At least for some time, people who were at the Country Club International for the Shaan-Saagarika show will think that peace is two sips of booze. The crowd on both sides kept waving the peace sign and saying "Do ghoont", and all Saagarika had to say was, "It's a dry day." When she did understand what these psychedelic faces meant, she promised to learn the song and come back to Hyderabad.

But no, you weren't allowed to get disappointed. The MC finally got interesting when he volunteered to sing the song. Otherwise, he just kept saying that the show was aptly called Rang Barse - when, in truth, there was no color pouring. It rained though, but that was later, as if God was proving a point to the police.

Actually, even the police was enjoying the show. And just when they were getting a little bored about not having to do anything, some people in the crowd started throwing plastic bottles onto the stage. "If you don't stop throwing bottles, we'll stop the show," said Saagarika. And it was the turn of the police to throw bottles. Out, that is. They got a bang out of it. In fact, until the end of the show, you could see policemen looking for any more bottles to look important.

Shaan was grand - he was the star, after all. And the people loved him. He knew just how to strike a chord with them, as wonderfully as with his backup band, The Groove.

The siblings did more medleys than songs. Except for Shaan's more famous solo numbers like 'Musu, Musu', 'Woh Pehli Baar' and 'Tanha Dil', almost nothing was a whole song. Why restrict yourself? "We'll sing however we want, you dance however you want," said Shaan. That was the whole show for you. And that's what made it most interesting.

There was also a forgettable fashion show during the break choreographed by the 'maestro' Imran Khan, the highlight of which was a dance number 'Rang De' from Takshak, by the Miss Country Club runner-up, Neelam. The dance was good, but what was hilarious was that one of the hunks dallying around as a prop was supposed to throw some color on the girl while she was dancing. And he managed to throw it right into her eye from about two inches away.

She missed her footing just for a second, surely cursed the guy for the next 30, and went on. Not bad at all. The models enjoyed themselves too, and at the end of the show they came onto the stage and danced through the last two songs, Q-Funk, and Rang Barse (naturally), providing a live music video to the audience.

Shaan and Saagarika, given the unusual time to perform, did really well, the whiffs of color providing the special effects, the colored people providing the alien touch, the clean clothed making for the tension and the models giving some comic relief. A family entertainer, though the single guys danced most.
