Oviya is the hot favourite of masses in 'Bigg Boss'


oviya_july19_image4.jpg


In Kollywood, Oviya who made her debut with Kalavani went on to do few forgettable films. She was branded a glam doll and filmmakers offered her cliched sexy characters. But Oviya is winning hearts through Bigg Boss reality show hosted by Kamal Haasan. Any publicity is good publicity for people in showbiz and as per the current trend, Bigg Boss has given a massive reach and publicity to Oviya.

A hashtag #OviyaArmy is continuously trending on Twitter, which is rare for Tamil actresses because social media has been predominantly ruled by Thala-Thalpathy fans. Although memes on Oviya are flooding Twitter and Facebook, many of them only have nice things to say about the Kalavani actress.

Among the fifteen celebrities, Oviya's infectious raw energy, ability to take harsh criticisms made by fellow contestants lightly, boldness and her straight forward attitude has certainly attracted the general public.

The hashtag #OviyaArmy sees a lot of positive comments on the actress. Comedy actor Sathish on a lighter note tweeted:

“Oviya Nadikkiraanga" - Julie. Idhu eppudi irukku theriyuma Kanja Karuppu Ennai kalaaikkirar nu Kavundamani sonna madhiri irukku. #BigBoss.#BigBoss Art director set a pirichi eduththuttu pora varaikkum #Oviya anga dhan pa iruppaanga. Don't waste ur nominations guys”. Choreographer Sathish also supported Oviya, “Shakthi cannot nominate anymore n discussing to Ganesh fake hence proved. Raiza says she will go. Once again #OviyaArmy will raise. #oviyaarmy will raise and raiza will quietly nominate someone else again without a reason” posted the Achcham Yenbathu Madamayada choreographer.

Bigg Boss Tamil week 4: Oviya's popularity grows, Namitha battles elimination


After the surprising eviction of Harathi, the fourth week has commenced in the house with ten contestants. Sakthi, who enjoys a comfortable majority and goodwill among inmates, has been elected as the new house captain for the week.

Housemates gave new nominations for elimination this week and Oviya, who has won the hearts of viewers overwhelmingly, is once again nominated for eviction with six votes. Namitha - with six votes - and Ganesh Venkatraman - with five votes - are the other inmates who are facing elimination this week.

Oviya continues to wins hearts; #OviyaArmy defends actress relentlessly


There has been a flurry of Oviya Fan accounts on Facebook and Twitter in the last one week. Various groups like 'Oviya Army,' and 'Oviyans' have mushroomed online and attracted massive traction on their pages with highly funny memes and troll videos. When Oviya was nominated for eviction on the first day, #OviyaArmy was a trending topic on Twitter in Chennai within minutes of the announcement on television. Her rapid rise in popularity over the past few days is unquestionably incredible.

Reality bites into TV pie


Harita DL cannot tell you why she is addicted to 'Bigg Boss' — "Nothing seems to really happen on the show and still, I need to watch every episode," says the 22-year-old software engineer, who watches the reality show on her smartphone or laptop during her two-hour train commute to work. "It's not just me, I happened to look up from my phone one day and saw Kamal Haasan's face (the show's host) on everyone else'sphone as well in the ladies' coupe," she adds.

In her one-room Velachery house, Chitara, a domestic help,and her children rush home for 'Big Bazaar' (what she calls 'Bigg Boss'), which has taken over their conversations. "The people on the show are famous,but living like I did in the village, with no TV or phone," she says. Her mother though is not amused —"She misses her favourite serial, which comes on at the same time," says Chitara, but adds that she is now planning an internet connection at home so everyone's happy. "We can watch the programme on the net, she can watch it on TV," she says.

The three-week-old show's gone viral through tweets, memes,gifs, the latest being a # campaign to save Oviya (one of the contestants) fromthe other "anti-social elements" in the house.


………………..

………………..

But Star Vijay's gamble seems to have paid of for now as the channel has hit its highest grossrating point in 20 years.

காயத்ரி ரகுராம் செய்யும் பெரும் தவறுகளை அசால்ட்டாக மறைக்கும் கமல்.. பிக்பாஸ் மீது கிளம்பும் சர்ச்சை

Bigg Boss Tamil: Kamal Haasan protects Oviya, exposes Juliana’s lies

oviya-kamal-main.jpg


The 28th episode of Bigg Boss Tamil on Sunday felt like an investigative thriller set in one room. Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan exposed Juliana’s lies about Oviya on Sunday's episode. Oviya has been saved by the people. Ganesh and Namitha are still in danger zone.


After an eventful Thursday night, the Bigg Boss Tamil housemates woke up to super hit folk number from Jigarthanda film, Pandi Naatu Kodi, with Oviya jumping out of the bed and started dancing, much to Gayathri and Namitha’s disdain. It was a clear message that she was unfazed by all the bullying she was subjected to the last few days. It even inspired a small grin from show host Kamal Haasan, who was watching the Friday’s events of the house with the audience.
Aarar and Snehan called for a meeting with house captain Shakthi Vasudevan to discuss the unpleasant events of previous nights. For the uninitiated, Gayathri, Namitha and Juliana sang loudly all-night to disturb Oviya’s sleep.

Gayathri argued that everything she said was in general and she did not mean anyone in particular. Oviya said she was smart enough to understand what was happening in the house. She asked Shakthi why she was being targetted when she does not interfere in other’s business. Gayathri was her usual self and minced no words in taunting Oviya. And Shakthi seemingly was more inclined to agree with Gayathri.

மகிழ்ச்சியுடன்

விஜய் தொலைக்காட்சியில் பரபரப்புடன் ஒளிபரப்பாகிக் கொண்டிருக்கும் பிக்பாஸ் நிகழ்ச்சியிலிருந்து நமீதா நேற்று வெளியேற்றப்பட்டார். நேற்று நடந்த வார இறுதி நிகழ்ச்சியில் பிக்பாஸ் கமலஹாசன் கலந்து கொண்டு கடந்த வாரத்தில் நடந்த நிகழ்வுகள் குறித்து விமர்சனம் செய்தார். ஓவியாவை அடிக்க கை ஓங்கிய ஷக்தியை கண்டித்தார். அதேப்போல எதற்கெடுத்தாலும் அழுகாச்சி வேஷம் போடும் ஜூலிக்கு அறிவுரை செய்ததோடு, அவர் உடல் நலம் குறித்தும் விசாரித்தார்.

ஜூலிக்கு உடல் நலம் சரியில்லாதபோது ஆண்கள் உதவியதையும், பெண்கள் ஒதுங்கி நின்று வேடிக்கை பார்த்ததையும் கண்டித்தார். அதேப்போல பரணி வெளியேற்றப்பட்டபோது அதற்காக யாரும் கலங்கவில்லை என்பதையும் சுட்டிக்காட்டினார். நிகழ்ச்சியில் நடத்தப்பட்ட நாடகத்தை பாராட்டியவர். அதில் சிறப்பாக நடித்தது வையாபுரி என்றும் நடிக்கவே தெரியாதவர் ஜூலி என்றும் விமர்சித்தார்.

LOL!

Do people actually watch such shows?
Its all staged and fake.

This programme reported to have achieved ‘highest ever viewership’ in the first week itself.

Currently it is on its fourth week with growing popularity everyday…and this one is the 'Talk of the town'.


Bigg Boss and brand refresh takes Vijay TV to new heights

Bigg Boss, hosted by Kamal Hassan, has helped Vijay achieve its highest ever viewership of 571 Gross Rating Points. The show is one of the biggest to ever have launched in Tamil Nadu, with 36 million viewers sampling it in the first week itself. With a 5.2 TVR (Sun-Fri) in Urban TN and an astounding 7.8 TVR in Chennai, the show has shattered all records.

[h=1]Bigg Boss Tamil week 4 updates: Namitha evicted; Kamal Haasan exposes Julie's lies[/h]
The last four episodes of Bigg Boss Tamil are the most eventful, dramatic and amusing of this season, which has successfully completed its fourth week and stepped into the fifth with a tremendous anticipation among the public.

After opening to the Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) India ratings of 3.4 million impressions for its launch episode, the show is now believed to have penetrated into more households across the length and breadth of the state. Bigg Boss is unquestionably a paradigm shift for Tamil television audiences, who have been predominantly tuned to watching mega-serial soaps since time immemorial.

When A brahmin lady in BiggBoss used the term chery in a derogatory way about slum dwellers, it caused a storm in social circles.

Social activist protested and wanted this lady to experience slum life

BiggBoss revels in creating controversies.

It improves the TRP and Ad revenues of Star Vijay.

Of course the participants get more exposure to common people and their career prospects go up.

Oviya has become the new darling of tamil masses.

She has lakhs rooting for her in facebook, twitter.

You are right.

Such derogatory remarks should have been well avoided.

She used abusive languages and used to insult, belittle others in the house.

I think she was also cautioned once by Kamal Hasaan.

Here is the relevant news items:

Bigg Boss Tamil: Another group demands action against Gayathri Raghuram for abusive language

Tamil Youth and Students Federation said actor Gayathri Raghuram had allegedly chided another participant, Oviya, using the abusive term in the reality TV show Bigg Boss Tamil.

A fringe Tamil youth outfit on Thursday filed a police complaint seeking action against an actress for allegedly using abusive language against people living in slums in the Bigg Boss,” reality show in a Tamil TV channel.

Tamil Youth and Students Federation said actor Gayathri Raghuram had allegedly chided another participant, Oviya using the abusive term.

Such abusive language allegedly insulted and belittled slum dwellers, said the complaint filed a day after a Hindu outfit sought a ban on the show, alleging it denigrated Tamil culture.

Gayatri Raghuram’s Mother Defends Daughter’s Casteist Slur On ‘Bigg Boss Tamil’

Gayatri Raghuram’s mother has tried to justify Gayatri’s verbal abuse of her Bigg Boss Tamil housemate Julia. She also claims that the others are faking and putting on a show, while Gayatri is being true to herself.

Ananda Vikatan
spoke to Gayatri’s mother, Girija
, about Bigg Boss, and Gayatri’s participation. While Gayatri and Julia have had arguments before, this time people have taken strong offense to Gayatri describing Juliana as “cheri”. The word has now come to mean of low class or low caste, and is usually used as a term of abuse by someone with both class and caste privilege, in order to humiliate their opponent.

Girija begins the interview by saying, “Haven’t siblings living in the same house fought before? Can a girl never get angry?

The day starts off with Aarav talking to Vaiyapuri about Gayathri and Sakthi avoiding talking to the former properly for supporting Oviya in the Julie-Oviya issue.

Vaiyapuri tells Aarav that Julie might get evicted this week as she is in the eviction list alongside Oviya and Aarav.

பிக் பாஸ் வீட்டு புரணிகள்.... கண் கலங்கிய இல்லத்தரசிகள் இப்போ கலகலப்பா மாறிட்டாங்களோ?



17-1500293868-bigg-boss-4th-day-promo4556.jpg


ஓயாத புரணிகள்:


கிராமங்களில்தான் பெண்கள் ஒன்றாக கூடி யாரைப்பற்றியாவது எதையாவது பேசிக்கொண்டிருப்பார்கள். அது சில சுவாரஸ்யமாகவே இருக்கும். அலுவலகங்களில் பல ஆண்கள் ஒன்றாக கூட பெண்களைப் பற்றி புரணி பேசுவார்கள், அது அவர்களுக்கு பொழுது போக்கு. பிக் பாஸ் வீட்டிலும் இதுதான் நடந்து கொண்டிருக்கிறது.


நெகடிவ் பாசிடிவ்:

பிக் பாஸ் நிகழ்ச்சி பற்றி பலரும் நெகடிவ் ஆக பேசப்பேச அதுவே பாசிட்டிவ் ஆக மாறி வருகிறது. பலரும் இரவு 9 மணிக்கு மேல் விஜய் டிவி பக்கம் சேனலை மாற்றி வருகின்றனர். குடும்பத்தோடு பிக்பாஸ் பார்ப்பதால் அதன் டிஆர்பி எகிறி வருகிறது


சீரியல்கள் டல்:

இரவு 9 மணிக்கு பிரைம் டைம் நேரத்தில் ஒளிபரப்பாகும் தமிழ் சீரியல்கள் பலவும் டல்லடிக்கின்றன. தமிழ் சீரியல்கள் ரசிகர்களை கவரவும், விறுவிறுப்பை கூட்டவும் குழந்தை கடத்தல், கொலை, கர்ப்பிணிகளுக்கு விஷம் வைப்பது, என பல கொடூர சீன்களை வைத்து டிஆர்பியை ஏற்ற முயற்சி செய்கின்றனர்.


வார விடுமுறை நாட்கள் :

வாரத்தின் 7 நாட்களும் பிக் பாஸ் காய்ச்சல்தான் பலருக்கும் பீடித்துக்கொண்டிருக்கிறது. திங்கள் முதல் ஞாயிறு வரை விடாமல் பிக் பாஸ் பார்க்கின்றனர். டிவியில் பார்க்க மிஸ் செய்தவர்கள் தங்களின் மொபைல் ஆப்ஸ் மூலம் பார்க்கின்றனர். சனி, ஞாயிறுகளில் சொந்தக்காரர்களின் வீட்டிற்குப் போனாலும் பிக் பாஸ் பேச்சுதான். அங்கே போய் கூடி கூடி பிக் பாஸ் பார்க்கின்றனர்.


கண்ணீர் மறைந்து கலகலப்பு:

பக்கத்து வீட்டினை எட்டிப்பார்ப்பது பலருக்கும் பிடித்தமான விசயம். பிக் பாஸ் போன்ற பிரம்மாண்ட வீட்டில் பிரபலங்கள் ஆடுவது, பாடுவது, புரணி பேசுவதை கேட்கவும், பார்க்கவும் யாருக்குத்தான் பிடிக்காது எனவே பெண்கள், ஆண்கள் என்று பலரும் ஆர்வத்துடன் இதனை பார்க்கின்றனர் என்கின்றனர்


சமூக வலைத்தள விளாசல்கள்:

ஃபேஸ்புக், டுவிட்டர், வாட்ஸ் ஆப்பில் பிக் பஸ் பற்றிய பதிவுகள்தான் அதிகம் காணப்படுகின்றன. கழுவி கழுவி ஊற்றினாலும் அதற்காகவே பலரும் பார்க்கின்றனர். நமீதா, ஓவியா, காயத்ரி ரகுராம், ஜூலி பற்றி பலரும் பேசி தீர்க்கின்றனர்.

It feels good that tamil women are getting away from sob social dramas of star and other channels.

Hindi channels of star,sony and others targetting women at home are equally sickening.

Serials always show inlaws in bad light [ why mother inlaws , sister inlaws are always scheming and out to destroy the poor bahu?].

Targeted audience being mostly housewives, channels are breaking their head to retain their viewers… with result, there is interesting/exciting/thrilling twists and turns in mega serials and have realised that there is no time for routine masala tearjerkers…

There is evidently a shift in viewership now….

It is nice and at times interesting to watch as to what is happening in the family of BIGG BOSS more particularly as to how each contestant respond to different tasks and challenges.. and how they overcome this...

It is just a show ....let us enjoy


The watch has begun...

dc-Cover-i14p5p92qtppod65qjblnb4av3-20170704225415.Medi.jpeg


Tamil TV is not about sobby soap dramas anymore. It is going through change as the Bigg Boss has turned his gaze towards it!
A decade ago, Tamil TV stood synonymous to rubbery soap operas with just one subject to talk about — the Tamil family. Though there have been attempts from K. Balachander and Balu Mahendra to do something novel, no show could steal the thunder from the tear-jerking dramas about families and their never-ending issues.

Fast forward to 2017. Soaps are still alive and kicking, but the present is not their golden era. Now, the craze is all for reality TV, the latest addition being Bigg Boss Tamil, which has taken everyone by storm. Be it a rant or laurel, people can’t stop talking about the show. With it, the age of voyeurism has also taken birth in TN!

Hosted by Kamal Haasan, the show houses contestants like ‘jallikattu’ Juliana — which has instigated everything from protests to moral policing and ushering in reality television onto screens in TN. We look at the ramifications, social implications and how the TV experience has changed for Tamil audiences.

More toxic than voyeurism:


These kind of show undoubtedly brings out the ‘peeping tom’ in every audience watching, and enough of ink has already flown about its effects — but Manushya puthiran, the poet-writer, says it has more ill effects on the psyche of mass beyond voyeurism. “We are being continuously monitored by several agents, including our own state. From the transactions to the lifestyle of a person, everything can be kept under a watch. This surveillance of the corporates and the government should be fiercely resisted by cit zens, but instead, these reality shows turns the concept of surveillance into entertainment.”

He adds, “When you start watching what is happening in other’s bedroom, you involuntarily start accepting the watch that is upon you. I see this as the deep psychological effect of such shows.”

Say hi to ‘Hate -watching’:


One of the major talking points of social media currently is Juliana, who was in the limelight during the jallikattu protests. Even the those who supported her during the protests have turned hostile towards the youngest contestant. From moral policing to character assassination, Julie has now turned victim of all. Everyone loves to hate her, but can anyone ignore her? This is the perfect example of hate watching, and it is new to Tamil TV.

Former contestant speaks out


Bollywood unearthed plenty of newcomers from such reality shows. Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, one such talent, was identified from MTV Roadies. So, Kollywood could watch out for some, too. Who knows? Given the popularity or notoriety that Julie has garnered, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see her anchoring a show in future or landing a plum role in a film. Talking about if these shows can be perceived as platforms for artistes, Anuya, one of the Bigg Boss contestants, who was recently eliminated from the show, says, “I think it should help actors as a platform. In my case, I am still figuring it out but I hope it will. For actors, in the future, it will, since the show is huge and it is going to keep airing for many seasons.”

Bigg Boss Tamil week 5 updates: Bindhu Madhavi's wild card entry; Oviya, Julie make peace

bindu-madhavi-bigg-boss-fb.jpg



Actress Bindhu Madhavi, well known for playing lead heroine roles in films such as Tamiluku En Ondrai Aluthavum, Kazhugu, and Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga, has made a surprise wild card entry towards the end of the fifth week on Bigg Boss Tamil.

Although the announcement of a new contestant five weeks into the show drew flak from viewers on social media, Bindhu Madhavi's entry put a smile on the faces of inmates, except Vaiyapuri who jokingly asked her how she made such a bold decision to be a part of the show despite watching it on television.

"Oviya is my biggest competitor in the house," says Bindhu Madhavi


"I'm quite thrilled. I have watched all the episodes so far as a viewer. Only when I decided to compete for the title two days back, I looked at the show as a contestant from a different perspective. I think Oviya is my biggest competitor in the house," Bindhu Madhavi said.

[h=1]Bigg Boss Tamil: Simbu reveals he’s an Oviya fan, asks viewers to forgive Gayathri[/h][h=2]Kollywood movie star Simbu is one of the celebrity fans of Bigg Boss Tamil. He frequently shares his thoughts about the show on his Twitter handle. On Wednesday, Silambarasan engaged in a debate with choreographer Sathish over the show. Simbu revealed that he likes Oviya.[/h]The first season of Bigg Boss Tamil has become a rage in Tamil Nadu. It is one of the hotly debated topics on social media too. Not just ordinary viewers, even many celebrities have become adherent followers of the reality TV show that promises to bring out the unseen side of some well-known people in Tamil Nadu.

Kollywood movie star Simbu is one of the celebrity fans. He frequently shares his thoughts about the show on his Twitter handle. On Wednesday, Silambarasan engaged in a debate with choreographer Sathish over the show.

Sathish, a big fan of Oviya, minced no words while hitting out at other popular contestants on the show such as Gayathri Raghuram and Shakthi Vasudevan. After watching Tuesday’s episode, he again slammed Gayathri for ganging up against Oviya in the house.

“Gay3 have not taken Oviya as friend instead of telling everything to Shakthi u could have spoke to Oviya . So u r showing some stunts (sic),” Sathish ranted on his Twitter page.

“Why judge? Let’s just accept the way they are. Gayathri is not a bad person or others as well, situation and circumstances make one G or B,” Simbu wrote replying to Sathish’s Twitter post.
