Can ‘Na Bole Tum…’ replace ‘Bigg Boss 5’ successfully?

Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha, the soap that will air from today in place of the reality show, has high expectations to fulfill

Bigg Boss 5 has come to an end, but if you tuned in to Colors by habit at the same time yesterday, you would have still seen the stage being set for two people to fight. Only this time it is admittedly scripted. Kunal Karan Kapoor plays crime reporter Mohan Bhatnagar in the new show Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha and his adversary is not a gangster, but a widowed housewife Meghna Vyas (Aakanksha Singh). Even Salman Khan commented when the lead actors visited the grand finale of Bigg Boss 5 that it is a good replacement for the reality show as here are two characters who fight as passionately as the housemates. However, there is another important point to note – Bigg Boss 5 got an opening TVR of 4.3 that pushed Colors up to second place. When the TVRs began falling – the reason behind the entries of Sunny Leone, Andrew Symonds, Yamamotoyama Ryuta – Colors slipped into third place. Bigg Boss 5 ended with an average rating of 2.5 TVR. The channel needs a show that will bring in the viewers again, and it is banking now on Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha. However, the show’s producers are pretty chilled out. Seema Sharma of Sunshine Productions said, “We have tried something different in treatment instead of the usual cliches. We are not stressed (that it is replacing Bigg Boss 5) and the channel isn’t either. The show has to air on some time slot, then why not this one? It’s not an issue. If the boy and girl click, we’ll get viewers.”  Seema also added that the show has been set in Indore as its culture has not been explored much on television. “Indore is the heartland of India and we thought it is the right setting for a story told from the heart,” she added.

Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha premiered on January 9. It airs weekdays at 10.30 pm on Colors
