I don't know about JDJ IF forum ... never go there, it is a horrible place, probably the worst forum in IF. I went there when Sanz came on JDJ and was appalled .. not even for her as much as for DD ... am not a great DD fan, but I like the girl ... and her bashers are really lowlife!!!
But the show itself is less about dance and more about stunts, I find ... I'm a purist as far as music and dance go and I like the purer more graceful dance forms. Don't find much of that in JDJ ... although the show is really grand in terms of sets, costumes etc. I'm enjoying Indian Idol jr much more ... the kids are really great singers, the judges are very sweet and the guests are lovely to the kids! Wish Sanz could host Indian Idol ... I love the singing reality shows much better than the dance ones!
I also wish Sanz would come on Kapil's comedy show ... he is a good host and all the top movie stars are coming on his show to promote their films. SRK came for the second time for Chennai Express.
Diya , you watch a lot of tv maan ... Yeah I went to Jdj forum a couple of times myself when sanaya was in the show , she was bashed too especially for the original 2 minute performance ... Buy yeah DD bashing is at another level ... It is extremely derogatory and crosses all limits ... I know what u mean abt pure dance forms ... Their is too much drama bazee in reality shows ... I have watched kapil's show in bits , he is very good and quiet spontaneous ...
I read somewhere that dance reality shows get much higher trp's than singing ones so I guess all the NB , JDJ are here to stay ...
LOL Guinea, I watch very little TV actually ... just Chhanchhan
and Veera and NBT off and on.
My husband has been watching Kapil's comedy show while he's been in India, and he likes it occasionally. Most of the comedy on TV is VERY slapstick, Indian and Western both ... the Daadi and Bua on Kapil's show get extremely annoying and OTT but he himself is witty and quite good. And of course I watched the SRK episode
... missed the first one with Deepika, but saw the second.
Yes, I think the dance shows get higher TRPs ... they're more visually appealing ... and the channels can go to any length on sets and costumes so they can be done on a much grander scale. Plus TV a visual medium, and dance is a visual art form .. just wish there was more grace in the modern dance forms, I find it lacking these days
