The Biggest Musical Talent Hunt of India is back and how! From a person who once tried to make an everlasting impact on the judges in the first edition of the show but failed to an Amritsari lad who has a story to share, the Delhi auditions telecasted on the 1st of June marked the return of a new season of the highly anticipated reality television show ‘Indian Idol’ with the right amount of punches. Plus, the eminent judges panel comprising of the ace composer Anu Malik, suave musician Salim Merchant and the versatility personified Sunidhi Chauhan echoes the sky rocketing expectations that the Edition comes along with.
While people crowded like a swarm of busy bees in their quest for honey, their destinations was easily perceived. Five years gone by yet the grit, the compassion and most importantly the motto remains the same. Being tagged and crowned as the Nation’s next Singing Sensation is what remains the ultimate goal for every contestant on the show. Heart renching stories to captivating dreams, the auditions at the country’s capital city were on an all time high. People poured in from all corners of the Northern states with variegated ‘vesh’ but similar ‘bhasha’, the sound of Music. Some carved their niche with soulful melodies, some tried their luck with rhythmic sufi ballads and some catapulted to super success with the iconic Bollywood chartbusters. But one thing is for sure, the talent crunched out from the nooks of the Nation is all set to bedazzle the lovely audience: all and sundry! And guess what given the power packed and enthralling performances that the stage is set for, you would not even mind that extra blabbering from the all time over enthusiastic Anu Malik saab.
One by one, luckily got to witness as many as a handful of fans waiting to meet him, touch him, and even say ‘I Love You’ ;a feat which he might have never enjoyed in his 20 year long career. Apologies! Where many auditions were perfect concoctions to kill Music along with its sur and taal complete ‘Band Baaja Baraat’ style, there were too many peaks with a few valleys in between. One of the major ups of the episode would definitely be the treasured finds from the beloved ‘Pink city’ Jaipur. ‘Alaaps’, ‘ragas’ and ‘harkats’ galore, Jaipur auditions were testament to some beautiful auditions. Certainly a reason to call the city the Embodiment of Talent!
Shouts, screams and few jumps later, the tempestuous talents were en route to Glory. But with competition and wins, comes heart breaks and dejections too. This episode was hardly different! While some artists flew their way to chase their long awaited dreams, some suffered a setback. But nevertheless when God closes one door, he surely is in the mood to open a lot more doors to catch your Dreams!
Our motto: Aim for the zenith, at least then you would reach the stars!
