India’s biggest celebrity dance show-Nach Baliye 2, finally began yesterday at 8:30 pm on Star One.It has a brand new stage,brand new anchors and one new judge.The show began with a performance from last year’s champions Sachin and Supriya on the song “Where’s the Party Tonight”.Sachin as usual danced well but Supriya on the other hand was looking huge..like those WWE Women’s Champions but anyway she was fine.It turned out that they were gonna be the anchors for the day.Shabbir Alhuwalia and Sangeeta Ghosh would be the usual anchors like last year.Then the judges were called on.Like last year,it was Malaika Arora scantily clad in something only she can call a dress but looking very hot all the same,Saroj Khan the technical one and the new entrant,Kunal Kohli who has directed movies like the blockbuster Hum Tum and the recent Fanaa.He took over from Farhan Akhtar.Then came the 10 couples one by one.They did look very good together and looked like it was gonna be good entertainment all the way.Here are the jodi’s:-

Out of these ten,Shweta and Raja were the first ones to get Saroj Khan’s whistle and the 101 rupees.Apart from that they also got full 30 points.Shweta was congratulated for her good performance and Raja was told to do better and not let his wife down.The second ones to get the whistle,the 101 rupees and 30 points were Jodi 10 Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar.They were hugely acclaimed by everybody and personally saying,their performance was the best out of them all.The other Jodi’s which did well were Hussan-Tina,Gaurav-Narayani and Arjun-Gurdip.The jodi which was the worst was well,Ketki and Rasik and this was very much expected too since they were the seniors but we should not forget,last year,it was Sachin and Supriya who were the seniors and they did manage to win the thing.Keerti and Sharad were called the cutest couple and Gauri and Hiten were the funkiest but they did get a lot of bad comments for aweful choerography and bad song selection.So that’s how the first day went.

Today,the jodi’s performed for the second time on the Nach Baliye stage.No one got a perfect 30 this time around.The theme was “Indian Villages” and the performances were okay,not as good as they were last time.Narayani and Gaurav(Jodi 01) were the best.And a marked improvement was seen in Ketki and Rasik.Keerti and Sharad Kelkar fared very badly with Saroj Khan saying “Everything was bad”.Shweta finally got a compliment that she was a “lady” this time after having to hear very harsh and controversial comments from Saroj Khan last time.Here’s what the positions were:-
1.Narayani and Gaurav
2.Shweta and Raja
2.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar
3.Tina and Hussain
4.Gurdip and Arjun
5.Shweta and Manav
6.Gauri and Yash
7.Ketki and Rasik
8.Gauri and Hiten
9.Keerti and Sharad
Vote Out:-The first Jodi to be voted out of Nach Baliye 2 was Ketki and Rasik Dave.They were pretty bad last time and hence got the lowest points.They were a lot better this time actually.The two Jodi’s to be left out of the “Suraksha Chakra” were Ketki and Rasik,Keerti and Sharad.And then came the twist,the jodi’s which were safe were asked to vote out one of the two left jodi’s to which they heavily objected saying it wasn’t easy and fair.After a lot of drama,they casted their votes and it ended up being a draw and finally,the decision went to the judges and ultimately,Ketki and Rasik had to leave.Let’s see what happens next week.
Don’t forget to watch Nach Baliye 2 on Star One every Monday,Nach Baliye 2 Voting Special on every Tuesday and Nach Baliye 2 inside session every Friday only on Star One.
This week’s episode was probably the most entertaining I’ve ever seen.The theme was comedy and the contestants really lived up to it.There were a lot of marks and seeti’s.Also came the second voteout about which I will talk a little later.Three jodi’s were tied with 30 points each at the top of the standings.There was a lot of show of emotions too but we aren’t exactly going into detail.For that you would have to catch the recap or maybe you can see it tonight.Here are the marks the jodi’s got….
1.Narayani and Gaurav-18
2.Gauri and Yash-30
3.Shweta and Manav-30
4.Shweta and Raja-22
5.Ketki and Rasik (Voted out last week)
6.Gurdeep and Arjun-27
Shweta and Manav were the best in my opinion.Hussain and Tina were pretty good as well.I thought they deserved a 30 too.Sharad and Keerti were dissapointing again.Gauri and Yash did a wonderful skit on the new and old Don but they innocently blurted out that Karan Johar had helped them with the expressions of Shahrukh which made Saroj Khan pretty angry as it was against the rules.Shweta Tiwari and Raja were average and Shweta as we know starts crying pretty soon and so she did this time too and yesterday was co-incidently her birthday so Saroj Khan as a birthday gift,gave her a 10 but afterwards said sorry because she thought they didn’t deserve 10.Shweta then came out and asked for the marks they deserved and so they got 22.Hussain and Tina did this awesome jugalbandi kinda comedy with Hussain becoming Sardarman i.e. a Sardar Superman and Tina becoming this hot blonde chick.She was looking pretty indeed..she always does lol.Shweta and Manav danced on Jhalak Dikhlaja and Manav had these pillows tied to make him look fat but still he danced very well..they totally deserved the 30 they got.Their choreographer got a gold chain from Saroj Khan.
This was by far the most shocking Nach Baliye episode.The 2 jodi’s that got stuck in the Chakravyuh were Narayani-Gaurav and Sharad Keerti.Then came the chance for the safe jodi’s to vote the contestant of their choice out and with everyone expecting Sharad and Keerti to go,shockingly..Narayani and Gaurav had to leave.It was very ridicolous.Kunal Kohli said he felt the better jodi was voted out and he was true.I surely wasn’t expecting this especially because they were the highest scorers the last time.But anyway,it’s just a part and parcel and the show must go on.
The theme this time around was marriage and there were some nice performances by Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar,Hussain and Tina and Manav and Shweta.Kunal Kohli seems to be way over Hussain’s wife Tina and Saroj Khan seems to be way too angry with Shweta(Prerna).And Malaika Arora Khan for a change wore more clothes than I expected.I guess she was pretty uncomfortable doing something she doesn’t usually do.Here’s the standings for this week…
1.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar
2.Tina and Hussain
3.Shweta and Manav
4.Gouri and Yash
5.Shweta and Raja
6.Gurdip and Arjun
7.Gauri and Hiten
8.Keerti and Sharad
Voteout-The 2 jodi’s stuck in the Chakravyuh were for the third time-Keerti and Sharad and for the first time,Gurdip and Arjun.But thank god sense prevailed into the safe jodi’s and they voted Keerti and Sharad out unlike Narayani and Gaurav which they had done last time.The competition’s getting pretty tight now.
The theme this time was western dance with bollywood flavour and all the jodi’s did really well.The show was very entertaining thanks to the excellent anchoring by Delnaaz and Rajiv Paul.Hussain and Tina were the first ones to perform.They were very consistent as usual.Next came Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar who stole the show yet again with their energy and excellent chemistry.Then were Gurdip and Arjun who did averagely but thank god,did not fall.They were followed by Gouri and Yash who did some excellent Salsa and won the hearts of the audience and the judges.Then came audience favorites Gauri and Hiten and they did slightly better.Hiten’s improvement was commendable but Gauri was still lame.They don’t need to worry though,the people are blindly voting them through.After them were Shweta and Raja who did a nice performance.Actually,Shweta was awesome and Raja kinda spoiled the show.Last came Shweta and Manav and Shweta after having injured herself badly,managed to give a performance that was nothing short of excellent in my opinion.Here are the judges’ points :-
1.Tina and Hussain-25
2.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar-30
3.Gurdip and Arjun-23
4.Gouri and Yash-30
5.Gauri and Hiten-22
6.Shweta and Raja-24
7.Shweta and Manav-27
Voteout-There was a lot of ruckus before the voteout.Hiten did some awesome acting and said that he had a complaint against Malaika.The complaint actually was that it was Malaika’s birthday and she hadn’t told them.So they all wished her and brought a cake and all.Anyway,the 2 jodi’s stuck in the Chakravyuh were Gurdip-Arjun and Shweta-Raja.And this time,in yet another shocking decision by the safe jodi’s,Shweta and Raja had to leave.But they can still come in as the wildcard entry which is a new concept this year.It’s getting tougher and tougher every week.Stay tuned to Nach Baliye only on Star One on Mondays,Tuesdays and Fridays.
Here’s the update for this week.The theme was love and most of the jodi’s did the soft love except Hussain and Tina and they were the definite winners as far as I’m concerned.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar did a very splendid job as well.Gouri and Yash,once again were very impressive with their improvement.Here’s the judges scores..
1.Tina and Hussain-30
2.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar-30
3.Gouri and Yash-30
4.Shweta and Manav-25
5.Gauri and Hiten-24
6.Gurdeep and Arjun-23
Voteout-This week,it was Hussain and Tina the first ones in the Suraksha Chakra followed by Gauri and Hiten and Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar.The last ones to be declared safe were Gouri and Yash.The 2 people who got stuck were Gurdeep and Arjun and Shweta and Manav.And a good decision.,Gurdeep and Arjun had to leave.Next week is the Nach Baliye Wildcard special in which all the jodi’s who had been eliminated,will perform and one of them will be back in the competition.So don’t forget to watch and vote for your favorites.
This week was the choreographers special in which the choreographer could show any kind of dance they wanted and it was a gem of an episode with all the jodi’s giving each other a tought challenge.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar did an awesome job and their choreographer Mini was highly applauded for her concept.Then there were Tina and Hussain who shocked everyone by dancing blindfolded and doing everything perfect.Then there were Shweta and Manav who did this Kathak and they had painted themselves gold and they were looking fabolous and danced very well too.This is what the scoresheet looked like:-
1.Tina and Hussain-30
2.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar-30
3.Shweta and Manav-30
4.Gouri and Yash-26
6.Gauri and Hiten-22
Comeback-As the last episode was the wildcard episode,so this episode did not have any voteouts but one of the jodi’s was to come back into the race and it was the very deserving Jodi 04 Shweta and Raja.Then they gave their performance in which Raja who has always been criticized for letting Shweta down did a wonderful solo and an excellent split which earned them 29 points.
Today was the regional special i.e. the jodi’s were to present a regional dance and it was a rather bad one as neither of the jodi’s did very well.Hiten and Gauri were pathetic,Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar weren’t anything great either.Hussain and Tina were consistent as usual.Gouri and Yash were reasonabely good but Shweta and Manav emerged as the top scorers.It was a rather sad day as Jodi 04 Shweta and Raja had to pull out of the competition because Raja is in the hospital suffering from a Liver infection and can’t perform for atleast a month or so.So,Shweta did her last performance with her choreographer and everyone missed Raja.Here’s how the jodi’s scored:-
1.Shweta and Manav-28
2.Gouri and Yash-N.A.
3.Hussain and Tina-23
4.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar-23
5.Gauri and Hiten-15
6.Shweta and Raja-No Scores(Pulled out)
Voteout-As Shweta and Raja had to pull out,there were no voteouts.Voteouts would resume as usual from next week.So keep voting for your favorite jodi’s and keep watching Star One.
Today was the solo round in which the contestants had the opportunity to show their individual talent and they really did live up to the occasion.It was also Saroj Khan’s birthday and she decided that the best dancer would get the Natraja which is the Indian god of dance.A number of awesome performances were seen and Hussain and Tina reigned supreme.Tanaaz did an awesome job with her Tandav while Yash Tonk god full marks for his rocking hip hop.Manav stole the day with his awesome performance on “Main Deewana” which is a song by choreographer cum singer Ganesh Hegde and it wasn’t easy dancing on this one.Manav eventually won the Natraja.
Here’s the scores..
1.Tina and Hussain-58
2.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar-57
3.Gouri and Yash-52
4.Shweta and Manav-48
5.Gauri and Hiten-48
Voteout-There was nothing to save the jodi’s today.For the first time ever,Gauri and Hiten were stuck in the chakravyuh.The other jodi were Shweta and Manav.Ultimately,Shweta and Manav had to leave as they had absolutely no support from the audience and it was very sad having to see the Natraja winners leaving but anyway that’s a part of the game.Keep voting.You can also vote for your favorites Here.Keep watching Nach Baliye 2 only on Star One
Today was the Quarter Final round of Nach Baliye 2 and it was the “jodi’s choice” round in which the jodi’s had to select a song of their choice.Also,the choreographers were to perform themselves.Tina and Hussain along with choreographers Harshall and Vithall stole the show.They did yet another shocking/risky but immensely beautiful dance to the song “Bahon ke Darmiyan”.They had their hands tied to each other and if they made the slitest mistake,the threads would get entangled and everything would be over but thankfully,nothing of the sort happened.Here’s how the other jodi’s did:-
1.Tina and Hussain-30
2.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar-27
3.Gouri and Yash-26
4.Gauri and Hiten-21
The Choreographers-Harshall and Vithall(Tina and Hussain) stole the show with their flexibility and won the trophy.Mini(Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar) did an awesome classical.Deepak(Gouri and Yash) did a wonderful Salsa while Arvind(Gauri and Hiten) did an impressive break dance.Here’s the marks they got:-
1.Harshall and Vithall-30
The Voteout:Tina and Hussain were the first ones to be safe.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar came up next.Gouri-Yash and Gauri-Hiten were stuck in the Chakravyuh.And finally,the audience had to give up and Gauri and Hiten had to leave.They didn’t say any bitter words but just thanked the audience and the judges for helping them get so far even when the other’s were better.We’ll miss you Gauri and Hiten.
Today was the Nach Baliye 2 semi-final and the remaining jodi’s had to perform twice.Once on the song of the judges choice and then on a song of their own choice.Tina and Hussain as always emerged the clear winners getting a perfect 30 in both their performances.The first one was Malaika’s choice i.e. “Kay Sera Sera” which originally featired Prabhu Deva and Madhuri Dixit matching whom is virtually impossible but Tina and Hussain did a splendid job and impressed the judges.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar got Saroj Khan’s song and their performance reminded everyone of Helen and Shammi Kapoor.I myself,quite liked Bakhtyaar’s performance.Gouri and Yash god Kunal’s song but they failed to do justice to it.
Next up was a song of the jodi’s choice.This time Gouri and Yash did a splendid job.They had their faces painted half in red and half in black and were dressed like bats.They danced to the song “Aaja Gufaaon Main Aa” from the movie “Aks” which had Amitabh Bachchan,Raveena Tondon and Manoj Bajpai in it.Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar tried to do another emotional performance and it touched everyone’s hearts.But Tina and Hussain like always again did something amazing.They portrayed the exact political and human position of India with an excellent performance on the song “Bharat Humko Jaan se Pyaara Hai”.They got salutes from all the three judges and made everyone cry.The hearts were filled with emotions and sentiments towards the country.
Voteout-Tina and Hussain as usual were the first ones to be safe.They got the highest judges as well as audience points.But the jodi that had to leave was Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar.Who could have imagined them leaving after seeing the first episode? We were pretty much sure they were gonna win but destiny had other plans.They lost their final position to Gouri and Yash by half a point and were totally at loss for words.That’s how the semi-final concluded.Don’t forget to catch the final on Star One next monday.
Nach Baliye 2 Mega Finale!
The mega celebrity dance extravaganza has finally come to an end today with Jodi No. 08 Tina and Hussain winning Nach Baliye 2 trophy and the 20 lakh Rs from Jodi No. 02 Gouri and Yash from a huge margin of 4 lakh votes! Tina and Hussain’s choreographers-Harshall and Vithall won the 10 lakh Rs.They truly deserved the prize for having done something amazing and different with every performance.Today’s show was more of a rock concert with all the jodi’s performing and Shabbir and Rajiv Paul doing an excellent spoof on Munnabhai and Circuit.There were also rocking performances by Malaika Arora Khan and the very great Masterji-Saroj Khan.Awards were given for the most dumdaar jodi which obviously was Tanaaz and Bakhtyaar,the most entertaining jodi which went to Narayani and Gaurav and last but not the least,the best jodi which went to Ketki and Rasik.
The two jodi’s fought it out with an excellent jugalbandi in which was included solo male,solo female and jodi vs. jodi.All in all,Tina and Hussain were higher on energy and that’s probably what led them to win.It was the perfect first marriage anniversary present for them which is on the 21st of December.So here’s wishing Tina and Hussain great success in their lives and also hoping that we’ll get to see Nach Baliye 3 soon.Till then,this topic is closed off.Thanks everyone for the huge support this article on Nach Baliye has given me.Taking this opportunity,I’d like to thank every reader and every person who’s ever commented on my blog and has made me to keep writing.Thank you everyone,you absolutely rock!
