I strongly agree with everything you've said. Sushant portrayed a part of himself in ALL his performances....
His patriotism in his teen ka tadka (he has said in many articles before about his views on the country, he teaches little poor children, he said his proudest moment was his performance in commonwealth games etc.)
His thoughts about his mother--- thanks to ZNKD, we know very well that Sushant is very sensitive about his mother and the whole thing was no TRP drama or vote seeking attempt(as some on this forum claimed)
His humourous side (like in L n P act)
His fascination with Madhuri... (he has always said in interviews that Madhuri is his favourite actress.)
His martial arts and the concept - Guru hamesha bada hota hai--- (his frequent references to his teacher Shiamak Daver and how he was proud to train under him)
His respect for our culture and presenting it in a creative manner (Mahabharata act)
and so much more. Your post is bang on correct and I LOVE IT! No other person has used this stage to the optimum as he did.
I had not replied in this thread properly as of now, cos I could not decide which was SuMpa's best performance... (which I asked everyone to state)... but your post made me answer back.
I will come up with a detailed writeup about this jodi later.
Sorry I didn't get a chance to come earlier. I actually just saw the finale now only too.
Looking forward to your detailed post. :) But totally, I can find something I absolutely loved from all of Sushant and Shampa's performances too. Actually even though he didn't score well in the first performance, I was drawn to him from that performance only. His first presence on the Jhalak stage only told me how much this guy stood above the other contestants. He just had that confidence, that personality, that ENERGY! A true performer right there! In fact, some times I felt that he even overshadowed Shampa who of course is a mind-blowing dancer and choreographer...but it's just Sushant's stage presence, energy and confidence that makes you WANT to watch him when he's on stage.
And then of course each performance of his after that has been simply awesome. He's amazed and touched hearts with his performances. Otherwise, Jhalak is a pretty mediocre dancing reality show..but Sushant and Shampa really brought up the level of this show!
Talking about my favourite performances of his, I think mine is def. the Mahabharata one. I just think it's so genius. And I love the Madhuri..o re piya and the ma-beta ones because they are just so soul touching. I love both the songs 'o re piya' and 'lukka chupi' too, they are SUCH soulful songs...and dance performances doing complete justice to such awesome songs makes me SO happy and touched. It's really not easy to capture the essence of such amazing songs such as these I feel. But with Sushant's honest emotions and Shampa's awesome choreography, these two did full justice to these songs!
Of course the concept and their interpretations of these songs made them that much better. These two are the performances that make me smile or tear up or both. Just so impactful.
Oh I also loved the teen tadka performance. I absolutely LOVE the layers this performance had. And the use of costumes with the concept. SO genius. I also loved the dhoom tana performance because even in a simply bollywood act...with pretty classic steps and you know a song to which we've seen SO many performances...even despite all that Sushant completely owned the stage in that performance. Like I think Mona said this...he's just a visual treat to watch on stage. lol Damn I should've added that to my quotes wali post.
But man, I have too many favourites from Sushant and Shampa. Too hard to choose just one. Just love these guys. Bless them for giving us such awesome and memorable performances all season. Hope they go far in their careers/life...they're way too talented and creative!
