Miss India 2009

Posted by atreyee on April 7, 2009

Ekta Choudhary brought home the laurels in the pantaloons Femina Miss India 2009. With the judges’ list boasting of names like Ajay Devgan, Deepika Padukone and the superbly multifaceted Sushmita Sen, it became quite a daunting task for the finalists to hold their nerves. Logically, a few of them fumbled, the others stuttered and stammered when the notable judges poured questions to them.


Malaika Arora Khan and R.Madhavan hosted the glam show spiritedly and were never short on the required chirp. To bring more effervescence, damsels like Priyanka Chopra, Kangna Ranaut and Genelia D’souza chose to perform on the occasion. Pooja Chopra was the first runner up and Shreya Kishore bagged the third prize.


Shreya Kishore was quite brilliant throughout the show and the spark of her answer was there for all to see. She was quizzed by Mr. Krishnan on what she would choose between family and career and why? Contrary to what the purists would like to hear, Shreya Kishore said that she would choose career over family.


Miss India 2009 winners were an ecstatic bunch. “Pantaloons” and “Femina” are promoting Miss India contest superbly since last few years. The excitement builds days prior to the scene. The grand finale and the denouement befitted the Miss India 2009 stage.

One Tree Hill final season: culmination looms large

Posted by atreyee on March 31, 2009

Is One Tree Hill ending or is One Tree Hill coming back for a 7th season? These are the questions perched on every lip. One of the favorite serials to have donned the television avatar, One Tree Hill will close for this season on 16th May.


Many are already planning a mass uprising for reinstating the serial if its producers wish to put shutter on it. One Tree Hill series finale will put lots of doubts away. Already the build up is ceremonious and it bends towards “series end” rather than “season end”. Afterlife characters coming to join in a life-death circus suggest that One Tree Hill cast might not see camera lights again.


Many are cocksure that this is going to be One Tree Hill last season yet rumors are also doing rounds that One Tree Hill will be back by January 2010 and the serial will leap ahead by four years and skip college for adult life. If that happens, One Tree Hill season 7 may not be received with the same vigor.


One Tree Hill ending this way would be rather sad as the characters still have a lot to offer. We are not tired of Chad, Hilarie, Sophia or James yet. Are we?

Nach Baliye 4 winner – Dancing their way to glory’s path

Posted by atreyee on February 1, 2009



Shaleen and Daljeet, a sheer case of reversed nomenclature, backed the Nach Baliye 4 title amidst sweeping hysteria caused due to the presence of King Khan himself. Nach Baliye 4 grand finale has ably metamorphosed into a TRP giant.


In fact, for the purpose of sustaining its TRP strength, Nach Baliye 4 brings weird alterations and at times illogical presentations (read into the fainting of Reshmi Ghosh). To come back, the day certainly belonged to the very charming and chocolaty duo of Shaleen and Daljeet. They edged past Naman and Megha.


The eventual winners of Nach Baliye 4 lapped up a prize of 50 lac rupees apart from a shining four-wheeler. Many feel that the coveted Nach Baliye 4 winner trophy has been given to the most deserving “Jodi”. In fact, the couple is being recognized as a trend-setter and bench marker layer up till the very middle part of the entire show.


People would couch how Shaleen simply broke the barriers of dance and transcended all boundaries in his charismatic impersonation of Hrithik’s “Baawre”. This probably made the final difference as the voting lines closed after the performance. The last week has been full of melodrama with the top two couples dealing in verbal barbs and banter sometimes going decidedly overboard. Having said this, this might as well have been some TRP strategy.


The central focus of Nach Baliye 4 finale was undoubtedly King Khan and he inadvertently overshadowed the gorgeous Lara Dutta who claimed to have overtaken Shahrukh to the dance fest.
