Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives(Netflix, 8 Episodes)
Rating: 0 stars
No clue how this series on the “fabulous” Bollywood wives got past Season 1. Season 2 looks exactly like Season 1.With no notable embellishments except Ranveer Singh mumbling ‘Cougars Inc’ when he meets the ‘hot’ Bollywood wives.
I am not sure what he means. But Cougars Inc was a film about young guys starting an escorts service for middleaged women.
Even the guest appearances, Karan Johar for one,are the same. Bobby Deol saunters in during one of the episodes to meet Seema Sajdeh who for those who came in late, was until recently married to Salman Khan’s brother.
Seema seems to be an interior designer of sorts. She has designed a chair which her friends calls a throne and which looks like a replica modeled on the old Ambassador cars. While Bobby remains noncommittal about the ‘throne’ dress designer Vikram Phadnis is outright rude about it.In fact he is downright rude to Seema. But it seems from the interactive sessions that clutter the presentation the Bollywod wives enjoy rude company.
The vexation that Phadnis feel for the chair, and by extension, its designer is what I experienced while trying to sit through the second season of The Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives. This is not even lightweight entertainment like Masaba Masaba. The Fabulous lives Of Bollywood Wives looks like something we can do without .It is devoid of any purpose except to remind us what useless lives these pleasure seeking housewives lead.
Why do we want to see Neelam Kothari arguing with her husband Samir Soni about a get-together with her friends which he doesn’t want to attend?Why do we want to watch Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Singh arguing in front of their children in unparliamentary language? It all seems like such a wate of time energy and money. Watch the animals mating on Discovery Channel. They are far more interesting.
