Warning: This is a blog that lacks intellectuality. My levels of IQ stand as lofty as that of Paris Hilton's pet pomeranian and my knowledge of current affairs is as deep as Mandira Bedi's of cricket. I mostly ramble about the trivialities of my everyday life, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, friends n family, movies, cricket; basically thoughts that would enter the mind of any Sita, Gita or Rita.

Note: I was busy drooling over the pages of Playboy during my English classes in school. So please bare with any grammatical blunders or the obvious lack of classic literary writing. (I was a little confused between the selection of 'bear' and 'bare' in the sentence above so I resorted to my favorite inky-pinky-ponky routine)

If you happen to pass by, feel free to register your presence. coz yeh duniya bahot chhoti hai aur yeh zindagi bahot lambi. Kya pata, someday somewhere, you and I might end up discussing about it over a cup of garam garam masala tea.

The Reality is *beep beep beep*

Q. Who is the most hard working person at MTV?
a)Rannvijay
b)Raghu
c)The person with his hand on the beeper
Here's one more:

Q. Name a 4 letter word that starts with 'F', ends with 'K', and if you can't get one you can use your hands.
A. Fork

What!! You thought I was referring to 'The F word'. Of course not. I refrain from the use of such foul words on this blog. One has to maintain decency. After all, Abhishek-Aishwarya ke hone waale bachhe bhi yeh blog padhte hai :P

But seriously, I cannot digest the appetite of these Reality contestants for The F word. Do none of them have a vocabulary better than a Panchvi pass so that they don't have to resort to use The F word in every sentence. Didn't the contestants learn in their schooling grammar that there are only 3 articles in the English language. And that the usage of The F word should not be synonymous with those of articles.

And whats with all the judges in these reality shows. While some of them are trying to imitate the likes of Simon Cowell, the rest are busy fighting with each other probably trying to convince Ekkkta to cast them in her latest venture, Mahabharata. The judges of Comedy circus are the only ones that seem to be behaving on the saner side. And the show is also pretty good. Good light hearted comedy with lots of variety.

Mere favorite judge is Javed Akhtar saab. Being such an accomplished writer himself, he uses such high level language while giving feedback ke contestants ko samajh mein hi nahi aata ki taarif kar rahe hai ya vaat laga rahe hai. The bewildered look on their faces is truly priceless :D

So while on the discussion of reality shows, let me ask what has been your all time favorite reality show? Mine remains The Apprentice. Whats yours?

And before ending the post, I suggest the following title track for MTV Roadies 6.0 - the game goes alien!! I think its pretty apt :)

Doston mein baitha main sutta pi raha
Abba ne mujhe sutta peete dekh liya
Ghar jab pahuncha to danda ho gaya
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.

College mein gaya mujhe pyaar ho gaya,
Usne bhi mujhse mera sutta chheen liya
Sadkon pe ghooma main tanha reh gaya
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.

Shaadi hui main husband ban gaya
Raat bhar *beep* main *beep* *beep* *beep* gaya
Khushiyon ki khatir mera sutta chheen gaya
B*beep* sutta.

B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, mujhe sutta na mila.
B*beep* sutta, sutta na mila.

*beeeep* *beeeep*, *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep*.
*beeeep* *beeeep*, *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep*.
*beeeep* *beeeep*, *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep*.
*beeeep* *beeeep*, *beep* *beep* *beep* *beep*.

Solitaire said...

I saw only one episode of MTV Roadies and was shocked beyond words at what the Indian audiences are lapping up.

GOSH! What's with the F word. Even the country where the F word originated does not use it as much as Indian youngsters do. Apparently, it is some "cool" word to be uttering to appear hep and all.

Chakoli said...

Reality shows are more of created drama's...
on screen kuch aur aur off screen kuch aur....

and the F wrd.... i guess... no other words are left to be used by them :((

Keshi said...

The F word should not b abused! It is there to be used, only when it's really necessary. WTF!

:)

Keshi.

ceedy said...

PizzaDude said...

Abhi-Ash has having a baby? When did that happen? Damn! Am so far away from all the bollywood gossip. I miss it at times :(

I loved watching "The Apprentice". Especially the way Donald Trump says 'You are fired'.

Among the Indian ones, I liked Nach Baliye. I happened to have seen only season 1 though.

Think Tank said...

~pizzadude
Arre dude, that was no gossip; it was hypothetical :) or as far as my knowledge goes..

And then at the end of the series, come THE 3 words: You are hired :D

Yeah Nach Baliye was good. Contestants played it in the right spirits..

~think tank
How do you live without tv ??? I can't imagine :D

~abbhinav
If beep is your favorite sound, be careful when driving thru no-honking zones :D

Urv said...

~joiedivivre

Aditi ''Jiggs'' said...

lolzzz
my fav reality show
the apprentice (the last season sucked )
n
the cut

beep
:P

Express said...

LOL, reality shows suck, but news channels r worse!

Not too much television, but I like comedy circus and hate any kind of musical reality. Plus, don't even get me started on children n reality shows!

Yea, a lotta ppl use the f word like its the only word they know.

BTW , hindi galies rock ;-)

Express said...

Added u on blogroll :-)

Urv said...

~aditi "jiggs"
I too liked the initial seasons more.. Have not watched The cut.. beep :)

~express
Hey yaar, don say anything to the news channels. Some of them do a lot better comedy than comedy shows :)

Thanks for adding me :) I too have to update my blogroll.. Shall be doing that soon..

Nidhi said...

None of the SO CALLED reality shows are REAL... the amount of drama they have... they are next drama kings after EKTA KAPOOR's Shows...

Am sure EKTA would soon jump with a reality show with its name starting with the letter "K"... she can't take competition u see :D

Deepti said...

Comedy circus is good. My favourite reality show is Boogie Woogie (it is a reality show right?)

I don't like Splitsvilla (though it is quite addictive, once you start watching it). I find it degrading and demeaning.

I don't like the Western reality shows. They take out the fun out of the task being performed (Hell's Kitchen for example).

Haha.. Thats so true.. Ekta's reality show would be damn hilarious I bet.. :)

Urv said...

~deepti
Yeah Boogie Woogie is the one that has been going on maintaining decency for a fairly long time.. :)

Yup.. Splitsvilla shucks bigtime.. !!

Hmmm.. Some western shows do that to some extent.. But I did like Hell's kitchen.. Saw only a few epiosdes that too towards the end of the season..

Paradox Philic said...

I religiously followed Sa Re Ga Ma musical talent hunt shows.. some fantastic singers there!!

P.S. - Ahhhh...the sutta song. Nostalgia, nostalgia, nostalgia.... thankyou.

Sarath said...

Well I think this beep culture is not only limited to the tv shows. I am in a management college and I find even girls dont battle an eyelid before uttering the f-word regularly.

Good post though. keep it up

Sarath

Urv said...

~paradox philic
Yup Sa re ga ma was one good show..

Sutta days were really THE days :D

Urv said...

~sarath
What the F.. :)
Thanku sir..
