Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) - the new Avataar!


Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) is back and it is nice to see the debonair and suave Amitabh Bachchan guiding the gawky, sometimes terribly insensitive and awestruck contestants through their paces in the hot seat.
One contestant in her nervousness referred to his goatee as a Bengali flower and it almost threw Amitabh off guard. Amitabh being the street smart performer that he is parried the quip effortlessly and carried on with the show with aplomb.

But the way the show is being conducted has changed and changed drastically. Amitabh takes on issues like women empowerment and waxes eloquently. I wonder if KBC the right forum for such issues. KBC is a fun filled jackpot laced with tension and drama and let’s keep it that way.

Amitabh is pouring on the glycerin and KBC is like a tear jerking soap. The effort of a lady who overcomes all odds to come to the hot seat is great theatre but Amitabhji the veneer is wearing off! And some of his cues are not being taken up.

Amitabh was at his best when it came to his tribute to a legend – Rajesh Khanna.  Amitabh very magnanimously commented that Rajesh Khanna was the best and the most idolized and mobbed film star ever and expectantly looked at the contestant. The contestant looked on.

A trifle disappointed Amitabh said that he and Rajesh Khanna acted in many blockbusters including Anand. He may be expected that the contestant would ask him about the famous dialogue of Rajesh Khanna in the movie Anand. Again the contestant did not pick up the cue and with a resigned look Amitabh carried on with the show.

It would be very interesting to find out if the show would get good TRPs this time around or would it be an also run.
