Idea Star Singer hit rock bottom yesterday.

The tenth round format was bad to start with – four performances per participant, and only two performances per day (Don’t get me started on the weird “performance” rounds – Singing with Family and Friends…what next? ‘Performing with Pets’?). Yesterday, even with four commercial breaks and very detailed analysis of the performances, they could not fill the one-hour slot. So, out comes Didi’s birthday bash footage from the archives.

What an idea sirji

In July, when mallus had just started planning their vaikittathe paripadees around Idea Star Singer, I posed a question on my blog, “Do you have any dope on Meera Nandakumar?”

Soon I realised there were a lot of guys on the Net who were asking the same question, and many started landing on my blog – I guess mine was the only site then that mentioned Meera Nandakumar and Idea Star Singer together.


By the time Meera started accounting for 20% of the traffic to my site, I decided I had to do something. But Google Search yielded zilch. Google Alerts gave me a lot of updates about some Meera Nandakumar in Cisco. Mallu mags were mum; Mallu mums, mad…


Then Idea Star Singer celebrated their 100th episode and YouTube adopted Meera wholesale…but still no d-o-p-e. Then last week Malayala Manorama, Mangalam and Indian Express ran stories on the kid.


Highlights…Meera is a Class XII student of Bhavan’s Vidya Mandir, Elamakkara. 


Before ISS – where she started as a contestant – she appeared in Jeevan TV’s Star Chat and Family Fun, and Amrita TV Vanitha Ratnam. She has also acted in Veedu, a telefilm. 


Meera’s big screen debut will be in Lal Jose’s Mulla Poovu, with Dileep. Heppy?

Not to be confused with Pathrakkaran Sunny

A defining moment from mallu’s latest craze, Idea Star Singer, a talent hunt packged as a reality show, or is it the other way around?

And by the way, do you have any dope on Meera Nandakumar?
