Review of 22nd June Episode of Saregamapa Challenge 2007
Today is a new round of saregamapa challenge 2007 – Chakravyuh. In this round, the participants from second round who couldn’t make it to Agnipariksha, will perform. The six participants are Sumedha, Apurva, Joy, Nirupama, Poonam and Musarrat. Out of them only two will get entry to final Round of challenge 2007 i.e. Agnipariksha.
The show starts with our cute host Aditya singing ‘Abhimanyu, chakkravyuh mein fas gaya hain tu’…then he introduces the new Mahaguru for this episode.
Today’s Mahaguru is Anandji (of composer duo Kalyanji Anandji who gave hits like Saraswati Chandra, chaliya, upkar,kurbani, janjir, Mukadar ka sikandar, Lawaris and Don). Aditya asks how he is feeling as a part of saregamapa; He says this is first time he is in Vishwayudh and that it’s nice to be part of musical Vishwayudh.
There will be two round in Chakravyuh today. In first round, one boy and one girl get eliminated while in the second round another girl and boy get eliminated leaving behind one girl and one boy who will get entry to final round of Agnipariksha.
Round one – Boys performance:-
1. Harpreet Deol from Ludhiana (Josh Gharana) sings ‘Yaar ko maine’ from the movie Sheesha…..
2. Junaid Sheikh from Pakistan (Hit IT Gharana) sings Tanhayee from Dil Chahta Hai…
3. Wasi Effendi from Pakistan (Yalgaar Gharana) sings Chaiyya Chaiyya from Dil Se…
Comments from Mentors:-
BL – Its very difficult decision because all are good singers.
VS – All three are capable singers. Now it’s totally in the hands of Anandji to judge them.
HR – all of them had sung it well. There might be little technical faults in all performances but overall it’s tough to decide who should eliminate.
ID – for the first time all the singers have sang well, so there should not be elimination according to me. All the best!
Comments from MahaGuru:-
Harpreet sang well….Junaid has good style, good singing quality…for Wasi he says the song selection was wrong. ID says Wasi is not well for past few days. He sings sukhwinder’s song really well that’s why he has given him Chayya Chayya song. Anandji wishes Wasi good luck and says he is eliminated today..
So from the first round, Wasi gets eliminated. He says he will definitely miss the saregamapa stage but he is happy that he performed well and got good comments from judges.
First Round – Girls performances:-
1. Sumana Ganguly from Canada (Hit It Gharana) sings Barso re megha megha from guru…
2. Sreshtha from Kolkata (Rock Gharana) sings Lambi Judaai from Hero…
3. Mauli Dave from USA (Josh Gharana) sings K sera sera from Pukar…
Comments from Magical Mentors:-
Vishal – Shreshta was the best today. Mauli is great performer but for singing she needs to figure it out.
Shekhar – Mauli, the aalap was great but after that sur was flat and pitching was not perfect…Sumana sings very sharp…shreshta was awasome
ID – Shreshta sang first time really well but mauli is performing consistently well so we need singers who perform consistently …
BL – Shreshta sang really well but Mauli also performed well. BL says Mauli is Shakira of India …and he will prove it..
Comments from MahaGuru:-
Sumana has good voice quality…Shreshta has really sung it will but the low notes were not proper…Mauli was good… He speaks in Gujarati with Mauli. Then Bappida sang a Gujarati song and asked HR about the pronunciation. HR is also from Gujarat but born and brought up in Mumbai. Then he too speaks something in Gujarati.. Joins him is ID and then Shekhar too…
Anandji then called ID to declare the results. ID shows red card to Sumana…so Sumana Ganguly is out
Round 2 – (Non Filmi Songs)
Harpreet sings Maaeri from Euphoria album
Junaid sings aisa koi zindagi se waada toh nahin thaa from Roop Kumar Rathod’s album Wada
Mauli sings Ab ke sawan from Shuba Mughal album
Shreshtha sings Dama dum mast kalandar from Runa Laila album (Rocking performance)
Comments from Mentors:-
Vishal – Being a sindhi I was feeling lonely but you sang a sindhi song and made me proud. Shreshta it was wonderful performance. Mauli you need to work hard on your lower notes.
Shekhar – Shreshtha you have powerful voice, Mauli you could have done better than this
BL – The Dama Dum song is very common and has been sung many times at the stage.. So, nothing new.. Mauli follows the record a lot and copies too much…
HR – Shreshtha you have done a fantastic job..outstanding..Mauli is one of superior and star contestants of this show. Mauli is performing very well consistently and she has huge fan following…If suddenly Mauli is out of the show then it’s a big JHATKa…I would say Mauli shouldn’t be out today…
Anandji says Harpreet is a good singer and has bright future.. But Junaid was good today than Harpreet..So, Junaid gets green card to Agnipariksha and Harpreet gets eliminated
Among girls Anandji says – Srestha was very good.. But Mauli has a big fan club and there will be no one who can make fans just like that.. She sang well too and just by little difference Mauli gets green card for Agnipariksha and Srestha gets eliminated.
