Review: Welcome… Baazi Mehman Nawazi Ki

The most anticipated reality show, Life Ok's 'Welcome… Baazi Mehman Nawazi Ki', premiered last night featuring 5 celebrities:Sanaya IraniManoj TiwariVJ AndyNigaar Khan, and Ragini Khanna.

The show is based on the international series, 'Come Dine with Me' where five entertainment personalities meet up for dinner. One of the five plays host and is judged by the rest, on his or her cooking and hospitality skills.

The premiere night featured Sanaya Irani as the first ever dinner host who made an adorable yet strong attempt to impress the rest . Nigaar Khan was the toughest critic while stirring trouble and Manoj Tiwarioffered comical appetizers during the introductions. Andy felt a bit vanilla whileRagini was her awesome self with a bit of sugar and spice and everything nice.

The show was infused with some emotional, clichd and fun moments like Tiwari's divorce revelationNigaar's stones in the Pasta, and VJ Andy's dance. Though the dinner didn't go exactly as expected, but it seemed like the guests had an entertaining evening.

Before we review the show, we're compelled to ask, where was Ram Kapoor? We were anticipating to catch Kapoor in his awesome entertaining off screen presence while he played host. But other than a short introduction, Kapoor was missed for the most part.

The duration of the show should have been for an hour. It seemed like there was too much going on. Everyone was happy for a split second and passing sarcastic judgments in the next.Imagine a week of Bigg Boss jammed in to a 20 minute show.

But makes 'Welcome…' a fun show to watch is to witness some off-screen madness from our favorite celebrities and the one liners! The narration was well scripted, while Manoj Tiwari's confusion was entertaining. (Side note: " la Carte… Yeh Chinese Hai Kya" was hilarious.)

Verdict: 'Welcome… Baazi Mehman Nawazi Ki' is a fun, entertaining reality show. The clichd conflicts could be toned down. Perfect choice of celebrities and a fresh new format for the small screen makes it worth the watch.  Screaming Critics gives 'Welcome…' ***1/2 and a B+ Grade.

What did you think of the show? Catch 'Welcome… Baazi ehman Nawazi Ki' on Life Ok, Mon-Sat at 10 pm.

well i think it was a good move by the production house and the channel. they were successful in creating the hype by bringing in ram kapoor as a host but his role is not as much as we thought it might be.

secondly another tramp card was sanaya irani, they new her popularity after her previous show closure and how her fans were waiting for her to see onscreen and making her the first host celeb though it was slightly negative for her as she had no clue about the guest and their likings, but the channel got a pretty good start. i am sure the TRP will be rocking but i wish they made it more crisp and concentrated more on the host celebrity rather then the guest celebs.

lets see how they manage in future. the real drama will begin next week but i am sure they will have good back up plan with other popular faces...
