We love television and we love dancing.
We love it even more when we watch people dancing on TV.
And now that there are so many options to choose from, we pick the ones that have left a mark.
JHALAK DIKHHLA JAA
What’s it about? This Colors show is the desi version of Dancing With The Stars, and is just as good.
Watch it for... The three judges, Madhuri Dixit, Remo D’Souza and Karan Johar, along with the two hosts, Manish Paul and Kapil Sharma, provide much entertainment. The dancers are brilliant, with mindboggling, beautiful choreography.
The flip side: We can't seem to find any!
|DANCE INDIA DANCE|
What’s it about? One of the early shows, this Zee production is the template most dance reality shows today are based on.
Watch it for... The talented dancers. Also, judges – Mudassar Khan, Feroz Khan and Shruti Merchant – are unscathed by jaded TV formats.
The flip side: Too dramatic. Mithun Chakraborty gets caught up in his own demi-god status.
What’s it about? Relatively well-known couples dance with their partners on Star Plus.
Watch it for...The contestants, Terence Lewis and Shilpa Shetty.
The flip side: Hosts Gautam Rode and Karan Wahi try too hard; Sajid Khan is rude.
|BOOGIE WOOGIE |
What’s it about? This Sony show is the oldest one on TV and has some super talented kids.
Watch it for... The judges – Jaaved Jaffery, Naved Jaffery and Ravi Behl. They’re never ever rude to contestants.
The flip side: Some dances have been vulgar and cheap.
