Young Jagdish Raj

Young Jagdish Raj

I have seen many films of Jagdish Raj . But I first noticed him in a commercial campaign . It was for CHARMINAR Cigarette . He was playing a press photographer in that campaign and his tag line is still ringing in my mind – ” MEHNAT JAB KARTA HOON , TO TASALLI POORI CHAHTA HOON . ”

I can still describe the scene of his ad for a discerning connoisseur of films . With a camera on his shoulder and sweat on his face , he was running on the roads of Bombay [ now Mumbai ] and clicking photos . He stops at a signal , lights a cigarette and says , ” MEHNAT JAB KARTA HOON , TO TASALLI POORI CHAHTA HOON . ” His sweat-filled face is still fresh in my memory .

I , later on , came to know that he is Jagdish Raj . Gradually I saw many of his films and became acquainted with his body of work .

It sad that he is gone . Though he played his innings well and completed his journey satisfactorily but departure of a known figure of our films is sad .

Vidur’s Film Diary – July 2013


2.jpg
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           AUGUST  11, 2013          11.20 P.M.
Month of July 2013 will always be associated with  ” Bhaag Milkha Bhaag ” . The film got rave reviews and was a winner at the box office too .
A new face , Girish Kumar , also came into limelight this month with  ” Ramaiya Vastavaiya ” . This scion of Tips , made his debut with the film . He was praised for his acting skills and the film did decent business at the box office .

Tweets :

 

Tweets of eminent trade analysts Mr. Taran Adarsh and Mr. Komal Nahta , which I re-tweet , present the current and authentic trend of film industry :
  1. #BhaagMilkhaBhaag is fast racing towards the 100 crore mark. Overall, Super Hit [Blockbuster in North circuits]

     

    1. RAMAIYA 1st week actual net collections: Rs. 22.2 crore. D-DAY 1st week figure: Rs. 15.75 crore. BMB reaches Rs. 82 crore in 2 weeks. Wow!

    2. LUV U SONIYO fails to get the audience’s love or attention. Read my review of the film, starring two new faces, at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/luv-u-soniyo-review/ …

    3. ISSAQ is too boring to make people fall in love with it! Read my review of the Prateik-Amyra starrer at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/issaq-review/ …

    4. All releases of today open to dull houses. Shows of some films cancelled at some centres due to absence of audience!

    5. BAJATEY RAHO, a comedy thriller, is a dull fare, devoid of good comedy and exciting thrills. Read my review at http://komalsreviews.wordpress.com/2013/07/26/bajatey-raho-review/ …
