Big Boss has been coming on Indian channels for quite some time now and the format has got somewhat boring. There are the usual set of people in the house, who quickly fight with each other for all sort of problems, plot against each other, and so on. It is typically seen that the winners of previous Big Boss are not the ones who do all the plotting or the ones who do the most fighting but are more sober and dignified than the others. However, over the previous seasons, the amount of fighting kept on increasing. So what could be a possible change ?
Well, the serial has come up with a new concept this time, building on the concept of a jail being introduced in previous versions, and this time introduced 2 different parts of the house. One is called Jannat (heaven) and the other is called Jahannum (hell) and the 14 participants are divided into these 2 separate parts. Like many other tasks in the house, even the separation of participants into these 2 separate parts was done by the first 2 entrants, Tanish and Andy (this only increases the masala element of the serial since now there is someone to blame for even a person being in the hell or heaven part).
The 2 parts of the house have been split to look somewhat like hell or heaven, with the heaven part being colorful, having the kitchen, and having a roof styled to look like clouds and the like. There is also a pool over there. The hell part is styled to be more like hell, with no kitchen, a pair of big wheels that need to be run by participants using their hands, and even more problems such as the bathrooms not having running water (water needs to be filled from a tap outside and carried in with buckets). So, the participants living in heaven have to cook for both the people living in hell and in heaven since the ones living in hell have no kitchen.
Already skirmishes have happened between the contestants with Arman getting very angry over apparently being blamed for some food getting spilt. But there are also strong linkages, such as the kitchen gas not getting lit unless the participants in hell keep the 2 big wheels in motion, and also people in heaven not getting to lie down or sit unless the wheels are set in motion.
