Sa Re Ga Ma Pa 2007: The makeover

Recently Smita Adhikari's makeover on Indian Idol 3 drew a lot of attention (or not). After much fussing and fiddling, Smita emerged looking pretty much the same except with a half inch thick foundation covering her zits.


I am not trying to be rude but just want to make the point that while makeovers might be fun to watch because they tap into an ugly-duckling-turns-princess sense of rah-rah justice among us, they are pretty useless in altering the course of someone's destiny.

Much more fun to watch was Ismail Darbar on SRGMP last week. The hunted lab rat look was replaced by something more sauve (or at least by Darbar standards). His hair had been cut and gelled in unison, his beard had been trimmed and he was dressed in white. This made him look less like Yunus Parvez and more like the progeny of Shahjahan and Peter Ustinov playing Emperor Nero in Quo Vadis. Bring on the dancing girls!

Meanwhile a request to Bappida. It's time for a haircut from the back, no?

Why are you insulting West Africa?

I hereby apologize the fine people of West Africa for that comparison.

what do people have to say about darbar-bhai requesting VS to provide work to poonam couple of episodes back? while it did show that the man has as big a heart as his head :), but a talented composer like him is jobless today!! now why could that be??

clix, you are a genius for finding this. We now await the next episode with baited breath.

Anon, I'll have to quote you when we review that episode - but you didn't miss Salman on SRGMP. It's upcoming this weekend.

~mm~ you should upload a video of you doing the yalgaar cry with the TV on in the back and upload it to youtube. Much fun will ensue!
