I don't know if it is only me but some of the costumes are very distracting and/or unnecessary.
For example, I for some reason haven't like Shampa's costumes from week one, though I love her choreography. Her first week (Subah Hone Na De) was a ridiculous costume I think. But even the last 2 weeks - the classical one and today's martial arts - I didn't like her costumes. I think she exposes needlessly where she can look amazing and classy by covering up a little. In some dance forms they are necessary, like a Latin Ballroom. Or the short flimsy dress of a contemporary. But the midriff baring of her last two performances are unnecessary and I think takes away rather than adds to her performance.
The other thing that distracted me, though really small, was Rashmi was wearing a Pink top under her black costume in today's performances. But it was visible through most of the performance and I think was a bit distracting. I know it is a very small thing but it is this small thing which takes away. I mean if it was only black, there'd be no distractions at all from a brilliant performance.
