Harsha Vardhan commented on Facebook: "Sameer, katthi mahesh... koncham entertainment ki reasons avvochchu (conditions apply).. nobody else according to me... absolutely... nobody else... Mostly this show will try to grab audience attention with some unwanted emotional drama and stupid (designed) fights and loud screaming quarrels... ufff.. and all I pity is those souls with ridiculous free time who are gonna contribute trp and revenue to such stuff.. And again... all said and done... there's no, never, will be anyone close to.. .... NTR Without you boss... big boss would have faced big loss... (right from first episode) period..!!!"
Meawhile some audience found Jr NTR too loud. @BleedPawanizm wrote: "Highly irritating. Just can't understand why JrNtr shouts unnecessarily. And those B Grade contestants are huge let down. #BiggBossTelugu."
However, the experts think the format of Bigg Boss is new to Telugu audience and it might take a while to catch on. Though some contestants disappointed few fans, Jr NTR's debut has surely evoked an interest across the board.
