Excellent post pari, here is my analysis
To begin with, i was quite disappointed, it wasn't what you call a grand finale act. and This grand finale was a total role reversal. Whatever jalwa was famous for was done by josh and whatever was josh's strong points were executed by jalwa, and if that was done intentionally or not, i donot know.
group act:Jalwa: umm good, but thats not something you do on a finale, you know, kishore, the whole time was not dancing( i read somewhere he had an injury, that maybe possible)
Josh: Josh on the other hand was really good, something new and good.
Duos: Umm, i read somewhere there will be a dharmesh vandana duo, where dharmesh replaces kishore after he sustained an injury, but didn't see it, also they only showed 1 duet from each team, so i am confused with the marks and the sudden change of format.
Mayuresh and bhavna: beautiful, extremely difficult act done beautifully.
Punit and amrita: a very disconnected act, they were both brilliant separately, but it wasn't a duo, and honestly, i thought with such a nice prop something would be done, but it wasnt, and amrita looked like giving effort when he climbed the prop up. But never, never , ever i thought ammu will be paired with punit, they were doing quite good, atleast emotional connections, and i really liked what i saw,but i think they lacked rehearsals.
prince: he was good in what he did, so he forgot, everyone has a bad day once in a while, forget it and move on. he forgot , his error, give him less marks, why hype it. i really don't understand, this guy has great potential, the masters are ruining it by deifying him, come on, and dada, his first part, picture flop hone se talent flop nahin hota was good to hear, the second part, main apko 10 main se 20 dunga, i was seriously
Dharmesh: umm, this really reminded me of his audition, his gore gore gal, he was really good. He was excellent. Jalwa did go all out on solo's it seems.
Siddesh: his beginning was fantastic, that guy really knows how to work expressions, his bholebhala troubedar expression really was nice, but the dance was a huge huge disappointment, i will take even his female dance over this anytime, not to mention his extraordinary dance with only lyrics.
Punit: i made a post myself for him, you guys r most welcome to comment there
never in my life i thought he would do soemthing like this, and man he was beautiful, i think he saved his best for the last :P
kruti: I love her, but what a disappointment, what a huge disappointment. The prop was nice and ok it was difficult, understood, kudos for trying it, but the steps? she repeated steps over and over, specially the back flips she did over and over again to go from left to right. The best was only when she does bhim drinking blood, that was the kruti we know, but else i am really disappointed with her. where was the classical dance she does so famously?Her rudra tandav, i will take that anyday.
Now i am beginning to think, either our expectations have risen huge, or maybe we were making more out of whats not there.
In jdj4, sushant singgh rajput took the same song and same theme , Mahabharat, and performed an amazing performance in it, and it was Chhau. As a trained jazz dancer, he did a much much better job on it than what kruti did today, and i am most definitely not a sushant fan.
vrushali: Another disappointment, why couldn't she do a classical or semi classical, whats wrong is doing them, why do u always have to go for bollywood, she was good, no one can say anything about her expressions, just the right amount in the right place, but really? nothing better. this was good, lots of dancing was there, but I have never seen her doing a bharatnatyam on stage! why is she so scared to flaunt what she probably does the best? I really expected her to do something really really good.
Jai: i guess he was trying to atone for his last week's debacle. he was successful .what he did on the balley bars was extraordinary, and he did lose his balance while landing on the trampoline, but overall his performance was really really good.
Amar: umm, although not a GF standard act, kudos to him fro trying something new. He never did an aerial act before and he was quite good i should say. i liked some of his moves, postures, transitions, and whatever marks he deserved was well earned.
one word Amazing. all 4 of them were equally good. specially Dharmesh and parvez, OMG they were so cool, and the pne part where prince climbs over siddhesh and dharmesh over pervez, that was amazing and hilarious and beautiful.
I have a special corner for D and Parvez, but Siddhesh and prince were amazing, their duos were a little disconnected imo, but it was the saving grace of the whole GF
