I am sure this will be the beginning of a series of successful programme for these young talents and may get to perform many more such packed venues in INDIA, UAE, OMAN, BAHRAIN, QATAR, KUWAIT and other parts of the world.

Let us look at the details of the show as it evolved.

Vow!!! Reality Stars in Real. Amazing performance by the team of Anand, Roopa, Ratheesh, Praveen, Latha and Rashmi.

The 2000 plus seat National Theatre Abu Dhabi was full - a surprise to many of us considering the summer holiday period. What would have been the scenario if this programme was held during normal time?.

Full round of applause to Anand and team for their good preparation and execution of the programme from start to end. Every one enjoyed the programme to the full.

A surprise was in store for them and for all when the show was inaugurated by Smt. KPAC Lalitha.

Sri Reji Mannel, famous radio presenter based in UAE compered the show.

Anand was the first one to be introduced, then followed by Rashmi Vijayan, Praveen, Latha Krishnan, Ratheesh and finally Roopa. The introduction itself brought variety as the singers mixed with the audience and came out from amongst them when introduced.

They sang 28 songs in the following order:

1. Ratheesh - Hrudaya sarassile

2. Roopa - Aa nimishathinte

3. Roopa/Ratheesh - Odakkuzhal Vilikketto

27. Rashmi/Anand - Kannum kannum maafia

28. Final songs - Melodious medley of several hit Hindi/Tamil/Malayalam mix by all 6 Super Stars.

Irrespective of age, everybody was dancing - so much fun filled moments that when Rashmi announced her song Mayya mayya - audience replied by saying that Vayya vayya. Ratheesh and Roopa were applauded each time when they came on stage. Praveen and Latha mesmoriesd the audience with their numbers. Anand - a total leader - held on to the steering and controlled it very well. Not to leave out Rashmi - if you ask a question - who will be the next Usha Uthup - we have an answer - Rashmi Vijayan from UAE. Overall, it was a memorable musical evening which one and all present in the packed National Theatre Abu Dhabi auditorum will remember for ever.

A very big thanks to KERALA SOCIAL CENTRE organisers for inviting them to Abu Dhabi to perform in live and real. I am sure their objectives for social cause were also duly achieved by this event.

Let this be the golden beginning for these young talents and May God bless them all to give many more such venues and opportunities in future.

  1. Marvelous indeed! Thank you Rameshji for capturing the essence of the show and sharing it with all of us. For those of us who were fortunate to be part of the excellent musical treat, it was like reliving those wonderful moments.. for those who missed it..( what a big loss!!) it must be surely the next best thing, to go through the 'jhalaks' of the show through your write up and videos..

    I am sure the immensely talented and fiercely committed youngsters led by the energy pack Anand will go a long way! They fully deserve the support of all music lovers around the world.

    The efforts of the Kerala Social Centre ,Abudhabi is commendable in this regard and let us hope other members of the 'music- lover' fraternity will come forward to showcase the talents of these youngsters.
    Warm regards,
