    Congratulation to the IDEA of Asianet for having selected the real, Ideal Best Singer, Kalpana
    Unlike last year, Asianet managed to select without any SMS threats a deserved person as the best singer. Kalpana has has exhibited her best talent intelligent. However, I am pained to see that Kalpana could only get the least SMS. We should have been little more impartial in our judgment like the Asianet. None could have sung those two songs of Kalpana, one that was composed by Sharath and other the Western one. Even Yesdudas stood up and clapped and endorsed her talent. Even Antony got his due share from Asianet and also an apt help from Mohan Lal. Immanuel could have been the second, but at least he became the 3rd. We expect such fair judgment in Season 6 also.
    Now an appeal to Asia net. Why don’t you start some quiz show other programmed other than finding singer? Can Kerala expect, Idea Star Mathematician, Idea Star Computer Expert, Idea Star G.K Master or Idea Star Communicator? How many singers do we require every year? Every 3rd youth in state is some sort of singer.

    ASIANET STAR SINGER SEASON 5 FINALE WAS A TOTAL DISAPPOINTED BECOS THE FIRST PRIZE SHOULD HAVE GONE TO THE NATIVE GIRL MRUDALA OR TO IMMANUEL HENRY, INSTEAD OF TO A OUTSIDER,A PROFESSIONAL SINGER WHO SANG A WESTERN FUSION WHERE A COMMON MUSIC LOVER OF KERALA WILL NEVER LIKE IT. THE RESULT WAS TOTAL FARCE BECOS ITHE JUDGES WAS TOTALLY INFLUENCED BY JESUDAS WHO SHOT HIS MOUTH AT A WRONG TIME STATING THAT HE KNEW KALPANA FAMILY VERY WELL ,AND HE HIS HER FAN ,BLAH, BLAH THUS THE CHENNAI JUDGES WERE TOTALLY CONFUSED AND GAVE A ERROTIC JUDGEMENT NOT EVEN BOTHERED ABOUT THE SMS OF THE MALAYALIS WHO SENT IN SUPPORT OF MANO AND MRUDULA AND MADE KALPANA A OUTSIDER AND A PROFESSIONAL SINGER THE WINNER OF THE SEASON 5 AND SHATTERING THE HOPES AND THE PRIDE OF KERALITES. ASIANET IS LOOTING THE MONEY OF THE POOR PEOPLE BY CHARGING RS.3 FOR EACH SMS AND THUS NOT BOTHERED ABOUT THE MALAYALI SENTIMENTS..KALPANA IS A ENTERTAINER BUT SHE FAILED TOTALLY IN HER LAST PERFORMANCE WHICH A VERY FEW GENUIS WILL UNDERSTAND THAT FUSION AND MIRUDALA OR MANO WAS THE CHOICE OF ALL MALAYALIS WHO SANG BEAUTIFULLY AND ENTERTAINED THE GENERAL MUSIC LOVERS.

  9. UNNICHAKKARA says:

    mrudula is not good singer.. she is glamouros… poor girl that she has lost a lot of money… mrudula shouold have been out in semifinals… but to put her through they arranged six people in elimination and gave her life line thoguh she did not sing well.. as far as sms, the winner should have been antony and not mrudula, then akhil and immanuel…. u dont look whthr she is an outsider or sang western fusion… prize was gvn to the right person… if yesudas did not say the prize would have gone to mrudula.. but he did the correct thing…. congrats to kalpana.. asianet has made a lot of money.. y u are not saying anything abt renjini who was speaking only manglish at the programme… programme was in tvm and she also should have said only malayalam…. its better that we need to bring people like jagathy again to such programmee….

  10. Sam says:

    haha Rajiv munkundan is a doofus ! Racist guys like him should be shot at site. seriously !

    I just got one thing to say about Kalpana’s victory –

    “Sms failed, Music won !!” 🙂

  11. krisna says:

    I was watching with a lot of enthusiasm the grand finale show now happening.

    The most unfortunate thing that happened was the two talented persrons were thrown out of competition by the 4 judges unceremoneously throwing all the norms and nuances of music to the wind. I would emphasise it was the judges who did this and not the public through SMS.

    This is absolutely crap and Asianet stand naked in the eyes of the public who invested great faith in their fair judgment.

    This is a farce created on the entire music loving community for it is absolutely obvious the partisan judgment that has gone through this.

    Asianet lost all credibility and must terminate this farce with this episode.

    An ardent music lover

  12. krishnan says:

    agree with rajeev mukundan . kapana should not have been a participant in the first place because she is a professional playback singer with over 300 songs to her credit .she has also sung under the baton of ilayraja . in such circumstances she was way ahead omong the contestants .no doubt she was good but how would it be say if singers like franco or sayanora or vidhu pratap had to participate in the same event judged by the same panel .to be fair to her she overcome her personal misfortunes and did well till the finals but the yardstick should have been the same for judgement while judging others too .

    regarding unnichakraS comment regarding ranjinis manglish it would seem a bit mispaced . if this was an entirely malayalam show then there should not be any songs from other languages other than malayalam .also judges should be malayalees only which is not the case here with judges like mano and usha uthup (who though married to a malayalee is more fluent in english and tamil )being part of the show

  13. Nathan says:

    This refers comments of Rajive Mukudan against the selection of Kalpana as the Idea Star Singer Season 5.. I oppose your views.
    SMS should not be Sympathy Mail Service or Securing Marks System ( Suthram) . However to certain extent SMS can be there, but it should not be the sole deciding factor .
    If any one find that Asianet do make money in ISS then what is the big discovery in it ? They are not running a charity business. However, unlike last year they gave ISS a touch of honesty , correct judgment and also did lot of charity also.
    Last year Season 4, my comment was against selection of Joby. He go sympathy SMS and won. When it comes to the ‘selection of the best Singer, sympathy factor should take back seat. You can show your charity temperaments in many other ways. There should not be any reservation or prejudices or favoritism, based on cast creed and religion, physcial beauty place of birth etc. Selection should be solely based on the singng and entertainments talents. To prove that point ,I also said, during Season 4 that, down the line after a year or so one could judge whether their vote was correct or not. Now, where is Joby and where is Sreenath and others who could not win? Anyway, past is past and do not repeat the mistake again. I also requested to bifurcate price money in such a manner so that there should not be much difference between the first, second and third winners. Alas! Assailant continued with same price money set up.
    RajivMukundan should understand that when it comes to Music there should not be parochial consideration. A Malyalee leering Tamil fast, is normal. But a Tamilian learning Malayalam as fast as Kalpana did was awesome and rare. When so many Malayalee dominates Tamils Music World, there should not be anything to say bad about Kalpana, a half Tamialian gets prices in Kerala also. Yar, we are Indians, besides Tamil Nadu is our very good neighbours. Let Kalpana is our Ambassador to TN

  14. V. Mukundan says:

    This result was rigged. Asianet is not conducting an opera show. ISS is a platform where the singers shud have been judged on their ability to sing Indian music. The decision to pick the winner on the basis of judges opinion could have been considered fair has that format been followed throughout the season. The sudden decision not to consider SMS’s was stupidity at its worst. Then why did they show SMS scores frequently if that did not count. The success of the program has clearly gone to the head of the organizers who now believe that they can get away with such blatant cheating. Kalpana DID NOT DESERVE TO WIN. SHE IS A DRAMA QUEEN. Why wud anyone take the camera team to the cemetery of her husband and then film her crying there? Is this not dramatics of the worst type? Asianet has got stooped to gutter levels just to get ppl like KJ Yesudas on their side.

  15. UNNICHAKKARA says:

    if kalpana cant win the show, its the fault of asianet, becoz they chose her to participate… we cant blame her for winning..becoz she did well to win it… regarding other songs.. the final round was favourite song round. all the three sang tamil and western.. y noone is criticisng other two for not singing malayalam… we need not be partial to our judgement.. she deserved to win….regarding the judges tooo.. they are chosen by asianet and not the people.. if we choose, there wont be any stupid people like sree, usha and others.. lets not forget that kalpana is a good singer…….

  16. J.J.Pereira says:

    Kalpana has won the the show only because of great Dr. K.J Yesu Das Sir’s standing Oviation after the final performance .

  17. Harry says:

    If some one claims that Mridula is only glamorous- he must be a deaf person and quite out of his mind. Here is a contenstant who like Kalpana consistently appeared in the Top 3 in the different stages. Came into Danger Zone only once that too because of throat illness.
    Singing the difficult songs of S janaki (unrunaroo) and Chitra (Karmukilvarnnande) is something only a proper singer can do- You cannot sing with glamour

    If in the fusuion kalpana had sung a proper song with lyrics – one would have considered accepting the decision
    Favourite song is something which is really your favourite – not a product of your experiment in music class.
    Song with Dum dum and la la la – is not a competition winning material at all

    To top it all, Chitra and Anuradha were guilty of giving standing ovation twice – in the Challenge and the final song.Yesudas did that after the last song

    Finally he capped it by saying that he knew Kalpana since she was a baby and used to sing with a small harmonium – so what – you cant expect every singer to know people like Yesudas- That does not qualify enough to discard the audience’s SMS

  18. Prabheesh says:

    Dear kalapana Supprters

    There is few thing against Kalapana according to me..
    1. She had stpped singing in her two performances and got 80+ marks.Remember in ISS season 3 vivekannandan got only 40+ when he stopped singing
    2.In finale kalapana sang western..But any of our judges and the honorable K.J.Yesudas
    is not aware of western music. Then how could they say that was a brilliant performance..?
    I think she trapped them by singing western..
    3.More over she was a very good actress unfortunately she didnot get any sympathy from audience as audience always support the best singers……..(SMS count says that)….
    …but she won it in the case of judges
    and MANGLU RANJINI
    According to me…..Mridula deserved the title…
    This is very unfair to Asianet and ISS program….

    if “Sms failed, Music won !!” as SAms comment what is the need of SMS and
    why kalpana asked to send SMS after each performance..????

  19. Prabheesh says:

    One more thing, the worst judge title goes to Anuradha………

  20. SW says:

    There was very clear announcement before the round by which the rules allow the contestant to choose their favorite song to impress the jury; here the prime aim is to impress jury through the singing talent, it can be in any language and any type; The rule never said that it should be from a film or it should be in Malayalam, or it should have lyrics that everyone will understand and so on…will you understand the lyrics from all Indian languages at least? What lyrics attract you while listening to an opera? Or pure instrumental music? it is to do with the music not the poetic part of it. It was better than lot of vulgar lyrics now a days heard through film songs. One must be ready to appreciate music in a song.

    Asianet is not running an opera show but it hardly runs any specific show. In this show it gives opportunity to perform all types of songs. There is nothing wrong in Kalpana’s selection. It is not that because she knows Dasettan so she won. What we saw was the value and respect that the people of Kereala attach to Dasettan and his words. He did the right thing at the right time!

    None of the other contestants in the history of this show so far staged could sing those two songs.

    If that song was featured in a film, will that alone satisfy you? Kalpana has been performing in this show from the start of Season 5 why you have not discovered so far, that she is from Tamil Nadu or she is professional? So, how is it in your opinion, if one is failing, can one participate even being a professional? only when she wins these became disqualifying factors to you? Can Udit Narayan sing in Malayalam movie then why not a girl from Chennai cannot sing in this show. this is a show to find talents, and there is nothing wrong if a talented person participates. The more you restrict the scope with your imaginary and biased rules, you will lose to find good talents around. we should be broad minded enough to stop such rigid thoughts. Let us appreciate Kalpana’s hard work.

    SMS is a meaning less criteria other than the business for Idea! when one person can send multiple votes, the number of votes are not really the acceptance of the participants. Moreover, the one who sends vote, need not be knowledgeable to judge a talent.

    The SMS miserably failed and talent won!

  21. Deepa says:

    Friends,
    Just watch and enjoy the ISS show. Don’t send SMSs to candidates because we have seen that they do not take much into account our SMSs. It only makes phone companies richer and us poorer…..

  22. Baju says:

    Asianet’s panel of judges for the final show were perfect for ISS Season 5. They did their independant judgement and their final result was announced by most respected Padmashree Dr. K.J. Yesudas. At stage he expressed his purely independant opinion how Kalpana sung in the final round. He clearly told at the same time that it was his opinion, whatever might be the result. No one can state it as favoritism. Those were the words of a folk who love music, understands music and live in music. That’s why he is being called as ‘Ganagandharvan’. Before the beginning of the final round, it was announced that the song can be sung by the participants in any language. Langauage was not a barrier. Otherwise, Idea Star Singer name may be changed to Idea Malayalam Star Singer!! Regarding Renjini Haridas. She is an icon of Star Singer show. No doubt about it. Why people critisize her? She adds color in each stage of the ISS show. Don’t be envy about her. She speaks good English (without mistake) in between? is it a disqualification? Increase in viewership may be because of her talents also, which quality i couldn’t find in any of such presenters, rather they try to copy her. Just understand that ISS show is telecasted worldwide. I employed in Delhi. Friends from Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu who loves music also discuss with me frequently on ISS show. There is no language for music. Don’t we people (Malayalis) participate in Hindi Channels and won prize? Is it a crime for a Tamil girl to participate in ISS? A true Indian cannot say this. We should appreciate her efforts, that how fast she learned to sing in Malayalam accent!! . Finally regarding judges-One of the best panel of judges. My message to the Hon’ble judges – You have done commendable job. Kindly ignore heart throbbing comments by those ignorant people, who love SMS than music.

  23. m k moorthy says:

    Why to congratulate a winner which was not as per rules. People should congratulate only the winning singers who are fresh for the field, like Mrutula, Anthony, Immanuel. It is really a shame on the part of Asianet who has selected readymade professional singer, as a winner. If Asianet was to select Kalpana (already a professional singer ) as a winner of ISS, why the season 5 was required . She could have been directly selected her without season 5, which means, was the season 5 of ISS aimed only to select Kalpana?. I fully agree with the comment of Mr. V. Mukundan. Judges should have rejected the fusion song sung by Kalpana and no marks should have been given. Asianet has fooled the viewers of ISS.

  24. satheesh says:

    Dear friends..i know this is a very much used site about idea star singer.i was als a fan of the most popular show..so i feel this s the right plac 2 expres some f my doubts about season5 grandfinale(plzz note that m not blaming the contestants cz m a fan f most of them):::

    {[Before that,jus reminding u about the way season4 grandfinale judgement ws made:
    1.judges marks of each contestant wer displayed.
    2.sms counts wer constantly displayed
    3.sms counts of each wer proportioned to a total of 5 marks
    4.it was then added to judges marks to get total marks
    5.Elimination ws done accordingly & prizes respectively.
    #seems to b flawless]}

    *#SEASON5 grandfinale#*:—
    1.JUDGES’ MARKS WER NOT AT ALL DISPLAYED AT ANY POINT OF TIME,though ranjini 1st announced about the judges marks method as each of 4 judges giving marks out of 25 for each song!@!!!!!!!!!
    2.SMS COUNTS WER DISPLAYED ONLY TWICE OR THRICE,and that too showing a difference of ONLY 40votes,nearly 500 votes,and nearly 1000 votes for 3 of 5 finalists(WHICH IS UNNNBELIEVABLEEEE),while the other 2 of 5 had a rise of 30000 and 12000.
    3.Even at final results,SMS counts wer not announced/displayed and wer not made to any proportion(out of 5 or 10 or whatever be it)
    4.and most funny,THER WS NO TOTAL MARKS(judges marks +sms ratio) while eliminating or declaring the most final result!!!!!!!
    5.my personal experience..you dont have to believe it..AFTER SOMETIME DURING LIVE SHOW,VOTES WER OPEN ONLY FOR 3 CONTESTANTS.2 WER BLOCKED.SMS REPLY CAME AS NOT SENT FOR 2 of them,WHILE @ SAME TIME,VOTES 4 OTERS WER GOING FRM MY MOBILE ITSELF.but may b SOME NETWORK PROBLEM..ok..
    6.NOTE::After the 1st song of 5 contestants,Ranjini announced that THER WAS AN ELIMINATION and one is going 2 b eliminated,and contestants wer asked to get ready 4 that.After some backstage discussions,THAT RULE WAS CHANGED and ranjini announced that THERS NO ELIMINATION THEN..
    WHY?WHY?WHY?
    VERY NICE!!RULES ARE MADE JUS TO BREAK IT ACCORDING TO CONVENIENCE..NICE..SUPERB..(PLS NOTE THAT JUS B4 THAT,THE DISPLAYED SMS COUNTS WER:ANTONY,IMMANUAL,AKHIL IN THE RANGE OF 35000,MRIDULA 28000,KALPANA 5000)

    $$Counter arguement:This is a music competition.its music that should b valued.
    $$Reply:If so how come Antony overtook Deepak,shabeer,athira in semifinal when antony ws 12 marks less than deepak?

    $$Counter arguement:but antony is financially poor.
    $$Reply:(1).please allow only financially poor ones to the audition of season6
    (2)Let the middle class & rich talents take rest at Home
    (3)let judges & organisers giv poor contestants a share from the profit of show

    $$Counter arguement:in grand finale,mere sms shudnt b considered.
    $$Reply:Then damn it,they cud have said so earlier so that public dont hv 2 waste money.

    %My conclusion this time:FRENZ..THIS IS A PUBLIC ROBBERY.THEY WANT OUR VOTES MONEY SHARE ONLY &DISCARD THEN INTO WASTE BASKET TO REACH THEIR PRE-FIXED RESULTS..PUUBBBLICCCC ROBBBBEEERRRY..PLEASE STOP UR SMS & VIEWERSHIP.THEY THINK WE R AL FOOLS…
    anyway,its upto you.I dnt knw how to react to al these..

    nyway,all the finalist r xtremly talented.their singing ws f a very high professinal standard..best f luck 4 them.

  25. jcherian says:

    First let me congratulate the winner Kalpana. But did she deserve to win that is a question.? I have passed music exams from the Trinity college of Music London 20 years ago in different instruments, oral singing and theory and I am a professional Indian classical dancer too . People who have the capacity will get training from experts in respective fields. A professional should not have been selected in the first place for this show as it is a show for exposing the talents in Kerala and not enhancing the earning capabilities of Professionals. If SMS has no value it should not be allowed and thus in this show the public were made a fool of. Sentiments should also not be a factor while deciding a show based on talents. Showing the cemetery and tears at a loved ones grave or another family situation is stooping too low for a well placed channel like Asianet.Many of us have also lost loved one and suffering from incurable aliments and every minute is frightening whether we will live or die but this should not be a factor for winning. There are many in this world who are under great suffering of different kinds. Chief Guest especially Legends like JESUDAS should Keep their opinion to themselves as they were not called to Judge the show. Knowledge to Judges or anyone in the film industry and being professionals should be barred for this programme in future at least. We are all Indians and should stand united that is our strength this was not the case above. Danush an tamil actor made a comment of Vijay tv super singer show finals that people of other states and those who have more expoursure should here after not participate in talent shows for that state and I feel it is right . THIS should be a show to encourage and show the talents of the people of Kerala or who have rationcards holders in that state only . Each state has different talent shows of their own. If we do not help our children then who will? And as a NRI it gives me pleasure to see Malayalees in these shows and inexperienced people who have talents and need some one to help these people and not PROFESSIONALS WHO HAVE HAD VAST EXPERIENCE IN THE FILM INDUSTRY.Any mature adult who has good sense will understand this and not think me racial. I am proud to be an INDIAN AND WILL ALWAYS FEEL SO.

  26. Jaison says:

    Let this to be a good lesson for all the music lovers of Kerala. Your opinion does not count, only the money you payed for sms. I hope we all learn a good lesson from this scam. Everyone knows that Kalpana shouldn’t be the show to begin with. I have nothing against tamil or tamil people, some of close friends are from tamilnadu. Idea star singer is meant for the young talents of kerala, not for the whole world. Asianet is a popular malayalam chanel, and broadcast and promote malayalam and Keralam. But They failed miserable at the Idea star 5. The whole show was fixed from day one. Everyone knew from the start Kalpana is going to win. I suggest Chitra, Anuradha, Sarth, and M.G should be contenstants in idea star season 6, I am sure Anuratha will win. Forget about the hard working young malayalee young people, they are there to show their brilliant talent. They are not playback singers or movie actors. Season 5 the judges were completely, unfair and bias. During the finale they change the rule to accommadate Kalpana. I can tell you the malayalee people arround the world are unhappy with Asianet. Dear chitra and anuradha it was unfair for you to give a standing ovation to Kalpana, that shows how bias you are. Even the ordinary people in that crowed didnot follow you on that, you should be kept your feelings yourself because you were judges. Even Dasatten’s comments about Kalpana was unfair, he had a lot time to say those comments after announcing the winner. I am glad Sarath stepped out, but what we got again Anuradha and Hari Haran, very bad combination. Please bring back judges like Ousepachen, Unnikrishnan and Venugopal. In kerala we have more brilliant music composers and music judges than any other part of India, then why we have to import people from other states, people can’t even speak malayalam. Asianet please clean uup the show or just stop it. Please don’t make malaylees arround the world fools again.

  27. Nathan says:

    Whatever you say Kalpana earned this award because of her talent. There is no meaning in telling that she was professional etc after allowing her into the completion. Then we should legally define what is meant by ‘professional signer “. Does singing in one or two films, make one be categorized as ‘professional”. If that is the case then there was couple of professional singers in this competition who eventfully got eliminated.
    If you are allowed to sing only Malayalam Songs, then how many different songs they could sing every season. It will be like playing gramophone again and again. Many Mallus like Tamil, Hindi songs and not much ( hardly any) Tamilians or North Indians like to sing Malayalam songs. We cannot shut our eyes and ears to this bitter fact.
    Coming to Ranjini Haridas. She has become part of the show. An anchor should be like her. Her’ Englilayalam adds color or a different sound to the show. She is a thorough professional and remembers names of all and guides the show properly.
    OK let us stop this quarrel for these Singers. Why can’t’ we appeal Asia net to start some other shows other than conducting ISS every year. Can Kerala expect, Idea Star Mathematician, Airtel Best Computer Expert, Reliance G.K Master or Nokia Star Communicator? Tell me Yaar ! How many singers do we require every year? Every 3rd youth in state is some sort of a singer.
    Or do our youth of Kerla stick to these slogans given below .
    Etha Varunnu Etha Varunnu
    Kerla Yuva Janatha Etha Varunnu
    Pattu Padiym Nritham Chaithum

  28. Kurup says:

    To those who are praising Kalpana’s final round song, let me ask them one simple question – Did they ever enjoy listening that song – ThuThu Thu Thu – It was a real Thuthu thu song

    Songs should me soothing to the ears and shud touch our hearts – That is all a layman expects – Who is bothered about technicalities –

    The worst part is Dasettan saying that Kalpana should have been born in America and that only because of her karma was she born in India. So is he trying to belittle Indians? I never expected this from him. All these years I was taught by my parents and granparents that one shud have done punniya in one’s previous births inorder to have been born in India.

    I think it is better that Dasettan take back his comments

  29. UNNICHAKKARA says:

    ellavarum kalpaneye kuttam parayunnu… enthu kondu avalude kasivu manasilakkunnilla….kalpaneye kuttam paraunnavar ellam asianetine kuttam parayanam.. judgesne kuttam parayanam….if she cant win the show, they why the hell she was chosen for it…. there were so many non malayalees in the show and also judges.. why should you bring them all.. if the winner needs to be malayalee then all the contestants should be malayalees.. there were other professional sngers inthe event..why noone is talkng abt them… dont be jealous of the winner since she is not malayalee…..she is talented and a good actor… the show became more popular with her songs and not of any other stupids escpecially mrudula.. all the others were just following what kalpana did.. the variety in all the songs were brought by her… u could see the partiallity of the judges towards mrudula very clearly… though she did not sing well in some of the songs, she was bestowed with good marks, while the others those sang better than her, was gvn poor marks… some stupids say that she never came into elimination but she was there in the semifinal.. throat [roblem is not an excuse, if they cant sing well thats it….in a competition there are no excuses…. do you think she sang better than others in the elimination… shabeer was the better one in the elimination… but mrudula was gvn lifeline and the one who got more marks was eliminated…. why no one is questioning it…. let us understand the reality. that this programme makes asianet and idea richer and we malayalees who send sms wil become poor……..

  30. SW says:

    Mr. Kurup,

    In a competition, technicalities essentially have a place. If you are not bothered, you can not make sweeping statement in general like this. It is difficult draw a boundary line between laymen and learned. knowledge is such a thing as you more listen, you will gain over a period of time. Dasettan was mentioning the kind of poor encouragement in our country for western music. Only because you did not like the comment he need not take his words back. There are a number of people still believe what he said is apt. Have a little more tolerance about other’s opinion. Everyone has a freedom of expression without insulting other citizen. If you do not enjoy or you do not like, no song will become Thu thu thu as you expressed. it is a way of presentation in western music. Like Tha da ri na in carnatic music. Tha da ri na brings any enjoyment to you with its meaning?! hope it is not…
    SW

  31. Baju says:

    Kurup,

    There is no machine to measure who sung well. Hence Asianet appointed talented team to judge the Song. It is their duty to judge the star as per the parameters set for it. If ISS Season 5’s show and judgement went wrong, then there might not be this much of crowd at the venue till midnight and the TV viewership will not be there. People eagerly did watch the show till end. Kalpana’s song might not be soothing to your ears, but may be to many.

    You didn’t understand or not tried to understand Dasettan’s comment that “Kalpana should have been in America and …about karma” He referred to that if Kalpana is in US now, then she might be a star. He was not disparaging India, but he was admiring Kalpana’s Talents. Please don’t avert Great Dasettan’s blissful words…

She decided to sing western because it cannot be judged easily and can be an excuse. but we had no trained judge for western in that judgin panel and she shouldnt have allowed to sing western, which makes everybody fools. In fact, Kalpana was just crying and lots of out of pitch in her first song, second song was below average and the third one was just a different language not a complete song, just like her haleluya in one of the danger zone. and it is ridiculous to give her the title of the programme. in fact i doubt, kalpana is very sneaky woman. she might have offered paying back 1 crore to asianet for choosing her to win the title. Also, i also doubt she made her all effort to get this title won and presence of yesudas (she might have paid all expenses including airfare hotel accommodation of yesudas famiy) If yesudas wanted to tell his opinion at that point of time, there was no points of all rounds and 4 judging panels, who wasted their time to judge the contestants. In my opinion, Immanuel Henry was the right person for the title or worse by Mridula warrior. This was fooling all Keralites and it should not be happening again.

    Baju,

    Your statement Kalpana’s song might not be soothing to your ears, but may be to many holds no credibility. Ask me why?

    Had it been so, she shud have got SMS numbering in lakhs. But that wasn’t the case.
    That’s why I say her songs can be enjoyed only by muscical geniuses like you or Dasettan.

    SW,

    Your statement Dasettan was mentioning the kind of poor encouragement in our country for western music.

    I pity you – Name one country where encouragement is given for Carnatic music . I do know that there are no barriers like language or country for music. But in a competition, being held in public , certainly Western songs shudn’t have been allowed. If they are allowing it, then special judges well versed in Western music shud have been called to judge the performance.

  35. Jai says:

    Kalpana is a good singer, no doubt…and congratulation to her, Makkal and Dasettan.

    Here the question is why did asianet support her so much….what is the strategy behind it?

    Q1. Why did they try to work out sentiments by showing a grave, when Kalpana’s husband is not really dead ? They are just divorced!!

    Q2. Why did they conceal SMS votes? What is the contribution of votes in final marks?

    Q3. What were the criteria for selecting songs in the finals? How can the judges compare Semiclassical songs with an Opera number? What was the time limit for each contestant?

    Q4. Why was the orchestra not played live for Kalpana? When they played the instruments live for Kalpana’s second song, she terribly faltered!! Where as Bhavayaami and Opera were minus tracks! Its comparatively easier for a singer to sing along with Karaoke, than live instruments on stage. Why such discrimination? When Mridula sang her final song, the Mrudangam guy messed up things, and she smartly tackled the situation. Akhil’s classical song was murdered by the Violin player, who had tuned his violin a seminote low.

    Q5. Was that comment from Dasettan innocent and natural? He is the Ikon of Malayalam music and he very well knows the fact that any result against his judgement would have sparked controversy.

    I will not be surprised if Asianet launches ISS in tamilnadu soon as such music reality shows are far beyond reality and meant for profit making.

    That applies to any channel for that matter…

  36. SW says:

    Dear Kurup,

    “If they are allowing it, then special judges well versed in Western music shud have been called to judge the performance.”

    I 100% agree with your above statement! none of the judges were qualified to judge that performance. There are capable people but they were not assigned for this event unfortunately.

    Coming to the other part of your message, more audience in overseas carnatic concerts always has from the native public even without knowing the depths they clap and encourage after each song that shows how cultured they are. Our people even while enjoying will not show it out even by clapping. Instead our people howl if someone sings a classical song. Dasettan himself is unable to perform a full concert with carnatic songs because of the public demand for film songs. When he sang a classical song from the film the audience were happy in Kerala. He himself used to quote these incidents in many occasions.

    I do not thing that you have some special feeling against western music. A good music lover improves as he listens to more variety of music is my personal perception. Ilayaraja is a good example for this. he is equally proficient in Carnatic and western music. He first learnt western then later came to carnatic music.

    Why we need to balance the amount of encouragement that other countries give to Indian music against that we give for western. Here, the show’s rules never say against the western songs used. In indian films also there are lots of western music used.

    The judgment was on total talent is what we must understand. There are malayalee singers who wins prizes in Tamil TV shows in last couple of years. This also yet another situation like that.

    Dear SW,
    There is no feeling against western music among malayalis..but remember ISS is a singing competition…Not only tastes but also singing perfection should be valuated…
    No judges in the panel can evaluate the western music perfection in the ISS panel….
    Then How could it possible..?

    Your coments..

    can u answer me
    which malayalee won prize in Tamil TV show singing western music in western language…?

    2.In indian films also there are lots of western music used.

    Can u answer me
    which western music used song or singer got national award for his singing or song?

    Remember ISS is a competition of singing perfection.

    In a singing reality show the perfection of singing should be valuated that the contestant performs….I think Honorable Padmabhushan K.J.Yesudas too is not aware of western music
    more …
    He should have avoid the statement that he made in my point of view….
    Title should be given in the point of singing perfection and performance and not on
    the drama created by the contestants. Kalpana is a very good actress among judges.
    Especially on Anuradha who gave standing oviation to kalapans performance at the finale. Anuradha is not an oridinary audience she is a judge. So she should show the value of her seat..

    Hats of Mridula ..u were excellent through the entire stage of ISS..

  40. Sandy says:

    We should congratulate the winner as we can have only one winner. The choice would have been based on viewers(people who followed the episodes and enjoyed music of their favourite contestants )and the expert judging panel, whom we all respect. KJ Yesudas would have been in all his glory , appreciated the music of everyone and provided suggestions to improve rather than putting his views open on the winner.(Balamuralikrishna,SPB etc all have been chief guests , but not crossed beyond a line where they make recommendation on the winner).This is people’s show and support,SMS given by people should have been taken into consideration.If Asianet or Yesudas have preferences then let them do it on their own with their capacity. The trust on such interesting programs goes down if things like happens.

  41. Ravi says:

    1. KAPLANA IS A FUSION OF MANY TALENTS
    a. It was superb when a Non-Malayalee Kalpana sang such a lengthy difficult song of Sharath, with so much of tough Malayalam words, so beautifully.
    b. It was still more appalling when she sang ‘ Natha Nee Varum Kalocha”. That song infused all those expectation and emotion of a lady, waiting for her beloved Natha to come to her.
    c. And her 3rd one, the Opera / Western was still more fascinating which showed her power or ability in breath control. It showed her mastery in multi language skills. None of the other two finalists could have done those different beats with such a perfection .Classic+ Melodious +Weston+ Acting. A lady Michal Jackson of India. She is fusion of many a talents.
    2. IT IS NOT THU , THU YAAR
    a. Somebody who could not understand her Western song; and calling it as THU THU should note that these days many a Malayalam songs are taking so many tunes from western music. Call it plagiarism or not and take it as natural outcome in this era of globalization.
    b. I can foresee Music Directors waiting for giving Kalpana her chance. Hope Kalpana will read this and do not belie our expectation from you.
    3. SPURT IN SMS TO KALPANA ONLY ON THE FINAL DAY.
    a. Please not that her SMS count increased from 5000 to 15000, i.e. 200% only after public heard her great performance in that Grand Finale Day. This sudden spurt of her SMS on the final day endorses the temperament of some genuine lovers of Music to the injustice in seeing the jacked up or engineered SMS that the others got for some more reason other than support to their real music talents
    b. This opinion does not mean that other two were not good. The only thing is that they were not even near to the abilities of Kalpana. If somebody still do not agree ‘Let us at least agree to disagree’. Let the time tell and wait for few more months to elapse. Let Kalpana prove her selection, contrary to what has happened in Season 4.
    c. Naturally judges might have given her such an unassailable high marks which could not have been covered up by the SMS the others have got more than Kalpana. Do not have biased views.

    4. SMS = ‘SUTHRAM FOR MARK SAMBADYM”.
    a. All can send SMS as real appreciation. At the same time SMS should not be used ‘Suthram for Mark Sambadym”.or Sympathy Mail Service. Season 4 had succumbed to SMS invasion. However, this year it was the best judgment and Kalpana would eventually keep her critics’ are wrong. Just wait and watch.
    5. HAVE RESPECT TO PROVEN TALENTS ;
    a. Do you think that Yesduas, Anuradha, Chirta could have been bribed or biased? Are those talented singers are such a cheap personalities? Anyone who says otherwise should have proved their knowledge in singing, forcing Asianet to call them as judges. It was Kalpana’s sheer talent and magnificent performance that made them to stood up and clapped.
    b. Anrurada is one of the best judges we have with so much knowledge in other languages. Her knowledge and comments will help the contests to Season 6 tremendously.

    6. THANKS TO ASIANET
    a. ‘Let us be more forthright and take music above castist, religious, sympathetically, parochial considerations. Dear Asianet, you have proved that you can even do business and do justice also.

  42. Kurup says:

    To all those Kalpana fans, ( say 15000,) let me say I am not against her. What is sad to see is that this show was biased towards her right from the start. That is what is making us – the detractors of Kalpana , to question the credibility of her selection as the top singer of ISS -5. There are Tamil shows in which Malayalis have come first – I remember there was a show In Vijay Channel – Airtel super singer , where the first prize winner was a Malayali. Trust me, she never sang any Malayalam songs nor did she do anything to create self sympathy.

    Despite not knowing a single word in Tamil she sang only Tamil songs and was chosen the Top singer in the contest. There was one other guy Roshan who also was a Malayali and he came 3rd or 4th . Ms Chitra was one of the judges. She never showed undue favoritism towards these two kids just because they were Malayalis. But that was not the case with ISS -5. The two judges from T.Nadu who had come to judge the show ISS – Anuradha and Sowmya , were always favoring Kalpana.

    Those who have had eyes would never have missed to note Anuradha’s favoritism towards Kalpana. It was so glaringly visible. Remember during one Malayalam song round when she wasn’t able to sing the song , who rushed to the stage to hug her? Is a judge supposed to act like this. Though it was claimed that Kalpana became emotional and that’s why she wasn’t able to sing, it is all a farce. To be honest, she is not at all confident in singing Malayalam songs . Whenever she is not able to render she comes up with gimmicks like this and judges like Anuradha are there to support her.

    The comment made by one gentleman ” Anrurada is one of the best judges we have with so much knowledge in other languages. Her knowledge and comments will help the contests to Season 6 tremendously. ” is laughable. She may be knowledgable but if she is unable to judge the right talents, her knowledge is of no use to others.

    Whether Kalpana will be able to make a strong footing in Malayalam music industry , that remains to be seen. We’ll wait and watch. Now that it is over, let’s put that to rest and see how the ISS -6 plays out to be .

    Music is above religion, caste or region or language. But undue favoritism and nepotism in selecting the best talent is something that cannot be tolerated !

  43. Baju says:

    Kurup,

    U mean to state that SMS is the criteria to evaluate who sung well? If so, I believe, Antony was having maximum SMS received. No one got more than 40000 SMS. U were referring to lakhs of SMS. Criterea for marks is not based on SMS only, but on judges marks mainly, that people understand. I didn’t send any SMS in the entire season 5. It never means that Kalpana and other singers songs were not soothing to me. Do you think that those who sent SMS were the only viewers for the show? My request to the organiser of ISS season 6 show is – there should not be any option for SMS support atleast in final show. It should be purely on judges judgement.

  44. Prabheesh says:

    Dear Ravi,
    Your comments and me reply..
    1. KAPLANA IS A FUSION OF MANY TALENTS
    I agree with you she is having many talents such as acting and singing but dont over rate..I didint find any of these more than 75% perfection.
    2. It was superb when a Non-Malayalee Kalpana sang such a lengthy difficult song of Sharath, with so much of tough Malayalam words, so beautifully.

    Sharaths song that she sang was 50% out of pitch and she expressed it in face as carrying himalya with her back..This is no doubt an over acting to impress judges and Poor Anuradha fell on it..

    3.It was still more appalling when she sang ‘ Natha Nee Varum Kalocha”. That song infused all those expectation and emotion of a lady, waiting for her beloved Natha to come to her.

    She sang it well no doubt .
    But comparing to Mridulas ‘Sooryakanthi’ this is not at all better.

    4. A lady Michal Jackson of India. She is fusion of many a talents.

    ha ha ha ………Have you heard any song of Michal or any stage performance …..If so you wont be able to make such statement….
    I have heard and seen Kalpanas gimmics throgh entire ISS Season 5…
    Very bore performances .Some of it was excellent i agree but others are just like fancy dress competition and very poor dancing as well. She might have bored and irritated all the audience

    5. IT IS NOT THU , THU YAAR
    I strongly believes indian music is better than any other music all around the world especially Carnatic and hindusthani….Have you heard any outsider performing in Carnatic music…but there are many Indian musicians doing western as well..
    Some of malayalam songs have imitated or used as western ..i agree thats the problem of some of our music directors and not by the problem of our music..
    These music directors knows that it is easy to use western music than karnatic as it is very tough…
    as Kalana done in the Grand finale…
    4. SPURT IN SMS TO KALPANA ONLY ON THE FINAL DAY.
    Each and everyone knows that all others SMS are blocked except Kalapana in the final
    Other wise when all others SMS count reaches 1 lakh , kalpana will get 10 thousand only..
    to hide that reality it was a hidden agenda of Asianet . No more comments for that.

    5. SMS = ‘SUTHRAM FOR MARK SAMBADYM”.

    I agree It is not the problem of other contestants that audience didnot send SMS for kalapana for his overacting and sentiments…Be gentle..and why Asianet continues to say “send SMS to your favourite contestant..” thorough Ranjinis voice.

    6. HAVE RESPECT TO PROVEN TALENTS
    Me and Each and everyone have respect to proven talents…but talent is not the criteria for the best personality…
    According to me.. Yesudass comments and Anuradhas standing oviation have to be avoided..
    One of Yesudas’s comment..
    ‘Kalapana have to be born on any other country unfortunately she born on our country’..
    Is our country is very bad for music talents…?
    Who is A R Rahaman…A man who got 2 Oscar award and other recognition from entire world born and bought up in OUR COUNTRY…

    7.Anrurada is one of the best judges we have with so much knowledge in other languages. Her knowledge and comments will help the contests to Season 6 tremendously.
    If such a best judge…How many Natioanal or even state award that she got….which is her best song..?

  45. Ravi says:

    At least it is obvious now that there are ardent supporters and fanatical detractors to Kalpana, Immanuel and Mriduala. . Same quarrels were there in Season 4, for Joby and Sreenath. Allegations of favoritism for Sreenath by judges were alleged .Many opposed Joby. Now at least down one year, we all know their current position and performance. No need to elaborate further. Frankly I am not against both Immanuel and Mriduala. What I felt that was they were not as talented like Kalpana. Not winning the first price did not deter Sreenath from performing better. Same logic should applicable to Immanuel and Mridula.
    Regarding Kaplana, if she did not come up to expectation of her supporters then, let us stop watching any more ISS and call the show the Idea Star Singer (F) ( F= Fluke) What else to say?.
    All of us seem to be better Judges than all those judges appointed by Asianet. Poor Dasettan who deliberately did a standing ovation (do not believe that it was due to spur of the moment) j, us to see Kalpana be selected! Anuradha is not good judge and does not anything since she did not get any award. Yesudas also is not good judge since he got so many award s, but does not how to judge, behave and what to say. Oh Asianet, why can’t you invite us as judges! We will pronounce perfect judgment!
    Dear friends, let Asianet continue to do this show getting applauds and flaks from audience *If you don’t permit them, then also they will do that till they get sponsors who judges the show by viewer ship. To Asianet “.Show must go on”.
    Dear Music (sup) porters! For a change why can’t’ we appeal Asianet to start some other shows besides ISS. Can Kerala expect, Idea Star Mathematician, Airtel Best Computer Expert, Reliance G.K Master or Nokia Star Communicator? Tell me Yaar ! How many singers do we require every year? Every 3rd youth in state is some sort of a singer. Let us also have some Quiz, Computer, anchor to call them Wizards or Experts and, Masters also
    Good bye! I quit.

  47. Kurup says:

    Baju

    I have already made my points clear in my comments dated Sep. 29. Anyway Season -5 was a show which was rigged and the worst-ever to be conducted where favoritism was rearing its ugly head right from the word – go ! Whether or not anyone accepts it , i am least bothered.

    Now that the show is over , it is time to move on .

  48. Sunil says:

    Yesudas showed his unprofessionalism again by recommending and speaking favoritism to a contestant in the show at final stage. Even though he is a talented singer, he shown many times his bad and wrong behaviour. Asianet fooled the viewers and judges changed thier views and the decision was unfairly biased.Finally the result was predetermined and diagonal. Let any of the judges comment on conformity with fact or reality of the reality show, then the truth will come

  49. manoj says:

    kalpana took sharath’s songs as her first song, MG radhakrishnan’s song as the second one to impress sharath and MG sreekumar in finals.

    Asianet played a lot to make her the winner. camera turned to chithra and anuradha everytime to show that they are clapping.

    ranjini and nasriya asked to veiwer’s vote for kalapana .

    It was a comedy that yesudas supported kalpana just for being kalpana’s father is yesudas friend. yesudas..you fool… you lost all your dignity…

    So far all keraliets thought you are something…great. being partial will not suit for you man.

    It was mridula who sang very good in finals, then immanual…. no way the emotional blackmailer kalpana.

    Idea star singer also lost the popularity…. see votes were in lakhs for najeem and joby…but now the winner kalpana got only 10+ thousands….

    Idea star singer is a big cheating….everything is fixed….by asianet.. no pointing SMSing.

    You are the looser asianet ..by making kalpana winner

    I have been gone through all comments posted the likes and dislikes what ever they had in their minds.But all are in one mind about the standing ovation has given by 2 judges along with Yesu Das Sir and high appreciation from the great Singer before the declaration of the final verdict.They might have been right in their comments and judgement may also correct.But more than 90% of the public never thought and never agree the final song sung by kalpana is not that much of out standing than the other 2 singers.Though technically they are right,according to the rule and calculation of SMS she was far behind from the other 2 & there was no chance to come in the first position.Every body knows how Antony came in to the final though he was 12 marks behind which was clearly announced by Mr.M.G.Sreekumar.So at least from this season please think before you send SMS to the contestants.Even then you are adict in send SMS please send only to the contestant he or she who sung well and not got the good marks because of the impartiallity from the Judges as we have seen the previous seasons.

    kalpana doesnt in the least deserve the title. Its all a humbhug showWe viewers have wasted our valuable time in seeing this biased show WWhat was the need in giving her standing ovation by none other than my favourite malayalam singe rMr K J Yesudas SO DEFINITELY OTHERS HAD TO FOLLOW suit.YOU PEOPLE COMMENT about the pronunciation when malayalees sing other languages. Then how about Kalpana was her malayalam perfect? not at allEven MG Annan when he sings kannada song krishna nee begana baaro is not at all perfect even his english ‘voice’ is heard as’oice’.Then one more thing why do you have tamil round hindi rounds. NO REALITY SHOWS in other languages in N India has this

    I had high respect for K.J. Yesudas, but now I feel he is no saint. In front of entire media he was putting his influence, so that his friends daughter could win the grand prize. Ask any of those judges, what they know about western music.
    First of all Kalpana already being a play back singer should not been allowed to compete with the juniors,other wise ,even people like Chitra could compet there.
    If Mr Yesudas was so keen to help Kalpana he could have done it elsewhere .

    Ranjini, she is a disgrace & insult to all malayalies & our mother tongue Malayalam, Asianet & other channels should not allow so called anchors to misuse malayalam.
    Please do not spoil the purity of malayalam. Ranjini should be kicked out of the show,whom is she trying to impress. Was she not born & educated in Kerala.

    I think its high time that Kerala Government should intervene & make sure that the anchors & news readers in all Malayalam channels, are to use malayalam in its pure form without any mixture of english words in it.
    Please do not pollute any language, be it english , hindi or Malayalam.
