Talk Show's

I have always liked talk shows since they open up a window into someone’s life, it always need not be a celebrity but any person for that matter who definitely has an interesting story to tell. It takes a good host to ask the right questions and explore a human being not in a way to interfere in their life but to understand them, as a fellow being. And according to me no one does that as gracefully as Simi Garewal. I had been a big fan of “Rendezvous with Simi Garewal” and admired the way in which she empathetically explored a character. Talk shows can be interesting irrespective of the individual being interviewed but in the interest of many it has always been a celebrity who is widely known and is extremely successful in his field. Simi began her second similar show now, “Simi selects India’s most desirable.”



The moment I watched the first episode I realized that I should not expect a Rendezvous in this show. Rendezvous dealt more with an understanding of the individual and experiences that contributed in their larger than life image. On the contrary this show is more for youngsters and is of a different format that deals with fame and predominately relationships. The episodes, though not the one I may prefer (Rendezvous types) are very interesting and Simi as usual tries to explore the personality beyond coated words. When questions are probed about a relationship several learning’s come out of them. I liked what one of the celebrity’s spoke – “Do not depend on one person to control your happiness.”

Several are very sugar coated lines but to pick the right words in between the lines requires art. :-)

  3. I too like a good talk show- if it is handled intelligently. You can find out so much about a topic or a person if the right person is doing the interviewing.

    *Great to see you posting :)
