I was going through the recent topics on the forum, and there's a transformation that I've noticed .. well, well, the forum has suddenly turned into a Rajit-Abhash forum!
Now before anyone gets started on me, let me clear my point. Please keep in mind, I'm not here to speak against any contestant, or criticize anyone! (and Rajit is my 2nd favourite, and has been from the beginning of this competititon) I'm just here to voice against what everyone on this forum seems to call the 'bias-judgement/elimination of the JD judges'. Now, of course I know the judges have been throwing off unnecessary hype for certain contestants. But I'm just talking about the elimination bit. In the gala rounds, which is ever since the top 13, I think the judges have eliminated the right contestant all the time.
From the beginning of this competition till now, there's a clear pattern of how the judges give their judgements, and how they choose to eliminate contestants. It's pretty evident, that the judgement is always based on that particular day's performance, and not on how the contestant has been performing through-out! For some people, it might not be fair - but for me, i think this is only right! Or else, there is no point of having bottom-3s, and making them perform the next-day - only if they have to eliminate the one who they 'think' is weak, irrespective of who 'performs' weakest that day!
Now I recall the time, when the Irfan-Karan P-Kruti spoiler was revealed on this forum, two weeks prior to its telecast on the tv. Every member on this forum was shocked + complaining on how unfair the judgement seems. But when, with time, the actual episodes were aired, it became evident that the respective contestants had been the weakest and performed more-or-less average in the week they got eliminated. No unfair or bias there, right?
For all the Abhash fans out there- First, considering the Saturday episode, Abhash couldn't have made it into the top 3 safe contestants, keeping in mind his duo with shaheer - which IMHO was weak compared to the remaining guy contestants. Now, the fact that he ended up in the bottom, with a weak performance was in all-fairness, right? Second, coming to the Sunday episode, fortunate or unfortunate, he was competing against Rajit. In general, MY opinion is that Rajit is a far better performer than Abhash, and has proved it time and again throughout the JD run. But, let's just suppose, for an instant, that the two are on par with each other, then we're left with the Sunday performance 'alone', especially the face-off, to judge who qualifies for the semis.
Coming to the face-off, their solo bits were more or less equally good. But when it came to dancing together and on the same steps, as Hrithik mentioned, one took an edge over the other, and stood-out, which was Rajit of course. And here, I couldn't agree with the judges more. So then where's the point of the judges being unfair and biased?
Now coming to my main point, which has actually driven me to make this topic, is regarding the so-called Rajit-elimination chaos! First, when I read the finalist spoiler post, I was shocked at not seeing Rajit's name in there. But then, I realized we don't have any other article on the web which supports this news ('cause when the semi-finalist spoiler was revealed, there were multiple articles on the internet regarding it) - So the whole point is, hold your horses guys, till the news is actually confirmed 101%.
Second, now even if the news is correct, Rajit fans should at least wait till the next week, and have a look at all the performances, before they start on how unfair/biased the judges have been. There is a fair chance he could actually be the weak-link of the four, based on the upcoming week performances! But to say that the judges have passed a wrong decision, without knowing anything about WHAT has happened next week .. now that is being unfair with the judges! Just because you think your favourite contestant has been eliminated, you don't have to put down the remaining contestants, just to bring your favourite up!
Ankan, Karan and Surjit are all equally deserving, and have shown their potentials time and again in this competition. And i think, everyone has seen the improvement these guys have shown in the JD run! Anyone who comes up as the winner, I would have no issues with that, because either way it would be fair.
Well, the post has gotten much longer than i wanted it to be! So I'd just sum it up by saying, may the best man win! And people, the show is almost at it's end. So let's just leave all the ranting and nagging, and simply enjoy the show!
Edit: I've added an additional point above (in bold) to clarify exactly what I meant. Because I think I didn't come clear initially, and hence the proceeding discussion went a little off-track.
