the idiot box..

I had been waiting for this show to come on air. And at last, after the long wait, yesterday it finally did! Those of you who had the (mis)fortune of witnessing this show would agree with me when I say it’s a ground-breaking show. No, its not ground breaking in the sense that it will change reality television forever( just like all other reality shows claim to ) but its pioneering in the sense that it might just question your very purpose of watching TV.. it will raise doubts on your sanity and good judgment! If you haven’t already guessed it, I am talking about the new show Rakhi Ka Swayamvar.


Did anyone on the planet see that or was I the only jobless one around! Well I am telling u, if u missed it you have really missed out on a lot! It was better than all the Laughter Challenge seasons plus Comedy Circus shows put together! Omg! It was hilarious! I mean what was with that stupid ‘introduction with Rakhi’ thing where these guys were to walk down a red carpet and meet Rakhi, trying to make a good first impression. Everyone bought her gifts ranging from jewelry to Ganesh idols to orange barfi’s (!!) and obviously said something in her ‘praise’. Some of them actually seemed quite close to being genuine by calling her ‘divya rupini’ and ‘sapno ki pari’!! I tell u they will make good actors!


There was this one guy who just kept saying AMAAJING AMAAJING! And there were others trying to flaunt their pathetic English skills in front of You-Know-Who! I really didn’t get the point! May be they were trying to give Rakhi competition! For all I can say, they were treading the wrong path. Each of them was trying different things like poetry, dancing etc etc to score ( not literally!) and get a stupid broach dubbed as some ‘pyaar ka nazrana’. And I was just left thinking how much more dumb can this show get. Add to all this, her fake impersonation of being shy and wary--it gave me creeps!! Agghhrr…I did actually end up missing the loud and in-your face bindaas Rahki! She would have kicked each of these contestant’s a$$!! Well then the producers would have gone bankrupt because the show would have to be taken off air!


In short, as u might have guessed already, I loved the show! It had me in splits! :D


You know what the saddest part is, that there are guys, in flesh and blood, who actually participated in that show. It’s said that lakhs of applications were submitted once the show was announced! Oh for God’s sakes! I can’t believe someone actually wants to be RAkhi’s ‘dulha’! I mean I have nothing against her except the fact that SHE IS RAKHI SAWANT! It’s sad that people like her, who have little talent to speak of, make it this big, thanks to jobless channels like AAJ TAK and INDIA TV. Such people and such shows are nothing but free fodder to these baseless channels that showcase everything except meaningful news! I mean when one hears headlines as – “Katrina hai ‘kis’se pareshaan” and “khooni baba ka khufnaak sach”, one can only scorn in distaste!



It just goes on to further justify the nick name given to our television sets…..

haha... can't believe the fact that I actually go with the tide when I'm not allowed to flip channels when the show is being aired...

just the one question as wrote - "Why Rakhi Sawant? " Agreed the sex ratio in the country is way to distorted, but then Rakhi doesn't seem feminine enough... go home guys get a real gal in real life and spare me and millions of others the agony. PLEASE DO!

Ashwin said...

man, i hate shows like these. Can't people really find better ways to spend time?

asit dhal said...

The channels are selling what sells in market....

Rakhi Sawant is doing what she can do...cheap publicity ....

And hundreds of jobless people are doing what they can do.....at least it's better to come in such shows than doing nothing....

But unfortunately they are making the mockery of the system which is established thousands years back...

Nice post... Seems you have not blogged for quite a while, is the end of the show any reason for it?
