SurKshetra, in its first two episodes itself, has redefined the genre of music reality shows. By pitching India and Pakistan's best singers together, it has taken the excitement about music to another level altogether. No, we're not saying this. This is coming from Himesh Reshammiya, ace Bollywood music director and Captain of the Indian team in SurKshetra.
And he should know what he is talking about. A veteran of 6 reality shows, Himesh is by now well-versed with music battles on television. And in his opinion, SurKshetra is one of the most unique shows that he has seen. The Indian Captain says,"After so many reality shows, people want something new to watch. And SurKshetra is undoubtedly very unique. Be it the concept, the score system or the jury, it brings something new to the table." Well Himesh, we certainly agree.
And with this arsenal of uniqueness, SurKshetra is bound to excite fans on both sides of the borders. And according to Himesh, this frenzy is nothing less than what accompanies an Indo-Pak match. Claims Himesh,"SurKshetra is no less than an India-Pakistan cricket match. It has the same level of excitement to it." The only difference being, that the voice and talent of the contestants will strike on this pitch.
Pakistani captain Atif agrees. He says,"Music and cricket are the only two passions in our country. So the level of competition and loyalty will be the same."
Both Himesh and Atif seem to be cricket fans apart from being passionate Captains. SurKshetra definitely deserves all the enthusiasm that it generates, considering the big names and the talented singers that it has. And just like in cricket, we hope the best team wins here too!
