Roadies is a reality show that has caught the nation by storm. The first three years might have been dull drones but the victory of Ranvijay and Bani in the fourth episode did make some news. The fever really began in the fifth year as a nation gripped in Roadie hysteria started devouring the television sets umpteenth time a day, whenever roadies 5.0 or its repeat was aired.
We simply loved the way conspiracy theory and mind games undid all and pushed few to the top. We loved the burly Chandigarh youth Prabhjot and the svelte and maneuvering Shambhavi. The cribbing Anmol and shrewdly unassuming Nikhil packed a punch too. But it was the village simpleton Ashutosh who really hit the biggest nail. He lapped the ultimate laurel having traveled through Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia.
With the kind of razzmatazz and subsequent TRP that roadie 5.0 fetched, it was but obvious, that producer and roadies mastermind Raghu Ram would seek newer trade tips. After all, it is no crime making the most of business opportunity like Roadies, especially when the format has really cut great corners with the masses.
Keeping all this in mind, the entire hoopla took wings. Roadies was given a rich propaganda and Raghu introduced his twin brother Rajiv for what was essentially a very difficult and intriguing round of first interview. The audience was always left dazed by what they had to offer. The uniqueness, the inventiveness sand presenting style was awesome.
The show has done rather well with the game having passed through the first few rounds of exits and ready to move on to the Australian soil. Again, the unassuming Kiri, the out-of-pocket Dev and rock-solid Bobby seem like a good bet. Obviously, there are many twists expecting us. Roadies” expect the unexpected” tag is not for nothing.
Roadies 7.0 – What Are You Looking For?
Roadies 7.0 is due next year. Already, there are many imaginations populating the mind of the audience. A few striking ideas come out as glaring suggestions. A few believe that roadie shall now travel to Africa, a place where real, virgin dangers lie. It’s all great passing through Singapore and Australia but no place brings fear as nude as Africa. Pyramids are another place to shoot roadies 7.0.
The game shall also bend towards being more merit-driven. This would infuse raw talents to work their way better. After all, mind games are all right but a small mistake here and there and every thing can be shattered. The elimination of Roop in roadies 6.0 is a case in this point.
Roadies 7.0 shall also change the concept of biking to something more daring. In fact, each contestant shall be asked to be strong in one particular niche of adventure and his performance in that particular draw shall count. Wrestling bouts should be annulled as they need raw power and thus those who are light-weighted cannot perform as meritoriously.
Last but not the least, Raghu should figure more prominently in the game throughout the show.
