her Gaalis (abuses). This shows their (producers of show) mentality, they need people like Dolly to make the show HOT and including Pamela will literally mean making it hotter. There is also Pakistani Actor Veena Malik flirting with both Ashmit Patel and Hrishant Goswami openly on-screen.
Combining all these elements means a hot (Blue) show on Indian televisions without any cuts and during Prime-time, asking every kid to openly spoil themselves.
Why no one is noticing and doing anything?
