One of the most anticipated dance reality shows, Nach Baliye, made its seventh season premiere last night (April 26, 2015). It was lackluster, to sum up. It lacked the basic element a reality show needs, ‘the tadka’ factor. We tell you five things that went wrong with the show.

Take a look:

Judges from Varied Fields:

It’s okay to introduce judges from various fields, but a bestselling author commenting on your dancing skills is simply unbelievable! Chetan Bhagat himself looks uninterested in the whole process, while the dimply Preity Zinta is cashing in on her zingy vibe, and Marzi Pestonji seems to carry on his DID hangover. We are inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt and see how the show progresses in the future.

Drama Overdose:

We are not against love overdose on reality shows, but showing us too much of drama when it’s not necessary can put us off. Like the episode last night, there were many plots to the dance show, what with a couple eloping, another couple being friends for over a decade and a couple from another reality show…uff. Give us a break, already! We want to watch then dance…not do ‘too much’, which the show is supposed to be.

Hosts Lack Chemistry:

For a show that keeps talking about chemistry among the couple, there’s a glaring absence in the chemistry between the hosts (Rithvik Dhanjani and Karan Patel). They seem like they were forced to stand and make small talks. Once again, we will give them some time to settle in before we start judging them. But it’s true that their skills could be polished further to make the dance reality show a fun affair. They might want to take cues from their counterparts from Jhala Dikhhla Jaa. Ahem.

Preity’s Scoring System:

We understand that she wants to come across as an awesome judge who’s loved by all, but her confusing scoring system is not going to land her that tag. She was rather lenient and sometimes unfair when giving points to the participants. Again, we are sure that she would pick up the intricacies of the judging in the weeks to come.
