The other day I was surfing channels out of complete boredom…and I happened to come across “ Rakhi ka swayamwar!!
Oh my gosh! She can even beat Charlie Chaplin in her comic expressions! Her entire avtaar of a sati-savitri bahu meeting her would be in- laws.., promising to be an ideal daughter -in- law…blah..blah! and what I came to know of late is that this show is gathering a good amount of TRP’s. How does one classify this show ? Drama, Reality-TV or comedy? Are people that desperate for entertainment that they are willing to see a girl making a stage-show out of her marriage! Then comes Sach ka Samna! Phew!! People, in fact celebs, revealing their deep, dark secrets on national television.
The government has criticised this show, which has lead to its publicity !! wow!! and we are expected to get thrilled and excited on knowing some shameless revelations of unknown people. As a regular viewer of television I really miss shows like “Dekh bhai Dekh,” “Sarabhai vs Sarabhai,” “Kichdi,” “Hum Paanch” BQC, etc…these shows could really bring a smile on our faces! Even the very recent Roadies (excluding the abuses),song and dance based reality shows; could prove to be more entertaining than these! It’s high time TV producers came up with more meaningful ideas or else just repeat old trends of entertaining people!! come on people, after all…The Idiot Box does not have to live up to its name!
