From retro to remix, from peppy, foot tapping numbers to soulful melodious soft numbers - every genre of songs was served on the melody platter of the two musical shows this weekend. It was definitely a music lovers’ delight! This week was an “A” special week. All the headline creators – whether be it Anvesha, Ashwariya or Abhas of Chhote Ustaad, or Judge Amit Kumar and the eliminated participant of K for Kishore Amanat Ali - all "A's"!!!
VOI Chhote Ustaad has reached its final stage where now the two best ones - Aishwarya from Gujarat and Anwesha from Kolkata are fighting out for the coveted title – The Chhote Ustaad. Friday they did stage show at Delhi while Saturday it was at Kolkata. Both the days, viewers were treated with some awesome performances by the two contestants who kept outperforming each other. Instead of Delhi probably they should have gone for Ahmedabad as this selection puts a big question mark over the home city support that one of these two contestants will now be getting. How fair is it on the other contestant who will get just one day’s advantage as Ahmedabad has been declared to be covered next Friday? It was unfortunate to hear Abhaas saying repeatedly that the whole nation is now divided into two parts. Both the girls gave some memorable performances, but what stole everyone’s heart was the Bangla song sung by Aishwarya. It is always difficult to sing a song of another language, but this girl from Gujarat not only chose a tough song, she sang it flawlessly too. Shilpa Shetty and Rani Mukherjee as guests brought in lot of fun factor on both the days.
Every show must maintain certain decorum and if that is breached, it becomes the duty of the editing team to take care of it, instead of highlighting it in the promotions. When things are done tastefully, that attracts the viewers more. Drama can catch public attention momentarily, but it cannot sustain the interest level. That is why the correct “expression” is very important in creating the needed “impression”. All the channel houses should realize this. Otherwise we will have situations like what we witnessed in K for Kishore this weekend.
