The Review Of 12th July Episode

An excellent episode except the judge's extra dramas. 6 contestants have to perform and only 4 will go forward by breaking all obstacles and two will be in danger zone (1 girl & 1 boy). Asha Ji will decide who will IN and who will OUT. But among the two contestants of Danger Zone one can use some kinda special lifeline which will be decided by the 4 Gurus. Also at this episode the special guest was Mallika Sherawat.

Contestant No: 1 - Manisha Karmakar

She performed well but not excellent. Judges were happy but also said you could do much better.

Contestant No: 2 - Sunvinder Singh

A powerful and wonderful contestant who performed wonderfully. Specially, when he sang "Bheege Honth Tere". It was superb. But during this song lots of dramas happened. When he started to sing for Mallika Suddenly Himesh stopped him and said, "Tum Yeh Gana Gana Chahteho, Wavi Asha Ji Ke Samne". Then Ashaji also allowed him to sing that song & latter she was enjoying a lot during this performance & also said your this performance was better than the first one. Ashaji also called him as a "Chalu Sarder".

Contestant No: 3 - Rashi Ragshree

No doubt her voice quality is excellent but her performance was not up to mark as she was little bit nervous. The judges also said that, "Your voice is so sweet and it's nice to hear. You voice is perfect for playback singer. But you have to work on Sur a lot.

Contestant No: 4 - Snehandu Naskar

According to me his performance was not touchy. Lots of mistakes in Sur. The judges also mentioned the same.

Contestant No: 5 - Faraz Butt

At this episode we just saw one of the best performance by any contestants of such shows. Faraz Butt is simply excellent. What a singer he is. He just rocked everyone by performing "Bulla Ki Jana". After his performance all the judges stood & applauses and ran to the stage and hugged him (Except Shankar as he left the stage to attend at some function). Himesh requested him to perform again. Asha Ji also said, you have a powerful voice and perform better when you sings such songs.

Contestant No: 6 - Pooja Goswami

Pooja sang "Mere Dholna" and it was excellent but not better than Anwesha's rendition. Basically Pooja just sang the whole song at simple notes and avoided all the Harkats which and tough parts which Anwesha did successfully. Though she was very good. All the judges also appreciated her performance.

Saved Contestants:

Faraz Butt, Sunvinder Singh, Manisha Karmakar & Pooja Goswami. According to the judges Faraz Butt was the hero of this episode.

Contestants In Danzer Zone:

Snehandu Naskar & Rashi Ragshree.

Eliminated Contestant:

Snehandu Naskar. The first eliminated contestant of Zee SaRegaMaPa Challenge 2009. There was an option, a life line to save any one among these two and the judges saved Rashi for this time.

Thanks.

Antar,
Calling Pooja's singing of Mere Dholana as excellent is an insult to a beautiful song immortalized by Anweshaa.

As you wrote, she just went thro the song without putting any life in it.

She seems to be the next girl on chopping block.

Except Faraz and Sunvinde's renditions, nothing much was noteworthy.Not even gas venting by Himmesh.

Hemant

jatin said...

Antar,

Thanx for the update.
But i wish you elaborated a little more on what Mallika said to Sunvinder and the spat between Mallika & Himesh. Did she say " I will expose you" to Himesh or something like that.
Please elaborate a little on those happenings. I am really feeling bad for having missed this episode for JJWSS finals.

jatin said...

I manage to hear Faraz singing "Bulla ki jaana main kaun".
He was mind-blowing, he has a powerful voice,really a paisa-vasool performance. This is my favourite song.
This guy will make it big, he can become a big punjabi pop star.

Neelakshi said...

yeah, pooja's rendition isn't even close to anwesha's. But i liked maniha the best.and among guys Sunvinder and farz- a close tie.
hmeant, did you see aishwarya's and anwesh'a performances on saturday. the only good part of the show

Hemant said...

neelakshi,

I did see Anweshaa's performance along with aishwarya on JJWSS.

As usual Anwesha made an ordinary song a pleasure to hear. I could see Rahul struggling to give the same quality of delivery of the song in which he could succeed only 75 percent of Anweshaa.
aishwarya was good but thats because she was in her comfort zone.

Hemant

Antar said...

Hemant & Neelakshi,

I only mentioned it was excellent but not better than Anwesha's one. Anwesha is just a God gifted talent rare to watch. She is superb. Even once I also mentioned at JJWS blog among all the contestants of any level, till now Anwesha is best. By the way, both of you please check your mails tonight.

Jatin,

When Sunvinder said I wanna sing a song for Mallika and almost started then Himesh stopped him & said,"Is Umar mein Tu Asha Ji ke samney yeh gana gayega". Then Mallika said, thats my favorite song and it was a big hit, so whats the prob. Then Asha Ji also said, yeh aab balak ho gaya, so yeh gana ga sakte hein. After that wonderful performance (Bheege Honth) Asha Ji just said, you sang this song better than the first one. Also Sunvinder said, this was his one of favorite song and once when he was singing it just beaten up by his parents. Then Mallika said,"Tumhara koi girlfriend hein kiya". Sunvinder said, nehi then Mallika said, agar mein tumse kuch mangu to inkar to nehi karogey, He replied no and Mallika said, "will you be my boyfriend". He said of course. Asha Ji titled Sunvinder as "Chalu Sardar". By the way Sunvinder also gave flowers to Mallika as a gift.

Antar said...

Dear Friends,

I am also going to launch a blog on Star Voice Of India 2. It's almost on it's way. Need all of your cooperations in that too.

Thanks.

jatin said...

Antar,

Thank u so much for the info. You hv given the description so well, that i felt I am actually watching the whole thing.
Thanx Bro.

Regards.

jatin said...

Antar,

It seems Himesh is going to pull Sunvinder's leg this time like he used to pull Aneek's leg throughout the last season.
Aneek won, lets see if Sunvinder is lucky or not.He is with the best person.

Alok said...

@ Antar

As I earlier requested, pl do not turn this blog also as an anwesha fan club.

This is SRGMP blog & all the matter pertaining to SRGMP-09 should only be discussed on this floor.

I hope that u will not do the same mistakes those were commited by your friends of CU & JJWS blog.

thanx

Antar said...

Alok,

Don't worry. This blog is only for the discussion on Zee SaReGaMaPa Challenge 2009. But I also think, it's fair to compare the performances by the contestants of this show with the performances of some other shows contestants. By the way, I personally believe me & my friends never did any mistake and by not going that point I can at least assure you, by all of your contributions & cooperations there will be no mistakes either in future.

Thanks.

Antar said...

Jatin,

Thanks a lot to you also. Just need all of your contributions for this blog.

Hemant said...

Alok,

What's your problem son.
Can't you bear to hear good words about present time's best up coming singer Anweshaa?

As Antar said, we are comparing singer's merits using comparative performances.

So take a chill pill and participate instead of giving your gallery view comments.

Hemant

Sridhar said...

I saw the songs of the contestants. But I did not watch snehendu being eliminated.I think the decision is justified.In the coming weeks we will know the real talent of contestants.

Also why bring Anwesha into this.

Sridhar said...

You may be Anwesha's fans but Anwesha shouldn't be a benchmark to compare any singer.Anycase let's see how the next episodes.

Hemant said...

Sridhar,

I take it as you are refering to my posting.

Anweshaa is a benchmark as far as "Mere Dholna' song is concerned.
Just show me any singer including the original singer Shreya Ghoshal having sung the saragams (which were sung by a male classical singer) if they have sung the song perfectly.
None has , so far, sung it to the "T".

IMHO, we have the best female singer in Anweshaa for the next generation.
What I am now waiting for , is a best male counterpart from male side.
Aneek Dhar has a thinnish voice and again IMHO is a rung lower than Anweshaa in rendering and perfection. I think Abrokanti may fit the slot when he is ready in couple of years.

Hemant

Siddhartha said...

I did not like Bulla ki jana from Faraz Butt. Aneek's performance last year was way better than Faraz.
Anyway, It's my opinion...

No way, Pooja's "mere dholna" was excellent. I would rate it pretty average. Even I thought she is going to be eliminated.

Sridhar said...

I think that Nihira Joshi and Twinkle Bajpai of challenge 2005 are the best in the recent times.
Any case let's see if singers this year reach that level.

Antar said...

Sidhatha,

At first I wanna thank you for your comments.
As per Pooja's performance where I clearly mentioned that, her performance was excellent but she also sang the whole song in flat notes and she avoided all the Harkats & tough parts which executed by Anwesha perfectly. Basically I tried to mean, if you are not going for the tough parts and the Harkats which Anwesha & Shreya Ghosal both did in this song then no doubt Pooja's performance was excellent.

And for Bulla Ki Jaana, IMHO Faraz Butt was simply best. No doubt, last year Aneek's performance for the same song was excellent. But if you clearly observe Aneek's performance you will also notice, an extra pressure visualized on him. It's almost seems he was not feeling so much comports the way he comfortably sings other songs. But Faraz Butt never felt that way. He sang the song just the way the original singer Rabbi sang. Atleast I didn't notice any discomforts in Faraz Butt when he performed that. But to me they both were equally best in this song.

From last year till now, 4 contestants already performed "Bulla Ki Jaana" and according to their performance their rank should be:

3. Amit Paul - Indian Idol 3

2. Ishmeet - SVOI

1. Aneek Dhar - SaReGaMaPa 2007 & Faraz Butt - SaReGaMaPa 2009 Both Winner.

jatin said...

Antar,

A small correction.
Ishmeet sang "Bulla ki jaana" in JJWSS not SVOI.

Can u give me some details on the spat between Mallika & Himesh. It was written in newspaper that Mallika passed some nasty comment on Himesh. Is it true.

Hemant said...

Sridhar,

I do not dispute your comment on Nihira Joshi.
She is one of the best female singers that I have liked very much.
I cannot , however agree with you on Twinkal Bajpai. She is no doubt a very good singer but she has two major problems in singing.
1) she has that kharash in her sound quality which is not so pleasant to the ears.

2) She lackes that natural articulation and mallebality in her voice which fecilitates delivery of Nazuk Murkis in a song.

Her voice can fit only certain types of husky numbers but not all.

Hemant

Antar said...

Jatin,

Thanks for that correction. Basically I tried to mean Ishmeet of SVOI. Whatever you are right as he performed that at JJWS.
Basically I can't remember Mallika passed any bad or nasty comments against Himesh but at the end of that show she just said, "In this show the contestants are doing their parts in peace but the judges are not. They are always quarrellings with each other".

jatin said...

Here is my favourite song sung by Rabbi alongwith its complete English translation.
Read and enjoy:

Bulla ki jaana main kaun Bulla, who knows who I am?
Bulla ki jaana main kaun Bulla, who knows who I am?
Bulla ki jaana main kaun Bulla, who knows who I am?
Bulla ki jaana main kaun Bulla, who knows who I am?

Na main aadam hawwa jaya Nor did understand Adam and Eve
Na koi apna naam dharaya Nor did I create a name for myself

Avval aakhar aap nu jana From beginning to end, I tried to understand myself
Na koi dooja hor pacchana I did not come to know of anyone else
Mai ton na koi hor syana I am not just another wise one

Bulle shah kharha hai kaun Bulla Shah, who is this standing?
Bulla ki jaana main kaun Bulla, who knows who I am?
Bulla ki jaana main kaun Bulla, who knows who I am?

Thanks Antar. I agree that Faraz sang it pretty easily without any stress being visible. But I felt that sur-wise Aneek has little edge over Faraz. But, anyway its just my opinion. But, otherwise, your ranking is correct. In fact, I would not rate Amit Paul at all. He is not a singer at all. I don't know how he got so much votes.

Jatin bhai, thanks for the lyrics and it's translation...

Neelakshi said...

@jatin
Thanks for the lyrics and their translation.I really love that song, nd though by farmy fvaourite rendition was Aneek's, I also enjoyed faraz butt's performance. He will be a singer to watch out for.

@antar
I think Pooja's rendition was pretty good. It wasn't excllentnor was it average. It was a good effort. But when little girls like Anwesha and Anamika can render it with all the harkats in place, we do expect some more from a young adult. However it was far better than rooprekha's rendition in JJWS.

@sridhr
Nihira Joshi is an awesome singer, But twinkle is not in same league. i do find Himani Kapoor far better than twincjle and at places, better than nihira also. Nihira dos not experiment with choices of songs, himani doe. Nihira's voice quality is excellent, himani's is more flexible- she adapst it to every song. I feel bad for himani, that she recieved such a raw deal on JJWS. alals, female judges like farah khan ignores female talent except when it is that ordinary prajkata. Himani and Priyani both gor sub-tandard judging, though they are better than prajakta any day.
LISTEN TO HIMANI'S RENDITION OF 'SAIYAN'

Dear All,

I already launched the blog on Star Voice Of India 2. Need all of your contributions and supports in that also.

Thanks & regards,

Antar said...

Neelakshi,

You are 100% right about it.
Thanks.

jatin said...

Neelakshi/Siddhartha,

You are welcome.This has been my favourite song, but i dint follow all its lyrics and their meaning. Hence i did some research on this song.

Alok said...

@ Hemant Sir

I don't have any problem with anwesha. In my opinion, she & aish are the best upcoming female singers. But hw many times times the same things may be repeated. If u see ur last posts in JJWS or even in this blog, u wrote abt anwesha more than anything else. I don't think that she is the best, coz I hv seen the live show at Kolkata before the CU finals & if u see the recordings of that show, anu had become besuri at several occasions at her home ground while aish was in her full swing. That does not mean that anu is a bad singer. Every person has her own day, certainly when she performed at KOLKATA was not her day. In my opinion, anu &aish are equally good & we should respect these taklented gals rather than to criticise any one of them.When praising anu, u became hyperbolic at times. You had given position 1 to 10 to anu as it seems that no any singer can even competete with anu. These things irritate a person like me. So, Sir, don't become a second Ishmeet for us & its better that we talk abt SRGMP-09 for which this iblog is open.
Regards

Alok said...

@ Jatin

Thanx brother,

I like this song very much but was not able to understand this sufi song
as it is in punjabi.
Thanx for your translation & explaination of this beautiful song sung by RABBI.
Hope you will contribute in this blog significantly like u hv done this time.

Bulla ki jana main kaun...


CHEERS

Alok said...

@ Hemant Sir

I am copletely agreed with ur remarks in comparison between Nihira, twinkle & Himani.

Nihira is a very sweet voice which soothes the soul while on the other hand twinkle is best suited for item songs requiring husky voices best suited to sexy vamps and actresses performing item nos. Himani kapoor is an awesome voice who experiments & renders soofiyana kalam in an exotic manner. she has a riyaazi gala but i think after SRGMP-09 these singers like himani, sharib & vineet did not riyaaz properly & became busy is stage show buisness which reflect in their voices.however exceptions are there where undeserving contestants imroved their voices by excessive riyaaz & labour. The burning example is DEBOJEET, he was nowhere in pic in SRGMP-05 but immerged as a winner. but he proved himself this time in JJWS.

I hoppe that u will now understand my view point.

regards

News:

Atif Aslam Insulted Again

"We have seen it previously by Abhijeet when he just blasted away the singing talent of Atif Aslam on the show Ek Se Badh Ker Ek. This time it is the team of saregamapa 2009 which dissed the poor Atif. Thanks to Pritam for some sensible response. Himesh Finally understood the point and accepted atif as one of the most popular singer in the young generation today".

It's true. Aadesh Shrivastaba insulted Atif ferociously at SaReGaMaPa stage. Aadesh just mentioned that, "who is Atif? Here, there are more than 10 contestants who can sing better than Atif". He is nothing. Then Pritam protested & said, "When Atif sings he is only Atif. And he is best when he sings". Himesh also reacted on the favor of Atif, "Jisko pura Janta ne maan liye hein, Jiska gaana logo ne pasand kaar liye hein usko kaun rok sakta hein".

Then the Mahaguru of this show "Asha Bhosle" criticized on Sukhwinder's singing. She stated,"Sukhwinder ka gala acha hein lekin oh koi gaana gaa sakhta hein kiya. Aisey aisey kaarta hein". She was directly making fun on him.

I think both of these talents forgot that, both Atif & Sukhwinder produced so many wonderful hit songs in Indian music, I should better say for the whole Sub-continent.

News:

When the bollywood Sex Bomb Mallika Sherawat was invited as a guest on the show Saregamapa Challenge’09 for the promotion of her new film Ugly Aur Pagli, none of the mentors of the show wanted to interact with her.

A unit member from the sets of the show said, “None of the mentors- Himesh Reshammiya, Pritam, Shankar and Aadesh Srivastava - wanted to sit with Mallika. They could not ask her to sit next to Asha Bhosale who is the mahaguru in the show. Eventually, they had to make the feisty actress sit with the participants. While all the mentors chose to behave formally with her, Himesh Reshammiya passed a lot of comments against the actress.”

But Mallika Sherawat being her in-your-face self, walked to the sets and the first thing she told Himesh was, ‘Should I expose you in front of the people?’ Himesh looked nervous and was silent for some time after Mallika’s comment. Eventually took revenge by stopping a participant of his gharana from singing one of Mallika Sherawat’s songs, Bheege honth tere. The insider said, “But Sunvinder, the participant refused to listen to Himesh and sang the song. Sunvinder also told Mallika, ‘My parents were against my singing Bheege Honth Tere. Now after meeting you I know why they did not want me to sing the song.’ Mallika burst out laughing.”

According to the insider, Mallika had also given hair bands to some participants, which she has used in the film. Some of the participants were even made to wear the hair accessory. But whenever they went to sing on the stage, Asha Bhosale told them, ‘Hair band nikaal ke gao’.

While the insider from the show said that the mentors had a problem with Mallika, our source from Zee TV had another story to tell. “Mallika was not at all keen to sit with any of the mentors.

She had called the channel and informed them well in advance that she won’t be sitting with the mentors and said that she was not keen on sitting with the ‘buddhaas’.” To add to the entertainment value, Mallika had even carried a horn on the sets. “In fact, she came with a horn and asked where she could sit. Then she herself said that she would sit with the audience,” adds the source from Zee TV.

Although, Mallika had a lot of fun on the sets and kept teasing the contestants according to channel source.

Take some true or false vows

Khavengi ja nahi

Antar said...

Neel,

Thanks a lot for that. Also need your extreme contributions in that.

jatin said...

Antar,

Just publicise about your blog in Orkut communities. I really wish that both your blogs, Saregama and VOI become a success and I hope more and more bloggers contribute to your blogs.

Regards.

Antar said...

Jatin,

I mentioned earlier, both of these blogs are not only mine but all of ours. We all have to work together to make these both success. I already publicized it on Orkut community. But if you all think there are more places to publicized about these two blogs you can do.

Thanks.
