Dance India Dance Li'l Masters started three months back and finally India has got it's ultimate dancer. The final five were Om, Rohan, Soumya, Faisal and Jeet. The finale took place today in Pune and was attended by Bollywood star Akshay Kumar. In an intense, nerve-racking finish, Faisal who belongs to Prince Ki Paltan was voted the winner by millions of fans from across the nation. While Om and Rohan turned out to be first and second runner up respectivly; Saumya and Jeet took the fouth and fifth position.
This li'l Master has always impressed the judges right from the day of auditions. People from Bollywood have also liked him and appreciated his style of dancing. The performance which he gave on the day of audition on 'Kyun Chalti Hai Pawan' is still fresh in the minds of the people. Abhishek Bachchan and Ritesh Deshmukh were raving about his fluid movements and charming expressions and have been following his progress on the show right from the audition. Whether it is his artistry with props or the ease with which he makes even the most complicated dance look simple, Faisal is one electric performer who has won himself a legion of dedicated fans.
The evening had some breathtaking performances by each of the Top 5 finalists, their skippers and Masters Geeta Kapur and Marzi Pestonji. While Faisal paid tribute to the golden era of films in his performance, l’il Om was up to his tricks and stunts with a performance that featured malkhamb, lathis and … holds your breath … a human pyramid. Rohan's performance literally was electrifying as he made the lights on stage dance to the same tunes that he performed to. Soumya danced like a gorgeous doll with her performance that transformed the stage into a mini Chinatown complete with dragons, chinese lanterns and umbrellas. Jeet made sure that he paid his idol the ultimate tribute as he danced to a medley of Michael Jackson songs with a 15 foot statue of Michael Jackson appearing on stage. Each of the skippers too added their own flair and punch to performances of their own.
Well, this one was surely a deserving one. Today we can say that our audiences are never wrong in choosing the best.
