MUMBAI: After months of battling it out, band Saadhak was crowned winner of MTV Kurkure Rock On at the finale held in Mumbai on Monday evening.

Khilagh and Dhairya were the other two bands which made it to the finals.

The finale saw live performances by the three bands where they had to spin original tracks to win the title. Joining them were Euphoria- the band and singer Sona Mohapatra who enthralled the audience.

The band members of Saadhak include Willi on vocals, Naitik on percussions, Raj on bass, Tonmoy on drums, Sachin G on violin and Nirdosh on guitars.

‘Kurkure Desi Beats Rock On with MTV’ began in July this year with 50 talented Desi rockers who were auditioned in four cities of Kolkata, Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai. They were then randomly organised into 10 bands three of which reached the finale. Kailash Kher, Ram Sampath, and MTV VJ Nikhil Chinapa were the judges for the band hunt which was looking for a new music Gharana- Desi Rock.

The show finale will be telecast on MTV on 21 November at 7 pm. The grand prize of the contest includes an album deal with India’s leading record label, T-Series, a music video produced by MTV, plus a mega concert besides state of the art instrument set.

MTV’s brand new Gharaana – Desi rock has announced the number one desi rock band of India – Saadhak!

After facing challenges in every episode of ‘Kurkure Desi Beats Rock On with MTV’, the final platform was a much awaited concert, where the bands performed their original tracks. Joining them were the masters of the game themselves – Euphoria, the band that brought rock to India & the effervescent Sona Mohapatra, who enthralled audiences with their smashing hits.

The winners were not only decided by the judges but also by the fourth judge - a voting audience. The winning gratification was more than any musicians dream. A contract with T series and a music video that would be exclusively promoted on MTV along with a custom made Gibson guitar. If that was not enough there is only more awaiting the desi rockers. They would have the chance to participate in ‘Kurkure Desi Beats Be Heard’ – which if they win, they get $20,000. Besides the best band there were a couple of other honors decided specially by the expert panel of judges. The award for the best desi rocker was given to Parth from Dhariya and the best guitarist in the series was Prathyush from Khilaugh. He was also awarded a Gibson guitar.

These newly formed bands were then placed in a pimped up rocker pad that could only be every musicians dream. Challenges were thrown at them every week, followed by deadly eliminations and killer twists and turns. The competitions were based on performance & skill and the contestants were judged by an eminent panel including Kailash Kher, Ram Sampath & Nikhil Chinapa on their ‘Music Quotient’ [M.Q.], ‘Pagalpann Quotient’ [P.Q.] and ‘Desipann Quotient’ [D.Q.].
