Toshi - Main Jahan Rahoon

Date: October 27, 2007  Category: 26th October, Best Of, Toshi

If you read my previous post, I said Irfan’s ‘Tadap Tadap’ was one of the best performance of the day. The reason is that Toshi’s rendition of Main Jahan Rahoon was the best of the night, in my humble opinion. I think he outdid himself in this performance. I don’t know why he has now resorted to playing the emotional card [he spoke about his ill 'bua'] but full marks from my side.

  9. Bishi on October 27th, 2007 10:00 pm

    TOSHI - u rocked man as these types of tough songs are only expected from you….

    Very well said, I think, you really over-performed yourself in this such a souful performance.

    We all truly hope, pray and heartly wish for you to be VOI.

    Bishi,

    Arey Toshi ji..

    I never thought there could have been anything better than Irfan’s Tadap on Friday. But what a performance by Toshi! It touched my heart in a way I can never explain in words. Rongate khade ho gaye saab…

    This is one of the finest performance in SVOI and SRGMP combined! Excellent rendition Toshi..

    Just keep singing like this and you won’t need the VOI title to move ahead..But I still pray that you be in the top 2 and let Ma Saraswati herself decide your worth!

  11. Rovino on October 27th, 2007 11:18 pm

    All of you people have a great problem with very honest person Ishmit. You have no idea that he will be the VOI. I think you do not get the message from the mighty GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD.
    Just watch and see.
    God bless all of you and see the truth comming.

  12. Anusha on October 27th, 2007 11:56 pm

    @Rovino
    Nobody has problems with Ishmeet’s honesty…It is his voice and limited range we have problem with..

    And still if it is God’s wish that Ishmeet be VOI..then hukm sar ankhon par. No one can do anything about that but how much he goes after winning the title of VOI..

  13. AS on October 28th, 2007 12:39 am

    Hi J,

    I think its been a established fact now that Toshi has been outstanding in the show. But what is not talked about is that he is a good learner too..in life! This is what I mean by this:

    He never seemed to have believed in ‘emotional card’ earlier. But when he realised that it works, to the extent that it gives you that slight but a much required push, it was already quite late…He was eleminated!!!

    And he saw not only his other peers playing this card repeatedly, but also the judges…So he tried that once during the wild card round!

    The VOI judges (except Abhijit… Congrats Abhijit… I think you are the only one and a true neutral judge of the show), more than Harshit are trying hard to strike the emotional chords among the audience by regularly referencing his dadi. Somehow I thing these judges sounded very phony when Inrfan’s elimination was announced and Harshit was saved! We are all sitting very far from the reality…Who know what happens behind the scenes. But Toshi has seen all this at a much closer distance! Hint…hint!

    What I mean to say it that, he might have realized that being an accomplished singer is not good enough (unfortunately)…giving excellent performances may also not be suffice. Who knows there could be some tempering in the public votes! If these judges are so partial to Harshit and Abhas in front of the whole world, you can imagine how they would be behaving offline!)

    Also, these judges (except Abhijit) don’t really support Toshi…but they pretend to be doing so becoz of
    A. his excellent performances
    B. Huge public support.

    In the light of all these facts, if Toshi gives a reference of his ailing bua, I think it is *required* to combat similar references by other contestants. Its being pragmatic. And he does not overplay emotional card. After all, everything is fair in love and war!

  14. anjani on October 28th, 2007 1:43 am

    WOW well said AS, spot on..

  15. Sheba on October 28th, 2007 2:07 am

    Toshi out did himself today! Absolutely smashing performance! I simply loved it.

  16. poonam on October 28th, 2007 2:27 am

    I totally agree with AS. very well explained

  17. aryan on October 28th, 2007 2:34 am

  19. nishant on October 28th, 2007 2:44 am

    I must says Toshi Rocks and he is going to be star voice of India as Ismit is not up to the mark . Toshi should only sing sufiana songs .

  20. Samar on October 28th, 2007 2:58 am

    it was alright, i really dont like his new hair color :s

  21. Anand on October 28th, 2007 3:22 am

    Toshi’s performance has improved a little bit, and he did ok on this show. I still think he is not the best, and judging from the comments above, this is all fanaticism. Hair etc. Common people, concentrate on skills. He is a good singer - comment on that.

    Let’s wish them all well - they all deserve our praises.

  22. AS on October 28th, 2007 4:22 am

    Thanks Anjani and Poonam.

    There is something more I forgot to add earlier.

    In sunday’s episode, they showed Toshi’s mother talking. And she said very candidly, if and only if, people like his voice they should vote for him…This is from the mother of a person, for whom VOI is a ‘junoon’, knowing very well that at this stage of competition how much can appeal tilt the balance!

    All the people who think Ishmeet has a good heart , don’t you think Toshi’s mother has a good heart too? It needs guts to talk truth and pure truth under such circumstances!! My respect for her and Toshi has gone up many folds!

    But why his mother only, yesterday he also said, if we feel he should move forward in the show, we should vote for him. This shows not only greatness of heart but also abundance of self trust!

    Btw, I will be really surprised if any of the event management or these album companies or any ’sensible’ music directors have not singed him yet! Unfortunately I do not have any such contacts but signing Toshi is like a sure shot recipe for success! What more can they want? A well trained singer who can enthrall the audience, rather make them go crazy, superb voice and a unique style of his own!

    Before I sign off, on the comments made by Lait and Aadesh that Harshit should sing as close to Kumar Shanu as he could. Looks like Kumar Shanu has hiked his fees and Lalit/Adesh are looking for a cheaper proxy of him! :)

    Mr Lalit and Adesh, I don’t think you need to pay singers from your own pocket (for all playback songs). Can you explain your fanatic obsession with Harshit? Saddly enough, his dadi is blind but why are you people doing the ‘Gandhari’ act for him?

  23. sameer on October 28th, 2007 4:35 am

    mein jaha raho main kahi bhi raho toshi teri yaad sath ho amizing toshi great great sung u r the killer singer rocks man i felt i was with my girlfriend and she left me and i sung in her love that,s its the victory of toshiii my all belssing for u toshiii plz plz vote for toshiii

  24. DB on October 28th, 2007 8:22 am

    Hey AS, I wonder if any one else can speak as candidly as you… I completely agree with everything you said. And about Harshit being a proxy for Kumar Sanu really made me laugh.. wow simply bang on the spot!!!

    About Toshi’s performance, I had heard the song Mein Jahan Rahoon earlier and have heard it a thousand times perhaps cos its one of my favorites. And today, I must say, that no one in the world could hv sung it better than Toshi… His voice has the capacity to touch the deepest core of the soul, and that’s when we have tears in our eyes and he has done this so many times before. That’s why perhaps I’m so much in love with Toshi and his voice… cos he has always sung my favorites.. from Piya Re to Lagan Lagi to Ramta Jogi to Din Dhal Jaaye to Teri Diwani, Sili Sili, Main Jahan Rahoon, Saqi and nw Saiyyaan.

    Everytime he has come back with a bang, and in a more melodious way. He’s voice is not something that can be limited to the bounderies of Bollywood… it has an universal appeal - his voice is a mix of dedication, pain, passion, love and utmost respect for his family and his music and when all these combine, it is bound to transcend all bounderies.

    His performance of Main Jahan Rahoon has brought tears to the eyes of Shweta too who has always criticized him and said that Toshi ’sucks’in previous blogs. That perhaps says what a capacity this man has in winning people’s heart through the honesty in his voice alone.

  25. hina on October 28th, 2007 8:26 am

    mein jahan raho konsi flim ka song hai plz anybody tell me that i will very ver thnakful to u plz plz

  26. Zaki on October 28th, 2007 8:29 am

    I am reminded of a saying previously used by a judge on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa that appropirately describes Toshi’s singing….

    Sacche aur acchhe fan ke saamney kisi soorma (expert) kisi aqalmandi (intelligence/analysis) ki koi haisiyat nahi!

    Toshi is far far far beyond the limited and warped and twisted understanding of the Pandits, Srivastavs and Yagnicks.

    Abhijeet has been the only who has understood the real worth of Toshi from day one…

  27. DB on October 28th, 2007 8:34 am

    I just want to tell Toshi - Mein ho gayi teri Deewani… Don’t know what the outcome of VOI will be, with so much of partiality towards Harshit, Abhaas and Ishmeet. But to me Toshi is undoubtedly the VOI. He needs his fans at every step, even when the show ends and he embarks upon a whole new journey and plz guys be with him always. And now, simply keep voting and praying as that is all that he required at this point of time.

    And also, if any one of you knows any of his personal detail such as … his birthday, e-mail address or other ways of contacting him, then please do let me know.

  28. DB on October 28th, 2007 8:38 am

    Yes hina, Main Jahaan rahoon is from the movie - ‘Namaste London’ featuring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif - a beautiful movie in itself and the music director is Himesh Reshamiya.

    thnks buddy

  30. Zaki on October 28th, 2007 8:55 am

    Friends and Fellow Toshi Fans,

    Gulzar had said this about Beghum Abida Parveen…

    “Unki awaaz ibaadat ki awaaz lagti hai, gaati hain to lagtaa hai maula unki awaaz sunta hoga”.

    Toshi ki awaaz bhi saadhna ki, ibaadat ki awaaz lagti hai.. gaataa hai to yoon lagtaa hai, Maula ruk kar uskik awaaz sunta hoga aur sochta hoga…

    “maine to is Toshi ko itni acchhi awaaz se nahi nawaazaa thhaa lekin isne apni ibaadat aur mehnet se to kamaal kar diy!”

    If I ever wanted someone to make a recommendation to Allah on my behalf…. I would ask Toshi to sing it for me….

    Khuda shaayad Toshi ki awaaz sunkar mere kuchh gunaah maaf kar de….

    Keep singing Toshi…..

    [...] So why don’t you head over to the comments section? [...]

  39. nita on October 28th, 2007 11:47 am

    I think Toshi sang very well with lot of emotions but still I found Irfan sang better and did justice with both of his songs and may be sang better than the original ones.

  40. AJ on October 28th, 2007 12:25 pm

    Never heard the song before. It didnt work for me. A tired voice and too constrained when he sang high notes. I rate Irfan’s as the best in this episode.

  41. Annie on October 28th, 2007 12:32 pm

    I wish Irfan had used emotional appeal… a dadi, gandgi, anything so that he was not eliminated! He was really better than Harshit!

  42. Savita on October 28th, 2007 1:17 pm

    I see that everyone is so obsessed with Toshi. I agree he is good singer. But his voice becomes rough in between. I think in saturday’s episode everyone sung very well. If Hashit’s voice is somewhat similar to KumarSanu, is that his fault? I think if you include all the factors - voice , rythm , and ability to sing all types of songs , I think harshit is the Best and Abhaas next , after him. I think these 2 should go until the end, when , Lata JI will decide who is better.

  43. Savita on October 28th, 2007 1:31 pm

    Everyone brought their relatives, Harshit is close to his Dadi, I do not see a problem there. Jati , Lalit and Adesh , they are no small directors — I have seen they do play some politics in the show , but there assesment that Harshit is over all the best voice for a playback singer out of the remaining four is not wrong. Jatin Lalit have given lots of very very good songs and music , and they can identify talent better. At this point I think all the 4 are singing very well. I think , considering lots of other things , a well rounded playback singer — voice of India - should be Harshit. If everyone was liking Toshi , why did he get eliminated????? It is unfair on the participants who were in top 4 at the time. With all this voting system — the way it looks like - it will be Toshi and and Ishmeet in the finals. Then ofcouse Toshi is better than Ishmit , so lata ji will choose him.

  44. Savita on October 28th, 2007 1:33 pm

    Jatin Lalit or Adesh , they are not related to Harshit at all , why will they be favouring Hashit , if he was really not good?? I have been on this site several times before , and have read all the comments all the time without replying — could not stay quite ant more. Didn’t you guys see what Manoj BajPai said when Harshit was done singing….

  45. ameera on October 28th, 2007 2:57 pm

    yes he is much n much better than harshit n DEAR TOSHI U R EXCELLENTN N GREAT N SUPERB N BOHAT KHUH HATS OF 2 U SHUCH A GREAT VOICE EXCELLENT NO WORDS allah BLESS U.best wishes 2 u!

  46. DB on October 28th, 2007 3:07 pm

    Hey AJ, Irfaan did sing beautifully, but if you have not heard the song sung by Toshi before, then I must tell you that, the original has been sung in the similar manner. Two singers have lent their voices to this song, Rahet Fateh Ali and Krishna. Toshi sung in the exact manner with little variations in the sargams. The high notes in the original is sung in with constrained voice too. You can always go and listen to it from the movie Namaste London. No one before have even tried singing this song where as Tarap Tarap ke has been sung my many earlier and all have sung it beautifully. However, I still agree that Irfaan deserved to be on the show in Place of Ishmeet or Harshit.

  47. Priya on October 28th, 2007 4:13 pm

    off topic but hilarious thing my mom pointed out to me,

    I was and still am thoroughly upset that Irfan got kicked out cuz of har shit… thats right har shit jo bhi gaata hai, har SHIT hi hota hai!

    notice he said if he wins he’s gonna make himself a house and giv ehis car to his parents…

    notice how he didnt mention his blind dadi?

    That shoudl say enough abotu hwo much she means to him, har shit go home!
    gajender bring back irfan, final two Toshi vs. Irfan… best show!
    other wise im boycotting the show and only watching toshi’s performances only…

  48. Siraz Ahmed on October 28th, 2007 4:17 pm

    The two contestants according to me who deserve to be the star Voice of India are IRFAN and TOSHI. IRFAN got eliminated unfortunately because of judges favouring Harshit and giving less marks to IRFAN in spite of flawless performances.

    So all the best to TOSHI. In judges se bachke rehna yaar. Allah tumhe kaamyaabi ataa farmaaye. Ameen…

    Take care.

  49. Haseeb Mukry on October 28th, 2007 4:50 pm

    Hi Toshi….

    I damm care if win VOI or not but u have won ma heart…!!!!!

  50. NG on October 28th, 2007 10:49 pm

    When Toshi sings, you feel the pain and passion in your heart. I love his singing, every song he has sung has his own touch. He does not imitate anyone, unlike Harshit who is a copy of Kumar Sanu. Harshit is a great singer but the judges need to give him a song which is not sung by Kumar Sanu. The Qawali episode I saw, Toshi, Irfan and Abhaas sang Fantastic. Harshit did not fit that catergory. And that ladies and gentlemen shows that he can just sing Kumar Sanu’s songs. It is a shame he has to use his grandmother again and again to get votes. Jatin Pandit in my opinion is someone who fakes alot. His expressions are completely fake don’t know if he is mad or happy or if he uses botox. I hope and pray Toshi wins the show. He Completely DESERVES it. I am a bigger fan of Abhijeet now, he is the only good judge who can set the singers straight. But who knows the other judges may make the wrong decision in the end of the show. I have voted numerous times for Toshi, lets hope all of our votes count.

    Take care.

  51. ameera on October 29th, 2007 12:05 am

    yes judges sy bach k rehna ALLAH BLESS U.

  53. Imran on October 29th, 2007 1:43 am

    Hi Everyone,

    Im from Andhra and living in Bahrain(MiddleEast)dont watch VOI much,but one day i saw a clipping of IRFAN singing Haji Ali in Star News.So,i searched the web for his previous performances after my office hours staying…my office hours from morning 7 to 2.30 pm.That day,i left at 9.30pm forgetting even abt my lunch,i donno wat happend to me,i was just fascinated by seeing his performances.Luka Chuppi… brought tears in my eyes.Infact i noticed that song after i heard irfan singing…and now wen i listen to orginal one…i have strange feeling that IRFAN voice has added more depth to the orginal song.I beleive that he was the most deserving of all the contestants as he has a unique voice.He sang almost all types of songs.
    Oldies of KK,Mohd.Rafi as well as A.R.Rahman and Sonu Nigam.Just see his video of “Tera Jaadoo” and response of Song who sang that song… Truly Mindblowing performance…and a great talent…
    Im feeling bad abt his elemination and still searching on web for his videos…suspecting that i might hav misd wathcing something.

    IRFAN …sach bolrahaa hoon dost..Tera jadoo chal gayaaa………..

    IRFAN if u see this message…i wanna say that u ROCK… Dont lose ur confidence of losing in SVOI,evryone knows the truth that u were the best and most deserving (even the judges ,though some never expressed becoz of their narrowminded nature …so they were partial ).
    Infact…i strongly feel and beleive u will be more sucessful than the SVOI show.There are and there will be lots of talent shows ,but IRFAN is Unique…and there is no comparision.I wish the best things happen to IRFAN by the grace of ALLAH-Almighty God.

  54. pankaj on October 29th, 2007 1:53 am

    Abhas is the best we are here not see how the person look like we are here to say some thing about “Voice of India”. I do not say that toshi is bed he is also good but if you ask a student studing in class 12 to answer the question of 12th it will be easy for him, but if you ask a student studing in class 8th to answer the question of class 12 and he answers the same better than the student of class 12th. Means there is excellance in that student. So please do not go with the physical look just go with the voice which touches the heart Kishore Daa, Rafi ji was also of the same class.

    Body changes by soul remains .. Lots of Blessings to Abhas in his new body and same touching soul

  55. kj on October 29th, 2007 4:33 am

    GOD Bless u Toshi,ur voice realy touch my heart.
    But i realy surprised by the AS comments how honestly he give Comments, i totally agree with him.u have a very good analysis skill.
    i Prey to GOD that he save Toshi from Judges favouism(Hershit), i realy hate that thing. they should encourage talent,not let it to go talent expire in this manner.
    GOD Bless YOu Toshi

  56. nisha on October 29th, 2007 4:48 am

    Toshi Rocks i love toshi

  57. Sweet on October 29th, 2007 5:39 am

    Bahut khoob,MASHALLAH bahut barhiya gaya
    this song is also my fav.
    keep it up Toshi
    ALLAH tumhe kamyab kare
    *AMEEN*

  58. Imran on October 29th, 2007 5:49 am

    I agree with you,after Irfan,i feel Abhaas and Toshi are the most deserving to be VOI .If selection is done only on talent.Ishmit has a good voice,but needs improvement. Harshit… according should be the one to be eleminated at this stage…Truly speaking…If Lalit and Adesh want a dup voice of Kumar Sanu…they could have changed the name of the competition as ” Voice of Kumar Sanu” … and i see HARSHIT no where to be eligible to be the Voice of India.I will be more happy to see even Ishmit in the worst case..atleast Ishmit has his own pehchaan..His Voice…

  59. Zurnain on October 29th, 2007 7:09 am

    I agree to AS’s comment, and it is is quite minutely observed and well explained. i only want to say one thing that when there is a competition, every audience has his/her favouritism, and it is quite automatic. It may not be based on biasness. But showing it as clearly (in the favourof Harshit) as all the judges showed on 27th october when Irfan was eliminated was very unfair and didn’t suit Judges.

    2ndly on the next day the person who got the honour of “ONCE MORE” was Toshi. But the person who was most appreciated by judges and , one guest (Diya Mirza) was Abbhas????
    Judge certainly have more knowledge than audiences, but is the coming VOI for only very learnered singers or musicians or also for Public?

  60. Subha Nair on October 29th, 2007 8:58 am

    Hi to the whole VOI team. I have been watching this programme for long and undoubtedly, it is my favourite prog. Congrats to all. Meanwhile, I would like to point out that in a talent hunt show like VOI, we are trying to bring young talents in light and ‘THE BEST’ should surely be the winner. Contestants appealing to their region for votes is something unacceptable. Voting is done by Indians and the votes are for Indians. It is heartbraking to see in a prog which has such popularity regions, states, and districts (dissecting India even further and further) are brought in and “OUR INDIA” has no existance at all. Even the judges appeal to the people of a particular region or state where the contestant belongs for support. This is totalllllllllllllllly unacceptable in this “CHAK DE INDIA ERA.” Further, if voting is done on the basis of the state where the participants belong to, contestants from states like goa, sikkim, Kerala etc being smaller states would never stand a chance irrespective of the talent. Shows like VOI which has great popularity definitely has great influence on the people of this country. Hence, I strongly suggest that great care should be taken in the coming shows to avoid such public appeals as this questions the integrity of the nation. Region and state of contestants should not be revealed. VOTE for the BEST VOICE should be the motto of VOICE OF INDIA. Also, seperate male and female category should be there for sure because a male voice is entirely different from a female voice.
    regards,

    subha

  61. charlie on October 29th, 2007 10:37 am

    Ok here is the latest update from the sets of VOI….. this week ishmit and harshit will be in suraksha chakkar and surprisngly toshi and abhaas will be in chakkarwaat….. and guess who will get eliminated?? Yes sadly it will be Toshi…. Toshi is going to get eliminated in the latest episode of VOI and Ishmit, harshit and abhaas will be in the final three……… enjoy :)

  62. Annie on October 29th, 2007 1:40 pm

    As each week goes by, I get a stronger feeling that this show is rigged.. and they have already decided who voi will be…

  63. NG on October 29th, 2007 10:09 pm

    If Charlie’s comments are true, then there is no point of watching VOI. I watch this show from the USA, and I think it is UNFAIR JUDGEMENT to let a TRAINED SINGER like Toshi be eliminated. I just pray that the judges look over their judgement and decide carefully. There are much better shows to watch that do give an award to the most deserving if thats the case. I definetely agree with Priya who wrote that Harshit didn’t mention his blind Grandmother!!!! how odd is that. Very Shameful harshit, very shameful!!

  64. Haresh on October 29th, 2007 10:19 pm

    Subha Nair above deserves to be congratulated on a well written letter. This is a classy writer, and he drives the point home very well.

  65. Shah on October 30th, 2007 1:51 am

    last week it was Irfan Who got wrongly Eliminated, if Charlie’s comments are right that we are not watching VOI show but Judges favourite show, or stated by someone VO-Kumar Sanu. Harshit is good singer but he need to improve a lot, Ismeet sings from his heart, Ahbas is good singer but i feel he need to improve everyone goes by his height and have smypathy, no dobut he is good and talented singer but i still feel he need to improve in one or more areas. As far as tosi he is really good singer a compleate singer spl his sufi type of songs are great. One more time its sad to c irfan eliminated, more the way he got eliminated alka was lauging even he is from her side. Really sad to c that.

    Respected producer of voice of India,
    Would you please let me know the purpose of your programme? All judges are unjust. It has been decided by all the judges to give the title [voice of India] to Harshit
    Then why are you running this Programme.Give this title to him and give and an end to this programme.All participants are the best but judges always discourage all except Harshit, they try to seek opportunities to admire him and give more numbers to him. When Abhilasha forgot Mr. Adhes said she was making drama. And when Harshit forgot all judges were near to die all were singing with him. And Mr. Lalit was making victory with his hand and showing Mr. Sanjaydatt.what was this? I am sorry to say this that time he was looking very strange. Every time Mr. Lalit has to tell story of Harshit {once there is a grandmother} and you say you all are trying to give him success. Mr. Lalit everyone has a story and would you please let us know what kind of efforts you are making? You may be dishonest. And Mr. Jatin had no right to say Sumitra should go but Abhas should not go and said after Abhas he could not continue this programme. Very bad Sumitra is also the best and is he sitting only for Abhass? It is clear here is personal like and dislike .Mr. Jatin as apparently looks neat and clean you should be neat and clean inside also. Judges have no right to break hearts and lose confidence others participants.
    Mr. Producer you should change judges every week. Otherwise it will be clear you are making stupid to people. Thanks

  67. gurdeep on October 30th, 2007 4:01 am

    Well i dont agree totally with subha nair, i am from delhi and sikh but i have been voting for abhas and ishmeet. i like their voice quality and am sure one of them becoming voi

  68. Pratik on October 30th, 2007 6:04 am

    Toshi was good. But, I think Mussarat’s renedition in sa re ga ma pa was better

  69. Kashif on October 30th, 2007 8:05 am

    Hey guys, I have read on Wikipedia site that Toshi is the winner of VOI. And everything written there is absolutely true. So I am the first one to tell you the winner of VOI. But anyone of u have any idea how come wikipedia know the winner of VOI so early.

  70. Harold on October 30th, 2007 11:41 am

    Gurdeep, I’m with you on that. I’m for Abhaas all the way.
    Now that Toshi is gone can we all support the little guy?

    I really like Abhaas, but will not criticise anyone else.

  71. asifa soni on October 30th, 2007 12:36 pm

    Hi every one. now im waiting 4 harshit’s elimination after that i will enjoy final of voi im totaly agree with genius as i said b4 this is charity show 4 harshit :) .. wiating 4 his elimination

  72. charlie on October 30th, 2007 1:38 pm

    Frd’s to be very true i knw few contestants of VOI personally… and this monday thr was a huge gathering of ppl and press at ishmeet’s home in ludhiana after d shooting and selection of ishmeet for d final three… neways personally i feel, nw there is some set-up nd fixing btw judges, channel and the director of the show… 1st i heard that it was irfaan who was actually selected by the public for the final four and this week abhaas was the one who got eliminated… the judges on the VOI sets are totally jerks except abhijeet. they are hired just to dance on the songs of abhaas and praise harshit. i think toshi was the most desrving one. but hell nooooo. the creators of the show has something else in their mind. i think abhaas will the winner now

  73. John on October 30th, 2007 2:49 pm

    i personally dont think there is any rigging. People always say this when their favorite contestent is voted out.

    Just out of academic interest i tried to analyse all the comments here. It seems that people with Islamic background are the biggest fans of Toshi. This is not surprising as i assume that they have the greatest appreciation of sufi tradition of the far east. So is is only obvious that Toshi strikes a chord in these listners as he sings almost every song like a quavvali. This is his forte. So anti toshi antifans stop brickbatting. Its not necessary that everyone relates to a song in the same way as you.

    Personally i believe his notes are often not in place and his voice is cracking. There is never an ease in his singing. It sounds painful for sure (pun intended). And he is often nasal. He should really train a lot focussing on sur and also try to save his voice from continuing deteroration. His earlier songs are a lot better than what he gives these days.

    ewwwwww John get a life bro!!!

  75. hira on October 31st, 2007 2:34 am

    this week upcoming result of episode on 2nd november
    abhaas and toshi is in chakarwat and toshi will be eliminated
    regards

  76. sabazaidi on October 31st, 2007 5:22 am

    wow yarrrrrrrrrrrr kia gaya hai toshii ur too gud man mindblowing mashallah asay hi gatay raho inshalah jeet tumhri hogi :)

  77. Aminuddin Abro on October 31st, 2007 6:43 am

    One thing more i wana say that, if you all remember just few episodes before the toshi was eliminated; abhijit said to him (yaar kuchh log chaahty haen ke tumhara khana doosron ko diyaa jaaye, mein dua kartaa hoon ke tumhaari waja se doosron ko mily)

    that clearly indicated that TOSHI will be eliminated soon ……………and……….that happened.

    that means that some of the judges don’t like TOSHI, and you can easily watch their faces while Toshi performs like ALKA

    and i think that they never allow to be VOI,
    TOSHI will not be winner of the show………..even He is the best. no one can beat him.

  78. Aminuddin Abro on October 31st, 2007 7:03 am

    Hi,

    also if you all compare the performances given by (Irfan, Harshit and Ishmit) you find that Irfan was the best amongst them…..why the Irfan Hindustani was elemineted????????

    What the hell ishmit is doing.
    also Harshit…..just bcz of his DADI (blind)

  79. asifa soni on October 31st, 2007 2:50 pm

    its sad that toshi is eliminated this weeek i was waiting 4 elimination of harshit well toshi got 2 bikes and i like his singing very much he was deserving VOI after ifaaan, i wanna see ishmit as aVOI becuase he has sweet and peaceful voice and i bet judges from agni dont like him just bcoz they like harshit and want to see him VOI my wishes and pryaers with ishmeeet and secondly abhaas but not harshit. we miss u irfaaaan

  80. ganga on October 31st, 2007 7:12 pm

    ohh what a pity has Toshi been eliminated??? EVERYONE VOTE FOR ISHMEET!!! MAKE HIM THE VOI AND NOT HARSHIT THAT ARSEHOLE!! THAT ALL THE JUDGES FAVOUR FOR. CANT EVEN SING THAT LOZA..

  81. cool_diva on October 31st, 2007 7:12 pm

    what a pity.. Toshi has been eliminated

  82. Nasir on November 2nd, 2007 3:44 pm

    Hi,
    I would like to comment on 3 things. 1st is, it is Complete injustice to most tallented voice b’cos of your incorrect voting format, I mean to say you have to exclude the state where the contestant belongs to. B’cos the people of that particular state will be having partial thinking, so they are not recognising or voting for the tallented one, they are voting only to the contestant who belogs to their state so I strongly appose your public voting format. 2ndly among all the 5 judges, Except Abhijit Daa other 4 judges are partial, b’cos they are influenced by the person’s background and supporting the contestants who are copying the voice of our Great Singers like Kishore Kumar and Kumar Saanu, where we don’t want the copy of their voice and encouraging such voices. 3rd is out of 5 judges except Abhijit all other judges are partial b’cos there reaction when Irfan got out was clearly showing that they are partial not good human beings they don’t know the values of the human beings and their emotions.

  83. shah rukh farhan on November 3rd, 2007 5:54 am

    V R FRM PAKISTAN,

    JASE THE FUCH FACE THE FUCK VOICE ISHMEET N HARSHEET THEY BOTH R SON OF PROSTITUTE

    TOSHI SANG BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL BECAUSE WHEN TOSHI TOOK THE HIGH NOTES HIS VOICE HAD A KIND OF “KHANAK” WHICH THE ORIGINAL SINGERE DID NOT HAVE IN HIS SONG.

  86. Lucky's on November 4th, 2007 9:52 am

    u r best toshi, u’ll rock all the world no matter, they through u out frm voice of india, and its clear cheating but the world is not blind, U R BEST EVEN BETTER THAN ALL VOI, I PRAY FOR U TO B THE TOP SINGER NOT EVEN IN INDIA BUT ALL THE WORLD ALSO, WISH I CAN MEET U SOMETIME, TC

  100. shusmita on November 16th, 2007 4:01 am

    I have been watching the last 12 shows with my friends during the weekends specially to see the great stars coming out of india.. But we were alll shocked to see singer like Irfan, Toshi and Abhas get eliminated.. THEY DESERVE to b the top three after toshi left half have been it and now after Abhas left we are not watchign the finals at all.. It doesnt even seem worth watching.
    according to a survey amongst 16 people we got ranking as follows 1)irfan 2)toshi 3)abhas and rest dont even come near them

    no one can sing tadap tadap and alvida like irfan, no one can sing piyare, lagan lagi like toshi and irfan and all round entertainer

    Star voice of india really disappointed us
