Amitabh Bachchan shines effortlessly in the debut of Kaun Banega Crorepati season 6 which happens with a bang and is all that you were looking for, and more!
Amitabh Bachchan takes over the screen and effortlessly launches into the new season of Kaun Banega Corepati season 6 like it was only yesterday when he first dominated the tube back in 2000, with KBC season 1.
KBC 6 clearly succeeds. Before this the game show desperately tried to reinvent itself and used every trick in the book. It changed wardrobes, style, the way the game is played, introduced new catch phrases like Freeze etc. and even its esteemed host! But it struggled to succeed, evident by low TRP’s, and the gimmicks were quite visible to the public, jo sab jaanti hai, bhai!
But with season 6 there have been some critical changes, namely two which one cannot ignore. The first is the choice of contestants. The KBC production team has really scouted the country and has gotten authentic people to take part. They seem very real and one cannot fail to notice the parallels between the contestants and Slumdog Millionaire! There is a contestant from Rajasthan; all of 24 years old, the guy quit his job after watching 3 idiots, has a wife who’s gone home seeing the cramped condition he lives in. But its his time now as he is on the hot seat now, ready to take on the world!
The second one, partly inspired by Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate and partly by a brand of Anna Hazare’s chest thumping in your face patriotism which, even if executed cheaply, makes the audience take notice. And this season is a safe, non -toxic mix of it.
Amitabh Bachchan is more natural than he’s ever been and he chats up the contestants quite coolly. He is a perfect host this time. At 70, Amitabh even breaks into a neat little Bhangra gig to please a contestant! All in all, it is another successful season, but with some long and tedious breaks!
