KBC 3 isn't KBC tritiah
Kaun Banega Crorepati hosted by SRK [Shahrukh Khan] premiered on STAR PLUS channel today. Great show, this is and reminds me of still greater people. When the show opened, SRK looked damn nervous or was he pretending, we may never know, though this was noticed.
The new 'Don' looked easy on the chair and even though the comparisons will follow, I though for a moment forgot that Big B [Amitabh Bachchan] once dawned it. If the first show is a parameter of things to follow, then, we may expect KBC 3 to be a decent success, not though in degree of its first avatar. People have already been conditioned to this format.
Now the brick bats. It was an expectation that the format will find a little more innovation and scale up a bit to accommodate people's expectation, which did not materialize. Except of SRK specific trivia's[like 'quitting' replaced by 'I will hug you' and things like that], nothing had changed. But then, who wants to wander away from a tried an a tested formula. This is where the producers of the show did disappoint.
Now, the most important question - Will I watch KBC on a regular basis? Yes, I don't know for sure! I am used to the format. Secondly, the probability of getting there has already passed and thirdly, the euphoria has long subsided except habit of people to keep watching it.
I will, for once, give SRK a chance to undo the 'DON' for I am in his list of fans.
