I guess I'm in the minority but I thought Parvez OWNED this takkar...Prince was hardly dancing...especially compared to his previous performances in this show...the solo he did on Meri Mehbooba and the steps in the takkar against Dharmesh were much better...there was hardly any choreography in Prince's performance this time.
Parvez on the other hand showed SO much variety and such CLEAR moves...
...I was very impressed...this guy has improved by leaps and bounds!
Prince honestly looked BORED to me while doing that act...like he hardly cared to even dance much
I enjoyed Parvez's dancing more overall too. He definitely had more variation. He was doing all kinds of stuff like breaking, finger tutting and all too along with locking and popping as Shiamak I think mentioned. While Prince was only doing what he's ALWAYS doing. He didn't even add any new moves or anything like that. Like you said, Prince looked bored himself. He needed to challenge himself a bit.
However, I will say that there are certain moves that Prince definitely does better than Parvez. Especially with the footwork/breaking type steps. Towards the latter half of his performance, I felt that Parvez was having difficulty with certain steps. Like that walking sideways on his knee step and that jump into the half split. Although Prince didn't do the knee step so I can't compare that one exactly...but he did that same half split step with a lot more ease.
I think they both have their strengths. But Parvez was definitely more enjoyable to watch for me in this takkar. His moves were much more creative, challenging and fun to watch. Prince was same old, same old. I think Prince is in fact much more trained and polished in this style of dance. Probably because this is really the only style of dance he is good at.
But in this particular takkar, he needed to do something different...or challenging for me to want to watch him dance yet again.
P.S...now I am just going off topic slightly and rambling...but I really liked Parvez's robotic dance too. This guy is so creative I think. Such an entertainer overall. And a great guy too. I loved what he said in the limelight after the whole Jai incident too. About a new day arriving after each bad day. Aww, he's just so positive. I still remember the DID 2 audition incident of his with Jack. And how he so humbly said that Jack deserved to be selected. Aww. He's really inspiring that way. :)
Sorry for turning my post into a Parvez appreciating post all of a sudden.
Just a spontaneous need to appreciate this guy came up. Couldn't help it.
