Teri Diwani

Kailash Kher’s Teri Diwani (from album Kailasa) is my one of the favourite song. In Saturday’s Episode Raja attempted this song (and at some extent he was in the same league). This reminds me Abrokanti’s performance in Saregamapa Lil Champs last year. Here are the videos of Teri Diwani, these are not meant to compare them but to enjoy the song.

  2. raja i think is a good singer, but not gr8 as made by the judges on the show.
    abro sang this song much better
    and u can easily make out from the vid.

  3. no dought Abrokanti (Lil Champs) sang better then raja he always lost control on sure but judges ignore them he is good singer but not awesome singer like they present him even zee showning his clip on every break to promote him i think may be most ppl won’t agree wid me but Amanat aneek and Musarat are far better singer then Raja he is politition not singer lol ask him to try there 2 may be he win 1 national seat

  4. we agree
    but mentors
    keep raja on himalaya they are thinking RAJA IS NO. 1 BUT
    THIS SONG SANG RAJA AND EVERY BODY KNOWS HIS WEAKNESS
    ABROKANTI IS BES THAN RAJA
    THERE IS NO ARGUMENTS HE IS BEST
    IF DIWAKAR GET VOTETS NOT ON SINGING
    (HE IS GOOD SINGER NOT THAN ABROKANTI)
    RAJA CAN’T REACH UP TO ABROKANTI ABROKANTI IS USTAD

  5. RAJA
    aapne yeh gane ko unjustice kiya (teri diwani)

  7. I totally agree with all the comments above. Abhro attempted this song very nicely and I always watch abro’s performance on youtube. This song was also sung by Twinkle in Zee Sara Gama Pa Challenge 2007 Taj Mahal Special and she spoiled the taste badly.
    And again Kailash Kher based Raja spoiled this song. He was totally offkey. Even nothing control in his voice. No sur, no taal but judges said wah wah.. what s this. I dont know why they always give unsual praise. They should be fair enough to maintain show’s integrity. They should keep in mind that everytime a singer cant sing every song very good. Every time they brought Mussarat, Amanat, Junaid or some other contestant in contraversy about their singing but why not for Raja, Aneek aur Mauli? Why they should be praised and marked 10 even they performed not up 2 the mark? I m not confused why the loosing the charm of the show. Anyway my topic goes long and it s really a long long discussion. Sorry guys, I must say that no doubt Raja is a good singer but he has to prove like he is good enough by giving such good performances. Thanx for reading

  8. I dont agree the adver comments made against Raja in the abov posts, after i compared above 3 perormances by abro, raja and kailash. Raja did not sang exactly like kaishe did, he made alterations pusposefuly and that made this song beatier tan its original, he did the same to many of the previous songs and that all came out with flying colors, i must say this song was sung by raja beatifully. All credits to this genious….
    And contrary to the posts abov, Jusges, especialy in the last episode, they try to demote raja, by himesh saying there were lots of mistakes, and id saying he has to correct low notes, so i dont agree Judges promot him. No it has become so that Raja has proved he is capable of a playback singer, now no body can say the therways..thats the fact…

  9. raja completely screwed the mukhda. i dont know why he completely changed it. i get a feeling that since he could not sing it as beautifully as kailash kher did it so he changed it so that no body can make a comparison. and to who said raja sang better than the original seems to be out of his mind. no body can sing it better than what kailash khair did.

    as far as performance by abrokanti goes- it was beautiful

  10. Abhro’s version is the best ive heard – ever… Raja screwed the lyrics up.. Theres a guy in Indian idol called Emon – he totally sang without feeling.. Horrible

    But Abhro rules- he shouldv’e one… I’d pay big money for his CD

  11. RAJA sung this song brilliantly…what a voice, he keeps playin with SUR n TAAL. Abro sang as per his standards (KID), comparing it with RAJA is a complete nonsense.Infact I liked Raja’s song more than the ORIGINAL.Can never get bored hearing the same RAJAs song several times. God gifted voice. If i had to rate the Top 5 singers, the sequence wud b

    1. RAJA
    2. RAJA
    3. RAJA
    4. RAJA
    and 5. RAJA.

  12. abro was 100 times better than raja. you believe or not but raja oversang this song. totally out of sur. the taste and flavour we’ve got in kailash kher’s song only can stable with abro’s song not raja.

  13. we really like SA RE GA MA PA and love the singers specailly Raja, Amanat Ali, Moly and Poonam.

    and we want to see them in finals coz they desevre it. :-)

  14. u ppl r ca’z. all are jealous with mauli.

    u guys don’t see bagger on sare’pa show…she is poonam and her mentor. please don’t cry on her life situation/background. don’t use that as a base to vote. everybody has problem in life in level of more or less. i am not saying she not a good singer but sometime she sings and looks like noise. but i must say few her performance are much better than others. just to say that

    DON’T GIVE HER(POONAM) SYMPATHY VOTE

  15. who every said that mauli is better singer then poonam that person listen songs through his ass coz every one knows that poonam is far better singer then mauli, infect mauli is worst singer then all of those people out there.

  16. It is not Poonam’s fault that saregamapa wants to exploit the situation of its contestants for effect. They want a higher TRP and you want to blame the contestant. Poonam does have a sad story and I would like someone to win who deserves it but also needs it. Someone said before on another posts that Raja was talking too much. Again if everyone is asking questions he has to answer.

    Also, I hope the judges stop with trying to create love stories. We don’t care who likes who.

  17. Surely if someone compares Raja’s performance with Kailash Kher or abrokanti, people will feel the diference,and they will sey that Raja did mistakes. Thats wrong, because raja adapted this song altorether diferently, what he did was another masterpiece after his naina tagh lenge.
    his composition was much better than kailash Kher & Abrokanti.
    I am least concerned with saregama winner,at least after hearing raja for teri deewani, i am sure he is above all this entertainment shows.

    He has become the hero of the nation only because of his powerfull singing.feel the power & serenity in his voice.

    No one can match him, atleast not Kailash Kher or Abrokanti with whom people are comparing Raja.

  18. whoever said dat raja sang even bettah than kailash kher, !!!speechless no doubt RAJA is a good singer but dat comparison is PREPOSTEROUS. and all i have to say is watevaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  19. I heard Abrokanti’s version, but of the one’s I have loved, Kailash Kher delivered the best rendition of Teri Diwani. But this is just a difficult piece to pull off. In all fairness to the contestants, there are a set of built-in problems associated with performing this song.
    The most obvious one is that you are always going to be compared ( usually unfavorably) to Kailash Kher. The other problem is the one that comes along with trying to sing Teri Diwani as a separate performance which Raja infact did.
    I may end up punlic enemy no.1 after this, but i thought RAJA “and i m telling you” is severely overrated.

  21. i thought vishal and shekar were honest judges with an equally honest opinions on performances.
    but i think they got it wrong with rajas teri diwani.
    wake up judges on the show.

  22. i think that kalish kher sung it best and raja tried his best but he wasn’t good enough if raja wanted he could have sung better but he didn’t thats becuz he aint a vggrfgerstyle singer

  23. in one line… RAJA IS A IG WASTE… HE CANNOT SING…
    DO NOT SUPPORT BAD SINGERS LIKE RAJA THE ZERO ANF MOULI THE CRAP

  24. hi this is a blog from germany n i am actually german :)
    but got badly hooked on sargamapa while staying in india for many month – thanks to this site i still can follow my favorite show :) )
    now my top 5 r
    Mussarat
    Poonam
    Aneek
    Amanat
    Raja

    all have their special strength….

    but Raja got out-shown by this boy who has blown my mind – thanks for the posting :)

  25. ha ha ha ha,
    Some guys here have lost their mind, I heard It hundred times all the version by kailash, abro, emon from II and twinkle the most I like is the one sung by raja his was even better then kailash himself this is why people are voting for him. he improvise songs in a manner that it sounds better then orignal first naina then mahiya now teri deewani. he is the best thats why he got the most you love him or hate him but you cant deny that he is the most talked about amongst all.

  26. I agree that raja is a good singer but I am sorry to say that his voice and style is that of a quawalli singer and since songs of kailash kher is in vogue now-a-days so we like his songs. I can hardly imagine Raja singing playback song for any of our leading heroes.

  27. Hey guys dont cry over who is better and who is worse,Just support the best singer who sang well and dont play politics to get sympathy votes.
    Thats the spirit of all the reality shows.

  28. Last night I was listening to Raja’s songs and i really enjoyed but when i paid more attention to his voice i realised that the sweetness was missing. His voice is very powerful and his performance is equally good. But the question is can Raja sing only sukhwinder’s or kailesh kher’s numbers? Will he be able to handle soft romantic songs? I seriously doubt it.

    About this song I do not think it is fair to compare him with some kid or with the original singer. He did a good job in his own way.

  29. you lot gota understand the fact tht the ppl fink rajaz is betta thn da kids is coz raja has a deeper voice nd dat bois got a child voice nw his his voice aint broken yt wen it does his is gona be so much more betta at da end of da day
    yh kailesh kher is ovsly da bes siger up der coz its orignated on his voice itz made to suite his voice once youve hrd it in his voice if its not spot on lyk his den it aint gona be no good to anyone

  30. did anyone recall the legends Ghulam Farid Sabri and Maqbool Sabri from whose qawwali this song was picked up … “main to deewani khawaja ki deewani”

  31. Hey guys….I regularly listen to Raja. He is fantastic. For those who think that Raja was not the best singer of Teri Dewangi, I disagree. I would prefer him to Kailash Kher. Raja has something in his voice which is beyond sur, taal and simple melody…honestly, the only thing that matters is that when I listen to the song do I feel like buying it or not. Abro sings well for a kid but his voice is too dull for this song…he is a kid and will need time for his voice to become mature.

  32. I don’t want to comment on the child Abro’s singing. As a kid he sang it pretty good.

    But the real comparison is between Kailash, the original singer and Raza a compititor. Well I will say both Kailash kher and Raza sang this song pretty good in their own way. Kailash sang it in the original SUFI style and Raza sang it in Hindustani Classical style. He started it with a short Alap. Did the Modulations in the song which was not in the original singing. He improvised this song in a classical way which proves his Music knowledge.

    While you guys are comparing don’t just compare it with the original voice or style only. Since they are different person their voices will definitely differ.

    Raza did a great justice by keeping the same SUR and TAAl but with a semi classical style. Only thing that was missing was a SARGAM in Raza’s song. If he had added that, it would have been a complete classical package of a SUFI Song.

    Just think, if this song has been sung by Hans Raj Hans or great singer like Manna Dey then this song would have been very classical oriented and even better.

    It seems Raza is a trained singer and has a great potential and Vishal knows that, so he appreciates him more than any body.
    And this show is a talent search show and not just to find who sang the song in the same voice and style as the original singer.

    I am not any fan of any singers but truly appreciate any good singer who has good music knowledge. As you all know Amanat, Aneek are very good singers, they are trained in classical. They can produce the song exactly same as the original song. Mussarat is the best in SUFI Style, that is his born talent. But as earlier pointed out by Vishal he has to preserve his high notes otherwise he may loose it completely some time. To keep it intact he needs to do a lot of riyaaz, that he is not doing properly. Zunaid is a very good singer but as pointed out by all mentors his low notes are poor he sometimes misses it. He needs classical training properly. Harpreet is great PUNJABI singer and has very good hold on folk songs. Only girl i can think of comparing with these guys is Poonam, I won’t say anything about the insult to Sakira (rather she is an item song singer), Sumedha is a chalu singer, who picks easiest but melodeous song. But poonam is good but does not have training. What ever she is doing, is through the guidance of ID. She is a quick and obedient learner.

    Finally, Who will be the Champion of this show Janata’s choice or Zee Tv’s choice? Seems like, Zee Tv is ready to crown the indian Shakira.

  33. Toshi of AVOI did the right thing to this song by making it Hindustani classical and added the SARGAM. So that’s what i say a complete Package. But that does not make Toshi a better singer than Raza or Amanat or Aneek. But he has the talent and courage to modify an already popular song in a good way.

  34. Raja Hasan jaisa naam waisa kaam
    agle 80 saal tak tumhare jaisa singer na koi hai na koi rahega….

    himesh ji ki tarah aapkasooror mat banana

  35. I heard Original, Abrokanti, Raja and Toshi and then I felt Raja’s voice is different but complete package is delivered by Toshi (added hindustani SARGAM)….if he continues on this track he can surpass all together. Keep watching ASVOI and SRGMP….

  36. I would request all the judges to be very sincere while judging the performance of mauli. audiences have a lot of trust in u all. ur comments encourag them to vote and if u all give wrong comments then many of our talented and pure singers will lose. we all respect this show a lot as it has given us singers like shreya and kunal. Please don’t spoil purity of sangeet as it is divine.We dont want a shakira,but we want a saraswati.
    Judges please i want mauli to be out of this show she is the only b’coz of whom we might loose a talented singer this week. I can’t take it any more.

  37. raja is great
    i read all above comment
    but, abrokanti is a small child. you please listen rajas pitch of the song.

    i request pl dont under estimate raja.

    i like poonam also,she always sang tough songh without any difficulty.

    iam a very big fan of Raja. i Like saregamapa mostly because of Raja

  38. i am very angry with mauli. she cannot sing every song. only suits her one song thats from guru.
    thats all. i really dont like her performance at all.
    she is beating saraswati ma with chappal. very bad, i am surprised how bapita, a great music director, likes her performance and singing.

    see poonam, she sings all songs aswell as difficult song very softly. that is called knowledge of sur tal etc etc.

    about raja. he is great singer. i am the big fan of him. every saturday i used to vote for him.

    i like rest of the participant also very much except mauli.

    this saturday i agree with himesh. mauli deserves only below 5 marks.

    i have also a comment about nirupama, she was a great singer and great voice quality also. she voted out., because of this mauli.

    next friday mouli should vote out.
    otherwise our good singer, i mean voice of wolrd will be lost.

    i request everybody you please vote for a good singer not only a performance or dancer like maili

    thanks
    lily

  40. I have seen Toshi’s videos on youtube, he can be compared with Amanat Ali of saregama. Both are very polished singers, can be classified as complete packages.

  41. HI RAJA I M BIG FAN OF URS

    BOLE TO GOD BLESS UUUU
    BYE TAKE CARE

  43. Re: Raja Hassan’s singing.
    I thought it was pretty good, didn’t really like the intro as it was too fast, and a bit wrong.
    I think Himesh’s mark giving was too lenient…first he says that there were many mistakes, but then he gives 10/10…please correct me if am wrong, but when I was in school, 10/10 meant that it was perfect and without mistakes. lol
    keep up the good work though
