Dazzling, not captivating
If you are one of those star-struck movie buffs, then Nerul’s DY Patil Stadium was the place to be on Sunday.
However, the closing ceremony of the third edition of the Indian Premier League wasn’t all that spectacular. Yes, it did have an impact on the excitable crowd but the show wasn’t mind-boggling or out-of-the-world by any standards.
Oscar winner AR Rahman, Bollywood hottie Bipasha Basu and Shahid Kapur, the hunk, weren’t exactly ‘sizzling’ on the night. While Rahman was clearly lip-synching as he ‘crooned’ his way to Chale Chalo, Vande Mataram and Jai Ho - thank god the crowd sang the chorus - Bips and Shahid were lacking in fizz.
