A wonderful song 2 extremely good dancer's act which could have been sooooo good had the mirror not been there..They were wasting their time in setting the mirrors to give effect...Seriously and honestly inititally I could not even see the effect they were trying to show...and dancers were hiding behind the mirrors where they could have been seen otherwise..
I wish enough thoughs were put in to show the maximum effect of mirror by just having the mirrors set in the back and dancers in the front....Just my feeling...It took away from superb dancing of Corneli..
I didn't like that dance.
The mirror effect was good only once or twice initially when the "tricks" are played .. like when C is throwing the color on S's reflection. Thats abt it.
The half dance where each one is showing half their body on the mirror wasn't that good. It did not come across good , where in the other half was supposed to be coming from the reflection to make their bodies complete. Their performance didn't give this effect at all.
I agree, later they wasted a lot of positioning the mirrors.
Even in DID2, Amrita performed something like this with 3 mirrors and even that did not come across any good, the same time-wastage was done in adjusting the mirrors.
