KBC 10: Hey! Bachchan's still got charm

September 04, 2018 14:04 IST

After 10 seasons, KBC is just as interesting as it was when it started, feels Namrata Thakker.

It's difficult sustaining a reality show -- especially one devoid of much drama -- but Amitabh Bachchan has done it for 10 seasons.

The format of Kaun Banega Crorepati 10, which premiered on September 3 on Sony Entertainment Television, remains the same barring for a few minor changes.

As for Bachchan, his presence and deep baritone is still intimidating and yet, so inviting.

That's one huge reason why KBC still enjoys a good viewership.

The first episode of Season 10 started with the Big B reciting poetry to motivate the contestants -- he remembers his lines with practised ease -- then proceeding to playing the Fastest Finger First round.

Unsurprisingly, only one contestant got the answer right to the question asking for a chronology of India's milestones in space: Retired Indian Air Force Squadron Leader Sonia Yadav.

 

Sonia answered a dozen questions and after winning Rs 1,250,000 quit.

KBC highlighted yet again what makes Bachchan such a hit on the show as he balances the questions with enough emotional quotient.

After 10 seasons, KBC is just as interesting as it was when it started.

Do you agree with Namrata? Or do you think KBC has lost its mojo and needs a new host? VOTE!
