I talked about both solo and duets in my earlier post - read it again! I listed the duets I had liked - of the pairs performed!! Smile

Kruti's forte was Indian Classical, that too Bharatanatyam, so obviously Terence had to make her do styles outside that forte, since she cannot just do BN numbers each week, and BN is not Terence's style either! So in my eyes Kruti got the most opportunities to learn many different styles from Terence when she was never trained in any of them!! He gave her all that because he was confident that she can do all that well, the same way she did BN.. Anything Terence would have done for Kruti would have been experimentation since both of them had two entirely different styles as their forte - Indian Classical and Contemporary/Ballroom!!

Terence has done duets for Amar and Kruti too, and I think they were fantastic too, and I loved the Bhojpuri salsa as well as the Tango!! Amar-Shakti duet was there in week one when Kruti-Vandu duet was also there. Second week it was Shakti-Vandu and Amar-Kruit-Parvez since Ameeth was eliminated and TKT had only five. Amar-Shakti were a perfect match for duets as they could create magic together; I dont think if the same acts were done by another pair, the same magic would have happened!! Jack and Kruti could create better magic than Amar and Kruti!!

I agree with you on that Terence knew Shakti's strengths more since she was his student for three years and Kruti was new and fresh for his team. Terence has turned not-so-good dancers to great dancers, and I am sure if Kruti had stayed, she would have become an extra-ordinary dancer too, but our public has the reputation of not voting for classical dancers!!


aku lets simply agree to disagree hereLOL

u think kruthi got an opportunity to learn different styles. I think he experimented with her....if shampa is indeed terrence's right hand, he could have given kruti stronger choreo's in kruti's forte/..and Im talking exclusively from what ive seen shampa do for jai/sushant

shakti...i dont knw how u rate shakti's indian performances..i think they were a mess...and that is probably because it was not terrence's forte...however terrence's choreo for alisha on silsila was awesome...terrence was somehow weaker in the indian section in DID2...or atleast that is my opinion..nobody beats him in his contemporary

kruti i think is an extra ordinary dancer ..atleast the way she adapted to the tango was marvelous...i personally rate kruti better than shakti



NP!!! LOL

Shampa was a student at TLCDC, and her earlier training before that was in Classical, I agree. But Kruti was already trained well in Classical that she could do her own choreography if required; she was qualified enough to be a classical dance teacher. Honestly I loved most of Kruti's acts, and some even more than Shakti's or Vandu's, so I dont see the kind of difference you are talking about.. Maybe that I was too obsessed with Kruti and voted for her too!! In fact the very first jazz that Kruti did with Vandu was extra ordinary, so TL might have felt very confident in her that she could do any style outside her forte, and he was right too in my pov..

Each mentor is supposed to showcase their skills more and that's why they have picked mentors from three different styles for the show. They take up challenges for other styles too, in order to make their dancers perform outside their own forte as well as master's forte.. Alisha's classical act had a lot of input from Vrushali and Terence himself acknowledged that in that episode. Even Kruti did a NB act that was out of this world, put together by her BN gurus! I remember Vrushali's semi-classical (salaam ishq), Vandu's semi-classical in WC round, and Shakti's Kathak - these were superb for me. Shakti's BN wasnt as strong as Kruti's, which was expected; the same way Alisha couldnt pull it as well as Vrushali could have.. Kruti's semi-classical kind of version did for a kasauti round was also mind blowing. Also the Satyam Shivam act she did during her elimination week was awesome!!

Last part, I agree! I wanted Kruti to stay to the finale, and even voted for her, but what to do, our desi janta dont vote for classical dancers!! Obviously Vrushali was better than Alisha but she was eliminated prematurely too! Same happened to Tashu and Amrita, when Amrita was the best in GKG without doubt!

D was also a WC contestant, Mihir! Tongue Amrita would have made it from mega audition, she deserved it and we all know that.. Geeta's partiality to her assistant Teena got Amrita out that time.. Amrita proved how good she is, and she was the best in GKG..

DC phrase was meant in the sense of his own style -- hip hop and keeping the beats when he choreographs himself - in other words, I think TL implied that D himself choreographed it when Geeta wouldnt admit that!! So in terms of choreographing for himself in his own style, D is extremely good, I agree. That's why I always loved his own works but not Geeta's acts for him!

LOL I totally meant to say Stand-by...idk why I said wild-card coz usually alot of good contestants come in from wild-card Wink 

anyway I don't think u saw the episode where TL calls D-sir "DC of dance" ...there was no hip-hop that day, infact D-sir didn't even perform that day so idk what u talking about Confused
