Fear fracas!

Fear surely has taken on a whole new dimension for our glam brigade! Sony's desi version of Fear Factor definitely is interesting...but one hopes that in the forthcoming episodes of the show, the celebs show more guts and courage than what was on display in the last two weeks.

The celeb brigade's on their way!

But this is easier said than done! To be locked in a box full of snakes (so what if they are not venomous!); to be handcuffed inside a coffin like box with millions of worms crawling all over you! or to dive inside a pool, while holding your breath -- these tasks are tough enough, but perhaps tougher to do sans makeup!

Jokes apart, it is commendable to see TV actors having the guts to shed their 'macho hero' image and try something that challenges their physical and mental strength. A case in point is Rohit Roy, who couldn't make much of a mark against the likes of Chetan Hansraj and Amit Sareen. Shweta Salve was quite a revelation, she displayed guts truly expected of a participant of a show like Fear Factor.

As is the case with the original version, the show has a huge setup and it has been shot spledidly at the Endemol facility in Malaysia. The pace is nicely built with great shots and wonderful packaging and that makes Fear Factor India worth watching.

Vikas Sethi: richer by 10 lakhs

But one thing's for sure, there lurks the danger of the show becoming a damp squib if celebs bow out of challenges, without given them a try! This way, the one million rupee jackpot is served on a platter to whoever goes through the motions without a care for the time taken for the feat!

Muskaan Mehani and Mansi Verma failed to put up a fight even as host Mukul Dev tried to make them get on with the challenge in last week's episode. Thus, while the first episode was quite exciting, the second one failed to impress! Mukul Dev is thanda as an anchor and fails to keep the tempo going!

Vinod Singh: happy to participate

The USP of the show is not only celeb participation, but participation with the sole aim of victory! The final reward should hold a tad more importance and it's only then that the will to win will reflect on the performance of the celebs. Lines like "It doesn't matter, if I don't win" just take away the spice from the show and the excitement fades away and then the remote does its job.

Overall, Fear Factor India needs to pull up its socks...Sony has a tried and tested formula on its hands...it's time they find celebs who can stand up to challenges thrown at them!

Tough luck, celebs...it's time to toughen up!
