When the Satellite televisions first came to India, main attraction was only films and some of the programs which had quiz and other things. But over the period, people got bored and were interested in seeing more than films and programs based on cinema. In this period, serials began to enter the screen and occupied the space for a decade.

When it was come to silver screen in first season, there were lot of curiosity among the viewers and lots of people began to watch the show. At the same time there was opposition for the same too.
The big difference between the other reality show and this show is that this program judges the persons activities and how they interact with others when they kept in a house where there is no access to the outside world and have to share the common items in the house with others. People will behave differently in these kinds of situations and there will be lot of controversies. Normally, viewers will be interested in these kinds of controversies also.

In the show there will be 16 contestants and one person will be added in the middle as wild card entrant. They will be divided as team and will be given set of tasks every day or week as per the production management decision. Whatever they do in the house will be available for the people to view in the television. Apart from them the show host also will view them. He will visit the house every week and speak to them before announcing the person who will be getting eliminated in that week. Also he will be giving advice as per the script given to him and the activities of the contestants in the house. In this program there will be no end to controversies. In the season I there was a controversy when oviya got ill and got eliminated as the result. But it did not grow big.
