Saarang 2008 – Did you miss it ?

I did. For the last three years. And it sucks.

Looks like this Saarang’s Pro Show was the largest crowd puller, ever. Hindu reports that the singer Karthik gave a rocking performance. I know how the stadium would have yelled for Engeyum Epothum.

Karthik returned to his rockish best with “Enakku Oru Girlfriend Venumada” sending fans into a frenzy before his hand lent a nice Elvis-y touch to “Baar Baar Dekho,” a surprise for retro-lovers.

Though what he sings mostly is in the realm of boy-band songs and love ballads, while performing, he does it with the attitude of a rockstar with plenty of scope for audience participation. Yes, it helps that Bennett is quite something with the lead guitar.

Calling the IIT Core members to the stage, he launched into what’s considered an anthem for the youth, “Mustafa Mustafa” for a finale.

Sensing they wanted more, he captured the mood with “Engeyum Epothum Sangeetham Santhosham”.

And, junta was on cloud nine: “ARaaa-raaaa-reee-reeee Yo!”

That was a glowing review. After posting this, I went back and found that the author of the article was Sudhish Kamath. That explains !!

BTW, Did you miss it too ?

  1. Man, the last time I went to Saarang was back in 01. Even then, they were a class apart.

    It took me a while to recognize the songs, I have no clue about the singer, but I bet it was amazing.

    Ahh good times, good times.

  2. oh no,

    i missed sighting some super figures..

    i missed seeing some local college attus coming in sleeveless and torturing our eyes..

    i missed the Informal events, where boys and girls do kasamusa in the name of having fun..

    i missed the JAM thats usually well conducted my jimmy xavier…

    i also missed cursing some Northies ala “tamil paaattu podungada, hindi baadungala”…

  3. Yelling, laughing and flirting are the three activities happened during karthick concert.
    Besides this, singer karthick sung some good peppies from the nice movies in Saarang 08. If you missed the event by partying with friends ,another chance for you to watch the event again. catch the videos in http://www.minglebox.com/saarang2008.
