The dance of Chinnamma Chilakamma

Apparently there are people who work overtime in uploading the videos of Airtel Super Singer 2008 on YouTube. Yesterday's episode seems to be up even from last night. Which is kinda surprising.
It was good for me to have a dekho again and review it.
Anyway here it is for you!

Chinmayee..You are a great dancer too...It was great to watch you with a face full of expressions and grace...I guess the next time you may be in Jodi No. 1 but not as an anchor :)

Suresh Kumar said...

You are not only a good singer but also a good dance tooo.

After watching this show,undoubtably most of the director's are going to approach you for the film.

Keep a nice reply for them...we are waiting...

Keep going...

super performance.. ungal aattam first time parkaraen and it was really good!enna ella episodelayum oru performance unda?

Badri said...

just casually asking...
october 6th episode after the performance of the 3 super singer juniors, you sounded a bit sarcastic... has this got something to do with any harkats or tantrums thrown up by them? esp did they do something that day?

I know you may not be an a position to answer this or publish this, but I had to vent out my instinct and curiosity to someone whom i consider a friend.

Badri said...

I did not know before this that you had sung the Tamil version of Chinamma... nor did i concentrate much on the song till date. But you have done beautifully and added a new dimension to the song. great work...

Lovely chinmayi, Keep it up...

Hi Chinamye,

Yesterday's super singer episode was superb. I think it was a memorable moment for u too. I saw till juniors sang the 'taxi' song . After few minutes, When I came back I was totally confused and was scratching my head. I was asking myself what is happening, few minutes back i saw chinmaye in super singer, now how come chinmaye came for jodi no1. !!!

Big competition for DD.... :)

Vijay TV suiting set mathi poidathamma.
btw ur dance was fabulous.

Keep it up

Hi Chinni,

but meanwhile i felt there are many to dance, but only few are gifted with Mesmerizing voice and you are one among them... Pl dont change ur track... we want to hear from u more... Wish u all success in whatever you do... Keep smiling..

Ramyah Subramaniam said...

Hey chinmayi,

Ur performance was awesome. You and Benny were very cute.I thoroughly enjoyed your dancing. Keep Rocking.

Raji said...

Awesome

Teshu said...

What's your take on your own dance? :) 19 folks said you were great. I think you were OK - because you were quite concious about the touch and hold of the partner. That kind of made you bit stiff in some parts of the dance.

As always am calling a spade a spade. But one thing is quite true - you have the innate talent for both singing and dancing!

your dance was good the grace very thing was nice including your hair its dam long dont cut it

Krithi said...

hi chin,
wow!
ur dance was fabulous! keeep rocking!

Krithi said...

nd Beney was cute:) I loved him!
i knw i shudnt b sayin dis here n ur space, sry cudnt help t!:)

Ragavan said...

I was curious to know how you did on this one. Thanks for the opportunity!

Dance was awesome. Kudos to you. I guess the space limitation on the set restricted some free flow of movements. To me it was apparent that both you and benny were conscious of that limitation.

I must also mention that the segway from your initial position as the host to the performer brokered by Srinivas seemed a bit forced. Certainly a comment for the director of the show.. not you :)

I hear that you choreographed the dance.. well done. In deed. Graceful steps. Keep it up! Hope to do a show with Chinmayi the dancer as the feature :)

Chinmayi Sripada said...

thanks everyone..
Krithi: who said you cant compliment someone else here???!!
Raghavan: I am not a choreographer :D it was choreo-d by Flyerz dance company..

Abilash M said...

Anonymous said...

Hey Chinmayi,

Somehow I had felt as if you were very conscious about your dance and your self during the performance!

Anyhow it was a good one!

Enjoy!

Cheers

Sathiya said...

You are dancing well too.....you are qualified to participate in Jodi No.1 next season;)

Ram said...

Wow! I just caught the episode yesterday in the US! Looks like there's a week delay! Anyways, I thought it was fun, but isn't Super Singer having too much fun? The singers are gonna lose touch in the middle of the season!

Kishore G said...

I did n't know that u had sung this song... I thought you had only rendered "Eemini...Eemini.." Thats an out of the world song Chinmayi...

Anonymous said...

I saw the original video and your stage dance was much better than the original. You ooze with grace. I am really jealous about the amount of talent god has given you and also appreciate the kind of hard work you must have put in to hone ur talent. Will u be part of any concert in Europe in the near future?

Cheers
A Big Fan

I really wish I could also be a part of this lets-scratch-a celebs-back brigade but my since feedback echoes the one discordant note I saw in the comments above... You were way too conscious about your movements and I can even stick my neck out to say you're not a natural. You're a good singer, probably an even better dubbing artist (meaning it here as a compliment) but ur dancing skills(atleast on the basis of the chinnamma song) are akin to Tabu in the 'mujhe rang de' song...

'Netrikann therapinum kutram kutrame'

:-)

- Jupe

Honest question
Do you seriously rate yourself as much of a dancer?

Chinmayi Sripada said...

"Jupe": its interesting to note that you think someone who comments here is "scratching my back" :) maybe its not in your place to assume for others.. and how I rate myself is unnecessary.. and yes of course I was conscious of my movements, the reasons of which I think is not necessary to explain :)

The Wall said...

u dance really well :) Benny also rocked the stage

Anonymous said...

Chinmayi,on the Airtel Super Singer you've been signing off with "Shabba Khair". Curiosity strikes me, what language is it.
Arabic has got something similair but it would be "Saba-al-khair".

ramya said...

hello chinmayee
ur dance was nice in that episode and day by day and year by year there is a great improvement in ur style,grace i am watching airtel super singer for the past 2 years u and super singer rocks
ALL THE BEST CHINMAYEE

Madhu said...

Chinmayee that was a good come back at Jupe! All that aside, I entirely admire you for your talent and hardwork. Keep it rocking!

Thooya said...

Nice to watch...

வந்தியத்தேவன் (நீர்க்குமிழி ) said...

hi Chinmayee,

First, i like the way you compere the show. That in fact made me a big fan of you. You dont see many who pronounce tamil well, who are enthusiastic and come across as intelligent (quick wit). I was first impressed with Anu hasan (cofee with anu) and now you.

Coming to the song here, it's so wonderfully sung that i am doubting whether you both were lip-synching. I didn't hear any gasp for breath or a slight discordant note you would normally hear on a live performance and considering the fast movements that benny was doing...it's quite incredible. do tell me that u weren't lip-synching..! btw, though your movements were limited, they were quite graceful!

Hi wandered around here while listening to chinnamma chilakama on youtube; you look good in this and the dance is nicely different from the original (so complements to the choreographer).

And obviously compliments to your singing:)
