Indian Idol 3, 4th June: Its girls again ….

Here comes the day of verdict out for boys. Starting straight from the start, Jaaved Sir’s choice for vote out were Roshan and Sohit, almost obvious choices from Jaaved Sir, then from Alisha’s side, there was only one name Roshan; probably Alisha skipped to speak up against Sohit like me and then it was Udit Ji with Aneesh and Rehaan Khan.

So, these were the choices and the common choice was Roshan at least. Now, it was about girl’s choices like boys did at their times and almost un-ambiguous choice were Roshaan and Rehaan.

Again it was a rapid declaration of safe and un safe list, which finally ended with four names; Roshan and Rehaan (as expected)… Roshan was given a quick verdict saying that he is out and then Rehaan was given the verdict that he is safe (although it was not acceptable for boys) and then it was between Bharat and Parleen and Parleen got the way to advance a step more and Bharat is out.


Then the show moved forward to performances of girls and now here comes my comments:

Pooja Chatterjee: “Ishq Samandar” Favourite contestant of my best friend. Personally likable for many girls specially as she is fine in studies too and seemed to be bold and sensitive over issues. But Indian Idol is for singing and performing ability only, so … performance was fine, sur were fine, but somewhere voice quality was a bit missing. So, I was not that happy and could say that this time Alisha was right about her opinion. Although Udit Ji said, she might be in 1-10 (which also raised eye brow of Shifa), but I don’t think that people will agree on it at least as far as this performance is concerned.

Harshida: “Jawani Jaaneman” Really a good choice for herself in deed as Udit Ji said. One of the few songs, which could suit her bold personality. In fact, even her auctions were fine, except just a minor place, which was nice as she doesn’t belong to India. Jaaved Ji said, Indians always in praise make a comment that it’s imported and she is imported. Alisha said, it was better than the last time. Udit Ji was quit happy with song and I was surprised that why he didn’t said that she is coming in top 10. 😉

Aisha Sayed: “Aao Na” She was being presented as a girl always experimenting with her voice according to the songs and occasions. Over all, she was nice, but I felt her a bit off key at higher nodes. Alisha said she is always nice and this time was no exception, but this time Sur was missing at a few places and the same comment was from Udit Ji’s side too, but Udit Ji added one more thing that she might come in 1-10 list (so, she is the second one in the list now 😉 Jaaved Ji pointed the same thing, which I noticed means the high nodes. He said that her voice was getting in-disciplined at high nodes.

Vertika: “Yeah Mera Dil Pyar Ka Diwana” A song completely opposite to her personality, but she was brave enough to try. But probably, for the judges and show, it was not an excuse and Jaaved Ji in clear words said that this was not her type of song and she was much off key than ever. Alisha said that she is very shy and simple.. Probably which made her uncomfortable with the same song. Udit Ji reminded his memories when he heard Asha Ji singing the same song with Kalyan Ji in 1978. He said that she must be comfortable and enjoying with the song rather than only singing it.

Charu Semwal: “Bidi Jalaile” Good girl image, whether her looks or disciplined manners in fight with Sohit in initial shows, she is a complete package and she is very conscious about it, means caring about her looks with the singing. The girl knows that what makes the votes turning in her favour and she is using her X-Factor. Although everyone praised her, but should say that she was not always perfect with the song and I should put my point against Jaaved Ji, who said that she was better than all the other girls, who sang the same song in many other shows. I am of clear choice that she might be good but was far behind Pawani from Sa Re Ga Ma Kids. She will keep on moving in the show.

Richa Aneja: “Kabhi Neem Neem Kabhi Shahad Shahad” Many people are not happy with the girl from earlier rounds. She kept on doing mistakes; she has enough attitudes to shatter others like she did in earlier rounds, by being very very rude to Prashant, who was with her in duet. Most the girls don’t pay favour to her, I think. So, at one side, there are enough reasons to throw her out, but another side, makes her right candidate for such reality shows. She looks like innocent, but anyone could observe that she is using her innocent looks for hiding her cunningness at few places. Jaaved Sir was not happy with her voice and said that it was not pleasant.

I wont comment over Richa Aneja right now. For me as a person and a singer, she doesn’t stand here. Even if she has good voice quality, she is not able to do justice with that.

Ankita: “Ajnabi” What a look, what a performance, just mind blowing.. she really surprised me. She was the absolute show stealer today. Perfect, very perfect … what else I could say. Transformation after the last boyish looks, very impressive. But I fear that she has given her trump card out before time, but she might be right too as in such shows, we could never guess that when the right time is. Anyway, I will say all the best to Ankita.

Vanita: “Chandani Ratein” Fine performance, both Sur wise and voice quality wise. Judges were objecting about her low nodes, but was praising her. Although Jaaved Ji was saying that she was not having the right Khhanak in voice. Although Minni Mathur gave the excuse of less time to practice, but Jaaved Ji countered saying that its same for each one of them. Anyway, for me, she doesn’t have that star material for Indian Idol.

Deepali: “Abke Sajan Sawan Mein” For me, she is impressive. Right nodes, sweet voices and right attitude. She was nice as like ever. Although this time, it was another tune, but she made it. Everyone praised her performance and Minni introduced the fact that she is topper of her class this year. Impressive for everyone na….. I am counting over you Deepali … don’t disappoint me.

Smita Adhikari: “Jubi Jubi Jubi” Last time, she was in bottom four and it made me clear that she wont make it for longer. But anyway, she is trying hard … and she really rocked this time. Could she make it for next round with this performance? According to me, she must be in, but let’s see, looks are important or voice. Jaaved Ji did the right thing for the moment by giving her a standing ovation. It was almost necessary for making her survived.

Richa seemed to be not happy with her praises.

Priyanka Mukharji: “Hotho Pe Aisi Baat” Start was a bit off key, but in the last phase, she regained the passion. She shown that she has the potential, but was not able to use it this time. Over all, she was not in profit from Judges as except Udit Ji, others were not in favour.

Shifa Ansari: “San Sanan San” My personal favourite… I really started fearing for her as its never easy to match up the expectations. It was too early to give her best and now she has competition with only herself. Song was nice, voice was nice, performance was nice, everything was nice and it was unexpected to hear anything wrong from Judges’s side. Udit Ji started with the comment that she lost Sur and others joined the same. Jaaved Ji also added that somewhere involvement was lesser at a few places.

I hope that this sweet girl will come out to be my favourite for the show this time.
