Here's a review of the first episode of the dance reality show...
Nach Baliye has been one of the most watched reality TV shows in India. A show which is being watched not just by the youngsters but by people across age groups. It has been one of the most watched dance shows not just for the dance performances but for the chemistry between the real-life couples. This season too brings together an assimilation of 11 couples who are there not just to prove their prowess in dance but also their romantic quotient between each other.
5 things that I loved about the show:
-Chetan Bhagat was an absolute delight. For the first time I saw a reality show where the judge was not just saying good things about the contestants but also pointed out their short comings.
-Himmanshoo A Malhotra and Amruta Khanvilkar's performance was brilliant. Out of all the couples, their performance scored 29 points and won immunity from next weeks eliminations.
-The format of the show seems great. This time there will be no public voting till the finale. That way the dance performances will be judged on their dancing ability and not by their fan following.
-Hosts Karan Patel and Rithvik Dhanjani were good. They managed to make you laugh at times and also stood up to the judges whenever necessary.
-The surprises that the makers of the show got was commendable. Whether it was the video messages from parents of Mrunal Thakur and Sharad Chandra or it was Aishwarya Sakhluja's dad's sudden arrival — all was very well timed. It created the necessary emotional quotient, which was necessary in such a show.
5 things I hated about the show:
-Preity Zinta was very lenient as a judge. She was giving 9 points to every contestant and it seemed she was just trying to boost the morale of the contestants.
-Fights between Marzi Pastronji and Chetan Bhagat were fun for the first few times, but later on it became painful. You could make it out that it was scripted.
-The 2.5 hour long duration of the episode was really tiring. Even die hard fans of the show would have got tired and felt like leaving switching over to another show.
-The show's format seems to have been turned into a daily episodic show. It will be aired like Bigg Boss, which isn't that cool. If we did want to see boys and girls stranded inside a house, we would watch Bigg Boss and not Nach Baliye. But the mystery is still not clear about the same. It will be done in tomorrow's episode.
-Some of the dance performances were a bit too mechanical. Many contestant seemed like they were doing PT exercises and they did not enjoy much while performing.
