Finally...FINALLY...we get to see real dancing from ALL the contestants!!That itself is quite refreshing for me...oh its still not perfect...judges & their markings are still off the mark, some costumes and song choices are not gelling with the dance sequences...but at least we can start pitching all acts against one another fair n squarely...at least IMO! So there was no wow factor...nothing absolutely riveting in any performance, but all were enjoyable in different degrees...lets give it to them, guys!
I think the main problem in this season has been with judges scoring poor acts highly...which results in clubbing all good acts in 9-10 zone...even if all similarly scoring acts haven't been on par. Anyways...moving on to the acts..
I liked Shibani Punit's act...but their moves were repetitive & easy. Not expected from them at this stage! & why is 7 being considered bad? Maybe when compared to other acts which got 8s & 9s..but first acts are such a gamble always...too bad...judges didnt stick to applying same standards to all acts. But they are a confused lot & have to phase out Shibani soon...it is all scripted, remember?
Bharti...jeez...i cant get her reference to Remo in the beginning, out of my head
...so, she entertained really well! She is the one for whom all the exceptions are being made at this stage..but i shall not complain! It will be v boring without her!! No use speculating on her marks!!
Karan Wahi n Mohena are so easy on the eyes...but their dance didnt really impress me that much! Of course,they havent been dancing since beginning & have to work double hard to get into the rhythm, but when you are a wild card aspirant, you already know what you are getting into. They will not be eliminated at this stage especially because of the fan following...but they need to & I believe they can step it up!
Rashmi...I really liked her performance...however...she is competing against herself more at this stage. she has set expectations high & when her performance has all elements of dance yet, the wow factor is missing, she will be stuck @9s, i feel! Deepak has to be a bit more innovative with her because they are an explosive pair!
Ritwik...he is a good dancer...even he knows it...& his exuberance is endearing, but his act got full marks despite the flaws being openly pointed out...hmm!
Every episode till date has been marked by this particular inconsistency from the judges & it is really unfair IMO!
Remo...it is so unexpected from u, that i am beginning to lose respect i had in your fair judgement. Anyhow, Ritwik's was one of the better acts...
Gia...my mind couldnt connect the song to the dance sequence!it was too distracting & put the whole act in same bracket as Shibani...disparity in marks??oh well!! Seems Shibani will go before Gia..possibly next week itself!
Gurmeet & Shampa...err...i hesitate to comment on them...i am not technical at all...& i didnt get their act...at all!
Maybe i will view it again & comment...but, like, they need me to like them...
So perhaps they were stupendous...but as a normal viewer, I wouldn't vote for them this time around.
Darsheel, Avni...they finally got 30!!Yay!!
But there were minor glitches... hmm...given Avni hurt herself & watching her cry is heartbreaking...let the young ones savour the moment & their much awaited candy!
At least they arent being eliminated next week!
Isha...Cornell..hats off for putting it together in 8 hrs!!
I have no idea about the Indian dance form they were performing & not much knowledge of Afro style either. Fusion bit would have confused me if i was in KJo's shoes...but lol...he seems well versed with all dance forms & hence dishing out the marks with utmost confidence!
Remo...would like to ask you why you penalised this duo when u let the other 2 30-fetching ppl get away with errors?Anyways...Isha is a finalist! Its confirmed! Lets enjoy whatever she brings to the table...err..TV sets!
& before i conclude...I'd like to club the person who decides the themes!!! With the baton which is now in possession of Usain Bolt!
Bollywood based theme...again?!!! Seriously???!!!
