The themes for this week were - HR special and Mahaguru’s special
respectively for the two days. We heard some of the good compositions
of Himesh Reshamiya and the Mahagurus and they sure added to the tempo
of the show. As we know anything free is worth having and Friday Himesh
got the free license, this time to sing almost every song of his that
the contestants sung. Rajesh Roshan was a little more forthcoming with
his comments, but he still has not given any good advice to the
participants on how to improve. Khayyam saab is still the same,
providing the “Xerox Copies” of the other mentor’s comments.
Performance wise, the contestants are improving and we got to see some really good performances. Friday’s show stealers were Junaid, Musarrat, Saberi and Poonam. On Himesh’s request, Junaid made ID dance to his tunes and what a cute dance that was! The ones who failed miserably were Brijesh, Anita and the viewers and mentors favorite Mouli! Poonam and Mussarat made it to the Agnipareekhsha round while Anita and Brijesh got eliminated.
Anita atleast has a valid reason of not being 100% well, but what happened to Mouli? It seems she is proving to be a one time, one song hit. Again this week both her performances were not upto the mark. Infact her performance on Saturday was below par when compared to Anita. But looks like the “Mouli Magic” after her repeat performance of Maiya Maiya worked on this round’s judges too and she was into the next round.
Vishal-Shekhar decided to follow the same path as their co-mentors and offered Junaid and Saberi singing contracts. How can the show end without some spat between Vishal and Himesh. Again Vishal took up the versatility issue after Mouli’s performance. But it was interesting to note the advice given by Vishal to Mouli. According to him, Mouli should sing songs with tempo. Now I fail to understand why he was objecting to Himesh’s view point that only fast numbers suit Mouli and she should stick to that!! Also he indirectly said the same thing now that she should stick to one genre of songs that suits her. When they are both saying the same thing, then what is the debate on versatility about?
The week also showed too much of emotional angle in the show. Started with Himesh, then Poonam and finally ended at Brijesh’s life. With Bipin Reshamiya as the guest on Friday many new facts on the face behind the “Topi” got revealed to the viewers. It told the viewers why this Face behind “Topi” was always fighting for not just his own but other’s “Roti” too.
Overall, a very enjoyable week it has been.
