Vidur’s Film Diary – March 2015


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           APRIL 01, 2015           06.00 P.M.

[ DECLARATION : In my film diary, since May 2014, I have started mentioning names of only those students, who respect me as their teacher and accept and regard my contribution in their journey of life. All the other students, who worked this month but are not mentioned here, are the ones, who refuse to acknowledge me in any way. I can sense their abhorrence to my personality. I am not a sweet-talker. So I know that somewhere they were rubbed the wrong way . I also feel their attachment to the people, who claim to be the re-incarnation of Constantine Stanislavsky and are sweeter than any sweet delicacy on this earth . Such students are free from any obligation from my side. GOD BLESS THEM ! ]

 

My journey continues without such students . It marches ahead without their support . It flourishes despite their criticism and false propaganda . For the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015, please watch the 05 video posted below :

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 – October 2011


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           NOVEMBER 01 , 2011            00.25A.M.

This is the 30th edition of my film diary .

Films released in the beginning of this month failed to create any magic at the Box Office . Though ” Force “ collected some decent figures , but the magic of previous month was missing.

” Ra.One “ , released on Deepavali day , changed the scene completely. Though panned by critics , its collections were impressive .

From last Deepavali to this Deepavali , though 239 films got released but only 09 films were declared super hits . They are : ” Bodyguard ” , ” Ready ” , ” Singham ” , ” Yamla Pagla Deewana ” , ” Murder 2 ” , ” Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara ” , ” Mere Brother Ki Dulhan ” , ” Tanu Weds Manu  “ and ” Band Baaja Baaraat ” .

Some prominent disappointments were : ” Guzaarish ” , ” Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey ” , ” No Problem ” , ” Patiala House ” , ” 7 Khoon Maaf ” , ” Game ” , ” Aarakshan ” and ” Chatur Singh 2 Star ” .

Asha Bhosle has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for the maximum number of studio recordings – singles . She has recorded 11,000 solo and duets in more than 20 Indian languages .

Kareena Kapoor was immortalized in wax , when her wax statue was unveiled at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum at Blackpool , United Kingdom on October 27 , 2011 . She is the 6th Hindi film star to be having a wax statue at Madame Tussauds . Other 5 are  ; Amitabh Bachchan , Aishwarya Rai , Shah Rukh Khan , Salman Khan and Hritik Roshan .

Obituary :
=================
Jagjit Singh :
————————
Basically a Ghazal singer, Jagjit Singh , sang for almost 40 films in his 4 decade long career. He was immensely and equally popular among the classes and masses due to his inimitable style.
He completely and single-handedly changed the world of Ghazals with the help of poignant  lyrics and modern orchestration.
Since I am a huge fan and his contribution to the music world is immense , I would be writing a separate blog about him .
