No, DD is not to be blamed either. None of the contestants or their choreos are to be blamed. It's their vastly disparate situational factors, and our negative mindset that is the culprit. We all know what challenges each couple is facing. Keeping that in mind, we can judge them, but there is no way we end up bad-mouthing them. A little bit of sensitivity never killed anyone.
Why shud we be sensitive?
if you are undergoing legitimate unforseen grave personal issue and your performance starts dipping..your ofc folks and clients will give you a leeway once or twice and then either you will be sent on leave or out of the job..
All these folks- judges, contestants and the choreogrphers.. signed a work contract..not a leisure contract and def not a charity event for a viewer...
When they signed it, they knew wat they are expected to do..so its their prerogative to ensure they have the time and will to do it...
Now, they can't come and say we dont have this or that...as viewers initially , at least I have, given a lot of leeway to each..but after 11 odd weeks if they still can't get their act together then that's wrong..
1, Judges are not doing their job - its their duty to research upon all dances being performed that day and be prepared to know wat that dance is supposed to be .. and thus make intelligent comments rather than walking in a designer dress, taking names of contestants whom we are seeing for 11 weeks now, colelcting a cr check and leave...
They need to be bashed, thrown out for being non performers..
2. Contestants: Do they really think they are in a charity show?... You signed up for it..your duty to do justice with it... they have zero right to say they don't have time, or they don't have skills, or that they are awesome and their choreo sucks..watever...
You are getting paid for this..you are doing this for urself..infact you are calling in favours by asking vote..and then you say you don't have time? y the hell did you sign up in the first place..?
Did you think dance takes only 2 hrs of practice daily, or did someone think dance is only abt expressions and walking from one corner to another, or did someone think if she keeps ( read aarti) crying and saying she is working hard that will take care of it, or did someone think she is popular she will win (shweta), or did someone think she comes from a family of dancers, is trained she will rock (mukti), or did she really think...her choreo and her precious 2 hrs twice a week coupled with her mindblowing skills ( which she probably realizes now she doesnt have)...were enough ( read DD),,..?... and many more examples..
3. Choreo: They are here to make the best of the situation..they are choreographers...dancing is not paranormal that can't be taught.. for a person with decent flexibility or lets say with no inflexibility.. a choreo can teach a wonderful dance..
to give you a context, a good Jazz 3 minute items requires max 8 hours a week with a beginner ( someone who has never danced...ever?)...and these 8 hours include 2.5 hours of exercises and 5.5 hours of practice...and I am talking a good routine routine..
another example, a wondergul belly dance routine- on a full 3-4 minute song...requires 4/5 hours...
its the classical dances that actually require a much more hard work... try sitting in half sitting posture (aramandi or murmandi) if you don't know how to dance... and then tell me how many hours it takes you to just learn holding that position..it is damn tough!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The point is, people without information make a lot of assumptions...and then put forth logic that is flawed..
Sorry to say, but no it is not our negative mindset if we pay for sthg and the service provider does not provide..
and for the couples..we understand the challenges,,,? but for how long shud be keep giving them excuses for this?...why are they not responsible for sorting out the challenges in their performance? Why do we have to oversee that every time...?..by that logic shweta's choreo shud hv never changed...
For your topic:
What salman did or did not do in past is immaterial..talk current..
He has a project...is he delivering?..If his challenge is that he himself does not have time..then he needs to make clear what is priority..if JDJ is not as important that why bother this discussion in 1st place when he himself does not respect that show and work..and its free money for him..
If his problem is his student doesn't have time..then he needs to be strict abt it..make it clear to the student...if she has her priorities rt...
quite simple no... they need to work hard towards paychecks rt?.. Viewers can't be expected to overlook every single time..
PS: Cna someone enlighten me why are we ahving these salman vs DD posts suddenly..did sthg happen?
