Yesterday night, i let my eyes glance on Star Plus for some time. Of the half-an-hour(or so) of my television viewing quota per day. KBC was playing on Star Plus. I've never seen KBC for more than two minutes. Anyways, Khan fails to impress me(i was blown over by his role in Swades, which probably accounts for about 0.0001%).
The idea behind a reality show like KBC is to make money. To fool the general public into watching a lame show, while Khan, and Star take home hard cash.
I halted at Star Plus, while on my channel-changing spree. A question appeared on the television screen.
'' In the song 'Kya mujhe pyaar hai' of the movie 'Woh lamhe', the hero is supposed to sleep less, and he experiences more of what?"
There were four options. Need i say this- they were atrociously stupid. Primarily speaking, the question asked was simply scandalous. Why would anybody want to ask such a baseless question, rather why would anybody want to answer it? And we are speaking about a game show which is worshipped by many, and watched by millions and millions.
I was stunned, truly. If one wants to participate in such a show, please listen to all the recent tracks, see all the latest movies, even if they don't make sense. Afterall, they also can be termed as 'general knowledge'!
Forget listening to such tracks, most of the times. i'm hardly aware of them. If not for the radio that has empowered us, it would years before i get to know these things. When they are considered 'old' , while i'm called a 'peabrain' !
