Indian Idol reaches its climax

THE REALITY show, "Indian Idol", on Sony, which has taken the nation by storm, has reached its finals as Abhijeet Sawant, a Mumbai boy, and Amit Sana from Bhilai will compete for the top position.

The results will be out by March 5 after the SMS polls are counted. But the show on February 24 was memorable as the competition between the two was very close. Even the judges who have been involved (Farah Khan, Anu Malik, Sonu Nigam) in every stage of the selection process were baffled about the results. The special judge for the last episode was Kajol. Now, "Indian Idol" will be off the air for a few months and revived with a new talent hunt later this year.

Orma is memorable

DIRECTOR K. K. RAJEEV has become a household name in Kerala. All his serials had strong characters that were able to strike a chord with the viewer.

And the highlight is that they don't drag on, as he tries to end the story in a limited number of episodes.

Remember that his last serial "Avicharitham" was just a 40-episode serial which not only won critical appreciation but was a TRP topper. His latest serial "Orma" (Asianet-7.30 Monday-Friday) is turning out to be another feather in his cap as it has an innovative and off-beat theme. The protagonist Girly, played brilliantly by Priya Raman, is a fighter who never gives up in life.
