Saas Bahu sankat comes to Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2007

SRGMP has always had its roots in saas-bahu serials - its narrative powered by jazbaat and drama. Mussarat has been an object of dispute on this show. These two came together with a crackle last week and resulted in a jhagda that shook one contestant to the core and made Himesh Reshammiya look like a saas-bahu villian.

Here's how it went down. Mussarat sings songs in only one jonar - most people call it sufi, but its really a wide range of shababi stuff. And Vishal has endlessly needled him to bring more variety to his singing in order to prove his talent. This is something that has repeatedly gotten Himesh's goat because it tends to eat into Mussy's votes even when the man sings his heart out.

Faced with the prospect of Mussarat losing to Vishal-Shekhar's own chela Raja Hasan, Himesh got progressively more sullen on the show. Add to this the fact that Raja delivered a very ordinary (by his own standards, to be fair) rendition of "Hum The Woh Thi" from Chalti Ka Naam Gadi and his gurus - under pressure to save their last contestant in the show - promptly and rather amusingly leaped on stage and tried to fake a "great Raja performance".

Now I can understand Bappi joining them on stage but when long-standing Himesh chamchaa Ismail also bounded up there with them, it must have left the House of Reshammiya fuming. Later, he rather reluctantly joined the rest on stage and added some meaningless banter to the proceedings.

But when the show culminated in Mussarat getting kicked out, Himesh couldn't control his temper and out come the saas-bahu taanes. This was rather hilariously exploited by the SRGMP producers with their black and white crisis cam. For a while Vishal tried to defend a visibly striken Raja. Bappi tried to correlate all of this to the cataclysmic injustice handed out to Mauli and noted how unfair this duniya is. Himesh promptly shut him down. Mussarat looked like he wanted to be on a plane back home already.

So shaken was Raja that in the next show he veritably croaked out "Tenu Le Ke" from Salaam-e-Ishq. This doesn't bode well for the man - who at one point was clearly coasting on his status as the most bravura singer of the show. Interestingly the question now becomes: should he play it safe and stick to his genre to regain past glory or should he continue to explore his versatility and risk it all? In other words, to survive Raja might have to prove Himesh right and his own mentor wrong. Wah! Kya Bollywood twist hai!

More doses of Himesh were to come. This time over the ghasa-pita Aneek Sumedha one-sided romance. This reminded me of one of my closest classmates - fondly called Bond - who had multiple romances going on for years with girls who barely knew he existed. He even celebrated their birthdays and tracked their performances in exams down to marks breakdown by subject. And Aneek seems to be doing that. I wouldn't be surprised if he had turned out to be Lalloo Prasad Yadav's son, so deft is he in tweaking a potentially beneficial situation.

In any case: on to the singing. Aneek continues to be my favorite - probably more so because he could be the next Himesh Reshammiya in terms of being a continuous cheese-fest. His ability to fill his lungs to capacity in about 2 nanoseconds between lyrics in a song still amazes me. Sumedha sang beautifully but the shrillness in her voice turns me off every now and then. Poonam - whose sad-sack kahani is the cause of debate everywhere, no doubt fueled by the SRGMP media team itself - sang both her songs superbly although her song selection sometimes puts me to sleep. Amanat continued his upward trend of delivering entertaining performances.

The aneek sumedha love thing really is irritating, it has really got to do nothing with the show.
Ive a hunch raja will go out this week , mostly due to himmesh's comments

Anonymous said...

Get that Hirsute Rodent Himass Besharmiyya out of this show .. poor Oink will get out just bcoz the public does'nt want to see HR any more

Anonymous said...

Last week's episode was rather annoying. I am pretty sure looking at Sumedha's and Amanat's expression that there was never anything going on between them. Aneek is in Himesh's gharaana so he seems to be carrying this game along with Himesh. Funny part is that Himesh understands how irritated SUmedha is listening to this drama and still he continues with these stories.

anu g said...

Aspi, looks like u think just like Shekar.I had posted a blog givig the address of a site which has his interview in which he says SRGMP should be renamed Saas-bahu-aur-gaana or maybe Saas-bahu-aur-drama.....it seems like he is one of us......exasperated with himesh.

anu g said...

Am posting the address again here, cos its more relevant here.
Catch this interview with shekar:

megan said...

Aspi, you need to calm down on HR related posts. It is effin with my head. I even had a dream about him last night. Eww and no he aint my dream man he's my nightmare man..
i am still disturbed

Sidekick said...

O well, maybe i'm in the minority but poor Aneek's stock is taking a beating in my eyes not because of his singing (I think he is excellent) but thanks to his gleeful participation in the Himass show. But I do enjoy the unsurpassed tackiness and 'sickophancy' of the rings he wears - H R ones in tribute to his royal besharmness! Can someone confirm this? I hope I'm not blinded by my besharmiya distaste.

On another note, Sumedha missed an excellent chance to take preemptive action by borrowing a panna fm the savvy and spunky Ankita's kitab. She shd have simply trotted out raakhis for all the guys and invoked the "bhaiya"astra. In fact in order to fight the good fight against the evil saas i reccomend that all the gals in future SRGMP shows start with that ---- the first of the HR rules. It seems clear that beleaguered Raja needs a few of those too or he's in danger of becoming geography (to use Uditji's charming turn of phrase).

Saritha said...

thanks anu,nice article.no wonder they never show V-S when the drama is on.They r sure pissed.

Rakhi Fan said...

dude rakhi isn't like an everyday thing. You only have rakhi day once a year

Anonymous said...

This was by far the most entertaining review/article I have read about SRGMP yet. *grins* keep it up Aspi!!! :)

M said...

the show won't be worth watching without VS, i hope Raja wins

Leera said...

Enlightening article Anu.

However, I do feel V-S have the clout to stop this nonsense and instead of keeping their hands clean they need to say a few curt words to the producers.
They are the most popular mentors by far and losing them would hurt SRGMP's precious TRPs.

Use that leverage V-S Please!!!

Mind Rush said...

folks, to add my two cents to the fake-Aneek-Sumedha-non-romance....Here's my theroy...Yaar, Him-mess is a marketing genius.
Looking over to II3, Emon got booted out not because he can't sing, but because he's too much a bhaiyya and not enuf of a "sainyya."
A lot of people vote for the contestants because they fall for a guy or have a crush on the girl. Unfortunately, Amit or Prashant can generate the boyfriend fantasy but not young Emon.
So in comes Himass....with baby Aneek. How to market the baby genius when the likes of Amaanat and Raja dominate the romantic turf? Why, yes, make him out to be an unrequited-Romeo-in-love! This allows young people to project their romantic fantsies onto him and thus overlook his actual age, give him more universal appeal, etc. Thus the unfortunate Emon syndrome is avoided.

Shekhar Groupie said...

Vishal Shekhar and specially Shekhar are the best, most unbiased, highly intelligent, dependable, articulate and sexiest mentors in the history of mentors!

In Vishal Shekhar we trust!

- the end -

zedzded said...

loved your usage of "jonar" ...nice

last 2 episodes, I noticed Vishal Shekar's reaction when Himesh started talking. They both even got off the stage quickly.

I hope V-S stay and H is out the next season. H is annoying beyond a point.

Aspi said...

Megan, what did HR do in your dream? C'mon, share!

zedzed, V-S looked very checked out of this show. Hopefully they'll stick around.

Leera said...

That Bal Ganesha costumed person!!! Like mickey mouse grew a snout, it was absolutely mortifying.

Sania said...

I'm serious - we should start a campaign to vote Aneek out and then we can get rid of Himesh! And see more of V-S! Everyone wins! Who's with me?

M said...

you took all your sweet time to ask.. anyhoo i am not making this up like people from other forums think, i actually had this dream. Yes i did exaggerate the detail a bit and added some affects in my usual style

my dream.. lemme copy paste

--

I was in srgmp sets for some weird reasons and only Himesh was there and somehow my boyfriend and him got into a fight and cops came. Then Himesh was like "Don't take them to jail, i'll take them home"

we had no choice but to go to his house and the house was pink and it was a huge castle like in the movies and he kept on forcefeeding me a cake saying "roti khao bachcha roti khao" and i was like "its a cake not roti" but i had to do as he said otherwise we'll go to jail

then i had a look at his hand and it the skin was peeling like he had some skin disease and it was green, he had huge hairy hobbit feet

I don't remember what happened after that

Sunitha said...

Himesh should be thrown out. The way he snatched mike from Mussarat was gross. My son says, he has "Mike Mania". He should always be kept 2 feet away from mike. The moment Himesh takes mike, my sons changes the challenge. He cannot comprehend what Himesh says. poor guy, does not know that even mum cannot comprehend!

Manish said...

HR's house was pink?

M said...

peachy pink if you want me to be specific

Anonymous said...

Himesh...I have only two words for you:

SHUT UP!!!!!!

VSwillstay said...

Hey Aspi I am now getting supicious that you are on HR's side - pls dont mark poor Raja down he aint bad and poor guy wasnt croaking - I think HR croaks rather barks. Raja sings well and his songs do touch the audiences - and I find Sumedha a bit overrated and the weakest of the five.

Priti said...

Sept 15, 2027
Once upon a future – when H. Besharmiya (err…ya…he’s still strapped to that title; -- apt tho’, aint it) tried to make amends for his grossly imbecile behavior of Sept 15th (see finally everyone realizes what a mess they have made of themselves), he couldn’t believe himself. He could only croak (spent too much energy throwing fits on the sets of srgmp, buddy), could hardly see – people in love now need to tap him on his shoulders to let him know he needn’t be a fake-o. Meanwhile Vishal and Shekhar, thank Gawd for dignified assessment of musical talent even while pitted against “nautanki ke Raja Himass, strangely supported by the fartsos BL and ID”, come to present a CD of their latest hit with the talent selected from srgmp! Long live VS.
So guys, there is hope – we just need to help each other oust the sullen HR from this show; tho’ we might even miss his “saas ke jaise cheekhna chillana, aur cheezein uthakar patak dena, well nearly”! We might as well do the mace act on him!!!

M said...

Dudes while the whole focus was on sumedha-aneek-amanat love triangle

another love triangle was brewing on the srgmp sets, this one got ugly and there was almost a fist fight. The producers had to intervene and they editted out of the show..

But did Kunal Khemu get your number?

M said...

yeah he flew over here and serenaded me with a deep and meaningful love song
"
What is your style number
What is mobile number

When a guy sings a song like that with so much passion, kashish, dard, love, ihsq, mohobbat, how can a girl refuse?

sparkle012 said...

Hehehe...Meg, the song scenario and the pix are adorable.

And Aspi, I have simply got addicted to this place!

Anonymous said...

sidekick, Mussarat also use to wear the HR rings. I think Himass may have gifted those to his chelas.

Aspi said...

Hi VSwillstay, I'm on no one's side in particular. I pretty much watch the show one episode at a time and try to enjoy it as much as I can.

Over a period of time, I've built a fondness for Himesh's nautankis. Enjoyed the right way, it can provide hours of entertainment. And I also enjoy the singing on the show. Other than that, I don't have a vested interest in anyone.

If V-S do something silly next episode, I'll be here making fun of them in a heartbeat.

girlie girl said...

anon, maybe he's making them wear those hideous rings. Wouldnt surprise me!

Aspi said...

I believe that is the story: Himesh gifted those rings to the contestants. "Wear meri nishaani on your fingers" he said "And all will be well!"

Wonder how expensive they are?

Sidekick said...

Thanks Anon for the info on the rings. Shows how litte I observe ---- it's Aspi's keen sense of the absurd that has refocused my attention on SRGMP. I used to watch only for the singing trying to tune everything else out ---- now I'm much richer 'coz of the extra laughs. Thanks Aspi :)

As for all the hand 'ringing' that HR's chelas need to do --- the extreme tackiness and horror of it all is just delish!

Sidekick said...

P.S.
More on HR's 'ringing' endorsement to his chelas. Apsi, they're reported to be diamond so draw yr infererences on price. Heres the link to the article on the fellowship of the rings:
http://news.indya.com/newsDetails.aspx?xfile=2007/July/News_20070718_184

Saritha said...

Those HR rings r inaspicious,I must say.Shreta and Joy wore them too and they got the boot.

And now Mussarrat.I hope the "lady luck" bestows upon Aneek (and eventually on HR himself) too reliving us of all the pain.

Priti,what a scenario.Cool.
But I wonder do we have to wait for so long?

I wish Sumedha stages one of those on-demand fainting or nervous breakdown kind of stuff on the show and later sues Himesh for mental torture,emotional turmoil and passing defaming and damaging remarks.Then may be a Ram Jethmalani will think twice before defending him.On the other hand,does Himesh need a lawyer?

The way he was walking on that stage holding the mike,when everyone was watching Mussarrat's A/V (Raja,bappi and Vishal were engrossed in a discussion) - he looked like a hunter with a bandook waiting to target somebody.

Soon after that he was like 'Bappi da,U want to say something?Kissiko kuch kehna hai?Anybody?' He wouldn't let anyone talk.Like my friend calss people who misbehave -Rowdy Fellow.

Aspi said...

Sidekick, excellent link! What'd I tell all of you about Aneek being a giant ball of cheese in the Himesh mould.

Saritha, I think you should be Sumedha's agent.

Saritha said...

Holy Crap!!you've got to be kidding.Diamond Rings?Wow! What is Himesh's position in the country's top tax payers list?

Aspi,I'd have taken up that job if not constrained by geography.

Sania said...

I bet they're recycled, as in - voted out? Give 'em back.

anu g said...

Aspi, u say u enjoy Himesh;s nautankis and the singing on the show.I hope u dont mean u enjoy Himeshs singing.My son says that he sounds like he is constipated singing 'ooh ooh' at such high pitches.But I must say he loves his own singing so much, he just grabs the mike whenever he gets a chance!
and about vineet, i did read somewhere that Himesh got vineet to sing a song, but then rerecorded it in his own voice.....am not sure of that news...But in short he is certainly a pain to watch....its a different opinion that some people enjoy pain!!!

Anonymous said...

sidekick, you are right. This blog is making me notice things I would normally not see.

For example, I noticed Vishal and Shekhar's expanding girth after someone pointed it out.

Maybe they feed Vishal and Shekar dhoklas on every episode to keep them quiet so they won't have a go at Himesh....

LOL... when His Highness was going on, I just saw the look on Vishal's face. He looked like he wanted to take HR out. And he definitely can. I wouldn't want to get on the bad side of Mr Vishal.

What gives?

that CNN article deserves a post on its own, aspi u listenin yo?

Priti said...

Yeow mannn! That article sure is hilarious! Guys, letz compile all these gems (the posts here, and Aspi's article), gift wrap them and send them to Mr. HB, the erstwhile HR. Mebbe, just maybe this will drill some sense in him and he will stop his antics on stage; maybe, if we are firtunate, withdraw from the stage!

Anonymous said...

megan, love your article. where do u get the writing skills from? :D

omg i cant wait to see besharmiya's reaction when his 'sweet sweet beta' gets eliminated...
it will probably be the highest viewed video of the season on youtube! beating Mauli's Mayya Mayya hands down.(god knows why ppl want to watch that! >.< anw it's the most watched video on youtube currently)
knowing himesh, he'll probably throw a tantrum - complete with kicking of arms and legs, etc. he'll totally lose command of hindi - we'll just hear him screaming "Ishq! Pyaar! Dulhann! Roti! Maa" senslessly...
Inspired by this, producers will be queuing up to make the sequel of Aap Ka Surroor: Aap Ka Suarr.

What a happy ending, huh? =)
I bet Suemedha and Amanat will be throwing a party (no embarassment). Aditya would be throwing a party too (can be friends with mauli without being teased like hell / can get a chance to speak on stage).

Coming to Aditya, i heard that he's releasing an album in December. he's touring US/Canada in April-May 2008.

Oh and b4 i 4get here are the themes for this week:

Friday - Stage songs (What's that??)
Saturday - Solo/Duet songs (What's that again??)
Special guests on Sunday are Kareena Kapoor and Ranjir or Randhir or watever-his-name-is Kapoor.

Elimination results will be made known at 7pm India time.

girlie girl said...

qwitiqqx, what the hell do these themes mean!? so confused yet, excited! hehe. Anyways, nicely done describing HimAss's future in srgmp. I hope he gets kicked off, and if it means we lose a good singer(I mean Onik)then so be it!

Aspi said...

That article is really funny. And makes fun of the right people in the right way.

But I doubt Megan wrote it. Looks like Manish's handiwork.

Saritha said...

I believe it's manish.

OK....there's news that Sumedha is out this week.So I wonder what will they do now to promote the show.Any guesses?

And best wishes to you Barbie Doll.Take the 5'2 inch life-size Garfield soft toy look alike - Bappi Da along with you.

yeah manish wrote it, i got a.d.d. i have problems typing more than a paragraph..and that too coherently

anu g said...

There was one posting by a very observant person last week who said that the pictures on the wall gave a clue as to who was out next...ands he said it would be sumdha....my ! I am impressed by his observations, but disgusted that this whole show is a sham.......

anu g said...

Oops, i got it wrong...he said it would be poonam who is out as per the fotos....sorry guys! Sigh...its not such a sham after all...I have to learn to be more trusting!!

Aspi said...

Megan, ADD but what about those long(ish), funny posts on the cat and the dream?

m said...

dude but those posts were just like random rambling typed up.. and they weren't that long..

if my posts = Danny Devito
Manish's article = Arnie

Aspi said...

There is always room for a quickie in anyone's day.

Harsha said...

Sa re ga ma has become nautanki but we are still hooked to it. I will be delighted if Raja is on number one spot this time. He had to hear a little too much last week. Himesh made a fool of himself by making loose statements like " raja ke saath sympathy karo. use guilt feeling hai". Truth is all the singers are more or less the same at this stage. I strongly believe Zee should make this emotional drama stop on the show. We watch it for the singers not to hear about singer's personal lives. If Poonam is uncomfortable about her mom being discussed on every episode, judges should respect her feelings and stop raising this issue every time Poonam is on stage. Sumedha also looks really pissed off with this love talk and Himesh you better 'SHUT UP'. Don;t you have to go publicize your already released movie or something else. Just go away and let us enjoy the show. At this stage it will be unfair to attach an emotional issue to every contestant as an additional support. By the way, never heard of any emotional issues about Raja so far. Bravo Raja, way to go.

Rankings are like this:

1. raja
2. aneek
3. poonam
4. amanat (amanat in the bottom 2?!?)
5. sumedha

Yessss. justice is served.
sumedha can sing well but she is nowhere near the rest.

Now let's see what Besharmiya will come up with next, now that both girls (mauli and sumedha) are gone.

Hope he doesn't do anything to my favourite POONAM =)
I would really like to see her in the top2. along with Amanat.

Anw how can amanat be in the bottom 2?????
hr i hate you!!

seems like his masterplan to get rid of amanat is working (NOOO!!!), but the part to get rid of raja is backfiring (YESSS!).

Oh and Manish can u pls write more articles? thanks!! =)

Poor Himesh was too upset to practise his reverse psychology this time, and bhaari pad gaya. H e used to praise Raja so much assuming that people would say 'itna acha gaya hai to votes tho mil jaayenge'. This time he was really upset cos his chosen contestants are out...Aneek was just a lucky-draw entry for him, so unke ego ko bahut thes pahuncha hai.....imagine Raja getting the No. 1 for the songs he sang Last time!!Raja should thank Him (oh, wow, Himesh does think he is the Almighty Him)whose tirade helped Raja earn sympathy votes.
But dont expect peace once Sumedha is out......Him will continue as to how Aneek is missing his girlfriend so much, so there is so much 'dukh' in his voice that he sings so well, and so all Him;s fans must vote for Aneek...blah blah....

dear aspi..
have been reading your blog reguarly with a lot of interest and laughter..want to add my own spices to the stew..dont you think that with all himass'(I love the name!) nautanki ..the show will be a very boring place without him?Having said that,i think he has made it a fine art ...promoting his own candidate (tho onik is deserving) and taking down his competition...slowly and systematically...even confuiz bappida is an asset to the show what with his accent (how can he not pronounce 'Da' after singing in so many bollywood movies is beyond my understanding)and his fab jewellery..onik must have borrowed his rings not HRs ..have you noticed the way he claps?please do...we are howling everytime he does that trick!

poonam wasn't anywhere near the stage at the end. She was probably crying backstage because of that asshole Himesh who always brings up her mom every chance he gets, humiliating her.

Seriously in India if you're poor then people walk all over you, so effin annoying.

Meg - Indians ain't HB!!! :-) he's an aberration! He thinks, (dunno how brain dead people can do that, tho') the only way to win is by getting the "emotional angle" in ("we are sentimental ppl" - Himass Nautanki Besharmiya); letz thank our starts he hasn't cooked up some more tripe. Tho' watz stewing in his pot, we can't pre empt!

Aspi said...

minnie, welcome to the only blog where the comments are funnier than the posts. I'm with you: without Himesh and Bappi (or for that matter the others) the nautanki wouldn't be so interesting.

But then, I've repeatedly said, I'm not a good person which is why I enjoy really bad stuff. Others on this blog have been calling for the nautanki to stop and are more decent human beings than me.

Anu g, kya awesome! I think you have Himesh's upcoming strategy nailed down!

Anonymous said...

I think the nautanki was there to fill in the time and it grew larger as the contestants dwindled.

From this week each contestant is singing two songs so you will see a little less of the nautanki.

I did enjoy the nautanki when it began. Seemed like it was all in good humor but it went a little overboard in the last episode.

I am with you Aspi. I enjoy the bad stuff. And I think of these shows as reality shows where you should expect these things when you are a contestant.

its like when you took rakhi sawant and kashmira shah out of 'bigg boss' it ceased to be even remotely interesting...as you said aspi..I too love the sensational stuff (must be a not so nice person as well :-))..so long HR doesnt start on poonams mom...thats a cheap trick to get votes ..and poonam with her great voice doesnt need it
, her genuine admirers might get pissed off with the repeated stunts..even she looks uncomfortable with HRs comments
also the triangle is geting onto my nerves...sumedha shud sue the pants off himass for this..it is so juvenile..

Harsha said...

Partly it is Sumedha's fault too to not to speak when Himesh pulled her over near Aneek on stage. She was actually being courteous and respectful but it appeared dumb on stage. Speak up Sumedha. You are not a dumb doll.
