Yes. It is not clear what the focus of the show is: food and cooking have taken a back seat.
Throughout the week references was made to Sara's broken marraige at some point or the other. Leave her alone- it's her life.
Why is her need for privacy not respected by the contestanats and the host? Why does everyone want to get to the bottom of her failed marriage? What's it to them?
This is a very bad adaptation of the UK show where food, cooking, being a host and entertaining the guests is the main focus. The drama just unfolds on its own sometimes-but this is not the main theme of the show.
In the Indian version the contestants seem to be chosen with a view to induce drama. Why on earth would you include a divorced couple in the same week ? Why would you bring them face to face ( presumably without any warning ) on a TV show? These are cheap gimmicks
What I do not understand is why the partcipants do not cater for the non vegetarians? When you have an undisclosed group of people arriving at your home for a meal one usually tends to plan a safe menu that adresses the needs of both the veggies and the non veggies.
What is downright rude in a country where guests are revered is that the non veg participants' requirements are ignored despite having knowldege of this. Again is this a gimmick engineerd to induce tension and drama between participants?.
I am very disappointed with this show.
I do not even want to get stared on the hosting: Ram Kapoor/ host is not required at all- he is a very poor host, he just opens up an issue and then leaves it half explored. I am not sure that he knows what his role is or what the focus of the show is!
All I can say is that this show is a right dog's dinner!
