Bigg Boss one of the most popular shows on Sony Tv has been on air for a couple of weeks amassing immense popularity with every other day and the eliminations being made every weekend. One by one the inmates of Bigg Boss' house are leaving and much politics is being played among the participants who are vying to stay till the last save for Amit and Rupaali, all eager to be back with their dear ones. The participants Rahul, Ravi, Rupaali, Amit, Baba, Carol, and Rakhi mostly play it safe.
Rahul, the bhaiyya to the inmates always maintains a low profile though at times in one of his strange moods he does indulge in a little revelry. Rahul maintains a sober mood always and a certain degree of aloofness though he does participate in all the activities.
Ravi who is the most paid actor on the show is hell bent to hold on till the last. With his Bhojpuri accent and rustic temperament he does play games on a different plane. Nevertheless Ravi can be troublesome with his skirmishes with Amit. Ravi is perpetually obsessed with cleanliness in the kitchen though he is usually clumsily clad.
Amit the sportive person has of late let loose his tantrums by refusing to be a part of Bigg Boss' battalion, the mock army set up in the household. The lovesick hero is too eager to be with his ladylove Neeru. Amit and Ravi indulge in a real love-hate game of politics to the extent of backbiting. Amit sportingly called Chotu by Rupaali convinces her to break her hunger strike. His passions are rather unpredictable and mood swings rather strange.
Baba Sehgal, the singer maintains a cheerful temperament and has composed songs for every inmate extolling their virtues. But as the tension is reflected in him too, he is sported as having a major gossip session with Rakhi Sawant austerely probing into each person's character and hidden motives. This week Baba is the commander along with Rupaali commanding the rest are jawans in the army.
Rakhi Sawant, the item girl who has made a dramatic come back is all set to play the game till the end, when she makes it loud and clear that she will not leave this weekend nor the following one. In her idiosyncratic style she adds spice to the show making it light and fun filled. Her chirpiness does exceed the limit of irritation though she can be loud mouthed in her own ways. With her clear-cut notions as to who is playing game and who is not, she has assumed the role of a judge who passes judgement before the d-day.
Rupaali, the crybaby is one who tries to gain everyone's sympathy covertly, be it her being nominated or not being nominated for elimination. She is always on the look out for a reason to shed tears. Lately her hunger strike against Bigg Boss for not allowing her to wish her parents on New Year's Eve fell flat when upon Amit's wheedling she willingly gave it up.
Carol is not much of a troublemaker and does not indulge too much in gossip or other tantrums. She steers herself clear of Rakhi's tantrums and rupali's grumpiness. The model has learnt the basics of acting really well and has an edge over others with her ever cool attitude and sprightliness.
Big Brother the original version is now into its second phase on Channel 4 anchored by the Bollywood sensation Shilpa Shetty. Bigg Boss's battalion is all set for the final countdown, which is to take place a few weeks later to declare the winner. Amit in his own ways has decided to leave and stands a clear chance of being evicted by this week or so. Time will declare the winner who has survived all mind games to emerge victorious in the end.
