Is Kangana Ranaut's Lock Upp living up to expectations?

New Delhi:

Kangana Ranaut managed to build the anticipation high around her show Lock Upp ever since its announcement. With gritty promos and exciting trailer, it was expected that the show will bring something never-seen-before on the reality table. However, what audience got was another show filled with seemingly staged fights and mud sledging. While Kangana, sharing the synopsis of the show, mentioned that Lock Upp is not your another bhai show, we rarely seen anything happening in the hostage show that we haven’t already seen in Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss. From contestants going overboard to exempt themselves from elimination to the host’s attempts to appear all mighty, Lock Upp is neither innovative nor tolerative. 

On comparison with Bigg Boss, show’s producer Ekta Kapoor, at a trailer launch event, said, ““All captive realities all over the world get compared with each other and this is a captive reality. It’s like saying did you ever get scared because one soap opera got compared with the other? There’ll be 10 shows, we will see them as same stories. But they have all worked on their own differences.”

Ekta added, “There is going to be constant comparison. People will say stuff. But captive reality and original captive reality will also have its differences. Aap dekhiye kitna alag hoga.”

Recently, Karanvir Bohra, who has been eliminated from the show twice, recently said that Lock Upp is better than Bigg Boss. “My experience in Bigg Boss wasn’t as good as my experience in Lock Upp was. I loved Lock Upp. The actor revealed that in Lock Upp, no one judged him. “There is nobody judging me. Mai joh sahi karta hu, joh galat karta hu – mujhe bola jata hai ki woh aap deal karo use, you deal with it. So it has been evolving for me as a human being. In Bigg Boss I used to get judged”, he said. 

Kangana often takes to Instagram to share streaming data of the show and claims it has thrashed all viewership records. However, we rarely see social media buzzing with Lock Upp gossips. In fact, many social media users have also complained about the low sound quality of the show. However, the show still has a long way to go and it would be interesting to see what more Lock Upp has in store. But so far, the show hasn’t been living up to the expectations.
