^^Well, I wait for this topic too! :-) Was there one for Jan 3-4? I think I missed it and so kept posting my analysis in ulte-fulte topics.
Sushant Shampa: IMO, it was Sushant-Shampa ka usual wala excellent performance. But talent if displayed for too long ceases to dazzle ( it's a quote, I don't remember the source however). I guess this is what is happening and going to happen with Sushant and Shampa. Judges will give them full marks only if they improve, but heck, I don't even find the room for improvement. Something similar happened with Tanaaz and Bakhtiyar in NB, I guess. Well, whatever, from my side it's a sure shot 10. I loved their expressions especially.
Salman Yana- They were really good. Even with Salman's injury, they were MUCH damn better than Shekhar, Daya, Ankita, maybe even Ragini. I'd give them 8.5. And I really liked Yana in this performance.
Mahi-Savio: Didn't see it very carefully, I never enjoy their performances, though Savio is really really good as a choreographer.
Daya-Vrushali : Why, oh why, do I find it so hard to get the CONCEPTS of dance performances. I mean I really DID not get why they did that part in the beginning about two students and all that. So okay, they wanted to tell a story but what happened after that? I didn't get it. Vrushali was amazing but Daya really was not. He must try and improve. Also he does not look like he enjoys performing. Time and again during the performance he loses his expressions and forgets his moves. So my rating would be 7.
Disco: Thoroughly enjoyable. I love group performances. I agree fully with the judges rating over here. And Sushant and Shampa blowed my mind totally off. They were dhamakedaar.
Chang -Marischa : OMG firstly Chang was looking so heart-stopping-ly cute in that garage type look ki he got my 10 then and there. Then his expressions. God, I fell in love with him all over again. THE DANCE! Amazing. Awesome. I never expected Chang Marischa to do so well. I loved their performance to bits. The music that they created was too good. "Hey" was weird in the beginning but then I got used to it and liked it too. I give them a huge 10!
Ragini-Neerav: They were good. But there were coordination problems. And I can never really pinpoint ad state a specific cause but somehow Ragini's peformances never impress me too much. She has wonderful expressions, she dances well, the choreographer is mediocre, and still, there is something lacking which prevents me from loving her performances, even the one that fetched her a 30. My rating: 8. Neerav REALLY ought to do something unique so that Ragini gets her due.
Shekhar-Preeti: It was a CHEEEEE performance. Unless Shekhar stops wearing such cleavage revealing clothes I CANNOT possibly like his performances. In any case it was not impressive. 5.5, half a mark deducted for the pompous show of an ugly cleavage.
Ankita-Nishant : If Nishant's choreography was faulty and unimpressive, then, well, Ankita wasn't that good either. The hairstyle also really put me off. That apart, both were not at their best in this performance. 6.5.
And Madhuri really gave a 9 to SUCH a mediocre performance! Shocking. She should be more careful. Does she mean that Sushant, Chang, Ankita- all performed EQUALLY well!? huh.
Jive: It was rocking, I really enjoyed it. I agree with Malaika, I found it better than the disco, more so because it had Chang in it, and Chang was dancing superbly
However, 8 to Shekhar! Really STUPID. My rating: chang 10, ankita 8, ragini 6 and shekhar 4.
On a side note, I found Govinda uninterested. He was using the same comments over and over again and they weren't making much sense in the context of the performance. As for what he said to Ragini about some steps being good and others not, to me it seemed like an obvious attempt to ward off rumours of partiality, since he did not offer any constructive criticism to any of the others.
All in all I enjoyed the episodes coz of Sushant, Chang, Yana, Ragini and their group performances.
