Had been watching the AirTel Super Singer contest from the New Year. Though I do not follow it every day, i do see it many a times. Recently the anchor is changed from Chinmayi to Malini & Yugendran. The effect is visible seen in the telecasts. Chinmayi was doing a decent job, at least we did not search for the remote once she was on the screen. I was thinking it would be a temporary arrangement, but came to know from her blog, that she has permanently signed off from Super Singer.

Regarding the new hostess, I must stay she is not impressive at all.  The way she pronounces Paadal and many other words, kodumai da saami. And has script writer also left the show along with chinmayi? Malini just seems to be delivering on the spot – repetition of the same words, no meaningful content and irritating tamil accent.  You cannot find much of fault with yugendran as he simply holds the mike many a times.

Yesterday’s program was worse since Vijay was trying to cross sell it’s new serial – Roja koottam. For every singer who gets selected on the spot, they were given a rose bouquet and was presented by a actoress from that serial, fair enough. But why should they term it as “Roja koottam” it was ill-fitting in the whole scenario and worse ever it did not even sound pleasant to the ears. But one needs to admit that this reality singer show is much better in the quality of the singers than its competitors. I hope they save the program if not for the new anchors.
