There is something ripe between Netflix and Karan Johar that has made it difficult for regular Netflix subscribers to watch OTT. The year started with ‘Ghost Stories’ and God bless Netflix this year after Karan Johar’s show ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’ no more till the end of this year. By the way, on Saturday, the audience was also tested by the trailer of ‘Coolie Number One’ in which Varun Dhawan, who was seen copying Govinda, gave all the fun of waiting for the film, but for the moment the talk show ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’ Let’s do it.
Uttam Domale, who made a documentary on the Commando School in Belgaum three years ago, has created a ridiculous show in the name of the reality show ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’. If you have seen the film world even a little, then this show will definitely make you feel real because so many fake human beings can meet together in only one industry. Everything is pretended here. If the husband does not live together, then it is a discussion point. If the father does not go to the award show of the daughter, then he can wait on it too. If someone’s wife can cry on camera for the failure of her husband, then one can take money from Karan Johar even after crying for the pain of not believing in his return.
Karan Johar has opened a factory like Ram Gopal Varma. All those movies, TV shows, OTT shows, digital films are being made. He himself would have control over some of these, he himself does not know. If his company achieves the momentum of ‘factory’ soon, it will not be surprising because shows like ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’ are not only a blot on the branding of Dharma Productions but also shows like Dharma’s upcoming productions But it can also be heavy.
The eight episodes of ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’, which became a reality show like Kahane, give you a chance to get into the personal life and business life of the wives of four stars of Hindi cinema. But, if Fabulous Life only has to live in expensive homes, always clothe, talk on everything, grieve cry of every other thing, then Karan Johar needs to re-understand the meaning of his company’s name. People living in such a fake world cannot be ideal of anyone, nor can this life be Fabulous from any corner, Karan Johar is seen, it is a different thing.
Except Neelam Kothari, no other Bollywood wife knows the audience properly. Seema Khan herself confesses in the show that she does not live with Sohail Khan like her wife, so why is it in the show brother? To fool the audience? Or just to talk about a different species of actors’ wives. Watching the show ‘Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives’ is nothing short of torture.
Oddly enough, Madhur Bhandarkar was worried about the name being stolen for the past 15 days for such a show. Reality shows are seen by people to laugh at the idiots of others, but here the laughter comes on itself that for review, the show will have to be seen by the critics till the end. The idea of the show seems to be hit by ‘Four More Shots’, something that is original now becomes less in the company of Karan Johar.
