Bigg Boss Malayalam is a reality show based on the Hindi show Bigg Boss which too was based on the original Dutch Big Brother format developed by John de Mol Jr.. A number of contestants (known as "housemates") live in a purpose-built house and are isolated from the rest of the world. Each week, housemates nominate two of their fellow housemates for eviction, and the housemates who receives the most nominations would face a public vote. Eventually, one housemate would leave after being "evicted" from the House. In the final week, there will be five housemates remaining, and the public will vote for who they wanted to win. Unlike other versions of Big Brother, the Malayalam version uses celebrities as housemates, not members of the general public. The house is well-furnished and decorated. It has all kinds of modern amenities, but just two bedrooms, living area, kitchen, store room, smoking room, and four toilet bath rooms. There is a garden, pool, activity area and gym in the House. There is also a Confession Room, where the housemates may be called in by Bigg Boss for any kind of conversation, and for the nomination process. The House has no TV connection, no telephones, and no Internet connection.
They are not supposed to tamper with any of the electronic equipment or any other thing in the House. They aren't allowed to write using paper, book or anything else in the house. They cannot leave the House premises at any time except when they are permitted to. They cannot discuss the nomination process with anyone. They cannot sleep in the day time, are required to wear their mic all the time and speak only in Malayalam.
Sometimes, the housemates may be nominated for other reasons, such as: nomination by a person who has achieved special privileges (via tasks or other things), for breaking rules, or something else. If something very serious happens, a contestant may be evicted immediately.
All the rules have never been told to the audience, however, the most prominent ones are clearly seen. The housemates are not permitted to speak in any other language except Malayalam.
Bigg Boss Malayalam is aired on Asianet. Everyday's episodes contain the main happenings of the previous day. Every weekend episode mainly focuses on an interview of the evicted contestant by the host.

Contestants are nominated every week by their housemates. Viewers cast their vote in favour of the contestants they would like to save from eviction. The contestant with the fewest votes is evicted from the house.
