And I will reiterate...she lacks grace...FLOW in her dancing...don't know if that's thanks to the choreography as well since most of Salman's choreographies usually involve stunts or acrobatics...but she doesn't come across as graceful in my opinion...her face is very stiff and not expressive either.
Shibani on the other hand is much better from whatever I've seen of her performances...has a pleasant demeanor, grace and seems to have shown variety as well...Punit anyways seems a better choreographer than Salman...I felt that last year too and it was sad that Anushka got kicked out so early on...Punit was doing a good job with her too.
This season is so blahh that I don't really find it worth watching and whatever little I read about 30s being handed out like toffees shows even more clearly how "high" the standards are this season
P.S. btw Himani, I didn't know you were an NBT fan? Just saw your avi
Her forte is acrobatics so she should be able to do it well yeah, but nevertheless I did like the way it was done. Effortless. But essentially that's what Salman puts in for his choreographies for Isha na? From whatever I've seen, he cashes in on her amazing flexibility a lot.
Grace..yeah she's not the most graceful dancer here. I thought Pratyusha was the most graceful from whatever I saw..pity she's out now. As for expressions, LOL. Isha is as expressionless as they come..that's why some people couldn't connect to her performances in the beginning. I noticed even in her movies..that wide-eyed doll face is what she has and that's about it..when she really tries, it shows that she's trying too hard aka that Dirty Picture performance. I find it amazing that she's a trained Kathak dancer as well though. How does a Kathak dancer not have expressions?
I don't remember Punti-Anushka at all because they got out too early, but I was impressed with whatever I saw of Shibani=Punit. I really think they could be the "dark horses." Honestly, I was more impressed with Punti in JDJ than I ever have been in DID.
He always faded wayy into the background for me in DID.
LMAO 30's like toffees
That's exactly it..the scoring is SO bad it's not even funny
Only the judges can make sense of it..it's like dada randombly saying Kya baat, grand salute to very random performance out there.
NBT..I used to be a fan..my cousin recommended it to me so I started watching and I got hooked, especially to Mohan Bhatnagar.
Pity the show's gone to the dogs now.
Haha the avi..look familiar? I choried it from you only
That Paso Doble you posted shows exactly what Anu and I mean. Paso Doble is very aggressive..and FIERCE. Isha looks confused/ nervous to me from the very BEGINNING when she comes in...as if she's trying to remember her steps...not at all fierce IMHO. That end bit when she drops Salman and her expression afterwards..is..well I found it comical truth be told.
This is fierce. Just look at Shakti's expression near the end when she's about to kill Amar after he lets her go. I had goosebumps after it. Haunting. Isha was nowhere near that level for me...especially expression wise.
