@Hemant Da,

@Jatin,

Thanks a lot for your continuous updates on Big Boss. Keep it up.

@Neel,

Where are you?

Dear Friends,

As many bloggers in our blog recently made a discussion on Asma so I am raising this bar for all of you. What do you think about Asma's singing quality & performances and still deserves to stay in the contest or not?

Everyone dreams to achieve something great and I truly appreciate and respect the hard work Aasma is doing to fulfill her dream.At the same time it is also an open fact that she doesn't have the voice like other competitors.Aasma is funny and always makes the show more lively.But every week one of the more talented contestants are getting eliminated instead of Aasma.After all it's not only Aasma's but everyone's dream to win the competition and earn a good name.So I think the organizers should respect the dreams of all the aspiring contestants and all the contestants should be truly judged based on the singing talent.

jatin said...

Antar,

Its a known fact that Aasma is a non-singer. But she is very cute, she is the jaan of the programme. I watch this programme mainly for her.
Now as these music reality shows hv become boring entertainers like Aasma are required to raise the TRPs of the programme.
But from the music point of view, if Aasma manages to win this competition it would definitely be a shame and very very demoralising for other talented singers in this competition.

jatin said...

Hemant/Antar,

So who is going to win in Big Boss today.
Zulfi is the strongest contender.
It has been reported in a newspaper that Rs 80 crores are on stake on his victory.
Ashutosh needs the money desperately.
Lets see what happens tonite.

Hemant Trivedi said...

Jatin,

For all that matters and all that does not matter, The fight is between Asutosh and Raja. Zulfi is on a lower scale.

My strange hunch says Ashutosh who is the underdog, will win the contest.

Let us wait and watch.

Hemant

Rest is in the hands of voting junta.

Hemant Trivedi said...

Antarda,

who knows when the strike is going to get over?
Bhai, jab ghar mein aata, daal khatam honge aur Baniya oodhari nahin dega tab jaake logon ki akkal thikane aayegi.

Hemant

Antar said...

@Anil,

I completely agree with you. But just give me an answer, should a contestant win through her real musical talents or innocent personality/entertaining acts!!!!

@Jatin,

I think Zulfi is going to win.
BTW, you said that, if Asma wins it will be a shame. Don't you think we all are very much familiar with such incidents before! To remind you, we are. We already saw average contestants won such contests, atleast in 3 cases (So far I can remember) and they were (Only to knock at your head):

1. Qazi Touqeer - Fame Gurukul - Sony

2. Rahul Vaidya - JJWS - Star Plus

3. ******* ***** - **** - * +

@Hemant Da,

Excellent say. lol

anil said...

@Antar

SaReGaMaPa gave us some great singers in the past.From 2 or 3 years it has become more an entertaining show than a talent show but still is the best show than other reality shows.As I said,I respect the hard work Aasma is doing to achieve her goal but it will be painful and disgrace if other talented singers get eliminated instead of her.Aasma is cute,funny and elevates the spirit of the show but based on the singing talent,she doesn't deserve to be a winner. Hope SaReGaMaPa reverts to its original fame and gives us more good singers in the future.

Antar said...

@Anil,

Very well said. I appreciate that. I don't know Asma will win this contest or not (The perfect words should be Zee will made her or not) but my premonitions says, she will not gonna eliminate so soon. The next eliminated contestant will be Vaishali. My calculation is kinda,

Point 1:

From Lakshya & Jai Ho Gharana only one contestant left so there is no chance of any contestants from any of these Gharana's will eliminate soon.

Point 2:

No doubt Yashita is a very strong contestant perhaps the only deserving one to reach in the finale & win this contest. So she will definitely not gonna eliminate before finale.
Debojeet "The Voodoo King" is the fav of the judges. At any cost they will keep him within top 5. Until then he is also safe. Means Dhoom Gharna is safe for a while.

Point 3:

a) The only Gharana where 3 contestants (Most ones) left. So per the format no doubt the next eliminated contestant will be from this Gharana.
b) Zaheer is definitely going to the finale for the reason he not only deserves it but also he is the only one representing Pakistan. Zee will definitely keep him up to the finale (Atleast for the sake of International votes through SMS specially). Without a doubt he is one of the best in the lot. So he is not going to eliminate till finale.
c) Asma is definitely now the main attraction of SRGMP 2009. Despite the weakest one in the lot, she is the one for whom 90% of the people /viewers still watching this show and the channel knows it very well. Moreover, she has a great voting bank. Perhaps, the biggest one. So she is not going to elimiate soon.
d) The only contestant left is Vaishali. She already won Zee SRGMP Marathi contest. If she eliminates ,nothing to loose here. Zee brought her & Soumen only to carry the show up to a certain time and to raise TRP's (But completely failed). So the next eliminated contestant is definitely Vaishali.

Result:

Next eliminated contestant: Vaishali

Thanks.

anil said...

@Antar
It will be really sad if Vaishali gets eliminated because she is really a good singer.
My top 4 are Vaishali,Yashita,Debojit and Prathiba(it's only my view)
1.Vaishali is a talented singer with great voice.But she doesn't do any intelligent things to attract the voters.Also she doesn't always pick the right songs to prove her versatility.She should sing some spicy numbers like Yashita to prove her versatility.But as I saw her in Saregamapa Marathi,I know that she is very versatile and my favorite to win the competition.
2.Yashita is also a true talent and a favorite to win this competition.
3.Debojit may have some problem with the diction and he does some naughty things to attract the voters,but at the same time he is really talented and very versatile.If we compare the songs sung by him with the contestants in other reality shows(including the winners),we will get an idea of his talent.He can sing all kinds of songs.If he works hard and solves the problem with his diction,he can also be a winner.
4.Initially I had some doubts about Prathiba but she is proving everyone wrong with her talent.
5.Zaheer is a good singer and behaves very pofessionally on the show.But his voice suits only certain genre of songs but not all kinds of songs.He can rock in his kind of songs but not truly versatile.
6.Soumen is a good singer but I think he can't win the competition because he is not consistent enough.
7.Aasma is the least talented of the 7,but it's a fact that she is the face of the show.
Personally I like to see Vaishali,Yashita,Debojit and Prathiba in the final 4(again it's only my view).But it doesn't matter if any one of the truly talented singer wins the competition.

Hemant Trivedi said...

Anil,

welcome to the blog.
I agree with most points you raised but Soumen may be off colour due to sickness at last episode. But his range is classic.
Still Bengal is a very poor voting state.

Soumen and Vaishali are two who would be sacrificed before Pratibha.Following her may be Asma .
Last three may be Yashita, Debojeet and Zaheer.

This is what I feel.

Hemant Trivedi said...

Jatin,


My prediction about Bigg Boss has come true word to word.

Hemant

jatin said...

Hemant Bhai,

Isnt it strange, that earlier also Ashutosh won Roadies on MTV which is also owned by Endemol. The company supported their own boy.

But i am happy for Ashu's win, Rahul is the real winner. Rahul prepared the ground for Ashu's victory.Ashu's genuine tears on Rahul's exit got him the crown.

Rahul Mahajan is a real Marathi manoos.
Raj Thackeray should learn something from Rahul who gave up the contest for a U.P. guy to win this contest.
Such unity is the essence of Indian culture.

jatin said...

Antar,

You are comparing Rahul Vaidya and ****** with Asma.
If u r smitten by Asma beauty, then i dont blame u. But otherwise these 2 guys are miles ahead of Asma. Asma is a non-singer.

You forgot to mention Prashant Tamang, he can be compared to asma.
Till not all singers who hv won a reality show had some exceptional qualities which got them the crown. Only Tamang is an exception and second exception can be Asma.

anil said...

@Hemant
I too agree that Soumen is a talented singer but he needs to be very consistent to be the winner.
I am also worried that Vaishali(a very talented singer)may be sacrificed due to gharana politics.Hopefully that doesn't happen with Vaishali or any other capable winner and true talent wins.

jatin said...

Please read "till now all singers" in place of "till not all singers" in my previous message.

jatin said...

Antar,

No offence meant, but Asma is more suited for shows like "Laughter Challenge" or "Comedy Circus".

She is participating in a wrong show. Her comedy talent is getting wasted here.She should utilize her talent properly.

I think Asma should stay, she is the life of this Saregamapa this year, its not like other years where some contestant. If Asma is gone out of the show, can you imagine watching those two Bengali boys "I dont even bother to remember they names" or that Marathi singer, rather see Pratiba, Yasita and Asma competing each other, where as Asma voice concern its unique different from other singers which we hear normally also the fact Asma should be given credit for singing in Hindi when she was not raise in Indian culture and not knowing the language fluently lastly coming to other country attempting to sing in other language is not that easy, I think voters need to be more broad minded in voting Asma, this is my honest opinion, I'm not going into those details about how comparing her voice to the old singers like Lata, Asha and so forth but when one ask from all aspects in general I would say Asma should stay. "No offence to other listerners and viewers of Saregamapa"

At this stage, I really care a hoot whether aasma stays or goes.Yes, during bhrasmstra Ihated it taht she was chosen over shahsi and manisha, also that she was allowed to come in the first place when arshad/sayon were not!!1 Def she is the wekaet singer of ALL the top 30 contestants. She didn't deserve to be on saregama in first place.

Zee put her up for TRPS' and till now I think everyone has realized zee's game plan. She neither has looks like Mitika or singing like Naina or overall package like Pratibha. So I doubt anyone wud vote for her.

Still all said and done whether she leaves now or gets eliminated makes no difference. she has already created enough damage to careers of shahsi, arshad, mansiha, Mitika and naina. I hope zee is ahppy now.

Antar said...

@Anil,

Thanks for your wonderful post bro. At some points you are 100% right but at others there are some contradictories, specially in the case of the Voodoo King Debojeet Dutta (DD-Dare Devil). You said he is a versatile singer. He might be a little talented but versatile how? The person who has a huge prob in dictions, the person who's songs are very difficult to understand (Not even bit clear like a swamp) how can be versatile. Please bro, explain us. We really need to know.

Now in the case of Zaheer, so far he is the only contestant (male) who performed every genre of songs and you said he is not versatile (But you said the Voodoo King is a versatile one). Mark my word, he is going to the finale.

But one thing is for sure, Yashita is the only one who deserves most to win this contest among others. She is simply the best in the lot.

Another thing, Soumen is at least 100 times better than DD.

@Jatin,

Thanks yaar. How can I forgot that name Prashant Tamam. Yes, he is the worst in that category.

@Hemant Da,

Domain name & hosting is on process. 45 GB bandwith. Hope very soon we can start our own site like india-forums.com as I am almost planning to create such a site like that. Be ready na.

@Neel,

Where you have been? Hope you are fine. I would only like to tell you one thing, either you believe it or not totally depends on you, but despite the weakest, Asma is the only one for whom 90% viewers are watching this show. And to remind you she didn't damage anyones careers, she is not responsible for anyones early eliminations, if you want blame anyone for such than you can blame only Zee.

God bless us all.

@Antar
I said that it's always good if any of the talented singer wins the competition.I am not against anyone,except Aasma.It is not that Aasma doesn't deserve to be in the show...but it's only that she doesn't deserve to be in the final 7 or a winner.She is cute and hard working but she doesn't have the voice to be a winner.
Coming to Debojit,I too agree that he has problem with his diction and should work hard on that but he is very talented.Once listen to his songs on youtube and you can know how versatile and talented singer he is...Kabhi alwida na kehna,Adhuri kahani,Saawariya,Ni mein shagan manawan,Tu hi re,Hey chand teri,Diwana tera,Tu bulale bulale...he gave many other wonderful performances.If you listen him singing you will never feel that you have heard that voice before...his voice is very original and he sings all genre of songs equally good.I don't know who will be in the finals,but I wish to see him in the final 3.
Coming to Zaheer,I too accept that he is talented and very professional.There is no doubt that he sings qawwali and punjabi disco numbers very well but I feel that his voice is little husky and scratchy for slow and beautiful numbers.By saying that he is not very versatile,I mean that his voice is not well suited for all genre of songs.And if you listen him singing you may feel that you have heard this kind of voice before...I don't say that his voice is not original but there are other singers with his kind of voice.I totally agree that he also has the potential to be a winner.My top 4 were just my opinion and it doesn't mean that I am right or wrong.
Coming to Soumen,he is also talented and can be a winner but he needs to be little more consistent in his performances.
Yashita,Vaishali and Prathiba are also giving good performances consistently.It is a long way before the finals and everyone has the scope for improvement.As I said before,I will be happy to see any one of these talented singers to win the competition.

Antar said...

@Anil,

I am neither a fan of Asma nor Debojeet. To me, Debojeet is not a versatile singer (Not anyway) but simply the most over hyped contestant of ever. You said, I better watch all of his performances to tell frankly I have all the episodes of SRGMP, SVOI & Indian Idol not only for this year but last year's also in my small PC. The kind of a person I am judge something after thoroughly experimented on that. I watched all of his performances and believe me except once or twice didn't impress me at all. How can a singer be so impressive who has serious diction problems!! I really don't know. If you observe carefully, you will also notice how he spoiled the songs by unnecessarily shoutings during the performances. To add this info, I personally once used to be a very well known singer (in the underground band [Rock] sectors) in my nation. I may be not a well educated singer (But very much educated in education,lol) but was a hell of a performer and rocked at that time. I left that line for some reason (Was a Computer Engineer but a Banker now) but I still can judge how well a singer is singing. I am not taking any credits on me, just revealed a truth and another thing is very soon I am going to release my first musical album (As I decided to back in this line beside my job) along with musical videos. So per my that little knowledge and experience at least I can say, DD is not even a good singer.

@Hemant Da,

Nice to hear that you are with me. I know you will be always.

Thanks.

@antar

i had my tests, now they are over. I know I have not been very regular in months of october and november. first, durga puja,. then diwali break when I was out of town. Then I had my exams from 8'th of november. In between I have contributed whenever I cana nd like august or september, i will try to be as regular in decemeber!!

anway this show will be wrapped up by january. I wonder why saregama, ii4 and svoi 2 are all so slow this year. svoi 2 started in july, no results till now. they are ocnstantly delaying. and saregama has been delayed because of strike. as for 114, galas have not started yet!!

Well my fave to win is pratibha. i least care about aasma. to me she neither has any attraction and is totally besuri. I have nothing against her, but at zee for bringing her in first place.
You might see, our earlier predcitions have gone haywire. all of us expectd mitika to reach top 3 at least. we expected sashi, arshad and sunvinder to go far. naian shud have bee in top 3 also. But all got eliminated so early.
THIs is most unpredictable season of sraegam. i wud like my only fave remianing pratibha to win. But yashita is also good. Either of these 2 or zaheed shud win. Def not debo, assma and I was against the 2 regional winners entering in between.
I hope top 3 are pratuibha, yashita and zaheed. wud like a girl to win

anil said...

@Antar
Seems like you hate Debojit very much.I don't hate anyone,even Aasma.I am following Saregamapa from 3 years and I just presented my opinions.Anyway seems like the discussion is going out of bounds and lets stop it in good terms.Lets all wish that a good singer wins this competition.
It's nice to know that you are a singer and a multi-talented person.I appreciate your love towards the singing and the fact that you are trying to release an album inspite of being busy with your job.You are a true inspiration and "All The Very Best" for your album and the future endeavors.

Antar said...

@Neel,

It's really nice to hear that you will be available from now. We all missed you here those days. By the way, what a coincidence, your & my predictions for the 3 finalists are just same except at the case of winner where I prefer and would love to see Yashita as a winner.

@Anil,

Believe me I really don't hate anyone it just seems to me Debo is not perfect for singing, thats it. By the way, I am just a simple person. Don't think I am a multi-talented person. Thanks for your wonderful compliments & wishes.

Giridhar said...

Debojit is the Best singer of Zee saregamapa. He deserves.

I think Asma should no more continue in Saregamapa.

Its jst time pass and time waste in this singing contest.

There is no meaning in Asma performance.

Why some one is speaking about Asma beauty. Its not a beauty contest.

I think zee saregamapa creating un necessary fame for the beauty of Asma.

Stephen said...

Hi Friends,
The biggest mistake of the show is Asma.If it is the search for talent,it is a fault to have singers like Asma.She has destroyed the oppertunities of good singers like Sara,Tarun,Sujath and many more.If it is a show of cute girls,I am sorry.
Thank You

rajan said...

i think aasmas confident level in best and it seens but when seen like a competition this is best that aasma was go back because entertainment was not basic of competition so thre r many best singers are outed
