This natural phenomenon of ours to discard present and accept past. Wait for a year you will say that these mentors were better. What was good about previous mentors? What did we get in the past? Himesh's drama, AS's rongte, JS's promises for selling house for other, ID's walking out. And lot of hollow promises. We used to complain about the final 10 selection in previous years but this year we were almost on agreement that top 10 were really top 10 and those were selected by these judges this year unlike other year top 10 were selected by noted musical personalities. Even the elimination order was more or less on merit. No fight among judges, every year we had musical knoweldged handicapped judge like Bappida, Pritam in past and Daler paaji this year. I dont say these judges were better than last years but they were also not worse than previous judges.We have seen lot of rudeness towards contestants in previous years but this year almost no reudeness. We have seen how the classical singers being discouraged in past while this year all genre got equal opportunity. I will not rate this year on low, yes it was low on drama and non-musical stuff.
Where was the musical aspect of the show? Hearing paaji's standard response to every performace, Chak de fatter or Rab Rakkha, is that musical? Hearing Paaji perform every episode, and if he couldn't snatching the mic away from the contestants to do so? Was it musical to see Sajid/Wajid pounce upon female contestants for hugs every two minutes like they did the entire season? Was it musical to see contestants focusing on Body Building, and weight lifting over singing and being encouraged by mentors to do so? Was it musical to see Rini being married on the show? Was Bisakh's love story musical?
The previous seasons had their drama but there was genuine feedback from the judges as well.......the mentors were arguing about the strengths of their contestants, but they weren't snatching mics from contestatns to perform every chance they got......The low ratings reflect what the public thought of the show as well.........What's the point of having judges if all they do after every performance is say rab rakha, and chak de phatte and then rush to the stage to hug the female contestants? Zee will not bring this panel back as Zee is running a busines and can't afford to have such a fiasco again.........
This season was low on musical aspects, high on cheap drama, and high on foolish behavior primarily by the judges.....
See, everybody look at the thing differently. I compared with previous years. As far as comment is concern, Diler paaji failed completely same as one or two judges failed previous years, then he tried to compensate that with his singing. Same thing has been done by Bappida but Daler is much better singer and sang different from what we have been seen from him. Not like bappi da singing same song everyday.
There was no walk-out by judges.
There was no fight between judges, they disagreed but maintained respect for each other. AS and ID never had respect for each other.
There was no love story brewed.
There was no host kissing.
There was almost no disagreement on top 10 selection.
There was no promise to singers for playback singing in every episode. If VS and SW promised the singer then they fulfilled it even before the season ends.
I personally saw less non-musical stuff this year than previous years.
Is "Har ghar mein Roti ho" musical comment.
If Aaapne aisa gaya mere "rongte" Khare ho gaye musical comment then Chak de phatte rab rakha is musical comment too.
Was Constant bakwaas of Himesh musical comment? Himesh gave only 4-5 musical comments in whole 3 seasons. He was mostly about fighting, roti, creating love birds.
Previous years, we have seen anchors performance at start if each and every episose, which was not there this year. This year was definitely more to what the show was for.
Aor jumping and coming to stage has been part and parcel of SRGMP. Did not we seee judges jumping on stage for last song in every episode in past.
No year has seen the respect one dimensional singers like Ranjeet, Sniti got in previous years. Classical singers like Suman got eliminated last season because he was too classical. Contestants got more freedom to choose songs considering their strength.
I know people will not agree with me right now and will definitely agree with me in next season. My habit is to look the thing in totallity not nit picking.
I agree with you about excessive hugs but it was controlled in later part. I am not saying it was ideal season, there is scope of improvement but we need to look at the positive aspect too, compare negative/positive both aspects of previous years, not only with negative from this year to positive from perevious years.
By the way whatever you mentioned done this year, I have seen them in previous years in plenty. Snatching mic was there previous years too. I know it can be converted into never ending discussion, because we both are thinking same thing differently. I think I dont have anything left to add.
especially about Paaji constantly saying Raab Rakha everytime.. I mean if you think "Roti" and "Mujhe struggling nahi chahiye" are comments with substance, then what Paaji says is much more.
It's shubkamna he's expressing, not false hope like I'll give you work, that never seems to come true.
