Sonu Nigam is recovering from an operation and when he moved towards the stage with the support of his crutches, there was a large round of applause. It was the first time in the last two months that Sonu had moved out of his house. Jeet Ganguly accompanied Sonu on a guitar and what followed was an incredible experience. The whole auditorium reverberated with Dard. It was a sensational goose pimple evoking experience. Full marks to the guys who handled the sound for the evening. They did an exceptional job. No glitches at all. The acoustics of the auditorium are brilliant too.
Tanishk Bagchi is another composer to watch out for. Both his numbers, 'Rabba' and 'Allah Hu' are difficult compositions but both touch the heart effortlessly and leave a long lasting impression. Shashi Shivam went into another world as they belted out 'Nindiya'. The live acoustic guitaring was passionate. A special mention has to be done for lyricist Rashmi Virag who has been churning out some really interesting thoughts and uniquely expressing them in a brand new idiom. A special mention also needs to be made for T Series chief Bhushan Kumar who personally supervised the entire evening giving a lot of personalised respect and attention towards all the composers, singers and lyricists.
