Vidur’s Film Diary – June 2016


IMG_8211_edit_edit_edit

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           July 10 , 2016           07.30 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : With this post, Vidur’s Film Diary enters in the 8th year of its existence. In all these 8 years, I have endured my journey with truth, tenacity, belligerence and bellicosity. ]

Satyameva Jayate

 सत्यमेव जयते

In the era of falsehood, Vidur Acting Institute has chosen the tortuous path of truthfulness. In the season of deceit, Vidur Acting Institute has taken the pledge of being factually correct. You can go through the below mentioned facts of my success story and can check and verify them. I have full faith that ” Truth alone triumphs ; not falsehood. ”

सत्यमेव जयते नानृतम् ,
सत्येन पन्था विततो देवयानः ।
येनाक्रमन्त्यृषयो ह्याप्तकामा ,
यत्र तत् सत्यस्य परमं निधानम् ॥

……………….. मुण्डक उपनिषद्

English Translation

Truth alone triumphs ; not falsehood.
Through truth the divine path is spread out ,
by which the sages , whose desires have been completely fulfilled, reach where that supreme treasure of Truth resides.

…………………………………… Muṇḍaka Upaniṣad

But do check the tall claims of so-called “Best Acting Institutes of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Institutes of India”. Grill the so-called “Best Acting Trainers of Mumbai” or “Best Acting Trainers of India” and you will see through their hollow claims. Hold a second, they can even claim that they are the “Best Acting Trainers of the World”. My God ! anything is possible in the unethical world of ACTING TRAINING in India.

As an ACTING TRAINER my success rate was 40% in the year 2013 – 2014 . It jumped to 55% in 2014 – 2015. And in 2015 , it zoomed up to 62.35 % . This is unprecedented for any ACTING INSTITUTE or ACTING TRAINER across the world. I am continuously writing Vidur’s Film Diary since 8 years. And to my utter surprise I have noticed that there were no lean months ever. It never happened that a month came and there were none of my students in any of the 5 fields of entertainment, which my diary covers. In fact there were more than a dozen working students every month.

From Drop to A Pearl : Journey of Narendra Jetley


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           APRIL 10, 2016           10.00 P.M.

With Narendra Jetley in my Office

With Narendra Jetley in my Office

If my memory is not failing me, the year must have been 2010. Narendra Jetley was a students of Batch No. 32. [ Technically he is not a student of VIDUR ACTING INSTITUTE ].

I still remember his first few tentative baby – steps in the class. Confused but eager to correct himself ………… doubtful but always ready to remove doubts …………………. prone to mistakes but always willing to make amends. It was a normal journey of a budding actor. He, at that time, was just an ephemeral, inconsequential drop of water in the seamless, endless ocean of FINE ARTS.

It has been 5 years now. And if I look back and try to analyse, the same ephemeral, inconsequential drop of water has miraculously metamorphosed as an immortal, precious pearl.

And let me make it clear. It is his personal victory. All his accomplishments are fruits of his own tireless efforts. No acting trainer or acting institute can make that kind of transformation in any actor.

Just look at his body of work and variety of roles, which he essayed in his ads.

—————————————————————————————————-

—————————————————————————————————-

In between he has done variety of roles in few films also. It’s just a start. His zenith has yet to come.

 

Movies / Serials / Telefilms :
 
 
1) One Night Stand, (Dir – Jasmine D’Souza)
   StarringSunny Leone,Tanuj Virwani
2) Ishq Click, (Dir – Anil Ballani)
   StarringAdhyayan Suman,Sara Loren
3) Gabbar, (Dir – Radhakrishna Jagarlamudi,krish)
    Starring: Akshay Kumar,Kareena Kapoor,Shruti Hasan
4) Raja Natwarlal,(Dir – Kunal Deshmukh)
    Starring: Emraan Hashmi,Humaima Malik,Paresh Rawal
5) Hum Tum Shabana, (Dir – Sagar Ballary of Bheja Fry)
   Starring: Tushar Kapoor,Shreyas Talpade,Minisha Lamba
6) Ur my jaan, (Dir – Aron Govil)
   Starring: Mikaal Zulfikar,Aman Verma
7) Don Bhaisahab, (Dir – Virag Mishra)
  Starring: Vinay Pathak,Mona Singh,Satish Kaushik
8) Powder,TV Series by Yash Raj Films (Dir – Atul Sabharwal)
9) Punaah, Telefilm (Dir – Shashant Shah)
   Starring: Ranvir Shourey
10) Aftermath, (Dir – Rama Rau)
      Screened at Cannes Film Festival 2011

—————————————————————————————————-

In these 5 years, Narendra Jetley worked hard and made his mark. He had no connections of any kind in the world of films. But he made his place in the industry with sheer grit, tenacity and will power.

Today when I look back and watch his growth an a thinking actor, I feel so proud.

I see a very bright future for him and wish him all the best.

Obituary :

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

 Feroze Rangoonwala :

—————————

Eminent film historian Feroze Rangoonwala, credited with having written the highest number of books on Indian cinema, is no more.

He has left behind a wealth of information on Indian cinema, particularly at a time when efforts are on to save cinematic material for archival purposes.

Rangoonwala was best known for creating the first book of Indian filmography in 1969, Indian Film Index, and his magnum opus, Pictorial History of Indian Cinema.

He started as a film publicist in Mumbai in the early 1950s. Then Rangoonwala wrote 15 major books spanning a career of five decades. These included Indian cinema, Past and Present in 1983, and several monographs on different film personalities including those on filmmakers Guru Dutt and Bimal Roy – some written for the National Film Archives of India. Other books include Satyajit Ray’s ArtSeventy-five years of Indian cinema, and Bharatiya Chalchitra Itihas.

Rangoonwala finally called it a day in 2006, as illness dogged him. He died on August 04, 2015 at the age of 82.

Unfortunately Rangoonwala remained least acknowledged by the Indian government circles and did not receive any accolades.

Life As An Acting Trainer : 26 Years – 92% Success Rate


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 02, 2015           07.00 P.M.

 

Mumbai is flooded with acting institutes. Everyday a new acting institute mushrooms and starts claiming that it is the best one. There are few old ones also. Though, they have passed their prime but still claim to be in the race. Then there are few upstart trainers, who have delusion of grandeur and success. It is but natural that aspiring actors get confused and are hoodwinked by these con trainers. These “Bunty & Bablis” try every trick from the book and sometimes succeed also in trapping these aspirants.

Therefore it becomes imperative to chronicle true success stories to save gullible students from the clutches of unscrupulous and con acting trainers. I am writing this blog so that such ARVIND KEJARIWALS of acting training should get exposed and shouldn’t go unchallenged.

When ” Bajrangi Bhaijaan “ got released and took the box office by storm, there were several articles in the news papers. It collected 100 crores by the first weekend and thus became the 1st ever Hindi film to enter THE BIG CLUB so quickly.

Bombay Times, dated July 21, 2015, published an article about THE BIG CLUB. It chronicled all the 35 Hindi movies till date, which are the biggest earners.

Out of 35 films, there is 1 film in 300 Crore Club / 1 film in 250 Crore Club / 3 films in 200 Crore Club / 7 films in 150 Crore Club and 23 films in 100 Crore Club .

I am so happy to announce and stating this fact with great pride that out of these 35 block-buster films, there are only 3 films which have no students of mine [ JUST 3 FILMS ]. These films are ” Ghajini ” , ” Holiday ” and ” Ek Villain “ . Apart from these 3 films my students are there in all the remaining 32 films. This is unparalleled feat. This is unprecedented success story. This is so humbling as an acting trainer. I don’t think any other acting trainer can claim such humongous success story. Even FTII, Pune [ Film & television Institute of India ] can claim such success in recent times. FTII gave many luminaries to the film industry but that was eons ago. It was during Shri Roshan Taneja’s time. This so-called premier (?) acting institute’s recent accomplishments are negligible compared to mine.

I am giving the whole list of films published in the July 21, 2015 issue of Bombay Times. Name of my students working in these films are also mentioned. It is now for the discerning public to judge the facts.

Vidur’s Film Diary – July 2015

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           AUGUST 23, 2015           11.25 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. ]

[  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 had releases 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 some acting trainers , 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 .]

[  PROCLAIMATION :  In my diary I have been posting above mentioned   DECLARATION  since May 2014. It is now 1 year and 2 months. I suddenly noticed that the ungrateful and disrespectful students are now without work and had no releases recently. They don’t seem to be having any future. So from this month onwards I will stop posting the said   DECLARATION . ]

In 2013 – 14 my success rate was 40% . In 2014 – 15 it is 55% . For the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015, please watch the 05 videos posted below :

Obituary :

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

 Sheila Ramani :

—————————

Sheila Ramani (March 2, 1932 – July 15, 2015), also known as Sheila Kewalramani, was introduced into Bollywood by the film-maker Chetan Anand. She is known for her role in the movie Taxi Driver. She was born in Sindh and was one of the few actresses from Sindh to join the Indian film industry.

Sheila Ramani played the lead role in Funtoosh (1956) , another Navketan film opposite Dev Anand. But she remained embossed in memory for Taxi Driver (1954). According to Times of India, ” With her languid sway in a dark sari and shiny blouse in the song ” Dil jale to jale ” and her easy abandon in an off-shoulder dress to the dance track ” Dil se milake dil ” – she oozed spunk and sexuality, cool and control. Ramani was a precursor to the urban modern heroine we see today. She set the stage for them.”

Vidur’s Film Diary – December 2013


2
MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 10, 2014   04.25 P.M.
Month of December 2013 will be remembered for ” Dhoom 3 “ , the highest grosser film of Hindi film industry. It earned 250 crores within 14 days and dashed all previous box office records . It is still going strong as I  write and publish this blog. It’s total domestic collection till date is INR 272.50 crores. ” Dhoom 3 “ has become all-time blockbuster.
” Krrish 3 “ , a Hritik Roshan film , stands second with the All – India net collection of INR 243.24 crore in India and INR 300.00 crore worldwide . ” Chennai Express “ stands third with the collection of INR 226.70 crore.
It is so uncanny that all the Hindi films of 200 crore club have my students working in various fields. Here is the list :
1 – ” 3 Idiots “ [ 200.57 crores ] ………………………….. Kareena Kapoor
2 – ” Chennai Express “ [ 226.56 crores ] …………… Rohit Shetty / Shekhar Ravjiani / Nikitin Dheer
3 – ” Krrish 3 “ [ 244.60 crores ] ………………………… Hritik Roshan / Priyanka Chopra / Vivek Oberoi
4 – ” Dhoom 3 “ [ 272.50 crores & still counting ] ……… Uday Chopra / Katrina Kaif / Ashish Singh
[ My 10 students in all the 04 films of 200 crore club ]

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 .
