MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           January 15, 2017           06.45 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : Vidur’s Film Diary is now in the 8th year of its existence. In all these 8 years, unlike so-called “Best Acting Institutes of Mumbai” // “Best Acting Institutes of India” // “Best Acting Trainers of Mumbai” // “Best Acting Trainers of India” // “Best Acting Trainers of the World”, I have endured my journey with truth, tenacity and belligerence.

Surprisingly “Top Acting Institutes of Mumbai” // “Top Acting Institutes of India” // “Top Acting Trainers of Mumbai” // “Top Acting Trainers of India” // “Top Acting Trainers of the World” are conspicuous by their absolute silence on this front.  ]

Vidur’s Film Diary – July 2016


IMG_8211_edit_edit_edit

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           August 28 , 2016           10.30 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : With this post, Vidur’s Film Diary enters in the 8th year of its existence. In all these 8 years, I have endured my journey with truth, tenacity and belligerence. ]

Satyameva Jayate

 सत्यमेव जयते

In the era of falsehood, Vidur Acting Institute has chosen the tortuous path of truthfulness. In the season of deceit, Vidur Acting Institute has taken the pledge of being factually correct. You can go through the below mentioned facts of my success story and can check and verify them.

But do check the tall claims of so-called “Best Acting Institutes of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Institutes of India”. Grill the so-called “Best Acting Trainers of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Trainers of India” and you will see through their hollow claims. Hold a second, they can even claim that they are the “Best Acting Trainers of the World”. My God ! anything is possible in the unethical world of ACTING TRAINING in India.

As an ACTING TRAINER my success rate was 40% in the year 2013 – 2014 . It jumped to 55% in 2014 – 2015. And in 2015 , it zoomed up to 62.35 % . This is unprecedented for any ACTING INSTITUTE or ACTING TRAINER across the world.

Obituary :

===============

Omprakash Sonik :

—————————-

Omprakash Sonik , better known as Omi, of the well-known duo Sonik-Omi passed away on July 07, 2016 in a private hospital following cardiac arrest.

A widower, he was 77 and is survived by his son Som and daughter Sudha.

 Omi was the nephew of the blind music director Master Sonik and together they formed the noted Sonik-Omi team which provided music to nearly 125 Bollywood movies in the 1950-1980s.

Born and raised in Sialkot (now in Pakistan), they moved to India after Partition in 1947 and lived mostly in Delhi.

In 1950, the visually challenged but great singer Master Sonik arrived in Mumbai with his young nephew in tow, hoping to make a career in the film industry which was on the threshold of what was later known as ‘golden era’ of its music.

With many stalwarts already holding sway over the listening audiences, the Sonik-Omi duo faced an uphill struggle, fighting near-starvation at times, Omi even joined in a female chorus group to afford a square meal and the uncle-nephew lived in a tiny slum room on the outskirts of Thane.

In the early 1950s, Master Sonik got a break to direct music for films like Mamta, Mehfil and Ishwar Bhakti, but their music failed to catch the ears of the listeners.

They were reduced to near-paupery and doing odd jobs merely to survive, till a few years later when the late Madan Mohan offered Master Sonik the crucial job of music arranger and the late S. D. Burman also followed suit.

The young Omi also got an opportunity to assist the legendary composer Roshan for films like Taj Mahal, Aarti, Barsaat Ki Raat and many others.

The big break came in 1965 from film-maker G. L. Rawal of Rawal Films, for his new venture, Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya and the musical track composed by the Sonik-Omi team became a rage. AAJA RE PYAR PUKARE ……… by Lata Mangeshkar / DIL NE PHIR YAAD KIYA …… by Mohammed Rafi , Mukesh & Suman Kalyanpur / KALIYON NE GHOONGHAT KHOLE …….by Mohammed Rafi / YE DIL HAI MOHABBAT KA PYASA ……. by Mukesh / LO CHEHRA SURKH SHARAB HUA …….. by Mohammed Rafi are still loved by music connoisseurs.

A couple of years later, Rawal offered them for Aabroo whose music also proved immensely popular and Sonik-Omi became a noted name in Bollywood.

Later, they composed music for films like “Mahua” (with the haunting Dono ne kiya tha pyar magar), “Dharma” (the famous qawwali Raaz ki baat keh doon to, jaane mehfil me phir kya ho), “Raftaar” (Sansar Hai ik Nadiya, Dukh Sukh Do Kinare Hain),  Truck Driver, Mehfil, Beti, Dharti Ki God Mein, Umar Qaid, Chowki No. 11 (which had the memorable hit number sung by Shobha Gurtu, Kahin ho na mohalle me halla) and Ladki Pasand Hai.

Over the years, the uncle-nephew pair made a formidable reputation for themselves with compositions in over 125 movies.

While Master Sonik passed away in 1993, Omi continued to compose music and his last musical track was for the film Biwi No. 2 in 2000, after which he eased into retirement.

In the past few years, Omi largely remained away from Bollywood but composed certain non-film and private albums, religious music and other genres of music.

 

Mubarak Begum  :

—————————

Mubarak Begum, an acclaimed play back singer started her career with light music recitals performed for All India Radio. Her career as a playback singer began in 1949 with the Indian, Hindi-language film Aaiye. It was the Indo-Pakistani composer Nashad who gave Mubarak Begum her first break. The first song she recorded for films was “Mohe Aane Lagi Angrayi, Aja Aja Balam” (Aaiye, 1949). She also sang a duet with the then upcoming Lata Mangeshkar in the same film. A major hit in her career was the song “Kabhi Tanhaiyon Mein Yun” for composer Snehal Bhatkar in Kidar Sharma‘s film Hamari Yaad Aayegi which is, till this day, regarded as a classic rendition.

Mubarak Begum died on 18 July 2016 at her residence in Jogeshwari after a prolonged illness.

Mubarak Begum has sung a total of 178 songs for Hindi films during her career, and the total number of films where her songs have appeared is 115.
