This week,we can say that performance-wise, the whole show was not so disappointing. Some of the contestants like Harpreet, Poonam and Musarrat were really good. But it looks like the drama is going to be a part and parcel of this show. Be it the mentors or the Maha Guru, none seem to leave any stone unturned when it comes to action packed drama. Himesh is as usual leading the drama enacting part and this time round looks like from “Topi”, he has made “Roti” as his slogan. Does it all sound rhyming (May be more because last time it was Himesh’s Topi all over the plate).
The highlight of this week's show was again the exchanges between Ashaji and Himesh over what genre song Musarrat should sing. Himesh wants him to sing only Rahet Fateh Ali Khan’s songs while Ashaji was of the opinion that he should be made to sing other genre songs too. Both were right in their own position. Ashaji commenting that Musarrat should sing songs from the singers of other genre to become a versatile singer is correct. But if you see from the economic point of view, then even Himesh is correct in making Musarrat sing just those songs that suit his voice. Mussarat proved that he is versatile when he sang “Gulabi Aankhein”, a Panchamda number on Ashaji’s orders. I feel Ashaji and Himesh will prove to be great debaters if they make an entry into our Debate Mansion.
Ashaji carries lot of respect of the viewers. I feel its better she lets go of Himesh now. There seems to be a very strong vibe between Himesh and Ashaji and Ashaji should understand now that this behaviour of hers, towards Himesh will not go very well with the viewers if carried on for too long even if it’s scripted.
Ashaji has been giving advises to all the contestants as to how to improve. But the advice given by her to the eliminated contestant Amrita was in my opinion bit unwarranted. Her advice and the technical explanations as to how she needs to practice so that when she sings its not nasal, to me seemed like more of a dig at Himesh, especially coming just after the tussle between the two Gurus. And to add ghee to this heated fire and a little more fun to the show, Ashaji also tries to pull Himesh’s legs by singing Jhalak Dikhlaja in Himesh’s style.
The viewers had lot of expectations from the Pakistani Singers and Mauli Dave in particular. Mauli was not upto the mark on Friday but Saturday she made up for her Friday’s disappointing show. Mauli is the singer with the X-factor this time. Here again we have a controversy of Mauli singing only Item numbers, but seems that her performance is down-shadowing the controversy. The Pakistani singers did not disappoint too especially Musarrat. The surprise package were Harpreet and Poonam, who were really the best among this week’s contestants. Rest all were just maybe okay. Still below the mark as per this particular platform requires them to be.
Aditya is a good singer cum performer. But he still needs to work a lot as to the hosting part. This week somehow he seemed bit subdued. . He needs to more connect with the audience and contestants which is more important and is lacking.. The spark, the energy that he needs to bring into the show as host is still missing.
This week the contestants eliminated were Desh from Yalgaar Gharana and Amrita from Rock Gharana. As compared to others, these two were really disappointing especially Amrita. The judgement was finally perfect, as expected when it comes from someone like Ashaji.
