First of all, someone has been reading our posts in IF really well, all the performances today were top notch performances and dancers exactly the ones we would have liked to see. and marks update for natkhatpari
Starting with Geeta MAA
OMG OMG OMG, i never gave her much credit as a dancer before, yes amazing expression but facial expressions aren't enough and so far all her performances looked rehearsed and bland to me. but i take back my word. the inpromptu dance she dis, specially how light footed she is, inspite of that heavy body, perfectly balanced turns and pirouttes, balance, strength ,power everything in those 1 min, amazing
next comes manish, manish probably had a breakfast humourflakes, dipped in milk of wit and with a spoonfull of a sarcasm, all the manisher lines he said today, all deserve to be in priyanka's one liner gallery..
now the performance:
Josh group act: it was ok, good but typical josh group act, nothing that can make you say wow. allthough their singles rock, they cannot make it work as a team. well deserved 7+7+7+21 marks
Jalwa group act: Now thats what i call an act, each member, to begin with, got equal importance in the act, and coordination and team work excellent. remo got a lil emo overboard coz it was song from faltu, 4 baaj gayi, but their act deserved atleast 20. Scores : perfect 30
Duos: ah, kya kahe, all the duos i wanted to happen, spoken or unspoken
vrushali and avneet: Although i wish they had chosen a semi classical number, i am okay with the folk song, two classical queens together did a nice act. marks : 27( have to rewind and check once).
Geetas dance after this was so beautiful and i so wish vrushali had accompanied her in this form,when she was requested by geeta, that would have been a trt.
Ammu and vaishu: this is the duo i would have loved to watch and i never expressed coz i thought it might not happen, but i am so glad. I am so happy for ammu today, she totally rocked, and she got all the praises she deserved to get, her expressions , postures, her strentgh. she carried vaishnavi, a 12 yr old girl on her shoulders twice and supported her, when vaishavi balanced herself up, amazing, just amazing.( dont blame me for drooling over ammu, i LOVE her)
I am so glad ammu did her forte, folk. although when they first arrived, with the vaishnav tilak on thier forehead, i thought they might be doing a manipuri, but still no manipuri. Although i would have been worried about vaishnavi if it was manipuri, she wouldn't be able to match amirita then.
Vaishnavi's expressions were good, but acc to me, amrita rocked it. she just showed why its her forte. total marks: 27
PS: can anyone tell me where can i find the song that was played? couldn't find it on YT
Jai and Atul: although not soul touching like the kal ho na ho act in LM< it was good. special mention Atuls leap of faith and Jais lift in the beginning. both were good. Atul, with more tecnique and practise can become a dancer to reckon with in future. marks( m not sure again) 26
D sir and ruturaj: one word, DIVINE. the song was kitni zikr hain and it was so beautiful. only complaint: even after this act, why doesnt ruturaj get his MJ band? he deserved it, totally deserved it:
score 30, performance of the day
Takkar: parvez and prince
umm, been there, seen it, for both of them, seen it before, was nothing new, as it is, i dont find anything new in whatever prince does but he is "out of the world" and no one can do what he does, so geeta gave him 11 out of 10. I wish all the examiners in the world could be so emotional like her to give 110% percent to a 100% paper
pervez got 28,prince 31
IMHO: both probably deserved less.
would have loved to see both of them do something they never did before. well, not all of our wishes will be fullfilled now, will it??
At the end of the day jalwa is leading with a record score of 10 marks,
josh total score: 105
So i donot understand how jalwa was trailing behind unless they performed dismally in the solos, i mean bad enough to lag bei 11 marks. Well, from reality report, saw vandana dressed in costume, so if she is presenting a solo, jalwa might loose some marks, but how much?
ALso, precap was shown, where jai tells shiamak, mat do marks, IMO, it was said very very rudely, even in the heat of the moment , you are not supposed to use that tone to your guru. now i understand why geeta fired up, although it was wrong of her too.
