After the brilliant performance of US girl Mauli Dave last Saturday, the expectations from SRGMP C2007 show had gone up a bit for the viewers. Dashing the high hopes, the fare churned out by Zee this week on SRGMP turned out to be extremely dissapointing. Though the missing spark of the show is understandable as it has just started and everyone is trying to settle down but what to say about the pathatic performances by the contestants and the non-stop drama created by few mentors especially Himesh! Even though the drama was expected but seems this time round it started too early and with the judges also jumping in, somehow it gave an impression of a totally scripted reality show!! If drama is the key word, then why watch a reality show, why not watch the family drama’s instead !

Besides the drama, some of the mentors were over critical and condescending, undermining the confidence of the already nervous participants. Even judges at times were taunting. I am yet to understand the comments made by Ashaji on Koyal’s performance. No doubt Koyal gave the worst performance with the song “Rock Me Baby” but Ashaji was giving more importance to the lyrics of the song rather than making the actual abysmal performance as the reason for their judgment.

Every contestant failed to impress this week. The ones, who got through, did so, by just sheer luck. After the Friday’s episode, the Saturday’s one was marginally better. But on the whole their performance is not worth speaking of. This platform has produced some really good singers and I just hope these contestants don’t reduce the standard of this huge platform.

Finally the winner of this week, even though eliminated, was Yogi (Yogendra). Although he had to face so much flak from his own mentor Himesh, he went off from the platform with full grace and received a standing ovation from all. The highlight of the whole week’s show perhaps was the last few words of Yogi and his father’s singing “agar tum na hote”. That was the only real part it seems and it touched the heart of the millions watching it. One question to ponder after seeing Himesh’s reaction this week is, if Himesh actually had so much reservation against Yogi, then why did he choose him in the first place? It actually makes you wonder what this mentor has up his sleeves this time – (or under his cap?). Has it got to do anything with the introduction of the Ekalavya Gharana, which is nothing but a mystery to the viewers at the moment?

So summing up in a nutshell, this week’s show was totally mediocre and disappointing. The songs selected were not right for the participants, the performance was absolutely ordinary, none of the songs rendered touched the heart and drama was galore. Hopefully next we might get to watch some good performance with the Pakistani singers and everyone’s favorites just now – Mauli Dave.

IBserenity 15 years ago Wow, very well written!
I agree with the Ashaji comments...she doesn't speak much english so the only thing she couldv'e thought was that the song was bold and in english...i don't think that's a criteria to judge someone's singing...infact it's a personal bais...but let's see wht happens, maybe HR will tone down the drama a bit.

vasamv 15 years ago Perhaps HR is trying to promote Yogi in his own disorted style.Yogi is really Achha admi,but what has it to do with singing? That is the real Brahmastra from HR.
