Show: Nachle Ve
Time: 7 pm, weekdays
Station: Imagine
Cast: Saroj Khan, Terence Lewis and dancers

It's a combination of a do-it-yourself guide and a reality dance competition. Popular choreographers Saroj Khan and Terence Lewis appear in individual episodes, pick one song, and mix and match Indian and contemporary steps on them respectively. It eventually leads to a competition between the two star-students on the show.

It's a homegrown concept, and is quite handy as far as learning dance is concerned. The viewers are slowly taken through each portion of the song with ample repeats for them to learn as they watch from their homes. The previous season only involved learning and was restricted to one form of dance. This season’s content is far better.

On the sunny side, people can learn to dance to various popular songs. One hasn't seen Lewis yet, but Khan, without any hiccups, teaches steps that she or any other choreographer has assigned to a song originally.

The end, however, is a bit boring because the competition is over before you know it. Also, the time slot may pose problems for those heading home in traffic. Also, apart from expressions, one doesn't want to see anyone's close-ups on the show, please!

What we like
Learning dance steps for popular songs.

We don’t like
The climax seems a bit abrupt.
