Vidur’s Film Diary – June 2014


2

 

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JULY 05, 2014           02.25 P.M.

लो आज हम ने तोड़ दिया रिश्ता -ए -उमीद ;

लो अब कभी गिला न करेंगे किसी से हम ॥

After a dull May 2014, June 2014 also ended as a lacklustre month. From 30 / 40 students, who used to work in the Indian film industry in a month, it has now come down to 12 / 15 students in a month. It is almost half. But it does not mean that I am slipping down on the sandy, slippery path of  the tinsel town. The main reason for this whittled list is that I have now decided and stopped taking credit of the 7 years of shared, sham and shameful legacy [ August 2005 to August 2012 ] .

It is derogatory and worthless to fight for credit. It is beyond my dignity to mention names of those students, who despite being my students, don’t acknowledge my contribution in their professional lives. It is a 7-year long deafening silence from their side. So I also refrain from mentioning their names. From my side, I make them free from any obligation. From now on I don’t have any responsibility towards them and they also don’t owe me anything. Good luck to them! May they be blessed in their lives!

July is going to bring a happy news and it is going to be a month of celebration. A new film  ” Lekar Hum Deewana Dil “  is going to be released on July 04, 2014. Armaan Jain, grandson of legendary Raj Kapoor, and cousin of Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, is making his debut in the said film. He is my student. And he is not uncouth, uncultured and ungrateful like few others.
I am posting links of the 04 Vidur Club News videos. You can watch them for the full understanding of my body of work in 2014.

Vidur’s Film Diary – September 2012


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER  01, 2012           00.30 A.M.
Throughout September , Ek Tha Tigerkept on raking money , though the fury was subsided . The film is almost nearing the lifetime collection of3 Idiots ” .
Month of September , apart from ” Ek Tha Tiger ” ,  gave us 2 superhit films .Raaz 2 was first hit of the month . AndBarfi was a critical and commercial success . 3 super hits in a row and in a month is such a good thing for crisis ridden Hindi film industry .
Tweets of Mr. Taran Adarsh and Mr. Komal Nahta , which I re-tweet , shows the current trends of the industry .

Tweets

Now good news! #Joker may be a disaster of epic proportions everywhere, but it’s breaking records in Fiji. Bigger hit than #Don2 there!

#EkThaTiger [Week 3] Tue 87 lacs. Total: 193.09 cr nett.

#Murder2 *1st Week* 36.5 cr… #Jannat2 *1st Week* 35.55 cr…#Raaz3 expected to collect 33 cr – 36 cr in just *opening weekend*. Bravo

#Raaz3 collected Rs 55.25 cr nett in Week 1, which is *higher* than the lifetime business of several Emraan Hashmi hits. Wow!

#EkThaTiger 4th Week: Fri 42 lacs, Sat 77 lacs, Sun 1.12 cr, Mon 35 lacs, Tue 31 lacs, Wed 30 lacs, Thu 28 lacs. Grand total: 198.39 cr.

#EkThaTiger heads towards 200 cr… #Raaz3 is biggest hit of Bhatts… #Barfi opens to fab response… Bollywood shining!

#Barfi earns the respect of the audience and critics. #Barfi wows Boxoffice. #Barfi stakes claim on awards. Salute!

#Barfi Fri *est* 9.20 cr nett. Limited shows at plexes. Excellent!

#Raaz3 [2nd Week] Fri *est* 2.25 cr. Grand total: 57.50 cr nett.

#Barfi Fri 9.20 cr, Sat 11.50 cr. Total: 20.70 cr nett. Sat witnesses 30% to 40% jump in several circuits. Limited shows at plexes. Superb!

#Raaz3 is a Blockbuster, in view of nominal costs on one hand and revenue generated from India theatrical+Sat+Music+Overseas on the other.

#Barfi *revised* Fri 9.20 cr, Sat 11.50 cr, Sun 13.90 cr. Total: 34.60 cr nett.

In exactly a month, Bollywood witnesses 3 major Hits – #EkThaTiger, #Raaz3 and now #Barfi. Bollywood Shining!

#EkThaTiger collected 72 lacs in its 5th Week. Grand total: 199.11 cr nett. All Time Blockbuster.

#Barfi has grossed 100 cr *worldwide* in 10 days.

#Heroine Mon 3.75 cr, Tue 3.25 cr. Total: Rs 32 cr nett.

#Barfi [2nd Week] Mon 3.25 cr, Tue 3.10 cr. Grand total: 82.55 cr nett.

#Heroine Weekend 25 cr, Mon 3.75 cr, Tue 3.25 cr, Wed 2.7 cr, Thu 2.4 cr. Total: 37.1 cr nett.

#Barfi [2nd Week] Weekend 17.1 cr, Mon 3.25 cr, Tue 3.1 cr, Wed 2.6 cr, Thu 2.5 cr. Grand total: 87.15 cr nett.

Barfi! opens to excellent houses in multiplexes.

Opening of Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal horrifyingly poor. Shows in multiplexes of raipur had to be canceld due to absence of audience!!

Bad times for Bollywood. Heroine entails 10 crore loss; KDM proves a big disaster; OMG fails to pick up at many centres after a dull start.
