MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 05 , 2015           07.30 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : Vidur’s Film Diary completed 6th year of its existence in May 2015. June 2015 marks the beginning of its journey in the 7th year. ]

In 2013 – 14 my success rate was 40%. In 2014 – 15 it jumps to 55%. This is unprecedented for any acting class. I am continuously writing my Film Diary since 6 years. And to my utter surprise I noticing that there were no lean months in these 6 years. There were more than a dozen working students every month.

For the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015, please watch the 05 videos posted below :

Obituary :

===============

 

Aadesh Shrivastava :

—————————–

Aadesh Shrivastava was a music composer and singer . Over the course of his career, he had composed music for over 100 Hindi films. On September 5, 2015 , just a day after he turned 51, he died of cancer in Kokilaben Hospital, Mumbai .

Aadesh ji got his first big break with film ” Kanyadaan “ [ 1993 ] . Among the singers who sang in this movie, there was Lata Mangeshkar who sang his first song – Oh Sajna Dilbar, a duet with Udit Narayan which became popular in radio. But the film and the rest of songs went unnoticed. The same thing happened with ” Jaan e Tamanna “ , but he bounced back with Aao Pyaar Karen ” . One track “Haathon Mein Aa Gaya Jo Kal” was a hit. His other films are ” Salma Pe Dil Aa Gaya ” andShastra “ . The chart buster “Kya Ada Kya Jalwe Tere Paro” from the film ” Shastra “ got him in the limelight once again.

Aadesh ji  sang a number of hit songs such as “Sona sona”, “Shava Shava”, “Gustakhiyaan” and “Gur Nalon Ishq Mitha”. He won accolades for his work in Kunwara ” ” Tarkieb ” andShikari in the year 2000. In 2001, his success continued with the movieBas Itna Sa Khwaab Hai

In 2005, he was a judge on the talent hunt show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2005. He returned to television as a judge on Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2009. His semi-classical song Mora Piya from Raajneeti became a hit in 2010 .

 

Mohan Bhandari :

—————————–

Veteran TV actor Mohan Bhandari died after a long battle with brain tumour on September 24, 2015. He was in his early 60s. He was struggling with the illness for the last few years after suffering brain hemorrhage.

He appeared in several serials including ” Khaandaan ” on DD ” Karz ” , ” Parampara ” , ” Jeevan Mrityu ” , ” Pathjhad ” , ” Gumraah ” and ” Mile Sur Mera Tumhara “.

He was also seen in the Bollywood films like ; ” Bawandar “, ” Pratighaat ” ,  ” Mangal Pandey -The Rising ” & ” Paheli “.

Currently he was working in a serial called “ Tere Shehar Mein “.

 

 Hemant Bhosle :

—————————

Hemant Bhosle, the music director who succumbed to cancer last month on September 28, 2015 in Scotland, was not only son of legendary Asha Bhosle but also was a talented composer who perhaps did not get enough opportunities to create his own distinctive style. He died at the age of 66.

He had a feel for romantic duets; especially those he composed for Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle. The composer worked in several films with Majrooh Sultanpuri , who penned some of his popular tracks.

Two of Hemant’s early films were Eshmayeel Shroff’s ” Agar ” and ” Taxi Taxi ” [ 1977 ] in which Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle had come together to sing ‘Laayee Kahaan Ae Zindagi’. ” Taxi Taxi ” [ 1977 ] and ” Anpadh ” [ 1978 ], did not fare well at the cash counter. ” Damaad ” [ 1978 ] was a minor box-office success. Hemant also gave the score for Anil Sharma’s ” Shraddhanjali ” [ 1981 ] , again a minor success, and ” Bandhan Kuchchey Dhaagon Ka ” [ 1983 ].

Hemant Bhosle had also composed music for Marathi Bhavgeet “Sharad Sundar ” and ” Yeu Kashi Priya “ , all of which his mother had sung.
It is very sad that his sister Varsha Bhosle also died young at the age of 56 in 2012.

Vidur’s Film Diary – May 2010


Month of May started at the promising note. Sajid Khan’s laugh riot opened to bumper houses. After the drought of nearly two months because of IPL, news of house full boards outside cinema halls screening “ House Full ” are heartening.

RT @taran_adarsh: Day 1 stats: House Full is lower than 3 Idiots, but bigger than MNIK. 3 Idiots was released during Christmas, while HF non-vacation period…

RT @taran_adarsh: Eros has sent me the official figure for Friday of ‘House Full’ in India: Its 10 crores nett. This is @akshaykumar biggest opening ever ..

http://bit.ly/aQZHc9 B.O. update: ‘Kites’ takes fantastic start, but reports negative

Obituary
==========

Govind Moonis : He died on May 05, 2010. Present generation of film goers may not be familiar with his name but for many connoisseurs and buffs of films, he was the man who introduced Madhuri Dixit in a film called “ Abodh ” , a Rajshri Productions film, which was scripted and directed by him. The film, when got released, tanked badly and it was forgotten as a dud. But without doubt it established a legend and Govind Moonis shall always be remembered for this. He started his career as assistant director to legendary Ritwik Ghatak. Later on he assisted Satyen Bose in classics like “ Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi ” and “ Dosti ”. He co-scripted “ Raat Aur Din ”, the last film of legendary Nargis. He wrote films like “ Uphar ” and “ Jeevan Mrityu ” also for Rajshri Productions. He has to his credit “ Nadiya Ke Paar”, one of the greatest hits of Hindi cinema as a director. This film was later re made by Sooraj Barjatya as “ Hum Aapke Hain Kaun?”. In between he made several successful and not so successful films. He was a lyricist also and wrote lyrics for many films.

Mac Mohan : Mohan Makhijani AKA Mac Mohan died of cancer on 10th May 2010. The immortal Sambha of “ Sholay ” was 71 years old. He started his acting career with Chetan Anand’s “ Haqeeqat ” in 1964 and acted in almost 175/200 films. After several inconsequential roles, gradually he started getting important assignments. In 1975 he got his most famous role of Sambha in a film called “ Sholay ”. Though he had just one dialogue in the film and that dialogue had just three words but it made him famous and almost immortal. The dialogue, “ Poore Pachas Hazar ” refuses to fade away from public memory even today.

Lalita Phadke : She was a playback singer from yesteryears. She sang for Ashok Kumar starrer ” Saajanand Dilip Kumar starrer ” Nadiya Ke Paar ” In both the films lyrics writer was Moti B. A. I know Moti B. A. personally and used to visit his place quite often. He, like me , was from Deoria.  In ” Nadiya Ke Paar” , Lalita Bai gave playback for Kamini Kaushal.
