Nice review for all those unfortunate souls like me who missed the first episode of KBC2 yesterday.

QUOTE
Amitabh: The real prize of KBC

Sukanya Verma | August 06, 2005 13:57 IST

Winning the pehla padao (first round) of Kaun Banega Crorepati 2. Rs 6,40,000.



Winning the aakhri padao (last round) of Kaun Banega Crorepati 2. Rs 2 Crore.



Winning the hot seat with Amitabh Bachchan. Priceless.



So you can blindly trust AB fans, media and couch potatoes to go ga-ga when AB decides to 'lock' his second innings on the small screen as the host of the hit game show Kaun Banega Crorepati.



The Big B, we witnessed on July 3, 2000, was fresh from embarrassing failures like Lal Badshah, Kohram, Hindustan Ki Kasam and Sooryavansham.



'You can't make another KBC'



The new B, we witnessed on August 5, 2005, is riding the high horse post-Black, Waqt, Bunty Aur Babli and Sarkar.



And so three cheers for Big B as he exudes awe-inspiring degree of confidence to take charge of the second season of Kaun Banega Crorepati. Or do we call it KBC Dwithiya as Bachchan does?



It was show time at 9 pm on Friday, August 1. The familiar KBC theme brought back nostalgia and a big smile.



Amidst thunderous applause AB made his entry. "I am back," declared the superstar clad in a suave Reid and Taylor (a brand he endorses) black leather jacket, cream floral shirt and grey tweed trousers.



The 10 lucky participants were a mix of excitement, nervousness and anticipation. Without wasting a second further, Big B started the ball rolling. None of the participants hailed from Mumbai.



"What no one from amchi Mumbai or Madhya Pradesh?" the actor queried.



A victory in the fastest finger round earned Patna-born Abhishek Gaurav a ticket to the much-sought hot seat.



In a custard yellow shirt and black pants, the Indian Institute of Technology Chennai student began on a predictably star-struck note. He requested AB to wave a 'hi' to his friends and relatives. The actor willingly obliged -- 'Pande parivar ko mera hi'. A warming up session with the reticent Abhishek ensued:



"So you are from Patna? Have you heard of my good friend and journalist Subhash K Jha? He also lives there."



"A Sylvester Stallone fan? Working out? Asar dikh nahi raha (It doesn't show)."



And now time to roll up your sleeves and make some money: "Pehla show. Pehla din. KBC 2 ka pehla prashna (First day. First show. First question). Lets play KBC 2."

How my KBC dreams died



The question and answer session begins on a relatively smooth note:



Answer: Mirchi.

Yeh sahi jawab hai.



Answer: www

Bilkul sahi.



Answer: Rajiv Gandhi.

Sahi uttar.



Answer: Petrol

Pucca?



Answer: Bill Clinton

Lock kar diya jaaye?



Last season Big B was lenient. This season, he throws in doubts. When Abhishek is quizzed which country is to be least likely hit by tsunami, Mongolia is his spontaneous reply. But Bachchan prods, 'Are you sure?' Luckily the lad is. It's a land locked country, he explains. Logic is his saviour and he is on to question number seven.



In the next few queries, Abhishek ends up utilising all his four lifelines -- phone a friend, audience poll, 50-50 and the new one, flip. If the contestant chooses the flip option, he can exchange the given question for a new one. The funny thing was Abhishek's gut feeling was right each and every time, but Big B played mischief. Keeping a poker-faced expression, Bachchan naively laid the trap with his inimitable suggestion 'Mann mein yaddi doubt ho to lifeline ka upyog karein (When in doubt, use a lifeline)'.



Share your KBC experiences!



It wasn't all that bad for Gaurav. The lifelines helped him fetch a whopping amount of Rs 6,40,000.



The second contestant, Vivek Kalekar, owing to time constraints, got to answer only two questions.



The Pune-based shares trading investor came with his uncle to try his luck at becoming a crorepati. 'I threatened my kids with a gun like you did in your film Kyun! Ho Gaya Naa… they went and saw the film and said, 'Daddy, it was only a water pistol,' he nervously narrated.



"Obviously they haven't seen my other movies," chuckled the angry young man of the 1970s.



Nothing has really changed. Every time a contestant employs the phone-a-friend option, AB utters in elan, "Hello, Main Amitabh Bachchan bol raha hoon Kaun Banega Crorepati se."



The response on the other end is always an ecstatic "Jee, mera soubhagya (It's my good fortune)."



As the Big B rapped in the promos and the beginning of the show -- Don't lose hope is the moral of the story. The prize money is double. There is an additional lifeline. Viewers can answer a question asked during the show and win too. There is something for everyone.



And then there is Amitabh Bachchan. The heart, body and soul of the show -- the real prize! Completely self-assured, he carries himself with undeniable aplomb. His spirited energy transfers through the television set. His wit is sharper than ever. He ribs, bullies and intimidates. He plays games (pun intended).



Even then there was nothing really unpredictable about the show. It was like AB had never left. It was like KBC had never taken a break. Just like that the star host and Computerji is back into our lives. It's good to have you back, Mr Bachchan.



Lock kar diya jaaye? Indeed!

Yes Nimii.... AB saved him with the 'Surat' question..coaxing him into using a lifeline ..... I forget the question in which he went out.. but there too AB was trying to help him into using his lifeline .... Aargh...! didnt even know Swami Vivekanand's speech.... and his friend made a real mockery of the question giving the answer even before the question was completed !! Serves him right ! sad1.gif angry2.gif abuse.gif

Waise tho mera GK bahut hi kharab hai... par AB sab pratiyogiyon ko bhatkata hai. Asking are you sure, do u want to take a life line.. Pehele hi voh dare huve rahenge aur upar se AB namak chidakta hai.

Surat sawaal pe kaaphi logo kaa doubt thaa , Anand yaa Surat .. Aeise hum sabhi ne "Anand" chune
The aur wo sahi bhi niklaa. Lakin ant mein koi bataa rahaa thaa ke sawaal galat puchhaa gayaa ...
"Anand" ek town hai District nahi .. Kya ye sahi hai ? "Swami" ji ke baaremein kisko puchhaa gayaa
Thaa ( kal waali episode mein naa ? ) ? ...

( To Preety Ji ) --> Killed someone bole to ? Khood ko yaa kisi aur ko ?

Jo Milte hain, voh nahi milte
Aur Jo Nahi Milte, Vohin Vaastav mein milte hai
Kaaran jo hai, voh nahi hai
Aur jo nahi hai, vohin hai.
Ye keval Shabdo ki heraa-pheri nahi hai
Aur heraa-pheri hain bhi
Yehin Darshan hai
Aur isi hone naa hone, milne naa milne ke beech mein
maayaa kaa samudra hai
