SRGMP episode on Friday started on a really wonderful musical note but
unfortunately on Saturday it ended on a bitter note turning into “Rage
Darbari”. What performances by both Vishal and Shekhar on Friday!!
Friday’s performance can be very well termed as a “Shaky” performance.
First the duo shook the audience with a rocking performance. Then
Shekhar “shook” his female fans into a very shaky mood of disbelief and
heartbreak when he sang a song for his wife. Not only he, but his
partner the “Jumping Jack” style dancing Vishal shook the stage as
well, with such musical jumps!
wise, it was really good this time. The surprise package was Raja
Hasan, hitting the right notes at right time, proving his rightful place
in the “Hit Gharana”. The rest of the participants also were very good.
It was amusing to watch Himesh. He was following Bappida’s policy of
“Silence is Gold” and took it to such an extent that it seemed he has
sealed his lips using glue. But seems Bappida has gone for a makeover
from “Golden Silence” to “Glittering Exuberance”. He did not leave a
single chance this week to sing or pass a comment.
Saab finally on the “final day” decided to give some original copies of
advises to the contestants instead of the “Xerox Copies” of the
mentors. But unfortunately he ended into creating a new controversy.
Mouli even after performing badly got saved because of the “Maiya
Maiya” jaadoo. But that was not to be with Sikander. Infact instead of
Joy it was Sikander who should have got the green card on Friday
itself. Nirupama’s green card on Friday also is questionable since
there were better performances. Elimination of Jyoti was a
controversial decision and that too after a good performance. It seems
after Bappida, Khayyam Saab took a makeover from “Xerox Copy” policy to
straight into “Wrong Calls”! Poor Sikander and Jyoti ended up being
“Missed Calls”. And like Ashaji even Khayyam Saab decided not to
comment on how the decision was taken even after Ismail Durbar asked
for explanations but best was to notice that like Ashaji Roshan too
opted to sneak out of the show instead of facing the “Rage Darbari”
shows used to be purely musical once upon a time. But this year’s trend
seems to be more on “face the music” shows! These fights between the
judges and mentors, seems to be becoming a part and parcel of every
musical talent hunt show on air. This week SVOI too saw some really
good performances but with it some really disgusting fighting among the
judges. The way these judges are passing comments on the participants
is also in very disheartening and in poor taste. They don’t understand
that these contestants too deserve some respect. No one is born
perfect. The judges can critic the performance, give insightful
advices, but why should they get personal and insulting? The same
judge’s fight could be seen in Indian Idol as well. Seems all the three
shows just now are not for the “hunting” talented contestants any more
but for “hunting” each other down. Talent hunt is getting diluted, more
than singing, the shows just now are concentrating more on who can make
who dance to his or her tune. It’s really unfortunate.
