Big Boss 5

Once again, it’s the season to be bitchy, gossipy, judgmental and voyeuristic. We’ve have witnessed many a beeps, back-biting sessions, petty to horrid fights and flirtatious encounters¬† on Colors’ controversy-ridden yet hugely popular reality television series. The fifth edition promises to offer enough vicarious pleasures of its own with last year’s groovy host, Salman Khan revisiting the madhouse alongside a woefully miscast Sanjay Dutt. The hunky pair makes a stylish entry in coordinated leather jackets and bikes.

Nothing’s really changed for the 45-year-old superstar. During the pbrevious season, he was high on the success of Wanted and Dabangg. This year, he’s roaring on the strength of two blockbusters — Ready and Bodyguard. One would have thought his on-screen chemistry and real-life bonhomie with co-star of films like Saajan and Chal Mere Bhai would translate to playful camaraderie on television as well. But Dutt aka Baba’s too self-conscious, passive and dull to match the spontaneous zing of Khan aka Bhai. Reduced to a willing subordinate, he rarely makes any impression. Let’s hope, he opens up and lives up to his ‘Munnabhai’ candor in the subsequent episodes. Salman, on the other hand, ribs the participants, throws in an in-joke and isn’t afraid to mock himself or his partner. On spotting a prison inside the house, one of the newly-introduced features, he’s witty enough to quip,’Yeh jaana pehchana lagta hai.’
Coming to the opening episode, it wasn’t nearly as grand as its predecessor with hurried introductions, lackluster performances and almost zero turn out from previous seasons. Unless you count former contestant Sameer Soni’s brief appearance to promote his upcoming wedding in on-going Colors serial, Parichay. And since Dutt’s Rascals is ready for release, co-stars Ajay Devgn and Lisa Haydon show up to plug the David Dhawan comedy. The men collaborate to pull a fast one on Lisa but her inability to play along makes this one a flat prank.
Ah yes, participants. Sorry folks, no Jonty Rhodes, Mike Tyson, Shakira yet. Curiously enough, there’s an overwhelming presence of girl power inside the Bigg Boss zoo this time — 11 girls, 1 guy and a eunuch. It’s a tedious ploy that could both – work or fizzle. Either it will result in catfights galore or become too monotonous for its own good. Here’s what to expect from this lineup of 14:
