Make it more commercial, Chetan!

So, it wasn’t a myth. There does exist among us a human being blessed enough to find Chetan Bhagat’s literary efforts intellectually stimulating. In fact, Mr Salman Khan is so concerned with the subtlety of Chetan’s script for his new movie that he wants it redone. Not commercial enough, grumbles the superstar. Perhaps Bhagat, being the engineer that he is, put too much physics into Salman’s shirtless scenes. The new script will thus chronicle, without consorting to the laws of physics, Salman’s 1001 shirtless adventures interspersed with item numbers from Salman’s 6th, 35th and 50th girlfriends.

Dangerous philanthropy 

In a move smacking of undeniable respect and incredible imbecility, Rakhi Sawant has offered to serve Sanjay Dutt’s prison term for him. Knock knock Miss Sawant, Sanjay Dutt has not been voted out of Bigg Boss or some such reality show that you can make a tear inducing sacrifice to drive up the TRP. He is going to a real jail, bonehead!

Meanwhile, India TV have apparently decided to discontinue all operations should Rakhi Sawant’s proposed move go through. Reports claim that 30% and 40% of India TV’s gross revenue came from shows featuring aliens and Rakhi Sawant respectively.

Congress out vote shopping

Vote buying is not a path-breaking concept. Telecasting a video of you doing it on national television definitely is. We are talking about the advert lauding the government’s Cash Transfer Scheme which is already making waves.

The video stars this old man who has obviously suffered a lot. He seems more likely to skewer Manmohan Singh alive than to vote for his party. He approaches the desk and obtains the cash. A hint of a smile appears on his face. He seems to be thinking, ‘This Manmohan is not such a bad lad now, is he?’ If you try hard enough, you can even convince him that Mr Singh posses a full functional spine. Vote bought! Next.

Pope vs Durex!

Yes Mr Pope, we all know you are not down with condoms. Fair enough. But could you please avoid flying all the way down to Africa, the continent most ravaged by AIDS, and preaching against it? Kindly, converse with your imaginary friend and obtain due permissions. If He is as knowledgeable as you claim, I am sure He would understand.

rakhi-ka-swayamvara300Once in a while comes a show that shakes the very foundations of television sanity. NDTV Imagine’s latest reality show: Rakhi ka Swayamvar takes the cake , with icing and even the cherry on top!

Reality television never got so entertaining. The sky rocketing TRPs are ample proof of that. Detractors of the damsel in question maybe falling over themselves criticizing her as the epitome of “ PDA- public display of annoyance” but love it or hate it the show can become an absolute obsession.

As the recently single television star embarks on her quest to find true love, one can’t help but marvel at the sheer drama of this particular swayamvar. Choosing from a host of prospective grooms who range from an age of 18 to 35, the show is to culminate in a live video cast of Rakhi marrying one of these knights in shining armour. However, the “prize”, which in this case is the fair one’s hand, is not a matter of run of the mill wooing .This picky lady shall ensure the physical and mental agility of her suitors.

Whether it is the sudden transformation of the in your face item girl to the coy lass or the string of the arduous suitors going through obstacle courses to get “the moon and stars” for the lady of their dreams, the high entertainment quotient is undeniable.

A brilliant albeit unintentional comedy, the show has definitely created waves. As the inmates of the desi big brother, gear up to stupefy the small screen Indian viewers with another big bother, you are left with two alternatives. You can curl up your lip in distaste, roll your eyes and waggle your head or simply sit back switch off your brain and unabashedly watch the show for its cheap thrills.
