Indian Idol 3, 13th July 2007: The set was all set to fire … :)

The show started in really dramatic mood and I was really impressed with the ways, Charu performed the falling … although I was surprised that where was Abhishek, the so called drama king.

Bollywood; the Official Theme for today’s Indian Idol.

Bollywood, one thing, Indians can’t live without it… Next change was Jaaved Ji was not there… and someone replaced him as Judge. Everyone might be thinking that Jaaved is just irreplaceable and no one is able to replace him, but there was someone really able to do the same. Minni was right with her words, when she said Dr. Shabana Azami, the inspiration of Jaaved Sir. I was wishing that someday I might get chance to see both of them together on screen or off screen.


Anyway, the clips of Morning Raga was displayed in introduction of the gracious lady and the people knowing music must be floored over it. I will not claim that I have seen the whole movie 😉 , but as much I seen the same, it was technically very good. Why said technically.. you really know… sometime now days youth feel … Shabana Ji preferred to say the name of Chang, when was asked about the name of her favourite. One thing, I must comment over her makeup … I personally don’t like much make over eyes… yeah she has the age against her…. but I was not really able to like her raised kind of eyebrows.. but its my personal view.

Now, coming over the individual performance.


Abhishek: “Das Bahaane” His idol was Abhishek Bachchan. Leave the performance…. First of all, I wanted to praise his looks and personality… he was really looking hot today … he rocked. Although I am not that happy with him today. Although Udit Ji said that he was not well in start, but I should say that he was going flat in the end.. although performance was really well..

Again Alisha and Anu’s clash came out. Where Alisha said he was flat… Anu Ji almost attacked her from all over saying that she was prepared to made down the first candidate.. and public is going to decide over the same that Anu was right or not.

I should say, I loved the performance and looks, but something was missing in the performance… some punch was not there.


Smita: “Salame Ishq” Her Idol was Rekha… it was noticeable when she was living well with the breath, when it was hard keeping the same in key with the song. A much heard song by everyone in India, so sure was tougher than any other. I will sure complain that she is not that good as she was earlier, I mean before the Gala… According to me, she was good today…. but somehow, she is not able to thrill viewers even after makeover…. It’s a bitter truth that she is not Antara Mishra, who got looks after makeover and neither she is Amit Sana, who was enough good to be competitive in such format too… so one day you have to go… not expecting you to survive in next three four rounds… Today you were better than other days..


Charu: “Mujhe Mast Mahaul Me” Her Idol was Sushmita Sen. What a beauty… what a beauty.. … you were like making the whole stage smoked. She was lightening like anything. You just matched Sus.. really… I was just thinking, what if she became professional singer…. Only Shreya Ghosal is going to be competitive to her and even she is not going to win 😉 Performance and expression; both the things were in key… I should say… it was a kind of best watchable performance for this version of Indian Idol.

    But I was disappointed with her voice.. there was no thrill and it was sounding too heavy like she might be trying to make it rather than being natural.

Although Alisha commented that she was looking ravishing, but she was flat. Shabana was with the right comments saying she has everything to be star … and also commented that her performance was like a little scared kind and was needed more rehearsals.

One thing, I will like to add in the end… she got the looks for sure… and could make a great fan following behind her and I am sure impressed with her always smiling looks.. although the same makes here like “Mom Ki Gudia”, which sure will come as weakness at some point.


Parleen: “Sitaro Ki Mehfil Mein” Idol is Hritik A huge risk…. A song, which made the whole India floored for Hritik .. one was needed to have that kind of looks and also dark coloured dressups… for making the same rocking … Parleen’s concentration was too create the same environment, which hritik created with the same in cinema halls… and trying to do the same… he lost the voice and sur many times and worse is that it was almost impossible for him to reach to the level of Hritik and viewers were not ready to compromise any way lesser.

    In last few lines, he seemed to have lost the breath too… dangerous sign for a singer… Anu rated him the weakest among all boys after this performance and Shabana ji also agreed over the same.


Pooja: “Tujhe Yaad Na Meri Aayi” Idol Kajol. Tough song… when for the first time, I watched the same movie… then there were tears in my eyes with the same song. I was not surprised with the choice…. Pooja’s nasal voice was going to suit the same song. Perfect start!!! Although I was not to ready to live the same tears again and was trying to keep myself smiling.. but you won Pooja… you really lived extremely well wit the same song. For the first time, you were at the same place.. where you must be. Now, I came to know that why you were favourite of my girlfriend.

    Although Shabana said she was not able to feel the same emotions as she is too young.. but I totally disagree…. She is enough mature and emotional to feel the same.. and she did it.. I am not hearing even if Anu and anyone else is saying any words against her.

    Pooja, you were outstanding today.


Prashant: “” His Idol was Akshay Kumar Dashing entry … I am really surprised…. You are silently doing well every time… One thing, I started noticing from this time… that you are going to keep the fan following from your community behind you like crazy and the same will make you in huge advantage in later stages… I really knew that why you are never in danger and technically know that you are not going to go out. He will get preferences over Chang, when the time will come. His passionate fan following is going to make ways for him. Hoping that he will justify that fan base.

Anu was too harsh over him and said that its not a joke and it was not the way to sing….. Although he excused saying that his health was not that well. It was not working over the audiences, I think, neither on the Judges. His nasalling voice is not new and sure it was not like impact of any fever or illness. Don’t be shy Prashant, you have a few good things with you. You know how to work hard and the same will help you till the end.

Shabana made the quotable quote. “The weaker the circumstances, more you work hard, you can’t afford to take it low.”. Really she is like Jaaved Sir’s wife must be.


Ankita: “Chhamma Chhamma” Idol Urmila … Right choice of Idol. Ankita Ankita Ankita… everytime, I think that it was your best and it would be impossible to match up with your own standard next time, but in a way, you are always watchable and giving everyone smiles from the innermost of the heart. You just catch the eyes and heart of the viewers and I will be disappointed, if you gonna to come into bottom ever again.

What an rhythmic entry… well dressed … in start, she was holding only her voice and tunes… and was careful about the same and as the song continued… she came back in her own mood. She is much creative and innovative.. style of saying UP, MP was her own and worked really well with her ways… she is not always used to of using her womanhood all the times.. but whenever she does it.. no one could match her.

Anu Malik praised her saying fantastic and Shabana Azami made the same higher by saying superb. Alisha said she is always another person everytime. Udit Ji came with another view saying that beginning was bad and she was not in key…. I found Anu much rude over the same, when he said that Beta bata kaun sa sur gaya tha… it was not the way.. I didn’t liked it…. Although Anu was on the right side… but he is the not the one… people could think as decent. I was not ready to see such moments in this show. Thankfully, sweet Udit Ji was controlled over the same.


Chang: “Jise Dhoondhta Hoon Main” Idol Saif Ali Khan The shouts were showing that how hot favourite he is. He was better performer today. Alisha was smiling in cute ways and Minni was encouraging in nice ways… all girls seemed to be supporting to him. He ended his song with giving rose to Deepali. A thing, probably I was doing, if got any chance 😉

Shabana was careful about words and marked him as average. Alisha praised him and so it was expected that Anu will come against him. Anu said that with the rose, the rhythm gone a little. Similar opinion was from Udit Ji too.


Deepali: “Mera Piya Ghar Aaya” Idol Madhuri … Oh!! My God. Oh!! My God …. You smoked it this time. Although one of my three hot favorites, Abhishek was only looking well and not performed to thrill me, but the second one Ankita made it and now it was time for Deepali to cross the standards set by Ankita. She rocked, rocked and rocked. Alisha said the right words that she ruled over everyone… and it was 100%. Flawless for Anu Ji and complete in emotions. I am sure jealous of Hussain that he gave that rose to her not me ;(

    Deepali… I was thinking that Ankita was in balance with performance and singing and Charu, Abhishek were the best in looks this time… but you really redefined a lot of parameters. What you wanted to hear more, I have not enough words to praise, even now moving with your rhythms and smiles..


Emon: “Khaike Paan Banaras wala” Idol Amitabh Bachchan. Your voice was really well today… I was thinking that your voice is used to choking at higher nodes… but at least this time, you were able to control the same. My suggestion is to improve your stamina…. then the same problem will resolve.

Anu was really harsh over him… when he said that he was too bad today. Even Shabana and Alisha opposed in the joined words… he said I am really unable to understand that why he is so harsh over Emon specially. Emon was visibly upset, when he come to hear the same words again, about which, he was trying enough to avoid this time, but the same fear came to him in more worse. Shabana completely against Anu in the same.

Anu said that if he don’t get it, then he is gone. Pooja was in tears with the same. Emon’s words over the same … were not balanced and well controlled and the anger was sure visible from his inside. Pooja was almost ready to fight. Deepali said that keep quiet at least in front of the camera. Smart girl.


Amit: “” The Idol was Amir Khan. The come back kid. Really I am surprised with the ways….. he is stepping higher. He was perfect…. Yes I am saying perfect… I don’t think anyone ever got the same words from me in this ways in this version of Indian Idol. If I am saying his flawless then it does mean. I loved you… just wishing that if I was able to sing like you.

Hussain said that he was like under rated till yet, but today he is going to get the best comments today. This time Anu’s poem was cute… really cute. Shabana said it was just perfect… not any bit lesser…. not any bit higher… right on track. Alisha asked for once more. Really there was a Nasha in the same and it was not like someone said to her… but was spontaneous …. When the same made Alisha move to stage dancing for him. Really he was too well today and deserved to make someone dancing for him. Ankita did it with one by one and Amit made everyone moving with him…. Ankita got competition now.

Amit you even crossed Deepali today… Hoping that people are able to get the means of the same that me saying the same. I really want to thank you for the same performance.


So, should say that it was a memorable episode for this version. I am impressed with Ankita, Pooja, Deepali, Prashant and Amit. And also impressed with looks of Abhishek and Charu. What else you could ask from a single episode. Shabana must not go disappointed with the same.

Shabana ended the same episode with the comment that if one is in such a competition, then he/she has to play to win only, must develop the same killer instinct. Right note… thanks Shabana Ji for your valuable presence there. You never let us be any bit down in the absence of Jaaved Sir.
