MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 02, 2014           01.15 A.M.

[ DECLARATION : In my diary, since May 2014, I have started mentioning names of only those students, who respect me as their teacher and accept my contribution in their journey of life. All the other students, who worked this month but are not mentioned, are free from any obligation from my side. GOD BLESS THEM ! ]

May 2014 and June 2014 were bad for my career. Number of students trained by me plummeted drastically. But it again became rosy and sky-rocketed to the earlier position from July 2014. The reason is stated above.

I am posting links of the 05 videos. You can watch them for the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 .

Vidur’s Film Diary – May 2014


2

 

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JUNE 06, 2014           08.05 P.M.

This is the 61st edition of Vidur’s Film Diary. 5 long, momentous and eventful years have passed since I started writing Vidur’s Film Diary to chronicle my monthly achievements in the film industry. I post Vidur’s Film Diary in the first week of every month. I am ecstatic that I did not miss a single month till date.

On this historic day, I must express it with profound sadness that the 61st month, i.e. May 2014 is the worst month of my acting training career till date. Though 17 films got released in May, but representation of my students is negligible. For the first time only 04 students of mine got work in this month. But what can one do if  ” JHAND ” films are being made? What can one do if a ” JHAND ” newcomer hits the screen, becomes butt of  jokes and is universally panned and ridiculed by critics and general public alike for his ” JHAND ” acting, but is praised to the skies by his equally ” JHAND ” trainers? In such ” JHAND ” times it is advisable to keep quiet and wait for one of the biggest debuts of 2014 and 4 most outstanding debuts of 2015.

I am posting links of 4 Vidur Club News Videos. They provide a pictorial testimony of my unprecedented accomplishments in 2014 :

1 : ” Jai Ho ” :  http://youtu.be/cZzBa4sHXMQ
2 : ” One By Two ” :  http://youtu.be/0WCMfQiPdGI
3 – ” O Teri ” & ” Main Tera Hero ” :

Vidur’s Film Diary – November 2013

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           DECEMBER 10, 2013          06.10 P.M.
Month of November 2013 will always be special for me . In the 24th year of my acting training career , I gave one more star to the Indian film industry in November 2013 . Urvashi Rautela is my latest student to hit the box office with her debut film ” Singh Saab The Great “ and join the film world .
November will also be known for Krrish 3 , a Hritik Roshan film , a Diwali release , which brought cheers to the Hindi film industry . It is the new member of 100 Crore club of Hindi films . It earned 100.00 crore in just 4 days . It finally earned 243.24 crore in India and more than 300.00 crore worldwide . It has become the highest grosser of Hindi film industry till date . It is another feather in my cap as it has 03 of my finest students .
” Satya 2 “ disappointed . ” Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela “ earned handsomely at the box office . It is the latest entrant in the 100 crore club of Hindi films .
” Singh Saab The Great ” was a moderate hit andGori Tere Pyaar Mein was not so successful .

Vidur’s Film Diary – October 2013


2.jpg
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 07 , 2013           01.45 P.M.
Month of October 2013 will always be infamously known and remembered for ” Besharam “ , a Ranbir Kapoor film , which is the biggest ever Hindi film release till date with over 3000 prints . It is also Ranbir Kapoor’s biggest flop till date . It is said to be the desi version of Lock , Stock And Two Smoking Barrels ” .
” Boss “ , a Akshay Kumar film , also bombed at the box office . Towards the end of the month , 05 films got released but they all failed to make mark in any way .
It is sad and unfortunate that 5 luminaries of Hindi film world left us for their heavenly abode this month . It made this month more gloomy and melancholic .

Anil Kapoor made very impressive debut on TV on October 04 , 2013 with his highly acclaimed TV series ” 24 ” . It is Hindi adaptation of the American TV series of the same name , where Anil Kapoor played President Omar Hassan , the part , which is being played by Neil Bhoopalam in Hindi ” 24 ” .

Anil Kapoor

This American TV series is produced by 20th Century Fox . Till now 8 seasons of 24 episodes each have been made . The novelty of the show is that each episode takes place over the course of one hour . Another novelty of the series is the use of split screen .

Kiefer Sutherland played the protagonist Jack Bauer in all the 8 seasons of American ” 24 ” .

Anil Kapoor essays Kiefer Sutherland’s part in the Hindi version . I was eagerly waiting for this series . Main reason was the immense popularity of the American version and the hype which was created around the Hindi version . I also wanted to watch Anil Kapoor on TV .

Another very personal reason to watch the show was the TV debut of my student Adhir Bhatt . He is playing 2nd in command in ATU [ Anti Terrorist Unit ] . He called me before the premier of the show .

I am pasting the following graphic from the Wikipedia , which shows his name prominently . Only 9 actors are mentioned in this list . Undoubtedly these 9 are the most important characters of ” 24 ” .

When it was announced in the press that Anil Kapoor is making ” 24 “ in Hindi , some upstart acting trainers started claiming that they are the official casting directors of ” 24 ” . They even auditioned some gullible aspirants . One can visit their facebook page and can find this wrong , mischievous , boastful and false information . I watched the series very carefully , but I don’t see their names as official casting directors anywhere in the above mentioned Wikipedia list or in the credits .

These upstarts acting trainers painted town pink with the news that so many of their students are acting in the series and this became possible only because they are the official casting directors of the series . They carried this mischievous and misleading propaganda throughout the shooting of the serial . I don’t know how many gullible aspirants got impressed with this claim and took admission in their institute . After telecast of the serial , instead of many names ( as claimed by them ) , they dished out just 3  names . Adhir Bhatt is one of them . I fail to see 2 other names in the above mentioned list . Obviously , as usual , it must be a blink – and – miss role .

As for their claim about Adhir Bhatt , it should be pertinent to know that Adhir Bhatt is the student of Mr. Kishore Namit Kapoor and the fact of the matter is that I trained him there .

I pity these GAALI GURUS of Facebook Acting School . They are desperate to be in the race but they have nothing to show as their own accomplishments . Therefore apart from making false claims , they have now started mentioning students of other trainers as their own . Can falsehood succeed ? No it can’t ! In public arena you can’t survive on falsehood .

I have mentioned in one of my earlier blog that one day dust will settle and the scenario will be clear for all to see . Time has come . Dust has started settling down . Picture is slowly becoming clear . Soon every false claim will be exposed and people will demand answer .

I have already given my answer in the form of my NEWSLETTER . It is available in 2 versions ; internet as well as print format .

On behalf of all the students and staff of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters  , I congratulate Adhir Bhatt on his stupendous success . He is doing fine job and deserves kudos for his nuanced performance .

VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre would also like to congratulate him .

I conclude with the famous quote , ” SUCCESS HAS MANY FATHERS , BUT FAILURE IS AN ORPHAN . ”

Vidur’s Film Diary – August 2013

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 05, 2013          00.35 A.M.
Month of August 2013 will always be known for Chennai Express ” . The film is the fastest 100 crore earner in the history of Hindi cinema and finally it crossed collections of ” 3 Idiots “ also . So officially now it is the highest grossing film in the history of Hindi cinema . It collected INR 222 crores and still running .
First week of the month got some 6 poor and forgettable films . But the second week changed all . This month also created history because of  ” Love in Bombay “ . The Joy Mukherjee and Waheeda Rehman starrer film got theatrical release after 42 years of its completion .

Vidur’s Film Diary – February 2013


2
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           MARCH  01, 2013          04.05 P.M.
Month of February , 2013 will only be remembered for the unexpected success of films like ; ” Special 26 ” and ” Kai Po Che ! ” . ” Vishwaroop “ also generated sparks and some controversy but it died down soon . Not so impressive performance ofMurder 3 “ was a shocker .
Tweets of Mr. Komal Nahta and Mr. Taran Adarsh , which I re-tweet , shows the current trends of the industry .
