Review: Bigg Boss 5 is less grand this time around

Her attitude is refreshing and warmly received by the hosts.
Let's see how long decency thrives in the topsy-turvy world of Bigg Boss.

She's also the winner of a Miss Movie International.
The leggy starlet believes everyone falls in love with her easily. Let's see if her faith is unfounded on this show. As of now, she's playing the safe, silent observer.

The Pehla Nasha girl meets just about everyone with a cheerful squeal and tight hug. Whether she's genuine or one of those chirpy, diplomatic souls that don't waste any time in changing colours, only time will tell.

Once inside, she's decidedly at ease. More importantly, she looks great without make-up too. Still, don't think Her Highness will last too long against this cutthroat scenario.

The Nepal native is mindful of what to expect inside the house, 'Lafda honewala hai.' And yet she cannot offer anything beyond a tame response to fellow contestant, Mandeep Belvi's outrageous query,'Charles ke saath sex kiya tumne? (Did you have sex with Charles Sobhraj?)'

Nothing like her fiery quotes in print, Sharma appears too meek and lackluster to hold her own. No wonder Salman cannot resist asking her how she would deal with someone like Dolly Bindra, responsible for most of the quarrels in Bigg Boss 4; turns out Ms Docile is a brown belt in Judo. Brace yourself for similar such surprises in the weeks to come.

After a brief chat, high on double entendres, with its star hosts, a constantly grimacing Mandeep shows her overbearing side to the inmates. Her in-your-face curiosity, constant grilling and brusque demeanor, while laying it thick for Shakti Kapoor, is happily captured by the prying cameras.
Even the otherwise friendly Pooja Bedi cannot help commenting, 'She's so rude.' Looks like Mandeep's going to be regular at the nominations.

So what's her aim behind taking part in Bigg Boss? 'I am here to win Indian hearts,' is her typically beauty queen-like reply. Bottom-line: Vida is pretty. And that's about it.

Sonika Kaliraman Malik
Judge her for all she cares, the lady appears to be thrilled to bits and prefers to be among strangers than family during this significant phase.

If her recurring glares are any indication, the claws will come out sooner than expected.

Lending the show some ethnic value and variety is Kalbeliya dancer Gulabo Sapera.
The folk artist from Rajasthan floors everyone with her moves and doesn't see Bigg Boss anything except a stage to showcase her talents. Yet.

Juhi Parmar would like to believe what it really means is that she's honest enough to call a spade a spade.

Laxmi Narayan Tripathi
Laxmi is chatty, affable but not to mince words when opportunity arises. How long will the pleasantries last? Wait and watch.

Only this one's being watched by a million others. Instead of having a sense of humour about it, our reluctant 'Kishan kanhaiya' looks visibly hassled. Unlike his man-handling ways in the movies,
Crime Master Gogo is quite the 'gentleman extraordinaire' helping out every single contestant by dragging their trolley inside the house, which earns him the title of Bagwati. The effort pays off and he's announced Captain with a private room, privileges and immunity from this week's nominations.
