Remember a time when the mentors themselves used to get
competitive near the finals because they wanted their OWN gharana to win, and not the most deserving candidate? They would badmouth other contestants just to put their own over.
I'm awestruck from seeing their honesty this season, especially from Sajid-Wajid. All of the mentors on the show this season were exactly what their title represents: they're MENTORS, not leaders or captains like we've seen in the past.
If we want to talk about drama, what about Vinit's love story? That made Bisakh's love story look like NOTHING. What about the Aneek-Sumedha-Amanat love triangle... I'm sure Sumedha's parents were very pleased after seeing what the Zee creative team was insinuating regarding their daughter. A love triangle... please.
Basanti vs a love triangle.. would you rather be Rini's parents or Sumedha's parents?
Oh you don't think the final three contestants were chosen by the people? That's news to me, because I remember when Hemachandra, Vinit and Himani all threatened to leave the show
when Debojit had the highest votes one week. There was more drama that night than there was in this entire season. The show had to kick out either himani or hemachandra as they were BOTH in Aadesh Shrivastav's gharana.
Guess what, the final three that season were ALL from 3 different gharanas.
Yet again another case of selective amnesia.
ummm first of all looking at the facts.......the ratings of hte show were the worst compared to C 05, and C 07..........The public at large didn't connect with the show, and from Zee's perspective that's what's most important............In terms of the show being about music, this was the worst season when it comes to feedback from the judges.............Paaji's standard response to every performance was either Chak de Fatte or Rab Rakkha........Sajid/Wajid didn't provide any meaningful feedback to the contestants and neither did Shekar/Vishal........the judges were on stage performing more then the contestants were.........Paaji was snatching microphones from contestants every chance he got...........Sajid/Wajid were on stage hugging contestants multiple times in an episode for no apparent reason..........Shekar/Vishal were muted in their feedback as well...........In terms of love drama, let's see we had Bisakhs's love story, we had Rini's wedding.....
We had contestants being encouraged by mentors to focus on body building and wrestling matches on stage rather then singing......
This season by far was the cheapest and lackluster season of recent memory........You mentioned how parents would feel........How would parents of Sniti, Abhilasha, Rini, Sugandha etc feel seeing that their daughters were pounced upon by Sajid/Wajid on stage for hugs every two minutes...........
I don't recall Himesh, Aadesh, Shankar etc. hugging contestatns, snatching mics from contestatns, performing in every episode, etc.........What's the point of having judges on stage if all that they are concerned about is performing themselves, not providing any feedback, hugging female contestants, and engaging in cheap humor as was the case this season...........
The facts are the facts, the judges killed the show this season and turned a lot of people away as evidenced by the low ratings..........
