MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           AUGUST 01, 2014           08.15 P.M.

[ DECLARATION : After May, 2014, I have started mentioning names of only those students in my diary, who respect me and accept my humble contribution in their journey of cinema. All the other students, who, though, worked this month but deny my contribution and refuse to even acknowledge me, are not mentioned. They are free from any obligation from my side. GOD BLESS THEM! ]

After a dull May 2014 and June 2014, July 2014 brought happy news on my career front and it became a month of celebration. A new, significant and important film  ” Lekar Hum Deewana Dil “ was released on July 04. Armaan Jain, grandson of legendary Raj Kapoor, made his debut in the said film. He is my student.

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

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/ …
