Ladies and gentlemen, the winner is.....

So it’s Abhijeet Sawant.

But what an unconscionable, all-out-of-proportion hoopla it was, the grand finale. The usual half hour they took to announce each elimination dragged badly enough and Sony greedily gave this one two full hours. Not only did it push its two finalists into performing endlessly for the circus, cranking them upto inhuman levels of stress and fatigue, the show didn’t even manage to entertain.

Worse, they ended with that inanest of songs, Mohabattein lutaunga (written, they said yesterday, by Sameer – should’ve guessed!). Worst of all, I found myself humming it for the next hour. Aaaaargh.
